Dont let just any Tom, Dick or Harriett have your real mobile number

One of the more painful things about giving out your mobile phone number to people that you don't really know is that you are instantly vulnerable. If it’s a business that has your number, the chances are you'll be getting follow up calls offering 'the deal of a lifetime' for the next few weeks. While that's not so bad if you are at home receiving the call, you really don't want random phone calls while you are at work, out for dinner or - worst of all - when you are driving. DialMask is a very useful phone privacy app for iOS that offers an unlimited amount of substitute phone numbers so ...  More

Improve the flow of your business phone system cheaply and quickly

Interactive Voice Response systems or IVR's have typically been intended for use in business to service high call volumes and reduce costs as well as improving the customer experience. They are usually the domain of bigger businesses like banks, tele voting, credit card companies and call centers. Generally, they are used to turn a business into a 24/7 experience or to allow callers' queries to be resolved without the need for queueing and incurring the cost of a live agent. The can also be used to ensure incoming calls are directed to the right people. This can, however, be an expensive ...  More

What if someone had offered free Facebook shares way back then?

If somebody had asked you to get involved with an online social network called Facebook all those years ago do you think you would have taken it any further? If you did, of course, you would probably be sitting pretty right now. So if a new social network was about to start up that has something new to offer and offered you the chance to get involved during the pre-organizational stage, would you be interested? You'd be crazy not to look at it. GlobAllShare claims to be the future of social networking. It also offers the chance for early subscribers who contribute to its growth to benefit ...  More

An intercom and buzzer system fit for a KIng

If you could choose your own sound for your apartment or house buzzer I wonder what you might choose? Personally, I'd go for something like Lionel Ritchie's "Hello" or maybe Anita Ward's "Ring My Bell" but the point is, when the rest of your place is immaculate and built to your specifications,  it would be nice to have a buzzer system that you want rather than the one that comes with your apartment when you take possession of the keys. Ringo is a new phone and security application that not only personalizes your buzzer system but then adds value by giving you multiple intercom codes ...  More

Next generation phone communication for smart companies of all sizes

It never ceases to amaze me that, while virtually every other element of business practices has developed exponentially over the last decade or so, most businesses are still nailed to their expensive and, let's be honest here, rather dated phone systems. I still find it amazing that I can Skype and the person on the other end hears my voice as if I was in the same room and yet, when talking on the phone, it can sound like I'm at the bottom of a mine in Karzakhstan. SimpleVox is a phone platform for modern companies that let's you add all of your phone devices, whether they be SIP phones, ...  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. He runs a blog called I Will Teach You To Be Rich and has now released this monetary guide based on his ability to negotiate his way out of everything from bank fees to car insurance whilst also teaching you how to best negotiate your next wage rise.   Negotiate It is for anyone who ...  More

Keep a close eye on your kids' and employees' phone habits

Phone Tracker is a bit like having a well organized safety net for your smartphone and manages to deliver somewhat more than it first appears. And while its name suggests that this tracking application is purely around to track the location of your Android phone there are plenty of other really useful features that come with it. It puts a private detective in your phone to intuitively track GPS location and has the potential to keep an eye on your kids by checking phone and SMS details, Internet history as well as giving you a phone and email contact book.   Phone-Tracker is a handy ...  More

Get early warning severe weather alerts pushed to multiformats

There are still people out there that believe that climate change is a myth but I think the more astute of us realize that, weather-wise, things aren't quite the way they used to be where the weather is concerned. Massive storms and tornadoes and drought across large areas of America. A couple of years ago in Australia there was a slowly moving flood that was the size of Germany and Poland put together. And we won't even talk about the Katrina floods. One of the most important things that has been learnt is that there is nothing better than an early warning of impending bad weather and ...  More

Easy 911 contact for the hearing impaired

There are over two million burglaries in the US each year and, in about half of those cases, there is someone in the house when the perpetrator gets in. So, what do you do? Call 9-1-1, obviously. But when we throw in the equation of hearing impaired people at home it gets even scarier. There are some 30 million hearing impaired people in the US for whom SMS texting is not an option as it is not supported by most US 911 centers. Advanced911 comes to the rescue with this security and tracking application for iOS that lets you send an instant message and your location details to participating ...  More
