Face to Face Business Meetings with CityHour

By | April 26th, 2014|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , |

Over this last week or so I've been investigating  just how easy it is to set up Face to Face Business Meetings with CityHour. I was asked by Alex Lubinsky CEO of TrueBear Corporation to test out the CityHour application (which is available on iOS) to share with you what it does. Yes, this is a sponsored post, as I explained in my last post about CityHour - I am being paid to be a Brand Ambassador for just a short while. Which is fantastic as I love telling you about great applications to help you with your business. City Hour Makes Setting up Meetings so Simple We all know that social media and business networking is very important to our business.  Establishing a connection, interacting with our contacts and getting to know them is all important in creating trust and/or friendships.  However, CityHour expands those connections and takes them that step further, with ease.  No longer are our connections just a number but they are a prospect that wants to meet us. In this post I'm going to show [...]

By | April 14th, 2014|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , |

Previous visitors to Techieminx will know that I regularly review apps or software that I think is interesting or cool. This blog is no different as I look at the powerful business networking app called City Hour. Usually my posts are unsponsored, not paid for, however on this occasion I have been sponsored to test out an iPhone app City Hour. So just so we are all clear, as apparently I do have to make this clear, I am getting paid to let you know about this app and as always it will be an honest report of my findings. City Hour the Powerful Business Networking App City Hour is a free business networking app created by TrueBear Corporation. This app is only available on the iPhone right now, soon to come to the iPad, and also will be on Google Play is to follow. Why is the iPhone first again? People always complain when an app is only available on the iPhone at first, and recently a developer actually explained to me. I'd like to share that with you [...]

Heartbleed – Do I need to change my passwords ?

By | April 10th, 2014|Categories: Tips and Tricks|Tags: , , |

We are all asking because of Heartbleed - do I need to change my passwords. Its been said that many platforms are already sending out emails to customers suggesting that users change their passwords. Heartbleed is a bug that causes a vulnerability in OpenSSL which allows information to be stolen over the last 2 years.  It was called Heartbleed because of the name of the heartbeat extension that when exploited leaks information.  So its like the heart bleeding - get it? Argh darn Heartbleed - Do I need to change my passwords ? This is an email that I got from IFTTT  which stands for - If this then that - which is an application that allows you to connect different web applications or social networks and to create give a formula (recipe) that says something like - if someone follows me on twitter, send them a message.  I used to use this for various things, but I'm just not an auto girl - I like to do these things myself.  And I wasn't sure if it was worth breaking the Twitter rules.  [...]

Where do you get your news? #scredible

By | April 5th, 2014|Categories: Internet Tools, Social Media|Tags: , , , , , |

There have been many reports out recently telling us that 30% of people get their daily news from Facebook.  I think probably the figure is much higher when you include all of the social internet.  There is no need to buy a newspaper anymore when all the news we could ever need is at our fingertips. This got me thinking, where do you get your news? How can you Find News I personally use Google News which often takes me to the  BBC website and a few others for specific news - or if I'm mobile I've recently stuck to Flipboard which is set up to give me all of the news on subjects that I require, and what I like about Flipboard is that you can also Pocket articles to read later, from anywhere, and share to all of your networks. On the PC I do use many different programs like StumbleUpon, Scoop it, Reddit and the list goes on but recently I was asked to join a beta for Scredible and I am really enjoying using that. Elevate [...]
