Change is imminent in all aspects of life thanks to technology.
No matter what avenue of life you’re in, the developments of technology have somehow had an impact on your life in one way or another. Some are minor (the ability to call transportation with the touch of a button) and some are major (the fact that your cell phone is now a computer).
Of course, one of the biggest advances in technology come in an avenue that we’re all affected in; the medical field. These have had a positive impact on the world we live in. Access to information on certain diseases and cures can be found with some savvy search engine research. The devices physicians and nurses have access to have helped improved overall health over the past decade or so.
However, they’ve also brought some negative effects, most notably the cost.
“Health care spending in the U.S. continues to rise. It’s now over $3.5 trillion...
After moving into its new office a few months ago, DevDigital hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Dec. 12 for its new location on the third floor of the Tennessee Education Association building. Over 100 people attended the ceremony, including members of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce who oversaw the ribbon cutting.
DevDigital made the move from its last space at the historic Berger Building on Rosa L. Parks Blvd in August after spending close to six years there. However, as the company began to grow and accumulate more clients, employees, and projects, it was a necessity for DevDigital to make the change to its current site.
Located right down the road from the heart of Germantown and First Tennessee Park, the office space features six meeting rooms, a spacious work area for project managers, a full kitchen, and an open lobby. In addition to DevDigital, the location is also home...
Subscription-based businesses are everywhere now.
Do most of your home-cooked meals revolve around Blue Apron or Home Chef? Have you created a playlist on Spotify? Do you read The Athletic daily?
All of those businesses are just a few of the leading catalysts for today’s model of paying for access to content and product.
Book publishers and periodicals in the 17th century were believed to be the first to implement this model. Today, there are a bevy of businesses and websites that follow this standard, and it continues to be a way for businesses to capitalize on revenue growth. In 2016, the subscription-based market boomed by more than 100 percent over five years. The biggest retailers who followed the model produced more than $2.6 billion, up from $57 million in 2011.
So, why have businesses who abide by this standard suddenly become so prevalent and successful?
For starters, clients...
We’re reaching the inevitable point of the year where the Thanksgiving meal is finished, and our attention is now focused on completing our holiday shopping lists.
Although a recent study from Citi Retail Services says that 73 percent of shoppers plan to purchase gifts in-store, 57 percent say they’ll also make purchases this holiday season on a computer, and 42 percent will make acquisitions on a mobile device. Needless to say, technology has played a big part in how we shop for the holidays and will continue to do so in the future.
If you’re about to embark on your holiday shopping expeditions in the coming weeks, here are a few helpful tips on how technology can make things less stressful.

Last week, many parts of the world celebrated Diwali, the Hindu lights festival that spans over a five-day period and coincides with the Hindu New Year. It’s a celebration of light over darkness and good over evil.
Many of our friends and coworkers in our Vadodara office celebrated Diwali and shared their experiences with us. Here’s what they had to say:
“It was my daughter's first Diwali! We celebrated along with my paternal family. My family was very excited especially my grandparents as they were celebrating the first Diwali with their great-granddaughter.
I tried my hands on Rangoli, which came out to be pretty well as a beginner. The days were spent following our family custom of doing "pooja", visiting temple and spending time with family.
In a nutshell, it was a complete blast of fun with family.” -Rahul Upadhyay
“Diwali is one of the most awaited festival in India. It...
Ever wish you knew the price you’d get for something before you took it into a shop to sell it?
Sometimes it’s a painful process because you want to get the most bang for your buck of said item, despite it not holding any significant value to you anymore.
Those trying to sell catalytic converters also run into this problem.
For those unfamiliar, a catalytic converter (usually known as a catcon) is “a device used to reduce the toxicity of emissions from an internal combustion engine.” Introduced in 1975, these converters are still commonly used in cars and other various engine-equipped machines (trucks, buses, trains, etc.). And guess what, there’s some serious money in these things!
The folks at Belanger Recycling have a solution to make sure their freelancers get the right amount of money for their finds with a process that’s also time efficient.
