Of all the new content additions to the World of Warcraft introduced by the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, the new Death Knight hero-class is arguably the most prolific. Just about every World of Warcraft player has created a Death Knight just to experience the opening series of class-specific quests. The members of Technologia have certainly embraced the new class.

Since I am from the "old school" of technological innovation, my favorite technology is the personal computer. The ability to access so much computing power at relatively low cost has changed everything we know about the human experience. Sometimes for the better, sometimes not.Personal Quote

When TechRepublic Cracked Open the Apple iPhone 3G we accidently put a small crack in the glass face. After awhile, the small crack became a big one bisecting the entire screen. The staff looked upon that crack as mark of dishonor and we decided fix it and record the process in a Photo Gallery.
This is the 2009 version of my photo scrap book. This is where I publish photos, diagrams, and other imagery for blogs and articles on TechRepublic.
Using a fairly typical USB flash thumb drive, dataSentinel will encrypt your data and store it on at least three different servers. Your data will be sliced into encrypted pieces and stored on numerous servers located in various locations across North America. The most notable thing about this whole process is that, to the user, the transactions looks like copying a file or folder from one location to another. Mark Kaelin took some screenshots.
The holiday season is a big deal here at the TechRepublic Offices -- that is to say we like to celebrate. One way we show our festive spirit is with a Holiday Technology Tree.

It is a site to behold as you can see in this TechRepublic Photo Gallery.

With a almost standard sized keyboard, Intel Atom CPU, and 160GB hard drive, the Aspire One is a netbook that you can actually take on the road and get real work done. TechRepublic took a First Look at this netbook and reviewed it for the Product Spotlight even as we make plans for a Cracking Open gallery in the near future.
For some World of Warcraft players, the launch of the new Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack is a big deal that is to be celebrated. One way to celebrate is with a midnight Launch Event. There were thousands of these events taking place as midnight rolled around across the planet. In San Francisco, one retailer held a street fair at its Powell Street location where around 600 people gathered. Gamespot and CNET News took some photos and we created a TechRepublic Photo Gallery to commemorate.
Members of Technologia are poised to take on the Wrath of the Lich King, the latest expansion pack for the World of Warcraft. Our friends over at GameSpot provided us with a preview.
