Some great resources, for both adult and youth programming.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation and the American Library Association (ALA) today announced the launch of a new, redesigned version of its website, smartinvesting.ala.org.

There's a problem with traditional video conferencing clients. Though they are in abundance, they're only remotely useful if all parties are collectively using the same client. Popular services such as VoxOX, ooVoo, IMO and, of course, Skype and Google Hangouts all have this problem, thus putting a damper on quick collaboration. One "solution" to this is…

 #5G
 
We'll be seeing more and more articles about 5G networks as the technology gets closer to reality.

Some early tests have achieved 1 Terabit per second (Tbps) speeds — enough to download 10 full-length feature films in under a second. Seriously. Fifth generation mobile data networks will eventually replace our current 4G technology, which operates at…
