Why You Should Never Center Align Paragraph Text: 
http://uxmovement.com/content/why-you-should-never-center-align-paragraph-text/
Text is a beautiful thing. It not only has function, but form as well. When you're creating text, it's likely that you're not only thinking about what your text

Don't start up your tablet on the runway just yet...
New federal guidelines on in-flight use of electronic devices will be adopted slowly and piecemeal, at first.

Imagine IF cellphones & Wifi devices really could crash planes -- wouldn't the TSA (airport security) stop people from taking them at all?

This is such a flawed pseudo-fact, but it's really just more baseless paranoia.

Time Warner Cable lost 306,000 video subscribers, mostly in CBS fight.
Time Warner Cable reported the subscriber loss along with its earnings for the third quarter, when the 30-day CBS outage occurred.

Being a programmer is a profession. It is a high-skill job that demands a large initial investment of time as well dedication to continuing education to stay at the top of your game - much like a doctor. Yet, programmers often lose sight of the fact that the skills we bring to the table are only part of the equation; like a medical professional, our "bedside manner" is incredibly important to our overall professional success. Why is that?

Interesting news from Sony Pictures. 
Sony Pictures Entertainment , reeling from several box office disappointments and under assault from an activist shareholder, said at a Thursday morning meeting for investors that it would undergo a "significant shift" away from movies and toward the "higher margin" ;television business.

Heard about it.  Just heard on news California is going to offer 4x current tax incentives to keep films in Cali.  
Very confused how 'free market Capitalism' with 'free global labor market' equals 'come do your work here and don't pay into our society'?!?!
I say, pay a living wage and stay here, or move all the labor away -- and pay a big tax / surcharge to get your product back into Cali?

<sigh> It's still not a F&*$ing iPhone.
So here it is, the post about why I am switching from an Android to an iPhone, with just weeks before the new iPhone 5S release. First let me clarify something: I am a fan of Apple products, but I love Google more. I have used Android phones from HTC, Motorola and Samsung - and it is after buying the latest Samsung S4 that I am finally throwing in the towel. Here's why...

Still surprised that I prefer my Android to my iPhone.  iPhone def did some stuff my phone doesn't do as well ...
BUT
Android can def do a lot of things better than iOS, like...
Browse files, associate apps I want to specific functions, various keyboards, various add-ins & tweaks, all kinds of networking things (ie FTP & filesharing), and more.
AND
Guess what?  I don't have to buy anything from Google Play store to add apps or music or movies!  (But I can...)
Try doing that on an iPhone (w/o jailbreaking, that is)!

Do you agree that brand equity is earned rather than based on a clever name?
People often ask me where the name for my company came from. That's something I'll answer a little later on, but reflecting on this left me thinking about what is in a brand and why do we care about t...

Great low pressure sales team. I've purchased them twice from two different people on two different occasions and they were both very patient and well informed.
