Seriously though, this did you ever want to know about a computer scientist’s computer? Now, you can read about mine and see it in action!

Google Music

So, if you haven’t heard, Google has put their foot into the music game with their new service “Google Music.” Google music is like a giant iTunes in the cloud in which your library can wirelessly sync to android devices, you can buy new music for $0.99, and store 20K songs for free. So there […]

My MacBook Pro Was Terrible

A Personal Anecdote from Zach Bornheimer: You may think that this article will bash Apple, but it only will for about 40%.

Learning PHP … My Take On It
