Automate your friends so you never miss their birthday again

There was a time in life when we had all this information safely tucked away in our brain. We could remember people's street addresses, their phone numbers, their birthdays. It was all in our heads. I can still remember telephone numbers that I had many, many years ago. These days we are all so busy and pre-occupied so we have our mobiles to remind us of some of the things that are important. We don't have to worry about street addresses anymore because nobody sends letters but phone numbers and birthdays are essential.   More

Find the best localised social media, discounts and deals worldwide

You know, I'm always appreciative of a new method of getting one's advertising material across to the general public. Advertisers have tried so many different methods over the years but they generally get thwarted by the majority of their intended audience - much of the time on principle. With a lot of app advertising these days, you can pay a small premium so you don't have to see them. But, in reality, all these advertisers want to do is to show you their goods, place a good deal in front of you and save you a bit money. To put it bluntly, advertising is a legitimate part of everyday ...  More

Wanna become a Forex trader? This is where you start.

I think it was Warren Buffet who once famously stated that investing isn't a game where the guy with the 160 IQ beats the guy with the 130 IQ. His point being, of course, that you don't have to be a rocket scientist to make money trading currency on Forex. You just have to understand 'the game' and be well informed. So, how do you get into the game? Well, there are hundreds of books out there - most of which claim to be the best on the market. Then there are the seminars and workshops where experts will tell you their secrets to successful trading. There are even colleges that reckon they ...  More

Find inner peace with this new meditative strategy game

Different people desire different things from their gaming experience. Some want adventure games with lots of back story while others want puzzle games to test their brain and their logic. Some want games filled with fast-paced action while others would rather go for educational games involving math and science. However, over the last few years there has been a development towards calmer and more thought- provoking games. These are games that are played with the head rather than with an adrenaline filled heart. These games are almost uncategorisable but can be loosely filed under the title ...  More

An SOS lifeline for our elderly relatives at the touch of a button

No matter where we are in the world, it's safe to say that care for the elderly is a major problem that is beginning to reach danger point. In the US, for example, there will be over 72 million people aged 65 or over by 2030. In Australia there are over 100,000 elderly citizens who are waiting for home care packages to be provided. In the UK it's said that 97% of older people dread the thought of moving into an age care facility. The bottom line here is that our populations are growing older and Governments (and concerned families) are having great difficulty in finding the money to fund ...  More

A voice-activated personal safety app to keep your family safe when you're not around

As much as we would like to think we are safe when we are walking the streets, there can be little doubt that the world has become a much more dangerous place over the last few years. While we don't like to admit it, crime rates around the world are increasing on a daily basis and we are not just talking about major cities here. It's a worldwide problem that could rear its ugly head in any country in the world, in any size of town or city and to any of us.  We could be on our way to school or college, coming home after a night out, going down to the shops to pick up some groceries or, ...  More

Translate foreign languages from multiple sources in a flash

If you asked a hundred people to tell you which foreign language translation app they use, the chances are that most of them would say Google Translate. It's the obvious go-to translation app because everyone knows Google. However, while there are heaps of apps out there that all claim to be the best translation app in town, there can be quite a difference in their features and their ease of use. Some are based on voice activation, some offer a copy and paste option, some are designed specifically for travelers while others have a limited language option. Then there are the other options ...  More

The perfect companion piece to Salesforce CRM that does everything except make tea

What most of us really need in our business life is a damned good personal assistant. Someone who could organise us better, someone with all the relevant details of customer communications at their fingertips and someone who has all the up-to-date information that we need to take our business further. It would be a bonus if they could make a decent cup of tea or coffee to go with it but that could be asking too much. Unfortunately, the days of PA's for sales teams is pretty much over these days. However, if your sales team don't mind foregoing their tea or coffee there is another way of ...  More

What's the easiest way to get a job done? Hire a local

If you check the unemployment figures around the world you might be forgiven for thinking that the job market hasn't been as healthy as it is now for many years. The US is sitting on 3.7% right now and the UK at 4.1%. The bad news though is that close to one third of unemployed people are under 25 and that figure is even higher if you are over 55. The younger ones are able bodied and ready to work and the older ones have all the skills you'd ever need but employers would rather choose someone younger. Add these to the number of underemployed - people who aren't getting as many hours as ...  More

Print your photos and documents directly from your Android device with ease

Android phones and tablets have proven over the years to be a worthy rival to the behemoth that is Apple and they can do many of the things that iOS is famous for. They can store all your favorite music, take and store great photos and they can handle very large documents with ease. What's that other thing they can do? Ahhh yes, you can even make phone calls with them. They're a bit like the transponder from the Star Trek series though I don't think they've mastered beaming Scotty up yet. One of the many other things they can do is to print images directly from the device.  More
