Back in 2004 when Google went public, Microsoft felt the sting of a younger competitor. Now Google itself is feeling that sting, facing competition from Facebook. Among the social network’s efforts to lure users from Google, Facebook is now pushing it’s @facebook.com email platform (a major play against Gmail, if you ask me). I noticed today, a quietly rolled out Facebook feature which lets Facebook users forward their Facebook messages. You can forward those messages to other Facebook users, but more importantly, you can forward them to any outside email address. And who is the return address? Your @facbook.com default email, of course.
Entrepreneurial lifestyles have become a meme. However, don’t be fooled –every entrepreneur isn’t on the fast track to success. Even those who eventually do find success, they’ve made their fair share of mistakes along the way. Losing capital and wasted development time is common among young as well as mature entrepreneurs. Moreover, many entrepreneurs even get ripped off by their ‘trusted’ consultants.
Apple goes green! Apple has wisely decided to comply with the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) guidelines despite its growing problems with the regulation in the past. Apple’s earlier decision to take its products off EPEAT seemed to be a mistake, as the company failed to recognize the potential sales and goodwill it could lose as a result of that decision.
We’ve all used machine translators at one point or another. They’re fast, free, and simple to use. However, the quality of the results are oftentimes not quite up to par. There are even websites devoted to the completely off the wall results that can come from using a machine translator. No matter how great machine translators are at providing a fast and easy solution for translation, the truth of the matter is that machines are not able to process all of the intricacies, variables, and creativity of human language accurately.
I wrote last week about life without the internet and what it would be like if it were to go down for 24 hours. In an ironic twist, the FBI warns of a real malware threat that may result in widespread Internet outages this coming Monday, July 9th.
