Originally, mobile phones were the size, shape and heft of your average brick. People would walk down the street yelling, "Guess where I'm calling from!" into the mouthpiece. Now we have "smartphones. " Ironically, it's the user who has to be smart to understand all those apps (I think "apps" is short for "appetizers") or you can get an 8-year-old explain it to you. They miniaturized smartphones into video wrist-phones; then enlarged them again so people could watch movies. I wondered why anyone would watch a two-hour movie on a cellphone - until I spent an afternoon at the DMV. Now I get it. Yet, with all these advances, no one has figured out how to make calling customer service painless.

It's official: Baltimore's new football stadium will be called PSINet Stadium. The Northern Virginia-based Internet service provider and the Ravens completed a deal on Friday that will make the company a "presenting sponsor," deeply involved in many aspects of the team's public face, according to a source familiar with the negotiations who spoke on the condition of anonymity. Look for a new, jazzy Ravens World Wide Web site on the Internet and prominent lettering on the brick stadium.

Letter to The Aegis | May 6, 2014
In the discussions about the status of Harford County's fire and ambulance service, it will be vital to keep in mind that many aspects of the existing system are exemplary. A case in point is the effort two Saturdays ago on the part of members of Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company that resulted in the installation of 123 new smoke alarms in Edgewood's Edgewater Village neighborhood at a rough cost to taxpayers of $2,000. During a two-hour period, 36 fire company members visited 234 homes and found 123 in need of smoke alarms.

I read the article about the Oliver neighborhood with great hope and jubilation ("Blitz of help set in Oliver," March 13). I applaud Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and her team for their efforts in trying to resuscitate this community by using a holistic approach. I particularly like the integration of law enforcement and drug treatment but with some words of caution. National statistics tell us there is very high prevalence of co-occurring substance use and mental disorders specifically among minorities.

Earlier this year, I purchased a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion (6640C) computer. From the day it was up and running, it has sporadically turned itself on! The only consistency is the time: usually between 5:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. Since my home office resides in my bedroom, the early morning wake-up call has begun to bother me. I wondered if there was a light sensor or some kind of timer installed, but HP has no idea why this happens; they referred me to user groups for an answer. No other user seems to know why my machine does this.

Facebook and Maryland's school systems will pilot an initiative next year that should help make it easier to have offensive or hurtful language on the social media site taken down. The effort to combat cyber bullying was started by Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler, who announced the new initiative, called the Educator Escalation Channel, at a meeting Thursday with school district superintendents. Under the initiative, Facebook will help educate school systems on better ways to combat cyber bullying and give them a channel to the social media giant to report offensive behavior.

Many Maryland businesses rely on a payroll service provider to handle their tax withholdings, but they still need to make sure the Internal Revenue Service gets its due. That fact became evident in recent days, following allegations that a Bel Air payroll company had failed to forward clients' tax payments to the federal government. The company - AccuPay - is under police investigation and being sued by several clients. States, including Maryland, generally don't license payroll service providers or require them to be bonded.

Editor: We of the SPIN family regret to inform you that we have received distressing news. Two homeless members of the Aberdeen community, George "Will" Woodrow and Tameka Hooker, died during the night. Their deaths are directly due to lack of adequate shelter providing protection against the bitter cold winter night. While their deaths are tragic, it is our hope that perhaps their passing will bring to light the stark reality regarding the homeless right here in our own backyard.

On the longest night of the year, a crowd of about 200 gathered at the Baltimore Inner Harbor Amphitheater. They stood before a display of well worn shoes, most of which held a flickering votive candle. Each shoe was tagged with a name of one of the 111 people who had died homeless in the city this year. "Each of these shoes will no longer be worn," said Robin Henry, a social work intern with Health Care for the Homeless. "I hope people can just pause here for a minute to remember those who died without secure housing.
