Startmail gave me two companion accounts to give away with the subscription. Rather than waste them by just forwarding the links to people who may not be tech savvy enough to use them, I figured I would post them to the blog, although I do think the service is great for those who are not tech savvy either.Read More
Yelp is at it again. They clearly don’t like bloggers, especially ones who refuse to participate in their Yelp programs, scamming small business’s out of thousands of dollars every year. A recent email from Yelp, which I found in the trash, states I will have to change my profile pic before I can talk to customers. Apparently they require a “REAL” photo of me. Really Yelp?
Most people I talked to about the new Messenger app were outraged that Facebook has access to everything on their phones so everyone is now a privacy expert and going around encouraging each other to delete the Facebook Messenger app.
“Privacy Experts” agree that the app has access to your camera, photo’s, your location data, everything you post to Facebook, all your contacts info and all your personal info which users themselves freely give up. How did this happen!?!?!?Read More
Not nearly as popular as the #ALSIceBucketChallenge, the #NoIceBucketChallenge will really make you think… Why am I pouring Ice Water over my head? Are we aware that the entire state of California is in a drought? Children in Africa have to walk 3 miles or more for their bucket of water? Hey, are we just doing this to get out of donating???Read More
I have been doing Social Media consulting with small business’s on Long Island for about 3 years now. There are many, many, many options for Digital Marketing and Yelp is just one of those options. The only problem with Yelp is that I have always been able to prove I cannot get a return on investment (ROI)

Really impressed with the pics I got from a recent walk thru of the Apple Store in Grand Central Terminal this week. The Grand Central Apple store opened back in 2011. I have been here before but never realized how LARGE it is! I’ve read it’s the third biggest Apple Store. Apple employees state it’s the biggest in North America. At around 23,000 feet it’s pretty impressive!
I used to post every Sunday morning but lately I just seem to get up and go to wherever my calendar tells me to go. Have not posted much at all lately. This morning I’m free! And realized I had recently found time to post 2 new video’s to YouTube,Read More
There coming! Google Hotspots have been spotted on Long Island and they’re fast! Here’s a screenshot of the speed test I did on the one I found. It’s comparable to my home Hi-Speed WiFi.Read More
Here is my latest coverage with the Epoch Times, a Chinese Language media giant based in Times Square just down the block from another media giant, Telemundo. My Cameo is at 1:40.Read More
This past weekend was about the 6th straight weekend I have practically disappeared from “The Net” despite having the latest and greatest gadget in my back pocket. Disconnecting… something I have struggled within in the distant past but have learned how to masterRead More
This may be the first of many blog postings regarding moving from a Google product. Although I have always been a fan of Google’s “Don’t Be Evil” mantra, especially since I am not a fan of Facebook, the recent news that Google has updated its terms of service to officially state they scan and keep everything will make me move on from any free Google services. Google’s latest official response regarding their products: “Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as customized… Read More
It’s a rare Weekend posting in my little “Long Island” category of the blog. Just a little something I snapped from the phone that I wanted to share…
Another late night of catching up on the latest news in the tech world and I come across this story. It got a little attention in some tech communities but somehow I missed it. When you put this story together with some of the other story’s going on in the world, it’s a pretty big story…
The Winter Olympics are back and this year it’s in beautiful, Sunny and warm Sochi Russia but the real story is always about the MEXICAN WINTER OLYMPIC TEAM! 4 years ago I did an in depth review of the Mexican Winter Olympic team. It’s 1 guy, Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe and I wrote about him here. He won nothing and I believe he came in 2nd to last at the one event he was in. But now he’s BACK! And at 55 years old he’s still as flamboyant as ever. This isn’t… Read More
If you’re a longtime internet user like myself you may have come across this feeling. In the early days of blogging many of us old school bloggers would start up our own personal blogs, setup an RSS feed that readers, mostly other bloggers, could subscribe to and whenever something new was posted we would read each others posts and comment in each others comment sections.
