Email Signatures are those small self-promoting snippets that you usually see at the end of an email message. They’re generally good for signalling who you are and providing details people might otherwise not know. Since you might be creating this by hand, you may not know it can be nicely generated by online tools such as in today’s First Look. Today I’m taking a look at Email Signature Generator and speaking to the author of the tool.
Today I’ve been thinking about the constant conflict between writing blog posts and commenting on blogs (or other types of sites). When is the line crossed from a simple comment to that of a full blown blog? When should we tell people that comment on our sites that they should take it to a blog? I’ve pondered these ideas in the past as I’ve faced Dave Winer‘s particular outlook on this topic.
I thought this would just be a matter of time, but someone has gotten around to implementing the Popcorn Time streaming torrent system working inside of a browser. Previously, I looked at this interesting phenomenon that was only possible on jailbroken iOS devices. But, now it appears to have expanded to the web (via a browser).
Like Google Reader, iGoogle, Wave and Buzz before it, the days of the social network Google Plus may be numbered. The writing appears to be on the wall. With Twitter’s announcement on May 19 that Google‘s app would include tweets in searches, Google is making massive changes. While Google may want to spic it differently, signs are pointing to the end of the social network.
When I joined the writing team at MovieViral in late 2013, I had aspirations of writing about the other topic I enjoy: movies. My interest was twofold; Get some experience writing for a larger site, and eventually work toward earning money for that work. For a time, the writing was difficult to keep up with, but I persevered. Eventually the site would sell to a new, British, group. In return for supporting them, they would steal from me. Let me explain.
Using Flickr for photo management appears to be a great value proposition. Store all your photos, and in turn they offer a full terabyte (that’s 1000 gigabytes!) of drive space. For all the different options for storing and managing photos online, Flickr can’t be beat. Right? As good as that is, Flickr also has to be the most annoying and convoluted systems to use for managing and sharing photos. Today, I thought I’d look at Flickr‘s worst offences.
Apple is known for taking its time on products. One of the most anticipated of them is a dock for lightning devices. I had a feeling we might never see this thing. As you can see by the product page on Apple, the device is indeed a reality.
There’s always an excitement when something new arrives. The feeling like this is the first time anyone has ever seen a thing; Like I’m part of an exclusive club. That exclusive feeling gets even stronger when the product is Kickstarter funded Foldio2. After making an initial version and funding that on Kickstarter, makers Orangemonkie came back to successfully crowdfund the second iteration: Foldio2. Join me as I take a look at this new product and share my thoughts about its usefulness.
Sure, this blog isn’t exactly an entertainment site, but I do love movies. In fact, I spent a great deal of time writing 45+ articles for MovieViral (for free, no less – perhaps that’s another blog). But, this landscape is changing fast, from movies, to short films, to long-form serial television, to shows released from online services. In fact, the show Powers was released on the Playstation network – a gaming company. I’m interested in all types of entertainment, from the more obscure indie, to the blockbuster, to all the amazing science fiction. But, what do we call viral content in the Internet age?
Today, I’ve introduced a theme change to this blog, and I hope you like it. As you can probably tell, the look and feel here is far different than the last design. Over the next little while, I’ll be working out the smaller issues and making an effort to clean up the overall look. But, for now, please take it for a spin and let me know what you think.
