Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Trends on Tuesday 25 June 2013

Just the other day I was struggling with the task of explaining what a meme is to my mom. ‘It’s a little inside joke found on the internet, created for the internet, about the internet. It’s a picture with a funny punchline. It’s a picture of a cat or Ryan Gosling. I don’t know. You’ll know one when you see one’.

By Annie Churdar in Cool Websites on Monday 17 June 2013

It seems the only people embracing Google Glass are white males. So someone started a Tumblr with a steady stream of images of all the nerdy, white men wearing them.

Google Broken Image icon is everywhere

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in New Trends on Thursday 18 April 2013

It’s everywhere. We’ve all seen it before. It’s absolutely infuriating if we’re being completely honest. That stupid “broken image” icon always pops up when my Internet is too weak to load a full page from Google. Hey, but what if Google helped give the iconic image a more positive connotation? What if it were used everywhere? […]
