I’m 15 and 1/2 days away from taking the CTS exam.

In The Cloud(s)?

All photobooth jokes aside – everyone in the tech world is talking about the “cloud.” iCloud, Cloud Computer, yada yada yada. Now, Adobe has launched the Adobe Creative Cloud. Basically, all your Adobe CS […]

Digital Signage Makes Me Hungry


So there we were. Husband and I on a date and hanging with some friends in downtown Chapel Hill. We ate dinner. We were walking back to our car. Minding our own business. And there they were. Digital Signs. In Krispy Kreme. Their flashy, yet totally crisp 1080p images rotating between soft serve ice cream and freshly, warmly glazed […]

The Power of Innovation and What We Do

Have you seen this yet? Almost 2 million people have… If you haven’t… get out the tissues.
