PeopleFinders – Can You Really Find Anyone Anywhere?

Back in 2006 through 2008, I spent many months working with a team of researchers trying to track down the origins of a very strange online hoax. These days, the details of the hoax are not so important as are the lessons that the research project taught me. The most important lesson was that you can accomplish a whole lot of amazing things if you just have the right tools at your disposal.

Livescribe Sky Wi-Fi Smartpen Review and Giveaway [Twitter Exclusive]

A few months ago, I took a close look at Livescribe’s Echo Smartpen, and was very impressed. Having liked the Echo Smartpen so much, I couldn’t imagine how it could get any better, so when Livescribe released the Sky Wi-Fi Smartpen I had to check it out. On paper, the Sky Smartpen should be everything the Echo was, but with the added bonus of wireless syncing. What could go wrong?

Will Emailing The Executives Of The Company Who Built Your Computer Really Help?

We live in a very personal world where PC brands try to connect with us on a more intimate level. Sure, it’s just another form of advertising, but with social networking, it’s easier than ever to get in touch with these companies for support, information on new features, and insight on future products.
