US Bank screwing its customers

US Bank is charging a $2 ‘Check Reject Fee’ for checks not ordered from them directly. I got the $2 sting today in my checking account. I am going to go to the bank tomorrow and complain. If they can’t stop this policy, I’m switching banks. I am not ordering new checks, specially since we […]

DUDE, I’m getting a Dell

Laptop Research

Just for kicks I decided to shop online for a new laptop. Though my current laptop is working perfectly fine, I have had it for over 3 years. Now is most likely the best time for me to buy a new laptop and sell my old one. First, I decided on some features to narrow […]

Acura RSX discontinued

If you really want an Acura RSX hurry to the Acura dealer and pick one up. From what I have been reading, you can pick one up relatively cheap too, since true car enthusiests like myself have decided the standard features in the new Si are worth not buying the RSX Type-S. Had they only […]
