I thought this would just be a matter of time, but someone has gotten around to implementing the Popcorn Time streaming torrent system working inside of a browser. Previously, I looked at this interesting phenomenon that was only possible on jailbroken iOS devices. But, now it appears to have expanded to the web (via the browser).
Like Google Reader, iGoogle, Wave and Buzz before it, the days of the social network Google Plus may be numbered. The writing appears to be on the wall. With Twitter’s announcement on May 19 that Google’s app would include tweets in searches, Google is making massive changes. While Google may want to spic it differently, signs are pointing to the end of the social network.
When I joined the writing team at MovieViral in late 2013, I had aspirations of writing about the other topic I enjoy: movies. My interest was twofold; Get some experience writing for a larger site, and eventually work toward earning money for that work. For a time, the writing was difficult to keep up with, but I persevered. Eventually, the site would sell to a new and, British, group. In return for supporting them, they would steal from me. Let me explain.
Using Flickr for photo management appears to be a great value proposition. Store all your photos, and in turn, they offer a full terabyte (that’s 1000 gigabytes!) of drive space. For all the different options for storing and managing photos online, Flickr can’t be beaten. Right? As good as that is, Flickr also has to be the most annoying and convoluted systems to use for managing and sharing photos. Today, I thought I’d look at Flickr’s worst offences.
Apple is known for taking its time on products. One of the most anticipated of them is a dock for lightning devices. I had a feeling we might never see this thing. As you can see by the product page on Apple, the device is indeed a reality.
There’s always excitement when something new arrives. The feeling like this is the first time anyone has ever seen a thing; Like I’m part of an exclusive club. After making an initial version and funding that on Kickstarter, makers Orangemonkie came back to successfully crowdfund the second iteration: Foldio2. Join me as I take a look at this new product and share my thoughts about its usefulness.
But, the viral landscape is changing fast, from movies, to short films, to long-form serial television, to shows released from online services. I’m interested in all types of entertainment, from the more obscure indie, to the blockbuster, to all the amazing science fiction. But, what do we call viral content in the Internet age?
Today, I’ve introduced a theme change to this blog, and I hope you like it. As you can probably tell, the look and feel here are far different than the last design. Over the next little while, I’ll be working out the smaller issues and making an effort to clean up the overall look. But, for now, please take it for a spin and let me know what you think.
In a move that makes lots of sense, Google announced today a rebranding of its web-based tools console from Webmaster Tools to Search Console. As a tool I’ve come to love (and hate) over the years, I thought it would be a good time to reflect on this important part of any Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Strategy.
As is often the case with Microsoft operating system releases, we’re interested in the beta and preview versions, releases dates, and what Microsoft will end up calling them. With a long history of just screwing up names (or at the very least, making them confusing), these things can tend to be a big thing while we use the software for the next few years.
