Jay-Z is set to release a new album later this month. This will be his first album since Magna Carta Holy Grail in 2013. Which seems like a long time for an artist to go without an album. But this is Jay-Z and he has a ton of other projects on the go. Including: launching a venture capital fund to invest in start-ups, producing films and documentary series, and sold part of Tidal to Sprint. In addition, Jay-Z released a song last year titled “Spiritual” which was in response to police brutality. He’s also appeared on several tracks in the last few months. Not to mention the recent addition to his family. I don’t want to downplay all that he’s done over the last couple of years, but I do want to focus on his new album.
First of all, the album is set to be released on June 30. What’s interesting about this is that the album will be exclusively released through Tidal. Why? Well, with Jay-Z as the owner of the company, it kind of makes sense, doesn’t it? But this isn’t a new concept for Jay-Z. In 2013, his album was released to one million Galaxy owners as part of a deal with Samsung. What is even more interesting is that this release will be a first for his new partner Sprint. Sprint acquired 33% of Tidal earlier this year.
All of this is really interesting, yes, but let’s talk about the album itself. … Read the rest

Beginning Friday morning in Sprint stores, Sprint will offer the iPhone 6s 16GB for $1/month and the iPhone 6s Plus for $5/month
This new offer is crazy. Why don’t airlines have these price wars anymore? Keep in mind this is a lease and you don’t actually own the phone.

To get this deal you have to join Sprint’s iPhone Forever program. You have to trade in your old smartphone or be upgrade-eligible if you’re a current Sprint customer. The old deal was $15 a month.
Higher memory configurations of the iPhone 6s are $5.77/month for the 64GB and $10.53 for the 128GB. For the 6s Plus, higher memory configurations cost $9.77/month for the 64GB and $14.53 for the 128GB. Which are both very good deals if you want to lease your phone and plan on staying with Sprint for the next few years.
“Once again it is clear that the best place to get the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is Sprint. New and existing customers who trade in their current iPhone 6 can now get a device for only $1/month, making it the best way to get the iPhone – and a yearly upgrade is included in this charge. We are certain that more people will continue to switch to Sprint because of the great service and value we offer.” ~Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure

Here are all the ways you can place a reservation. You can pre-check your eligibility right on Apple’s company’s website. It then stores this information for pre-ordering time. Do you want the iPhone mailed to you or fight the crowd in the morning. The fastest way to order online is to use the The Apple Store app.
With the Apple Store App there is no stalling. I would avoid using the website. This is the best method because it is fast, easy to use and you can even use Apple Pay. Ironically you will be using your old iPhone to buy your new iPhone. If you don’t already have the app. You can download it now. However if you no choice but to use the website make sure you have the order page up and ready to go.

Soon you wont have to worry about the long arm of the law stopping you from enjoying the device you paid for on another provider. The cellphone unlocking bill made it through the House. President Barack Obama is sure to sign it to law soon as it hits his desk. said he’s looking forward to signing it into law.
This is something that Americans have been asking for and I am pleased that we were able to work together to ensure the swift passage of legislation restoring the exemption that allowed consumers to unlock their cell phones. ~Bob Goodlatte House Judiciary Committee Chairman
The Library of Congress Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) gave phone owners an exemption to unlock their phones in 2006 but changed their minds in 2013. Right now if you want to unlock your phone you have to jump through some very serious hoops. Not to mention that unlocking a a phone without a carrier’s help could get you in trouble, and even jail, under current law. Last December, the major carriers and the FCC agreed to make life easier for phone subscribers to unlock their handsets.… Read the rest
