Great news for Google users! Now you can edit your images or drawings in Google presentations using shape masks, i.e. crop images in different shapes instead of just a rectangle. This feature will let you produce even more exciting stories.

To stop Google from using details from your Google+ profile in its advertising campaign, you’ll need to head to the Shared Endorsements page on Google+.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, October 20, 2013 6:27 AM

But while Facebook forces all users to participate in “sponsored stories,” Google gives you the opportunity to opt out of its ad program. Minors will be automatically excluded, but you’ll have to manually tell Google to leave your name out of its ads if you’re over 18. Fortunately, it’s easy to do so.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 16, 2012 6:48 AM


Being accepted as a leader, especially if you are new to a leadership role or have been asked to lead a new group of people who do not know of you or your success in previous leadership roles, can be  difficult if you make some very common mistakes in how you approach the leadership role.


The real measure of success in any leadership role, is to have those you lead follow your direction without hesitation, and be willing to go that extra mile when you ask it of them.


This excellent article, suggests that the common mistakes made by leaders that lead to them not being accepted by team members can be avoided, and it outlines five of the most common mistakes and then advises how to avoid them.

Randi Thompson's curator insight, December 16, 2012 9:52 AM

Many of us have become leaders in our worlds.  Even if only to our clients.  We reallly have no choice as it comes with the work we do.  Yet, some people never do get comfortable simply because they do not know what to do.

Smart TVs keep dumbing down our living rooms

Smart TVs keep dumbing down our living rooms | Social MeDia | Scoop.it

The living room's been something like a holy grail for electronics manufacturers for decades. It's the place where we spend hours every day sitting in front of our TVs, passively flipping channels and watching ads. Even as our smartphones and tablets vie for our attention, TV dominates: Americans still spend an average of 4 hours, 38 minutes a day watching the boob tube. Netflix, on the other hand, which is so popular as to command as much as half the US’s internet bandwidth, only commands 11 hours of our attention per month.

 

Set top box creators have come from every angle, vying for a piece of this lucrative pie. Roku, Boxee, Western Digital, Apple, Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, TuneIn — on and on the list goes, companies looking to get onto your TV. But these devices create as many problems as they solve, though, adding new remotes, inputs, and interfaces into a viewing experience that's supposed to be simple.

 

 

Theoretically, that puts TV manufacturers at an enormous advantage: if Samsung can design the whole interface, from Netflix to your DVR, it should be able to create a seamless experience that improves upon the disjointed universe of set-top boxes. Sony or Vizio could overlay content on top of your TV, so you can watch a show while reading tweets about it; Samsung already has a great ESPN app that just runs a ticker below whatever you're watching. Your set-top box can't do that, since it's on its own input and takes over the whole screen. Just about every manufacturer bought into this logic, and over the last couple of years store shelves have flooded with internet-connected, content-streaming "Smart TVs." But each of these companies has tried to develop its own interface, its own style, and every attempt has fallen flat. Smart TV interfaces are almost universally slow, clunky, and unnecessarily complex.
