Thanks to November

Hey, Everyone!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving Holiday with your close friends and family. This will be my final FiOS campaign post. With that being said I had an amazing opportunity to learn about Fiber optics and the advantages.

What I’ve learned from FiOS is that it’s a completely different connection from Satellites or cable. Sometimes we fear the change of trying something new. When it comes to FiOS service think of it as an upgrade for yourself and your families lifestyle. One feature I love is Mobile TV. it’s available for all your Mobile devices. Sometimes kids and adults need some TV time, whether that’s with the family or alone you can get a really great service with our strong 100/100 Mbps. When you’re “Home” using the FiOS Mobile app you’ll have access to all your channels just like on your TV set.

My Recent Experience 

Hey All!

I wanted to tell everyone about a recent experience with a new client and how Verizon’s service played a huge role. Since I’m considered a creative in the business world, for my creative juices to start flowing I needed to be actively outside to find inspiration.

20161016_141246.jpg

Let’s face it, when we usually pitch for a client or to investors it’s usually behind closed doors. With America’s Best Network, I’m confident enough to take my business outdoors. We streamed a few videos and downloaded content using my Edge 7 Hotspot to my iPad. The average speeds of DL were 48 Mbps and UL of 22mbps.

Before having our meeting, we had a quick picnic in Central Park. Witnessing Foliage is something that words can’t explain. My Edge 7 made sure to capture the moment, even with low lighting the phone knew exactly how to adapt accordingly.

My meeting lasted a good hour and a half because of the beautiful views, and the great knowledge we were sharing with one another. I explained to her the benefits of NFC. Something many people don’t take advantage of yet.

The Edge 7’s NFC ( Near Field Communication) chip came in handy when I left my credit card at home. All I had to do was press a button and bam! My account got charged like any other transaction. This may sound dangerous to some but it provides a safer environment than your physical wallet. Customers can check out at a store, purchase and load concert tickets to their smartphones, board the subway, read information from a smart poster, and many other tasks all from a single device.

Wishing everyone a great and safe Halloween!!

I have to say the selections of shows this season is phenomenal! We have so many options to choose from. Family, Drama to Comedy are among of the few genres of T.V. series this season. Those who personally know me, know that I’m a huge fan of Shark Tank, it’s super addicting if you’re into business or marketing. What’s your favorite T.V. series you are currently watching?

Fast Growing NYC

Fast Growing Companies Based in NYC

New York is the largest city in the United States and it’s the center of the North American business world. Therefore, it should not be surprising that New York is also the base of operations for many of the fastest-growing companies on the planet. Many of these companies are in the tech industry. There seems to be new and exciting startups that are being launched every day. Here are a few of the companies based in New York City that are growing substantially.

 

 

  1. StartApp   screenshot-2016-09-27-14-54-54  

This is a company that specializes in creating advertisements that can be found in various tablet and smartphone mobile apps. There are many other competing companies in this particular industry. Facebook and Google are both heavily involved in it. However, that has not stopped StartApp’s overall revenue from increasing by almost 22,000 percent during the previous three years. One of the reasons this company has been able to grow at such a rapid rate is the fact that it was the first company that focused on creating advertisements that were made only for a mobile device. Ad companies had previously just made desktop banner ads smaller.

 

  1. Handy newhandy

Handy is a company that has revolutionized the cleaning industry. The company has a large staff of professional cleaners who can clean your office or home. Appointments can be made for the next day. Clients do not need to wait for several days or a week for a cleaning crew to show up. They also take great pride in the work they perform. They will refund money to clients who are not totally satisfied.

 

  1. Eyeview  screenshot-2016-09-27-14-57-45

Eyeview is also part of the booming adtech industry. However, this company’s specialty is creating ads that are completely video. The demand for video ads has increased significantly during the past several years. Eyeview has been one of the leading companies when it comes to meeting this demand. Revenue for the company increased 55 times from 2011 to 2014. This company shows no signs of slowing down because video ads are becoming more popular every day.

 

  1. NewsCred  Screenshot 2016-09-27 15.01.46.png

This is a marketing company. They offer their clients different methods than the ones that are usually utilized by other marketing companies. This new approach to marketing has attracted some of the largest companies in the world. They now have Hewlett Packard, Visa and Pepsi among their impressive list of regular clients.

 

  1. AdTheorent  screenshot-2016-09-27-15-10-34

This NYC company makes advertisements that are specifically for mobile devices. They use a special system that ensures ads are only shown to the target audience of the company that is doing the advertising. This type of technology uses a data mining system that has become the envy of the adtech industry. Their list of clients continues to grow because of the very positive word of mouth they have received.

Edge 7

 

So after 6 months with the Samsung Edge 7, I will finally  review it. Talk about perfect timing with the release of the iPhone 7 just last week 🙂 I feel to really give a review you should test it for a certain amount of time and not within a few days or weeks.

file-sep-21-10-16-34-am

 

The Edge 7 offers a beautiful curved 5.5in Super AMOLED screen 1,440 x 2,560 Quad HD resolution. It includes an Octa-core 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos 8890 processor. It has a pixel index of 534ppi compared to iPhones 6s which has 401ppi. Converting from an iPhone to an android device can be a bit tricky in the beginning. Being accustomed to a certain OS takes a bit of time to get unused to. The transferring of data from my iPhone to the S7 Edge was a breeze. One of the advantages of a Droid device is you can access any file and actually control the phone (themes) and its features. Unlike the iPhone where your abilities to maneuver or personalize your phone are restricted.

America’s Best Network

One of the features I fell in love with was, of course, the rear 12megapixel lens with f/1.7 dual pixel sensor and phase-detect autofocus. Every picture you take is crisp clear. The ability to take photos in a low lighted area is a brilliant feature that iPhone 6s don’t have yet. Samsung also included a sweet Pro mode feature, which enables you to fully control every aspect of your photo.  I boosted my storage space to 256gb using a sd card. I can also record in 4K quality . Did I mention it’s dust and water-resistant (IP68) . The advantage with storage SD cards is that you can interchange them as soon as they are filled up. The fast charge or wireless charging can juice up your 3,600mAh battery in about an hour and a half.  More details HERE.

Pro-Mode

Overall I think the S7 Edge is a fine piece of technology and investment. With Virtual Capabilities (not yet tested by me). Smartphones are only going to get much more sophisticated and are being pushed to the limit. Please check for my future posts which will include the Virtual Gear from Samsung!

September Chills

 

Hey Everyone

I hope you all enjoyed your summer vacations. For some reason, it felt like June was just last month. Since it’s already Mid-September you know that means series premiers! I have a hunch that this year there will be more a lot more interesting shows than there was last year. I know many of you are relieved that your kids are off to school too. Believe me, I have a nephew who’s only 6!

Screenshot 2016-09-14 14.32.40.png

Make sure your FiOS DVR boxes have enough space for the new shows premiering. One of the many shows that I’m intrigued to watch is Lethal Weapon, The Exorcist, and Marvel’s Luke Cage. Each of a different genre. I’m attracted to the old school brand with a new twist to it. Another show I’m watching today  Wednesday the 14th is the new season of American Horror Story! Did I also mention I was watching the new season of The Profit. A business reality-show that can benefit anyone who’s interested in marketing and branding. Marcus Lamonis goes around the U.S saving companies and jobs for the everyday people. Which shows are you going to watch this season?

Having 100mbps DL /100mbps UP sounds nice right? The meaning of download is how fast we retrieve data from the internet, while upload means how our devices are allowed to upload data. So why do we settle for speeds of 100/20 – 50/10? Broadband speeds are measured in “megabits per second” Bits are tiny units of data, with a megabit representing a million of them. With FiOS Triple Play for only $69.99, this includes the 100/100 internet, custom TV + Phone service. Look at it as a small investment for you and your close ones.
