GOOGLE SMARTWATCH NOW AVAILABLE

While having the latest smartphone is all very well and good, it’s clear that tech heads are already moving on to the next thing. While Google Glass is available, they’re still not *quite* there in terms of actually being okay to just wear around on the streets. (The term Glassh*les is already a thing, which should tell you everything you need to know.) However, there is an alternative now available to buy online: The Google Smartwatch.

Both the LG “G-Watch” and the Samsung Gear Live were made available on Google Play’s website from the end of June, and while they may not have been made explicitly available within Ireland, thanks to the internet there’s always a way around that!

While these watches may not have the entire functionality of a phone, they will be able to do most other things that require an internet connection, with a Siri-type command of “Ok Google” letting your watch know you want it to do something, followed by “Order takeaway food” or “Find directions to X”, and the hi-def screen showing you what you need.

It’ll also inform you when you’ve received emails and the like if you’ve got all your Google stuff set-up and connected to each other, so it’ll also double up like a new-age pager!

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
