If anyone has ever had an unlimited phone plan on any of the major carriers they know the price is astronomical. Just normal phone plans can range from $60 to hundreds, that’s sometimes even without texting or data. AT&T, the biggest mobile phone carrier in the world, doesn’t even offer the unlimited plan anymore, instead proposing a 300 mb, or 3 GB plan. Now if you use even a small amount of email, or browse the web you need more than 300 mb’s.
So with all these insane costs some phone companies arise with much cheaper, unlimited phone plans. Virgin Mobile, Net-10, Republic Wireless are all some of these corporations. Republic Wireless is the winner of cheapest unlimited plan with $20 a month. Until now you had to make a sacrifice for this amazing deal, which were the horrible phones. They didn’t offer any smartphones that feature the Android or iOS mobile device software. Republic now features the Moto X for $200 with a 2 year contract, or $300 with no contract. The plan does cost a bit more with the Moto X, $30 for unlimited with 3G, and $40 for unlimited with 4G.
Overall the $300 down payment and the $30, or $40 a month is crazy. This is defiantly a very nice plan and something a lot of people should be looking into. With all the money you save from cutting your monthly phone plan down, you could do some really cool things.

Recently after the September 18th release of iOS 7, windows and android attempted their usual attacks on Apple. With the new iDevice software update there are some android based features added in. Such as the new multitasking system of being able to universally search from any home page. This system has been used in many versions of android for multiple years.
Apple CEO Tim Cook says that the iOS/Android, and Mac/Windows comparison isn’t valid. Considering that the different operating systems on mobile devices and computers are very different. Microsoft has dominated the market with a partner model allowing other companies to produce the computers in a way known now as “PC’s.” Apple has always taken its own path in selling its computers, iDevices, and being able to be exclusive. This has allowed them to be very unique with their products, and take the lead in sales over the tablet market.
In my opinion Apple has something very special with their software, computer model, iPads, and of course the iPhones. Steve Jobs, the previous CEO, and founder of Apple brought this company to the top with his creative abilities and appreciation in the visual side of the product. Even the inside of Apple products must look to a high standard, and cannot be sloppy in any way. This is the image Jobs gave Apple and since after his death in 2011, the company seemed to begin a decline in the special design of their products.
Apple will always have something going for them and their products with continue to sell. Windows and Android in my opinion cannot try compare to the iOS software. They are so different in so many ways.

The lovely people at Mashable comprised a list of top 15 apps downloaded in the US consisting of both iOS and Android and we thought we should share it!
Has your phone become extremely large? Does it sag your pants when it’s in your pocket? Well Alcatel has the solution! The Phone Remote!
Setting all jokes aside, this is actually something real, sadly. How it works is simple, The “remote” looks like a samsung cell phone form the 1990’s and it can connect to your phone via bluetooth while you’re hauling it in the bed of your truck.
Luckaly, this small divice will be made available for the new Alcatel phones coming out that are dubbed to have a screen too large for the average pocket. Although these are for now just for Alcatel phones, it is rumored that they might be coming out for other brands of phones. If this is true, it will be very hard to compete with the SmartWatches coming out.
