SEO myths to avoid in 2015
Business 2 Community
Search engine optimization has been around just about as long as search engines themselves. That makes it one of the OGs of the internet, but it also means that there are a lot of crackpot theories about how to do it, where to do it, and why to do it.

Internet Explorer will soon be overshadowed by Microsoft's new browser
Global News
Look out, Internet Explorer. After 20 years of competing against rival web browsers, Microsoft is gearing up to launch its own alternative to its once-dominant Internet surfing program. Microsoft has built a new web browser designed for the modern web and mobile devices to go with its new Windows 10 operating system that's coming later this year.

Why the Apple Watch will put the web out to pasture once and for all
Quartz
The web is fading. Not long ago, those were fighting words. In 2010, when WIRED ran a cover story burying the web (while praising the internet), David Pogue, then technology columnist for the New York Times, called it "irresponsible" and "total poppycock."
