And I wanted current and potential clients to know exactly how much my social media and digital marketing services cost. While most shops hide their prices, I want to show the world the costs of Root Digital Marketing's services.

So without further ado, here they are. If you're interested in our services and want to learn more about how we can grow your business, give us a holler. #digitalmarketing #indiana

I could see Apple or an Android Wearable company buying out this company and its patents. "Aria module will bring gesture control to Android Wear and Pebble Time" http://www.androidauthority.com/aria-gesture-android-wear-610594/
We’ve seen multiple different approaches to smartwatch design over the last few years, with some companies like Pebble taking the button control route, while platforms like Android Wear rely on touch and voice. Looking for a third option? Aria is an add-on module that you clip onto your Android Wear or Pebble Time watch, allowing you to control either of these platforms with various gestures. So how does it work? The Aria measures the movement...

I think users will warm up to the new Twitter algorithm while marketers will change their tactics. Some may promote tweets while others will tweet more and others will filter their tweets and tweet only the best content. 
When I first saw the news via Tweets in my Twitter stream that Twitter was doing away with the very thing that broke the news of Twitter getting rid of their Twitter stream, I was concerned. I immediately tweeted out a picture of the infamous fail whale with the hashtag #TwitterRIP. I agreed with...read more

I was seriously considering the new Fire TV but will probably buy the new Chromecast just to spite them. I like Chromecast for the price and the ability to cast content from my phone or tablet and I like the new Fire TV because of the integration of Alexa. 
Amazon has issued memos to merchants warning them that they will soon be unable to sell Chromecast and Apple TV on the mega-shop, and the excuse they gave for making the move is one of the dumbest things we've ever heard.

Looking forward to seeing this launch. Especially interested in the upgradeable tech guts that it will supposedly have. "The Carrera Wearable 01 will be TAG Heuer’s first Android Wear device" http://www.androidauthority.com/carrera-wearable-01-tag-heuer-first-android-wear-device-613083/
Luxury watch maker TAG Heuer's high-end Android Wear device isn't slated to launch until November 2015, but it looks like a few early details are starting to surface regarding the wearable. In an interview with Wearable, TAG Heuer CEO Jean-Claude Biver outed that the company's first Android Wear device would be called the Carrera Wearable 01. The Wearable 01 will be largely influenced by the recently-launched Carrera Heuer 01 (pictured above). ...
