Talking about Ghetto Social Media Communities. Facebook, Twitter & Instagram et all

Matt Drudge, who is the operator of the DrudgeReport, one of the TOP news websites on the planet, reminded me of how the internet was about 20 years ago. He steps out to talk to Alex Jones of InfoWars this past week and it’s one of the most profound interviews I have heard in quite a while.

I was really looking forward to testing out this new version of Office for Mac 2015. Did Microsoft actually catch up with the times and address the extreme bugginess of the software on a Mac?
