OurCrowd, a crowdfunding-VC hybrid reinvents entrepreneur funding in the Startup Nation.

This past October I took an intense trip to Israel where I met with leaders in the sizzling tech scene. Learning about technology in Israel was an incredible experience! Among those I met was Jon Medved, a bearlike, Berkeley grad from Santa Monica who moved to Israel at the onset of his career as a serial entrepreneur. Since then Jon has gone on to invest in over 100 start-up companies.

Dezyn.it, a free interior design app, is making interior design a little bit more fun (and practical!).

Picture this: you’ve been eyeing a vintage couch for months. You finally decide to purchase it. Not only do you have a hard time having it shipped to your home, when it finally arrives, you discover it doesn’t really match your existing vintage look. You then slave to get it returned and end up quite frustrated by the entire ordeal.

If you’ve ever tried to purchase an item for your home (big or small), there’s a cool new app (it’s FREE) that you ought to check out in the AppStore. It’s called Dezyn.it; it’s an app you can use to “pre” visualize how any item might look within any given space, before you actually buy it.

In today’s crowded app marketplace, it can be difficult to find a casual gaming app that has a truly positive message. It seems even the most casual of games have zombies (death), guns, or gambling involved. Every so often, it’s refreshing to see a different type of game; Mom vs. Bad is one such example.

Released in July, the Snapchat App now places in the top ten most popular free apps for the Apple iOS market and the newly released Android version places 33 on the list of top 100 free apps in the Google Play market.

Unless you’re 20-something or the parent of teenager chances are you haven’t heard of this popular picture chatting app. The concept is simple the user can snap a picture, add text to it or draw on the image, and then set a time limit (three to ten seconds) for the viewer to see the image. The concept is that the image self destructs at the end of the viewing time leaving no trace of the picture or video behind on the viewers phone.

What do bloggers, vendors, and entrepreneurs all have in common? They want more website traffic, to bring more business! With the help of Translation Cloud, the endeavor is a little easier.

There are masses on the Internet who do not speak English and website owners who simply don’t translate their respective sites, thereby leaving untapped audiences. If the language barrier were eliminated, then information on the internet could spread much faster – the more people who read a blog or visit an online store in their own native language, the more likely it is that they’ll subscribe to a feed or purchase an item. Or better yet, it may keep them coming back and even bring their friends!

apps vs web page 29 -12-2012

The app vs web page battle rages, yet the future belongs to HTML 5. Not only is HTML 5 mobile friendly, it also helps businesses create better engagement.  

A web browser displays HTML, PHP and other scripting languages on your computer in a way a person can understand so they are not looking at a bunch of code. Back when browsers were still young, they were hardly good enough to display HTML properly. Today’s web browsers are capable of much more than showing simple text and images. Today’s browsers can display and execute complex code (such as HTML 5) and even run applications within the browser (Facebook is a case in point). With the power of HTML 5, modern web browsers are capable of running apps within the browser with no additional support either from hardware or from the compiler. The days of a simple web page are gone; the app vs web battle was over before it had even begun.

The Slice app was designed with these inconveniences in mind, so you can keep tabs on everything you’ve bought online without the headache of trying to manually dig through your digital records.
