Even though it's been more than 3 years since the death of Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs, his presence is still felt in the industry he helped start. Whether you use a PC, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone, there is some of Steve Jobs inside these devices. If you buy music online, Jobs was responsible for revolutionizing the way that music is bought and sold online. He even had a hand in bringing digital animation to fruition with his acquisition of Pixar. When it comes to revolutionizing the technological world in which we live, you'd be hard pressed to find an area in which Steve did not have an impact. In this article from  Working the Web to Win we will look at how different the world would be had he not come along, as well as how his legacy is likely to continue for decades to come.

Business professionals, small business owners and even CEO’s of large corporation’s find LinkedIn to be the go to resource for business today. Yet having said all that, most LinkedIn users never even try to take advantage of its many features. I have heard people say “it’s a lot to learn” or they feel overwhelmed by LinkedIn’s features. I call these features the “Eight Great LinkedIn Secrets”, not because someone would have to kill you if you learned about them – I say it because they are hidden in plain sight. Business professionals jump right over these features as if they weren’t there. Well, in today’s blog, I will spell out the features you need to understand and use. These must “know” features will get you in touch with the connections you seek and make your LinkedIn experience worthwhile every time you use it.

Dawn of the Drones

The military loves them, Amazon covets them and millions of civilians own them.  I’m talking about drones, otherwise known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).  Not since the dawn of manned flight more than 100 years ago, has a topic so enthralled the public and worried the federal government.  The FAA currently has its hands full trying to manage the booming airline industry where 21st century jumbo jets are still being vectored to all the cardinal points of the compass by 1970’s technology.  The last thing they want to have to wrestle with are potentially tens of thousands of UAVs crisscrossing the friendly skies.  It’s one of the things that give bureaucrats indigestion.
