Business Idea: GlideApp For WordPress

Glideapps.com is an interesting product – it helps you create apps from Google Sheets (a spreadsheet) and publish it via a url (or, optionally, publish directly to an app store). Which makes me wonder – why is it so hard to make an app for WordPress? It seems to me that someone needs to create…

Ridiculous Trend: Web Sites That Bar Users From Using Private Mode

Recently I have noticed that more and more publications are blocking users who use private mode in their browsers. Instead, users are being requested to either sign up, login or turn off private mode browsing. I use Firefox which defaults to private mode all the time. As such, I have been regularly shut out of…

The Government Does Not Want You To Use Facebook Chat

Actually it does. But that’s precisely why you shouldn’t. Facebook unveiled plans about a year ago to add end-to-end encryption on all its chat products and the Government just doesn’t like it.

A Bitcoin Chart…

Everyone has seen this break…. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be follow-through! The forecast for this break (according to classical charting principles) is close to the breakout point for this last run-up – around 4000.00. Can you imagine if we give back all those gains?
