Posted January 30, 2013 @ 4:30 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Remember the landmark ruling in Apple’s favor following the big Apple v. Samsung patent lawsuit last summer? Well the TL;DR version could be summed up as follows: A jury found that Samsung “willfully” infringed upon some of Apple’s patents and awarded them $1.049 Billion.

Disney’s animated short ‘Paperman’ is now online!

Posted January 30, 2013 @ 1:06 pm CST by Kevin Jones

If you watched the incredible Wreck-it Ralph in the theater, you were treated to an outstanding animated short film during the previews called ‘Paperman’. It uses a new technique to combine hand-drawn and computer generated art to tell an incredible story without words. This film is, in my estimation, guaranteed to win a ton of […]

Today Apple confirmed the existence of a 128GB iPad. It looks like the rumors from 9-to-5 Mac were spot on with regards to the bump in storage as well as the […]

Earlier this month, Microsoft finally merged it’s messenger service with Skype, a move that hoped to spark some growth for the video conferencing/calling/chat service.

NYC Public Schools going paperless?

Posted January 24, 2013 @ 3:27 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Ever wanted to be the first to go to Mars? May be easier than you think

Posted January 23, 2013 @ 3:50 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Not sure how we missed this one, but if you’re 18 years of age or older and “have a deep sense of purpose,” you could be one of the first 8 humans to live on Mars. Nope, this isn’t a joke and though I don’t expect it to look anything like (the original) Total Recall; […]
