Forget Zoom. Here's a better virtual meeting app for home and remote teams

With so many companies around the world being affected by the pandemic it's no wonder that there's been a bit of a problem in getting relevant information out there to your workforce. Zoom seems to have become the go-to platform to communicate with your team. However, that has its own problems. For a start, it requires everyone to be in front of their camera at a certain time of day so that you can get your message across. This either means a disruption of the working day or the 'meeting' takes place out of office hours. Another problem lies in the fact that so many companies have staff ...  More

Keep an eye on your team while they're working at the office or working from home or remotely

There are a great many lessons that can be learned from the pandemic of 2019-20 (and 2021, if it comes to that.) On the personal side, patience, self-discipline and the ability to be able to listen to and trust experts are the things that immediately come to mind. However, when it comes to our working lives, there's little doubt that things are going to have to change rather radically over the coming years. With many companies having staff working all over the world, there has long been the inconvenience of having remote workers in far-flung territories on top of office-based staff in ...  More

A simple, free website builder - requiring no technical knowledge - that gets you online in a flash

According to recent sales figures, online sales figures in June increased by 76% compared to the previous year. That's an astonishing amount. While the July figures dropped back to a 55% increase - due to stores reopening across the country - it still signifies that people are favouring online sales rather than visiting a Main Street store. So, one would have to say that, if you have a product or service to sell, it's never been more important to have an online presence. Many have avoided having a website for a number of reasons. Some are freelancers or sole business people who don't think ...  More

An easy way to find out if your online dating partner is all that they say they are

There's little doubt that dating apps have contributed a lot to the love lives of people from all over the world over the last few years. According to a recent study, about one third of Americans have used a dating app or a dating website. That's a significant rise from 2013 when the figure was about 11%. However, while 12% of people claim to have found a long-term relationship online there have been plenty of sob stories to go along with the happy ones. The anonymity of individuals online has left the gate open for some to take advantage of online partners for one reason or another. So, ...  More

Forecast who will win the 2020 Presidential election with this fun pooping pigeon game

You've got to admit, the US election process has got weirder and weirder over the last few years. Probably the strangest statistic of them all is the fact that the LOSER of the 2016 election received a good 3 million MORE votes than the person who now holds the office of the 'leader of the western world.' Yeah, I know. It's hard to get your head around, isn't it? When Trump was first elected, many used to find some of his comments humorous but that has all gone out of the window now. The polls all suggest that, this time around, it will be the Democrats who prevail. However, I seem to ...  More

Access all your apps fast across a better desktop

In the early days of app development it was always a topic of much amusement that many people would have heaps of apps on their smartphones yet would rarely use any of them. It's all changed now, of course. These days our lives are virtually run by apps whether it is to communicate with our friends and family, plan our public transport, buy goods and services, watch videos or to simply do a Google search . When it comes to our business lives there has been a complete revolution that has made it possible to run the whole business using a variety of apps for everything from accounts to ...  More

The safest and most secure virtual board meetings you'll ever have

This Covid 19 business has knocked us about so much that we forget at times the impact it can have on our first world values. For example, I was talking to a friend who works in a high rise building with close to 1000 employees the other day. Many of his team are still working from home and the reason for that is a simple one - the company can get its workers to the building but, given that lifts can only accommodate a few people at a time, it would take them hours to get all their workers to their floor or office. There was another problem that he told me about too. They are having ...  More

A new word game for the modern age

Word games have been around for a very long time to amuse and educate us. The first crossword puzzle, for example, was first invented by a journalist named Arthur Wynne and appeared in the New York World newspaper way back in 1913. Since then, various word games have reigned supreme as a staple of every newspaper and magazine and have only really been challenged in the brain teaser field in the last few years by the likes of Sudoku, KenKen and a whole bunch of smartphone games. However, if you want to improve your vocabulary skills and knowledge of words, there's nothing quite like a good ...  More

The ultimate app for all areas of property management

There are many lessons that we can learn from this pandemic in the business world. Probably the most significant will be that many of us will have to adjust our business model to suit the situation that we are in. We will need to become sleeker, smarter and more efficient in the way we manage our businesses. Real estate and property management is one of the businesses that has been badly affected. Owners and tenants have been hit hard over the last few months. Many properties lay empty as tenants find they can't afford to pay their rent and many landlords have been forced to drop their ...  More

A tech community where you can learn, share and find new team members

I think we can agree that, given the pandemic mess that we've found ourselves in for the last few months, it's going to take a monumental effort to get our business communities back on track and thriving. Realistically, It could take years. Many have been hit hard while others have simply ceased to exist. Millions of honest-to-goodness workers at all levels have lost their jobs and, for many, it's a time when they might have to think about starting their career again. However, some of our business ideologies might have become slightly dated and flawed over the years and could do with an ...  More
