Are you overwhelmed with Apps and services

We all know the line, "there's an app for that!"  In a society that is ruled by apps and online services that can cater to almost anything in our lives, it is easy to become overwhelmed with what to use,  where to turn, etc.    Even trying a new anything requires you to enter an email address and fill out a form so that they can send crap to your email address.  Now you have hours of going thru emails that really aren't important, even you think that are.  So you make another email address to receive all of these spam type communiqué from companies you don't care about.  You know that you aren't going to check it, so they stay there, clogging up the servers.  Where is the good solution?  Leave your thoughts down below.


Many people are moving their computing solutions to the mobile market with Smart phones and tablets.  Does this solution work for everyone??  Definitely not, however there is something to be said for not having to worry about your data being lost on your hard drive.

Is there still a market for in-dash car radios?

With all the technology that we have available to us, I am left wondering why we still use some of the older technology. For example, in dash car radios.  It is completely possible to eliminate some of the out of date items that we use on a day to day basis.  There are many people that have completely ditched their car radios for Ipads, or ipad minis.  This is the direction that should be taken, however there is one caveat to this approach, no terrestrial radio on these devices.  The only device that has been afforded the ability of fm radio is the Ipod nano, but the Ipad nano is not logical for use as the infotainment system in your car.  Another possibility is the Iphone.  it is possible to connect your IOS device to your car radio but that is just a temporary fix to the overall problem of lack of forward motion.  The problem isn't that the world is not ready for it, most people have ditched their landlines for cellphone only house phones.  In my house we do not have a landline.  It doesn't make sense to pay for a device and service that is only used occasionally when we already pay for a solution that we have with us all the time already.  The problem is the companies that produce these devices. Now, dont get me wrong, I understand the reason for being in business is to make money but at what cost?  I believe that the world is ready to ditch the in car radio for a simpler version, like their smart phones.   WHat do you think??

Facebook buys instagram?

So Facebook is going to buy instagram, there are many people on both sides of the fence on this one. Lots of people are excited for the merger because ....well honestly I'm still trying to figure it out. Personally I only used instagram once, and I didn't see the appeal. To me it was just another photo social app. Now Facebook is getting a hold of instagram, is Facebook going the way of MySpace? Is it time to ditch Facebook and make the move to google+? As I did when I made the move to Facebook? With all the privacy concerns that Facebook had gathered over the years. It might be time to move to something a little more fresh.

Release day!!! For the iPad?

Today apple released the iPad. You may be asking yourself, didn't they already do that? Well yes they did, but this is the new iPad , not the iPad three, post down below if you got one or if you have had hands on time with it. Which leaves the question, was the new iPad amazing enough for you to upgrade? Or will you be getting the iPad 2 because the price is better or were you waiting for the third version to come out to get one?

Hacking attacks and the future...

In the past six months or so there have been an increasing number of organizations and websites that have gotten hacked.  The most recent being Microsoft, who according to reports, did not have the passwords of the users encrypted.  If major corporations are getting hacked, what hope is there for the rest of us?  The frequency of these attacks seem to be getting shorter and shorter.  Not to be cliche` but if you have ever seen the last Die Hard movie, there seems to be a lot of parallels.  What if all these attacks are leading up to something bigger?  How can we protect ourselves?  Most major technology sector companies have released some form of a cloud storage system.  Does this not seem like a really bad place to keep ALL of our sensitive data.  The Macbook Air is an amazing step in computing technology, but where does all of you data get stored?  In most cases, the answer is "In the cloud".  Are the days of large hard drives, and locally stored data behind us?  If this is the path that will take us into the future, What are companies like Apple and Microsoft doing to stay a step ahead of the penetration attacks?  Leave your thoughts below.  Until Next time, keep it real!!
