I am Danielle. I have always been a huge computer user as far as I can remember. I was able to fix a computer from a very young age, and have been using computers my entire life, even back before the internet because popular. I am currently in college with another year left, but in my free time I am a tech junkie.

  • I think I may finally replace my 7 year old iPod finally.

    • I was thinking it was time to invest in something other than an iPod Classic!
