Here we collected all the shortcuts you need to master Windows 8. If you’ve upgraded to Windows 8 or bought a new PC that came with Windows 8, you’ll find that a lot has changed.

iOS & Facebook Integration: Genuinely Useful or Waste of Time?

I’m not one to view the world through rose-colored glasses, but let me at least show you some of the benefits and their nuisances of having Facebook on your iPhone.
