Facebook Gives Their Users 5 More Like Options, But No ‘DISLIKE’

It seems like it’s only taken forever for Facebook to get around to adding additional responses to people’s posts. I think one of the most awkward things you can do on Facebook is when someone announces a death in the family or when someone is seriously ill that you had to LIKE the post or …

At the same time I was doing the review for Dragon Anywhere, I recalled seeing an announcement/article where you can now do continuous speech recognition into Google Docs.

Modular/Stackable Smartphones and PCs is the right choice

I saw this post today on Mashable reported that Acer was going to be building a component-based PC. I think the concept of having a component-based PC is a great idea.

Ever since the introduction of mobile devices with WebCams, or cameras in general, people have been recording video, but one of the most confusing things that I see is when people record video vertically.

Techie Review: DVDFab 9 – DVD Copy

In a time where streaming media seems to be the common way to get entertainment and where technology experts keep saying that Blu-ray and DVD technologies are dead, I would argue that’s wrong.
