DNA, Data, and Dollars I am adopted and thus I have often thought of doing a DNA test.  I really do not know much about my ethnicity, but every time the commercial is on television or the radio, this thought passes through my head; should I buy a DNA kit?  If so, which one...

 Connected in the Cloud     Have you heard of the Cloud? I am sure you have; it is impossible to be engaged with technology and not have heard the term the Cloud.  Just to be clear, the Cloud is not actually in the heavens, the terms origins are unknown, but its meaning is...
