What Do You Have Set As Your Homepage? [We Ask You]

The idea of a homepage has changed over the years. It was once regarded as the portal to the rest of the Web, and your choices were quite limited.

One thing’s for sure – Dropbox is no longer the one-size-fits-all solution.

Improve Your Knowledge Of Google Maps With A Fun Game Called Google Cube

When was the last time you remembered how easy it is now is to find the best way to get from A to B thanks to Google Maps? As someone who grew up in a time before the Web became the mainstream behemoth it is today, I try and remind myself often how banal tasks have been made much easier.
