Zopaf Salary Negotiation Calculator App – Disrupt 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI remember the first job where I had to negotiate the salary. I was too green to understand how the product worked. If I would have had the Zopaf Salary Negotiation app, I could have gone into the negotiations and possibly have received more. Zopaf app is currently for iOS. The app uses multiple input options to create a graph of where you should be in your negotiations. For example: a Sales representative might have to consider vehicle costs  if no company car is provided. This app also takes out any emotion. If you calculate your costs and they are more than the salary, do you accept the job? If you can walk into a negotiation and state where your costs are, you might just get what you are asking for. You might also decide the job is not worth it and...

Displair: Play with Air and Screen – CES 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSAmong the most fascinating and special technologies we saw at Eureka Playground at CES arised from Displair. This business is the creator of the very first interactive airborne show, by the same label, full with multi-touch support. This is perfect for any person doing marketing, promotional projects or anything else that requires the “neat” element. The best thing about Displair is that the picture keeps entirely penetrable for physical objects. For example, we reached see a trial of Fruit Ninja and had the ability to slash those fruits in to nonexistence by slicing with the screen. This is a really wonderful item that you’ve merely reached see to obtain it. (www.displair.com) [cessponsor] Video by Nakia Mann of F5 Live.

Down but Not Out 3

Down but Not Out

When I first saw reports–I think on Reuters–that the DDOS attack that brought Twitter down and Facebook to a crawl on Thursday was directed at knocking one blogger in Georgia (country, not state) off line, I was somewhat skeptical. But this morning it was in the New York Times, so It Must Be True ™ there might be something to it. Here’s a link to the story in today’s Times. Here’s one to yesterday’s Reuters story. The blogger is looking back at last year’s Russo-Georgian tussel and someone, probably in Russia, doesn’t like it. There is a moral to this story. The world didn’t end because Twitter was down for a few hours and or because I was unable to load Facebook for 15 or 20 minutes. No buildings fell down, no one died, no great tsunamis crashed into Malibu Beach. (Indeed, in that 15 or 20 minutes,...

What Was Old Is New Again

Over at Scientific Blogging, Barry Leiba comments on cloud computing. The story is here. He says, in part, What I think is interesting about the emphasis on cloud computing, and putting your data and services “in the cloud”, is that we’ve come close to completing a circle. In the 1970s, we used “dumb terminals” that talked to “mainframe computers”, behemoths that sat in large data centers. Rant follows.

16 Tech Innovations that didn’t quite stick

You might remember the products. You might remember the hype. Then, you are tooling down highway 41 years later and all of a sudden you think to yourself – “Hey, whatever happened to…” Failed ideas. Maybe it was a great idea, but wasn’t made right, or design errors brought it down. Maybe it was just a bad product. Well, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and see if we cannot repeat these errors again. Oh yeah, why 16? Well because we could. The Computer Watch: Whether it was the Ruputer, the MSN Direct ‘Smart’ Watches, the Timex Data Link Watch or another gadget watch – BTW – I remember having a “Transformers watch”. It was awesome!

Geekazine and Friends 2009 Predictions

If you like this article, please DIGG it. Thanks! In Part 1, we looked at last years predictions. The numbers weren’t too shabby. This year, we’ve expanded the list to anyone that wanted to contribute. And Contributions I did get. 250 of them. I spent most of Friday night and subsequent morning filtering the list to a couple pages worth of information. We have CEO’s, CTO’s, Marketers, Podcasters and even a Psychic helping us with this years list. Of course at the end of the list I will be adding my 2 cents worth for 2009 on Page 2.  So without any further ado, let’s get started.

Did the Geekazine 2008 Predictions Come True? 0

Did the Geekazine 2008 Predictions Come True?

Wow. It was about a year ago I asked for people to send in thoughts as to what to expect in 2008. I also made some Technology predictions. But the real question was – How far off was I? This is actually part 1 of a 2-part story. This first part reviews the predictions I made last year and how far off I was. Part 2 will have this years predictions, including predictions from CEO’s CTO’s TechPodcasters and even a Psychic. So without any further ado, let’s pick apart my idiocy from last year: OLPC will have some growing pains. The first part of OLPC will be the easiest. Maintaining the machines will be the trick. Microsoft coming onboard will muddy the water, but they might be able to do things like offer a better support network to third world countries.

Love or Hate the iPhone – Where Do You Stand?

It’s been a year and a few months since the first iPhone was sold. Since the release of the 3G model, I’ve been seeing people with iPhones I would have never expected have one. The iPhone has brought up a new way to use the internet, the phone and a computer. Apple is under a lot of scrutiny: AT&T being the sole carrier, the Apps store program take downs and the 3G services being poor. Yet the iPhone still is the 2nd best selling phone behind the Motorola RAZR. Apple itself is set to continue through these tough times. There has been a lot of good and bad said about the iPhone. I have seen a lot of Forum posts, even more twitters and more. I decided to go ahead and ask a small group of people over at Help A Reporter what their thoughts were. I asked...

Fakes on the Internet

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Fakes. Throughout time we’ve had to deal with those who want to pass something off as an original. Sometimes we are not fooled. Other times we go years thinking that it’s the real thing until some new technology tells us different. In the last week I’ve seen many fake photos of different items – most notably the Large GPS picture and Windows 7 screenshots. There is even a video out there that supposedly displays Windows 7 functionality. While impressive, it makes me wonder if someone is trying to pass these off to make a quick buck?
