For quite some time now, I’ve been using my iPhone as my camera. I think the last time I brought my Canon SLR on a trip, was when we visited Cuba back in late 2015/ early 2016.

Using the iPhone as a camera makes things much easier. You always have your phone on you, so there’s no issue with not having a camera to take photos with. Continue reading Did You Know About This Hack For Taking Photos With An iPhone?

Win an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus from Gogo

iPhone 6 Giveaway

I just came across a giveaway from Gogo Inflight that is definitely worth sharing, especially if you’re in the market for a new iPhone!

While I’m not a fan of the new, bigger iPhones, they still seem to be quite popular. Unless Apple comes out with a smaller version like the models up to 5S, I guess that I’ll be getting one of these (probably the newer version) in a year or so when my contract is up.

Wonder What Flights Are Above? Ask Siri

I’ve had an iPhone for years and find it to be an invaluable device.

Since I teach kids 1:1 in various locations and don’t have a physical office, my phone also serves as my computer (so to speak) throughout the day.

When Siri was first introduced, it sounded like it had the potential to be a useful addition to the iPhone. At first I played around with it but I gave up bothering with it within a couple of weeks. I find Siri to pretty much be a gimmicky, useless app. And it’s not like Siri understands what you ask her most of the time!

Jumping By the Home Run Apple, Queens, NY

A couple of weeks back I got to take Lucas to his first Mets game. I wrote a post about it here. With baseball being my favorite sport, I had to get him started early.

Right outside the main entrance to Citi Field is the Home Run Apple. It used to be inside of Shea Stadium (the Met’s former home), behind the centerfield wall. At Shea, each time a Mets player hit a home run, the apple would pop up from the hat it rests inside of.

While the Mets were building Citi Field there was a lot of worry as to what would happen to the apple. The Mets decided to replace the original apple with a brand new one. This upset many fans but at least the original would be displayed at the new stadium!
