    Instagram is one of the most popular social media these days. You are not using your smartphone or tablet enough if you are not using Instagram. Instagram is very popular among those who have iOS, Android and Windows phone. Instagram can be used for both personal and business purposes.

    The best thing about Instagram is that you can make your photos look like professional photos even when these photos were just taken randomly anywhere. With Instagram, you do not need to have good Adobe skills to beautify and edit your photos. You just need the filters that make editing pictures a lot easier than the usual. Just one click and you can already see how a filter can change the aura of the photo

    Marketing a business can be costly when you consider things like the design of a website, the filming and production of video marketing, and print marketing such as flyers, brochures, and newsletters. However, in order to get your brand, products, or services under the eyes of potential customers it’s necessary for success.

    The great news is that as more and more people rely on their smart phones and wireless devices for information about where to eat, where to get a massage or dental check up, or who to depend on for products and services, marketing via smart phone apps has become one of the most effective marketing platforms—not only that, but often times it’s free!

    The following apps provide instant gratification to consumers searching for information on what to buy, which means it’s very effective as far as bringing potential clients through the door of your business…and turning them into repeat customers.

  • How the ‘Google Effect’ changes the brain

    A new study confirms it: [easyazon-link asin=”1416596585″]Google[/easyazon-link] is altering your brain. More precisely, our growing dependence on the Internet has changed how — and what — our brains choose to remember.

    When we know where to find information, we’re less likely to remember it — an amnesia dubbed “The Google Effect” by a team led by psychologist Betsy Sparrow of Columbia University.

    Goodbye, soul-searching; hello, facts-at-fingertips.

    The finding, published in Friday’s issue of the journal Science, doesn’t prove that Google, Yahoo or other search engines are making us dumber, as some have asserted. We’re still capable of remembering things that matter — and are not easily found online, Sparrow said.

    Rather, it suggests that the human memory is reorganizing where it goes for information, adapting to new computing technologies rather than relying purely on rote memory. We’re outsourcing “search” from our brains to our computers.

  • Word on the Web: Learn to Stop Worrying and Love Digital Pirates

    Digital piracy has gained a name of infamy as companies set out to crush a practice that is unloading everything from music to software without paying a dime. Still, while the conventional notion is to fight the practice tooth and nail, some of the most successful cases are those who have embraced it.

    Among the success stories is that of “Minecraft,” the legendary game developed by one man that has sold more than a million copies before it has even reached its final release.

    Markus Alexej Persson, better known as Notch, is the man behind “Minecraft.” Although he sells each copy of the game for around 15 euros, part of his business model is the word-of-mouth promotion of piracy.

  • Syndicated content may benefit your blog

    Syndicated Content – Good or Bad?  Many may have noticed I have been inter-mixing my blog with some related syndicated content. Like the article “A Portable Charger to Revive your Dead Devices and Schools Hope Social Networking is the Answer to Dropouts.”

    What do you think? Love it or hate it?

    There are many reasons why I decided to do so, one is because I want my site to be more of a destination then just me jibber jabbering about whatever. I want it to be a place where people find information on hot tech products and where they can get some helpful tech tips. In addition, get information on entrepreneurship and business. So I thought adding syndicated content would be an asset to provide more information that comes from different sources. Plus it would allow me to update my site more frequently by adding syndicated content on the days I’m less likely to post.

  • Google Gmail Snafu Lesson: Back Up, Back Up, Back Up

    By Ian Paul, PCWorld

    Gmail is hard at work restoring service to about 40,000 Gmail users after a software bug deleted their e-mail messages, folders, labels, and filters. So, while things are looking good for those users affected by the bug, this episode proves, once again, that while Web-based services may be robust, you still have to take responsibility for your own data.

    Google also takes responsibility. Ben Treynor, Google’s VP Engineering and Site Reliability Czar, said on Google’s Gmail blog that Google backs up all Gmail to tape. “Since the tapes are offline, they’re protected from such software bugs,” he blogged. “But restoring data from them also takes longer than transferring your requests to another data center, which is why it’s taken us hours to get the e-mail back instead of milliseconds.”

    Just how serious is your business about the digital channels?

    Any other year, I may have used the words “online channels” instead of “digital channels,” but 2010 tilted the marketing world a whole lot more. We can’t just talk about world-class websites and getting found on the search engines anymore. The pervasiveness of mobile smartphones (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry), tablets (iPad, Samsung, Dell) and the entire app economy that surrounds it is quickly becoming a dominant business force.

  • Gutenberg changed the world. The Internet can do it again

    A medieval gem-cutter once set out to exploit pilgrims viewing holy relics. These relics were so old and fragile -or possibly so phoney -that the faithful could view them only from a distance.

    The plan was to sell pilgrims mirrors that would capture reflections of the relics, thus staying with the observer forever. Plague ended the pilgrimage and the gem-cutter was stuck with product but no market.

    Then, a brainwave. He’d pay off creditors with revenue from a machine he’d devise to copy manuscripts that required armies of monks.

    Johannes Gutenberg’s mechanical printing press produced 3,600 pages in a day where a monk in the scriptorium produced four.

    But people didn’t use Gutenberg’s press to reproduce only religious works. They printed philosophy, fiction, political tracts, experiments, observations, dissents, arguments, plays, poems, financial statements and pornography, history and eyewitness accounts of great events.

    Gutenberg’s invention shattered the power of feudal lords, reconfigured the global economy, and triggered the Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation and the scientific and industrial revolutions.
