Everyone is jumping on the cloud train these days. Apple has iCloud, Microsoft has their cloud services such as Office 365, Google has Google, lol. In additional to those, other companies are developing services that takes the space off your device and in the cloud. I am 50/50 on this idea, I feel some things can go cloud but other things need to stay private. It could just be my paranoia as a tech guy, but I digress. If you want that new hot sauce, it is not in the iCloud (sorry Apple), get up on Box.
I would like GoJu Nation to be as renaissance as possible. Now we’re based on delivering quality so I wanted you to be aware of some business realities with the jobless rate dropping in 37 states last month. That might be an indication of things to come (right…). Now I’m far from a stock guru and I’m just starting to get my legs underneath me when it comes to navigating the investment waters. But I do know that you can’t live check to check forever and there needs to be an investment of some sorts in your life. Especially if you intend on living comfortably. So I’m not presenting any stock tips here. But I think it’s important that GoJu Nation is aware of how some companies are performing in specific industries. So today (being that we’re an online entity) we’ll give you some popular tech companies and how they’re performing. It’s important to note that as much as these are household names, brand identification isn’t everything. I’ll let you guys come to your own conclusions.

The music industry is not known for welcoming innovation. In fact, it’s downright hostile. If you’re a talented programmer, there’s a good chance that you’d rather hang yourself with your laptop cord than join a music startup. And good luck getting investors.

Larry Page is the new CEO of Google and what does that mean exactly?? Pundits speculate that he can have a Bill Gates/Steve Jobs effect on Google moving forward. Lofty expectations. And at $580 a share they better be. Will they diversify? Or stay in the search engine game.. By creating Android have they plateaued or their mobile aspirations? Or will they keep chasing the Apple behemoth. He’s a co-founder and been on the ground floor since 1997. That does mean he’s built for the task. Lets listen in to our friends over at CNBC and get their analysis on this major move of 2011.
GoJu Nation Your Car Care REPs have arrived and ready to give you some smart talk. I like to keep things personal between readers and myself so people can see that I’m not just your average over achiever that has a passion for automobiles. While thinking of topics to write for this installment of Your Car Care REPs (around 11:45 PM) my doorbell rang and I wasn’t expecting anyone. When I opened the door I was surprised to see my neighbor who looked upset and frantic. She was asking if she could use my telephone because she had locked herself out of her house and wanted to call a locksmith to open it. I asked if she had left a window open because I had a tall ladder that I could use to climb in and avoid her having to pay a locksmith $200 for 2 minutes worth of work. She said, “Yeah the kitchen window is open”. Low and behold I was able to climb in through her kitchen window and open her front door. Avoiding her the headache and pain of having to wait for a locksmith, getting a new lock, changing her set of keys, etc. This success story also gave me the next topic for this article, which is about Smart-Phone Applications for your Car. In this article we’ll discuss the various types of applications that will allow your car to graduate from Simple Simon to Smart-Phone University.
It’s a lil late but the topics are relevant enough to post anyway. Don’t blame my heart, I’ve been busy… And after you watch, click the Amazon widget below and get you video game purchase on. But, for now Courtesy of G4 here is “The Feed.
As crappy as the iPhone actual phone service has been, customers are anxiously awaiting when Apple will allow other service providers to get in the game. It has been rumored for a year straight that Verizon is the leader in the clubhouse. We were bombarded earlier this year with Verizon commercials pounding AT&T stating they have a better 3G network (of which AT&T fired back with a slew of come back commercials feat Luke Wilson).
For a while now people had the perception that Apple ran the tech world. The have been p0rtrayed as the Executive Chef in the kitchen, but it is clear now that they are the sous chef and Google is the head chef in charge. Thanks Steve Jobs for keep the kitchen pumping out the apps but it is time for the main course. Google has finally start taking control and break the myth of control. Admob has been cleared for purchase by Google for 750 million. The FTC approved the buy and stated that Google has not violated any anti-trust laws. Susan Wojcicki, Google’s vice president of product development, wrote on a company blog post today.
“As mobile phone usage increases, growth in mobile advertising is only going to accelerate,” Wojcicki wrote. “This benefits mobile developers and publishers who will get better advertising solutions, marketers who will find new ways to reach consumers, and users who will get better ads and more free content.”
