Rent this Dress Using Style Lend – Disrupt 2014

Women lend clothing all the time. Shirts, pants, and even dresses. Of course if a dress is around $1,000, they probably don’t want to part with it. That is where Style Lend comes in – Rent those expensive dresses for the gala event. Let’s say you want something from Parker, BCBG, Tadashi, Alexander Wang, Sans Souci, Lucca Couture, or anything with a larger price tag. Only thing is you want it for one night – Prom, awards ceremony, or special night on the town. If you can’t afford the high price, you can use StyleLend to rent it out for...

  Just earlier today, Epic Games (the makers of Infinity Blade, Unreal Tournament and other titles) have announced that they are going to be working on a brand new version of Unreal Tournament(UT).  However, the development process is going to be a lot different than many other games.

Zopaf Salary Negotiation Calculator App – Disrupt 2014

I remember the first job where I had to negotiate the salary. I was too green to understand how the product worked. If I would have had the Zopaf Salary Negotiation app, I could have gone into the negotiations and possibly have received more. Zopaf app is currently for iOS. The app uses multiple input options to create a graph of where you should be in your negotiations. For example: a Sales representative might have to consider vehicle costs  if no company car is provided. This app also takes out any emotion. If you calculate your costs and they are more...

TravAlarm Alerts if Problems Arise – Disrupt NY 2014

I have officially switched to my phone as an alarm clock (when I need it). Its easy to set and the alarm wakes me up. TravAlarm said that was not enough, so they made a smart alarm system. Imagine your alarm clock goes off a half hour earlier. You look at your phone and read there is a problem on the 101 or your city got 5-6 inches of snow. Now you can make better choices to start your day or just call in and not go to work. TravAlarm also will set alarms for you bus and train riders....

TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon Recap

I got into New York at about 10 AM and headed right to the event. Hackers have been working over the last 24 hours. I am sad I couldn’t get to watch them in action but happy I got to see the end results during the hackathon. The presentation itself was well done. They only had 60 seconds to present and the MCs kept them to that – only giving extra time to technical issues. Some presenters were well oiled machines while others didn’t do that well. A couple presented a pitch but didn’t show a product. In a Hackathon...

Motorola Droid Maxx vs. Motorola Moto-X – Android Throwdown

There are a lot of Android, Windows and iOS phones out on the market. Old and new, it gets really confusing to try and find a phone that will work for you. I talked with the folks at Verizon and they agree – they want to get you a phone that works for your needs. That is why we are running a series of videos putting different phones together. I will be talking their good points and bad. In this video, I take the larger Motorola Droid Maxx and pit it with the Motorola Moto X. Both phones will go...

A More In-Depth Look at Amazon FireTV

Lots of great stuff this week as I prepare for NYC and TechCrunch Disrupt. Finishing up the NAB videos this week. Also catching up on some products I had in the wings for a couple months. The studio is getting a spring cleaning so it may look a little different. My office is a mess with boxes and gear I set to the side. I can barely walk through the room anymore! Still waiting on the Aereo vs ABC supreme court ruling. I’ll keep you updated if anything changes. TWIGG was awesome last night but I am having a hard...
