Get news from around the world in categorized RSS

More and more businesses these days are adopting the idea of an internal business social collaboration network to aide communication in the workplace. For a start, most people are pretty familiar with the social network concept and use it on a regular basis so the learning factor is minimal.

Increase your knowledge and skills by attending conferences online

Knowledge is everything these days, it seems. Start a new job and it's as much about just how up to date you as it is on what you can bring to the table.

They were lucky. These days, the computer is thought of in the same way as the brain, it seems - the rule has been that you don't mess with it. But it's not quite so daunting as it appears.

Keep in touch with friends and colleagues in real time

When you think about it, Glassmap owes as much to the Starship Enterprise as it does to evolving geolocation technology. All this comprehensive GPS and communication application needs to complete it is a button that says "Beam me up Scotty" and it would fit nicely on Spock's utility belt. Glassmap goes under the title of a geolocation device but, in reality, it's way more than just that. Not only does it let you share your exact location with friends but there are also tools to share photos in real time, co-ordinate meetings, chat messaging and VoIP. In fact, pretty well everything you ...  More

Calm your fear of flying

When I flew to LA just after 9/11 so many people asked me if I was petrified at the thought of it. In truth, it was probably the safest time to fly. The fact is, it's much safer to fly than it is to drive and you've probably got a bigger chance of being struck by lightning than going down in a plane. But try telling that to the guy sitting next to you that's clutching the seat so tightly his fingers are turning white. Turbcast is an air travel application for iphone and ipad that delivers stone cold information to allay the fears of flying for even the most white knuckled of ...  More
