Linkedin is the largest professional network for business professionals. People visit Linkedin with purpose to get connected with people. The most important thing is to keep your Linkedin profile updated.
The holidays are a dangerous time. It'd be nice if the season of cheer was all happiness and joy but, unfortunately, there are malicious people out there who will capitalize on your good spirits to scam you out of a lot of money.
Did you know that besides the obvious productivity apps and fun games, the iOS App Store features a large amount of applications tailor-made for high school students?
Techno Geek silhoutte's insight:
Everyone’s favorite smartphones and tablets can be used for more than just fueling your addiction to Candy Crush and Angry Birds.
August is here, and for most high school students, that means summer vacation is rapidly coming to a close. Sadly, it’s time to stop thinking purely of fun and start getting ready to focus on education. High school is arguably one of the most important parts of a student’s educational career, as it will likely determine where, and if, they continue on to higher education.
With that in mind, any edge a student can get is critical, and that is where these incredibly useful applications can be truly amazing.
Don't get too excited though. It's very likely the iWatch won't launch until later in 2014 at the very earliest. But that hasn't kept some designers from churning out a bunch of concept designs. The latest design comes to us from Federico Ciccarese, a designer who has come up with some great Apple gadget mockups in the past.
Meanwhile, Apple's biggest rival Samsung is going to announce its own smartwatch on September 4. That gizmo will be called the Galaxy Gear and will pair with your Samsung phone.
In just six weeks LinkedIn developed and launched its Influencer platform, granting anyone and everyone access to essays, opinion pieces and commentary from an impressive roster of bloggers. These include Barack Obama, Bill Gates, LinkedIn’s own CEO Jeff Weiner and Adam Lashinky, senior editor at large for Fortune Magazine.
LinkedIn has had a transformative effect on the world of recruitment, with its Talent Solutions now representing more than half of its overall revenue. But could it now be looking at print journalism with a critical eye?
Opinionated columnists and bloggers are key to driving traffic to websites and boosting print circulation. It’s how the New York Times and the Times of London justify their paywalls – as a reader you will be granted unrivaled access to leading commentary on the biggest news stories.
But what happens when you can read the opinions of high-profile bloggers elsewhere for free? The debate over paywalls lasted years as the journalism industry struggled to come to terms with the power of the internet. In just six weeks LinkedIn developed and launched its Influencer platform, granting anyone and everyone access to essays, opinion pieces and commentary from an impressive roster of bloggers. These include Barack Obama, Bill Gates, LinkedIn’s own CEO Jeff Weiner and Adam Lashinky, senior editor at large for Fortune Magazine. And then there’s Richard Branson, who has artfully played out his career in a series of publicity stunts cunningly timed to coincide with new business ventures (breaking world records for crossing the Atlantic by boat, hot air balloon adventures, dressing up as an air hostess). Branson has 2.2 million followers on LinkedIn and his most popular article (“Things I Carry: A Smartphone? I Prefer A Brilliant Assistant”) has been read 652,889 times and liked by 4,172 people. For some perspective, the Wall Street Journal’s average daily circulation, including digital hits, is 2.38 million – according to the Alliance for Audited Media. The New York Times averages 1.87 million per day.
The Android 4.3 update is now available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and GALAXY Nexus, also the Android 4.3 Factory Image Download is available
Techno Geek silhoutte's insight:
Gestern Abend wurde ja nun endlich offiziell Android 4.3 vorgestellt. Das Warten hat nun ein Ende. Und man muss sagen, Google hat sich mal wieder richtig beeilt. Denn ab sofort steht Android 4.3 als Update für das Nexus 4, das Nexus 7, das Nexus 10 und auch das GALAXY Nexus bereit. Dieses mal ging es wirklich schnell, denn normalerweise lassen sich die Kalifornier damit immer bis zu einer Woche Zeit. Damit dürfte dann bald auch die User in Deutschland Android 4.3 auf ihrem Nexus vorfinden.
Bei Android 4.3 wurde unter vor allem unter der Haube ordentlich geschraubt. Denn die Nexus Devices sollen unter Android 4.3 noch einmal deutlich schneller sein. Und vor allem die doch oft kritisierte Akkulaufzeit unter Android 4.2 wurde wohl deutlich verbessert. Aber um das genau festzustellen, benötigt es noch ausgiebiger Tests von Android 4.3 auf den verschiedenen Geräten. Diese werden aber in den nächsten Tagen folgen.

We now know the release date, price, and specs of the Sony PlayStation 4. Read our updated hands-on first take for everything you need to know about the console, including a comparison to the Xbox One.
Techno Geek silhoutte's insight:
The PlayStation 4 is almost here.
Sony's next-gen gaming console will hit stores in the US on November 15 at a price of $399. That price undercuts Microsoft's Xbox One -- also arriving in November -- by $100.
The US launch will be followed by a European release on November 29. The console will cost £349 in the UK, and 399 euros on the Continent.
Along with the console, Sony has also confirmed a large list of PS4 games due to be released before the end of the year.
If you thought that Nokia was going to sit quietly after the Lumia 1020 announcement, you were wrong. Remember, when we reported Nokia’s product road-map for the rest of the year. It included Dual SIM Lumia smartphones with Nokia tablet and a phablet. The report said that Nokia is planning to launch a new device every month from August onwards. We don’t know what exactly this means because; we simply can’t have a brand new Lumia smartphone or a feature phone from Nokia every month. It just won’t make any sense but, what it could really mean is more accessories to go with. Having said that, Nokia is sending invites for an event, scheduled for August 28 in Moscow, Russia.
So, will it be a new device? Could it be a Nokia tablet? We doubt that. Nokia Lumia tablet or a Full HD phablet will have to wait until Microsoft brings the GDR3 update for Windows Phone operating system. The update will allow manufacturers to come up with better processors (Quad-Cores rumoured) and 1080p Full HD support. It could just be another feature phone from Nokia at the Moscow event.
Nokia is indeed working on a phablet. The rumour-factory is after this for some time now and now, there’s a strong report from The Verge that says the Nokia phablet is codenamed ‘Bandit’ and, it will pack a 6-inch display with Full HD 1080p support. Furthermore, Bandit is going to be the first Windows Phone device that will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. No word on which Snappy it will house.
The other interesting thing about Nokia’s Bandit or Lumia phablet is its rumour about 20MP shooter. If correct, this should be a powerful phablet from Nokia, it will have Windows GDR3 update for WP8, 6-inch Full HD display, quad-core chip and 20MP camera.
It still has a few months to go. A possible November unveiling is much more likely. The device is said to be in testing phase for AT&T.
When we talk about mobile and mobile apps, we often lump tablets and smartphones in together. But while they both use apps from the same store, tablets often fill a different niche than smartphones, and great apps for phones aren't always great apps for tablets.
I used a Nexus 7 tablet for my Android tablet testing (including most of the apps listed here), and I'm often disappointed when a developer doesn't include at least a modified layout for when their app is used on a tablet. Not only does it just not feel special, it ignores that tablets serve a different purpose than phones.
Think about it: your phone is on your person all the time; it's there for fast responses and notifications. It's there to keep you connected to a fast moving world, and to waste small chunks of time. The apps for smartphones that do well don't overstay their welcome, and make the most of smaller screens.
Tablets on the other hand aren't always within reach—yours might be in your bag, or on your nightstand. They aren't as portable, but they make up for it with spacious screens and (sometimes) faster processors. These are the devices that are made to connect us to visual media—eBooks, articles, and images. These are also devices we're expected to spend more time with, not just quick breaks or subway commutes.
What's more, developers don't always have tablets in mind when they create their applications, and sometimes the feel of an app can get lost in translation. Developers have to make certain assumptions about screen size and hand position when they create their apps; assumptions that might not prove accurate on a tablet.
Nokia Lumia 625 features a 4.7-inch WVGA display with scratch resistant Gorilla Glass 2. It packs a resolution of 480x800 pixels at a pixel density of 201ppi. The display allows sunlight readability, high brightness mode. It has colour enhancement plus, the all important super sensitive touch (can be operated with nails and while wearing gloves). The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 512MB RAM. For storage, it provides 8GB of internal memory, which can be expanded externally up to 64GB via microSD card slot. It runs Windows Phone 8 operating system.
The rear gets a 5MP autofocus (with two-stage capture key) camera with LED flash. The camera should work more than fine for the photographer inside you, thanks to the Nokia Smart camera and Cinemagraph. It can record 1080p videos at 30 frames per second. The front houses a VGA camera.
Although, it is good to watch Nokia coming up with big displays for non flagship devices, the 4.7-inch display would have been fantastic for Nokia Lumia 1020. The Windows Phone GDR 3 update should allow manufacturers to bring even bigger displays, the 5-inch phablet types with Full HD resolutions and quad-core processors. So, yay!
