New Google Glasses

Posted on 22. Jun, 2012 by in Consult

The glasses run a form of Google’s Android operating system that appears to be both voice-controlled and, less familiarly, view-controlled: A bar of small icons floats just above the wearer’s line of sight, and by looking upward, the wearer can interact with the icons to view the weather, send text messages, and do much of what a smartphone can do. In addition to smartphone functionality, however, the Google glasses attempt to interact with the world that it sees in front of and around the wearer, “augmenting” or supplementing the reality that the wearer experiences.  Read more.

I recommend this software because you can:

  • Create & collaborate
  • See what each person is entering as they type it
  • Your documents are stored online and not lost Read More…

Ordered New Business Cards

Posted on 25. May, 2012 by in Consult

I just ordered new business cards*.  It’s fun to put together an updated look! You know I had to pick a red background since my company is named “Reddin’ Up”.

I wanted to include my primary contact information — name, phone, email and website addresses. This year I included my QR code. I’m sure you have started to see these codes on everything now.

QR code refers to Quick Response Code, meaning that our lives are so busy we can’t take the time to type in a website address anymore. Read More…
