I Have To Wonder If This Back To The Future Golf Cart Can Go The Required 88 Miles-Per-Hour...

Okay.  It has a Mr. Fusion.  But can the Flux Capacitor... flux?  And does it have enough steel in the frame to protect the golfers within?

A new, patented, electronic collar, developed by biomedical engineers and members of the Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine, can now monitor your dog's health and activity levels and keep you informed in very detailed, easy to understand, information and graphics on your electronic devices.  It's called, appropriately, Voyce, for it tells you everything your dog would tell you if he could.

Marines Send Google's Robotic Dog To Training Camp

Spot, the newest Marine Corps trainee, may not be the first robotic dog to be deployed overseas, but if it (he?) gets that far, it will be the first dog robot to do the job that real dogs could be doing for the military without risking their lives.  But do you think quadra-pet robots could eventually become pals with their Marine trainers?

Tsū Social Network Sponsors Photo Shoot That’s A Croc!

Tsu was the first new social network to disrupt the social media status quo by transitioning from a strictly commercial advertising platform to a monetization model based on rewarding their users monetarily for their content. This paradigm shift kickstarted others to follow suit and in less than a year, the network has attracted close to 4 million followers.

The Invention Of Coke Motivates ‘Mad Men’ Finale & ‘Happyish’ Entrée

Where an iconic TV show ends, another begins. Mad Men and Happyish are separated by eight years in real-time but actually over 50 years in their respective fictional timelines. Both plots focus on the inner-workings of an advertising agency. The former documents how we were romanced into believing in promotional hype, while the latter’s reality check is a result of a healthy dose of buyer-beware skepticism and a growing. . .

Tsū Goes To The Dogs For Red Nose Day USA

In its very short tenure (only 7 months old), Tsu as a social network has earned an international reputation as a donor to worthy causes. Founder and CEO Sebastian Sobczak assembled a team of developers to create an ecosystem to accomplish two very unique functions. One was to pay its users 90% of its total daily ad revenues (previously unheard of in the social media space), and secondly it would distinguish itself further as a charitable. .

Is Silicon Valley’s ‘Datageddon’ Coming, Or Will Modern-Day Florence Continue to Renaissance?

It’s been referred to as the ‘Cradle of Innovation’ in a time of transformation, where art has been replaced by Clouds, DaVinci’s by Zuckerberg’s, beauty by functionality and greed . . . well, by greed (some things never change.) But is the 21st Century’s Renaissance peaking, or will it live to Snapchat another day?

Defining Synereo Before It Redefines Facebook

There’s a new social network in town and if it's half as powerful as its hype, prepare to follow a whole new line of logic when you socialize online in the very near future.

Will YouTube Subscription Service Compete With Netflix, Spotify?

Google has decided its web-based video provider YouTube has finally grown up enough to get some big-boy pants. It’s a bit step, but Google appears to be taking its cue from streaming video and music content providers like Netflix and Spotify.

Will Tsu Become The Next Paypal?

Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn may be profiting from all that user-generated content users post on their networks daily — but are you? Yes, they have all provided us with some fun and engaging ecosystems to strut our stuff, and ofcourse there are cost factors attached to all that development. But at the end of the day, do our images, bon mots, intellectual property and reputations hold no value at all?

Siri v. Cortana - Who Gets The Last Laugh? (Videos)

For those who’ve been following the Siri versus Cortana ‘war of words’ on TV, you're most likely of the inclination that Apple dropped the ball with its iPhone 6 iteration -- because, Microsoft has been laughing all the way to the bank with its latest Windows smartphone commercials for the new HTC One®.

Is There A Place For #Hashtag Meditation In The Twittersphere?

#Hashtag Meditation! Even those two juxtaposed words sound like an oxymoron. How does one hashtag a meditative state, when one activity underscores action and the latter centers on reflection. Well, for one, if Twitter has taught us anything, it’s made us rethink how we express ourselves. It’s caused us to distill big ideas down to 140 characters. That action in and of itself puts us in a contemplative mode of thinking.

The old AMEX ad slogan of ‘don’t leave home without it’ is apropos when referencing the new social trend of ‘instant purchasing.’ Within the very same week, both Apple and Twitter have devised new mobile e-commerce options. The stickiness of making a purchase without leaving the confines a social network or opening up several apps on your smartphone is appealing to the no-nonsense digerati who gravitate towards. . .
