Data Madness

  Around a quarter of Americans fill out a NCAA March Madness bracket to be a part of the exciting college basketball tournament. However, the average American is not necessarily an expert in predicting the outcome of games. How could one predict that No. 3 Tennessee Vols would lose to a No. 11 team in the last seconds and not even make it to the Sweet Sixteen?! Most will rely on the following when completing a bracket: choose their favorite teams, choose the team with players they enjoy to watch, or choose a team based on their national ranking going into the tournament. Although your bracket may already be busted, there is some technology that you can lean on next year to help you have the winning bracket amongst your family, friends, and colleagues!   This year, Adobe launched #HackTheBracket to give March Madness participants a free tool to help them predict the winners of each...

Client Spotlight - Time Miner

  What is Time Miner? Time Miner is a mobile app designed for professionals who bill for their time and use their smartphones to talk and text with clients. Prior to Time Miner, the only way to keep up with your billable time on your smartphone was to make real-time notes, scroll through your phone records at billing time, or later try to remember the calls and texts you had with your clients. Time Miner eliminates those ineffective and inconvenient methods to save you time. How Does Time Miner work? To begin using the app, simply add your clients to Time Miner, and the app will find your past calls and texts with your clients on demand. Time Miner also produces a report that sorts the data by client including the following: when the calls occurred, how long they lasted, and how much the call is worth, based on your hourly rate. There’s no longer a need to keep up with your billable...

The Tech Behind Stephen Hawking

  On March 14, 2018, the world lost Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of our time. Hawking explained the universe to the masses and pioneered many discoveries concerning quantum gravity, general relativity, and cosmology. Although Stephen Hawking spent half of a century in a wheelchair due to ALS, he continued to research and share his discoveries with the world with the help of assistive technology. With assistive technology, Hawking could lead a more independent life that allowed him to continue to share his remarkable ideas with the world. In 1985, Stephen Hawking lost his ability to speak, but this did not slow down his desire to communicate his ideas to the world. He began communicating by raising his eyebrows to certain letters on a card to spell out words. This process of selecting letters to form words was eventually developed into a computer-based communication. ...

Understanding Blockchain

Cryptocurrencies have continued to gain popularity over the past couple of years. Some popular cryptocurrencies that you may have heard about in the media are BitCoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Zcash and Ripple to name a few. Needless to say, there are new cryptocurrencies emerging everyday. While the emergence of this new form of currency is exciting, the thing that is really grabbing people’s attention is the technology that makes cryptocurrencies possible: Blockchain. To understand the basics of Blockchain, consider the following analogy. William Mougayer explains in his book, The Business Blockchain, that Blockchain is similar to a Google doc. In a Google doc, two users can work on a document simultaneously as opposed to working on a Microsoft Word document. Changes are continuously updated for everyone to view in a Google doc without the hassle of opening the doc, editing, and sending...

Search Engine Optimization Rules Are Changing Again

75% of people don’t scroll past the first page of search results. Search engine leads have a whopping 14.6% close rate, and 70% to 80% of people skip straight to organic results, ignoring paid ads completely.  Needless to say, you probably already know all of that. You already know how important landing within the first ten results of a Google search is for your business. You know how that can help your business generate passive traffic, leads, and conversions. That’s why you’ve spent the last year trying to either climb your way through the rankings or maintain your current position. However, 2018 is going to be filled with some things you might not know about search engine rules. In particular, the following concepts are leading the pack in 2018: video is going to rule content creation, voice search will start to find its footing, and mobile results will take priority.
