    July 7, 2014 Jake DiMare

    *Disclaimer: Results may vary. Greatness may rely heavily on whether or not you are a yuppie (like me).   Ever wonder how a data analyst and a strategist decide what neighborhoods in Los Angeles they should focus their apartment hunting efforts on?

    June 20, 2013 Jake DiMare

    It’s been a little over a day since I picked up my Google Glass at Google’s Chelsea Market offices in Lower Manhattan and yeah, I’m impressed. There’s more to say than I have time to share so I’m going to stick to the high level stuff. Besides, more than enough people have and will continue…

    March 29, 2013 Jake DiMare

    So excited…I was notified this evening that I’ve been selected for the Google Glass explorer program. This is some serious Willy Wonka golden ticket action for me. It feels like I won the lottery. The #ifihadaglass contest was to share in a tweet or on Google+ what I, as an individual, would do with my…

    April 9, 2012 Jake DiMare

    I finally got the opportunity to download Instagram for Android over the weekend and I have to say…I haven’t fallen more deeply in love with a mobile application since I discovered Space Cat for Android.

    June 8, 2011 Jake DiMare

    On my way up to the 11th floor this morning one of the elevator news screens presented me with the question: ‘What is the cloud?’ and then went on to say something about Steve Jobs bringing computing to the stratosphere.

    February 11, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I have recently begun to feel disillusioned with the news media in the United States. I believe they spend a lot of time reporting on stories people don’t seem to care about while at the same time complaining that the news industry is falling apart and it is all the internet’s fault. I’d like to write an…

    In following with their standard tradition Google sneaked right up and dropped an interesting new feature onto the Gmail platform yesterday. Google Buzz is a new tool within Gmail that pretty much mimics the functionality of Twitter and then some. Those that were invited to beta Google Wave will probably notice a couple similarities.

  • Orwellian Dystopia?

    February 4, 2010 Jake DiMare

    According to people familiar with the investigation officials at the NSA have been working with Google to investigate cyber-attacks.  The NSA’s general counsel drafted what’s known as a cooperative research and development agreement to work with Google. Hmm…before I go any further, let me say I am a patriot and one of Google’s biggest fan.

    Sometimes it can be amusing to wonder how historical events might have unfolded differently if modern technology existed then. Since today is the day we observe the life of Martin Luther King Jr. let’s envision the effect on specific events during the Civil Rights Movement. In a very general way, the Civil Rights Movement would…
