July 12, 2011


Mashable just reported that Google+ will be reaching 10 million users shortly and in the past 32 to 34 hours there have been 2.2 million people who have joined.

What are your Eyeballs Worth?

July 9, 2011


I have a Kindle and I’m a huge fan of it. I’ve tried reading from a Nook and from an iPad and I much prefer the e-Ink technology utilized by the Kindle. It’s much easier on the eyes and there’s no glare. Now I see that they are selling a Kindle with “Special Offers.” This […]

The Twitterverse is Infinite.

July 6, 2011
