Physical Media Is A Thing Of The Past


As netbooks, tablets, and smaller computer like devices are introduced to the market, they all tend to have one thing in common: the lack of reliance on physical software media. In ages past (a decade or two), one had to have a floppy drive to install anything new on their computer. These diskettes were (in their final form) 3.5 inch squares, and the most common form of them contained 1.44 MB of storage space. At one point, this was thought to be ample room.


AMD has recently released its new line of “Piledriver” CPU's, and they perform pretty darn well. No longer in its infancy stage, AMD's multi-threaded core approach has improved significantly from the “Bulldozer” line of chips. The FX-8350 is the best of these CPU's currently on the market, and retails for approximately $220.

Sprint releases the Samsung Note 2

Samsung Note 2

If you have been waiting for the Samsung Note 2, wait no more! Sprint and T-Mobile are now both offering the 16GB version of the Titanium Gray or White Note 2. Both of these providers technically have unlimited data, and they are both the only way to get the Note 2 at this time.

MS Sphere

If current trends continue, by 2016, Microsoft will no longer be the dominant operating system in the world. That title will go to Android, as more and more mobile devices are sold, and the PC market stagnates further. Or, so says a research firm known as Gartner.


Who has the most apps? The best apps? Does Apple or Android make more money from their apps? Who has more developers? Which platform offers more free apps? Hardware aside, these are all all important issues to consider when purchasing a new phone. After all, phones are now a versatile mobile computing platform that can hardly be referred to as just a “phone” any longer.

LG Pranks Elevator Users

 LG Elevator

The electronics company LG has come up with a rather novel way to showcase their new IPS line of televisions. IPS is a variation of LCD display screen that boasts clear colors, high refresh rates, and no 'tailing' when someone touches the screen. This makes them especially useful for touchscreen devices, and for LG's prank.

AT&T's Growth Down by 50% this Quarter

ATT Fail

The company AT&T's growth in the realm of new cell phone service subscribers is 57% lower than expected for this quarter. Who's to blame? Well, other than AT&T of course, Verizon and the iPhone, apparently. AT&T relies heavily on the iPhone for its user base, and the new iPhone 5 has been in such high demand, but has also a low supply.

Lost and Found; Thanks to Microchips!


Losing a pet can be one of the more difficult things a person can endure. Many people care very deeply for their dogs, cats, or other non-human friends. But what happens when your pet gets lost? Without a collar or an externally identifying tag, it can be difficult at best for a complete stranger to locate the proper owner of the animal. Microchips solve this problem.

The 500 Lb Search Engine Gorilla

Question Mark

Everyone knows that Google is the largest search engine around. Its role as such is so prolific that people no longer 'search' for information on line, they 'google' it. It has become a verb; a regular household name. But just how BIG is Google?

Android: Texts from the Future!??


Android users have a lot to be happy about. Despite all the awesome that is Android, there are the occasional bumps in the road. One of the more hilarious of these problems is the tendency for Android phones to display incorrect timestamps on text messages under certain conditions. Sometimes, it can appear as if your friend has texted you from several hours in the future. Sometimes in the past.
