Monday, the world learned about a critical bug in OpenSSL called "Heartbleed." It severely compromises the integrity of secure communications and there
It just makes sense to pay attention to this one. Never like to be alarmist, so if you see this, read the article, and make sure you change your passwords. Yeah, it'll be annoying, and you'll have to remember more stuff, but it's far better than having your device/compromised. Always have used Lookout's Android mobile protection, and like that they are quick to provide an app to check your mobile device.
Fin is a Tiny Wearable Device that you can wear on the Thumb of your hand as a ring and it will make your whole Palm,Fingers as Numeric Keypad and Gesture Interface.
The march of the wearable devices continues. This one looks interesting, with a small footprint (thumbprint?), bluetooth connectivity, and a host of uses. Still in funding stage (indiegogo), but one to watch.
The stats shouldn't be surprising, but when all placed organized in one place, it really makes a compelling reason for thinking mobile first from your business perspective. And it's still growing exponentially!
Google Launches 'Chrome Apps' for When the Web Falls Short - Ever since Google and its hardware partners launched the first Chromebooks in 2011, they've argued that a browser-based operating system could be enough to...
Advertising is going to change more in the next 20 years than it has in the last 100. If you need proof of that, just look at the patent Google was granted Thursday for a Google Glass-based ad system.
Dubbed "pay-per-gaze," the content would charge advertisers for the number of times someone literally looked at their ad. The concept is buried pages deep in a patent for a "gaze tracking technique ... implemented with a head-mounted gaze-tracking device that communicates with a server."
Still not sure it's ready for prime time (and I'm very certain that way too many folks believe so without even trying it), but as AR is the future of our interactive environment, it's sure cool to see what it is like and to get a taste of our future.
Crowd Mics turns smartphones into wireless microphones. The audience can be heard over the room's sound system. Also includes text commenting and polling.
Now this is really cool & clever. Being able to use your smartphone in a conference as a wireless lav microphone. No internet connection needed (though you do need a router). It seems like a perfect app for public speakers to know about...as long as they're comfortable hearing from the crowd.
A sample social media event marketing check sheet to help you plan and execute a social strategy around your marketing events.
Really good game plan, especially for people just starting to integrate social media into their events. Now, if people only started to think about social media more as PR and less as marketing...well, that's another conversation for another time. Still, an excellent document to have.
Prijector: The World’s First Conference Room Wireless Presentation Device.
I'm really intrigued by this. Seems like a no-brainer for conferences (as long as the wifi is working) to end the problem of multiple device connecting to LCDs, renting bulky switchers, etc. Tempted to get a pre-order of it and see if the promise meets the potential.
What does putting together Bill Nye, YouTube, and NASA get you? A pretty awesome Friday night, if you ask me. Nye, better known as Bill Nye the Science Guy, is back on the small screen to teach you...
For students of all ages, the Science Guy, Bill Nye, is back, helping to explain why the Jupiter probe is of importance to us all. The fact that he's using YouTube to do so is wonderful. What a great classroom opporutnity for students to learn about this important voyage.
Samsung's rumored smart watch, the Galaxy Gear, will be announced on Sept. 4, according to a report.
Will 2014 become the year of the Wearable technology devices. Interesting that Samsung is coming to market before the availability of Google Glasses. Apple will also be in that mix. We may not gravitate to these devices immediately, but they will be the foundation for other wearable technologies to be better accepted.
