Since geo-locaton apps - also known as location-based social networks - became part of our cultural zeitgeist, there are many who have chosen not to join their rank and file.

Run Your Own Auto Shop In Fix-It-Up Eighties: Meet Kate's Parents

When I first saw the video game title, I thought that the game was a dating simulation or something of that sort since the game was called Fix-It-Up Eighties: Meet Kate's Parents. I couldn't have been more wrong, albeit pleasantly, once I began playing. The game's concept couldn't have been farther from dating; it was all about cars and running an auto shop!

There are a lot of things that you can do on the iPhone but one of the things that I find hard to do is take good photos.
