The Internet is a global network connecting millions of computers. Now imagine having unlimited (depending on your location) access to free, uninterrupted, step by step instruction on how to go about learning, resolving or solving that issue you have. Now that’s what we call a VIRTUAL CLASSROOM!
A classroom according to Wikipedia is a room in which teaching or learning activities can take place. Classrooms are found in educational institutions of all kinds, including public and private schools, home schools, corporations, and religious and humanitarian organizations. The classroom attempts to provide a safe space where learning can take place uninterrupted by other distractions. (more…)

Not to be outdone by the many VOIP services; more recently BBM with Voice, Facebook (in Canada) today began testing (you guessed it,) voice calls from within its Messenger app on the iOS platform. Apparently, not content with your data, Facebook also wants to hear your voice.

Google Music (now officially known as Play Music) is an incredible product. Google allows you to upload your personal music collection to their servers and stream it from your web browser or any Android device absolutely free! The only bummer is that Google has overlooked an important feature: the ability to upload music purchased outside of the Google Play Store to your Google Music account from your smartphone. Naturally, Google is trying to push users to purchase their music from Google Play, but what if you want to buy your music from the Amazon MP3 store, or download it using some other quasi-legal method (shame, shame).
