Xbox 360 v. PlayStation 3

The great debate.... What's better, the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3? It's a very simple answer, If you're a casual gamer, like me, go with the PlayStation 3, but if your life revolves around gaming then the Xbox 360 is a must. The reason is that hardware-wise the PlayStation is superior with an integrated blue-ray player and it also has a free online multiplayer network, which is very convenient. In my personal opinion the Xbox 360 has a few good games that are only available for their system but the majority of popular games are available for both, giving the PS3 the upper-hand but the Xbox 360 requires you to pay to play online which is a deal breaker for me. The Xbox 360 gives a better overall online experience with little to zero lag while the PS3 suffers from occasional lost connections and some lag when the severs are being bombarded with players. In all honesty both systems are great for playing games and will provide hours upon hours of entertainment, but it all comes down to how much you want to play and what you want to use it for.

Apple Iphone 4s

The Apple Iphone 4s. If you thought the Iphone 4 was impressive just add steroids and you'll have Apple's newest smartphone. This phone has a powerful Dual-core A5 processor, a built-in assistant called Siri, an 
8 MP camera with improved HD video recording and a new battery that suggests a longer talk time. From the people I've talked to everyone loves Siri as it is quite helpful and has a well designed interface. The only problem is that Apple is notorious for introducing a new product every few months so I would wait of the Iphone 5 to come out, but if you're looking for an easy to use device today and don't plan on upgrading anytime soon this might be the phone from you. This phone is available for At&t, Sprint and Verizon.
