What futures can you trade
Virtual reality, or VR as the cool kids call it, is no longer a far-off future technology. It is, in fact, out in the world as we know it today and you may already own an Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or PS VR headset. Along with them, though, came a cavalcade of games. Which are the best VR games for PC and PS4? We’ve put together our top picks right here. PC gamers who have a burning desire to experience VR first have to decide between the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. Each headset has its pros and its cons and this decision will largely come down to budget and personal preference. In the simplest of terms, the Oculus Rift (now that the Oculus Touch controllers are out as well) is the cheaper of the two options and offers some key Oculus-exclusive titles. Vive, on the other hand, was the first to offer motion controllers and, as such, has a wider range of games available that take full advantage of a full-range of motion. The Vive also offers room-scale movement, to keep you fully … [Read more...] about The best VR games for PC and PS4 you should play today

He was born in July and I previously blogged about flying with him in September to Miami as a “dry-run” if you will, for a long-haul trip. The first couple months of Rafi’s life weren’t easy, he was very colicky and pretty much cried 24/7. A funny thing happened on that Miami trip though. He was quiet for the most part on the planes and he slept through the night for the … [Read more...] about Traveling To Hawaii…With A 5 Month Old!
Never Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on FacebookUnited dropped the heartbreaking news on Friday afternoon that they will move MileagePlus from an award chart based redemption system to dynamically priced awards. Like a paid ticket, the price for the award will be whatever United says it is when you search for it. For now, partner award prices haven’t changed, but when Delta switched to this system 4 years ago they started devaluing those awards without any notice. Instead of being able to save up for an aspirational award with a fixed price, you’ll just have to hope you can find a sale. Some bloggers reported that the “bright side” of the news was that United will get rid of the $75 close-in fee for booking an award within 21 days. Sadly that is a fallacy.
