    Google Apps for Work vs Google Docs/Drive

    R.I.P. Don Bryant

    Bryant, who passed last week at age 73, served as bullpen coach for the Sox from 1974-76, helping oversee the staff that reached the '75 World Series.

    Lots of stuff to come over the next two weeks from our bleary-eyed but gleeful correspondents.

    Adobe AIR - Do I need it?

    Just got this pop-up on my new Lenovo x140e:     I'm trying to cut back on useless memory-resident crap, but I have no idea how essential/beneficial this is or how much of a hog it might be. I've never gotten any notices about this on my previous computers.   Yea or Nay?   EDIT - Running Win 7...

    Lessons in a Football Life
