Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

If you think Google is the only real way to promote your business online – you’re mistaken. The reality is – social media is bigger than ever. And it looks set to continue to grow. While you shouldn’t ignore Google completely – you might be wasting a lot of time (and money) trying to improve your ranking when alternative marketing channels might be a better option.

Someone had recommended that I check it out.  I answer questions on Quora and LinkedIn, since I think there's way too much bad information floating around out there in the marketing arena, and I like being able to share my insights with people since my background - and approach - is a little different.  I eat, sleep and breathe ROI.  

Plus, I like engaging with people to find out what their biggest challenges are and see if there's any way I can help.  I've learned a lot over the years, and it's all based in practical application instead of theory.  If I tried something that bombed miserably, I'm completely OK telling people that.  And yep, it does happen from time to time.

That is interesting. It's always a shock to see the introduction of a new generation. So, now we've got Gen Z. Are hitting the Alphabet next? I'm what's known as a Tweener: 1960 - 1965. Because that Baby Boomer Generation went on far too long...

Translating from one language to another is a pretty standard (but incredible) technology that we're all familiar with. But what about translating to "elephant communication"?

This website translates words, phrases, and emojis into elephant calls, allowing you to send a video of an elephant communicating that word or phrase. I think its a great idea to use technology to raise awareness of not only their amazing social intelligence, but also their decline in recent decades.

I'm fascinated by elephants and think I'll be sending some elephant communication in the near future!

I sincerely hope that nobody records their audio "translations" and then stupidly decides to play them on a mobile phone while on a safari and observing wild elephants.  All it would take is one wrong audio playback to enrage the elephants and result in a potentially lethal encounter.  Similarly, anybody who decides to do the same thing with captive elephants at a zoo might cause the elephants to injure themselves or each other.  Worse still would be playing the mating call instead of "hello" to a bull elephant.

I have previously wondered whether Indian elephants "speak" the same language as African elephants, or the same language with a different "accent", and whether the same would be true for other animals like wolves living on different continents.

Is it possible to have a place where people with different age range will hang together?

It sounds funny, and I think Kyle can also attest to it, but Pokemon Go achieves this. I've done raids that have included elementary aged kids and retirees. I've seen a lot of stories about children playing with their parents and grandparents and rejuvenating their relationships. The key to achieving this balance could be giving the users something on which to focus besides their own social lives. A 16 year old's social interests most likely won't align with a 30 year old's interests, but creating a common goal that interests people of any age can bring their worlds together.

Lyft has been making some exciting strategic partnerships lately - yesterday they announced a partnership with Disney, launching the "Minnie Van", and today they announced a partnership with Amtrak.

Do you have a preference between Uber and Lyft, and why? If you are an Uber fan, would either of these entice you to give Lyft a try?

Haven't used either one yet, but I'm way more inclined to try out Lyft for the same reasons as Alicia noted. Uber seems like they've really not treated drivers and employees well.

Plus, that Minnie Van is pretty awesome and looks like a lot of fun. I'm sure kids will get a real kick out of it! :-)

I used to use Uber because Lyft wasn't available here.  Now that Lyft is available where I live I use them over Uber every time (mainly because of the way they treat their employees, but pickup times are usually faster, too).

It's interesting that every Lyft driver I've had also drives for Uber.

I think they are considering "Tech"  companies when business happens on the internet. It greatly reduces the concept of tech companies and technology.
Technology
1. The branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.
2. the application of this knowledge for practical ends.
3.the terminology of an art, science, etc.; technical nomenclature.
4.a scientific or industrial process, invention, method, or the like.
5.the sum of the ways in which social groups provide themselves with the material objects of their civilization.

I would consider those "tech" companies more related to Innovation, VAS Companies

I agree, it's a fine line as to what you consider a tech company or not.

If VZW is not a tech company, then Apple shouldn't be.  They had about 66% of the sales from iPhone. Only 10% of sales were from Mac.  What about Visa?  That may not be consumer tech, but it is a the backbone for credit card transactions. Before there was a public world wide web, there was visanet.

Google recently announced they'll no longer scan your personal emails for marketing purposes:

Consumer Gmail content will not be used or scanned for any ads personalization after this change.

I wonder if they were facing litigation over that technology.

Apple is no longer just for the tech-savvy millennial and professional crowd. Check out today's product release, where developers as young as 7 and as old as 84 are releasing new apps to the App Store. https://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2017/

Recognizing that digital transformations will never end can be scary, like everything in life is dynamic, it is just another challenge to be faced.

Reconhecer que as transformações digitais nunca acabarão pode ser assustador, porém como tudo na vida é dinâmico esse é mais um desafio para ser enfrentado.

"Digital transformation itself is a thankless task. It is one which is constantly criticized and scrutinized, but there is unlikely to ever be a satisfactory answer to the question. Digital transformation is a journey, according to Whitelock. It is the constant pursuit of remaining relevant and avoiding obsolescence."

Ain't that the truth!

Talk about betraying your user base.

Using an email digest service it owns named Unroll.me, Slice collected its customers’ emailed Lyft receipts from their inboxes and sold the anonymized data to Uber. Uber used the data as a proxy for the health of Lyft’s business.
