Jamaica to be Included in World’s Largest Study of Web Impact for First Time

The World Wide Web Foundation, established by Web Inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee, has today unveiled plans for its 2013 Web Index, with Jamaica included for the first time. The Web Index - which will be released on 22 November 2013 - is the world’s first measure of how the Web empowers people and delivers socio-economic impact in countries around the globe. Jamaica’s inclusion will allow its citizens, government and civil society organisations to understand the use and impact of the Web in Jamaica, how it compares to global and regional counterparts, and how best to harness it for future social and economic benefit.

Apple iPad Air’s the World Thinnest Tablet and Apple iPad Mini 2’s a 3DS and Vita killer

This year’s Apple iPad launch held at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco was choc full of innovations under the hood and some great aesthetics typical of the Apple I’ve come to know and love. Apple has changed the name of the Apple iPad 5 to the Apple Air…..a name I thoroughly approve as its truly losing some serious weight. Check out Apple’s Official Press Release on the Launch of the Apple iPad Air and the Apple iPad Mini 2! It Bezel is 43% slimmer and only 7.5mm thick, a 20% reduction that’s truly noticeable and thus deserving of the new name. Weighing in at 469 gm (478 for the 4G LTE/Wi-Fi version) it's basically the lightest 9.7" Tablet in the World. I hereby crown the Apple iPad King of Tablets at this point! It’s also packing a few expected improvements borrowed from the Ap...
