Instant Apps Are The Newest Kid On The Block Regarding App Profits

With the introduction of the iPhone, the way people use technology has changed significantly. With the iPhone, people are able to do a wide range of tasks with one technology device. This allows people to reduce the number of needed technology devices and simplifies the method used on a daily basis concerning technology.

 

As the iPhone has become one of the most popular technology innovations in recent memory, other companies have come to the market with similar devices to gather a share of the market profit. In competition with the iPhone, are several big name companies with phones they developed that fall under the market name Android. In addition, iPhones and Androids as a whole are recognized as smartphones.

 

With all the capabilities that the iPhone and the Android provides to technology users, many people have come to depend on the smartphone for a wide variety of daily uses. One of the most popular features of iPhone and Android phones are the apps that people can use to handle many different tasks.

 

The availability of the apps depends on the app developers. Some apps are free while other apps have some type of payment requirement. A significant part of the money that comes from smartphones is the money generated from the apps developed for smartphones.

 

Google has initiated a different approach to the development and marketing of the apps for iPhones and Androids. The new approach is instant apps. The theory behind instant apps is that users can utilize the apps without having to actually have the apps on their phones. Users can use the apps without having to download the apps.

 

 Google  with the development of instant apps is opening the door to a new approach to app usage. The speculation is wide open to how users will adapt to the availability of instant apps. However, the apps are a way for users to utilize the apps without the need for the apps to be on the users’ phone. This should encourage the use of the instant apps.

 

Many developers are looking at the possibilities concerning instant apps and how the new style apps will impact the app market for smartphones.

 

 

The Word Magnises Means Nothing But The Club Is On Fire In Big Cities According To Founder Billy McFarland

There are a more than 500 people on the waiting list to join a social club called Magnises. Magnises sounds very regal, but the word means absolutely nothing. The word and the club are the brainchildren of a 24-year-old entrepreneur, Billy McFarland. Bill McFarland is a Millennial that sees the big picture. He sees the opportunity to create something special for the generation that some people call strange.

Those people are right. The Millennial generation is strange. That generation is just as strange as the Gen-X and Baby Boomer generations were when they were young and filled with hopes and dreams. Billy McFarland is tapping into the hopes and dreams of Millennials, and he’s good at it.

According to IdeaMensch, Billy McFarland was born in New York City, but he grew up in Short Hills, New Jersey. His parents were successful real estate developers, so Billy got started in the business world when he was 13. By the time he was 20, he was running a successful online ad platform called Spling.

Spling is another one of those words that defy definition. But McFarland did add meaning to the word Spling when he used it to create his company. That’s the way Billy McFarland rolls. He is a full-blooded Millennial, and he creates concepts that other Millennials can enjoy. Magnises is one of those concepts.

Magnises is enriching the lives of Millennials living in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and San Francisco. More than 12,000 Millennials are card carrying members of the Magnises adventure.

Those members enjoy perks organized by McFarland’s staff. Corporations are lining up to partner with McFarland. Billy has a captive audience that appreciates the finer things in life, and McFarland makes sure he gives them what they want.

Hanging out at McFarland’s West Village townhouse is one of the treats that attracts some members. Sipping champagne and eating trendy finger foods while networking is a rush for New York City members and members that are visiting from other cities. But using the black metal membership card like a credit card is the bomb for other members. The black membership card can be linked to a personal credit or debit card, so it acts and looks like a black American Express card.

How Wen by Chaz Adds Fullness, Shine and Manageability to Hair

A young woman using Wen by Chaz for the first time decided to share the results she received by posting an article on Bustle. She was looking for a product that would help add body and manageability to her limp hair. In the article the young woman describes how her hair would often become greasy after spending a day traveling around in trains and buses. To help counter these issues she chose to try the fig version of the Wen cleansing conditioner.

Not only does the young woman’s article indicate how different her hair felt after the first use, but it also states how her hair looked full and shiny every time she used the product. On the days she was not able to wash her hair it did revert back to its greasy state, which was quickly remedied once she had the opportunity to wash it with Wen.

Something for Everyone

Wen by Chaz works at resolving the issues most people have with their hair, because it contains botanical extracts. Each variety contains its own unique blend of plant extracts to repair and restore damaged hair. In addition to getting rid of the greasy or oily look some people experience with their hair, the products in the Wen hair care product line can also add moisture to dry or over processed hair.

The variety of products available from Wen work equally well on both permed or color treated hair.

Edward Snowden Calling For Tech Companies To Ensure Privacy

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden had an interview with StartPage where he spoke about the outcome of the 2016 election and Donald Trump becoming president. He also addressed concerns with privacy in the new administration. Snowden said we should not put too much trust in elected officials.

 

“We’re never farther than an election away from a change in leader, from a change in policy, a change in the way the powers we have constructed into a system are used. So, what we need to think about now is not how do we defend against a president Donald Trump, but how do we protect the rights of everyone, everywhere, without regard to jurisdictions, without regard to borders?” Snowden said.

Snowden’s tone changed to concern when discussing technology companies like Google and Facebook, who record your data forever. “Everything you type into that Google prompt is being saved forever,” said Snowden.

 

Snowden called on the industry leaders to end data collecting prior to Donald Trump’s swearing in. Snowden and other anti-surveillance supporters believe Donald Trump will increase law enforcement and surveillance. Snowden also said he was not worried about Russian President Vladimir Putin turning him over to the United States as a political favor to Donald Trump. Putin has labeled Snowden as a human rights defender and Russia does not extradite human rights defenders.

 

During his talk, Snowden advocated for more encryption and other cybersecurity measures to become key as the internet continues to grow. He also called upon people to become more politically active when it comes to privacy issues. Snowden barely got into talking about the 2016 election results but did manage to attack Donald Trump.

During Snowden’s chat, he continued to deny working with any foreign government or intelligence agency. Snowden shared his concern about a Donald Trump presidency but said he was optimistic that the U.S. will survive, and that we only have to worry about today and not what happens tomorrow or the next day. Snowden’s conversation lasted almost an hour.

A Model of Tax Transparency

New Zealand has been widely publicized for its track record in tax transparency. While the first impression one gets of New Zealand makes it sound like a utopia, there is more to the matter than meets the eye.

 

The first thing worth noting is that OECD has not listed New Zealand as a tax haven. Furthermore, it is likely that it will ever feature on the list of tax havens. The striking feature of tax havens is that they either do not impose taxes or impose minimal taxes. The other features include the lack of tax transparency, and procedures or laws that prevent the exchange of data with foreign governments. New Zealand does not satisfy any of these grounds. Moreover, NZ does not have a secretive banking industry.

 

The 2002 OECD Model Agreement on Exchanging Information Regarding Tax Issues is the basic standard on tax transparency. The agreement calls for the global exchange of information to allow for the enforcement or administration of domestic taxation laws. One of the countries to be featured on OECD’s white list was none other than New Zealand. NZ gained a booking on this list for implementing the internationally approved tax standard.

One of the ways New Zealand has proven itself in tax transparency is in the way it handles the requirements of trustees and foreign trusts. Their mode of operation in this areas helps other governments that require tax information.

 

Michael Cullen implemented the new tax rules in New Zealand in 2006 after consulting widely with other stakeholders. According to Cullen’s system, a NZ resident trustee who has a foreign trust should submit a IR607 or Foreign Trust Disclosure form and other relevant information for New Zealand tax purposes. Some of the records required include information about the trust’s liabilities and assets, distributions and settlements, trust deed, and money received and spent by the trustee. If the trust involves a business, the trustee should maintain records on the codes of account, charts, and accounting system.

Crowdsourcing Could Help Businesses Develop New And Better Technology

Crowdsourcing could hold the key to better and faster technological developments all across the business world. Tech experts believe that the health, pharmacology, advertising, marketing, traffic, transit, agriculture and cyber security industries and fields could benefit from crowdsourced collaboration. Here is how it works and why it can be so beneficial.

 

Netflix, the movie streaming company, made waves when it announced it would give a prize to anybody or any group that could upgrade its Cinematch technology. This was the technology that recommended users new movies and films based on their previous views and browsing history. The Netflix prize turned out to be a success. The result was an improved algorithm for Cinematch. Netflix benefited and the consumer of Netflix also benefited from better and more personalized recommendations.

 

Other companies can also benefit from crowdsourcing on projects or on improvements. You can crowdsource on more than entertainment or marketing. A pharmaceutical company called Merck tried crowdsourcing to help improve its drug offerings and make existing ones better. It shared information on molecules and asked the public to identify substances that can make their drugs better and more effective. It proved fruitful and showed the collaboration through crowdsourcing can be used to obtain impressive results even in pharmacology and healthcare.

 

Cybersecurity is another sector that can see tremendous improvements if major crowdsourcing takes place. Think about it. New threats are constantly appearing. What better way to find out about new threats and how to deal with them then by collaborating with as many people as possible. Then, take the best or most effective solution and implement it. If you see new challenges or threats, then you find ways to deal with it.

 

Digital security can also see a boost by crowdsourced projects. It involves encryption for paying with credit cards and monitoring for fraudulent purchases made via credit or debit cards. If better programs can be made, then why not try it out? Crowdsourcing can potentially solve the problem of valid transactions being flagged as fraud and help companies better flag suspicious activity. Combine crowdsourced projects with machine learning and digital security can really improve.

 

Transportation applications can use crowdsourcing to get better input on how to improve or build upon existing applications such as Google maps and Waze. It can lead to more accurate forecasts in traffic and how to better avoid them. Even traffic engineers can use crowdsourcing to better manage traffic flow.
