The iWatch Gets Real

iWatch Concept

The rumor mill is hot again today with yet another rumor that an Apple iWatch is more than just whispers, it’s full on in the works. There’s at least 100 product designers working on it right now! Are you surprised by the the possibilities of this new addition to the Apple product family? I’m not—I called it forever ago!

Working From Home

Looks like the big headline this week comes from Yahoo, where new CEO Marissa Mayer decided that to save the sinking ship she’s now in charge of, she’s putting her foot down on employees working from home.

Fox News Goes BATshit Crazy

Fox News BATs

Blog Much? You Should.

Start-Blogging

Got a question? Got a problem? What do you do? Google it (sorry Bing). If your company has the answers people need, you have to rank first—or at least on the first page.

Money can buy you happiness (if ranking at the top of a search makes you happy), but there is something you can do that won’t cost an arm and a leg It’ll give you an advantage when it comes to search rankings. Blog. Do it now, and do it often.

Terror Is In The Eye Of The Media

If a bomb explodes, kills people, and no one is around to report it—would we all still feel “terrorized”?
