  • Why the smartwatch can't afford to be another smartphone

    By Edited by James Henderson | 21 April, 2015 04:10

  • Minecraft's Notch revealed in behind-the-scenes tale

    By Elizabeth Heichler | 27 November, 2013 15:52

    The wildly popular game "Minecraft" is a lot like its creator, Markus "Notch" Persson: modest in style and origin and apparently still true to its roots despite phenomenal success. In their new book just published in the U.S., authors Daniel Goldberg and Linus Larsson go behind the scenes to tell the story of how their shy fellow Swede became the indie games industry's first real rock star.

  • Facebook: The other Internet

    By Mike Elgan | 18 May, 2015 20:43

    You can do almost everything online. Most people spend most of their web time doing just three things: communicating, buying things and consuming content.

  • Best Android and iOS apps of the last three months

    By Ryan Faas | 03 October, 2014 07:14

    After a bungled release of iOS 8.0.1, Apple finally managed to get HealthKit into the hands of iPhone owners. I've been pretty open about the ways that I think technologies like fitness trackers and HealthKit can change lives (and for anyone interested in keeping score, my Fitbit-related weight loss is now up to 42 pounds) and, having worked in healthcare IT, I think there is an immense amount of potential in these technologies.
