One thing that makes Bob Reina unique from others is that he is willing to help people from various walks of life. He is not just trying to give to charities. He is doing his part to help people that are trying to achieve a higher level of success. One thing that makes him successful is that he has a heart for helping all types of people. One of the best ways he tries to help people is by giving them tools to help themselves. For one thing, his actions are reminiscent of one who teaches a man to fish as opposed to giving him a fish.
Bob Reina has developed tools that will help people create the jobs that they want so that they will be able to not only support themselves, but help others. Bob has put together Talk Fusion, which is a marketing platform that is designed to help people reach their customers. Among the things that Talk Fusion does is incorporate video in marketing. People are able to send videos in their emails so that their customers will be more likely to buy the product. This makes a winning deal for the entrepreneur that is looking to make the sales.
When it comes to jobs and lifestyle, entrepreneurs are the key. For one thing, jobs are created by entrepreneurs. Therefore, it is important for entrepreneurs to get the help they need so that they can make enough money to expand their company so that they can create more jobs. Entrepreneurs are good for the economy. This is why it is a good thing for Bob Reina to help entrepreneurs to achieve a successful career. For one thing, he understands that he can’t improve the lives of others by himself. He understands that people need jobs, and jobs are created by entrepreneurs.
The internet is quickly changing the way people do business. Media is streamed into millions of homes every second, and many people are considering telecommuting to work. The internet is vital to business growth throughout the industry, but there are some obstacles to the internet revolution. The country’s data communications infrastructure is horribly out of date, leaving millions of people without internet or stuck with inadequate connections. The country must transition to optical transmission so that people can properly communicate with one another.
Several companies are working towards a brighter future that involves the use of optical transmission technology throughout the globe. One of the most important companies in the industry is Coriant. Coriant is a spin off of Siemens and the company has a strong vision for the future. They sell the hardware and software necessary for optical transmission. These products will help companies move towards an optical connection throughout the backbone of their voice, data, and mobile networks. Their physical products consist of extremely high quality cables that ensure the best possible transmission rate throughout each companies location. The software products from this company are designed to manage the network and to plan future networks. The company sees the optical transmission revolution coming quickly, and they expect to be at the top of the industry for years to come.
One reason for Coriant’s success is their brilliant CEO, Shaygan Kheradir. Shaygan was made CEO in late September of last year, and he expects to bring great change to the company. He has left his mark on the industry for years. Shaygan has 28 years of experience in the business world, working primarily in the technology, financial, and telecoms industry. His work in the telecom industry was especially brilliant. While working in the telecom industry he worked with several large companies and he understands the struggles that operators experience.
An app dedicated to the cleaning and repair of homes called Handy has been the number one place where both cleaners and people who need their homes cleaned have gone to book these cleaning services. It is known that it used to be quite difficult to find people to clean your home, but Handy has helped changed this aspect of home cleaning.
Handy is popular because of the easy interface and the quality of cleaning provided by people using the site. Less than four percent of people applying for Handy actually make it on Handy, which makes the average cleaner very reputable and ideal for home owners and landlords.
Handy is not exclusively reserved for cleaners, as only eighty percent of the people on Handy clean homes, while the rest of them do other sorts of handyman work.
Handy recently became the recipient of $50 million in more funding so they could expand into new areas. There are only 28 places that Handy works in, so expanding the range that Handy can appeal to is expected to be essential in the company’s success.
Handy is worth about $500 million, making it one of the most popular home cleaning forums in the entire world. There have been a few competitors that have been lured in by the technological base of the company in hopes that they would earn a good deal of money, but none of these other companies have done very well. Handy has been dubbed the Uber of the home cleaning service industry because it is so easy to find someone who can clean your home.
The biggest problem with home automation at this point in time is the lack of communication between devices. Many companies are coming out with devices with various sensors and remote control features, however, using a remote control or an app isn’t exactly autonomous action.
The people at iRobot, the creators of the automated Roomba vacuum cleaners, are taking on the challenge of home automation. The next generation of Roombas could be equipped with a tiny camera and an internet connection that would allow the device to understand the objects in your home.
Understanding what you have and how you like to use it is paramount for home automation systems. The Roomba device would be connected to the internet and use the images it collects to create a map of your home. When certain patterns are matched, such as you coming in the front door and sitting down on the couch, other actions could be taken, such as turning the TV on to your favorite channel.
Tech-savvy folks at The Aspire New Brunswick have learned that a future version of the Roomba, equipped with a robot arm, could potentially catalogue all of the objects in your home. You could then have the Roomba save the locations of all of your items and return the items to where they belong while cleaning up. This technology alone would bring Roomba to a whole new level.
On April 22, USAID announced the winners of the Desal Prize, which was awarded for a competition held to challenge people to invent desalination systems to be used in developing countries. Such systems would be used to extract the salt from salty or brackish water and make it potable. Amen Clinic systems had to meet three criteria: They had to be energy efficient, environmentally sustainable, and relatively inexpensive.
A group from MIT and Jain Irrigation Systems won the $140,000 first prize. Their system uses solar panels to charge batteries, that are then used to fuel a system that uses electrodialysis to desalinate water. In electrodialysis, a small electric current is sent into the water to draw out dissolved salt particles that have an electric charge. The team also used the sun’s UV rays to disinfect the water and make it safe for drinking.
Both California and Chile are exploring the possibility of large-scale desalination plants, but these are expensive and require complex technology. People in a poor country need something cheap, durable and relatively simple. The MIT/Jain team and the other competitors tested their devices at the Brackish Groundwater Desalination Research Facility in New Mexico. They had to run their systems for 24 hours straight and remove salt from 2100 gallons of water per day. The next test will be to let farmers in an area where USAID operates use the system in a pilot project.
Boeing is making waves in the private sector by securing a patent for a “forcefield.” The defense system would attentuate electromagnetic forcefield arcs. Essentially, the deflector shield could protect areas from potential explosions and ionized air.
It would not protect, however, against shrapnel or other flying particles such as metal pieces from an explosion. The plasma field would actually need sensors to be activated that would then protect the interior from electric sources. Bernardo Chua has read that researchers have made references to science fiction. They claim that the power won’t compete with that of Star Wars or Star Trek, but that it is a good starting point for powerful defense technology.
When asked for a comment, chief engineer of SelTec, a defense company working with Boeing, said that the new technology will “change the nature of the defense industry for years to come. I believe it is the next stage.”
Smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers generally have a lot of things in common, but one factor that pretty much skews across all the areas of portable technology is a battery. Just about every mobile user has gotten the “low power warning” in a variety of methods and alert functions at one time or another only to be tasked to plug the device in for an extended period of time. However, one group of researchers has decided that charging times need to be reduced. Imagine being able to fully charge a device in sixty-seconds.
According to Time, Stanford University researchers have developed an aluminum battery that charges more rapidly than those pesky lithium backed units in the pockets of most users. Plus, the aluminum batteries can be shaped, bent, or cut into just about any imaginable pattern, which enhances the appeal of a new type of battery. The downside is that those researchers must now figure out how to double the power output of the battery to equal the lithium batteries that have become so popular throughout the technology industry.
The downside notwithstanding, those days of charging a device for hours or so could be coming to an end in the future. Once development of the new technology is perfected, users such as Marc Sparks will not have to stand guard over the plugs at coffee shops and cafes any longer, which is good news for anyone low on power.
Now you can stream music on Twitter. During a panel at South by Southwest in Austin, Rhapsody announced that it will be allowing users to stream music on the site. The deal won’t extend to Rhapsody’s entire catalog, but you’ll have quite a few tuns to choose from. The music network plans on allowing 30 million songs in fact to be streamed on the service.
So how’s it going to do it? Music will be available on Twitter via Twitter Cards. Ricardo Guimaraes BMG knows that twitter’s Cards are the displays at the bottom of tweets that contain information. Cards are already being used by a number of publishers to show previews of their stories. The Cards can also come int play when someone shares a Vine on Twitter or a link to Apple’s iTunes.
Music can be streamed from any of the new Twitter cards for free, with no subscription service require. Rhapsody hopes by making the feature free, it will in turn encourage more people to learn about and potentially subscribe to the service in the future. What do you think? Would you want to stream a single song on Twitter using the service?
Police municipalities across the country are adopting a new device that can track your phone. The only catch is they aren’t allowed to tell you about it.
The device, commonly referred to as Stingray, intercepts cell phone signals and allows authorities to track and monitor any cell phone in the area. It’s small enough to fit into a suitcase and acts like a mini cell phone tower.
Creators of the device will only sell the device under the stipulation that a non-disclosure agreement be signed prior to purchase. Jason Halpern suggests this means that law enforcement agencies aren’t allowed to disclose any information about the device, or its use, to the public.
Law enforcement agencies are shelling out upwards of $500,000 in tax payer’s money for the device, while keeping the people paying for the device in the dark.
So what’s with all the secrets anyway? What exactly are they trying to hide? Is it really ethical to covertly spend tax payer’s money on a device that could infringe upon their privacy?
It appears as though this is yet another step towards a big brother dominated, data driven future that Orwell himself could only have imagined. Will the tax payers stand against it? How can then when they know absolutely nothing about it.
Apple’s iTunes service suffered a massive outage on Wednesday. Early Wednesday morning the company’s Apple Store, iTunes Store iBooks store and mac App store all went down. The cause of the outage is currently unknown. The issue doesn’t appear to be effecting Apple’s payment service Apply Pay. iCloud and Beats Music allow appear to still be operations.
Apple’s software stores are huge money makers for the company. An outage for this long, (currently roughly 7 hours) could be a decent-sized financial hit for the retailer. The iTune’s Store, for instance was responsible for $2.6 billion in sales during the final three months of 2014. Based on that, a 6 hour outage for service would account for a whopping $7 million is lost revenue, and that number is just getting larger.
Folks at Anastasia Date (askmen.com) have learned that Apple released the latest version of its mobile operating system, iOS 8.2 on Monday. The new operating system also included a new watch app, and app store especially for the Apple Watch. It will be interesting to see what the cause of this outage is determined to be, and how much revenue it ultimately costs the company.
