Voycee: Your History Free Social Network – Disrupt 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSThe easiest way to say it – it’s Snapchat for social networking. Voycee is an incognito social network. You create your post and send it. People read the post then it disappears into the night. I talked with Ilfan Radoncic of Voycee – suited up like the Men in Black – who showed me the network. He states there are certain celebrities and sports stars that want to post something and not have it blow up on social networks. With Voycee, there is no timeline, no archived posts. Nothing to say that post existed. You can say something that people can read in the moment and then let it go in the wind. Voycee is available now for iOS with an Android app coming soon. Sign up, post away. Or DID you? For more information, head to Voycee.me or you can Download Voycee on iOS by...

Red-EHS Dispenses Medication Through Vending Machines: TCDisrupt 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSWe all want a vending machine in our house. One that is functional and helps with day to day operation. RedEHS vending machine is different because not only will it dispense medication it can dispense remotely via app. Red-EHS is a tablet based system that manages the inventory of medical supplies. A nurse will open the app and check out medications for patients. A code is generated and sent to the machine either through Internet or Intranet. The code will in-turn be used to get the right medication to the patient. The app tracks the staff member and the patient who needs the medication for inventory and accountability. Because RedEHS works with Verizon, the nurse does not even need to be in the building to give a patient their meds. Currently Red-EHS are in living care facilities, correctional facilities, home health agencies, and secondary care...

Apple Beats: What is Tim Cook-ing up at Apple?

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS Last week I was in New York for TechCrunch Disrupt. I got some great videos and tons of awesome footage of Times Square. However, when I returned my back decided to rebel from carrying 40 lbs throughout the city. Its been a tough weekend of recouping. Before the back siezed up I was able to hit some Friday garage sales with my brother. We hit an ultimate score – 2 totes full of in-box Spawn and Star Wars figures. We got it for a deal and are figuring out the next steps. If anyone wants to buy some, let me know. Last night’s TWIGG had a lot of great news. The Glass teardown found the device cost $150 to make – $200-250 with software and R&D. We had to ask why Glass was still $1,500. HP sent me 2 new devices which I have...

I Went to New York with Google Glass. No One Hates Them Here…

You might have heard the hate issues associated with Google Glass. Well I would like to tell you my story of how someone either put me down or caused physical violence – but I can’t. And I went to one of the most populated areas in the world. I thought for sure with my recent trip to New York I would get a hater, an accausting of, or at least a “can you please take those off?” Yet all I got was the same questions people in my city would ask. When I arrived in NYC (and after attending part of a conference I was there for) I stopped into 5 Napkins restaurant. Located at 690 9th street in Hell’s Kitchen, this is one place I highly recommend you have a burger at. I arrived at the restaurant and the first person to notice Glass was the host...
