Search engine optimization (SEO) isn’t for you if your business is niche, hyper local or business is already booming, right? Wrong. There’s no such thing as too much business, and if there is then maybe an expansion is in order. Whether your business specializes in a very niche demographic or you’re a serious brick and mortar establishment with no desire to go digital, you can still improve your SEO game. Unfortunately, many industries aren’t recognizing this truth.
The vast majority of small businesses don’t have a web presence at all, let alone an SEO strategy. While there are some elements of SEO you can learn and manage yourself, it’s best to have an SEO agency as your wingman. If you’re in one of these industries, the competition is getting fiercer and you need to secure your place at a decent ranking in search engine results. Otherwise, you’re missing out on business and your reputation is getting marred. [Read more →]

Kickstarter has jump-started some of the more interesting innovations introduced to humankind. Some have generated more interest than others prompting a number of people to buy kickstarter projects by virtue of curiosity. What could be more attention-grabbing than the 3 top geekiest kickstarter projects ever.
Imagine exploring the possibilities of science and robotics only to produce a useless can. The interesting part here is that several people are already backing up this project to produce a can that can only turn itself off and nothing else. What is even more interesting here is the amount of work that needs to go into producing this can which does absolutely nothing. You would need to assemble 45 pieces of parts to form one useless can. So if you want to indulge into sheer uselessness, this can is one perfect prop to have.
What could be more wonderfully geeky than a papercraft animated robot with a LED-lit barrier grid animation called BarriBot? It is actually the beginning of a continuous development of a papercraft programmable and swarm capable robot. Socket Circuits provide learning and inventing, in that particular order. Simply put, its electronics and toys on paper.
Know Your Numbers
A game to help you memorize your most important contact numbers, one cannot help but think how gaming can be allowed to be as geeky as needing to memorize numbers. Know Your Numbers is an app for use in smartphones. Hopefully this does the trick when it does leave the drawing board.
Funding Chances for Geeky Projects
So how do geeky projects like the three mentioned above actually fare when it comes to attracting funding support? They actually fare a lot better than most . Either people are just so tired of old products just getting modified over and over that they would actually rather see innovative albeit geeky products have their chance or they want to see something new, period.
Product creators will never really know if their idea could reach out the public unless they present them. Geeky or not, worthy products need to get the attention and patronage of buyers. Putting them in Kickstarter just gives an incredible head-start.

If you’re a hardcore iPhone lover or your adorkable and have a quirky affinity for BlackBerry, no amount of HTC boasting is going to get you to convert. Geeks form strong opinions that are nearly impossible to shift, but the HTC One M8 has certainly won its fair share of admirers in the geek community.
If you’re on the hunt for your next smartphone, or waiting on the sidelines for great deals in the wake of the new releases in autumn 2014, this HTC model should be on your radar.
In the world of smartphones (always excepting the $10,000+ jobs in the Middle East, of course), style is pretty safe. Sure, there are plenty of phones with sleek lines, but in the real world they don’t look like anything special.
You can always opt for a case of your choosing, but that can be like putting lipstick on a pig. The HTC One M8 gives geeks the best of both worlds: style and functionality in spades. [Read more →]
