An open Internet: It's not just for computers anymore
WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Imagine being able to use your television like a computer, in pretty much the same way smartphones have computing capabilities.

WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Members of the media offered their perspectives on migration in the modern world during the 2014 National Migration Conference in Washington.
