If the minds at Google had it their way they’d probably take over the world. It was just announced that the Google empire is about to expand by adding an online tablet store along with future tablets that they will be co-branding. According to the Washington Post, Google will be selling their tablets directly to consumers and will also be imitating the Apple/Amazon model. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Furthermore, USA Today states that the company will be running its Android operating systems on these devices which will undoubtedly give them an advantage.

Business Etiquette 101

Jaded may be the word when it comes to communication these days. While communication has always been something of a two-way street, some may agree that things were a lot less convoluted when it just involved using a simple telephone. Things have undoubtedly changed. Nowadays, individuals have been spoiled with different methods such as email, instant messaging and text messages, and as a result some of us have forgotten how to differentiate when it’s important and necessary to use each one. This can be quite an issue when it relates to the business world…especially texting.

What I Learned from a Career in Web Hosting

Two years ago, if anyone would have told me that I’d be working in web hosting, I’d have called them a liar. It is an accepted fact among my peers and colleagues that I like writing. Putting pen to paper just seems to beguile me — hence the reason I majored in journalism and communications. I wanted to meet people, inspire others and interview legends while clutching a digital audio recorder and asking pressing questions. It’s funny that sometimes the things that we plan on doing don’t quite work out the way that we expected – not that there’s anything wrong with that. After all, sometimes our trajectories in terms of a career can lead us to something we didn’t quite anticipate…like web hosting for example.

Internet Explorer (IE) used to be the top dog of browsers back in the day. It was so much better than what AOL had to offer, and hey, it came pre-installed on every new PC! The little blue “e” was how you got to the Internet. Then slowly, but surely, folks wised up, and other browsers such as Opera, Firefox and Chrome emerged with better interfaces, better features and a lot less freezing. Plus the other guys don’t have nearly as many security holes. IE is like Swiss cheese.

How I Fell in Love with Twitter

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that social media has practically revolutionized the way people communicate with one another. What began with simple rotary dial telephones has now evolved into something of an Internet insurrection. As someone who generally rejects the latest in technological crazes and fads, I’m not ashamed to say that I fought off joining Facebook, held off on signing up for Twitter, avoided Linkedin at all costs, and flat out declined membership with Pinterest.
