After years of stagnation during the recession that began in 2008, there may be good news for the makers of IT infrastructure: companies may start spending again next year.
In reality, they began spending more in 2012, according to a new study, but the pace is expected to pick up in 2013.
Yesterday we wrote an article that notes quite clearly that the tablet is killing off the eBook reader. The eBook - or rather true eBooks, by which we mean those that make use of electronic ink/electronic paper display hardware (such as the original Kindles and the current Amazon Paperwhite Kindle) and not tablets sold to provide reading capabilities, is interesting because of its extremely long battery life.

On Wednesday night, December 12, 2013, while many of us were busy watching the 121212 Sandy Hurricane Benefit Concert, Google took it upon itself to offer a little benefit of its own for Apple iPhone users by finally releasing the newest version of Google Maps to the Apple App store. So, after about three months of many iPhone users dealing with withdrawal symptoms, the world can now return to where it was before iOS 6 became available in September and blew Google Maps away.
Ah, New York city. The greatest city in the world, in my opinion at least, that is filled to the brim with almost every kind of ethnicity there is, in addition to art, theatre, shopping, restaurants and an electric culture. A major staple of NYC besides the dirty water dogs or hotdogs as tourists like to call them is cabs. In fact, it's hard to even picture this metropolis without these yellow taxis transporting people anywhere they wish to go with that number estimated at nearly 12,779 in this location alone, and that isn't even including car services.
Call it playing the odds, but NASA figures that when the sun rises on December 22, we're all still going to be here, and that the Mayan calendar thing will be proven so much stardust. NASA is so confident, in fact, that they've not only put together a video, but recently released the video explaining why the 12-21-12 was a colossal failure, and they've even entitled it "Why the World Didn't End Yesterday".
A new IHS iSuppli Consumer Electronics special report from information and analytics provider HIS points to what is perhaps something enormously obvious - or at least what should be enormously obvious. The dedicated standalone eBook reader - first made famous by the original Amazon Kindles, is on the path of the dinosaur and dodo bird - heading rapidly for extinction. More or less.
I recently had the chance to write an article about the brilliant woman who goes by the name of Kim Kardashian and is known all the over the world for her extremely deep thoughts ( I am completely joking). Although I am not sure why people love her so much and I think it probably has something to do with her monstrous ... heart, it was revealed that in 2012 she ranked as the most looked for person on the Yahoo website.
Pinterest has quickly become one of the top social networking sites out there, sparking the interest of crafters, event hosts, fashionistas and inspiration lovers worldwide. Emphasis on the word "fashionista" - the site has a user base that is up to 97 percent female.
Very recently, some of the TMCnet editorial team was debating the merits of spending $500 on Samsung's new, Android-based, LTE-enabled, 16.3 megapixel (MP) Galaxy camera. Add to the cost of the camera the cost of a data plan that would allow you to use that capability and we end up talking about a fairly large outlay of cash.
Network security is high on a lot of people's lists these days. Keeping computers safe from attacks, keeping networks safe from attacks, and keeping the information contained therein from slipping out and being misused is a major priority. But according to a new report released today from Broadband-Testing, not every security device may be as powerful as their competitors on store shelves.
