I'm pretty sure you know that Word of Mouth is the lifeblood of business. So what are you doing to manage your online reputation? I got the chance to talk with Brendan King, CEO of VendAsta and he gave me some great tips. Here's a recording of our conversation.

Are you targeting an audience outside your native tongue? App developer are starting to. 

According to Forbes, "Based on One Hour Translation’s in-the-wild stats, languages most in demand for app translation right now are: Spanish (60%), German (45%), French (40%), Portuguese (30%), Italian (25%), Dutch (22%), Korean (20%), Japanese (15%), Chinese (12%)."

I will spare you the internal cussing in my head if this actually happens.
Microsoft is in serious discussions to buy Mojang, the Swedish company behind the popular "Minecraft" videogame, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

Wow! Thank you for putting so much time, effort, and detail into this tutorial. It really helped me understand the how and the why of putting an animation together. The bit about timing and stretching the keyframes out to 93 frames was a lightbulb moment for me :)

Design inspiration can come from anywhere, even sites about the NSA. Take note of the way the text moves on the screen in sync with the video and how the video clips auto play when you scroll to specific points on the page.  #webdesign  
In the last five months, the NSA's surveillance practices have been revealed to be a massive international operation, staggering in scope. But how do all of the NSA's programmes fit together – and what does it mean for you?

Enjoy what you do.
Introduction
Howdy! My name is Charles McKeever. I was born in a small town with big ideas. I joined the Marines at 17. By 23 I was on to college and at 28 I was running my own consulting business. 

I've been working with computers since I was 10 years old and to this day, everything about them just makes me feel all happy inside. These days I like building websites using WordPress, continually studying sales and marketing, building mobile apps, and teaching myself animation.

I like people who don't whine and I have a hard time doing nothing. When I'm not on the computer, I'm either playing video games or training for a marathon.

Hit me up, I'd love to connect with you.
Bragging rights
I have an awesome wife, two incredible kids, a goofy dog, and I'm the host of the weekly Corona Geek Hangout.

The team was very professional. They answered all my questions, kept me updated up to date, and worked hard to get my family into the house we wanted. If you're looking for someone to help you secure your VA loan, these guys will take care of you.
