  1. I agree with the Retire Happy advice to avoid DSC mutual funds, but it seems that just about all people I try to help out with their investments have been placed in DSC funds by their “advisors”. Thanks for the mention, FT.

  2. Thanks for the mention FT! Have a great weekend!

    @FT: I don’t understand the reference to the unlocked iPhone. I admit I didn’t follow every link, but none of them sounded very iPhone-ish to me. Can you please clarify?

    Cheers.

    FT, is there a link to an article on unlocked iphones? I cant seem to find it

    Thank you – seems I won a copy of Turbo Tax – just in time to shadow what my accountant comes up with and then next year I’ll be confident that I can get the same results and save a bundle by doing it myself.

    How do I collect my copy of Turbo Tax?

    @Returns Reaper & Dan – I’m guessing it was this one – http://www.squawkfox.com/2013/03/02/unlocked/

    Thanks for the mention, FT!

    Thanks.
