08/03/2011, When it comes to college students, it is fair to say that the media hardly portrays them to be bookworms. No sir, take any protagonist in a movie setting, and chances are he will be saving the world from evil transforming robots, or perhaps having the time of their lives by partying and getting to know the opposite sex. It can also be said that video and computer gaming is […]

08/03/2011, A little over a month ago we reported on the Sony Vaio Z which was a notebook that was supposed to give Apple’s MacBook Air a run for its money.
