Opt Out from Behavioral Online Advertising with tools
Wed, Mar 30th 2016 4:49p   Chris Miller
Interest and online behavior advertising inundates us daily when websites use your browsing history to predict what ads you should see. Luckily, there are some free tools with participating advertisers that allow you to opt out. The advertisers in question dig into your life, peeking into your browser cookies so they can tell where you recently visited and what may entice you into clicking more ads. The Digital Alliance Advertising Consumer Choice page allows you to view over 125 participating a

You Are the Key: Unlocking the Door Through Social Selling book review
Mon, Mar 14th 2016 12:02p   Chris Miller
I read You Are the Key: Unlocking the Door Through Social Selling cover to cover as someone that is very familiar with the content and their goals. If I stepped back and looked at it from a new comer to the ideas of using social networks as a social selling tool, they cover the basics very thoroughly and then get a bit lighter in the actual selling. The book only has one flaw that got in my way an that was the breaking up of the networks across the chapters causing them to repeat themselves. I t

Mobile Passport app from US Customs – review
Fri, Jan 8th 2016 2:19p   Chris Miller
Recently US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched the Mobile Passport application for everyone entering through select airports. The Mobile Passport allows you to skip the lines and even the new automated kiosks and head straight to a special (hopefully quicker and shorter) line.  At the time of writing this there were five airports currently live and the ability to email them your next choices. The Mobile Passport App by Airside Mobile lets you skip the line at US airports for Custom an

YouTube Red – a week in review

I had to spend some serious time with YouTube Red to really get a valid opinion. So a week of deep diving and usage and here is my review and opinions.  The first thing I had to take into account was how much do the ads really bother me?  Honestly I am so used to them since the start I ignore them.  Even the additions of cards, links and other monetization doesn’t dissuade me and the masses from watching. With YouTube Red you enter a world of Ad-free videos whenever you sign in to YouT

Amazon Follow quietly launches for everyone
Mon, Nov 2nd 2015 2:45p   Chris Miller
Amazon Follow quietly launched for everyone that adds content to Amazon. Previously, Amazon Follow was invite only as a way for authors to reach their readers. As a constant Amazon reviewer I can now have people follow my reviews for recommended products. Amazon does not go into deep detail about how many notifications you receive or how they are actually viewed other than the web interface for any outside of authors. A book author could send a short email notice to followers on upcoming book re

Instagram – thank you for new Landscape, Portrait and Layouts
Mon, Aug 31st 2015 4:52p   Chris Miller
Instagram has finally listened to users and now allows you to post landscape and portrait mode photos. While you could previously do this using other applications, the whole act of going into another app made no sense and was obvious in the timeline. As you can see, the picture on the left is the old way where you had to select a specific portion of a picture and crop it down to make it fit.  With the new button in the lower left corner it easily drops the photo to the landscape or portrait si
