Make Free Calls To Regular Phones With Android Phones
Perhaps you've upgraded phones over the years and have an old android phone laying in a drawer or storage box.
With all the open Wi-Fi hotspots that you can find now (places like McDonalds, Starbucks and Taco Bell probably even have it), You can repurpose that old Android phone to be useful again. Provided that it's at least Android 3, many popular calling apps work, but most have a limitation that they can only call other people who use the app for free. If you want to call landlines and other cellular phones, then you'll end up paying money to make the call. As of this article, Google Voice via Hangouts and Hangouts Dialer is the only service that allows you to make calls throughout the USA for free to any phone.Read more ...

How To Get The Right Binoculars
I don't usually carry binoculars everyday, but they are definitely one of the things that I keep in my car. I usually grab them when the family and I go out for walks in the woods and when I go hiking around, but other than that, the only other times that I pull them out is when there might be a lunar eclipse, at an airshow or some other event that I really want a better view.
