  • Twitter Founder Reveals Secret Formula for Getting Rich Online

    In his speech, Williams explained what the inter­net is, how it works, and how to get rich from it. Truth be told, Williams is not the best pub­lic speak­er, but his mes­sage was clear: At a time when so many inter­net entre­pre­neurs are run­ning around Silicon Valley try­ing to do some­thing no one else has ever done, Williams believes that the real trick is to find some­thing that’s tried and true — and to do it bet­ter. It’s a speech that should serve as a sign­post, a bit of much-needed direc­tion for the Valley’s younger gen­er­a­tion.”

  • It’s Over For Paid iPad & iPad Apps, With A Few Exceptions

    s it over for paid mobile apps? That’s the gen­er­al think­ing these days, as the App Stores fill up with “good enough” alter­na­tives to paid apps, while major pub­lish­ers game the charts with free offer­ings that make mil­lions which can then be used for their ongo­ing user acqui­si­tion efforts. That’s one of the rea­sons why the top charts of the App Store have got­ten so dif­fi­cult to break into for new pub­lish­ers today, in fact.”

  • Getting Started with Flat UI Design

    A recent Forbes report places the increas­ing trend towards flat design firm­ly at the door of people’s grow­ing famil­iar­i­ty with dig­i­tal inter­faces. In years gone by (1995-2003), the author says, design­ers were design­ing for only a “cer­tain class of pro­fes­sion­al work­ers” who were famil­iar with desk­top soft­ware and this meant design­ing with click­a­bil­i­ty in mind.

  • How to Use Multiple iTunes Accounts / Apple IDs on One iPad–Without Losing Anything!

    If you read the var­i­ous dis­cus­sion boards about shar­ing iPads, most sources emphat­i­cal­ly state you sim­ply can can­not share an iPad. There are also a num­ber of threads warn­ing that log­ging in with a dif­fer­ent iTunes account is pos­si­ble, but it will cause all exist­ing apps from the orig­i­nal account to be delet­ed from the iPad. Frankly there were so many naysay­ers, I did­n’t think it would work. But after giv­ing it a shot, I’m here to report that installing apps from mul­ti­ple accounts on one iPad can be done, and it’s real­ly not dif­fi­cult. The process requires two Apple IDs, and one iOS device run­ning either iOS 6 or iOS 7.”

  • Personal Branding for Introverts

    I had just fin­ished a talk at a lead­ing tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­ny when an engi­neer approached me. “I liked your ideas about per­son­al brand­ing, and I can see how they’d work,” he told me. “But most of them aren’t for me — I’m an intro­vert. Is there any­thing I can do?” What he didn’t real­ize is that (like an esti­mat­ed one-third to one-half of the pop­u­la­tion) I’m one, too.
