Obama is mad that his nominee for Consumer Financial Protection boss was blocked. But I have to ask, why do we even need such a position?
Why isn’t is possible that the consumers learn to protect themselves?
With all the buzz, Apple’s iPhone 4S tops a lot of lists this holiday season, but is it worth it? Consumer Reports testers say it is a great phone. It’s faster than the iPhone 4, and the improved camera takes better photos.
Another perk is the voice-activated personal assistant, Siri, which works well and even has a sense of humor. Ask it for the meaning of life, and here’s the response you get: “I can’t answer that now, but give me some time to write a very long play in which nothing happens.”
Even with all that, Consumer Reports says plenty of other smartphones perform just as well, or even better, than the iPhone 4S.
“Several phones we tested weigh less than the 4S and have larger screens,” Consumer Reports’ Mike Gikas said.
If we can build private organizations that help us with phones, why can’t we build organizations that help us with credit cards, or homes or cars?
