Where’s my .TAX file???

When I was 16 years old (in the good ol’ mid-80’s), I filed my first tax return. What did I know about taxes? Nothing. So I listened to my Mother (this is normally when things go wrong for me) and paid her accountant (I think it was $50) to do my taxes. I signed, dated, …

Okay, so I don’t own an iPhone, but I know a lot of people who do. I saw this report on Global News and had to share the information. It’s about how Apple is now having your phone record every single movement you make. Like a Private Investigator. The new iOS7 upgrade included a change …
