The iPhone market is beginning to actually lose public support for the next latest and greatest mobile device, the Samsung Galaxy S4 and they are doing some amazing marketing for their devices. The latest YouTube viral video about their product shows off the power of the camera by tracking the game contestant’s eye movement. If they can stare at the S4 for sixty minutes, avoiding shifting their gaze for even a moment with intentional distractions, they will win their own Galaxy S4.
At first glance, John Dyer’s Texas Bible plugin looks like a joke, but there’s more to it than simple fun and games.
The Texas Bible Plugin is a Google Chrome extension that will change all the second person plurals.
Here’s an example of how it works:
It’s called the Square Stand and they are calling it “the register reinvented.”
This looks like something you would see in a Sci-Fi film!
The Square Stand claims it’s the easiest way to run your business, but could it be used to easily collect Sunday morning tithing as more and more people are going mobile?
I remember seeing the dramatic television ads as a kid.
“Friends don’t let friends drink and drive.”
They were always dramatic and very persuasive.
As bad and fatal as drinking and driving is, there’s a new epidemic that is now claiming more teens lives.
Have you seen it on Instagram?
These ChurchMag wallpapers keep getting better and better.
It’s been a huge blessing to have such a talented and godly guy like Marcus a part of our community.
This month, Marcus shared a Photoshop tutorial along with this awesome wallpaper for the month of June:
ROAR is in the business of building apps that churches, non-profits and organizations love.
You dream it, they build it.
ROAR is more than just a app developer, though, they are a company brimming with a vision have the voice of churches and ministries heard.
Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with ROAR CEO Matt McKee and talk about the Church, technology and learn more about the heart of ROAR:
I struggled with attention/focus issues. I was that kid in the back of the room who couldn’t keep still/quiet.
Now that I’m older, I’ve tried to find ways to help me manage my issues. One thing I’ve always wanted to try is a “quiet room.” I think that it would be helpful for me, force me to focus and calm down.
Or maybe it would drive me insane. It’s a toss-up.
Apparently, the quietest room in the world—and that’s according to Guinness—is so quiet that many have reported having hallucinations while in the room for extended periods of time. Housed at Orfield Laboratory in Minnesota, the “anechoic chamber” is 99.99% sound absorbent, and the current record length of time spent in the room is only forty-five minutes! That doesn’t seem like much, but according to the story reported by the Daily Mail, we actually use sound to help us get our bearings and to respond to our environment. The article quotes the president of the company, Steven Orfield, as saying:
The Internet of Things. It’s that tantalizing idea that the next wave of internet-like interconnectivity is between our appliances and cars and devices—the things we own.
It’s a sprinkler system that talks to the moisture sensors in the yard + the Weather Channel, or how our smoke detector might develop a friendlier relationship with the toaster. Or how my car keys might find themselves. Please.
Bill Wasik at Wired magazine has June’s featured article on the status of the “physical internet,” which is more than just a Jetsons-like take on home automation. Companies like GE are using sensors and thousands of points of data per second to increase the efficiency of tricky manufacturing plants, while location-aware consumer systems are alerting the coffee bar to start your espresso when you walk in and auto-charge your virtual Starbucks card. You only gotta flash your pretty caffeinated smile.
Wasik describes three milestones on the way to a more physically automated world: Continue Reading…
