Geekazine is Attending Vidcon 2017: with Tips for you First Timers!

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI will be at Vidcon 2017 to not only learn, but pass on my knowledge of creating online content. As a podcaster and video creator with 10 years of social experience, I am excited to grow my presence and build the skills I still lack. Geekazine Offers Some Tips for Vidcon Here are my tips before heading out: Know the Lay of the Land – Did you know there is a Target only 4 blocks away? Great place to get supplies if you need them. Especially rain ponchos. Shuttles are the Best Transportation – Cabs and Uber can become expensive from the Airport. You can get on a Shuttle to your hotel for a lot cheaper. Keep in mind to book 24 hours in advance. Charging – I bring a lot of batteries. The one I rely on most is my...

Anglr Tracker Records Your Favorite Fishing Spots

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSMany fishermen take their hobby very serious. They love to keep track of bait, spots to fish, conditions of the water and surroundings, and much more. Some have notebooks full of data they have to go back to and review every year. Anglr Labs has helped by putting that into a device you attach to your phone. I caught up with Anglr at the Bluetooth Summit at CES 2017 and found out more. About the Anglr Labs Tracker This is a Bluetooth device that sits on your rod and simply collects data. Information like casts and catches are sent to your phone. You can then call up the app and pin spots where the fish bite the most. If you are on a boat, the app also collects GPS data and how fast you were trolling along. Review Your Data on...

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSGoing to Disneyland is an experience, so keeping the positive vibe is key. You will be taking lots of photos and video, along with running around the park all day. No placed to charge, no places to really relax for after the hour or more wait, you have a 10 minute ride and it’s off to the next attraction.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI spent some time on DealDash.com to try and understand what’s going on. I spent a Sunday working the site to find ways to win.

Tip Your Favorite Band any Time with TipCow

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSAs a band member, I know how hard it is to not only get what you are worth, but also promote with a tip jar. Even as a patron, I never get to the front of stage to throw a couple dollars in to support the music. Now, with TipCow, I can do it all from my phone and don’t even need to be at the show. Sitting down with Chris Bush (CEO of TipCow) at SXSW I found how they are different than any crowdfunding project out there. They vet and curate the artists on TipCow. That way someone else doesn’t claim to be your band and take money from your pocket. You must also be able to prove who you are or else they will not add you to the service. Tips can be outright, or parts of specials....
