The new iPhone 4S is coming and with it comes another generation of phones that will be relegated to sitting in a drawer or cabinet somewhere. How many? Well in the first weekend of actual sales, Apple sold one million iPhone 4S smartphones. That is a lot of smartphones. And it creates a lot of dumb phones that serve out their lives as expensive paperweights. So we've put together a list of three ways to put that old smart phone to clever use.
Bank Transfer Day is gaining some serious steam. Although it's not technically affiliated with Occupy, it's being embraced by the movement and is the first specific call to action since the Occupy protests began four weeks ago.
The description and goal of Bank Transfer Day is straightforward: If you currently have checking and savings accounts (deposit accounts) with a big bank, the organizers encourage you to remove all of your funds, close your accounts, and place your money in a new deposit account with a not-for-profit credit union. The organizers ask that you do this by November 5. And since November 5 is a Saturday, you should definitely do it before November 5 since many big banks aren't open on weekends.
Another day of the occupation and once again people gather to bear witness to the broken system. At the FearLess Cottage, we stand with you. Both those of us here in the 99% and those of us in the 1%.
We were excited to recieve an image from a friend showing a New York protestor in a FearLessLoveMore t-shirt. Our care package obviously arrived and we're excited about that connection.
