Daring to be different is no easy task; especially for women! 

This morning I read through a special McKinsey & Company report, by Joanna Barsh and Lareina Yee titled: “Unlocking the full potential of women in the U.S. economy” . Although the report, 5 full pages, was a little lengthy for my taste, it presented numerous fascinating observations made after much thorough research and contemplation. In short, the report posits that a surefire way to increase GDP, employment, productivity and overall U.S. economic activity is to focus corporate efforts on making certain that women achieve the same roles as men in the workplace.

Cute Geek (cutegeek.com) feature on Renee Schmidt (@cutegeek

CuteGeek, a technology blog written from the female perspective, recently did a profile on me: Brilliant Women in Technology: Meet Renee Schmidt  so I thought it would be proper to return the favor.  CuteGeek is a unique and user friendly technology blog with a guiding philosophy that can be summed up in a statement made by co-founder Radiris Diaz; “we represent everything men are and more…” Not only does this mean that CuteGeek is operated by women who call themselves geeks (although I call them heroines), but also that its content is directed at the technologically inclined modern woman.

The iPhone 4 / iPad 2 have enhanced camera functionality (FYI: the predecessor models had only one camera, while the new devices now actually have two: forward facing and rear facing).  The new cameras also have functionalities the old one did not, like:

Camera Flash
Open the Camera app; there’s a flash icon at the top left of the screen (looks like a lightning bolt).

Sometimes our iPad 2 or iPhone 4 has 10 or more apps suspended but still running, draining battery life.  To close the apps, double click on the home button until the Shortcut Menu appears.  Now tap and hold on any shortcut icon until they begin to wiggle.  You’ll notice a red bar appear at the top left of each app that’s running.  Click on that bar to close the app.  It will shut it down and unpin it from the Shortcut Menu.

Social Media has changed relationships, the way we communicate and even break ups with our ex’s.

Once upon a time, breaking up meant an awkward conversation, removing a picture or two from your bed stand, and packing up your ex’s things into a box –never to be seen again.  If your ex tried to call you afterward, you could ignore the call by sending it to voicemail.  These days breakups are way different.  Aside from having to publicly display your changed relationship status to 500+ Facebook friends and then field tons of questions from people you hardly speak with (case in point: misery loves company), there are so many things to consider, like: do I unfriend? Just the ex, or the ex and his/her friends? Their family? Where do you draw the line?
