Genealogy's Star: Revisiting Personal Ancestral File (PAF) and the issue of local genealogy programs I recently installed Version 184.108.40.206 of Personal Ancestral File (PAF) on my Windows 8 computer. The program seems to run just fine. This is sort-of like finding a living dinosaur in your backyard with a program that was last updated in 2002. The program is also still available for download. PAF seems like one of those old B (or C or D) movies of the living dead. In the past, I have been more or less either exasperated with PAF or openly hostile. This issue is even more complicated when you realize the huge numbers of people who have family trees on Ancestry.com, MyHeritage.com, Geni.com and similar websites. When I find a person who has entered all of their genealogical data into an online family tree, I usually suggest the need for a local program. When I say "media," I mean any digitized file of a document, photograph, audio recording or video recording. Presently, several commercial programs have varying degrees of connection to FamilySearch's old product, New.FamilySearch.org.
The Textbooks Of Tomorrow [INFOGRAPHIC] As someone who has just bought an iPad, I can personally appreciate its potential to become the dominant force in the digital book wars. PDF and ePub files can be uploaded instantly, and then annotated with your stylus pen or finger.

According to this infographic by OnlineEducation.net, 1 in 4 students would prefer digital books so much that they would give up sex for a month in order to get them. Now there’s some dedicated fans for you. One figure I am not entirely convinced about is the assertion that digital books are on average 53% cheaper than print books. What do you think?
