GeekSoft's File Expert HD tweaks its already worthy file manager with display, video, and interface enhancements designed for the latest Android phones and tablets.

It integrates with your own cloud service as well as its own GCloud. It can send files using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. It can access FTP, SFTP, and FTPS servers, too, and even accept files as a mobile Web or FTP server. … Read more

Whenever I see a social-media expert, I bow.
Little do they know I'm doing it in the hope they don't recognize me. Otherwise, they'll regale me with their latest homilies -- I'm sorry, I mean theories -- about how to get more of, oh, something on social networks.
Social-media experts are today's witch doctors. They promise they have the requisite potion. All you have to do is believe.
The problem for many of them is that they are self-proclaimed experts/gurus/visionaries. Usually because they've bought themselves 10,000 Twitter followers from an Australian … Read more
Sometimes I worry.
I worry that at the bottom of the fiscal cliff is another fiscal cliff.

It's provided by Minister Fortson, aka Dante Fortson, whose Web site claims to offer "a Christian perspective on angels, aliens, demons, giants, nephilim, and other supernatural phenomena." Say what you will (and who doesn't?) the Minister correctly points out that many Bible study programs are expensive rip-offs that charge for access to free Web-based resources. Prophecy Expert certainly enables users to … Read more

Over the past decade, we've heard a lot about the coming consumerization of information technology. Well, it's here. The Web, e-mail, mobile phones, automated teller machines, GPS navigators, supermarket self-checkouts, online banking, digital cameras, instant messaging, chat rooms, online shopping, airline e-tickets, iTunes, YouTube, Facebook--you name it. Every one of them puts large swaths of the population in direct, frequent contact with sophisticated IT systems and interfaces. And this is just the short list.
It's an overstatement to say "everyone's on Facebook" or "everyone has a smartphone"--but not by much. Something like 50 percent of the U.S. population is on Facebook … Read more
