Social Media and the #2012Election

Over the past few years, the number of people engaging with social media has gone through the roof, and the different ways people utilize social networking platforms continues to evolve. So when election season rolled around it was no surprise that candidates, as well as the public, started taking to Twitter and Facebook to campaign and voice their opinions. Just this week, Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic Convention reportedly “broke twitter” by driving a record 28,003 tweets-per-minute, and that’s just a small portion of the 3 million tweets that were sent out that night surrounding the convention.

On Monday, August 27, I attended the 3rd Annual PR Summit “PR Startup Bootcamp”. It was an energetic day filled with media professionals, entrepreneurs, influencers and public relations practitioners - all eager to learn from each other. A series of panels throughout the day covered topics like “PR for Startups & Early Stage Companies” and “Social Media versus PR - who owns the message”. Reporters including Harry McCracken from Time, Jolie Odell from VentureBeat and Alastair Goldfisher from Reuters were among the speakers and moderators.

5 Creative Things to do With Your Instagram Photos

There’s something about Instagram, the popular photo-sharing app, that’s got me hooked. Maybe it’s the app’s ease of use, or its ability to turn my otherwise mediocre photos into works of art; whatever the case, it’s a large part of a little problem I have called: “I can’t put my iPhone down.”

DIY, a Start-Up for Kids

If there’s one thing I know for certain, it’s that the second my nieces and nephew walk through the door they will be on a mad dash for the iPad. They seem to know of a new app to download almost every week, and it’s really interesting to see how quickly and easily children are adapting to technology these days. When I stumbled across this New York Times article titled “Disruptions: A Beacon to Silicon Valley, From a Start-Up for Children”, I was very curious what this startup for children would entail.

SceneTap

Thinking about heading out for a night on the town in San Francisco this weekend? Not sure where to go? Starting today, several bars in the city will implement SceneTap, a service which uses facial recognition technology to determine how many people are at the bar, the female to male ratio, and the average age of people at the venue -- all to give you a better feel for where you want to spend your night. The way you access all this information is through the company’s iPhone or Android App, which updates the stats in real time.

Sensu Paint Brush

 

The Sensu paint brush is one of the coolest gadgets I’ve seen in a long time, so naturally I had to share it. Functioning as both a paint brush and a stylus, the Sensu brush works on the iPad and iPhone as a tool for painting, sketching, and general device navigation. Although I’m no artist, I couldn’t help but be blown away at how realistic and detailed the brush strokes look when painting on an iPad, and I can see anyone from an artist to my 5-year-old niece using and embracing this fun little tool. Keep checking back to Sensu’s site for their official launch date, which is said to be happening sometime next month. In the meantime check out these videos to get a closer look at this unique product.

Savior in the Form of an iPhone Case

If you have a smartphone, you know there is nothing more annoying than running out of battery life in the middle of the day. My daily commute to work and school results in hours of travel time, and -- while I should take advantage of the down time to catch up on studying -- I tend to use my iPhone to check email, play games, listen to music, and more. Much to my annoyance, I found that my phone would oftentimes run out of juice before 5 pm. What I really needed was a way to wirelessly charge my phone while I was on the go, and I found the perfect solution with the Mophie Juice Pack.
