Cybercheating is a Big Deal

Filed under: News — admin @ 9:39 am

A majority of students cybercheat, taking information from the Internet and using it without citing the source or claiming it as their own. This is big. What’s worse, in my opinion, is that their attitude is that it’s okay because “everyone else does it.” That speaks to their character more than their academic skills.

Your Keyboard Is Stuck In The Past

Filed under: Main — admin @ 12:01 am

I look at my state-of-the-art cell phone and I’ve got to shake my head: The teensy keyboard that appears on the screen is essentially the same keyboard invented in 1874. Is this modern technology or not?

Throw-Away Email Accounts

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:36 am

Here’s a clever idea from Microsoft: Throw-away email accounts. They know that you often create a temporary email account to sign up for a service or to blog, with no intention of seriously using the account. Apparently now you can add up to five alias accounts to your single Hotmail/Live mail account. Super cinchy. Really smart.

Microsoft Cheated with Bing

I can picture the meeting now: Microsoft executives were pounding on the table, trying to compete with Google’s primary business, web search.

Better searching techniques didn’t matter, what was important was knocking Google off its perch.

So Microsoft cheated.

AOL’s Profits Come From Ill-Informed Geezers

Filed under: News — admin @ 9:36 am

According to the article below, AOL is profiting because a lot of old people who use computers are unaware that they don’t need AOL. Those users already have an email account at their ISP, but they still pay $25/month for AOL service just to use the email address. That’s a silly waste of money, but I can see how it happens: Too many people are misinformed and ignorant when it comes to computers. They just don’t know any better. That’s sad.
