Do you use the free wireless service at McDonalds, Panera or Starbucks? While you are enjoying the free wifi your security could be vulnerable, so here are some tips to assist you.

Tips to Protect Data on Wifi Network:

  1. Make sure you see https – when surfing a website look up in the browser bar to confirm you see “https” instead of “http”
  2. Use virtual private network – if your employer offers a secure network while you are there, log into it if you’re doing work
  3. Signup for two step verification - most popular sites offer this service

Google Hangouts

6 Aug

What are Google Hangouts? How can you use them for your business? school? or just to socialize? Discover in this extraordinary overview and “howto” by Martin Shervington.

Google Hangouts launched in May 2013 to replace Google Talk, Gchat, what used to be called hangouts but were really ‘Google Plus Video Chat’ without the integration, and Google Messenger. Essentially it’s a hybrid between an instant message, email and video conference.

Martin describes, “Hangouts are like a party on the porch front. You are walking by and see people are chatting away on the porch and decide to pop in and say hi.” What do think of them?

When’s The Last Time We Talked?

2 Aug

How do you keep track of the last time you spoke to one of your friends? In this day and age, you probably have many circles of friends – work, personal, organizations and school. How often do you touch base with your friends? Do you forget to contact them for ages? I can imagine your friend may wonder, “Are we even friends anymore?” Now there is a social application called TinyBlu that allows you enter in the last time you spoke to someone. If you don’t text or email them again, you will then get an email notice that reminds you to get a hold of them again. I like the fact that you can quick visual of each friend’s mood based on when you last contacted them. Thanks to Stephen Herron on the find.

Manage your social life:

  • Check the last time you hung out with a friend
  • Get a reminder when you lose touch with someone
  • Maintain regular interactions with important people

Why Helping Others Drives Our Success

27 Jul

Back in the 2004, I read a book called “Love The Killer App” by Tim Sanders. In a nutshell, the book urged the world to be “Love Cats” and share your knowledge and always help others. I took the book to heart and I work each day to put his words into action. I recently read a post on LinkedIn called “Why Helping Others Drives Our Success” and it harkened back to this same philosophy. I hope you enjoy this article as much as I did. Below are some quick bullet points from the article and then a link to it.

Why Helping Others Drives Our Success

  1. Reciprocity – believe in an eye for an eye
  2. Learn – by volunteering to help and mentor others
  3. Motivate – contributing enhances the meaning of work
  4. Create – habit of taking others’ perspectives
  5. Leadership – more potential in others than in themselves
