This digital content training will have customers chasing you, not the other way around

Promoting products is almost nothing like it was back in the Mad Men days. In fact, the digital landscape has changed the ad game so much that it barely even resembles early Grey’s Anatomy days anymore.  Marketing a product digitally isn’t about the right ad slogan or color scheme. It’s about crafting the narrative around that product through blog posts, social media, videos and other legitimate content that demands a potential customer’s attention and motivates action.

Linus Torvalds Dumps Intel For 32-core AMD Ryzen On His Personal PC

Linus Torvalds released Linux 5.7 rc7 today, saying it "looks very normal... none of the fixes look like there's anything particularly scary going on." But then he added something else: [T]he biggest excitement this week for me was just that I upgraded my main machine, and for the first time in about 15 years, my desktop isn't Intel-based. No, I didn't switch to ARM yet, but I'm now rocking an AMD Threadripper 3970x. My 'allmodconfig' test builds are now three times faster than they used to be,...

Kevin Costner, campeón indiscutido del cine de temática deportiva

No debe haber estrella de Hollywood más conectada con películas de temática deportiva como Kevin Costner. Con un detalle más que curioso. A Costner nunca le tocó "transpirar la camiseta" como a Sylvester Stallone en los rings de la saga de Rocky o a Chris Hemsworth dentro de un coche de Fórmula 1 cuando le tocó interpretar a James Hunt en Rush: pasión y gloria.En sus grandes apariciones dentro de este terreno, Costner suele encarnar una idea del deporte en el cine más asociada con valores, condu...

Tech Companies Urges US House to Protect the Privacy of Americans' Browsing and Search History

While reinstating the PATRIOT Act, the U.S. Senate blocked an amendment which would've shielded Americans' browsing and search histories from warrantless searches. But that fight may not be over, reports TechSpot: [S]everal tech companies including Mozilla, Reddit, Twitter, and Patreon have co-signed a letter asking the House of Representatives to tidy up this mess.

Mixed up

There's been a lot of idle chit-chat about blended learning, and how 'indispensable' it is during the historic online pivot. Blended this and blended that - it's spoken of as though it were some kind of magic bullet that will cure all pedagogical ills. It isn't. But it could be.No, scrub that. It isn't. Blended is simply a crazy idea that learning can occur anywhere, in both formal and informal contexts, inside school and outside of it, using a mix of technology - as and when it suits. I wish I...

A study found that tech workers could flee dense San Francisco for suburban-like San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley amid remote working boom

Some surveys suggest there may be an exodus of tech workers from the San Francisco Bay Area due to the COVID-19 pandemic. City-dwellers may relocate to less dense and more affordable locales as work from home policies become the norm. But a new study places San Jose, in the heart of the tech region, as one of the best-positioned cities in the US to benefit from the post-pandemic future. San Jose is much less dense, with only 5,300 residents per square mile compared to the 17,000 residing in Sa...

UK May Drop Huawei From Planned 5G Networks

An anonymous reader quotes the Guardian: The National Cyber Security Agency in the UK is expected to conclude that U.S. sanctions against Huawei will make it impossible to use the Chinese company's technology as planned for 5G networks. The emergency review, announced on Sunday, is designed to pave the way for Downing Street to push for the total elimination of Huawei equipment in British phone networks by 2023 and quell a Conservative backbench revolt.

Naming a New Business: 4 Important Steps to Choosing the Right Business Name

By Darpan Munjal Recently, a survey was released that became a trending topic across major news outlets and social media channels. The unscientific poll claimed that 38% of Americans wouldn’t buy Corona beer because of the coronavirus. While the accuracy of this survey is questionable, outlets and audiences took the story and ran, claiming that the shared name of our now global pandemic hurt beverage sales. While it was nearly impossible for the brand to have predicted such a coincidence, Corona...

Jack Dorsey Tells Andrew Yang: 'AI is Coming For Programming Jobs'
