Shouldn’t somebody have caught this issue before the sale? There is a whole mess here and all we want is what we paid for at the beginning. I look forward to your reply.

CC&R’s unfortunately rarely include a parking list specifying which … [Read more...] about HOA Homefront: Is it my parking space or not?

Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, speaks during an Apple product launch event on March 25, 2019 in Cupertino, California. Michael Short/Getty Images The Apple Card doesn’t really seem like a credit card. After all, Apple is not a bank. And although many Americans have a tendency to trust Apple—just look at how many of us have iPhones—a credit card is still a credit card.Despite all of the classically stylish announcements and events to promote the Apple Card, this product is not the same as AirPods or the latest Macbook.
