Wombats, IIGS keyboards and ADB mice (oh my!)

There is something oddly satisfying about the idea of using a vintage keyboard with a modern computer. I’m no stranger to that, as my previous blog post will attest. This time around, I’m repurposing my venerable Apple IIgs keyboard for daily use with my 2014 era MacBook Pro. I’m typing this very post with aforementioned keyboard; it’s blissful to type on. And, dare I say, even better than the Apple Extended Keyboard II – thanks to the IIGS keyboard’s Alps salmon switches. I rather enjoy my cli...

Native Instruments is struggling to provide customer support following changes

Changes this year to customer support channels have left some customers frustrated, according to sources familiar with the matter and user complaints. Despite promises from NI management that the direction of the company would “improve the experience for all users of our products,” users may see constrained support options and increased service backlogs. Native Instruments did not mention cuts to customer support in its statements to me earlier this month. NI cut an estimated 30% of its wo...

Text is the New Marketing

Most small business owners stink at marketing. They only do it when they have low sales but as soon as they get revenue (as a results of their marketing), they inexplicably stop. This keeps their prospect pipeline empty. Technology comes to the rescue for small businesses that want to easily automate their marketing and keep that pipeline full. While few people may read your email, customers still reliably check their mobile texts. According to an Asurion study, people look at their phones an av...

Quantum Supremacy

By now you've probably heard the rumors of Google achieving quantum supremacy. I don't have inside information outside of Scott's blog post but it looks like the news should be embargoed until the release of a Science or Nature paper. These things usually happen on a Tuesday and you'd think they would avoid the news of the Nobel Prize announcements October 7-14. Since for now the Google paper doesn't officially exist, we live in an era of Classical Dominance. Any problem that can be solved on a ...

Why Your Sponsored Product Ads are “Ineligible”

Having trouble advertising your products because Amazon is marking them as “not eligible”? If you’ve ever dabbled in PPC (pay-per-click) advertising, you’ll know that your ads may sometimes get disapproved by Google/Bing due to some policy violation.

Robots meta changes for Google

Sometimes Google does announcements about new features and we go “huh, why did they do that?” This week we had one of those. Google introduced a new set of robots meta controls, that allows sites to limit the display of their snippets in the search results. There is a reason for that, but they buried that reason far, far away. With their newly introduced robots meta controls, you can “say” things like: I don’t want you to show more than 200 characters from my site! Or: I don’t want you to sho...

Spiced Apple Cider Doughnuts

These apple cider donuts have the same consistency as fried donuts and are jam-packed with fall’s flavors – just like the ones sold at apple orchards alongside caramel apples. They are baked rather than fried and can be made as standard donuts, donut holes, or apple cider donut muffins! My aunt says that these baked donuts might be the best dessert she’s ever had. I don’t really play favorites, but this is a winner for sure. They smell SO good coming out of the oven!Read the full article here ...

Why You Should Use Association Websites in Your Job Search

--> The focus of my career has been researching jobs from employer career pages, job sites, association sites and consolidating these jobs in one place. Through the course of this work I have learned how to track down jobs that few people know about and where applicants are likely to have a good chance of getting hired when they apply. One of the best places to track down jobs which (1) few people know about and (2) you stand good odds of getting an interview if you apply, is association website...
