Apple's new education focused tablet seems dead on arrival


Monday, April 16, 2018 by

Open source software turns 20


Tuesday, February 6, 2018 by

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in an app context it will lead to lost users and ad imprints.

Why 2015 will be the year of Microsoft


Tuesday, January 20, 2015 by
