The Facebook wedding of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan raises eyebrows, with curious timing.

Last week, Facebook CEO married his long time girlfriend –but everyone knows that already. The curious timing is that he married her after becoming a billionaire 19 times over. Adding another curious fact is that the wedding was a backyard ceremony attended only by 100 or so of Zuckerberg’s friends. Those close to the couple say that they’ve been together for a decade and there’s no reason to doubt that this marriage will work out. Chan, who just graduated from Medical school, is regarded as a genius, much like her husband.

The tech scene is flooded with new tech start-ups; we’ve decided to put together a list of a few that are making moves on the tech scene.

Each of us can name at least one friend who has had (or thought they had) a killer idea for the next big app. But how many of those ideas actually take off? Not many. Maybe it’s because the idea wasn’t brilliant after all, or maybe the Silicon Valley venture capital was missing. Whatever the case may be, in actuality, the start-up scene is flooded with apps and services that are more than worthy of investment. Here are our favorite new tech start-ups!

I spent some time at Verizon this morning helping a client port her number from a T-Mobile Android to a Verizon iPhone. The real fun began when we couldn’t transfer 2,400 contacts off the Droid’s SIM card. Needless to say, I wish we had the ConXfer App!

ConXfer is a patent pending wireless, mobile to mobile secure contacts transfer application. It simplifies the process of securely transferring a user’s contact and mobile business cards from one device to another using WiFi or Bluetooth.

And with each year that passes, more and more social networking sites have cropped up, each with unique opportunities to market a business or product. The problem is: you only need to master them.  No big deal, right? (I’m kidding).

Is it possible these days to grow an online business without an online marketing strategy –including all the liking, blogging, sharing and tweeting?  After all, it’s time consuming!

If we were to rank the Cloud Computing acronyms (SaaS, PaaS, DaaS, and IaaS) in terms of people’s familiarity with them, Infrastructure-as-a-Service would probably come up dead last.
