A Beginner Guide to Bitcoin - Everything you Need to Know!

+ There’s a lot of information floating out there on the Internet about the new currency sensation known as Bitcoin. The concept of this virtual form of money has been something quite difficult to explain since its origins. Even though it first debuted years ago, very few people, in relative terms, still have a working knowledge of what bitcoins are, how they hold value, how they are produced, or even anything about them, really. Let’s take a deep look at this new form of currency to take away some of the mystique and pool together the cold, hard facts.

The first thing people usually wonder is where on earth this bitcoin thing came from, anyway. The story of its origins is actually very interesting. The concept of bitcoin was first described by Satoshi Nakamoto back in 2008 in a paper that was published on a website....

The rise and RISE Of GOOGLE

+ Every few years, a company rises from obscurity to take the world by storm. Few of these companies have the power to influence and control so much of the way the world functions. Today, that company is Google.

Google started in 1996 as a simple search engine. As other tech giants seemingly start the same way, Google was born in a garage with an initial investment of $100,000. The original name for Google was Backrub. Hardly seems like a tech giant, eh? Today Google is worth an estimated $395,000,000,000. Yes, $395 Billion. When the company went public in 2004, over 1000 of their employees became instant millionaires, including the company masseuse who worked for $450 a week part time but invested her money in shares upon advice from her clients.

iPhone 6 Plus Is Great For Gamers

+ While I hate the word “phablet,” there’s no denying that it’s helpful to have a term for what is becoming a unique category, separate from the smartphones and tablets that came before them. Not always the most convenient in one hand on the go and not as suited to content consumption as a tablet when at home, bigger phones have their own niche that appeals to users who demand big screens and longer battery life.
With the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has stepped into the category by scaling the hardware of the six up while (in some ways) scaling the software from the iPad down. The result is a device that you can use all day to do some of the quick tasks we always do on our phones while also consuming media as you would on a tablet: traditionally, in landscape, held in two hands or propped up against something.

The Definitive Guide to Raspberry pi for Noobs

+ Technology expands by leaps and bounds every single year, it seems. Sometimes, the time period seems even shorter. You can purchase a mobile phone that is the latest in its field of processor chips and touch screen capabilities in March and by June it is rendered obsolete. One of the most practical applications for technology is how it relates to education. Computers and other forms of technology help improve the availability of information and how children process this information. It is then, of course, imperative that children understand how to use computers and other technological advances. This is where Raspberry Pi comes into place.

Microsoft Announces Windows 10

Call me crazy, but I think businesses are going to like Windows 10. By reintroducing the start menu, adding easy-to-access multiple desktops and even giving the Command Prompt its first upgrade in years, Microsoft is doing more than paying lip service to a disenfranchised business customer — it's delivering what could be the best Windows for business ever. As is Microsoft’s way, though, it took the long way to get here. Windows 8 was a dangerous detour borne out of a real desire to bring desktop and laptop computing into the modern age, where touchscreens are everywhere. Doing something as aggressive as removing the Start Button and, with it, the Start Menu was a calculated risk, but perhaps not that risky since Start wasn’t even a part of the original Windows 1.0, Windows 3 or even the widely used Windows 3.1. When it did arrive in 1995, with the Rolling Stones “Start Me Up” as its theme song, no less, it transformed causal and business computing. Everyone became wedded to it. Or so it seemed.
