It’s fair to say that technology is beginning to take over every aspect of the business. If you asked a business owner what the important part of their company was in 90’s they probably would have said their staff. Now, it’s quite common for owners to express their reliance on technology and determine it as the most important factor within their business model. So what role is technology playing and it’s prime position in the heart of the modern business.
Many people often ponder the definition of a “startup.” Is a startup just a company that is only just getting going, or is it something that has the potential to grow into something that changes the lives of millions of people? Unless you’re the new McDonalds, it’s unlikely that your startup restaurant is going to change the world. But if you’re a new internet company or artificial intelligence outfit, then you just might.
The problem for many startups in the latter category is that they lack distinctiveness. On the one hand, they’re offering an innovative product, but on the other, their branding is confused, and they’re having little impact on consumers in the real world.
The good news is that there are plenty of ways that you can make your startup more distinguished, even if your product is technical. You don’t have to be another “.bit” or “.tech” enterprise: you can be something unique, like Google or Apple
There are so many ways that you can make the working day more enjoyable and productive for your employees. From boosting morale with rewards and encouraging collaborative working to injecting some fun and establishing clear directives, as the boss, you should have a range of tricks up your sleeve. One surefire way to simplify processes and improve efficiency is to invest in technology. Technology doesn’t always have to replace manpower. In many cases, it can enhance the performance of the individual and in turn, make your company more productive and profitable. If it’s been a while since you bought new kit or looked into what kinds of software programs and systems are available, it may be time to tech your team to the next level. Here are just some of the benefits of modern technology.
For the past couple of years, phone consumers have always looked for a concrete answer. That answer relates to the question about which one is better, Android or Apple?
Usually, it is impossible to agree on everything because Android and Apple both have pros and cons that some people like and other hates. For example, the freedom of a Samsung device is a feature that the majority of users find attractive.
Still, it’s time to put the conversation to bed once and for all because it has gone on too long. Quite simply, an iPhone is without a doubt the king of mobile technology in this decade. How can we be so sure, you ask? Well, it’s thanks to the reasons below.
Without further ado, here is why Apple is winning the race and iPhones are the best handsets on the market.

The world wasn’t made for human beings, in fact, it wasn’t made for anything or anybody; it just is. It's weather, climate, tectonic plates, volcanoes and tornadoes would be here, as powerful as we know them, even if we weren’t here. It’s amazing then, how humanity has come to become the rule of all we see. We may not be the apex predator with strength, speed and reflexes like the animals we share this planet with, but our minds are perhaps the most powerful entities in the known universe. That’s not an exaggerating by any stretch of the imagination because the human brain can contemplate the world around us, chemicals, gases and the amazing laws of physics. We have progressed and advanced technology, so much so that now, instead of just making our lives easier and faster, we allow ourselves to live longer. From the healthcare industry, car industry and the energy industry, technology is now being designed and produced purely to improve safety to increase the average life longevity. It’s amazing to think how technology, can be harnessed to give us more time on earth, but it’s very real, and it’s something should be talked about because our future depends on it.
There’s absolutely no reason in this day and age businesses should have a slow internet connection.
Any business, big or small, whatever industry, should have an internet connection that’s as fast as possible. Here’s why!

Protecting your kid from online dangers is a genuine test for parents nowadays. While social media has turned out to be progressively well known for expanded communication and simple access to data, there are some drawbacks and conceivable dangers in the digital world. Studies demonstrate that more than 51% of kids who surf web have been cyber bullied at least once in their lives.

If you’re a tech fan, the idea of investing in an electric car may have crossed your mind. If you’re not sure whether to take the plunge, hopefully, this guide could help you to make a decision.
Nearly everyone likes to have a space dedicated to their hobby. Someone really into movies is going to have their home cinema, someone really into books is going to have a reading cubby or maybe even a whole library in the office. If you really love gaming, then stop depriving yourself. You can create a den that not only enhances your gaming experience but will make you the envy of most gamers you know. But how do you make the best of it?
Building a tech business is not an easy feat, yet so many embark on a hefty journey every year to get their start-up off the ground. If you want to build a solid business, cutting corners in certain areas is really not an option. Modern business owners utilise every avenue they can to make their business a success, and the businesses that realise this are those that are the most successful.
We are spending more time sitting down than at any other time in history. Most people have a sedentary job that involves sitting at a desk for more than eight hours a day. On the face of it, this may seem like a good thing but if we adopt a poor posture at work we could be storing up a lot of problems for the future.
Employers are increasingly recognizing that they need to protect their employee’s posture as well as looking after them in other ways. They are also finding out that good posture is good for increasing productivity!
Today is June 30th World Social Media Day coined by Mashable eight years ago.

When you own a business, there are certain aspects of it you need to protect at all costs. Some of these aspects are obvious, such as your business premises itself, and any sensitive company data you may have stored on hardware or via Cloud computing. Even if you don’t know the ins and outs of business protection when you first start out with your company, you will be able to pick most of it up along the way. However, there is also one other important area of your business that requires protection, and that is your staff. Businesses simply don’t work without a dedicated team of employees working there, helping everyday matters to tick over and being the catalysts for action. Failing to take care of these people can, therefore, end up potentially putting your business into great jeopardy. With all the financial figures flashing before your eyes, employee health and wellbeing maybe isn’t constantly at the front of your thoughts, but it can still be an area worth investing in. Here are some ways in which you can do so.
The cost of tech these days such as computers, security, and the latest gizmos and gadgets can seem extortionate. Leading some companies to shy away from keeping it as up to date as possible. OK, yes, some tech items are updated to sell more products, but it could be argued that using out of date tech is a false economy that is actually hurting your profits and success. Read on to find out more.
From MySpace to Snapchat social media has slowly infiltrated (do I dare say dominated) our lives for two decades.

For those who aren't involved in gaming in any real way, it can be hard to understand why there seems to be so much animosity between those who game on their TVs using consoles like the Playstation 4 or Xbox One and those who do it on their PCs. There seems to be an attitude from a lot of PC gamers that PC gaming is simply superior to console gaming in every way. But is that true? Well, yeah, pretty much. PCs have more power behind them as well as a whole host of extra features that consoles can't match up to. The main reason that consoles have always been more popular is that they are generally a little cheaper than a high-end gaming PC and that they have always been quicker to boot up and start playing right away. However, over the last few years, things have shifted a little bit. Thanks to the way that console gaming has shifted over time, you now have to deal with things like constant updates and install periods that make it just as, if not more, time-consuming than using a PC. So what are the benefits to PC gaming and why should you bother giving it a try?
Kick off your 4th of July under the sun with a refreshing cocktail, your favorite technologists, and Virtual Reality games!
It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s a problem. It’s the thing we all fear the most; the worst that our employers can throw at us.
Just a few small words, but they conjure up such complete horror…
The world is going virtual, and there’s absolutely nothing you can do. But what does this mean? Well, virtual has two meanings. On one level it could mean something that is either almost what it should be not quite. On another, it’s something that doesn’t exist in the physical world but appears to based on computer software. We’re going to look at both of these meanings and how they are playing more of a part in society and the world in general.
It should hardly come as much of a shock, but a lot of people have a great deal of personal stake in their businesses. Not only are the vast majority of business owners financially invested in their business, but many have a huge amount of emotional investment placed in it as well.
This isn't exactly surprising when you think about how personal many businesses are to people. Even the largest business in the world started out as the culmination of someone's personal dreams, or their desire to provide the world with something that it was missing. Now, this is undeniably a good thing. A serious personal investment in your business means that you're always going to want the very best for it and that you're going to always be pushing it in the best possible direction. However, it's not always an exclusively positive thing.
We know startups are looking for a few main resources to help propel their growth, and that’s exactly who we invite to join us at the 2017 TechDay Los Angeles at The Reef Los Angeles September 14th from 10 am to 5pm.

Though we’re clearly a tech-loving culture, there’s no denying that a lot of people tend to talk about technology in quite negative ways.
There are complaints about the fact that we’re focussing less on nature and what makes us human and more on the latest gadgets and technology advances. People say that we don’t go outside enough because technology makes it more fun to stay indoors. Some say that we don’t pay enough attention to each other or our studies, and that our attention spans in general are being negatively affected. There are also concerns that people are losing their jobs because of the increasing role of automation.
A pretty bleak picture is being painted here, right? Are we becoming so obsessed both with entertainment and how far we can push technology that we’re putting humanity second and technology first. But is this really the case? The fact is that the vast majority of technology we produce is being used to help humanity in various ways. Perhaps it’s worth taking a minute or two (or five or ten; it depends on how fast you can read) to remind ourselves of the areas in which tech advances are helping us!
