People All Over the World, Join Paper

Sometimes you want to keep a pile of paper sheets together. And sometimes you can’t help but wonder why stapling a few sheets together is so hard.

We’re on the verge of 2021. Sci-Fi films had us driving flying cars by now. Unfortunately, we’re not quite there yet. That does not mean we have not progressed. Smart homes used to be a rare thing. You’d hear about them only in shows following the lives of the rich and famous. This is noContinue reading “Good Morning, Home!”
