- MOOCs being embraced by US Universities: It seems like Massive Open Online Courses are being embraced as a form of distance learning. I think this will be the next major change in higher ed, especially considering the constant rising cost of college.
- Noted critic on Twitter: “It’s toast. Over. Done. History.”: This seems a bit extreme but he might be right; as younger generations start to use social media they might be looking for something less mainstream, or newer.
- The Best Launcher for Android: It’s Nova Launcher. I use it instead the S4’s default because it looks like stock Android and has a lot of great features. I recommend it.
- Netflix Currently in Negotiation for Another Season of Arrested Development: Yes. Yes. Please.
- Clever Hacks give Google Glass many Unintended Powers: I just picked up Google Glass and love it (review forthcoming). These are some really interesting hacks, and Google seems to be responding quickly.
