    Geolary Shows How Your Salary Lives Up to Your Neighbours’ 

    We’ve all heard the saying “Keeping up with the Jones’”. Well, now with a new iPhone app called Geolary, you can see if you’re even financially able to compete with your neighbours in the race to flaunt the latest and greatest.

    This new app, Geolary, gives you a pretty sound idea of where your income level compares to others in your neighbourhood – or in other locations you might be consider moving to. Wait… what??, you ask? How is that possible? Well, the app asks you for your own salary and then compares it based on location to other salary data, letting you know where you stand in comparison. So you can soon find out why your neighbour just drove home in a shiny, new Mercedes while you’re buffing out scratches on your Corolla.

    Geloary requires location data to work, and will localize your income based on your country’s currency, automatically. Once you’ve picked a location to search, the app tells you the lowest and average salary in the area. It also delivers the gap between your salary and the salaries of others.

    The app is useful if you’re in the job market and want to know what you’d need to earn to maintain your income at a level that the rest of those in the area you are searching are at. Nothing like a little bargaining power.

    The War of the Apps and more. Pt 1. 

    The distinct feeling I have, is that we are looking at an era when we have a TON of really exciting Mobile tech starting to catch hold, but at the same time – maybe we have too many operating systems and standards, already.

    The Abdroid has taken up a huge Market share, and now Android and the Iphone platforms are getting stormed by Windows Phones, the new Pads from Samsung and soon, GASP, RIM.

    Where does this all end?

    This confuses the poor end user and can rear back and bite people in this space.

    This is going to get really interesting, and fast.

    IOS 4.2: Ten Features It Still Needs – PCWorld Business Center 


    Show Floor of Macworld 2007

    Image via Wikipedia


    Now that iOS 4.2 is out and we’ve lauded its best features, it’s time to take a look at its biggest omissions. (It’s only fair, right?) We took an informal survey of Macworld editors to determine the most-hoped-for features that still aren’t here, then whittled the list down to the top ten.

    Efficient and Effective (and Free) Mobile Apps For Busy Folks – DigiFams 

    If you’re like me, you probably at one point have downloaded a lot of apps because they’re…well…FREE, but only to find out that they either just waste your time and not worthy of the space it occupied or it becomes one that only gets used when killing time. Well, after 2 years of carrying a smart phone I finally narrowed down my list of apps. I kept the ones I use frequently and are now my mainstay iPhone residents that I can’t do without. These are ones that keep me efficient and effective as I go about my daily routine.
