It Makes Sense

25th October

It makes sense. You’re still in the first generation of consumer cell phones. Of course you’re going to be addicted to them more than people will be in the future. You’re just—more comfortable with your phone. It makes uncomfortable elevator rides go quicker. Eating alone feels less awkward when scrolling through Facebook posts, as does dinner at the family reunion. For a little while, why is it so bad to join the catatonic masses with eyes-glazed by the flicker of their phones?

Why? Because you’re sacrificing your now for someone else’s yesterday. Everything you see online has already happened. You’re more content spending time watching a video or getting mad at a status that happened in the past than actually living where you actually are. The vicious cycle worsens: the more you envelop yourself in your phone, the harder it … Read More »

Wouldn’t eBay be much more awesome if you didn’t have to spend any money but could still get stuff you wanted? You’re young, in desperate need of cool stuff, and broke at the same time. If that’s you, you’re going to like this article. There is a new app called “Yerdle” that allows you to go shopping for free. Quite literally. The catch? You have to give away stuff to get stuff. Here’s how it works:

Download the Yerdle app from the app store or go to http://Yerdle.com.
Dig in your closet, garage, or basement to find cool stuff you just don’t need as much any more.
Add a picture of the item and a description.
Wait for hundreds of imaginary points to start being bid on your item.
Mail the item to the winner—and winner pays shipping.

It’s that easy to get rid of stuff. … Read More »

The following is a story published February 23, 2014 by Samantha Thieke of WLFI (wlfi.com)

Fifteen-year-old Spencer Jordan said he is always thinking up new ideas.

“I’m a dreamer. I sit in school with a notepad and I come up with ideas,” said Jordan.

The Frankfort teen said his latest idea came to him after getting frustrated when having to switch back and forth between social media apps.

“I thought, man, this is really complicated. So, I started to come up with a way to integrate them all together,” said Jordan.

Jordan brainstormed the concept for a new search engine. The concept, known as “Layers”, incorporates social media feeds inside of search results, but Jordan says Layers is much different than a typical search engine.

“We want to simplify things so somebody can search something and automatically see posts from Facebook, Twitter, Instragram, YouTube, … Read More »
