We’ve started using the iPad to stream movies to the AppleTV so that we can watch them on the big screen.
It’s one thing to stream a show we’ve bought from the iTunes store or a clip off YouTube. Those are very straightforward.
But what about other (third party) video files?
It’s hard for me to grasp that in 2013 we still need to talk about “click here” as a hyperlink. (Just say No!)
Look at this promotional email from Top Food & Drug:
All I did was swipe to wake-up … and my paperwhite Kindle presented this ominous message in plain Courier-like type:
“Collecting information. May take a min…Will restart when done…Please wait…”
As I waited (more than a minute), I started a search: <Kindle collecting information restart wait>.
Of course it’s a bit self-serving, but Google recently released data on mobile search. One conclusion is intriguing: most mobile phone searches happen while we are in our homes. Not on-the-go. Not at work. In our homes.
Is this because the phone is in our hands and we are looking to go “out” for dinner, for example? Is it because we’re watching TV and want to know more info about an actor or director? Is it because we are bored? (All of the above.)
I just booked a car on Hertz. I’m a GoldClub person, have been for decades. This means that Hertz knows where I live.
I got a promo/suggestion to enroll to use Hertz’s alternative to ZipCar (“on demand“). When I clicked “enroll”, Hertz delivered a reservation form not an enrollment form.
