AT&T smashes cheapest text plan

We are weeks away from Apple’s new iPhone 5 release and with it, a new way of messaging between iDevices that will not use any text services. So it’s a touch curious that A&T picked Sunday as the day to get rid of its cheapest text plan, the $10-a-month version, which allowed for 1,000 monthly

College football asks “What Recession”?

Audi’s Sleek, Sexy A7 Exudes Smoothness

Every car company is getting into the coupe-looking sedan segment Mercedes Benz started a few years ago. Its CLS range has inspired even Hyundai to pen sedans with low-slung roof lines and muscular bodies. The original CLS didn’t have much room, but comely it was, and still is.
