super-deluxe 6 blade deal with the trimmer, but the regular 6 blade is a good razor. Occasionally I notice that you need to apply a little more pressure than I was accustomed to with my Mach3, just to ensure a good shave. The blades are lasting me at least 7 or 8 shaves before they get a bit more dull than I like, but you might be able to stretch them a bit more. Pro Tip: Keep a little rubbing alcohol around to clean the razor and the blades will last longer. Now I'm using the regular 4 blade and I think it's going to be the one I generally use. Good combination of cheapness and function, but we'll see how long the blades last. Original Thoughts Below: Last month, I ran out of blades for my Mach 3 razor. My folks generally give razor blades as stocking stuffers and I can't remember the last time I had to pick up blades on my own. Jesus, these things are expensive. Even with the Amazon Subscribe and Save discount, the Mach 3 replacement blades are $2.06 each and if you want the Turbos, you're at $2.75. A few months back, I heard about DorcoUSA, the company that supplies the Dollar Shave Club's razors. Dollar Shave Club hit it big with their viral video, and they're a huge savings over the cost of Mach 3 blades, but if you're going to be cheap, be really cheap and buy the blades directly from the supplier. So, I've been using the blades for a few weeks and they're really as good as anything else I've tried. My only caveat is that I'm using the 6 blades right now and that's a really large razor head. Honestly, I think 6 blades is overkill. But I picked up a sample pack with 6, 4, and 3 blade heads, so I thought I'd give the high end razors the first shot. In terms of closeness of shave and the feel of the razor, I'm very impressed.Update: 8 June. I've been using the razors for about a month and a half, maybe two, and I think I'm really in love with these things. I didn't love the

Heliumfrom ClockworkMod is the perfect solution. Basically it backs up your apps and data, but it does more, in that it basically images your phone, so it restores your apps, your widgets, your screen organization, and even the logins for your apps. Nothing is more frustrating than having to log into each app on your phone again; thankfully Carbon sorts this out. Best of all, it's free. If you're like me, the app saved me so much frustration and time that I paid for the premium version, even if I never use it again. I figure it saved me at least 2 hours of manually installing and logging into my apps, so easily worth the price. I can't recommend this app enough, it just works out of the box, and will save you hours, especially if you like rooting and swapping ROMs frequently.About two weeks ago, my mostly new Spring Galaxy S3 took a big dump on itself and stopped making phone calls. That's not true, it would make the call, but then drop it within 15 seconds. Tried everything I could to sort it out, but no luck. Thankfully, Best Buy was great with sorting out the issues, they gave me a loaner and I had a replacement phone in my hands in two days. But, if you've ever had to wipe your phone, or picked up a new phone, you already know what a pain in the ass it is to reinstall all your programs and then reconfigure them. Well,
