Two people meet online somehow. They exchange contact info, and they fall into a loop of talking to each other all day and night via texts, IMs, and/or phone calls. Maybe they end up meeting in real life, but the vast majority of their communication is virtual.
Yesterday, Adobe released an updated version of the favorite product of the internet age – Photoshop. They've unveiled the beta version of Photoshop CS6, which includes all the new features that will be available when Photoshop CS6 has its full release within the next few months. The best part of this news is that you can download the beta version of CS6 now!
Hold onto your glasses, geeks! The iPad 3 might get here sooner than we all thought. I have the iPad 2, and to be honest with you, I'm completely in love with it.
In light of the recent Blackberry outages, which just so happened to coincide with the day before the iPhone 4S was released (conspiracy alert!), it's come to our attention that we are obsessed with our phones. We can't go five minutes without checking our phones to see if we have texts, emails, tweets, or Facebook messages.
On October 4th, Apple made the huge announcement all technology geeks were waiting for -- the iPhone 5...oh wait. Just as we were all anticipating the announcement of the iPhone 5, Apple laughed in our faces as they announced the iPhone 4s.

According to a new study titled, "He Loves me, He Loves Me Not... Uncertainty Can Increase Romantic Attraction," women are more attracted to men when they can't tell how much the men like them.
Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr have (sadly) become a drug to our generation (and to our parents, all of a sudden). While social media definitely has its perks, it also has many cons, and I’m not just talking about how easy it is for my entire family to become friends with me and comment on every one of my statuses.
Another year has almost come to an end...and what a year it’s been! But instead of recapping the last twelve months by clicking through tagged photos on Facebook or scrolling through oodles of Twitter updates, let us look back at the technology that make it all possible.
Receiving a text message gives me a blissful, momentary high. A day without access to the internet is a sad day. If a couple of days go by and I haven’t signed onto Facebook (like that ever happens), I get antsy and feel out of the loop. This loathsome habit isn’t exactly an insightful revelation that came from deep soul searching or a problem unique to myself.
So there was that one crazy night - you lost count of Jell-O shots, games of beer pong, and perhaps even where you were. You wake up in the morning, the grogginess sets in, and you feel your wallet, your keys, and -- that's it. Your phone is AWOL, and in the new era of technology you're up a creek without a paddle as a college student.
If you haven’t dated a nerd yet in college, you should really give it a spin. We’re generally intelligent, motivated to treat you like a princess, and can fix your computer to boot. That said, we do have our fair share of surprising quirks that you should be prepared for.
It’s no surprise to say technology has completely changed the way we, as a society, come together. From Twitter to Foursquare, J-Date to Match.com, gone are the days of quainter communication. Forget about lying in bed twirling the phone cord around your finger as you trade campus gossip with your BFF....
It’s no secret that we live in a technology-obsessed age. Smart phones dominate our lives, laptops are constantly...on our laps, and a few hours sans wireless scares us more than the recession. Although they’ve all made life undeniably cushy, they’ve also impinged upon a practice that is absolutely essential for our mental and physical health
Since you're currently on a website reading this, it's probably a little redundant to say how much of our lives take place online nowadays. Suffice to say that except for the eating, breathing and sleeping parts, almost everything else you do can be done on the Internet, including meeting that special someone...
Technology is amazing, we can all attest to that (especially if you’re reading this online on the best website ever. I <3 the Internet.) But technology, has also made things, like the way in which we communicate, a lot less personal.
Another week has passed and I’m one week closer to graduation. In ten short days I will stand up, toss my cap in the air, and graduate in front of family, friends, professors…and a bunch of random people I don’t know.
Sexting always seemed like a no brainer to me - don't send naked pictures of yourself out into the world unless you want everybody to see them (see the smarts a college education buys!) - but it seems like the line has gotten blurrier and blurrier and now I'm not sure what to think.
It's officially the future, people, and while there may not be flying cars just yet, the advancements in technology are plentiful. Especially when it comes to gettin' some. Yes, sex has gone tech, and I'm talking about more than those nakey photos you've been sending to the boyf.
With every new year comes a handful of far-fetched resolutions and often unrealistic goals we set for ourselves. We vow to be better in the new year: to be thinner, study more, drink less, exercise more, etc, etc. And then we throw them all away during our post-NYE hangover the next morning.
This week, I'm counting down the ten craziest technologies. Whether they're crazy in the "what the f&!# way" or crazy in the "I need that NOW" way, I'm listing them all, from social media to iPhone apps. Gen-Y has access to the wackiest and most innovative technology right now and here's my "Weekly Ten" take on all of it:
Regardless of whether you are majoring in computer science or can’t even figure out how to type on an iPhone (guilty), you gotta admit that technology is pretty cool. One recurring downside, however, is that most techie products require lots and lots of electricity which, in turn, requires lots and lots of oil.
Dear Obnoxious Phone Users of the World: While I will never deny that my cell phone has allowed me the opportunity to amuse myself during a boring class, I understand that there is a time and a place for texting.
Scientists these days must be bored out of their minds, because many of the health studies that have been cropping up lately are painfully uninteresting. The results are so obvious that they might as well skip the experiment and just use their common sense.
I am, without a doubt, addicted to technology. I spend 10 hours a day in front of my computer and the minute I step away, I'm checking my email/Facebook/Twitter/IMs/stock market reports from my iPhone. (Note: stock market reports are a real downer these days.)
