Think of the last time you went on holiday, whether it was the next state over, backpacking through Europe, or maybe scuba diving off the Australian coast.

It's been a long two weeks for those involved in the Apple vs. Samsung Trial, and it doesn't look to be going anywhere. It seems less like a trial, and more like a catty squabble, and Judge Lucy Koh is growing tired of it. Both Samsung and Apple have been unable to reach final instructions for the jury, which would be given to the judge and read to jurors. These instructions are the rules the jury follows when deciding who is guilty in the ca....
You can see the prevalence of smartphones everywhere you go.

But there could be one down side to this higher technology...it's yet another way cell phone users can be reached by marketing and spam (despite there being laws in place to restrict unsolicited mark....
How far technology has come in such a short period of time is mind boggling. It's hard to believe how we ever survived without our cell phones, GPS, and computers. Or how we stayed connected and updated without Facebook and Twitter. You may even hear the cliche "Back in my day..." statements, every once in a while, when we feel lost without them.
