Checkpoint: iPhone X Edition

posted in: Editorials & Features | 0

$1319 before taxes. That’s how much the new iPhone X costs. I’m not upset at Apple for “daring” to charge that much but it’s far too much for something that I can so easily lose or damage.

They found it odd that I’ve ordered clothes, furniture, non-perishable groceries, candy, and other “common” items off online retailers. Well now I’ve stepped up my game and ordered a king sized Leesa mattress. My girlfriend and I have been using it for the past couple of weeks and we’re both happy with it. It’s not too soft … Read More
