Students: Ditch Google Docs, and use Office Online for your projects for a happier life

Project Work is something very unfortunate that all Junior College students will have to deal with. Last week, a teacher warned her class on the use of Google Docs, speaking of how it would destroy hours of painstaking formatting when converted into a Word document.

LG launches the G3 Beat, a smaller and less powerful G3

Unfortunately for the consumers at large, it seems that all OEMs except for Sony seem to equate a smaller chassis with inferior specs.
