Keep right side up, go to church
Have you noticed how two people may look at the same piece of artwork and yet come away with totally different interpretations of it? The same is true of poetry, music, and fluffy cloud formations.

Sensor may help with getting us to church
And now from the "Do we really need this" department. It seems the sports companies, Adidas and Nike, are coming out with a cell phone coach called MiCoach.

Smartphones need kill switches. It's a relatively easy solution to the pricey (and irritating) problem of smartphone theft.

The cooperative spirit! It makes so much sense!
