Kids Watch Software Helps Limit Computer Time

16 Aug

Do you need a way to keep track of and limit what your kids do on your computer? The site sayds, “KidsWatch parental control software is your fastest and easiest solution to safeguard your children’s’ Internet experience and maximize the efficiency of the time they spend on the computer. Set computer usage time limits, by child, ensuring homework is a priority.” I tried it out recently and it work fairly well. There are two different versions, one that limits time and the other that can also restrict what your kids do on the computer. It’s only good on a PC and your purchase requires an annual renewal. I am fan of buying software once, but perhaps I’m just old school.

Kids Watch can limit:

  • Internet chats, including Instant messaging
  • YouTube, Facebook and Instagram Web Visits
  • Online Gaming and Gaming Software Downloads
  • Music Downloads

Two Ways To Make Twitter More User Friendly

1 Aug

@Jack Dorsey,

I am a Twitter fan. I was an early adopter. I get it. However I have seen hundreds of people not get it and I know why. I think it comes down to two reasons people don’t get Twitter – not understanding who their message is going to and how to write a tweet.

First of all there needs to be a paradigm shift from public and private accounts to public and private messages. When a message is written let the person choose “do my followers see this” or “does it go public”. People who don’t get Twitter don’t understand how to setup their account so don’t make them think about it.

Second I think giving the ability to let people write long messages and let Twitter break it up automatically into individual tweets would simplify the process. People who don’t get Twitter don’t get the 140 character limit so don’t make them think about it.

I realize these two ideas may introduce many questions however only user experience testing will provide answers. Making Twitter easier to use requires less thought process. Lowering the interaction cost will be challenging however it can be done with a careful balance of physical, mental and level of subject matter precision.

Truly,
@MarcMajers

Bing Versus Google

30 Jul

Right now Bing is 20% of what people use to search online. So have you tried using it to search? The other day I stumbled upon Bing It On which compares Bing and Google’s search results side-by-side. The site asks you to enter in a search term, review the search results, pick one you like and then tells you which one’s results you preferred.
