Kayaking “Fabric” Technology Allows For Inflatable Options!

Okay, so you obviously know of kayaking but did you know, due to the technology in so-called “fabric”, now you can purchase such a thing as an inflatable kayak? In fact, these have been on the market for YEARS.

While searching for inflatable kayak reviews, I came across some jaw dropping options. For instance, if you’re not an avid kayaker, you can drop around $150 and get a cheap inflatable option; if you’re an avid fisher, you can go for a fishing kayak. Heck, you can go for a tandem kayak or something really tough and durable like the AHTK kayaks!

Sure, you could drop a few hundred or grand on a hard shelled option but what if you live in a tight spot? Do you have storage room? Furthermore, you gotta think about how you’ll transport it for fun times.

If you are a beginner and curious about kayaking, give the inflatable options a shot. Once you’re comfortable, you can always upgrade to a better option.

And no, these babies, due to modern technology, are made with durable materials. Extremely durable fabric. Some are designed to be used in calm waters while others can be used in tougher conditions.

Make sure you spend time reading reviews in details so you can buy the most perfect option. In fact, if you live in an apartment and space is a concern, these inflatable kayaks can be inflated within 10 minutes and deflated the same way. These things are so durable that even after decent scratches, these things can last a long time, meaning they don’t pop and are quite the safe option. In fact, you can check out your options according to how much weight they can take and how much room there is in one of these. In fact, check out this option:

As aesthetically pleasing as some of these look, make sure you review every aspect before purchasing one. Better yet, if a friend has one, test drive it! Or perhaps you’ve heard of the beastly new “folding kayak” called the Oru… 😉

Preparing For Your Computer To Crash & Burn :(

With computers coming in so many options (laptops, CPUs, apple products, tablets, etc!), it can be overwhelming to decide which one you should pick. Also, with tons of affordable (and well, expensive as well) options also come more chances of your computer going haywire.

A computer is constructed of so many parts: CPU, memory, hard drive, fan, motherboard, screen, wireless cards, and much much more. Believe it or not, it’s realistic to expect any of these parts to go any time. The other half of retail business in the tech sector banks from warranty purchases.

However, if your computer is no longer covered, there are a couple of top notch computer repair shops in the Brisbane area. I found some excellent reviews when I searched for computer repairs Brisbane areas. In fact, they were quick to answer my questions on the phone and explained every bit of the process in detail.

While there are quite a few computer repair shops in Brisbane, I was particularly impressed with the service at this one.

You’ve Experienced An Issue; What Do You Do Now?

The best thing you can do is document the issue or bug you’re experiencing. For instance, if in the middle of your work, your computer restarts, document that. If the computer displays an error or a particular screen, take a picture of it.

Depending on the error messages, a computer IT professional will be able to determine what part of the computer is experiencing the error. It could be a specific part like the hard drive itself, perhaps the memory (RAM) or more.

A couple of things to keep in mind before taking your computer or laptop in is that if possible, back up your files to an external hard drive. The last thing you want is to lose important school papers, work, photographs or videos. If you can’t back these files up, please first talk to your IT professional especially your computer repair guy within Brisbane!

Other things you should know are the build of your laptop or computer. If you bought a certain brand and model from the store, have that information ready. If a friend built it, you can always install free software that will spit out the name of each major part of the computer. Laptop or Tablet? Easy! The brand name should be on several spots on the laptop and the model number, if not completely visible, should be imprinted on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

Making Sure Your Website Is Easy To Use

When non-web designers think of setting up a site, 99% don’t think about the “ease to use” factor of the site. When visitors land on your website, you want to establish a flow of things. The content and buttons and everything on your site should have a purpose, leading the visitor from one piece to another, like cookie samplers leading to the register.

What you don’t want to happen is for the visitor to see a chaotic, hectic website and back out of it and end up on your visitors site!


Believe it or not, content and aesthetics both play an equal part. The first thing you need to do is consult a professional web development team or like this amazing Chicago website designer. Why? Web developers create websites professionally for a living.

This means they eat, breath, and sleep web development. They are up on various trends, web development languages, and much, much more. They keep up with their profession by reading magazines and publications!

A regular business owner will never have the time to keep up with updates to HTML, CSS, WordPress, Drupal, Photoshop, and other developments. It is ridiculous to think that’s possible to do in between managing your products, services, your place of business, clients, and other essential business functions.

why does my code work

Aesthetics, meaning design and user flow, may seem like an easy task to design, but it is not. Sure, you can put up a website. You have plenty of options like WordPress that make it easy to install it, set up a blog or a site, add pages, and then, slap a free or paid theme on it.

But what happens when you don’t have images that are the right size? Or you need to tweak the font or modify the design of that theme?

You might think that using free or cheap software is the way to go but like anything that you want to look clean and professional, it is best to hire a qualified web developer 😉

Do You Want Drones Or Happy Employees In Your Company?

As businesses get bigger, and corporations become, well, more like corporations, it seems like all the fun is squeezed out of such businesses. For instance, there are consultants who can come into your business and monitor how “efficient” the employees are at their jobs. They monitor how an employee is using their time, what their output is, how much time they are spending on various activities such as emailing and how much time is being spent on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.

The truth is, if you squeeze every drop of fun out of work, then productivity will, no doubt, drop. After all, employees are humans and humans aren’t machines or computers or robots.

hate work

As humans, we are meant to have a little bit of downtime in between work, especially computer work. Think about it this way: computers are the one thing that are very unnatural for humans, meaning due to computer work, employees have to sit in their chairs for hours on end. Just thinking about it makes my spine hurt.

So what can be done? It’s okay for your employees not to be “efficient” the whole time. Truth is, a few minutes of interactions, breaks, and downtime will lead to creativity and relaxation. A somewhat easy going environment also breeds happiness and loyalty among employees. In fact, good businesses dedicate trip days or even have functions for the workplace. Gyms are a common workplace in most work places in the UK and the US as well now.

In fact, there are specific entertainers that do this kind of work just for the corporate world. You can hire crystal ball jugglers, fire performers, glow performers, and magicians from JugglingInferno.com.

If you want dedicate employees and amazing output in the long run, treat your workforce well and keep them happy. Some corporations also supply simple snacks and drinks like fruit, teas, and coffees!

No SEO? Well, Say Bye-Bye To 10-20 New Customers… Per MONTH

Allow us to explain…

Unfortunately, search engine optimization has become a term that everyone and their nephews tosses around like dirty, old, spare pennies!

Let’s step back a bit.

What IS SEO?!

SEO simply stands for search engine optimization. Let’s break these fancy terms down a bit. A search engine is anything like Bing and Yahoo (even Facebook and Youtube) that you use to search whatever you need. Optimization is simply optimizing a web page or a web site for the search engines so it has a higher chance of being found.

For instance, if you are a search engine optimisation company in Bournemouth, then you would want people to find your website for terms like “SEO Bournemouth”.

The problem with SEO is that like the topic of weight loss, everyone thinks they know what they’re doing. Business owners think they can launch profit generating social media campaigns along with knowing everything about SEO and ranking their websites. You also have overseas marketers that are looking for easy targets and offering ridiculously amazing results for next to nothing.

Would you buy a Lexus if someone was selling you a brand new one for $2k? Hell no! Because you would KNOW the value of a Lexus (I hope!)

Would you get a root canal from someone who is offering it for a $100? No! Because you’d know it was a scam.

So why would you purchase services from an SEO claiming to provide you with amazing results for $300?

SEO has become a dirty word in our business. Too many people have abused the term and the work is by no means easy. Nothing is worse than clients who KNOW they need your services but are extremely hesitant due to the fact that they’ve been conned by marketers overseas…. without any refunds or results.

How do you know you need online marketing services? Well, just like any other marketing avenue, online marketingis a great friend to have on your side. Imagine how many people look up services and products online. If they can’t find your website, then there goes a whole new set of customers!

At the end of the day, you know whether you need such services or not… but, just know this:

Why Proper Citations Are A MUST For Offline Marketing

With so much information about ranking offline, local businesses, it can be hard to keep one’s head straight. The one main and necessary factor to keep in mind is that Google has never revealed all of its cards. With so many factors coming into play in the ranking algorithm, however, there is one golden rule to follow when it comes to ranking a local business: properly submitting citations!

How To Fill Out Citations Correctly To Rank ASAP

Again, please keep in mind that this pertains to ranking a business website locally for their geographical location. For any such business, it is essential that you find out whether your client has filled and submitted any citations online. If they have, you need to make sure they have followed consistency with their “NAP” (NAP = name, address, phone number).

If you will be the one filling out the citations, remember to be consistent yourself. For every citation you fill out, the name of the business, the address, and the phone number information must be consistent!

For instance, if you submit a citation with this phone number: (555)555-5555, then make the rest of the phone number entries the same! Do not follow up with 555-555-5555.

Every tiny detail here counts.

The same rules must be followed when filling out address for a local business. Do not submit “Suite #101” and then “Suite 101”. This kind of care may seem unnecessary but as a marketer, I have had to correct so many citations, it’s ridiculous.

Why Do Citations Matter?!

With local businesses and ranking their websites for the services they offer, citations build a great deal of trust in the “eyes of Google” and other search engines. Think about it: when dozens of trustworthy directories and sites are displaying all the same consistent information regarding a local business geographically AND pointing to the correct website, there is no confusion about location! Geographical locations plays a major role in rankings and doing this increases your chances of ranking on the first page of Google and Bing for services HIGH.

Which Sites DO I Submit Citations TO?

My first round of citations is always my top twenty general citation sites. Without getting too technical, any site or directory that asks for website information like NAP and more? Consider it a citation!

My top three sites for citations are Facebook (Business Page!), Google, and Yelp. For practice, get these started. Once you fill these three out, you can enter the data in a consistent manner for the rest of them.


Alrighty then! Now that you now all about geographical influence on the local ranking algorithm, if you decide to add videos to your online package, excellent! If you are using Youtube for your client’s videos to be viewed, make sure you input the geographical location when filling out the fields.

I bet you didn’t know that, now did you?

I have found that there are no “Secrets” in the SEO and ranking world; you just need to make sure you do careful, detailed, and consistent work. Now, keep it rollin’, Buster!

Transhumanism: Now You Can Insert LEDs Into Your Hands!

Okay, so if the idea of merging chips, robotics, and humans (think Terminator long term) makes you shudder, then you may not want to read this article or view the image we are about to show here:

Known as the “Northstar V1” chip, this chip is the size of a large coin (very large…) and has been implanted on the back of hands of three people. The chip was developed by Grindhouse Wetware which is composed of programmers, engineers and enthusiasts.

What are the long term implications of this experiment? Are the test subjects vulnerable to any infections?

What if an object hits them in that spot? Ouch!
