The best things in life are free. Consider all the free things that you enjoy for a moment; air, water, sight, life, language, etc. How nice it is to breath fresh air, to feel it blow across your face. To see the leaves melodically sway in the breeze. To taste a clear glass of water. To be alive with a language you can communicate with.

To see the leaves melodically sway in the breeze. To taste a clear glass of water. To be alive with a language you can communicate with. Price, is an invention. It's a way to regulate how much one man does for another. It's not natural...

Don't like to write? Blogging will help you become a better writer and make the process more enjoyable.
I started blogging in April of 2011. At the time, I had a hard time writing anything! I would stare at the blinking cursor, type a word or two and erase it. I thought that I had nothing to say. Four years of blogging taught me that the truth is quite the opposite. As many of you know, writing is a requirement in school. When I was in school, I felt that there was no assignment more laborious than writing an essay. I couldn't write an...

Just because your using a Mac doesn't mean you can take a snooze on security. I am currently rethinking what security steps I should be taken while using my Mac.
I haven’t used an antivirus software since 2007 when I switched to Mac. Like many Mac users I believed that OS X is impervious to viruses and other security threats. But, I have come to the conclusion that this is a flawed belief. Security threats are not limited to viruses and spyware, there are phishing and JavaScript threats too. These threats affect all operating systems connected to the web, because the attacks are on the web n...

No you can't just take photos from Google and use them in your blog or marketing campaign - that's copyright infringement. But, there's good news, there are a list of free sites that allow you to use their photos, royalty free!
Not all of us know this, but you can't just take photos from Google and use them in a website or marketing campaign – it's illegal. For those who already knew that you'd be surprised by how many don't. Photos, like other creative works, are copyrighted by their creator the moment they are created. The intellectual property rights belong to the creator unless willfully surrendered. Some photographers have taken steps to ensure their ...

When was the last time you looked at your followers on Twitter? I'll make a guess that they're mostly bots. And that when you tweet you only get likes from people thousands of followers trying to tempt you into following too. 
Over the past few months, I've come to the realization that we are literally talking to ourselves on Facebook and Twitter. The days when all of your posts were seen by everyone in a live feed – are over. Now there are nifty algorithms that quietly pigeonhole your posts when you blurt out too much in one day. Have you taken a look at your Twitter followers lately? They're mostly bots! And you thought your tweets were that awesome. May...

Want a blue Twitter verification badge? Who doesn't. Twitter is building a social caste system, where only a select few are heard.
Sometimes you can't help craving the blue badge of honor; the official sign of being verified on Twitter. That little blue badge is online gold. It is the online equivalent to knighthood; the difference between Sir Robin and Robin – the online peasant. If you don't have a blue badge by your name, what Twitter is really saying – you are no one. This is a social caste system. By definition you do not have the power to change your statu...

Most people access the internet through their mobile phone. The era of desktop websites is rapidly declining. Time to consider a mobile first design approach.
Let's face it, our readers prefer purchasing a new iPhone every other year than buying a computer. Computers are for nerds. There I said it. In 2015, designing a website for desktops and laptops when our readers will only view it on their iPhone is embarrassing to say the least. So, when are we going to start designing with the predominate mobile audience in mind? It's the dominating statistic: 61% of my website viewers are on mobile...

The Amazon Music app is giving away $25k in gift cards to a random streamer playing music from their app this week. 
I've been a loyal iTunes user and now Apple Music subscriber, only deviating to Spotify for a short time. But, Amazon Music's 25k Sweepstakes is making the app irresistibly tempting. I may not win the sweepstakes, the chance to win is always worth a shot, but the real reason I'm interested in Amazon Music is cost. With Apple Music, I'm paying for a separate family subscription, but with Amazon Music it is included at no additional c...
