by: William Neilson JrMay 14, 2014


There has not been any tech service more over-hyped in the last year than AT&T’s GigaPower service.

by: William Neilson JrMay 12, 2014
On Thursday, California and Minnesota took steps toward becoming the first states in the country to pass laws requiring smartphones to feature stronger anti-theft technology.

Apple and Microsoft dropped their opposition to the bill once tablets were excluded from the requirement and extending the deadline to July 2015.
