Why You Can No Longer Afford to Ignore Google Plus for Business

Why You Can No Longer Afford to Ignore Google Plus for Business | Technology News | Scoop.it

Consider that Google Plus is the brainchild of the world’s most powerful search engine. So is it really a good idea to ignore Google Plus for business...

 

Despite all the hoopla that surrounded the new social site when it was first released, many businesses are ignoring Google Plus completely in exchange for increased focus on sites like Facebook and Twitter. While 72 of the world’s largest 100 brands have a Google Plus page, nearly 40 percent of them haven’t posted any content on the site. But when you consider that Google Plus is the brainchild of the world’s most powerful search engine, is it really the brightest strategy to ignore Google Plus for business? Even though it might not be a major traffic driver like Pinterest or other social sites, Google Plus has some incredible benefits....

Now that Santa has given you a new, powerful iPad 2 to play with, how will you equip this digital tool to help you through the day?  "Wired" reporter Christina Bonnington offers 15 suggested downloads--total cost:  about $27 for the entire group. Among my favorites are:  Flipboard, Digg, iA Writer, Yahoo Weather, Spotify, Spark, and Pinterest.  Your mileage may differ.  Have fun...I'm jealous. Aloha, Russ.

Dynamically remove Google Form options after they have been selected by someone or reach defined limits

Dynamically remove Google Form options after they have been selected by someone or reach defined limits | Technology News | Scoop.it

You can imagine the scenario, you’ve got a Google Form perhaps setup as a booking form and a select option for picking timeslots. As the slots fill up you’d like the option to be removed. I was surprised not to find an example of this so here is a rough sketch of some code that might do the job.

IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet | The Unbounded Spirit

IBM Solar Collector Magnifies Sun By 2000X – These Could Provide Power To The Entire Planet | The Unbounded Spirit | Technology News | Scoop.it

A team at IBM recently developed what they call a High Concentration Photo Voltaic Thermal (HCPVT) system that is capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns, they are even claiming to be able to concentrate energy safely up to 5,000X, that’s huge.


The process of  trapping the sunlight produces water that can be used to produce filtered drinkable water, or used for other things like air conditioning etc. Scientists envision that the HCPVT system could provide sustainable energy and fresh water to communities all around the world.

 

“Each 1cmX1cm chip can convert 200-250 watts, on average, over a typical eight-hour day in a sunny region.


In the HCPVT system, instead of heating a building, the 90 degree Celsius water will pass through a porous membrane distillation system where it is then vaporized and desalinated.


Such a system could provide 30-40 liters of drinkable water per square meter of receiver area per day, while still generating electricity with a more than 25 percent yield or two kilowatts hours per day.
