FYI
Microsoft has invested years and countless man-hours in an effort to get their cloud storage service on par with competitors like Dropbox and Google Drive, who have long resided at the top of this market.

But there's one key feature that m...

Some good beginner level courses listed that are free.
It's never too late to start learning how to program, but making that decision is only the first step in a long journey.

If you didn't take this last time around it is well worth it.  Even if you're a pro searcher, you get reminded of things you may have forgotten.

We opened it a little over two years ago, and it's had a bit more than 600000 students go through the materials. I'm happy to say that we're launching a NEW and UPDATED version of the MOOC this ...

FYI, and Durham NC is one of the pilot cities.
By 2015 it seems like everyone has broadband access, but that "everyone" is very deceptive. Although the vast majority of middle- and high-income homes in the United States have broadband access at...

Could be handy if you need to share with someone who doesn't use Dropbox.
Dropbox isn't just an exceptionally popular service; it's one that redefined file syncing, back-up, and sharing. Most of us cannot imagine any other way to have our most important files sync across...

Will come in handy in the near future.
Windows 10 is just around the corner and if you're running Windows 8 you will be able to upgrade for free on July 29. Let's take a look at what the big changes are. Windows 8 wasn't well received when it launched, facing criticism for being too focused on touch devices. But with the newest, and supposedly last version of…

Google has added more and more parental control-style features to Android over the years. You can give a kid his or her own restricted user account, lock access to a specific app, or restrict what websites kids are allowed to use.
