editor’s note

Social media, and Facebook in particular, has been the talk of the news lately and not in a positive light. Many of us have been unknowingly sharing our information about ourselves with internet giants. Some of us may have been vaguely aware, but purposely decided not to think much of it. At the time, it didn’t seem like it could come to much harm. That was until the recent data breach… It’s a fact that information about us is what companies find most valuable, in order to properly find the right customers and target audience. This can beneficial for both. But what needs to be clear is the choice in what we put online that goes to these companies. We wouldn’t want our little ones to suddenly be bombarded with product…

top 5 alexa gadgets & accessories

It’s hard to believe that Amazon Alexa Virtual Assistant has only been in our homes for just three years, seeing as it and its rivals have become so entrenched. Launched in November 2014 as part of the Echo Smart Speaker, Alexa was intended to be akin to the computer from the Star Trek original series – in fact “Computer” is one of the devices’ settable wake-up words. Since then, Alexa has become increasingly connected around our properties, and can now be used to control a bewildering number of products from lighting and heating to door locks and security cameras and is likely to become even further ingrained in our lives. Among the best devices available now are: Insteon Hub While everyone seems to be talking products, the Insteon Hub is looking to control…

Plastics can be broken down by mechanical actions in the environment or may be introduced as very small particles anyway such as microbeads in cleansers, and those particles are now finding their…

the face book drama

Yes, it might not have been the best question for the senate to ask Mark Zuckerberg. For those who understand social media and understand the digital space in which we now operate, it was a question that certainly raised a few eyebrows. Of course, with Zuckerberg’s response being a quite simple “Senator, we run ads”, we can quickly see how maybe not everyone fully understands how social media operates. Yet these people will most likely be signed up and are still using it in some way regardless of their understanding. SO, WHAT ACTUALLY IS THE CASE ALL ABOUT? There are a number of reports as well as conspiracy theories flying around but ultimately and in a quick summary we can say, that in 2014, a personality quiz was developed by University academic…
