Smart's Unli Data Plan 2000 gives you any iPhone or Android phone for free -- w00t!


I recently got wind of a new-ish offer from Smart where they give you any iPhone or Android phone for free with a subscription to Unli Data Plan 2000.

I think this is a great deal, and no, I am not getting paid to say that. Top picks are of course the iPhone 4S and Samsung's Galaxy S3. And your plan gives you unlimited data, which is all that really matters, eh? Check out the press release here.

Just be warned. The lock-in period is a longer-than-usual 30 months.

Also… We all know why this offer exists. Yes yes, the iPhone 5 is coming out this September, so in less than 30 days your fancy new phone will be obsolete! You win again, technology…

Civilization V: Gods and Kings Review


I am a huge Civilization addict, so here's my review of the latest Civilization V expansion, Gods and Kings. Like many Civilization addicts, I was disappointed to see religion disappear in Civ V. Gods and Kings attempts to correct this omission. After losing many days to this game (just…one…more…turn…), I'm ready to give my verdict on whether or not the expansion was successful at doing this. I have mixed feelings about it.
