Get your knickers out of a wad, Quora lovers. I’m the failure here. Not Quora. You see, several weeks ago I was hearing more and more about Quora and started a blog post about it. I got a good bit of it written too. And then….well, I don’t really know what happened. I actually wrote my [...]

Posted on December 17th, 2010 by Kris  |  1 Comment »

[UPDATE] Apparently, Yahoo is just looking to sell Delicious not completely shut it down, but I think it’s still a good idea to export your bookmarks and have them saved. I also think, after using Diigo, that I may just stick with that. Yes, I’m that kind of girl.

OK, as many of you know, I got the Droid X a few weeks ago. It was an impulse purchase really, which isn’t like me. I usually make spreadsheets and tables and graphs charting pros and cons and specs and comparisons of major purchases.
