When you were 10 and your mom demanded you finish your vegetables or go to your room, you were mad. Even as kids, we hated it when we were ordered to do something. Car insurance is a federal mandate, yet that’s only one of the reasons why most Americans would rather do just about anything […]
The mark of true greatness in tech is longevity. Because if you’ve survived more than an 18-month product cycle and endured…well, you’re one of the lucky few. That’s part of why the continuing devotion and market dominance of Microsoft Excel is such a historic story. Today, 35 years after its introduction, this spreadsheet titan is […]
From national and local news anchors to Ellen Degeneres, from Saturday Night Live to the all-star Together At Home concert, we’re learning another new reality of our 2020 entertainment world: everyone has their own home production equipment these days.
