One device for all things. No more need for a desktop at home and at work. No need to have a game system, just run it via Steam. Why buy lots of cloud storage when you can carry most of your files around with you everywhere, and tap to send them to another device. #ubuntuedge  is  worth the bet.

Want 10 gb of free online storage? Sign up here with this link: https://copy.com?r=MpITvr
Copy is yet another cloud storage site. They have clients for #linux   #microsoftwindows   #macosx  . Can't say no to more storage. 
To celebrate Copy's launch, earn 5 GB of extra free storage for yourself and whoever you refer each time you introduce someone new to Copy. This is a limited time opportunity to rack up huge amounts of extra free storage while we build the initial buzz around Copy!

I love creating custom maps with #googlemaps, but I wish that it had the ability to place circles or other shapes with a set radius around locations. I think this would prove to be a highly useful tool for students and businesses alike.

"The only writer I can think of in all of English literature to have out-written his name - to have been given a really weird and funny-sounding name and yet replace its phonetic symbolism with a new symbolism of its own being - is...

Shakespeare.


We are so used to that name by now that I think we forget how truly odd it is. A blunt description of an intrinsically funny action - shaking a spear. It is not even a dignified action, as Swordthrust might be, he is merely Shake-speare."

This viewpoint eloquently explains what is really going on... the welfare state as it is now (in many countries) is operating as a ponzi scheme.

Perhaps America needs to learn from Poland. Standardized testing brings everyone to the lowest denominator. Poland seems to have said catch up to the highest and been rewarded.
