Why You Don’t Have To Use PayPal For Online Transactions: 5 PayPal Alternatives

Online shopping and online purchases have grown into something so important in many of our lives that it’s strange, at least for me, to think of a world where it doesn’t exist. PayPal is one service that really pioneered that world, especially in terms of purchasing without needing a credit card, debit card, or gift card.

Apps And Smartphone Equipment To Take With You Into The Zombie Apocalypse

Technology failing to work remains the most ridiculous genre trope of the zombie apocalypse.

How To Create A Graph From Raw Data Files In Any Office Product

Wouldn’t it be nice to have the ability to just open up an Excel spreadsheet or a Word document, and without having to do anything at all, data gets read directly out of a text or CSV data file and loads directly into a chart embedded onto your spreadsheet or Word document?
