Tech Pop Quiz

Posted in entrepreneurship by Steve Sammartino on April 13, 2012

Friday fun has been turned into a Tech Pop Quiz. So here is 20 questions on just that – all of which you could find very quickly on-line, but rather than cheat, why not answer them without checking and see how many  you really know.

Leave the answers in the comments section and who ever gets the most will win one of these which I will send via mail to you personally.

Good Luck.
