• E-reader? Or the Old fashioned book?
    A couple years ago, I was interested in buying a Kindle so that I wouldn't have to buy anymore textbooks. Then I was a little unclear about whether my textbooks were accessible through the Kindle and that would have defeated the purpose of purchasing one. I would only purchase an e-reader to keep from having [...]
  • Video Game Satisfaction..Guaranteed!
    Watch this TED Talk Video! Many of us have probably played video games at least once in our lives. Do remember how you felt when you played it again? Did you ever play that game again? You should ask yourself, why or why not? This Ted Talk was about video games and how they appeal to [...]

  • I've got my head in the clouds
    I'm sure you've all seen the new Windows commercials, with the tagline "To the cloud, with Windows Live." Now, these are mildly amusing commercials I guess, but just from the commercial, it's hard to know what exactly "the cloud" or Windows Live is. Unfortunately, that is not what this post is about.
