It can be serious when needed: “Digital Trends believes that the ubiquitous integration of technology into our everyday lives is both immensely empowering and often confounding, and we resolve to help our audience make informed decisions that allow them to maximize its potential.”
The other thing it does that I want to learn for jeadigitalmedia.org, is everytime a quote is copied and pasted into another site, the following automatically appears. Brilliant!
