Getting Around (And About) The New Windows 8 UI

By: Mustaza Mustafa


"In my mind, Apple has always been the king of intuitive design and ingenuity. It shows in every product create and it reaches to almost all aspects of life. Microsoft, in it's most recent OS release, Windows 8, is trying to win back the community and attract new customers with new touch-intuitive design. Rather than seeing folders on your desktop, you'll be seeing a series of tiles. It's about time Microsoft changes it up!"

Google Offering Analytics for your Email Inbox

By: Samantha Murphy


"Google has a new program called Google Meter, which will monitor your email activity to track things such as how long it takes for you to usually respond to an email, the typical length of your sent emails, etc. Even though I thought this idea was sort of creepy, I think it would be really interesting to try. Is anyone interested in giving it a whirl?"
