The Rise of Ambient Energy Harvesting

There has been a new hope that is rising on the edge of technology where ambient energy has for the first time powered a cellphone. Ambient energy technology is an energy field that is created by all living things everywhere. Now, since the energy we are talking about is all around us, it is a force that can be used to charge our cellphones by only the use of radio waves and not with a battery. The latest development has been ‘ ambient energy harvesting’ which has sparked interests in the energy field.

What is so important with ambient energy?

To show you how important this development is, the University of Washington have invented the cell phone that does not need batteries. This is a shift from the era of chargers and power backups and phones that lose charge. This new phone works differently by harvesting ambient light or radio signals to power the phone. The phone functions just like the ones we have; it can receive calls and even use some apps like Skype.

A new cellphone

The University of Washington has come up with a cellphone that works by consuming almost close to no power. To come up with a phone that consumed very little power for it to run had to shift the mindset of how to approach the development of a smartphone that can adapt to the new source of energy.

Functions of the new phone

The phone does the simple operations and requires pressing a button to listen and speak. The energy that is harvested from ambient energy is not enough to allow a user to speak and listen at the same time. In essence, the power that is being harvested by the ambient light or radio is in the range of 1 to 10 microwatts. It is tough to achieve the real-time application of the functionalities of the phone.

The future holds bright for this technology as it will increase the range of operations on the phone and also have more features for users to experience.

Video Value For Marketers With Talk Fusion

Talk Fusion offers marketers one thing. That is to easily use video in their emails. There is a lot of reasons as to why video is very valuable in marketing. When people think about it, there are more reasons than they could count. On the surface level, people would rather look at a video that demonstrates the product as opposed to reading tons of text. This is not so much because reading is harder than it is that some people do not have time to read about a product. Also, many companies are using video to describe their products. A company that stays with text is a little bit behind.


One thing that people who are marketing need is to figure out what it is that will get them to pay attention to an ad. They must also figure out what would get them to click on the ad and buy the product that is being promoted to them. Then they have to proceed with those answers in mind. One of the best pieces of advice that a marketer like Bob Reina can give is to market to someone they way they themselves would want to be marketed. This can help them succeed.

Coffee Culture’s New Favorite Son: Organo Gold

These days it seems that coffee has entered the minds–and cupholders–of Americans everywhere. Organo Gold, or Organo as it is now called, knows this as much as anyone and has carved out a place for itself in the coffee world. While the culture of coffee has been ever expanding since the 1960s, nowhere is this more evident than the Pacific Northwest. It’s not just Starbuck’s either. Local coffee shops thrive on signature roasts, unique pouring techniques, and lively culture. View Organo Gold’s profile on

Coffee Culture Explosion

While Starbuck’s pride’s itself on having the same cup of coffee for you anywhere you go, these local shops separate themselves through personal expression, mindful business practices, and stylish brewing techniques. This is a reflection of the consumer, as well: they want to know where their coffee was harvested and roasted. Perhaps they are even looking for a single origin brew from a specific region of the world. No doubt many modern coffee drinkers are sophisticated in their tastes and selection when it comes to their morning brews.

Enter Organo Gold

Organo gold dived into the coffee world headfirst in 2008. Seeing opportunity in the market, they wanted to bring a more healthy lifestyle to your morning cup. Products such as the Gourmet Organic King of Coffee contain healthy supplements like the Ganoderma Lucidum Spore Powder. Visit to know more about Organo Gold.

This approach is not limited to coffee either. Organo Gold has a whole product line of teas, single-serve brews and flavored beverages. In addition, there are nutritional shakes, grape seed oil, mycelium and the aforementioned spore powder to help you feel great and improve your lifestyle.

Opportunity in Coffee

Organo gold even has opportunities for those interested to join the team and become Organo Gold Distributors. Big rewards such as Cruises for high-performing agents have incentives in their sales model. For lovers of coffee and Organo, there just might be literal gold at the bottom of that morning cup.


The Support for ‘Red Alert for Net Neutrality’

Small and large tech companies have decided to support the Net Neutrality Red Alert, which is a movement that is pioneered to convince the U.S Senate to vote to overturn the FCC repeal on regulations of net neutrality.

The industry spoke loudly against Ajit Pai, the FCC chairman’s plan to repeal the net neutrality protections of the Obama-era. If these regulations are repealed, ISP’s are going to charge people even more to access the usual services we are enjoying now. There is going to be a split in traffic, where we are going to have slow and fast lanes where the first party services will have priority over the others.

This is a growing drama that will not stop playing like a game of table tennis. “Last Week Tonight” is claimed to have taken down the FCC’s comments section, while other claims stated that there were bots that used the comments to promote an illusion that Americans were supporting the aspect of net neutrality repeal which practically is not the case. There are very many organizations that came up to oppose the plan of the FCC, but the commission did not change its objective.

Since then, there have been regulations on net neutrality that have been implemented by individual states to create a system that is similar to the neutral system. Although this approach has its own downfalls because there are states that will offer advanced protections on net neutrality, while others will survive on their own, the only way to achieve a comprehensive net neutrality set of rules is by overturning the repeal by the FCC.

There is an ongoing fight by Fight for Future to overturn the FCC’s repeal, and that is why an announcement was made that was named Red Alert for Net Neutrality. This alert will be placed on participating websites on their websites to alert users about it. This alert will spread so that people can make their voices heard.

One Dead in a Recent E. coli Outbreak

One Dead in a Recent E. coli Outbreak
A report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday the 2nd of May, 2018, stated that three new States, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Utah, have reported cases of illness linked to E. coli. This strain of bacteria, the Shiga Toxin-producing E. coli, is generally considered more toxic. Therefore, a higher than expected number of casualties have been hospitalized since the first case got reported. Already, 102 cases are confirmed. Off this 51 % require hospitalization as compared to the 31% case that usually gets registered in other strains.
Fourteen people are already diagnosed with the hemolytic uremic syndrome, a kind of kidney failure that affects about 10% of all E. coli infected people. Twenty-three additional cases of the infection including one death in California were announced on Wednesday bringing the number of sick people to a hundred and twenty-one. The state of California’s Health Department, however, refused to share more details on the patient who died. A total number of twenty-five states have been affected so far.
In a recent article by the Verge, https/, the CDC urged the American population to refrain from eating lettuce whose origin is not precise. The advice is inclusive of whole heads of romaine, chopped romaine, baby romaine, salad and salad mixes containing romaine lettuce, bearing in mind that packaging does not always include growing regions.
The investigative task force of the CDC has identified at least one farm, Harrison Farms of Yuma, Arizona, to be a probable germ source but insists many cases are as a result of romaine grown in other farms. The symptoms of the infection by the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli set in three to four days after the consumption of contaminated food products. The indications include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and vomiting. On rare instances, symptoms would include fatigue, fever, and unusual bleeding. Most people recover, but some cases prove severe and can be fatal.

The Most Downloaded iPhone App And No, Its Not Facebook

Apple iPhone is one of the top smartphones in the world, and there are millions of apps that one can download from the Apple Store. Even though Facebook-owned Whatsapp messenger is among the top apps that have been downloaded by the Apple users, it is a China-based music video app with the name Tik Tok that tops the chart of the most downloaded app in the world. The app already has 45 million downloads within a matter of three months. It seems that Facebook is slowly losing its top status as other Chinese apps such as Baidu and Tencent are also gaining in popularity quite fast.

Other than Tik Tok and Whatsapp, there are a few other apps that are quite popular. One of them is the Google Map that saw around 22.4 million downloads in first three months of 2018. Another favorite app in the top 10 is the iQiyi created by Chinese tech company Baidu that saw 22.6 million downloads in the first quarter of 2018. According to the company, they have more than 480 million users who spend around 5.6 billion hours every month on their app. Even though Facebook has lost its top position, it is still on the top 10 list on the App Store. Another app that is not far behind is Instagram that has been downloaded about 31 million times in the past three months. Whatsapp, the popular messaging service, owned by Facebook, also has 33.8 million downloads in the first few months of 2018 with 1.5 billion monthly users.

YouTube has continuously been one of the top apps with 35.3 million downloads in 3 months of 2018. The free app comes second on the top downloaded apps list from the Apple Store. While this is the most recent list, it is to be seen if there will be more apps that would be able to overtake the top ones as we move into the second quarter of 2018.

Windows 10 Getting New Screenshot Tool in Next Update

Microsoft’s flagship operation system, Windows 10, will be getting an update in the near future known as Build 17661. Codenamed “Redstone 5”, there isn’t much known about exactly what we’ll be getting from the update. Among the number of fixes and features being introduced in this update that we are aware of, though, is a new screenshotting tool currently in testing this week.

Given that Windows 10 itself has so far been devoid of any efficient means of taking and sharing screenshots, various third-party apps like ShareX have routinely taken the stage to fill this need. Microsoft seems to have finally taken the hint that users would like this kind of feature in their operating system, introducing Screen Sketch as its own app.

Previously, Screen Sketch was simply a part of the Windows Ink software suite oriented for pen computing. With this update, Screen Sketch will be separated from Windows Ink, giving users easier access to screenshotting without losing any of the functionality that made it worthwhile before, namely the ability to draw on and annotate the screenshots taken through it.

The command to initiate Screen Sketch will become “winkey + shift + S”, which will bring up an area selection tool for users to pick how much of the screen they wish to capture. Once selected, a notification will give users the option to annotate and share their screenshots directly through the app. Traditional keyboard users will also have the option to replace the normal “winkey + printscreen” command for screenshotting with Screen Sketch, too.

Additional features of the update include tweaks to the control panel, Task View, and File Explorer, and new additions to Focus Assist’s ability to suppress notifications while you’re busy (it now blocks any that try to bother you while fullscreen in a game). More information is expected to come out during Microsoft’s Build developer conference next week.

Facebook Embracing Democracy

A third of the world population is on Facebook and I think this next question will sound familiar to you. Have you been on Facebook scrolling down on some posts or comment and thought to yourself that comment is not right? Okay, Facebook too has been doing the same. The new additional feature of an ‘up’ or ‘down’ depending on what you view this comment to be.
According to Facebook spokeswoman Facebook has roles this programme only in Australia and Newzealand. In February it was rolled out in the United States in a small scale to test its functionality. The social media mogul has not actually decided whether it will roll out the new feature to its entire global users estimated to be in the region of two billion. How really does this new feature work?
For those who have accounts on Facebook have a look at it it is quite straightforward. For this who have no experience with Facebook please visit When a post is posted by a user there are usually other options for another user to give their comment on what they think. Another feature is to share the post to other users or site and even like the post. The problem with this feature is that the comments given by users can be seen in accordance with the time posted, with the recent post featuring as the lowest on the log. This has some problems with users because the topmost comment might not necessarily be the best comment that carries the mood of the post. However, Facebook has realized this and trying to fix it with the new feature.
The new feature brings democracy to Facebook letting people choose what comments they prefer to be at the top. This comments will feature in terms of the votes they get to be on top or on the bottom. The feature, according to Facebook, will encourage users to give positive comments and increase the user experience. The same feature has been seen to work on Reddit.

Bloatware deal between Verizon and Samsung

Yahoo has had a pretty steep fall from grace over the years, and if that is not all, the company has now been relegated to becoming a bloatware on Android phones across the world, thanks to Verizon and Samsung who have come up with a new advertising deal.


Reuters state that the deal is going to load a number of useless apps on Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9plus. Some of the useless apps include Go90, YahooFinance, Yahoo Sports and Oath Newsroom, which is a curation app that showcases the headlines of news across the internet, but ideally from HuffPost and Yahoo News which are all Verizon owned companies.


The deal between the two corporations has Oath as the content partner for Bixby which is a first party VA (Virtual Assistant) for Samsung. If that is not enough, Oath and Samsung are going to allow native ads to be displayed at the center of the news feed. The revenue from the deal will be split between the two companies, as they bank some cash anytime you tap on the app mistakenly while you are scrolling.


The Oath CEO Tim Armstrong stated that ads will now be closer to the consumer, which is indirectly relevant to the needs of a customer. Tim continued to state that there is nothing better than being direct to a consumer on the home screen of a smartphone and in the app itself.


Immediately when Verizon acquired Yahoo, AOL and many other companies, this deal was inevitable. By acquiring Yahoo for $4.5 billion and AOL for $4.4 billion, Verizon became a major contributor to the advertising world. Now it is playing the cards in its favor without understanding the needs of the customer.


Bloatware is not interesting at all, and Samsung is loading them up in their phones with unnecessary apps that users do not even use to the point that the Shanghai Consumer Rights Protection Commission filed a lawsuit.
