Webware put out it’s top 100 and we’re going to go through them and see what was good, what was bad, and what was… well, you know.. Webware is a site dedicated to watching what is popping up out on the internet. Any application that a web developer puts out will be checked out and reported on by this organization. It’s a good thing, too. There are so many out there, it’s tough to keep up. On April 21st, Webware put out the list of the top 100 apps. There were ten categories, each with ten winners. There were 5000 nominees, and 300 apps were chosen as finalists. Over 1.9 million votes were cast to dwindle this list down to...

Customer Service – How Social Networking makes the job that much harder.

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS*Updated 03-13 -08. See Below Snafu.  Freedictionary.com defines it as “A chaotic or confused situation”. The word SNAFU is an acronym, in which most of it I cannot decode here, so I’ll fudge it a bit. Situation Normal All Fouled Up. If you were to go through a snafu a few years ago with a company, you would most likely grumble to your friends and family and then move on – Little impact on that. However, in this day and age, a Snafu can really come back to hurt. With Social Networking rising 47 percent year to year (according to Nielsen Netratings), this can really give companies a tough time if problems arise. But still, can social networking cause a company hardship because of a single or series of transactions?

If GeoCities became a Social Network Site…..

Last night I was on System Showdown talking about tech. They asked my thoughts on the Microsoft/Yahoo merger. I basically shot from the hip and said that Yahoo should stop “Dropping Landmines” and focus on not being bought out by restructuring.  It got me to thinking again on what Yahoo could change. I remembered that some time ago, I talked about what Yahoo could do to turn things around. One of the things I mentioned was if Yahoo Geocities became more of a Social Networking Hybrid.

Roundup #3 – Then and Now – 11-24-07

I remember the Holidays back in the 70’s and 80’s. It was a different time then. Phones were wired at the house, we all watched TV on a 20” CRT monitor, and video games were on an Atari, NES or SEGA system. Cars ran on Regular (til  the early 80’s) or Unleaded and sometimes Diesel. You spent about 20 minutes outside warming up and scraping off the car. Albums were on CD. And all your Spam came in letter format, through Magazines or TV commercial. Does anyone remember the onslaught of Ronco products, Patsy Cline and Zamfir album commercials? Send only 9.99 plus S&H to the address on your screen? They were only a minute long. Not 30. Remember flipping through 3-4 channels and watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” on all of them Christmas eve?

Weekly Focus #1- 11-11-07

Veterans Day. The day where we remember the men and women who have fought for us and subsequently died for our freedom. From the Civil War to today, Americans have given their life for their country. We remember that, and we honor that. Technology and War are two things that go hand in hand. The newest advances will give the advantage swiftly and sometimes without prejudice. Whether it was the first Bomber Planes in WW1, the first use of mobile communications or the nuclear assault on Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945. Each advantage turns War into a new game. Whoever is on top of their technology game can turn a battle to their advantage. Remember the movie “Small Soldiers” (1998)? Action figures with a smart chip embedded in their systems start battling each other once activated. Today we have Robots that do things like disarm bombs and unmanned...
