October 8, 2012 |

Considering the wall on Facebook, for example, is such a rapidly changing, visual medium from minute to minute, unique and thought-provoking images are absolutely key to make users stop, take a breath and really absorb what is going on. It’s more or less the same strategy sharp advertisers have been using in magazine advertising wells or on television commercial breaks — come up with an attractive, timely or thought-provoking image that gets people’s attention. Once this occurs, a brand has suddenly been granted a chance to sell their message, service or product. What exactly that image may be is up to marketing and advertising experts, a multi-billion dollar industry that pumps out creative theories and campaigns based upon what will and won’t sell.

October 8, 2012 |

A con for ultrabooks is that batteries are encased and therefore not changeable, while standard PC batteries may be removed and refreshed.

Screen quality

Laptop screen range anywhere from 13 to 18 inches, with wider screens typically leading to a heavier laptop body. Ultrabooks go as low as 11.6 inches and top out at about 16 inches. Screen … Read More

Now Entering the Internet Radio Ring: The 500 Pound Gorilla Called Apple

October 1, 2012 |

Internet radio means you can stream the music you want to hear, and change genres with a swipe.
