Bring on the potholes. The freeze and thaw of winter inevitably results in a rash of suspension-rattling, tire-popping, bone-jarring craters. But now you can fight back with one more tool - your smartphone. Pothole Alert , from Cab Match L.L.C., is a free application for iPhones and Android devices that is ridiculously simple to use for reporting potholes to local authorities and a website that logs and maps pothole locations. Launched last year in Washington, the app's coverage is now available in parts of 30 states, including some of North Jersey; on state roads throughout Pennsylvania; city streets in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh; and county-maintained roads in Montgomery County.

The idea of introducing yourself to the world with a fantastically ambitious, genre-splicing, sci-fi concept album about a 28th-century android that features guests as disparate as OutKast rapper Big Boi and psychedelic indie rockers Of Montreal might seem weird to some people. But not to Janelle Monae. "That's just part of the Great Divide," says the 24-year-old behind The ArchAndroid , the full-length debut that was inspired by Fritz Lang's 1927 classic futuristic film Metropolis and is easily the most dazzlingly varied platter of pop music to come out in 2010.

It's that time of year again when we make predictable resolutions we will forget by Valentine's Day. (Does anyone even remember what they resolved to do last year?) With the help of technology, it doesn't have to be that way. Perhaps the mobile device we check 100 times daily can hold the answer to making a change in 2014. (Or, maybe our resolution is to stop wasting time checking that device - there's an app for that, too.) Here are 10 common resolutions and some innovative solutions to get us to success.

It's a good thing for CBS that technology hasn't progressed too far in the year 2104. When the network's new space rangers jump through doorways and start firing, their ultra-suave ray-gun-like high-tech blasters still bang away real loud, and bullets ricochet all over the place in those all-steel 2104 spaceships. That should keep the Dukes of Hazzard fans happy. CBS has begun '93 trying to be all things to all people. Its Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, which premiered last week, seeks to combine three genres: medical, Western and family.

SAN FRANCISCO - Google's stock price topped $800 Tuesday for the first time amid renewed confidence in the company's ability to reap higher profits from its dominance of Internet search and prominence in the growing mobile market. The milestone comes more than five years after Google's shares initially hit $700. Not long after breaking that barrier in October 2007, the economy collapsed into the worst recession since World War II and Google's stock tumbled into a prolonged malaise that eventually led to a change in leadership.
