Google Doodle Celebrates the Coming of Spring
Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the equinox and the coming of spring in Earth’s northern hemisphere, both of which occur today, March 20.
The equinox is an event that occurs twice a year, when the sun crosses the celestial equator, and the day and night are approximately equal in length.
It is traditionally connected with the coming of Spring in many different cultures, usually marked by harvest festivals falling on or near the same date.
To mark the coming of spring, today’s flowery Google Doodle has been designed by Finnish clothing design company Marimekko…
Does the New iPad Run Too Hot? [POLL]
It’s inevitable. A few days after Apple releases a new product, reports and complaints surface that something’s amiss.
Sometimes these problems are legitimate. When Apple released the iPhone 4 in 2010, it soon emerged that a design flaw related to the device’s antenna resulted in more dropped calls. But often there’s nothing to the complaints. Remember the iPhone 4S’s “Yellowgate” issue for instance?

Why Does My Internet Connection Take A Daily Afternoon Siesta?
Three hours. That’s how long Nate’s Internet connection goes out for, every day except Saturday. He has no idea why. His Internet service provider, Charter, has no idea why. All Charter is able to do is send technician after technician to check out the problem, replace hardware, and ultimately not solve the problem.
Since August of 2011 I have had 7 technicians in my house to fix my internet with Charter. I have literally had every piece of cable, hardware, modem, line, and pole replaced from outside my house into my living room…

New Site Turns Friends’ Social Media Posts Into a Personalized Travel Guide
As you watch via social media as your friends travel the world, a new site called Tripbirds turns their Instagram, Foursquare and Facebook posts into a guidebook that can help you plan your own trip.
The site, which launched after a month in private beta on Tuesday, lets users search their friends’ social media activity based on destination and add items to city-specific “to-do” lists.
Instead of relying on friends to create content on a travel-specific site, Tripbirds instead organizes the geotagged content friends are already creating on other platforms in a way that makes it useful for planning a trip…

They can tell who’s in the room, understand spoken commands, and be controlled with gestures. That’s great news for those of us who can never find the remote, but made our friends over at HD Guru wonder: is there anyone behind that camera watching us back?
Having an always-connected camera in your home that periodically checks in with Samsung’s cloud servers raises all kinds of scary and slightly creepy questions…
