Dragon Naturally Speaking: Speak Naturally. Stop Typing

If you have been on the Internet, you are usually typing all day long. While it’s the most natural way to use the computer, a very critical input type has been missing for a long time with the simple assumption that if there’s a computer, you’d type. Typing, however, isn’t good. It’s slow, it’s error prone, and it causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It’s also a labor-intensive way to create content of any kind. If you are in business today, you are possibly creating a lot of content. All that typing can kill, if it doesn’t make you wary of...

Jaco: See Website Relays Live & Test Your Products

  The field of analytics is getting very interesting off late with the likes of Mouseflow and many other tools.

MyBusinessGenie: Sell On Steroids & Look Good While Doing It

I remember how I used to squirm when clients would ask me to “email the brochure” or “send in an email” with more product information soon after I pitched my company’s products. I’d squirm because it’s a pain to get back to the office, find the relevant information that each client asked for, and then send in that information. Those days (this was at least 7-8 years ago), I’d have no smartphones, tablets, or fancy cloud solutions to help me deal with this part of the sales pitch.
