Instagram rolled-out a pretty sweet update today - one that eliminated the need for resizing apps. It's now possible to go proper widescreen with both photos and videos, allowing users to share their content however it's intended to be. You can do portrait or landscape orientation, but I completely blame Periscope and Snapchat for making users think that it's actually okay to suffer from VPS: Vertical Phone Syndrome. Widescreen or square for me, and to demonstrate the new cinematic look to Instagram, the very first video to display the format is a pretty appropriate one - a new clip from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS!
March is here, and with the first day of Spring less than two weeks away, we're FINALLY starting to see some signs of it here in the frosty region north of Chicago. With a new season comes some new flavors, and my friends at The J.M. Smucker Company are rolling out a trio of their Dunkin Donuts Packaged Coffee (available in grocery stores), with Peach Cobbler, Coconut and Toasted Almond, all available for a limited time. Coffee is good, but you know what else is? Prizes - and you could win some, just for showing us your Hipster Side.
February. The month of love. Valentine's Day... boxed chocolates... fanciful bouquets... and for some, coffee. It's widely known that I love my coffee, and for the past five months, I've been checking-in along with my friends at the J.M. Smucker Company, makers of Dunkin' Donuts Packaged Coffee (available where you buy groceries) with a reminder that YOU can win some rockin' prizes as part of their #DunkinMugUp contest. This month, it's all about love.

If you've been following my adventures as The Rock Father for a bit, there's a solid chance that you already know how much I love my coffee. You also might've caught the news that to kick 2014 off right, I'm taking part in a Fitness Challenge with my friend, Tom. Well, today my love of coffee and my quest for fitness come together as my friends at the J.M. Smucker Company, makers of Dunkin' Donuts Packaged Coffee (available where you buy groceries) continue their ongoing #DunkinMugUp contest to give YOU a chance to win some rockin' prizes!
Christmastime is here, and for a coffee fiend like me, that means breaking out the Seasonal Flavors - like those offered by my friends at the J.M. Smucker Company, makers of Dunkin' Donuts packaged coffee (available where you buy groceries). Today I'm sipping their new Apple Pie coffee... as I stand in front of my Christmas tree while wearing a Santa Hat, a Griswold Family Tree "Bad Christmas Sweater" (it's a t-shirt), and using a Peanuts mug as my hot beverage holder of choice. So now that you've seen my Holiday Cheer, we want to see YOURS!
By now, I think it's safe to say that November is the Official Month of the Mustache (or Moustache). As many of you already know, I'm doing my part to combat men's health issues by taking part in Movember this year - my first-ever run at being a "Mo Bro." While I continue my quest to grow some amusing facial hair (as my wife calls it) for a great cause, you can celebrate The Month of the Mustache as well, by showing the world your Mug'stache. What's a "Mug'stache," you ask? Well, it's the latest chance for you to win some sweet prizes from Dunkin' Donuts by sharing a photo of yourself and tagging it with #DunkinMugUp on Instagram and your other social networks. My friends at the J.M. Smucker Company, makers of Dunkin' Donuts packaged coffee (available where you by groceries) will give you a shot at scoring a year's supply of delicious coffee, a $250 VISA Gift Card, or a Dunkin' Donuts mug. I'll show you mine if you show me your... Mug'Stache:
