I started smoking for the same reasons most people begin the nasty habit: I was young and stupid
Like many teenagers, I could care less about the negative aspects of smoking. Money wasn’t yet a burden on my everyday existence, the long term effects meant little to nothing and I had myself convinced that quick spritz of spray deodorant and some gum masked the smell well enough
The truth was that smoking, once a fun and social activity then began to control my life
Don’t get me wrong, I still…
BlackBerry’s dedicated messaging app is growing at a decent clip, and now has a larger active audience than Tango did when it raised its recent $280 million funding round, with 85 million users engaging with the platform on at least a monthly basis. It’s not resting on its laurels, however; the network introduced new features via an update today, including bringing stickers to the… Read More

Don’t count your chickens before they hatch — especially if they’re 11 feet long and weigh 600 pounds, like the “chicken from hell” dinosaur scientists introduced to the world on Wednesday.
The dinosaur lived about 66 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period and somewhat resembles a modern-day emu or cassowary — if an emu had 4-inch claws. Its main unappealing characteristics include those treacherous claws, toothless beak and feathered appearance. While the beast’s fossils were…

If passed, the law would require manufacturers to install a “kill switch,” or a mechanism to disable stolen phones. The law would not only protect sensitive personal data stored on the phone, but also ruin the device’s resale value. A group of four senators, led by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), introduced the bill on Thursday.

(The bill’s full text is embedded below.)
If enacted, the bill would essentially keep net neutrality…
Was there really a time before Macs? More importantly, was there really a time before the Macintosh Operating System? As I sit here typing on a Macbook Air running Mac OS X Mavericks, the pinnacle of the art form of Mac, with every technical obstacle between me and the interface removed, it’s genuinely hard to remember it wasn’t always this way
All computers that weren’t the Mac imitated its style. In the modern digital world, we are surrounded by its legacy. It’s like a fish trying to…
