Are Millennials Changing the Way We Sell?

In short, yes. It’s a common thinking these days that millennials aren’t buying. They’re much more free spirited than past generations- so we assume they aren’t trying to settle down and buy homes. While I’m sure this can be true of some young people, generalizations like this can be dangerous. It can be the difference […]

Mobile Phone Buying Guide: February 2015

This edition of the mobile phone buying guide is a bit of a tough one. We’re entering a period that I like to call “upgrade limbo”. What is upgrade limbo?

What to expect in mobile during 2015

As usual, 2014 was a busy year for mobile. Apple released not one, but two bigger iPhones, Amazon jumped into the market with the Fire Phone, Android and iOS continued their dominance, mobile payments got a huge boost with Apple Pay, and mobile phone car integrations got a huge boost with Apple’s CarPlay and Android Auto.

For years now, loyal Apple users told me I was missing out no matter how much I protested. I was told the iPhone experience was amazing and that it just worked better than an Android phone. If I used one, I’d never go back to Android, or so I was told. I spent October finding out for myself.
