Is Oakland an attractive spot for new technology? Yes, I'm talking about this Oakland. Well, to many it might seem like a bad idea, mostly due to the fact that the city reports one of the highest crime rates year-after-year, stigmatizing the city as one of the more unsafe cities in the state. But new evidence suggests that Oakland is in turnaround. And we've plotted out the four best reasons why.
Father’s Day is undoubtedly the best time of the year to show dad just how much you care. But with so many gift ideas available, it’s hard to pick out just the right one amongst all the clutter. Fortunately, we’ve done the busy work for you. So let's take a look at what toys Dad might enjoy on his special day.
Mother’s Day is the best time of the year to show Mom just how much you love and appreciate her. But finding a perfect gift can be challenging. Fortunately, we’ve selected a few gifts that can both speak to her own unique personality and offer some practicality when it comes to enjoying her life.

Smart cars are the perfect design for the city. They’re small (8.8 feet in length), ecologically friendly, and can significantly reduce your parking time. And yes, you can even look damn cool in one.
So when local San Francisco advertising firm Hub Strategy came to us earlier this month to announce the launch of smart spots, an app that finds tiny smart car parking spots, we wanted to learn more.
The 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was supposed to be the year of high-profile wearable technology. Instead, we got new apps, curved TVs and one odd meltdown from action film director Michael Bay. But fortunately, there were plenty of upshots from the annual trade show to pamper us for years to come.
Waiting in line to meet Santa Claus can be an overwhelming event. The nervous sweating, the obnoxious temper tantrums and the uncontrollable crying are all an implicit part of your experience. And most of that's just you.
