If there s one tactic that s being hyped-up to oblivion right now, it s this: - Publish something cool.- Find influencers who ve tweeted/shared something similar.- Reach out and pester them to tweet/share your post too.I m sure you GH'ers have all been on the receiving end of this.Someone emails you out of the blue asking if you can tweet their article .It happens a lot, but we at Ahrefs struggle to believe it works.

Plus, apartments have different needs than single-family homes.I can t even count the number of LED and smart lightbulbs I have lying around, but when picking out smart lights for the DT smart apartment, I had a number of factors to consider.There are a number of ways to make your lights smart: There are smart bulbs, smart switches, and smart plugs.If your switch isn t permanently flipped up, the app can t illuminate the bulb for you.If you recently switched to non-connected, long-lasting LEDs, fear not.This is more work than swapping a bulb, but it has some advantages.

Docusign has hired Daniel Springer as its new CEO, putting an end to its strange, 18-month quest to find a replacement for current boss, Keith Krach.Springer has the right mix of experience to lead Docusign, an e-signature software maker last valued at $3 billion.He sold his previous company Responsys to Oracle for $1.6 billion in 2014, three years after taking it public.Before that, he spent time at the consulting firm McKinsey and a startup called Telleo."I'm thrilled to discover the opportunity at Docusign.It s a big scale company but also with hyper growth, and that s what gets me excited," Springer told Business Insider.Springer's real challenge will be in ensuring a smooth CEO transition for Docusign, who took an unusually long 18-month period to fill the position.After Krach expressed his desire to step down in 2015, the company was close to appointing Google executive Rick Osterloh as CEO last March — but he pulled out at the last minute, cancelling the press briefings that were already scheduled to announce his hiring.On top of that, Docusign saw four of its top executives suddenly leave last year, adding to speculation around the company, which was once seen as one of the leading candidates to go public soon.

Apple has confirmed to developers it is raising app store prices by up to a third, more than countering any downward currency swing in the British pound since the Brexit vote in June.The changes PDF will happen in seven days and will see the cheapest app go from 79 pence to £0.99 - in the US the entry level price is $0.99 - and from £1.49 to £1.99 in the next price band.When foreign exchange rates or taxation, we sometimes need to update prices on the App Store.Price for app and in-app purchases excluding subscriptions will increase in India, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, the letter to the devs - seen by us - stated.The rise in India and Turkey are related to a service tax rate change, said Apple, but in Blighty the reason is the drop in the local currency, which yesterday fell against the US dollar to a 31-year low of $1.20 to £1.Prior to the EU referendum, £1 would get you $1.42.

Marknaden för containrar – som används av utvecklare för att paketera applikationer – "exploderar" med en mängd startups som vill konkurrera med etablerade leverantörer, som i allt högre grad också prioriterar den här tekniken.Analysföretaget 451 Research har kommit ut med en av de första rapporterna som uppskattar hur den här marknaden växer.Just nu är omsättningen ganska liten: 2016 omsatte marknaden 762 miljoner dollar.Men det kommer att ändras.Den årliga tillväxttakten väntas bli 40 procent fram till 2020 – vilket innebär att den då skulle omsätta 2,6 miljarder dollar.I rapporten skriver 451 Research att den kommersiella marknaden för containrar bara är i sin linda.

Every once in a while when you re using your smartphone, there s that annoying moment when you need to tap through a recipe, flip the page of an eBook, or skip a video ad but don t have a finger to spare.Perhaps they re coated with flour dough — or barbecue sauce.Whatever the reason, the result s the same: You re stuck without a way to use your touchscreen — unless you have the gesture-sensing Bixi 2.0, that is.The original Bixi, the product of the French startup Bluemint Labs, looked a little like a miniature hexagonal hockey puck, and its successor is no different.The Gorilla Glass-shielded black surface, which houses optical sensors and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to a month, is supported by five stabilizing plastic feet.There s also a key chain ring.

Due to the GFW and the fact that most Chinese can t get access to mainstream foreign social networks, China s own social networks are booming.We can see a Chinese version of Google, Baidu; there is Sina Weibo, like Twitter in China; Renren or Xiaonei – which is not used anymore – could be considered as the Chinese Facebook.Zhihu, which means Do you know in Chinese, was launched in January 2011, just one year after Quora.At its early stages, the app was indeed a shadow of Quora.But now its functions and its impact on Chinese users extend far beyond those of Quora.To me, Quora is a platform where people raise and answer questions.I used to search Quora several years ago to find the answers that I want.But now Zhihu, just like WeChat, aka China s Whatsapp, is already part of my life.I search for information and browse Zhihu during my daily commute, and I ve found new friends via the app.

Joggers run along the Charles River past the Boston skyline on a sunny winter's day in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S. January 9, 2017.BOSTON – Lacking authority to change the laws of physics to allow more sunlight on the darkest days of winter, a special commission is instead considering whether Massachusetts should change the laws of man and observe daylight saving time year-round.If adopted, Massachusetts residents wouldn't have to set their clocks back in November and forward in March, as most of the U.S. does.Benefits of having daylight saving time throughout the year could include energy savings and less seasonal depression, proponents suggest.Skeptics argue it would be impractical for Massachusetts to make such a change on its own if the rest of New England does not.And if the sun sets later in the day it also would rise later in the morning, posing dangers for children walking to school in the dark.

If you're looking for a name brand but are willing to consider less than the latest and greatest, there are deals to be found.But if you're willing to consider a tablet that isn't from Apple, Samsung, or Sony, you can find prices that dip a lot lower.But you don't have to wait for a shopping holiday to get a deal like that; we've seen off-brand Android tablets with similar specs to the Fire go for around $30 in recent months.You can spend a lot on a high-tech alarm clock, but you'll never find a clock more customizable than a tablet.And if you'd rather see the latest weather or the top social network posts, you can do that, too.Do you still keep a notepad and pen on the kitchen counter, by the phone, or in some other central space to use as a place for the family to keep notes?

Attribution is important, no matter your industry or your buying cycle.As more attribution models are created, it becomes more difficult to understand which one is the right one, and it seems that conversations about attribution models tend to occur with the expectation that each person has chosen a camp and believes in one particular model.The reality, though, is that no single attribution model can be the standalone source of truth — because no single attribution model can paint the full picture.Each person, team or agency is likely to be partial to the attribution model that gives the most credit to their work.Obviously, if you bring your team — or your agencies — into one room to agree on an attribution model, you ll make them very uncomfortable.So how can you decide which model to use?

Screenshots that purportedly show an upcoming UI change as part of an update for Windows 10 codenamed 'NEON' suggest that a return of Aero Glass-like transparency and a new effect called "Acrylic" will form the basis of the visual tweaks.According to MSPowerUser, early builds of the UI changes put an emphasis on smooth animations when performing actions, the use of transparency and the new Acrylic element, which provides blurred elements around and within apps.The report suggests that these elements all adjust their appearance depending on what's open behind the current item, and form a part of what Microsoft is calling the "Conscious UI and Connected Animations."The NEON update is also expected to introduce UI elements designed specifically for Microsoft's HoloLens technology, like eye-tracking that's highlighted by on-screen UI changes.Non-HoloLens users will also reportedly get the new interaction animations, they'll just follow the mouse instead of your eyes.That most of the good news.
