I have to admit: changing the name of a brand usually revamps the marketing and advertising. Google knows this. Obviously. Just look at the Google search engine! The logo changes every once in a while, and sometimes they get pretty creative.
Part of the problem with technology these days is a lot seems to get obsolete in favor of more advanced versions. Think Terminator here. Yes, we loved Arnold, but let’s face it: the T-1000 kicked his tail to kingdom come. Because the T-1000 was more advanced.
When it comes to moving around in the course of a small business’ every day efforts, finding parking can be one of the most daunting tasks there is. QuickPay looks to make that a lot simpler with a little help from mobile devices.

As if Google Docs couldn’t get more cloud-injected and internet-ethereal…. There has to be this Android app called GDocs to make it go supersonic. You can think of this app GDocs as the ultra auto-attendant of the word-processing arena. And there’s no beating it (thank you, Google).

Particularly for mobile businesses — entrepreneurs constantly on the move — the app from SAP (rhymes) called the Travel Expense Report brings a kind off convenience unheard of.
There’s something nostalgic and very corporate about a whiteboard, isn’t there? For those old schoolers out there, you just can’t beat the good ol’ marker and board while you wear the nifty plaid tie and shirt as you pep up your marketing or advertising or whatever team for your small business, whatever that business may be. Has that flair of teamwork, don’t you think?
Trust is a big issue when it comes to small business. Imagine the quality of customer retention when businesses rely on “trust” in dealing with finances and payments. That’s what Venmo seeks to attempt — and this is an Android and iPhone app we’re looking at. Okay, wait a second…. What about apps like iSwipe, Square, even PayPal?
Bluetooth really is a beautiful thing — especially when you have the power to turn a printer possessed, sort of like Transformers. Let’s roll out, Optimus Prime!
