We use Google everyday for all sorts of things. We search for confusing terms, we look up restaurants for places to dine, we even use Google to find out more about our business competitors. Google is everywhere and presumably, everyone knows how to use it –right?

With the release of the iPhone 5, the debate of which phone to choose, the Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone, is hotter than ever. I weigh in on the pros and cons with my feedback on the Samsung Galaxy S3.

To be quite honest, I generally use my phone for email, voice calls, texting, calendar and not much else. So bear with me, because this review will only focus around the usability of these items.

The iPhone 5 was just released this past Friday; I’ve been pleased with my iPhone 4 for just over 2 years now so I was sure I would love the iPhone 5, but I couldn’t help but wonder if there was something better out there. I was super excited when Samsung sent me the Galaxy S3 to review; the timing couldn’t be better!

If you’re mistrustful of the things coming across your web browser each day, you may be a cyber skeptic. A delve into cyber skepticism –the good, bad and ugly.

Social networking has done many things. It has opened up a more direct form of communication that lets us meet others who are large distances away. It has also provided a place for people to connect based on interests, passions or lifestyle. It has increased the amount of time we spend online and through mobile devices, we are now constantly connected. It has also created a bit of a gap when it comes to reality.

Fitness for geeks is a new concept; utilizing gaming technology to help geeks stay fit while they play digital games. A health prescription to the tech addicted.

Geeks inevitably play games, not always because they love them (but some do) but because they are victims of circumstance. It’s illogical to sit in an office for hours, doing absolutely nothing but designing or coding so many geeks can’t help but engage themselves with tech games. This is more of a boredom killer than a health prescription, making fitness for geeks an issue.

After over a year of speculation, the long awaited iPhone 5 release is a mere week away. Apple has a way of keeping its cards close, especially when it comes to new releases, so Apple’s invite to next week’s media event is no exclusion. Just take a look at the above invitation, which was sent citing no reason for the invite. The only clue? A not so subtle 5 in the shadow of the event invite.

SheBytes began reporting on the much anticipated iPhone 5 release all the way back in June of 2011 (just check out these iPhone 5 mockups).  Back then, the iPhone 5 rumor mill had been sadly dissapointed by Apple’s release of the iPhone 4S. Now, a year later, we are finally ready for the iPhone 5 release!  And if the media invite above is any indication, it will most definitely be an iPhone 5 that is announced.
