Tighten Up Your Digital Life

Tighten Up Your Digital Life image by Think Big OnlineWe are now living on a Cloud era -- where most of our files like photos, important documents, contact numbers of our friends and family are all stored on a remote server or as we call it the "Cloud".

But how secured are these remote servers? How can these companies can protect our digital life?

Matt Honan, a technology writer, is one epic victim of cyber criminals. Hackers had the chance to get Matt's digital identity and wiped out his whole digital life. They deleted all the information from his iPhone, iPad and MacBook.

Pandora. The Internets Answer To Radio.

Pandora image by Think Big OnlinePandora is the latest online music platform to land on Australian shores. Similar to Spotify it gives listeners the chance to listen to the music they want for free, Pandora however takes on more of a radio feel.

One of Pandora’s exclusive features is its Music Genome Project. The MGP is considered the most sophisticated taxonomy of musical information ever collected. But what does that mean for you?

Pandora boasts that it will deliver a “great radio experience to each and every listener”. Pandora achieves this by having each and every song categorised by not only genre but also the beats, instruments, melody rhythm and vocals so when you type the name of a song into their search engine Pandora will also show you other music similar to that song.

Pretty unbelievable right?

Well I’ve taken one for the team and given it a go. Let me tell you this program is amazing. I typed in ‘Beyonce’ a very popular R n B artist and Pandora not only began playing ‘Beyonce’ radio (a series of tracks that have a resemblance to Beyonce’s sound) it also provided me with other artists I may be interested in.

Now this sounds all good and well for someone looking to listen to music, but how is this going to help your business?

Pandora is now not only online, but in peoples homes and cars who tune in through digital radio.

Pandora offers businesses the chance to advertise with them, using a system that targets your audience through age, location and gender.

 

You can use traditional radio advertising or you can use ‘prompt’ advertising (as Pandora calls it) to get users to go straight to a webpage. It all sounds quick, easy and simple.

Being such a new platform in Australia there’s no current statistics available, but watch this space because I’ll be keeping you updated.

Now tell me, are you going to give it a go?


[Weird News] Google Deploys Fleet Of Aircraft To Map Cities

Google deploys fleet of aircraft to map cities  image by Think Big OnlineGoogle is always looking for ways to exist on the “cutting edge” and with the maps split from Apple expected to happen shortly, there spending a small fortune on Public Relations to push the new “updated features” of Google Maps.

If you haven’t seen the news yet, the latest iPhone is predicted to be using Apples own Mapping service rather than Googles Mapping service.  This has created an issue for Google with a large user base predicted to stop using Google Maps.  To counter this move Google has in the last few days released a large number of Press Releases and insights into the future of Maps.

Probably the weirdest feature and press release they’ve released to date is their new 3D mapping service.  Google is currently deploying a fleet of small, camera-equipped airplanes above several cities.  The idea of this plan is to create a 3D map of the city where a user can navigate an “aerial view” of the city.

Now it’s important to note that Google has used airplanes previously to map cities, for example in the 2010 San Bruno Calif explosion Google sent in private planes to collect aerial photos of the explosion.  But this is the first time that Google has purposely sent out a fleet of planes with the purpose of creating a 3D cityscape.

According to the company spokesman they plan to have the first 3D cityscape accessible on Google Maps within the next few weeks.  This radical plan was actioned in response to Apples plan to discontinue the Google Maps service on iPhone devices.

It will be interesting to see how this new media campaign and feature release will help Google to retain Maps users.  Ultimately we believe that users will opt for convenience and use the new Apple Maps service because it comes pre-installed on the device.

Let us know in the comments below whether you plan to use the new Apple Maps service or continue using Google Maps.

20 Must Have Play List For Spotify

At Think Big Online, we’ve been having a lot of fun with Jess our Social Media guru who suggests to our clients that Spotify playlists may be the next big thing for social media marketing. Her blog post about Spotify has been popular and the idea seems to be catching on.

 

Take a chance on this:

  1. Go to Spotify and create a playlist that represents some entertaining tunes for your company.
  2. When creating your playlist, have some good-natured fun (see more below).
  3. Include your employees in the playlist creation by asking for suggestions (accept that sometimes your employees know more about what’s cool than you do).
  4. Post the playlist on your Facebook account so that your customers can see what you’re playing at the office or what tunes your employees love.
  5. Encourage your customers to let you know what they think and what they would add.
