I've got my badges and counting down the days to CES 2013 in Las Vegas!  Book your hotel and travel now.  Also download the new CES Mobile App.  Go to the Official CES webpage to get all the information you need!  See you there!

iPhone 4 vs. iPhone 5

Top 5 things I like about my new iPhone 5

1)     Lightweight and noticeably thinner

2)     Camera quality is much better (especially videos)

3)     Nice screen size -- extra row of widgets

4)     Passbook (will be even better when more retailers added)

5)     iOS6  (especially when I update apps not having to re-enter password)
