Finally, Roads for the Future: Solar Roadways

solar roadways

Here’s a cause we believe needs some more attention.  This idea could revolutionize the US dependency on power.  According to the product video, there is enough capacity in our interstate highway systems along to provide three times the power that we consume in the US.  That’s incredible and certainly worth the exploration.

Join us in supporting this cause!  Click through for their video introducing their product and idea.

PayPal Redirect Exploitation in Apple ID Phishing Attack

PayPal Redirect Exploitation in Apple ID Phishing Attack

Our continual vigilance is required to double-check all of our transactions with our favorite internet vendors.

There is a new exploit going around that attempts to steal your Apple ID credentials.  The email states, “If you did not order the above products and suspect your account has been hijacked kindly visit the link below.” The displayed link will look like www.order.itunes.com/verify/cancel but will not take you to a matching URL.

As always we encourage people to LOOK CAREFULLY at the directed URL in the top of their browser, as in this case, it’s clear that this is bogus as the domain name you land on is: paypal-communications.com.  

Just close and go away!

Heartbleed Isn't Dead Yet?!?!

Heartbleed.svgEver being optimists we hoped that this issue would be remedied quickly, cleanly and quietly. Unfortunately, we still regularly see servers vulnerable to the situation. This IS bad news.

When patching our servers, the process was simple and relatively easy. Sure a new certificate should be issued, but the long and short of things is that this is not a hard problem to deal with.

Website Not Producing Paying Customers? Here are Some Common Mistakes Found in Business Websites.

Website Not Producing Paying Customers? Here are Some Common Mistakes Found in Business Websites.

Today, a business website is not only a tool, it is a marketing essential. With many more customers starting their search for good local businesses online, you may be cheating yourself if you do no have a website, or if you have common detourants within your current website. In fact, some reports show that up to 75% of first time customers looking for a new business will indeed begin their search online first.

"But I have a website."

You may have a website, but is it drawing in the amount of business that you want? If you are getting visitors to your website, but they are just simply not converting to paying customers, then your website may actually be detouring customers away, rather then grabbing them in. Websites made on "do-it yourself" editors, Websites that were made during the "website boom," among others may have some common errors that drive your customers away.

Podcasting as a Marketing Tool

Podcasting as a Marketing Tool

Should Your Company Be Podcasting? Before we answer that question, let's take a quick look at what a podcast is. Audio programming isn't revolutionary. A company called Audible.com has been selling downloadable content like audio books and radio shows for nearly 10 years. Now, thanks to the growing popularity and large storage capacity of Apple’s iPods, tech experimentalists are considering anew the possibilities of downloadable audio. Now with new, easy-to-use distribution tools and cheaper storage capacity in addition to the millions-sold iPod market, podcasting is going mainstream.

The broadcasting part comes from syndication tools that allow listeners to subscribe to receive automatic downloads of new podcasts in episodes that interest them. People who produce podcasts use something called RSS (Really Simple Syndication) to create subscription feeds. Listeners point their podcatchers toward those feeds and receive their automatic updates. Apple’s iTunes software has built-in podcatching features, but you can also use other programs, like the free Juice Receiver. These podcatching programs transfer new episodes to your PC. Some software will then even deliver the files to your digital music player automatically using the RSS feed.
