Steve Rosenbaum | April 19, 2015 | Technology
It's a sexy premise, and the images on the screen are compelling. But after giving the film more than a fair chance, I have to say -- the actually plot and storyline made no narrative sense to me.

Now narrow the focus down to a single activity, parcel transport for online purchases.

Jenny Triplett | April 17, 2015 | Weddings
Currently halfway into my 25th year of marriage, I keep hearing about how it is something of the past; marriage that is. I keep hearing that people are just shacking up these days and not making things legal.

Brian McNicoll | April 17, 2015 | Technology
With changes in technology, some believe its time to start burying the AM/FM radio. There is a move afoot to replace radios in cars with apps that permit access to satellite, streaming and other broadcast services but do not provide access to the local AM/FM offerings.

Am I Really Blind? Adapting to Adaptive Technology

Belo Cipriani | April 16, 2015 | Healthy Living
It isn't just movies contributing to a false perception of disability, but also the lack of disabled faces in popular culture at large. Maybe someday there will be a hip show with a funny, romantic or even slutty disabled protagonist. But, until then, I'll just keep flashing my tech toys around.

On This Day -- An Open Letter to Facebook

Daniela Tempesta, LCSW | April 15, 2015 | Technology
I imagine you thought it would be fun for people to see what they were up to one year ago today and perhaps even insightful to have the chance to reflect on how they have grown or changed over the past year. However, I fear that in the development of this feature you neglected to think about its impact on one particular group of people -- those who have experienced significant loss in their lives.
