Michael Weitz and Abigail Tenembaum, founders of Virtuozo, coach everyone from TED speakers to CEOs to express their message effectively."Even the same audience is different at 9am on a Monday than it is after a long day of presentations at 5pm."That might mean throwing aside the PowerPoint, or adding in a personal anecdote if your message can go off-script."If you ask attendees of TED talks what drives them crazy, it's when speakers talk like they're reciting a memorised text," says Weitz."If you speak fast in a low voice, your impact will not be what it could have been.""Most people will put their foot on the accelerator," says Weitz.

A new feature called Instant Android Apps will let users run applications immediately, without the need to first be installed locally. The idea is that developers will be able to reach out easier and quicker and get a bigger audience.

Business leaders who have opted to wait out a tech jobs hiring crunch to fill or add positions in their organization may want to consider getting off the sidelines.When a talent shortage article is published, it s likely that some people in the audience will roll their eyes and think that they each know a half-dozen talented IT professionals who are either under-employed or unemployed.Analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics by corporate advisory and strategy firm CEB shows that by 2020, the U.S. could have 1.4 million open computing jobs.Eóin O Toole, co-founder and managing partner of recruiter Arete Partners, notes that when employers turn up their noses at night school and online certificate programs, they exacerbate the problem.That may mean encouraging people with backgrounds not typical of those in science, technology, engineering and math.Programs aimed at adults are bringing people into STEM careers from seemingly unlikely backgrounds.
The next social app from Google is Allo, a chat app that focuses on Expression, The Google Assistant, and security.Allo is based on your phone number, and Google suggests that their three topics of focus "make Allo really special."This feature allows you to drag a bar up or down to resize the text you're sending.When this feature was introduced at Google I/O 2016, the audience basically flipped out for some reason we cannot yet figure out.You'll also be able to send photos you've taken with scribbles on top - notes or drawings, made on the fly.Allo works with Smart Replies.

There will also be a cheap alternative for small companies that do not have to invest in giant data centers and huge bandwidth to live to a large audience. Upon release there are 13 free channels that you probably never heard of the app, a range that waft technology demo rather than full-fledged streaming service. But Bittorrent saying that more channels are in the pipeline, both in pay television, advertising-financed free TV and pay-per-view.

Credit: Adam Patrick MurrayAt Google I/O 2016, the company revealed Daydream, an ambitious new virtual reality platform seemingly designed to rip the premium VR experience away from Samsung s clutches and back into the open Android community.Daydream will still rely on Android phones slotted into a viewer—like Google Cardboard—but the platform will be powered by Daydream-certified phones, running in GearVR-esque virtual reality headsets based on a Google reference design, with software hooks directly in Android N and apps delivered via the Play Store.The initial Daydream designs look suspiciously similar to what Oculus already has on the market, however.Finally, even the basic design of the Daydream reference headset bears a striking resemblance to the Oculus Rift.But that s one hell of a homage.If it ain t broke don t fix it, I guess.
Social channels are one of the most effective ways to drive app downloads, but they re often a missed opportunity.Much like how a friend would recommend a new eatery to you after devouring its amazing chef s tasting menu, social appetizing allows users to share their excitement over a new app, thereby enticing newcomers to download and spend.Yet many app publishers are ignoring this valuable channel.No question, acquiring high-quality users is becoming more challenging year after year, and social appetizing provides a better opportunity to attract the audience you want for your app.The line between mobile and desktop users continues to be blurred, as 67 percent of consumers begin their shopping experience on one device and move to another before purchasing.Focusing on social media — which is used by a majority of mobile users — allows your company to target the desired demographic in a more efficient way.However, more money doesn t guarantee solid results, unless you know exactly what you re doing.

Okio creates age-appropriate communication devices for parents to stay in touch with their children; it s a simple voice messaging tool utilizing a smartphone app and a discreet device kept by the child.Meet XOXO announced that Lady Gaga is joining the company as an advisorHiding behind the genuinely an un-googleable and therefore terrible name, XO has a fantastic idea with the execution skills to match.I think Blümio has positioned itself in a tremendously competitive market, but with a potentially huge pay-out at the end — heart health is a big topic, and while their technology still has a lot of challenges ahead of it before it s ready for prime-time use, it s definitely one to keep an eye on if you re a medtech investor or medical device manufacturer.The company is certainly facing an adoption challenge, but it does find itself in the enviable position of being both needed and in a space where acquisitions are many and frequent.The company is able to detect heart rate, respiration and skin temperature of a newborn, all without having to attach scary medical sensors to the child.More interestingly, the company is aiming at a much broader audience than just tennis.
