UPS Replacement, EDC Every Day Carry, Apple Credit Card and Budget Apps – HGG397

Share

Jim and Mike are back this week with the question, “When your UPS dies, do you replace the battery, buy a new UPS or upgrade the UPS to something bigger?”  Mike talks about is latest YouTube Rabbit Hole and hobby with EDC (Every Day Carry) leather pocket protectors.  There is a new Credit Card coming from Apple and it gets both Jim and Mike talking about budgets and budging apps. We finish with Mike selling some hardware on eBay (again).  I think you will enjoy the show.
