Think Like Oreo: Tips for Creating Shareable Graphics in a Pinch
February 5th, 2013 by Christine Geraci
So in case you haven't already heard, there was a bit of a blackout during the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. No one really knew what was going on. The game was delayed by a good half hour. But instead of waiting around and speculating, Oreo decided to creatively seize the opportunity with a simple shareable photo that let everybody know "you can still dunk in the dark."

Need a Taxi Cab? Hail a Transportation App Instead!
February 5th, 2013 by Aprel Phelps Downey
Picture a city where taxi cabs are plentiful, quietly waiting to whisk passengers from their plush executive offices to the glitzy social event of the evening. There is no pushing or shoving, yelling or fighting. Just peaceful taxi cab service where everyone waits their turn. This is a mere figment of the imagination. Real taxi cabs are nowhere to be found when needed.
Facebook's Photo Tagging is Back
February 4th, 2013 by Jessica Cherok
A couple of years ago, Facebook debuted a new photo tagging feature using facial recognition technology. "Debuted" may be too strong a word for it, though.

Lessons from a Broken iPhone
February 1st, 2013 by Christine Geraci
All I wanted to do was put some photos on my computer. Instead, I lost the use of my iPhone for more than 12 hours. And I have to tell you, how I acted in those 12 hours kind of scared me. It all started when I plugged my phone into my laptop (a PC that runs Windows 7) to import some photos and videos. As everything began to function as it should, I was asked if I wanted to update to iOS 6.1. Well, of course I do! So, I got that process rolling and, once again everything was working as it should, until...the error. For some unknown reason identifiable only by a string of numbers, the update stopped. I was informed the update could not proceed because of the error. So, I unplugged the phone from the computer. My iPhone's home screen then switched to a picture...
Tweeting for the Arts?
January 31st, 2013 by Jessica Cherok
Having your cell hone out in a theater during a show is typically regarded as being a major no-no. Recently, however, several theaters around the country are actually giving away free seats to people who will keep their phones out to tweet about performances. These “tweet seats” are meant to generate buzz about the theaters’ shows, and hopefully entice more people to attend.
Apple and the Bullies of Wall Street
January 31st, 2013 by Greg Dorn
We’ve heard these words again and again: Apple is doomed! Given the fact that the tech giant has and always will remain under the sharpest microscope, that phrase is most likely to be uttered many times over the next 10 years. Anxious investors need only look at Apple’s plummeting stock price. Since it reached a record high of $705.07 a share back on Sept. 21...
Google, Facebook and Others Requiring Warrants for Your Online Communications
January 30th, 2013 by Jessica Cherok
Do you know what is required in order for companies like Google or Facebook to turn over information about your electronic communications when government entities ask? Both say that they require full warrants in order to give over information they have. This is a notable change for Facebook, which had in the past complied with simply a subpoena.
