WOMEN IN STARTUPS – Progressing beyond gender bias

With not much opinion available on the net, we come to the conclusion that women in startups can be considered as a topic that is probably being given a negligent miss or is being considered a sensitive topic to comment on.

Three unusual yet satisfying apps

Do you identify yourself as Celine Dion, Picasso, and the next Iron Chef? Look no further!

Three unusual yet satisfying apps

With the vast number of mobile apps available today it can be difficult to decide on which ones to download. At a certain point, people may even begin to wonder what the mobile app developers’ motives were for some of products found in store —notably, the app that makes flatulent sounds.

Nonetheless, mobile users will download apps.

While some people may have a rather minimalist approach and only keep a handful of apps they need to survive, others are more willing to explore what’s out there. When technology right in front of us can help us stay connected, be creative, and overall help us live better lives —i.e. apps that remind people to take their medications— then why not take advantage of the cornucopia of apps out there?
