Technology is obviously a great tool but it can be a great distraction as well. So use it to your advantage and for the benefit of your business. Wikipedia defines it as: "Technology is the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, and crafts."

Saturday, November 13, 2010, 5:06 AM | Leave Comment

Another e-Reader has come on board. This one is called Kno. I guess the founders didn’t like the “k” being so silent all the time in the word “know” so they called their portable device “Kno” as the new entry in the not-so-saturated-as-yet e-Reader market.

I can make a lot of comments on what’s going on in the nation’s capital especially on Capitol Hill but that would be from the outside what I have learned from the media.
