Bill Cosby On His Most Recent Death: Please Stop, It Isn’t Funny [Video]

One bad thing about Twitter is that it is a huge medium for misinformation.  So many people see an interesting tweet, instantly believe it, and retweet it, without fact-checking anything.  That’s exactly what happened recently when Bill Cosby was reported dead for the fourth time.

He’s not dead, of course, but thanks to the guy who tweeted it, everyone thought he was.  Cosby’s family and friends called his house in tears to find out if he was okay.  The person behind this clearly does not understand how upsetting this is.  “I just wanna say to friends of that person,” Cosby said in a CNN interview, “just tell him to stop because it isn’t funny.”   Read more of this post

I Live The Google Lifestyle Too

Back in May, Devon wrote an article entitled “I Live The Google Lifestyle.”  I can relate to some of the things he said, and I’ve been meaning to write my own version of that article.  So a whole 3 months later, here it is.

Google is going to take over the world, starting with the Internet.  Seriously, Google is everywhere.  It started back in the late ’90s as a simple search engine, but it now monopolizes the Internet industry.   Read more of this post

#SeattleBound

I absolutely love where technology is has been going in the last couple years. The merger of technology and life as we know it is becoming closer and closer to becoming complete. Things like FlipBoard for the iPad and the Sixth Sense Project all just make me giddy inside. Just the other day, I saw something that will probably change my whole perspective on the way I look at the world around me. Read more of this post

As any webmaster will tell you cheap online file storage is hard to come by. I have found a company that offer free 2GB of convenient online storage called Dropbox. Let me tell you more about it.

Find New Music, Books, And Movies That You Will Like

TasteKid is a discovery engine that provides instant recommendations for new music, movies, shows, books and authors based on your existing preferences.  It’s a cool concept, but I was skeptical at first about how well it would work.  Then I gave it a try, and it blew me away.  I input a few movies that I have seen and liked, and it output a bunch of movie titles, most of which I have also seen, and enjoyed.  This proves just how accurate this thing is.   Read more of this post
