Google Glass

It's a new product from everyone's favorite internet company Google. They're effectively a new form of internet to go, which is evidently wearing it on your face. The theory itself is rather questionable. Google basically know everything about you, what you search for, what you pay for (Google Wallet), who you know (Google Plus-which is awesome), and all about your emails. The only thing they couldn't know about you is what you do when you're not using electronics. Google Glass is their response. Anyways, beyond conspiracy theories, Google Glass is actually an interesting idea. It is basically the first step into making humans robotic.

Memorializing Memorial Day-Remembering What We Stand For

This weekend is one where we get a day off from working. That's how most people consider it. While it is a good thing to get some well-deserved rest, there is a reason behind it. Memorial Day is a very important day for millions of honorable men and women who have served in the United States military. It is something that few can fully understand, but all should recognize. Without those who serve we would not be able to enjoy the comfortable, enjoyable, safe life that many of us have. So thank you to anyone who has served or is serving, we owe you an unrepayable debt.

So what can you do to commemorate the fighters who keep us safe? If you see soldiers, thank them, don't be shy, often soldiers are nice and reputable people who appreciate the thanks. You could go farther and offer to buy them something if they're on line for say, their morning coffee (national guard are soldiers too).

Thanks for reading, and I hope you like the stream of new articles that will be coming to iExcellence. Bye!
