Simple Online Bibliography Tool

  There is an abundance of technology gadgets, software, computers and websites for students today, but how do you know which ones are actually useful and effective?  I've recently discovered one that I wish I had when I was in high school and college.   It's called EasyBib and it's an online application which allows you to create bibliographies by simply entering the source information from books, magazines, newspapers, interviews, and even music and TV. The Modern Language Association (MLA) format is free, and it's an inexpensive upgrade if you need APA or Chicago...

Multi-tasking with your cell phone

I've discovered another cool mobile application called Quipit that will allow you to take pictures of paper documents or notes on a whiteboard and turn them into digital files (pdfs).

NoteWhen is a virtual sticky note that lets you stick notes on your monitor electronically.  You can use...

How far can you make it down the street before you notice someone with a phone to their ear, a laptop bag slung over their shoulder, those signature white ear buds blasting their favorite songs, or tiny Blackberry buttons being compulsively pressed by chronically cramped thumbs?  Likely, not very far at all.

According to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), on average, each American household owns 25 consumer electronics products, many of which are portable electronic devices.  For example, CEA estimates there are 178.5 million cell phones in use daily and that 32% of Americans own an MP3 player.   Clearly, portable electronics are becoming an essential part of life.  In most cases, gadgets are...
