A powerful and free business application that improves your business!

A powerful and free business application that improves your business!

Most organizations don't survey their customers and business partners because it's a time consuming and costly hassle. However, few would argue that you can learn a lot from those people who use your products and services. A few years ago I subscribed to an online service called Survey Monkey. They were one of the top services for creating online surveys, questionnaires[...]

Apps that let students hide nude photos of each other on their phones!

Many of you were surprised and even shocked by recent news reports about the wide-spread sending of nude personal photos among students. Last night it was on CNN, Fox and I suspect many other stations. CAÑON CITY, Colo. - At least 100 students at a high school in Cañon City traded naked pictures of themselves, the authorities said Friday, part of[...]

Time to Understand How Social Media Can Help Your Business

More and more businesses are trying to figure out how to use social media for their benefit.  An even more challenging issue is understanding how each social media platform works.  Not only is each platform designed for different purposes, but also each platform has a different layout and user etiquette.

New Travel App Tells You The Best Time To Fly And Gets You Great Prices!

New Travel App Tells You The Best Time To Fly And Gets You Great Prices!

Hopper. I just flew to Las Vegas for my dad's 88th birthday. My round trip, non-stop fare from Cleveland including all taxes, baggage, and everything else cost me $179! That price wasn't a lucky fluke. I used a new iPhone/iPad app called Hopper. Hopper uses data and analysis from "billions" of flight prices in order to tell travelers when they should fly and[...]

Protect them and do more than you ever thought possible for free! Last week a friend asked me to recommend a photo sharing program for one of her volunteer groups.

Splitting a Restaurant Bill Among Friends and Staying Friends!

Splitting a Restaurant Bill Among Friends and Staying Friends!

An Easy Trick. It's surprising how complex something as simple as splitting a restaurant bill 3 or 4 ways can be. We've all been there. You order a salad and water, and everyone else orders a steak, cocktail(s) and dessert.  Then someone suggests splitting the bill evenly.  To avoid hard feelings, be prepared and ask your server for a separate check when[...]

The Internet Has Run Out of Space!

(Sort Of). My daughter called me yesterday because she saw a Fox News story that the Internet had run out of space. Those of you who are laughing - there's actually quite a bit of truth in it. Those of you who are concerned, it's not as bad as you might think. Here are the facts, with as little techno-babble as possible. The[...]

Get Ready to Be Wowed by Future Technology!

The Cicret Bracelet. I often get asked why I don't have an Apple Watch. I love new technology, but will never get one. For starters I don't wear watches. Then there's the very small screen and my aging vision. With a screen that small you have to pick and choose what you can really use it for. The Cicret Bracelet is a[...]
Medication Simplified!

Medication Simplified!

PillPack My friend takes 22 pills a day and at different times of the day. It would take a NASA scientist an hour every day just to keep that organized. Even if you only take 3 or 4 pills a day, and use pill boxes to keep things straight it's a lot of work and the odds are high that something[...]

Free Anti-Virus Isn't Really Free Any More!

The Times They Are A Changin' Bob Dylan's 1964 lyrics apply well to all of the free anti-virus programs that I've been advocating for years. If you're still using a free anti-virus program on your computer, you may be paying for it in other ways. Software companies are now bundling adware, spyware, toolbars, and other junk to make a quick buck. Here are[...]

Protect Yourself From a Data Breach Putting You Out of Business!

We've all seen the scary headlines about massive data breaches and the billions of dollars that companies like Target, Neiman Marcus, Michaels, and PF Changs are paying to settle legal claims.

Completely free online meetings and remote control!

join.me There are LOTS of ways you can hold online meetings - two of the popular services are GoToMeeting, and WebEx.

New Smart Mileage Tracker Saves You Time and Money!

MileIQ If you use your car for business then you may already be getting mileage reimbursement from your employer.
