Google knows everything. That’s what most people say. You want to know something or stalk someone, Google the term and you’ll see hundreds to thousands of search results. You’ll be surprised at what you’ll learn. If you start searching for symptoms of an illness, more often than not, you get scared because there’s a tendency for you to self-diagnose after reading a lot of websites that are not really reliable.

Leaks show HTC possibly venturing to personal medical devices

There are rumors of HTC competing with GoPro for a mobile camera, and also a much-hyped smartwatch that was deferred to an early 2015 launch. But more surprising is @upleak’s news of the outfit venturing to personal medical devices.

ZocDoc books your checkup on your smartphone

I really hate making doctors appointments. I think that the people that make the appointments at my kids' doctor may well be the least helpful people on Earth. It's so bad that I try to call when they are closed because the answering service is easier to talk to. If you have the same issue with making appointments for your doc or for your kids, ZocDoc for Android promises to help.
