Amazing Grace!

The amazing Grace Hopper that is – one of the most underrated heroes of the 20th century! The comic below was created by artist Pablo Stanley, to illustrate the fantastic story of the lady known as “Amazing Grace”…

Is My PC Killing Me?

It appears that my big I’m BAAAAACK! announcement was a bit premature, as I found myself in agony once again not long after I posted it. And, as much as I hate to admit it, I’m almost certain now that it was the time and effort I spent putting that post together that caused my…

The World’s First Anti-Social Network!

Okay, so I finally fell into one of those fitful “caffeinated” sleeps, only to be awakened AGAIN by what I thought was thunder. Being pretty groggy at the time, it took me a few minutes to realize that very regular “giants bowling next door” sound I was hearing actually was coming from next door –…

This Side Up

I found this little gem in the This Side Up post on the Miss Cellania blog. You all obviously know how to use a computer, and there’s probably a few of you who can remember really slow download speeds, but I wonder how many of you can relate to how this story ends? See more…

Meet Watson

Remember IBM’s Deep Blue computer system that’s been besting chess champions for years? Well, meet their latest super games playing machine, Watson, and guess what game is in the cross-hairs now! And guess what? Watson just beat former champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter at a Jeopardy test match! See IBM – Watson for more.…
