iPad Mini

Do you think there will be an iPad mini?

My iPhone 5 has finally arrived

Taisha L. Walker

On Monday I joined the 21st century.  I said goodbye to my Blackberry –yes, people still have those — and upgraded to an iPhone 5.  The nearly weeks  waited after pre-ordering the phone seemed like forever but I’m glad to say it was worth the wait.
