Windows 9 Expectations

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:47 am

InfoWorld takes a sneak peak at Windows 9. In about two weeks, the “beta” is officially unveiled. Then we’ll all know what Microsoft has in store for the next Windows release.

The High Tech industry has always prided itself in coming up with new, exciting stuff time and time again. From the killer program to the killer app, both software and hardware innovations have inspired and motivated generations of geeks and gurus.

Until now.

If the annual TechCrunch blog competition is any gauge, then Silicon Valley is truly out of new ideas.

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:47 am

Golly! Just the other day I joked about waiting for the second release of the Apple Watch and — already — people are talking about it.

I tell you what: If you really want a workout, get on the Apple Treadmill. You’ll never stop running to catch up!

What the Facebook App Can Do

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

facebook So many people use Facebook that I feel compelled to write about it. So I do! All my mobile technology books discuss using the Facebook app. Upon further scrutiny, it appears that installing that app may not be in your best interest.

Coming Friday: CME

Filed under: News — admin @ 8:32 am

Thank you, Mr. Sun!

A large solar flare is headed our way, making a potential impact on Friday (tomorrow). This CME, or Coronal Mass Ejection, could disrupt electronic communications around the globe.

While you can’t prevent such a natural occurrence, you can be on the alert. My advice: Backup!
