Tech Talk: Arnold's Total Recall A Reality? Print & Go With Pogo!

What’s up AllHipHop fam! New technology makes

life for some of us a little bit easier, and for some, a little

I found a couple of gadgets to argue both points... Hopefully you fall on the easy side of the fence.

Til next time, I’m tech shopping.
