Positive advice from your guardian angels

I think it was Steve Martin who said in the Grand Canyon movie, "The answer to all of life's problems are in the movies." There are a lot of movies out there so I'm sure that's true in general but I don't think any movie has offered up a remedy for world peace just yet. I think we all agree that the big problems can be very difficult to solve but smaller ones might have a chance...given the right advice.

Get your personal budget in order and know your monetary limits

It would appear that, after the horrors and belt-tightening that resulted from the GFC a few years ago, there seems to be a little bit of money back in the pocket again. It took around 10-15 years for the turnaround to happen after the crash of '29 so we've probably done a good job in minimizing the damage so far. I think we've learned a few things out of this crisis though. The main thing i think that we've learned is that it's never been more important to organize ourselves monetarily and that it's vital to live within our means. A budget is essential -especially where families are ...  More

Create a real 3D city on your iPad

Fancy yourself as the next Frank Lloyd Wright or Frank Gehry? Cutetown won't quite give you the same freedom of expression as some of the buildings created by either of those great two architects but it does provide a hell of a lot of fun. The app is a beautiful 3D map editor that allows you to transform GPS maps into highly detailed three-dimensional maps of real places on iPad. Its a bit like using a digital version of Lego, I guess. At the moment, as the app is in its early stages, there are only a few places to build your 3D creations but the team are working on the world city by city. ...  More

Find the coolest places around with real travel stories

The last third of Cameron Crowe's much maligned minor classic movie "Elizabethtown" features a lengthy road trip for Orlando Bloom's character Drew. It's a fabulous and classic road trip that he undertakes and one that has inspired many to take that same trip. The travel story is mapped out beautifully by his new friend Claire and takes him from from Louisville Kentucky down to New Orleans via all sorts of fascinating places on the way. Gazettr is a new travel application that draws on the same passion and enthusiasm that Claire's road trip gave to Drew. It's a place to discover all the ...  More

Solve problems, answer questions and get tips

I used to work with a guy who I once described in a newsletter as someone who knew a little bit about everything. If he didn't know enough about the subject, he always seemed to know where to get that information from. Strangely, he took umbridge at my observation, but I think that there is something admirable about having a broad spectrum of knowledge. And a broad spectrum of knowledge is a phrase you could easily associate with Tipspedia because, while it may not contain the answers to all of life's questions, it does provide an expert to help you make the right decision. This knowledge ...  More

The bees-knees of negotiating skills

While I was doing a little background research about this finance tips application it was hard not to see the plethora of mentions of developer Ramit Sethi. It would appear that Mr Sethi, a New York Times best selling author and former Stanford inmate, is the bees knees when it comes to negotiating deals.
