Hype Down! iPad – Not a Game Changer

Apple CEO Steve Jobs hit another marketing home run with the release of the new iPad achieving top of mind awareness and opening week sales of 500,000 units.

But is the iPad a game changer like the iPod? After working and playing on one the past two weeks, I’d say not really–at least not yet– because the iPad isn’t a completely new way of doing something like the iPod was.

Will the iPad blow up an entire industry like the iPhone did to wireless? Probably not. The iPad doesn’t replace an existing product used by millions.

Then what is it?

Either people have less of it these days or I’m hanging around with the wrong people. I admit we all have flaws, we all make mistakes and can’t always be true to our word.

Do Good, Feel Amazing, LeapCR

When it comes to inspiring your employees, the options may seem obvious. Pay raises, team building days, cake… the tried and true methods of getting the team to enjoy work life and each other’s company more. But employers aren’t just responsible for feeding their worker’s wallets and stomachs – with the amount of time people spend in the office these days, companies should be looking out for their workers overall wellbeing.

5 Reasons To Leave Your Business Behind And Enjoy The Great Outdoors

When you started your business I bet one of your main reasons for doing so was the freedom to create your own schedule and work your own hours.

You wanted a piece of that wonderful entrepreneurial lifestyle of working from the beach, jetting off on an impromptu vacation on your yacht or dropping everything to head away to one of your holiday homes…..

You may not be quite at that stage yet, but are you actually taking advantage of the freedom you have and scheduling regular time out? Are you taking regular holidays or mini retreats or taking a whole day out during the week just because?

Show Me The Money! How To Treat Your Business As An Investment

A few months back I was reading a fascinating article in Entrepreneur.com about how few entrepreneurs start a business with the end in mind. The all important exit strategy seems elusive to many of us yet it is so important to have that end goal in mind.

I was so impressed by the points in the article and the level of advice given, plus the fact that she’d just written a book called Show Me The Money that I just decided to email Chia-Li Chien and tell her so.

Found a new place to shop!

I ran across a site called Clever Cuties, which sells apparel for geeks and nerds.  There are several places to find geeky gear like this, but I was really impressed with the site layout, additional features, and the artwork on the apparel is really geeky cute!

The “My Mom’s a Geek” t-shirt seems to fit Geeky Moms.com really well, don’t you think?

Clevercuties.com…not an affiliate but a really fun place to do some virtual shopping.

Best Practices to Teach Basic Computer Movement – Part One

It takes a lot of effort and time to teach a young child how to use a mouse or keyboard.  It takes even longer to get them comfortable enough to maneuver through a GUI with little effort.  Yet, once your toddler or young child becomes comfortable at this level, the amount of actual intervention on your part decreases immensely.  The goal is not to get them an interactive babysitter but to give them independent computer skills which will build them a strong foundation for their future.  Children of today will never remember a time when computers or the Internet did not play a predominate role in their lives. (Unless of course they grow up sheltered from modern technology.)  These kids excluded, the geeky child is engulfed by technology. 

 

The future of computers is fuzzy but one thing is certain:  they will never go away.  With that promising thought in mind, let’s get our children off on the right track and give them the tools to empower their lives with an open and ready to learn attitude.
