Here's my look at apps for tax time.
We watch movies, listen to music, play games and make dinner reservations on our mobile phones, so why not do our taxes? You can, in fact, do your taxes on your phone or computer tablet, along with a lot of other things that can help make tax time more bearable. Here’s some of the more popular mobile apps available to help you calculate the government’s share. They are available at ...

Alta High had its "Shark Tank"-like competition for mobile apps today. Here's my story on it and wish these kids luck!
Sandy • Three spunky Alta High School teens — Brian Luu, Zach Gundry and Matt Blake — just came up with a million-dollar idea for a mobile app. Well, at least a $2,000 idea. The trio of students are the winners of this year’s annual IPOP Kick-App Idea Competition with their idea for a social-gaming mobile app called “Verve” that invites users to top other users in all kinds of ...

Hopefully, this good news won't be translated into higher Netflix prices.
Perhaps Comcast Internet subscribers will finally be able to watch “House of Cards” without the video stopping every five minutes to buffer. Netflix, the video streaming service that is the home to such cult shows as the political drama starring Kevin Spacey and the prison drama, “Orange is the New Black,” reported that the average Internet speed on its service for Comcast customers has finally gone up in February after ...

We really don't need the speed of one gigabit per second. At least not now.
Recently, a Google representative in Provo happily demonstrated what their speedy gigabit network, Google Fiber, would mean for consumers. He called up a web browser on a computer and went to YouTube. Then he started playing 10 videos in 10 separate tabs simultaneously. “See,” he said. “You’ll be able to watch 10 videos at the same time, and there’s no buffering on any of them.” I thought to myself: In ...

Google Fiber could be coming to Salt Lake City. Here's all the details in my story.
The high-speed fiber-optic Internet network known as Google Fiber could be coming to Salt Lake City. Google and city officials are announcing at 11 a.m. today that the Mountain View, Calif., search engine company will conduct a feasibility study this year to determine if Google Fiber is right for Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City is one of 34 cities in nine metropolitan areas around the U.S. that will be ...

"Bringing fiber to every household changes the dynamic."

Nonsense. If it's only in SLC and not the surrounding neighborhoods that's a far cry from "every household." It only changes the dynamic in one small portion of the area. Most of the people live around slc not in it. This isn't going to change jack squat for the majority of us in the area.

My story on the Office for iPad pricing structure
After a long four-year wait, Microsoft finally released the one group of apps that everyone wanted for their iPad — the Office 365 suite. The ultimate trifecta of productivity software, Word, the spreadsheet Excel, and PowerPoint, is now available for Apple’s mobile device — sorry, not the iPhone — and ports over all of the features of the original desktop versions. Yet it’s not just a mere copy of those ...

Microsoft finally announces Office 365 for iPad. Unfortunately, it's subscription only. Here's my story on today's announcement
Satya Nadella spent his first official media presentation as Microsoft’s new CEO Thursday introducing Office 365 for iPad, long one of the most requested apps for Apple’s computer tablet. Microsoft’s popular office suite, which includes the Microsoft Word word processor, Excel spreadsheet and PowerPoint presentation software, went on sale at noon today on Apple’s iTunes App Store. The application is free to download and view documents and present...

My column on the next step on Xfinity's X1 platform
I just had an upgrade to Xfinity X1, and the guide takes up the entire screen and covers the current show we are watching. I have four sets and it is the same [on each of them]. I asked the installation person but he said this is how it is programmed. But my daughter who just had this installed in her home has the guide on her side. I looked ...

If you're an Aereo subscriber in Utah, you have two more weeks to watch it.
Utah subscribers to the controversial Internet-based TV service Aereo have only two more weeks to enjoy it. The New York City-based Aereo was ordered last week to shut its service down in Utah after losing a major court battle against four Salt Lake City television stations. But U.S. District Court Judge Dale Kimball has granted the company 14 days to remain in operation while Aereo asks for an appeal to ...

Just be glad this guy isn't the CEO of YOUR company. Looks like AOL's top executive is the one who needs to be canned.
