The Internet Is a Double Edged Sword for Dating

One thing that has happened is that people have gotten angry. One of the things that they are angry about is the dating world. One thing that is missing is the culture in which people have talked to one another. One activity that is becoming less frequent is men approaching women to flirt. There are a lot of reasons behind this. One reason is that both men and women are glued to their cellphones. While in some ways it increases their options, it does leave them ignorant of their chances that are right in front of them.

 

The interesting thing about the internet and social media is that a lot of people are connected in some ways and in other ways they are even more disconnected. This is one thing that is causing a lot of frustration in dating. The internet has become the matchmaker. Another phenomenon that has occurred is that people are now looking each other up on Google so that they would see the kind of person they are. However, Google is not always going to be the best source of information. There are people who are very hard to find online.

 

The internet has definitely changed how people socialize. However, there are signs of the dynamic changing back to how they used to be. For one thing, people are missing the personal interaction aspect of communicating. As a result, they seem to rushing back to the older way of communicating with one another. Online dating was never meant to replace the old way of dating. It was more meant for to be something to use in addition to the usual way of doing things.

 

Men Despair Over Online Dating

A lot of men are very frustrated when it comes to dating. For one thing, people have become sensitive. One thing that men are very scared of is rejection. This is one of the reasons they go to online dating. However, a lot of men are finding that their luck is not getting any better with online dating. They send out messages to many different people. However, they don’t get much of a response. As a result, they find themselves in forums complaining about online dating. The truth is that there is no guarantees when it comes to dating and relationships.

 

One thing that men can do in order to improve their chances of getting the date is take their best picture. Another thing they can do is make sure that they are filling out their profile accurately so that they can increase their chances of having someone they are greatly matched to. One of the worst things anyone could do is resort to dishonesty so that they can get the woman they want. It is better for them to find someone who wants them for who they are.

 

With online dating, it is important for people to treat it more like they would offline dating. This means actually talking to people when one gets the chance. If there is a community, it is important for them to connect in the community so that they will be able to attract some people that they would love to meet.

 

Online dating can be a very effective way to meet people if one knows how to use it. The best way to go about dating is to meet people and talk to them.

 

The Frustrations of Internet Dating

One of the things that the internet has brought to people is internet dating. This type of activity makes it easier for people to find someone to date because they are supposed to have access to people that are single. Therefore, people would have an easier time finding a date. However, online dating has eventually developed its own frustrations. For one thing, it is important for people to remember that people are roughly the same online and offline. In order for people to get an idea of the frustrations of online dating, all they have to do is visit the forums that are made for dating and relationships.

 

One thing that is emerging is a angry dating culture filled with people that are frustrated with their dating lives. These promises and testimonials that people have heard on ads for dating sites such as eHarmony where couples have met online and have been happy are turning out to be rare. Many people are learning that online dating is not all that different from dating in the outside world.

 

Among the people that are complaining about online dating are the men. Among the common complaints is that women will not talk to them. The only thing they can put it on is their looks. There are efforts to make it so that women are more able to initiate. Dating apps like Bumble are very empowering for women.

 

One thing about online dating is that it is not for everyone. Therefore, people should not put all of their eggs in that basket. Online dating can be used along with other methods of finding someone to be in a relationship with.

 

Twitter Refuses to Ban Donald Trump

People who follow Donald Trump on Twitter are aware of his way of using Twitter. Among his uses for Twitter include throwing insults and accusations at many different people. When looking at his Twitter account and messages, they may seem like the ramblings of a paranoid person. There have been calls to ban Donald Trump from Twitter. However, the CEO of Twitter refuses to ban Donald Trump for many reasons. Among the reasons that they don’t want to ban Trump is because they want to keep everything out in the open. At least with Trump’s approach, people will know what he thinks and how he feels.

 

For one thing, he does understand the importance of hearing from leadership on many different issues. There are certain things that can be done by allowing Trump to have his Twitter account. Another issue with banning Trump is that it could be a violation of free speech. One thing about social media is that it is a place for free speech. However, there is an issue with cyber bullying. After all, social media is meant to be a safe place to go when it comes to connecting and networking with others.

 

Twitter is one of the increasingly popular social media platforms. As a matter of fact, some people say that it is better than Facebook because of how straight forward it is when it comes to communicating with others. Twitter is especially easy to use for marketing. All one has to do is reach out to other so that they will gain followers that they can market to. Also, as they participate in communities, they may gain more clout which means that their posts will be seen on the searched keywords.

 

Headphones for Enjoying Online Devices

One of the features that people love to enjoy with their entertainment is the sound. However, in many cases, they are not going to be able to crank the sound as loud as they want without disturbing others. Fortunately, there is an alternative. These alternatives are headphones. While they are some of the most widely used, these devices seem to be rather underrated. Also, many people who use headphones tend to go for the ear buds that stick into the ear. While these items typically do their job in providing music, they are obviously weaker than headphones and can be quite tough to keep in place. Another drawback is that they tend to offer rather tinny sound unless you pay for some high end buds.

 

Audiophiles prefer the more full sized headphones. These phones will give people the full sound experience. When looking for good headphones, they can’t go wrong with the Sony 1000X. They offer some really good sound for the price that they are selling for. Stores sell them for $400. They are also wireless.

 

While these headphones are good, one would probably prefer products that are a little more affordable. The good news is that there are tons of headphones that are priced lower than $50 that will offer people impressive high quality sound with very little distortion. These headphones also are long lasting. This is one issue with many headphones is that they tend to not last long. However, some low priced headphones will give people a lifetime of high quality sound that they can take advantage of as they play their games or watch their movies or even listen to music.

 

How Monitors Are Improving Entertainment and Technology

There have been a lot of changes to the entertainment industry. For one thing, the technology for watching movies and playing games always involved one aspect ratio. As a result, if there is anything that has been produced for a different ratio, then it has to either be cropped or letterboxed. As a result, there has been some confusion and disappointment in the results. Now, Samsung has been at work in bringing tons of innovation to people. For one thing, they have come up with different shapes of monitors beyond the 16:9 aspect ratio. They have brought forth 21:9, 2.4:1, and now 32:9.

 

These monitors come with a lot of good potential for entertainment. For one thing, it is no longer necessary to put up with those annoying black bars. This also encourages producers of games and movies to experiment with alternate aspect ratios. They no longer have to deal with the complaints of black bars from customers that just want to have their screens filled. Customers are also going to be made aware of different options for aspect ratios. This makes it really fun for people who may want to have different options for entertainment.

 

While these monitors are amazing to look at, it is highly unlikely that these monitors are going to be translated to televisions. HDTVs are going to maintain their 16:9 ratio for a long time to come. Another thing that is makes these monitors unique is that they have a slightly higher resolutions than UHD televisions. They are a bit closer to theatrical 4K as opposed to the home version of 4K. Therefore, as technology develops, people will eventually get to see how powerful these items can be.

6-25-2017 Update: David Giertz is passionate about helping people save for retirement, because it’s a really serious issue that most Americans don’t take that seriously.  That’s why he took some time out to talk to an audience that isn’t normally his own.  Read that story on TheBroTalk, with some really good information on what you need to do, if you want to retire before you’re 70.

5-5-2017 Update: For a look into David Giertz the person, not just the business mind, Ideamensch.com had him sit down for an in depth interview recently.  Definitely revealing, and something worth reading for a different side to a major business leader, that we’re not often afforded.  Recommended reading for anybody interested in business or David Giertz’s background.

Interview on social security
A little while back, David Giertz spoke with Veronica Dagher about the issue of social security and retirement planning. David said that most financial advisers opt against speaking with clients about social security since it is a complex issue. This, according to Giertz at https://soundcloud.com/davidgiertz, is a tremendous mistake.

A survey conducted by Nationwide Financial showed that financial advisers do not speak to their clients about social security. The same study on Instagram indicated that about four-fifths of people would consider letting go of their advisers if they did not talk about social security.

A book that illustrates the complexity of the social security issue is the Social Security Handbook which has 2700 rules. From a retention perspective, financial advisers need to talk to their customers about social security.

Social security is a big issue in retirement planning since it could account for two-fifths of your income. Another crucial thing on the social security matter is timing. People who start too early risk losing many thousands of dollars over the course of their retirement period. For an optimal retirement plan, speaking to your adviser about your social security is paramount.

Samsung Brings Forth A New Aspect Ratio For Computer Monitors

While people are marveling at the change in aspect ratios for TVs, Samsung has been releasing a lot of new monitors of different aspect ratios for computers. The computer world already has TVs beat with the new 21:9 sets which are roughly the shape of CinemaScope theater screens. Now, Samsung has released two new aspect ratios. One is the 2.4:1 monitor and the staggering 32:9 monitor. The 32:9 monitor is the widest that one is going to get. To make things even better, the screens are curved for the monitors which give it a cinematic quality.

 

Customers are initially going to use it for gaming. However, there are other uses for it. For one thing, this gives people the chance to watch some of their favorite movies in their full aspect ratio without having to put up with black bars that come with letterboxing. However, as with the movie theaters, some movies are going to be in a smaller aspect ratio and will appear in the middle of the screen with black bars on the side of the image. For the 2.4:1 screen, some films will not have black bars. However, the 32:9 device is going to always have black bars on the side because there are no films that have been shot in that ratio. However, it is exciting to watch even ultra wide movies and experience the full effect of 70MM spectacles like How The West Was Won.

 

One of the best things about these different aspect ratios is that it is allowing more room for art. As one would know, many paintings are shown in a wide variety of aspect ratios. The attempts to make everything uniform is rather criminal.

 

Spotify is Making the Jump Into Video Offers

One of the biggest developments on internet is video streaming. It has become so big since YouTube that tons of popular websites are using it. Also, social media platforms are offering video for people to use. Even music streaming services are taking on the technology. One recent music streaming service known as Spotify has started to offer video streaming. This is one of the best features for people because it gives music streamers a chance to enjoy video content without having to go to a video site.

 

Spotify has initially launched original video services early last year. However, they have quieted down on the project. While there is still a lot of potential for the project, Spotify has slowed down on the use of this feature. Meanwhile, there have been other projects that have started and finished before Spotify. One thing that is worth considering is that the original video on the app is not prominently featured. This goes to show that even the most promising products need some kind of marketing in order for it to take off. If Spotify would’ve taken the time to make sure that people know about the video feature, then they would’ve been very successful in their attempts to bring it to their customers.

 

Video is quickly becoming the king of content. One of the reasons that video is so popular is that it allows people to not only watch video, but also produce their own video and release it online. Also, the technology released makes it easier for people to make and release videos so that they can gain a lot of success for their business. The different platforms offering video also allow people to watch their favorite shows.

 

 

Facebook Screwed Up By Algorithm After Removing The Human Editors

Days after Facebook removed the human editors who somehow controlled what appeared on the trending topics section. The company was caught unawares when it trended a fake news story about the Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. Facebook replaced the human editors with the new purely algorithm system to avoid the recent accusations of removing trending topics that are allied to conservatism views.

 

 

The recent mistake, however, was an avoidable one. The trending topic about Megyn Kelly claimed that she joined Fox News commonly known to be conservative-leaning, as a secret Hilary Clinton supporter. The story was not making sense at all. However, since there was no human to catch the mistake in the Algorithm, the story trended to the top of Facebook’s Trending list even beating popular trending topics like the Beyoncé’s VMA performance and a sexting scandal by Anthony Weiner. The trending story was later removed at around 9:30 ET the following morning.

 

 

The point is that Facebook’s strategy of trending the fake story was absurd in the first place and only served to give credibility to the hoax. According to sources familiar with the situation, Facebook’s trending topics algorithm relies on many articles, topics, and posts, which is the reason it was easy to come up with a viral headline. At the point when the story was promoted, it met the conditions for acceptance according to the Facebooks guidelines about trending topics. Facebook now claims that the story was later deemed inaccurate hence the reason it was removed from the trending list.

 

 

However, Facebook declined to comment on the matter amid outcry from the conservatives. Recently, Gizmodo reported that Facebook was purposely suppressing stories related to conservatism and allowing stories for the liberalism to trend. Although early conclusions may have been made about Facebook’s behavior, the company has refused to produce evidence to prove otherwise.

 

 

The recent incident involving the new algorithm system wasn’t the first incident. Over the weekend, other inappropriate headlines trended including a man masturbating with a McDonald’s sandwich. The recent decision to eliminate the human editors was according to Facebook meant to encourage broader audience.
