Google Maps is a Growing User Review and Business Directory Service

Yelp and Tripadvisor are probably getting a bit worried with Google pushing their map service more and more (or at least they should be). Google Maps already has pretty much, every known business on the planet listed. Try it out, search the name of an establishment with the name of the city it's in. I'm guessing 9 out of 10 times, that place will come up in the results. What you may have started to notice is that users are reviewing these places right through the Google Maps app. I have been using Google's star/save feature for years now. This feature was once limited to only the web browser version of Google Maps, but Google has recently rolled it out to their mobile app platform as well.


Evernote - Going Digital!

I have recently started to get addicted to this app/online web tool called Evernote. I decided it was finally time to consolidate some of my files stored on Dropbox, Google Drive, my personal file server, and local HD on my laptop. We have so many options these days when it comes to digital tools, we start to become overwhelmed with choices and our saved information (our photos, documents, notes, etc.) become time consuming to actually find. You don't know where to find your files, because we don't actually even know where to start looking.



DigitalOcean - An Incredibly Easy to Use Cloud Hosting Provider with Superb Customer Support

I have finally moved away from using shared hosting...and man does it feel good! And if I knew how easy and cheap it was, I would have moved on a long time ago. But then again, DigitalOcean wasn't really around 5-10 years ago.

So what is DigitalOcean? DigitalOcean is a cloud hosting provider built on simplicity and community. Both of which, are the reasons I decided to go with them. I have changed hosting providers several times over the years, mostly due to extremely poor (or nonexistent) customer service and unreliable servers/support technicians.



The Room - an iPad Game Review

Wow! Where shall I begin? I have to say that this game is hands down the best game I have ever played on my iPad and it has seriously raised the bar for game developers on the iOS platform. The Room is the first game that Fireproof Games, the game company behind this masterpiece, has created for the iOS platform, and we are all impressed! I have to say, they executed their first game project flawlessly. Just about everything in this game is perfect, from the in-game graphics which were beautifully done, to the engaging nature of the game and just the right level of difficulty.

Dropbox is an online software that allows you to setup a share folder on your computer that is securely stored on the Dropbox servers in the cloud. This folder appears by default in your my documents folder. Drop whatever you want in this folder (free accounts are up to 2GB in storage) and it immediately gets synced to the Dropbox servers. It takes about 5 minutes to create an account and install the software on your PC. So right away you have a backup copy on a secure online server. So in the event that you lose your laptop or computer HD gets fried, you still have your files safely backed up on Drop box’s secure server.
