Forget science fiction - this is science fact!

Science is one of those weird anomalies in life. It seems that it was one of the things that kids hated most at school and yet, judging by the friends around me now, it seems to have become the thing that they want to learn more about. A Science Explore is an education and knowledge application containing facts and hidden knowledge on scientific subjects of all kinds.   Do you know how Einstein figured out his most famous equation- E=MC²? Or why two eyes give you better vision than one? How about what the famous physicist Galileo's full name is? Come with us on a journey where ...  More

A friend visited me recently and she couldn't wait to show me her latest favorite iPad app. There i was expecting a cool new video application or the follow up to Flipboard but what did she show me?

"Bye, bye email...hello TagMyDoc" goes the byline to this innovative and very useful file sharing app. TagMyDoc could well be the future of document sharing and takes online communication one step further into the 21st Century. While it's taking people a while to come to terms with QR Code technology - and many people I talk to still have no idea what those funny little square boxes are all about - when one wakes up to the idea that they are basically a bar code it's easy to see the possibilities. TapMyDoc is a free app that let's you place a QR Code on your correspondence so that everyone ...  More

Make learning times tables a lot more fun

While no one wants to rob kids of their childhood years there is little doubt that the earlier they start learning the better. And, while many parents spend a lot of time reading to their children and starting them off on the road to learning simple words, it's often math that gets left behind. You only have to look at some of the Asian countries who grasp the math concept far quicker than their western counterparts to see how important it is later on in life. Back in the 'old days' times tables were learned on a rote basis with children remembering tables by endlessly speaking...one two ...  More

A fun and effective way of learning conversational Japanese

They say that if you are going to learn a language then the earlier you start the better. But why is that I wonder? Surely, the brain power of an adult with their learning capacity and drive is going to be able to pick up a language at least as quickly as a little kid. So maybe the learning pattern is not quite right. StudyChat Japanese was developed to incorporate an element of fun into language learning in the same way that kids are taught new words and phrases in another language.  It uses the simple and fun  idea of flash cards to encourage better understanding of the ...  More

Learn all things Linux for amateurs and pros

I have just been reading the Malcolm Gladwell book "Outliers" which talks about the lengths that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs went to in their pursuit to learn all things computer back in the seventies and eighties. They were lucky. These days, the computer is thought of in the same way as the brain, it seems - the rule has been that you don't mess with it. But it's not quite so daunting as it appears. Linux Academy is a cloud-based learning application that offers interactive video courses to discover all you need to know about the Linux operating system and learn how to easily rebuild your ...  More
