There are several things you can do, a few minor improvements in your daily habits can mean major changes in your ability to focus and be more productive. Here's what you can do....

Turn your phone into an Android

Time for an upgrade? What kind of phone do you have now? Maybe you even have 2 cell phones, one is a spare phone for using with another telecommunications network or for talking to people you label “unlimited”. Perhaps you still have a trusty monochromatic phone that is very reliable but so worn, torn and old that it is in dire need of a “retirement”. It could be time to consider getting a breath of fresh technology and take a peek at some lively new colorful touchscreen cell phones that have multiple uses; such as your unending media player, digital videocamera for social sharing on facebook, break-time entertainment gaming device, office voice recorder for reviewing gossip, and the ever dependable but annoying alarm clock, all-in-one. There are more features packed in the newest line of phones available now than in your locker or briefcase, man-bag or purse. With so many newfangled tech features to choose from, sometimes it may seem overwhelming. Let’s get those t

I just made my first Android application using Google App Inventor.

Image via Wikipedia The new software "Google Application Inventor" for Android is so easy, even kids can use it! Well that's because the programming language software was built with kids in mind. The interface uses objects and graphics that remind me of Lego building blocks and jigsaw puzzle pieces, it has some advanced capabilities to play around with. I've finished the 2 tutorial applications that Google had prepared to familiarize myself with the basics. So far it's fun, and very intuitive. I like the way code is represented visually and I believe all types of users will be able to make their own Android Apps when it is fully released to the general public.

If you do this, you will become more successful. If not, you will waste years living in regret. What is it?

It's something that will accelerate your success by raising your awareness and giving you knowledge that can change your life for the better. Knowing this you can then become more aware of what you want. Then you will know what's stopping you from getting it, afterward you can learn how to overcome the obstacles that prevent you from getting it, so that you can go out there and finally get it! Get it? What is it? The answer to that question is...

Social Gaming in the future

Image via Wikipedia There's a whole lot of fun in store for the future! With some of the top internet and media companies vying to win the battle for your leisure time. Who will be the king of social gaming? Will it be Apple, Disney, or Google? Maybe a smaller business will come up with sometime new, or perhaps Zynga with their super popular line up of games like farmville will be the next big social site. Several big businesses have noticed that the next big idea in the development of the social internet is connected to games. Gamers especially the casual ones are now a huge market to cater too. What used to be the domain of young kids and teenage boys are now the new medium for interacting especially after the popularity of casual games on Facebook. Now even more women and people in the 30+ age bracket are joining in on the fun and...

Google invests in new search software that predicts the future

Yes the future is now predictable! Google invested in a company called Recorded Future that has "Temporal Analytics" software. And it looks like the future of search engines is now here. The people at Recorded Future  and their software can help predict the future by looking at vast information from the internet and free data from the past to analyze specific points in time that can assist us in important time-based decision making. This can be very profitable in financial forecasting, it can also help with security in terrorism, following safety in weather tracking and in following political timelines that even the CIA uses. Their blog is very interesting, it takes samples of trends in search topics like company IPO's for managing risk in wealth building for the finance industry. While hot topics like wars can also be used for tracing events leading to terrorist attacks. In newspapers like USA Today or the Wall Street Journal , you can track interesting topics or brea

Even kids can make mobile apps with the new Google App Inventor

Google has a new project called " App Inventor " for the Android . It is a new software development tool that gives ordinary people the chance to create mobile applications easily and quickly. By giving people the ability to make their own apps, Google will open the gates of software development at all levels of creativity regardless of age, programming knowledge, or technical savvy. The simple interface allows an everyday user without and advanced programming knowledge to build a program from scratch. In fact it is so simple to use, that children can use it, and it was developed in consideration of the fact that most people have basic knowledge of computer usage. App Inventor will open the floodgates for new Android software to get published. This will help the market by providing fresh apps, but in the mean time it may dilute the overall quality of the software already available. In the long run competition will increase as thousands of people invent apps, and millions
