New camera

I've been thinking about getting a mirrorless camera for some time now. I have a DSLR, but it's old and there are scratches on the lens- basically worthless. I've been meaning to take some online photography classes and improve my photography skills, but as of right now, I don't have a proper camera. Since this is something I've been really looking into, should I just bite the bullet and buy a new (expensive) camera?

What's the best idea for a Youtube Channel?

Been thinking about starting a youtube channel in my free time (of which I realize I don't have much...) but still I think it would be fun and I think I have a couple ideas that could turn into something that I think at least a decent number of people would want to watch. I have no delusions in thinking that I'm gonna become the next Philip DeFranco or Rizknows but I think it would be a cool thing to try out at least and see if I like it. Recently I watched a Jeremy Jahns video where he encouraged people to just get on Youtube and try things out, don't wait until your idea is perfect because then you'll never get started, you just have to get in there and start something. Perfect it later. It's kinda like writing a book, first, you just need to get the words down on paper, then you can worry about fine-tuning the details.

So, what kind of Youtube channel do you think I should start? The options below are my basic ideas, forgive me for not being more specific, but obviously, I don't want to give my ideas completely away.

GoDaddy Status Alert: What is going on?

I have not had email access for over six hours. I called GoDaddy and asked the rep specifically if they had been hacked and he said no. CBS now reports that they were indeed hit by hackers. What do you think?

Has technology spoiled literary classics?

Like many avid readers, I have a stockpile of books I want to read. Among these are classic literature. I am referring to Crime and Punishment, Moby Dick, The Sun Also RIses, etc. These are classics for a reason, but we live in an age where I can literally use a search engine to learn plots, characters and the intended metaphors in a fraction of the time. Should I spend this time getting to know these stories on the author's level, or should I watch the movies, read the writing on them and move on to more recent works of art?

Apple TV vs. Playstation/Nintendo

Thinking about replacing my kids' old video game system with Apple TV - it seems like it would do just about everything we need - streaming, Minecraft, and other video games.

Is it as good as a Playstation or Nintendo for games?

What's the best wireless carrier?

We've been using AT&T for the past few years. The mobile plan we have is something we've been grandfathered into, but it's starting to cost a lot. Plus, we don't have unlimited data, which is something most plans have nowadays.

We are currently paying over $200 dollars for 15GB of data for three lines (two mobile phones and one tablet). About $50 of that is for the devices themselves, since everything is paid in installments these days.

Is there a better option? We specifically need lines and data for 2 phones and 1 tablet. If none of the big four are a good option, leave a comment telling me what is.

What type of phone should I get?

My iPhone 6 is dying, and I can upgrade to a new phone. I'm not sure what to get.

The last two phones I've used were both iOS phones, but before then I was happy using Android HTC phones. The initial reason for switching to an Apple phone was because I bought a Macbook, and it was easier to sync. Now, my Macbook is officially dead, and I'm only using a Windows 10 PC at home. I have no plans to get a laptop yet, so syncing wouldn't be a reason for me to keep using Apple.

What should I get?

which is better android or ios

Yes, 2016 brings a plethora of new devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the LG G5 and other phones that deliver a bigger challenge for Apple — but there are still places where the iPhone is clearly better than Android and iOS 9 is better than Android Marshmallow.
