If you are in the market to buy a car, you may be comparing prices of vehicles at different dealerships. What you may find is that the prices of cars and the incentives offered vary from state to state. This may leave you wondering if you should buy your car in a different state or whether you should simply stick to buying a car in the state in which you reside. Just as informative as the weirdest traffic laws from each state, you will want to know the info below before you buy a car in a different state.

Smog and Safety Standards

When you are buying a car in another state, you need to ensure the car meets the smog and emissions requirements and the safety standards that are required in your state. This is rarely an issue with new cars. After all, manufacturers will not manufacture a car to meet emissions standards in one state and then change the car to meet emissions standards in another state. However, this can come into play when you are buying a used vehicle from a dealer. The used car may meet the smog and emissions and/or safety standards in the state it is being sold, but not in the state you live and plan on registering it. It is the dealer's responsibility to ensure the vehicle meets the requirements for the state in which the car is being sold. It is your responsibility to know what the requirements are for the state where you plan on registering the vehicle and ensure it meets those standards. If the car doesn't meet the standards in the state you live and plan on registering it, you may have to spend money to make changes and fixes to the car to meet requirements in your state.

Can you believe it’s been a year since you had your baby? You want to celebrate, of course, but planning a birthday party for a one-year- old is a little different than planning a party for a five-year-old. Your baby won’t care about the decorations or the size of the cake – but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw a great party to commemorate the occasion!

Use these tips to make the party enjoyable for both you and your little one.

1. Personalize it with custom invitations.

Though Facebook events and evites are useful for tracking RSVP numbers, there’s something special about sending paper invitations to guests. You can merge the online and physical world by creating invitations online and sending them out.

“I recommend sending an online invitation. Not only does that make your job a lot easier — a few clicks and you’re done — but guests will also be able to RSVP online, which means that there’s even less work for you,” says Rachel Sales of the online print shop Smilebox.

“To ensure that friends designate part of their weekend to your baby’s party, create an invitation that features your baby’s irresistible smile.”

Net Neutrality is a big deal when it comes to internet access and if you do not know why then you have come to the right place. With all the unpredictable political changes that have taken place since the New Year, the issue of Internet access is an important topic in game news today.

What is Net Neutrality?

The main principle of net neutrality is that ISP’s (Internet service providers) cannot discriminate against content and application access. They must allow consumers equal access to all content and applications that are available on the Internet instead of favoring specific websites and/or products. In February of 2015, then Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Tom Wheeler passed the “open Internet” order, which classifies Internet providers as “common carriers.” In other words, the order helped to classify broadband Internet as a utility service similar to the telephone or electricity.
