Leaving Cash Behind: Using a Digital Wallet For a Week

It’s been just under two years since Google came out with Google Wallet, a revolutionary way to use your Android smartphone or tablet’s NFC capabilities to pay for stuff that you regularly buy. Since the service first came out, there are now a number of devices which are capable of using it, provided you’re also on the right carrier. It also supports MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express credit cards.

Will it fail? Will it become a media sensation?

Sennheiser HD 598 Headphones Review and Giveaway

There are only a few things which can unite people more than music. People who enjoy the same tastes in music tend to get along better, or simply enjoy sharing their favorite bands to each other. In any case, great music is good to have, but you also have to give it justice by playing it through great hardware. Forget about those cheap $10 earbuds, you’ll need to invest in some quality headgear to hear your music the way it was meant to be heard. Therefore, a good start would be listening through some audiophile-quality headphones, such as the $250 Sennheiser HD 598. And, if luck would have it, you may be able to win one at the end of this review!
