A study conducted by the University of Texas found that people with messy offices are less efficient, less organized, and less imaginative that people with clean desks. Hey, I knew that!

Once you find out what YouTube can do with audio transcription, you will first be amazed and then, be using it a lot. You can watch [...]

It used to be that a cell phone was a cell phone was a cell phone. Then Research in Motion came along with their Blackberry cell phones that would enable the sending and [...]
