“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Have Smartphones and Social Media Made Your Website Irrelevant?

14 Sep

Buchanan, MI (PRWEB) September 14, 2012

The rapid rise of social media and smartphone adoption has sparked lively debate among executives questioning the relevancy of a company’s website and the importance of its web presence.

Against this backdrop, the Internet consultants at Precept Partners have answered the challenge with the complete redesign and re-launch of its own company website at http://www.PreceptPartners.com. The award winning, Michigan based Internet design and development firm serves clients in multiple industries throughout the Midwest.

“We see the rapid rise in mobile devices as an important long-term trend; companies that ignore smartphones and tablets may be doing so at their peril. With the re-launch our own website, we paid particular attention to a design that would be easy to use on Android tablets and phones, as well as Apple’s popular iPad and iPhone products,” said Stephen Antisdel, manager of Precept Partners.

Commenting on the growth of social media Antisdel added, “Our new site includes links to our blog, LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook and Twitter. Obviously, we use social media; it’s become a vital part of the larger “Internet ecosystem”. But, we don’t see it replacing our website or other online marketing initiatives. Social media certainly has a role in building relationships, but it doesn’t replace the functionality or expanded “story telling” ability of a well-designed and executed website.”

The new Precept Partners website explains the firm’s project development process, its six core service offerings, and highlights websites designed and developed for clients in a various sectors including manufacturing, services, e-commerce, and member supported.

Mobile Wine Searching Gets Easy!

6 Sep

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/

WineMatch, the leading wine matching web site with integrated social media, has optimized its search tools for use with Apple’s iPad and Android tablets. WheelPlay has been enhanced with sliders and helpful tips in making it even easier for consumers to find the right wine easily and quickly. “WineMatch works on the iPad and Android tablets so folks can take advantage of our website while dining or shopping,” says Ed Leard, WineMatch CEO.

By using the sliders, consumers can quickly and easily adjust things like Fruit, Finish, Aroma, Oak, Tannins and others characteristics. For example, if you like a Sterling Vineyards 2006 Merlot, simply click on the center of the wheel. WheelPlay™ then allows you to specify more Fruit and Complexity and easily refresh your results to better tailor wines results to your specific tastes. Also unique to WineMatch, this functionality allows you to find wines that have similar qualities regardless of grape varietal.

WineMatch is the only website that allows consumers to drill down to this level of detail and specify exactly what they like. “It is incredible,” says Jon, owner of Inspiration Vineyards in Santa Rosa. “In a few years every winery will have their wines on WineMatch. It will become the new standard for wine, dramatically decreasing the relevance and dependence of a 100-point system controlled by a handful of wine critics.”

WineMatch launched the new innovative mobile search tools this week to celebrate the Family Winemakers Event in San Francisco at historic Fort Mason on September 9th and 10th. Ed also added “This is the premier California event where family-owned wineries in California debut their new vintages to restaurants, hotel, wine bars and consumers.

Google fined $22.5M over Safari cookie privacy

10 Aug

SAN FRANCISCO – Google is paying a record $22.5 million fine to settle allegations that it broke a privacy promise by secretly tracking millions of Web surfers who use Apple’s Safari browser.  Google has agreed to pay up to 22.5 million to the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to dispose of charges that it “misrepresented privacy assurances to users of Apple’s Safari browser.” What this means is that they encrypted code onto their web pages.

The fine is for misrepresenting what it was doing and not for the methods it used to bypass Safari’s tracker cookie settings. Cookies are small text files that are installed onto a computer to allow it to be identified so that a user’s web activity can be monitored. This is the largest fine that the FTC has imposed against a company for violating a previous agreement with the agency.

“No matter how big or small, all companies must abide by FTC orders against them and keep their privacy promises to consumers, or they will end up paying many times what it would have cost to comply in the first place,” FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz said in a statement.

The BBC quotes a Google spokesman saying: “The FTC is focused on a 2009 help centre page published more than two years before our consent decree, and a year before Apple changed its cookie-handling policy.”
