Internet Marketing Merges with TV

YouTube on Direct TV?
Youtube on TV

I just stumbled on this today. I found my Youtube marketing videos on TV via my Direct TV box. I’m probably the last one to know about this, but just in case someone ells out there didn’t know, I thought I would share.

Why is this worth mentioning here? I had to search on Direct TV to find our videos. Mine came right up. Will yours? Yet another reason to pay attention to your SEO on social websitesSee our Web Design and SEO Channel.

Here are the instruction on how to check your videos on TV search.

Tech Talk: Make a GREEN CD-DVD case

Save on plastic and reuse a tree!

Free Green CD sleeveSomeone e-mailed me this, this week, so I don’t claim to be the inventor nor know who to give the credit too, but I thought this was very useful. Many times, I’ve been handed a CD or DVD from a client, with no case, cover or sleeve and found myself looking around for a blank one. Once retrieving the data from the CD/DVD, it sits in a pile I call the ‘send back to client file’ or it gets thrown in their file folder, only to later fall out onto the floor.

What if there was a simple “green” way to save on the plastic used and a better way to store them in a folder? Well here it is. Take some scrap printer paper and make one of these. You can even write on it, which I really like.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview Review

 

So the days of Windows 7 appear to be coming to an end as Microsoft is beginning to release consumer previews of Windows 8. I have downloaded build 8250 and been using it for about 2 weeks now. So far I like it for the most part as it is still Windows 7 at the heart but there are a few items that I’d like to see changed. There is no longer a Start Menu button on the task bar; instead you get to it by bumping your mouse along the right side of the screen in either the top or bottom corners. When doing this it gives you the option of selecting: Search, Share, Start, Devices, and Settings. Of course you can still get to the Start Menu by using the Windows key on the keyboard or ctrl+esc keyboard shortcut but the quick click of the icon is gone. Continue reading
