For the first time in a major Arab-Israeli conflict, the American public has other sources of reality. All research says that young people everywhere regard Twitter as essentially a news service, and via your social network you can easily get served up words and pictures more impactful than anything on TV. By the time many Americans woke up on Sunday, these pictures were of dead Palestinian children.
With the social media boom that has transformed our lives in the last decade, it is no secret that the need to connect with one another is central to our day-to-day existence. Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram, among others, make it easy to communicate in an increasingly busy world, we are now able to Skype across time zones and send videos as events happen.
As the move to mine big data gains momentum, we remain forever free to dig deeper for healing solutions and seek the spiritual growth and better health that a divinely accurate self-assessment can bring.
I consider myself fortunate to be "tech savvy" and realise my life is richer from my being so, and I am hopeful this will become the norm for the majority of older folk in future generations. If you are still resisting...don't. I'll guarantee your life will be enriched if you take up the challenge.... to conquer the computer!
Here I am, trying to purchase an athletic looking CK bra, like the ones all the rage in the 90s. This is day three of my hunt, the shop was sold out and so far I am having little luck online. I will not admit defeat though as Calvin Klein Underwear is currently 'cooler than cool'.
Mobile is the answer... it's how 87%+ of people even in the UK connect with their world, and therefore, brands. Messaging Apps are not some kind of magic hippo chow that lets marketers get up in people's grilles again in the same way in a new place... Messaging and mobile are a filter for fail.
The validation of opinion, though, appears to have surpassed the pursuit of truth as a priority. Conversation recedes when up against the allure of wilfully ignorant point-scoring. How rich of us to hope for a diplomatic resolution in the Middle East.
There's a revolution occurring in how our urban spaces are managed, but success is less likely to come from grandiose projects and more likely to derive from a series of small improvements... Smart cities are still attainable, but we're learning from experience that the big bang approach isn't always best.
Connecting a computer to the internet without a virus protection program is as reckless as leaving your property in the street. It's an open invitation to hackers... they wrangle these herds of infected computers into massive botnets that can bring down whole websites and web-accessed systems at the touch of a button.
We are living in an age where we do almost everything online, from work, communicating with friends (or strangers) and finding love to watching our favourite TV programmes. As such, internet access is available in more public locations than ever before.
Was the study really as sinister as many are making out? I think not... Facebook and other big sites conduct experiments on their users every day, using data to improve their product as well as the user experience... In reality, the #FacebookExperiment is little more than website optimisation.
The Internet is always changing, and for the most part we've grown accustomed to keeping up. With new website platforms and software updates occurring seemingly each day, adapting to the fast-paced Internet scene has become second nature. The latest change, however, is set to disrupt the very nature of the web.
Only about 25 per cent of online consumers impulse buy - a lot less than when they are in store. It's clear that online stores are currently missing a significant revenue opportunity. Rather than trying to define future purchases based on previous consumer behaviour, ambient ecommerce focuses on the 'here and now'.
As long as self-awareness exists alongside the natural human drive of self-improvement it is likely that aesthetic surgery will continue to exist. In some respects it may be considered no more than one end of the spectrum of human grooming and presentation.
We may dream about hot and sunny summer weather in the UK, but the truth is after a few days of heatwave conditions we can't wait for a good storm or two to clear the air... But how much do you really know about thunderstorms? How does that cute little fluffy cumulus cloud turn into a big threatening thunderhead?
Shylock is designed to steal online banking credentials from the PCs of its victims... Shylock first appeared in 2011, aimed mainly at victims in the UK, but subsequently spread to other countries within Europe and to the United States.
Ever since the British government announced the introduction of computer programming into the school curriculum a year ago, a flurry of organisations have established related initiatives to improve the digital literacy of young people across the country.
As a company, Facebook has realised that the gap between "IT" and "the business" has all but disappeared, and that the ethos driving its developer ecosystem must work hand in hand with the business to grow profitability and market share. This represents a major transformation journey encompassing multiple migration initiatives.
