Sex with Glass app lets you see from your partner’s POV

Sex with Google Glass — the very name is designed to arouse attention.

googleglass

It’s specifically an app project in development that lets two people share their video feeds so they can see their intimate acts from each other’s perspective.

The app is designed to react to the wearer saying, “OK, Glass, it’s time” to share video streams. When you’re done, you say, “OK, Glass, pull out.” It’s the techie equivalent of having mirrors all over the room. The app is designed to gather footage and then compile it into a multi-view video, which could have broad implications for leaked celebrity sex tapes.

Should You Believe Everything That Little Bird Told You?

It’s hard to be sure that anything online is true – people’s profiles can be deceptive, there’s sales patter everywhere, adverts make astounding claims and gossip and unsubstantiated rumor abound. So when it comes to uber-hyped share launches, like Facebook and Twitter, should you really believe everything that the little bird tells you? The launch of Twitter recently has prompted record numbers of purchases in overseas stock by investors from the UK, however, but should you be one of them?

A_little_birdy_told_me_by_blanklives

The Historical Perspective

Some investors will remember the “dotcom” bubble that burst far more spectacularly and had far more troubling effects than the feared millennium bug had done a couple of years earlier. Underlying the dotcom disaster was the fact that most companies were valued on the number of clicks that they received. This was translated into wildly inaccurate valuations that bore little or no relation to their actual holdings, sales or profits. Investors soon discovered their investments were worth very little and the bubble burst.

Heck, History’s Repetitive, Isn’t It?

The problem with the recent raft of share launches is similar; number of users has been identified as a key valuation tool but the potential for advertising revenue on sites is unclear. Some users (I’m admitting nothing) simply block the senders of promotional tweets, to limit their exposure to unwanted interruptions while discussing what they’re eating (and where) with a global community of millions. The competition is also growing with social media sites including Facebook, LinkedIn and Google, all grabbing shares of the market.

Technology Meets the Human Element

However, the technology can be more ‘ropey’ than investors realize. The advertising model that sites like this use is possibly flawed; it’s based on the idea of interrupting their clients mid-search (or chat) with unwanted ads (not necessarily a popular approach). Sites also profile users; I checked how Google had evaluated me, in the interests of research, and discovered, much to my surprise, that I’m a sixty-something woman with a fondness for football and knitting. As it happens, I’m none of the above. Algorithms, it seems, may spot patterns, but rarely inconsistencies.

The People’s Choice?

Of course, investment is all about risk. Twitter et al are certainly popular, growing and becoming something of a ‘utility’ in many people’s lives. This factor may well be an important consideration. When new technology transforms into an everyday utility this indicates two things; one that it’s here to stay and two; that it’s become ‘normal’ to people. While some nefarious users may block promotional tweets, and be pleased Google has them so wrong that the adverts that appear when searching are utterly irrelevant, it’s fairly clear that these brands are massively popular with the majority of people. Not only are they part of everyday life, but they utilize the powerful word of mouth model sales method that has to be the oldest one known to man (and woman). As these companies grow and develop they will find new ways to increase their sophistication in regards to selling, and long term profits may well soar. For investors in at the ground level today there may be some significant returns in the future. Twitter and other social networking investments should be considered fairly risky but as part of a portfolio, for the long-haul, they may well pay off.

My Stay-At-Home Wife Has It Harder Than I Do

50s-wife-list-11

By Matt Melone

A strong marriage is contingent on sharing the workload–not just in the house but everywhere. This past summer I worked as an intern at Google and had a long commute. I left at the crack of dawn most mornings and returned home around 7pm.

My wife, Rachel, on the other hand, is a stay-at-home mom. She took care of our 18-month-old each day. I think much of the “Lean In” thinking today would suggest Rachel perhaps had opted out of the workplace too young and taken an easier route. Those people have never stayed home with a toddler all day.. everyday.

Last month, I gave Rachel a weekend completely off parenting duties by going out of town with Jude. In those days, unsupported by any other caregiver, my son nearly broke me. He’s a fantastic kid, but he does get cranky, have trouble sleeping and can be as willful as any other 18-month-old. I was exhausted, and the experience gave me a newfound respect for all stay-at-home moms, and especially single parents (I don’t know how you do it!).

Get yourself a Fringed Burlap tablecloth!

My point is that this summer when I was working, Rachel had it WAY, WAY harder than me. Too many working dads (and working moms, for that matter) don’t fully appreciate the sheer exhaustion of watching a cranky child (let alone multiple children) day in and day out.

Conventional wisdom suggests my wife should be grateful to me for slaving long days at the office and permitting her to relax at home. We’ve largely internalized the 1950s portrait of a husband coming home to be greeted by his adoring wife and a roasted chicken dinner as something ideal and fair–if not something we routinely practice.

When I come home, I strive to give my wife the chance to put her feet up. Cleaning up diapers, preparing meals, cleaning and responding to the beck and call of our son is a full-time job with no coffee breaks or pauses to read the news or check email.

A large amount of hostility also comes from moms working outside the home. Being a parent is challenging enough without us disparaging each other. When husbands and our society in general better value the work stay-at-home-moms do, we are all better off. That respect helps improve relationships, makes the parenting work feel a little easier, facilitates more equitable household divisions of labor, and accords the proper level of appreciation to motherhood.

If you’re a stay-at-home mom, you know full well the pressures of raising kids without extended family or good friends around. My wife and I created familygroups.org to match moms to other parents in their communities and help them find local family activities, groups and cool places. If you ever wished you had more support as a parent, check it out.

Autumn: It’s The Perfect Time To Network

Who doesn’t love the Fall? It is the perfect time for BBQs, picnics and seeing the leaves change in the mountains. But did you also know that it is the ideal time for networking? Don’t think the only thing you can do during the Fall is rake leaves – there’s actually a lot you can do for your small business. Try some of our helpful tips, and soon you’ll be networking all summer long.

Be prepared to network. Its easier to be prepared to network than you might think it is. You’ll need three things:

One thing you’ll need is an “elevator speech” that describes what your company does and what you do. An elevator speech is both short and sweet, aim for a few sentences long and something that is a bit catchy and memorable. Yes, you’ll want to practice this and even try to write a few drafts of it to actually get it exactly the way you want it.

Elevator Speech

You’ll also need to carry a few business cards and/or your cellphone where you go while you are having Autumn fun. Don’t neglect the importance of being able to hand someone a business card, even though lots of folks do like to exchange info electronically. They may not have their cell  handy, and you might want to jot something down on your business card for them.

Have the attitude that you are open to network – wherever you go. Now this doesn’t mean you are thinking about business 24/7 while you enjoy your kid’s football game. But if you wind up chatting with one of the parents and it turns out they need a product or service you offer, the opportunity is there for you – and you don’t let it pass you by. Just be open to the possibility.

Networking

Now that you know what you’ll need to be prepared to network, let’s talk about some of the opportunities that may come your way. Autumn is one of the most social seasons we have during the year. Few can resist the call of the more mild weather months. Lots of us spend time outside enjoying enjoying cooler weather. Even those who log long hours in the office, are trying to get out early on Fridays to enjoy the weather before winter comes again.

Here are a few places you may connect with people to network:

  • On vacation. I was once quite surprised while taking a vacation about a thousand miles away, to be seated across from someone who lived only a few towns away from me! Don’t laugh, because this sort of thing can happen. But even if geography doesn’t smile on you while you are on vacation, more and more businesses are doing business nationally and even internationally. That great couple you meet on a cruise could lead to a business connection. Or the family you get to know at the next campsite could turn out to be a business you wind up partnering with for a project.
  • Athletic events. Fall is one of the busiest times, when charity walks, community athletic events and kids’ sports plan events. This could be the ideal way you connect with someone who turns out to be a helpful business connection. Whether they are someone who is interested in your products and services or they are someone who can be a good resource for you, these events are often filled with people connected to your local community.
  • Kids’ camps. Whether your child goes to sleep away camp or day camp, chances are you will get to know the other families with kids at this camp. Many who send their kid to camp send them to the same camp year after year. So probably you will see them each and every year, it is a great way to get to know people. This could lead to successful business connections for you.

Enjoy the Autumn weather – and be open to the business connections that come your way!

Top Emergency Items To Keep On Yourself At All Times

You never know when something will go wrong, whether it be a natural disaster, blackout or even if you find yourself lost in the woods. You should always keep a few items on you to ensure you’ll be prepared for any event. There is nothing worse than being unprepared.

Here are a few survival items that I suggest having on yourself for when something goes wrong:

Swiss Army Knife

The Swiss Army knife is a classic survival/multi tool that has been trusted by many people for many years. This is one of the best things to have on your person at all times because of its multifunctional nature. From knife to scissors, tweezers, screwdriver and more. The Swiss Army Knife has it all. Learn more about the Swiss Army Knife by checking out what Wikipedia has to say about it.

Para-cord Survival Bracelet

The great thing about a paracord bracelet is its many uses and the ability of it to fit comfortably on your wrist. You can use a para-cord bracelet for fishing line, replacement shoe string, belt, suspenders and for building snares. In short, paracords are probably the most versatile tool on this list.

Fire Source

It’s always good to have some sort of fire source on hand, whether it be matches or a lighter. I personally prefer carrying a lighter on myself at all times. I think they are more efficient than matches as you can get more fire from one source and a lighter will still work if it gets wet.

Cash

Should you be caught in a power outage situation the ability to purchase supplies would be compromised if your only means was that of a credit or debit card. So it’s always a good idea to have some cash on you should you need to buy emergency food, water or gasoline.

Flash Light

I consider having a light source, such as a flashlight, different than a fire source. You wouldn’t want to waste fuel from your fire source to see in the dark. Also, a flashlight is specifically designed for navigation in the dark as a lighter or match won’t project a light source in one specific direction. I suggest investing in a small LED key chain flashlight. They’re small but have a powerful light source.

Water Bottle

Water is probably the most important item on this list and one of the most crucial items to have in any scenario where things have gone wrong. It doesn’t take long for the human body to become dehydrated and once the process of dehydration begins, is when things get dangerous. You can only go about 3 days without water before you die and 3 days is really pushing it. A danger that comes with dehydration is desperation. People tend to become desperate when they need water and will often times give in to drinking dirty, contaminated water that will lead to a whole other set of problems. So always carry a water bottle, especially when headed out for hikes.

The Future Is Almost Here: Printers May Soon Create Living Human Organs

Medical technology is now advancing at such a breathtaking pace that new technologies can seem like visions from a distant future — or even like magic. Consider a machine, a humble printer, that is able to create living human organs, cell by cell. Even the scientists working on the project acknowledge that it sounds like something lifted out of the pages of a science-fiction novel.

3d-printer

Printing human organs

The technology of the organ-creating “bio printer” is not all that different from the technology we see every day in ink-jet printers when they deposit ink on a page to create words, according to Dr. Gabor Forgacs of the University of Missouri-Columbia, who described the process in a videotaped interview.

The bio printer deposits “bio ink” particles on special “bio paper.” Each bio ink particle consists of 10,000 to 30,000 individual cells, taken from the original living organ that will be duplicated in the printing process.

The printer places the particles drop-by-drop onto the paper in the shape of the organ that is being built. The cells fuse to each other in a natural self-organizing process that creates more complex living tissue, which in turn will become one layer of the new organ.

The printer builds the organ layer by layer, with each layer of cells being separated from the ones beneath it by a piece of bio-paper. Eventually the bio-paper dissolves, and the natural self-organizing process causes the cell layers to fuse together into a 3-dimensional structure.

In order to give a patient a new organ now, doctors have to transplant an organ from another person, which creates two serious problems. First, there is a severe shortage of organs available for transplant. Patients can be on waiting lists for years and, in fact, may never receive the organs they need to survive. Second is the problem of organ rejection, when the organ recipient’s body tries to destroy tissue that it does not recognize as its own.

If organ printing becomes an everyday reality, as scientists predict it soon will, both of these problems will be solved. The ability to simply copy someone’s existing organ will eliminate the need for patients to have to wait on long lines for a donor. The problem of organ rejection will also be eliminated because the cells used to create a patient’s new organ will come from that patient him- or herself. The cells will contain the patient’s own DNA, which will prevent the immune system from attacking the new organ as a foreign object.

When will this happen?

The technology is already in place to print living human tissue. Dr. Forgacs estimates that the ability to print entire organs directly into human bodies will occur during our lifetimes.

The Methuselah Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports and encourages scientific research to extend healthy human life, thinks that organ regeneration may happen very soon — within a dozen years. The Foundation recently announced a NewOrgan Prize to be awarded to scientists who successfully duplicate and transplant a fully-functioning organ made from a patient’s own cells by the year 2025.

It takes more than scientists

Donors will provide the funding for the NewOrgan Prize, and the amount of the prize will grow as more donations come in. Donors, both large and small, are essential to the ability of organizations, such as the Methuselah Foundation and the SENS Research Foundation, another non-profit that funds research into regenerative medicine, to provide the level of support for research that can make these life-changing technologies become realities within less than a generation.

Peter Thiel, the co-founder and former CEO of PayPal, donated $3.5 million to support the work of the non-profit Methuselah and SENS Foundations along with Justin Bonomo, Sam Harris, and Jason Hope. In the for-profit sector, Larry Page, co-founder of Google, recently announced that he is creating a new Google firm, named Calico, that will focus on aging and illness.

You don’t have to be a company founder like Peter Thiel or Larry Page to support this innovative research. Easy ways to contribute to the Methuselah Foundation’s work include using a Foundation-branded credit card, donating an unwanted vehicle, or even buying t-shirts, hats and other merchandise with the Foundation’s logo. Volunteers are also needed, especially those having experience in engineering, web design, graphic arts, copywriting, fundraising, public relations and marketing.

With the current rapid pace of research, supported by the Foundations and their donors and volunteers, life-extending medical breakthroughs are likely to benefit not only future generations, but also ourselves in ways that are hard to imagine now.

How To Keep Your Car Connected To The Internet

connected-car

Staying connected to the Internet and each other has gotten easier with every passing year. Pagers let people talk when it was too inconvenient to speak on the phone. Smartphones let professionals check their e-mail around-the-clock. Tablets allow us to get online even when we’re away from a laptop. It’s no wonder that the latest advances in technology can even keep your car plugged in. These advances don’t just bridge the gap between you and the rest of the world, but they also help you stay more in tune with your vehicle.

What is an Internet-connected Vehicle?

The Internet-connected car is different than you’re probably imagining. It’s not necessarily about getting onto Google as you navigate sharp turns – that technology sort of exists already, and distracting drivers more than they already are isn’t a great goal. Instead, Internet-connected cars are all about making your driving experience better and more customized than before by being able to communicate with your vehicle when you’re away from it.

Ever-Changing Technology

There are two technological conundrums that go hand-in-hand with Internet-connected cars: how do people who haven’t bought a new car in several years get up-to-date and will today’s car technology still work as smartphones become more advanced? For some car owners, figuring out how to create some type of Internet account and pair their phone with their car is a tall order. The more embedded the technology is in the car, the easier it will be for consumers to use. The second problem is a little more difficult to solve – in the fifteen years that a driver may have their car, they could go through seven different phones, all with better and better apps and integration options. The car’s technology won’t be updating so frequently, though, which means customers won’t remain happy as time goes on. A solution hasn’t been found for this issue yet, but the car company that figures it out will likely dominate the market.

Two Phone Apps for Your Car

Viper SmartStart 3.0

The Viper SmartStart 3.0 is a smartphone app that can be installed on Android, iPhone and Blackberry phones. The app connects to the Cloud and is able to start and warm up your car on a schedule. The app can also tell you your vehicle’s status, including GPS location; if it’s running, armed or locked; and if there’s engine trouble. With auxiliary channels, the app can interact with your car to roll down the windows, open the sunroof and turn on the radio.

Con-verse Automotive Bluetooth Handsfree System

The Con-verse Automotive Bluetooth Handsfree System works with your iPhone’s Siri voice application so that you don’t even have to take your phone out of your pocket (or purse) to get online while driving. The Con-verse connects to your iPhone to give you call and text notifications and to let you update your social media accounts.

Working Out the Details

There are a few areas of connecting cars to the Internet that even the biggest car companies are struggling with. One is how to make every person in the car comfortable, from the driver to the passengers. After all, the person who’s operating the car has very different technological needs than the person who’s just along for the ride. Another is how to figure out what drivers want and how to deliver that – or something close to it – without making driving dangerous. Lastly, there’s a major question of privacy – just because so much information can be obtained from a car, that doesn’t necessarily mean that detailed vehicle information should be transferred across the Cloud.

#KeepitDangerous! Marathon: Can LinkedIn REALLY Help Build My Business?

LinkedIn-Logo

Since social media has come to prominence over the past 10 years, the delineation between the different social media platforms has become more and more definite.  Facebook is basically the Google of social media while Twitter is very close with it’s main point of attraction being that it’s a quick-and-easy instant gratification platform with a huge potential audience.  Google Plus has made a bit of a dent, though it’s no real threat to Facebook, while LinkedIn has proven to be a trusted and powerful social media resource for business and business networking.

LinkedIn has been called the social media for professionals. While still a social media site, it is a wealth of opportunity for companies as well. Geared towards businesses and professionals, the focus is different from other social media sites. The objectives of people who create profiles on LinkedIn are goal oriented rather than socially aimed. Businesses have the benefit of connecting with a large audience without having to swim through the ocean of social fluff. There are key factors to building your business through LinkedIn.

Become a Presence

Building your business requires more awareness and visibility. With over 187 million users, LinkedIn can provide an excellent platform to increase your customer base and share information about your business. Once you list your business on LinkedIn it is important to create a company page and update it regularly with your business activity. Also, employees of your business can link to the company page to create a better company profile.

LinkedIn Groups is another way to both be more visible. Often times, people searching for a specific type of business will search the LinkedIn groups that are related to their searches. By joining those groups, your business will appear. They are also an excellent way to communicate with customers, colleagues, and others within your field. You have a connection to the latest news and talk that could be important to your business.

Networking

The saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” can often be true. Networking can be an essential tool to building your business. The valuable contacts you make on LinkedIn can range from people in the same business, people who are looking for businesses, people who can help your business, to an excellent pool to draw from if looking for new employees. People who see a business that is well connected will often times want to connect with you also.

Up-to-Date Information

Keeping on top of the latest news, reviews, information, and chatter focusing on your business field can help give your business the edge. The latest news can be available through LinkedIn’s Signal can provide you with live feed filtered by keywords, connections, businesses, industries, and networks. Get only the news you are interested in, instead of having to sort through vast amounts of information to find information you can use.

With many options for how to best use LinkedIn, you can customize how your company is viewed, and how you view others. Utilizing the free tools available, you can be as involved as you choose to be. The more active you are on the site, the more benefits your business can gain. This is one social media network that can truly help your business.

#KeepitDangerous! Marathon: 5 Things You Can Do Before Your Doctor’s Appointment To Maximize Your Visit

doctor

If you’re the type of person who spends the time leading up to your doctor visits riddled with anxiety, you are not alone. I cannot recall the last time I visited a doctor’s office feeling collected and confident. Alternatively, some may feel so relieved to find shelter against the uncertainty of their ailments that they breeze through the exam, nodding politely, without asking half the questions they want to.

Neither of those scenarios lead to a very valuable doctor’s visit. Health and lifestyle magazines have leaned on “tips for maximizing your doctor visit” articles for years, but what about things you should be doing to prepare before you even get there?

Finding the right physicians

In order to feel like your appointment is valuable, it’s important to first make sure that you are at a facility that’s a good match for you. Visiting multiple doctors until you find one with whom you feel totally comfortable is the first step in getting the most value out of primary care. You need to be in a situation where you feel no embarrassment in full-disclosure. This means honesty about everything from your level of anxiety to your level of carelessness about your symptoms or health. Your doctor’s familiarity with the little nuances that may not be on a chart can make all the difference in making a quick and accurate diagnosis.

Be very clear when scheduling an appointment.

If the person scheduling your appointment is under the impression that you’re stopping in for something simple, there’s a chance they will schedule you in a shorter slot. It’s best to be forthright when making an appointment so your doctor has more information going in and you don’t end up being rushed.

It’s all about lists.

There have been times when I’ve gone to my yearly physical at Piedmont Family Practice thinking “Oh, good. This will be the perfect opportunity to ask about that thing that’s been driving me crazy.” Still, I almost always make it back home and smack myself for forgetting to bring it up. The best solution for keeping track of these issues is by keeping a running list. Every time a health issue arises that isn’t important enough to schedule an appointment for, make a note about it. Even if it passes, it may still be worth asking your physician about. When you’re at your next appointment, bring your list with you. You can ask about everything or prioritize the items that you feel are most important to talk about.

Bring your medical history.

It really is important to have some record of your medical history on you when you go to the doctor, especially medication that you are taking. You can expect for a nurse to grill you about the dosage and frequency of each medication. You want to be able to answer these questions as clearly and accurate as possible. If you think toting a zip-lock bag of pill bottles to the doctor is for The Golden Girls, there are actually apps for your smart phone that help keep track of your medication and medical history.

Use the web (carefully).

Yes, typing your symptoms into Google can take you from an in-grown toenail to death’s door in less than two clicks, but it can also help you inform your doctor about how you’re feeling. If you are able to get your head around the more obvious conclusions from your symptoms based on your research, you may be able to fast forward the conversation you’ll have with your primary care physician.

How Potential Employers Can Use Google To Research You

google-zip

Use of the Internet by Potential Employers

With the increase of use of the Internet by businesses, the process of recruitment of employees has expanded from local print listings and traditional processes to the much faster and efficient Internet search. Any potential employer worth his salt has realized the value of conducting a thorough research to find out what type of person he or she employing. This research, usually done through Google encompasses many aspects of the potential employee that the employer is interested in. This employee aspects or traits vary from one employer to the other depending on the type of job he or she is recruiting for. The employer who is mostly a human resource manager might simply want to know what is the perspective of the employees in the field upon which he is recruiting for. The potential employer may also want to know more specific things about a certain individual who is a potential employee. The employer may for instance want to know your views and opinions about the industry you work in, the employer may want to get an idea of your work ethic, The employer might even want to research your social connections and past work relations for potential warning signs that may lead to qualification from consideration. All this research in its depths and breaths is done with Google search yielding different results as explained in the following paragraphs.

A typical employee research by a Business starts by typing the employees name in the search engine box to see what it will yield. For clever potential employees with a bit of knowledge about search engines optimization, a personal website will probably pop up on the top results. This is a way for individual to market themselves as professionals above all while giving a good first impression to the potential Employer.

The next step for the employer is to search for professionals in a certain locality in which the potential employee is from. The potential employer is trying to get a picture of how well known you ARE known as an expert in your field in your current locality. This search may expand to a wider area to gauge your credibility among the community you are in.

The research then proceeds to very popular business networking sites such as linked in, Monster.com and the like. Here, the employer gauges your on line visibility, who recommends you for a certain skill set and what is your clout among fellow colleagues in your field of expertise.
A Google search is also done on your email address, and potential pseudonyms or nicknames, to see what sites it will yield. Depending on how you have set up you social networking accounts such as Facebook and twitter an analysis of your social connections may be done to get a picture of who you are and what your work related opinions are.

Research also done by searching keywords on an employees CV. This may yield an on-line CV that may be used to check consistency between the one presented to the employer and the one posted on-line.

A Google search is finally done on the job posting itself, if the company had advertised a job opening. Comments, and other digital data might be traced to the potential employee t gauge his or her commitment to the job.

This are not all Google research methods but they are the main ones.

The name itself has a very tingling ring to it. It’s the mobile version of The Hype Machine and is based loosely on the concept of the parent website. Being a music discovery app, it ranks the various songs on their availability and their popularity. The more number of times the song is played, the higher the rank it gets on the music app’s charts.

8. Jango:
Like its parent website, the mobile version is also pretty trendy. Functioning on the lines of Pandora and Spotify, it provides users great utility in terms of the music options available and people can tune into their favorite stations any time of the day.

9. Audiogalaxy
It incorporates the streaming capacity well within the app. Available for Apple users only, Audiogalaxy resembles the iPod layout and provides the user with an ease of access and utility. The music is not stored on your device and you need to upload all your songs via a web interface. All in all, it’s an excellent music app.

10. mSpot Music:
An extended version of iTunes available for all the Apple users out there. It streams the music onto your device, allowing you the play your favorite songs as and when you want it. It’s free and it makes ripples in the app world.

So which app are you choosing today?
