All of the included folders can then be accessed in one uniformed location. This methodology displaces the older and rigid folder structure, which made it difficult to index files that were scattered throughout your drives.

The Top 10 Psychology Studies of 2010 The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I'm thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year. I've focused on studies that I personally feel stand out, not only as examples of great science, but even more importantly, as examples of how the science of psychology can improve our lives.

Even though the mouse is a great tool for navigating our computer’s user interface, it’s quite old fashioned and the source of many different muscle injuries around the world. So what will we be using instead? Well, it’s not that much different really. However, it’s way more comfortable and will ultimately create a more relaxed and straight forward working posture. By using an infrared laser and an infrared camera, the movement of the hand gestures are tracked and recorded then converted into the mouse’s movement on the screen.
