Once upon a time paper resumes were submitted when applying for a job. With Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Tumblr, you don’t need old-fashioned resumes any more.
Watching TV is a favorite American past time, however, what most American’s never consider, is that most people in the world don’t have the same luxury. That’s because most places around the globe don’t have American television coverage with our favorite programs –in many countries the broadcasts we watch and love are blocked. That’s where UnoTelly comes in.
We all have loved ones whom we care about and want always to remain safe. Unfortunately, women in particular, continuously face situations that compromise their safety and are potentially dangerous (e.g., when living far from home, leaving work late at night, going on blind-dates, meeting friends at a bar or walking to their car or home alone, to name a few). In such cases, it is not easy to get help when and where it is needed.
You’ve been told that it is rude to have your cell phone at the dining table, whether you are dining with your family, or having a dinner date with your partner. The problem is, the society we live in is so super connected, that many of us have a hard time disconnecting for even an hour, let alone imagining a life sans our “connection.”
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.
Imagine a life without the Internet for 24 hours. Could this even happen? Yes and even if just for a single day, the prospect sounds terrifying. Imagine a day without email, Twitter, and Facebook. No Google to search for assignments or research, no You Tube to enjoy – in many ways, it seems synonymous with life halting for a day, doesn’t it?
Path is an application that is based upon the concept of “sharing your life journey” with your family and your closest friends. Path was launched in 2010 in San Francisco, CA by a former Facebooker. Since its debut, some 3 million people have downloaded the application.
Path is an intimate social networking tool based on smart journal that allows users to tell their story, share pictures and choose the 150 people whom they wish to share those with.
On July 6-22, immerse yourself in NY_Hearts: LES, a virtual love story you can experience through an app.
Audio books are ‘in’ but imagine a whole new way of storytelling –with an app. An app through which you hear the real sounds and see the real sites of the narrative –as though you’re actually there! That’s the idea behind the Moveable Feast app. The app allows you to create and share “multimedia narratives.” It can be a tour when you’re far off traveling, within which you can include images, videos, and text –all connected to GPS coordinates and a “virtual trail” that others will be able to follow using their iPhone or desktop.
Two extremely enterprising University of Washington juniors, Mariah Gentry and Kyle Bartlow, have designed a product to safe keep your iPhone –it’s called the JoeyBra.
The JoeyBra was created for women who are constantly on the go and struggle to find a place to put their ID, keys, or phones.
The Internet is awash with job offers; all you have to do is check your spam folder –you’ll find a “guru” telling you that he/she will teach you how to earn $1,000-7,000 a week after buying his/her book or CD. That’s a scam– and no matter how tempting the email/video offer looks, do not buy it. You don’t have to pay someone to give you a job; it should be the other way around. Last year, more than 17,000 work-from-home internet scams and spam were reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center, costing victims over $20 million in losses.
