“Yet if hope has flown away, in a night, or in a day. In a vision, or in none, is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream.”

Today’s new generation of poets have adapted the best of what technology has to offer in their work. Whether it’s the latest Android smartphone or tablet, coupled with the best apps in Android’s infantry, [...]

Television – you either love it or hate it. Or love-hate it? Anyway, we all have a deep, if sometimes ambivalent relationship with our TV sets. We use TV to relax, to get informed, to stay in touch, to learn things, to lose time, to forget about problems, and the list can go on and on. It’s no wonder that many have tried (and mostly failed) to offer a truly portable TV-watching device.

Coffee is probably the next best thing after ice cream and chocolate, at least for us. So it’s mind-boggling to know that it was first discovered by a goat. Yeah, the one with the beard and the horns. In the 9th century, a young boy named Kaldi noticed that his goat acted weird when eating some specific cherries. Turns out, the goat ate coffee cherries.
