Celebrating 4 Years of Strategic Social Networking!
Now reaching well into the 4th year since our inception on the web, I've personally watched this now massive social organization grow from the 2,400 members that existed here when I first joined, to over 114,000 today, and constantly growing! Those 4 years of interacting with the best and brightest of the IT world has proven to me that real influence and authority on the web are not found within links, but rather in our ideas, and even more so in our own voice!

Neo Geo Forums User NeoTurfMasta Gets His Hands on Long Lost Prototype!
A Neo Geo forums user who recently purchased a development board off of Yahoo's Japanese auction site appears to have uncovered a previously unreleased Neo Geo fighting game prototype. The video below shows the game in action, and another video released on Youtube shows the character select screen with unfinished artwork. The game is thought to be the never before released 1997 project titled "Dragon's Heaven." Here's more information and some screen shots:

How To Deal With Rude Customers and Remain Sane!
Some interesting insights for those in the customer service industry. Often we're told when dealing with irate customers who're beyond rude to "Remain Calm", and "Don't Take it Personally", but often these are things that are easy said than done. It takes real experience to learn how to handle rough situations with customers, especially when you're often dealing with people you don't know.

Let's face it, we've all likely been the irate customer at some point in our lives, and if there's one thing I cannot stand, it's being given an apology with no real positive solution. As the article states, "A good apology accepts responsibility. It provides real details about what happened and what you’re doing to prevent it from happening again."
Yep! Real sincere apologies always lead to real solutions!
Dealing with a rude customers can turn a whole day into a nightmare. Here are a couple of tips helping to gain rudeness immunity!

+Davina Ngei I know what you mean. I can't count how many times I've had customer service reps tell me, "I'm sorry", yet they do absolutely nothing to help fix the problem. It's like they're just leading us along until we hang up the phone. I've had countless times I've contacted ebay's customer service and hung up the phone because I realized the CS I was speaking to didn't care to help. I call back and get someone different, and all of sudden the new CS wants to help and finds a solution.

Adblocking Is More Popular Than ever, But Is It Costing You Money?

You either support #adblocking or you don’t!

Recent stats however show that people are now more aware of adblocking software and are willing to use it.

With this in mind, it’s getting increasingly harder to see why online #advertisers are still backing a disruptive user experience to generate data and #leads.. rather than working harder on their #creativestrategy to attract a core base of targeted customers that will help them grow in the long-term.

Getty Images Accuses Google of Promoting Photo Piracy!
Yep, Google has been robbing us of our images too! Getty's Complaint is that Google provides the ability for individuals to download images directly within its image search results, without sending users to their sites. The problem stems from the fact that, when users click on an image based search result, Google takes the user to an intermediary page rather than the publisher's website, and they provide the ability for the user to download the image directly. This robs publishers of traffic and revenue and we've long been concerned with Google's blatant disregard for others intellectual property.

Last month alone we had 328,778 impressions for our graphics in Google's image search results, and we received just 599 clicks, and it's because of that intermediary page. Google should be sending people directly to sites when users click on an image, not to an intermediary page. Google does this to keep traffic on their search results and away from publishers sites. The losses for us are incredible to say the least. Why is Google serving our content to users outside of our websites? They might as well just scrape an entire article and throw their ads on it! They're crooks. Google is earning tens of billions annually from ad revenue, yet all the publishers like us are flat broke.

Whatever happened to "Don't Be Evil?" I guess that doesn't apply to Google. We all work to publish content so Google executives can buy fancy cars and private islands, while the rest of us starve to death.

Google gave Getty only two choices: accept the new image format, or opt out of its image search altogether. In response, I'm going to give Google only 2 choices, either respect the intellectual property rights of others or I and the rest of your own social network will turn against you!

Getty represents hundreds of thousands of artists around the globe that rely on the sales of their images in order to feed their families! Google has made it clear, they don't care.
Getty Images, the US photography agency, has accused Google of enabling photo piracy and undermining its business. Getty will file a formal complaint with the European Union's antitrust commission...

+Michael Pearson But without publishers, there would be no Google search. They need publishers as much as the publishers need them. Even if they yanked publishers sites our of their image results, this doesn't make up for the $billions they've already stolen from them over the last few years.

Sure, Google could start yanking sites content out, but what good is a search engine if there's nothing to search for? Google doesn't publish much of anything themselves, they rely on the publishers for content. Interesting insights you gave though, thanks for your feedback Michael!

Hi Everyone! 

I recently made a full review on the very first  #DynastyWarriors  game for the  #Sony   #Playstation  (Link Attached) 

As my channel is going to include more from the series in the future, I have decided to promote my Dynasty Warriors videos around on Google+ as I am a huge fan of the franchise myself and I'm really starting to use Google+ a lot more myself.

I am currently working on a full review for "Romance Of The Three Kingdoms" for the NES.

Anyway, if you'd like to see the first game in the franchise, give this video a click and take a look for yourself, and if you want to discuss anything just pop a comment below and I'll get back to you :)
