1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So, I live in North Alabama, and on Wednesday we had several powerful Torndoes rip up our communities. We lost power and all cell phone service shortly before a Tornado completely destoryed my place of work. Before all that happened I remembered that my Droid X had a built in FM radio. I plugged in my headphones and gave vital information to my fellow coworkers so we could survive. Every single one of us lived, and I believe as a direct fact to my droid x's fm radio. I will never believe in the future that the fm radio is a feature that is a novelty. Please continue to keep all of us in your prayers. I personally have lost a close friend in this awful event.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. In those types of situations, every bit of information is, obviously, vital. I wish your community a speedy recovery. Again, my condolences go out for your friend and the family.

    Thanks so much! We are lucky to have a home to go to, so many do not. We are dealing with no power and water and could be for 2 more weeks to come, but that is such a small issue when people are missing entire houses. Again, thanks for the condolences and thoughts.
