Pocket Informant is a cross-platform mobile app that is installed on every phone and tablet I use.
 

When things seem too good to be true, that often is the case. This was the case with OnLive Desktop, which brought Windows 7 access to the iPad for free.
Facebook's move to nab Instagram has little to do with filters and everything to do with mobile.
Equipped with a USB 3.0 port, Acer's C120 projector can be powered directly by a connected PC.
Due to cost pressures, it looks like Google's own slate will cost the same as the Kindle Fire, and be launched in July.
A minor update to the Android software on the Galaxy Nexus has broken signal reception on those phones. This is further proof the Android update system is hopelessly broken.
My full time professional naval architecture job includes serving as a marine salvage engineer when casualties occur. Mobile technology has helped me get my job done in several different ways.
Some iPad 3 owners are having problems with the unit's Wi-Fi, while most are working OK. Having a small percentage of failures is just a fact of life in the electronics manufacturing game.
Latest Reviews

Razer Blade
Razer's first laptop, the Razer Blade, is a thin gaming computer with some futuristic design touches, but a high price means you're paying for design -- and for the second-screen signature Switchblade UI interface that doesn't do as much as we hoped it would...yet.

SoloPro G3 (2 TB)
The ioSafe Solo G3 makes an excellent backup solution for those who need to make sure their important data survives even the worst disasters.
Nikon D4 (body only)
The Nikon D4 offers many significant improvements from previous professional-grade SLRs, such as the D3S, as well as excellent shooting performance, autofocusing speed, and video recording.
Pentax K-01 (with 40mm lens, black)
It's a great option if you have a shelf full of K-mount lenses and don't mind missing some action shots, but the Pentax K-01 isn't such a great option for a typical amateur photographer.
HTC Titan II (AT&T)
The HTC Titan II pushes the limit of just how big and capable a Windows smartphone can be. If it weren't for the lower-priced Nokia Lumia 900, the Titan II would be the greatest Windows Phone 7 handset to walk the earth.

Simon Hensby is a successful "failure" in my eyes. He gave up his regular job because his autistic kid was having trouble and could not cope in regular school. He lived on part-time jobs just to keep going.

In the meantime he was creating useful educational software that an autistic child could use. Now millions of people and schools enjoy what he sacrificed to create!

Now to me that is success! SEE MORE AT SCHOOLGENIUS

Added Comment: Blastgroups provides lots of freebies. However it has a confusing interface. I have been doing computers since the 70's and it IS confusing to me.
