Robot Ketchup Dispenser, What You Didn’t See In The Commercial [Video]

I used to love to watch Robot Wars on TV. It was a show where science geeks would pit their homemade robots against each other in a battle to the death. I have always been intrigued by robots and what they could do for mankind. Actually what they could do for me to make my life easier.

Calling For Computer Help? Your Call Will Be Completed In Another Time Zone

It is no secret that most of the help lines that you call for computer assistance originate from other lands. Most of the time that exotic far off place is the country of India.

Computer Passwords – Is It Time To Forget About Them?

My Dad always used to say " a lock will only keep an honest man out". I think that is true on the Internet too. Passwords are there only to slow down the bad guys.

AT&T Can You Hear Us? Why Your Phone Doesn’t Work

In my line of work I have a great big mouthpiece and when we speak here at 97.3 The Dawg a lot of people can hear our opinions. I have to be careful how I use this forum.

As you can tell by reading our Facebook posts from yesterday it isn't just Bruce Mikells that is having an issue. So if I'm not throwing stones what is the purpose of this article?

I am not much of a video game player. I enjoy a game of Wii Bowling every two or three months but for the most part I leave the games alone.
