Here’s the news that caught my eye today while I was wondering whether I’d be half as nice as these people if I won the lottery.
- Something you went see when Mike goes bargain hunting on eBay: an unopened first-generation iPhone. At $10,000, that’s slightly more than our $5 budget.
- Apparently iPhones are on the mind today, as Tech Crunch lists the 5 best cases for college-bound students. And while there may not be an app that can open a beer for you, you can bet that there’s an iPhone case that will.
- Yesterday we talked about some fun jobs people had at the Olympics. Less fun? The fact that job creation efforts by the Olympics fell short in London.
- eBooks can cost up to 70% less than their paper versions, so you’d think it’d be a slam dunk that college students would be clamoring for this cheaper option. However, as NBC News reports, “74 percent of students still want print.”
- PennLive.com details how to manage a chronic disease as a college student, including researching the campus medical center and dining hall.
- Feeling entrepreneurial? Then check out Upstart.com. This new online venture (from a former Google executive, no less!) matches college grads who are looking to start businesses with investors and mentors.
