Child Safety for the 21st Century

One time, when I was a little girl, I lost my Dad at a local amusement park. Boy, was that inconvenient! I’d have much rather spent those 45 minutes riding rides or watching the fireworks show instead of heading for the nearest park attendant to help me search for him.

I never really believed that a simple curve on a screen could improve the immersion you feel when watching something, but it was true. Now, LG … More →

Meet the Nokia Lumia 1520 smartphone

To the dismay of some, the word “Phablet” is catching on. The Phone + Tablet hybrids technically first existed with the Dell Streak, but they actually became popular with the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note.
