Jeff's unwavering pessimism and general distaste for life might finally take a turn in his favor, according to research that claims grumpiness is good for you. If that's true, then Jeff will definitely outlive all the cockroaches in New York and New Jersey, combined.

Yesterday AT&T announced a series of new data plans for its smartphone and tablet devices that could generate savings for the average user. The biggest difference is that the unlimited data plan is gone with two new plans in its place: 200MB for $15 per month or 2GB for $25.
According to AT&T, 98 percent of its users only go through less than 2GB per month which means plenty of people will save at least $5 a month. Don't worry, current iPhone users: legacy iPhone plans will remain untouched, although they won't get tethering. You can check your current monthly data usage on the AT&T Wireless Web site.
