Once upon a time, perhaps in high school or college or both, you had a very special sweetheart. Maybe two. Possibly eight. Whatever. At the time, you were madly in love with each of them.

The company might create a monster out of Graph Search, but the pieces aren't yet in place to start calling winners. Remember that when reading about Facebook killing Google, or Foursquare killing Yelp, or anyone killing Apple. There's always more to those link bait headlines.

Just as we look forward to the next compelling "Star Trek" movie and new adventures in outer space, a new frontier is emerging: inner space. IBM scientists have turned the problem on itself, tackling one of the world's largest big data challenges in the smallest way -- one atom at a time. In fact, the folks at Guinness World Records have certified the movie as the "World's Smallest Stop-Motion Film."
Will the next Richard Stallman, Linus Torvalds or Jimmy Wales please step forward? Because I don't want information at my fingertips -- I want action at my fingertips, and I mean my fingertips.
There's an old saying that "knowledge is power." However, long before anyone had written up a job description for an "intellectual property" lawyer, people were battling over who should and should not have access to knowledge.
I confess to being skeptical about Google Glass, the much-hyped, mobile computer eyewear from a company so big its name is also a verb. I figured the ...
