Motorola Moto 360 Intro

The Moto 360: Your Next Watch?

With the amount of wearables that are expected to hit the market in the next few months, one of the most interesting is the Moto 360 by Motorola. After Google announced Android Wear, a special fork of their mobile OS that will specifically cater to wearables, the first device shown was a watch from Motorola.

Liberate Yourself: The Poor Man’s Cell Plan

If you’re a cellphone user living in the United States, you most likely have given your soul to one of the big four cellphone service providers: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. For the most part, when people get a new cellphone, they sign up for a new two year contract.

Google contacts: Glass without the glasses?

On April 15th (the day of this post), Google is allowing anyone with $1500 to buy their mainstream wearable Google Glass. But behind the scenes, Google is working on their next big thing… contacts?

Learn to code

Hey…learn to code!

Learning to code can be a daunting task that can make even the most computer-literate run away from their laptop in fear. While learning the art of coding can be incredibly difficult to start, once begun, it can lead to a number of great things!

While many people think that coding is only for the hardcore nerdy, but anyone can do it.

Don’t get me wrong, coding isn’t the most essential skill that someone has to learn, but it definitely can enhance the skills you already have in the eyes of those around you (especially if you’re looking for a job).
