Batch It Up: A New Way To Your Photography Sharing

I'm having a very good day today, because I just learned about two new Apps that tailor to my interests and biggest hobbies of mine - movies (MovieGoer) and photography (Batch), and it's all about sharing.

Not that I haven't shared my photos and film reviews before, but with the new Apps it might have just become easier for me to do so, as well as - more visual, more involving, more ... engaging.

Of course current all-time favorites are - Instagram and Photosynth, but I'm open to explore other Apps.

Join me in learning about the new App called Batch, which is aimed at bringing back profligate photo sharing. It encourages users to take as many photos as they want, and to share them all...

MovieGoer: A Social App for Going to the Movies

This is exactly what I've been looking for - an App for going to the movies! I can very much see myself becoming one active user of this application, despite the fact that not many of my friends in the social circle are as passionate about movie going - [and sharing their experiences] - as I am, so let's see if it's gonna be applicable in my case since the App is meant for a social experience, not the solo indulgence.

Digital Age's Generation: What's Next?

Here is a revelation for you:

We live in a d i g i t a l  a g e!

And there's no more denial that we no longer limit ourselves to the traditional press. While TV still plays an important role in our lives - and I don't think it would ever cease to exist as we all enjoy our evenings and Sunday sport games in front of a big plazma TV - but as far as the print press is concerned - it is becoming obsolete.

It's been quickly replaced by the digital media and tech/gadgets that we use to access the information. And all thanks to Steve Jobs and his genius device - iPad, proceeded by the preparation to turn into the all-in-one-gadget-for-all-we-need-to-know-and-do device - iPhone.

However, slowly, but surely - except for a few individual progressive publications such as The New York Times and Wired - most of the print press took a note of the Appalachian iPad use and now most of the newspapers and magazines could be read on iPads and other tablets...

What is going to happen next, now that Steve Jobs is no longer with us? Would the new innovations be coming from the Apple Inc., or Samsung, or...? We don't know. We just know that with Hulu, Netflix, and similar online video content sites, where we can watch TV and movies from online streaming, our TV watching is no longer the same as it was just a year ago...

 Here is how it all happened:

Social Media Becomes A Profession

...And I can't blame it. I actually strongly believe that social media not only will infuse in all the spheres of companies' businesses - from HR to  custodians, but it would actually become a full-time job - profession on its own... It's about time that all companies and organizations understand that any outreach they do - it needs to go beyond traditional marketing, promotion and PR practices...

Immortal Steve Jobs: Tweeter fans' tribute

I opened my email box this morning and saw an update from my Tweeter feeder to check out something amazing that only in this time and age could have been possible (yes, they did it before with old computers when it was hip and cool to print out in 'numbers' famous paintings in the likes of Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, but this time it's's WAAAAY different)...This is something that has been created by the social media...

Overheard in New York

Overheard in New York
Don't we all rush in to share with our friends something funny/odd/peculiar/amazing/newsworthy/dangerous that you've overheard someone is saying to someone else?

I, personally, don't eavesdropping on purpose, per say, but if I happen to hear something that is worthy of my attention, I share it with my friends and family...

Say, how often have you passed someone on the street and caught a snippet of conversation out of context that was so funny or bizarre that you wanted to share it with someone else? There's no better place for this experience than New York City and not surprisingly, there is a website devoted to capturing these stray asides that make eavesdropping such a fun sport. And I just found out about it from my favorite blogger, a social media Guru, Paul Gillin.

Fashion's Night Out is out: First Look from Fashion Week, New York

September 8, 2011 was Fashion’s Night Out in New York and - in Milan, Moscow, London, Paris, etc. - and it was crazy, taking into consideration the fact that only once a year not only all stores stay open till late, but they offer discounts + celebrity sightings + refreshments + mini extravaganza entertainment.

As a bouqet of "complete" happiness for fashionistas out there, the streets were filled with huge crowds, everyone was happy and a little "drunk" from all the shopping and sightings.
Fashion's Night Out comes right in time for many of us to start our fall shopping – just in time for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to kick-off today in New York City, which means the fashion bloggers (like Bryan Boy), style columnists (like Eric Wilson) and street fashion photographers will be in and about, so watch out and dress to impress. Remember – personal style counts! As a matter of fact, Scott Schuman has already offered a very first look from the Fashion Week this morning.
