Google Working on Broadband Internet Network
What would having Google as an ISP be like? I can only imagine it would be the best Internet browsing experience ever. The search engine giant said this week it wants to begin testing broadband service in select areas of the U.S. Fiber-optic networks could deliver speeds of 1 gigabit per second to as many as 500,000 Americans.

7 Factors for Generating Traffic to Your Blog
There are numerous ways to get traffic to your blog, but some are more lucrative than others. Everything from social networking, RSS feeds, e-mail newsletters and search engines can be valuable to a blogger to generate hits.

8 Apps for Valentine’s Day
Today being Valentine’s Day, it’s important to not only pay extra attention to the special someone in your life (not that you shouldn’t already do that on a daily basis), but it’s also the perfect time to download some new iPhone/iPod Touch apps.

There’s even an app to help you write a love note if you’re not very good at that stuff.

If apps aren’t your thing, there’s some other high-tech ways to say ‘I love you.’
