5 Free Alternatives to Apple IOS 6 Maps

Apple’s newest iteration of its mobile operating system, IOS 6, just released and you’ve rushed to download it. The new performance upgrades, Facebook integration, and the brand spanking new Apple Maps application all entice you to upgrade. Remember what the wise man said about fools rushing in? The general consensus around the interwebs is that the IOS 6 Maps applications is sorely lacking in comparison to the previous Google Maps powered app. It’s pretty but user experience and functionality have both been downgraded.

Flipboard for iPhone: From Nay to Yay

So the big news in iPhone apps was that Flipboard was now available. While everyone was salivating to get their hands on Flipboard to the point of crashing the download server I was like “huh?” I had no idea what Flipboard was.

Gaga Goes Au Natural

Lady Gaga covers the upcoming Harper’s Bazaar Magazine without makeup. That in itself isn’t really post worthy. Many celebrities have done something similar.

Honey Treats Coughs Better Than Drugs

A new study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine shows what your grandparents or great grandparents already knew, that honey helps to soothe coughs and does it better than drugs. The use of honey as medicine goes further back than the ancient Egyptians who used honey for all sorts of purposes. Aside from its nutritive and cough benefits it tastes much better too.
