Can the IoE Revolutionize Alternative Medicine?

Summary: TelePresence for SMBs: It isn’t just for the big guys anymore

Balancing certification studies with family and work

When it comes to furthering your career in technology, the name of the game is certifications. But studying for certifications requires time and energy and both of those are pretty scarce when you’re already working full time. You’ve just gotten out of work where you’ve had to use your body and brain for the last […]

Earlier this year, Los Angeles Unified School District announced a $30 Million deal with Apple to distribute iPads to every single one of their estimated 650,000 students.
