As the old saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words” and nothing may be more true when it comes to social marketing campaigns. 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. Some of these theories are right and …
Yes, you heard correctly: Apple is entering the Internet radio game. Companies such as Pandora, Last.fm and iHeartRadio will soon be competing with the company that brought you the iPod and the iTunes store. The deal is still under wraps, since Apple is still negotiating with record companies for music rights, but, according to inside sources, it’s all but a done deal. This should be good news to iPhone and iPad users.
Why Apple is entering a relatively small and crowded Internet radio market doesn’t make a whole lot of sense on the surface, but when you ponder it for a moment, you can almost see a legitimate case for it. Internet radio means you can stream the music you want to hear, and change genres with a swipe. It’s different than having to create a different playlist to suit your mood or desired listening choices. And what if you suddenly have a hankering …
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 reboot is great, but doesn’t quite match the original
Samsung is one of the few manufactures who is actually able to challenge Apple at the top of the tablet market, however its latest effort doesn’t quite hit the heights of its predecessor, although at less than $400 the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is priced accordingly, And, its Samsung’s top tab at the moment.
You’d be right to think that the Galaxy Tab 2 would build on the specs of its 10.1-inch brother, but you’ll still find a dual-core CPU, a 3.15-megapxiel rear camera and a 7,000 mAh battery under the hood.
The Galaxy Tab 2 is a slightly more budget-friendly slate, and Samsung has saved itself money with the uninspiring grey plastic case, VGA quality front facing camera and added weight – which defiantly makes the tablet feel cheaper in the hand and less pleasing on the eye.
The dual-core …
If you are not into technology in 2012, you are likely a step or two behind the crowd.
Whether it is starting your own website through an online vehicle such as webstarts.com to staying connected to the latest in phone offerings, technology plays a large part in just about all our lives.
Whenever a new technology product is about to hit the stores, the fever pitch of publicity gets turned up a notch or two.
That certainly has been the case for a while now, as consumers await the new iPhone5, reportedly due out in early September.
Reports indicate that iLab, an iPhone repair shop in Japan recently got its hands on images of the iPhone 5. The shop’s leaked iPhone 5 pictures and video provide the public with a look at the reported two-tone metal case, bigger screen, smaller dock connector, new speaker grill, and housing.
One business publication has already gone on record …
As powerful and pervasive as smartphones like the Google Droid Nexus One and the iPhone seem to be, believe it or not, Americans overall still prefer their predecessor feature phones. While the popularity of smartphones is definitely on the rise, more U.S. users still have feature phones in their hands than smartphones. Some examples of popular feature phones include the Sony Ericsson Elm, the Verizon LG Cosmos, Accolade and enV Touch and the Samsung Monte.
With all the hype and accolades circulating for smartphones, how can this be? How is it that people are still choosing the previous generation of phones instead of the loaded, cutting-edge smartphones?
The reasons for this seem to boil down to cost and simplicity. At this time, feature phones are still cheaper than smartphones, sometimes significantly so. Although the smartphones do, indeed, come loaded with features as well as the capacity for even more features, this can be intimidating to …
The Google and Apple war has been raging for a while now. And both tech heavyweights have been in the limelight of late due to their persistent involvement in android spyware or iPhone spy like behavior. It all seems a little bizarre but it appears as though Apple has managed to snag military style planes that go around taking pictures of everything they fly over. The military style cameras are used to capture the images that help build 3D Map system for the all Apple iOS machines.
Google of course takes the cake with multiple offences, the most recent one involved Google gathering data through open Wi-Fi networks that it’s Google Maps cars came across and ended with a $25,000 FCC fine. But it seems that Apple now wants to join ranks in terms of invading people’s privacy with their newest efforts to knock Google Maps out of the picture.
The maps are going to …
Two massive retailers on the mobile market today are both Blackberry and Apple. Apple offers a touchscreen slim line phone that has a variety of high-end applications and state of the art features as well as a stylish look and an aesthetically pleasing casing.
The Blackberry on the other hand offers a handset that is also extremely modern however it is a little more on the business side in appearance in comparison to the iPhone; it also has one major difference. This difference is a full QWERTY keyboard, which allows users with access to the best of both worlds. A touch screen display and a slide out keyboard are both accessible on this particular model, so when the user finds that it is easier to type a longer length email or message on a keypad rather than just the screen itself, then this is also possible.
In regards to software, this is where each …
Pollutants exist everywhere. Indoor and outdoor air quality are affected by the release of dangerous chemicals and heavy metals into the air, which are also present in the food and water you consume. Rather than risking your health, learn about pollutants and employ techniques that limit their damaging effects on everyday life.
- Indoor pollutants include dust, cleaning supply fumes, pet dander, mold spores and secondhand smoke. Filtering the air by using furnace and air conditioning filters can drastically improve indoor air and prevent allergic reactions or asthma attacks. HEPA filters trap dust and dirt and prevent these pollutants from being released into the air during vacuuming.
- Control indoor air quality by limiting chemical use. Cleaning supplies contain dangerous chemicals and fumes that aggravate sinuses and asthma symptoms. Natural ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, cornstarch and lemon juice are excellent for cleaning the home without damaging your physical health. Properly dispose of containers …
Moving your business is something that takes careful planning and strategic organization. Your company depends on a smooth move, so you likely spent hours researching movers and developing a moving strategy. Yet, when it comes to transporting the tech in your office you need to consider the following:
- How will you keep the data on those computers secure?
- How will you prevent damage as you prepare to move?
- How can you ensure everything is set up and ready to go when you open your doors at your new location?
Purchase Appropriate Insurance
When moving tech, look closely at the insurance the moving company offers. If it is a per-pound insurance option, which is quite common, you may need additional insurance. Technology is worth far more than what it would get at a few cents per pound. You can purchase additional insurance to cover your technological investments through your insurance provider or from the moving company.
