App makers are continuing to make tons of money with the same old, same old types of games. There’s been a few changes at the top of the charts this month – with PANDORA making a hefty rise to the top (albeit probably temporary).
‘Cause we knew you’d want to know – all apps are making about $18million per day, across all apps and all devices.
Parenting can be tough, and parenting with the Internet can be even tougher.
It’s not because the Internet can’t help you be a better parent, but it’s the sheer volume of information – many of it conflicting, and much of it at the touch of your fingertips – that makes it difficult.

Quick show of hands: how many of you have an unlisted phone number?
Especially in today’s world of cellphones, the notion of a “phone book” that is printed on paper and delivered to your house is almost laughable. People purposefully have their phone numbers listed in a phone book as part of being neighborly and accessible, but with the Do Not Call list and robocalls and other phone annoyances, more and more people are choosing to go off the grid (for personal or professional reasons).
With a cell phone, your number is pretty much already unlisted. Nobody should be using your cell number unless you provided it to them.

Show of hands – how many of you own a smartphone (Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Android primarily)?
That’s right – we know that while the vast majority of you did raise your hand proudly waving your mini-computer around, there are still a fairly substanial number of you who still proudly sport a flip phone or other non-smartphone around in your pocket.
And that’s okay. For you, you can skip over this post knowing that you’ve made the right decision.
It’s because we’re about to tell you how smartphone users are really no different from flipphone users, when it comes right down to it.
