AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one.

Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

Twitter and Free Speech

It is a post from Jessica Wagner about Twitter and free speech. When the Internet first started taking prominence in the 1990's, a new vehicle for free speech was built. Starting in the 1980's, billion dollar multi-media companies had started accumulating large papers, television networks, and radio stations. Many people worried that big business would conglomerate and eliminate the free speech which the United States was built on. Because of the amalgamation of media, it became harder for individuals to get their voices heard through the use of mass media.

Creating a website, blog, or posting on a comment forum is now the standard by which to get your voice heard in American. With the super-advanced speed at which social media has entered our lives, it is easier than ever to take information, a thought, or an opinion and spread it throughout the entire country or world.

Recently, there has been a lot of controversy over the use of Twitter and the rights of free speech as they…
