Turbotax Mobile App Smartphone

Turbotax Mobile App Smartphone - TurboTax has made filing your taxes on a smartphone possible. TurboTax released a mobile app for filing taxes on smartphones, making the app available for free download. For consumers looking
to file a 1040EZ to prepare their federal and state income taxes, now they can do it straight from their phone. It almost sounds too good to be true, and it is a leap in technology use that simply boggles the mind.

The new TurboTax app is called SnapTax, and we downloaded it to an Apple iPhone to have a look at what it could do. The SnapTax app is available in the Apple Store, and is very simple to install at no cost. The trick, though, is that if you end up wanting to submit your taxes through this phone version, it will cost $14.99. That's not too bad when it comes down to it, especially if it means users won't have to worry about sending in forms anymore.

Maybe one of the biggest advantages to using the TurboTax SnapTax is that you don't have to do most of the work. The application works by simply taking a photograph of your W-2 and then answering a few simple questions about yourself. The application then populates all of the boxes on your tax form, and prepares it for your review. You can then check it over to make sure everything looks correct, and if you don't like the process, you don't have to pay the fee for filing.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
