how to get high speed Internet mobile 4G?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Every time I travel to the U.S. I have always the problem of being disconnected from internet (email, favorite websites, news, etc.) and my family. Not so much for not having a cell phone, the problem is that the prices offered to me by cell phone companies using roaming international seem an exaggerated financial abuse.

But in my next trip to the United States maybe I will buy a new cell phone, specifically the new HTC 4G Evo Design, with Boost Mobile like cell phone company operator, with many advantages over other cell phone companies, because Boost Mobile offers customers 4G at its best price point with payments that shrink to as low as $40 a month!. This is important to me because my budget at the end of the trip is usually limited.  
 
Please all will remembers this word: BENEFITS.  Why use Boost Mobile would benefit me? 
 
Because the benefits for consumers with Boost Mobile 4G are: faster data speeds and the ability to do different things at once without having to sacrifice network, speed and quality. Like streaming, recording video and downloading email. Plus, Boost Mobile take full advantage of faster data speeds on the Sprint 4G (WiMAX) network, available in 71 markets. 
 
Now, what type of phone would I need to have to enjoy this “magic” 4G technology?, I prefer to use  the  new HTC 4G Evo Design, with a 5MP low-light camera, incredible 4G speeds, and a sleek design, Android OS, with a 1.2 Ghz Qualcomm processor, mobile hotspot capability and...without a suffocating contract. 
 
Boost Mobile doesn’t tie you down to a contract. On the contrary, having Boost Mobile doesn’t require you to have a credit check or contract to stay with us. However, if you do decide to stay with us, Boost Mobile will reward your loyalty. This loyalty program named “ Shrinking Payments/ReduPago” can reduce your payments in $5 increments each month after 6 on-time payments, for a max of $15 off your monthly recurring charge.

Want to know how will the powerful future of the glasses?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since someone realized, maybe over a thousand years ago, with a piece of transparent sphere or segment of a crystal could see better, the lenses have come a long way to our eyes.
 
I started wearing glasses at a very small kid, some people inherited money ... I inherited myopia. I was about five years old when I used my first glasses. The frame was a seedy and brown plastic and "lens" really were a somewhat plastic or synthetic material to avoid break them.
 
I clearly remember the first time that I was lost my first glasses: I remember I was playing in the playground of my school, I took off my glasses because I would not harm them, when I returned to look for my precious glasses... PUFF! they were gone!.
 
Then, when I was 21 years old, I had a surgery laser eye procedure, which seemed great, but then at the age of 33 years... SURPRISE! Myopia had returned, a little bit,  but returned.
 
What happened? I had to start (again!) to use prescription glasses, but with one small difference: they are more fun now!. They come in all colors and shapes possible and excellent example of  stylish glasses that you can be seen in Zenni Optical webpage right now. For example, you can find prescription glasses from $6.95 or much better (I assure you) can to use Zenni Frame Fit™ to see the frames right on your face!. To me this technology is AWESOME!. Please, feel free to take a look at some of the fantastic deals on their website.

Emerging technology takes glasses to a whole new level, with augmented reality glasses (what kind of magic is this!) you can look like a cyber warrior. Please check out this Emerging Technology Info Graphic from Zenni Optical and you can see the evoluton and  part of the amazing future of the lens glasses. Enjoy it!.

Qué debes saber antes de comprar un reloj con GPS para entrenar?

Actualmente existe una ¿fiebre? por entregarse a cuanto maratón, carrera, 10K, 5K, todos los K's que quieras y empezar a correr cual Forrest Gump por el asfalto o a campo traviesa. 


De hecho, esto ha impulsado las ventas de terminales electrónicos con capacidades  que van desde medir las pulsaciones del corazón hasta el recorrido efectuado, usando para ello el tracking o seguimiento por GPS.

Ahora bién, existen diferentes criterios cuando a la hora de considerar, elegir, comprar y usar un reloj o equipo con GPS:

1) La señal del GPS: mientras más rápido se obtenga la posición, menor oportunidad habrá de tener errores a la hora de establecer rangos, puntuaciones, records o marcas personales.


2) Precisión de Entrenamiento: ¿Qué tan preciso es el equipo en el seguimiento de la información para que esta se pueda adaptar a los entrenamientos?


3) Duración de la batería: una de las mayores pegas o fallas de todos los equipos que actualmente usan baterías (celulares, laptops, relojes, etc) es el rendimiento de la batería, obviamente a mayor uso del equipo mayor será el desgaste de la bateria del mismo. 

4) Facilidad de instalación y uso: si es difícil de operar sin haber empezado a correr, qué quedará cuando estemos sudando la gota gorda? mientras más sencillo sea de operar pues mucho mejor no?

5) Características de entrenamiento: los relojes y equipos GPS varían dependiendo del entrenamiento y uso que se le dará, escoja el que se adapte a sus necesidades.

6) Precio! (por supuesto! por el dinero!): todos los cachivaches electrónicos de calidad hoy en día quizá sean un poco costosos, esos tiene su razón de ser: CONTROL DE CALIDAD.

Paypal compra Card.io

El día de hoy,  el Vice Presidente de la división de Productos Globales de Paypal, Hill Ferguson, anunció en el blog de la compañía que recién habían adquirido a Card.io, empresa ubicada en San Francisco que desarrolla tecnología para capturar información de tarjetas de crédito mediante el uso de la cámara en un smartphone o teléfono inteligente. 

De esta manera, se integra a Paypal un grupo de desarrolladores que complementará las actividades relativas al programa Paypal Mobile Here, aplicación que busca agilizar las transacciones monetarias usando el monedero digital que espera lanzar dentro de poco los muchachos de Paypal.

Creo que esta asociación ha sido una decisión acertada por parte de ambas compañías, por una parte Paypal se beneficia con el conocimiento y background de Card.io a la hora de desarrollar tecnología que facilite las transacciones monetarias entre los usuario y por otra parte los muchachos de Card.io experimentarán una mejora notable en sus ingresos y apoyo de un gigante como lo es Paypal, algo que no cualquiera empresa del tipo "Startup" puede darse el lujo de tener.
