Have you ever found yourself in that situation where you're watching a movie or TV show, and think to yourself, "hmm I wonder how tall that actor/actress is?" No? Well good, because that means you aren't an OCD freak like me. If, by chance, you said yes, then I have the perfect website for you!

5 Reasons Why Frankie Grande Is Unbearable To Watch



If you've watched Big Brother at all this summer, then you're probably familiar with Frankie Grande. As he would assuredly want you to know, he's related to Ariana Grande (they're siblings). After watching this jerk run around as if he were high on thirty shots of espresso these past few months, I thought I'd try and knock him down a peg or two. So, why exactly is this guy unbearable to watch? Read on...

iPhone 6 Barely Faster Than iPhone 5S



According to BGR.com, at least. Of course, BGR dresses it up nicely by saying that the iPhone 6 is "significantly" faster, but the numbers say otherwise. The benchmark program Geekbench 3 rated the iPhone 6's multi-core performance at 2920, while the 5S scored 2540. To put that in layman's terms, you'll notice practically zero difference when switching from one to the other in terms of performance.

Gaming is another matter. 3D intensive applications will run probably run better on the 6, though still, I wouldn't expect anything mind blowing. As I've been saying for years now, it just seems like smartphones have hit a wall in terms of technological development. They're getting more feature-filled, to be sure, but companies seem to be struggling to find ways to draw more power out of the silicon microchips they're equipping them with.

8 Ways To Read Faster Than You Do Now


Hey all, I really enjoyed writing the following article for Lifehack and figured I'd share it here since my audiences are a bit split:

Contained in that little (huge) article are eight things I learned in college about how to both read faster and remember what you read.

The basic point to take away, I think, is that you don't have to read books in their entirety to understand what they're about and their overall significance.

Hopefully after reading that you'll be blazing through books much more rapidly than you did before!

Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia Review



Sorry I've been gone so long; I've been focusing most of my efforts recently on writing articles for Lifehack.org (which is going pretty well I'd say).

Right now I thought I'd post a quick little blurb about a little (read: big) encyclopedia about Star War: The Old Republic.

I received it in the mail yesterday, and I've gotta say, it's one of the best things ever if you're a fan of Star War's old republic era, which, as you know, I am!
