Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

DOS For Dummies changed the computer book publishing industry over 20 years ago. You can read the history on this website here, but what’s not told on that page is how the other computer book publishers reacted at the time. It got ugly.

Seattle Bar Bans Google Glasses

Filed under: News — admin @ 10:17 pm

It had to happen. The $1,500 specs that keep your eyeball constantly connected to the Internet are instantly unpopular in a certain Seattle area bar. If only they would have thought of this when cell phones first came out.
