I help businesses grow and get customers via the Internet.
So if you Google something, my customers need to come on the top of the page. That is Part 1.
Then, when the customer goes to the website, do they like what they see? Is it easy for them to use the website? Does the website convince the customer that my client is what they need? That’s part 2
Part 3 is following up. After a customer leaves, you want him to come back. I make sure my customers do that.
And part 4 is the social media. Are you on Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and other directories? Do you talk to your customers online? Do they know who you are? Do they like you?
My niece: wow thats hard work !
I was testing out Vimeo’s new HTML 5 video player that’s in beta. And I was thinking about how HTML5 would compete with Adobe Flash.
Came across this interesting tidbit on the HTML5 Wikipedia page:
The HTML5 editors are Ian Hickson of Google, Inc. and David Hyatt of Apple, Inc.
Hmm, now that’s interesting. Could this be why Apple Iphones and Ipads STILL don’t support Flash player? Do the people at Apple think that HTML5 will eventually overtake any need for plugin based plays and other RIAs? It seems so. So they’re dealing with the temporary pain of not supporting something because they don’t think it’s the sustainable technology. If that’s the case, I support it too.
However, it also seems like it will be at least a decade before HTML 5 becomes a mainstream standard. So what’s a person to do in the meantime?
Google maps is awesome 90% of the time. But the few times that I’ve needed to look up addresses and places in other countries, I get so annoyed. When you zoom into a city map of another country, the labels are no longer in English. Instead they are in the local language of that country. This makes it impossible for me to use, and understand the map. Google: why woud you choose to do this?
If I’m signed in, and my primary language is English, why then, when I zoom into Greece, I’m confronted with Greek? That’s just silly.
I haven’t found a single one yet. There is no “the best humidifier” out there. You have to settle for one that somewhat meets your needs.
And reviews for humidifiers fall into two categories. One type are about how much the humidifier in general helps with dryness, and not actually about the quality and specifics of THE humidifier they are using. The person writing the review would probably have made the same review for any other humidifier. The other type of reviews are complaining about something the humidifier lacks, or the experience of it, and how it annoys the person.
Here’s a list of wants:
- A water tank that is easily refillable without me having to remove the tank and/or bring the humidifier to the sink.
- A tank and fan resistant to calcium and bacteria build up.
- A chemical to put in the tank to keep it clean so I don’t have to wash it so often.
- A water tank and parts that are dishwasher safe for cleaning.
- No yucky wicks or filters. A wickless or filterless system that works.
- A fan noise level that is a soothing whisper. No rattling. No grinding. All I should hear is air.
- No expensive parts that need to be replaced so often. Every 6 months is okay. Yearly would be excellent.
- A humidity control that actually works. It shuts off when appropriate, and turns on when appropriate.
- An option between auto on/off or always on setting.
- A timer setting.
- A tank large enough to work for 2 days without needing a refill.
- A subtle visual signal that the tank needs refilling when it is almost empty.
- A safety feature that turns off the machine when the tank is completely empty.
- A stable base that sits equally well on carpets, tables or wood floors without scratching.
- A cord that is at least 5 feet long.
- Optional: An option to buy a humidifier with an air purifier. And the ability to turn them on and off independently from each other.
- Optional: Attachable wheels on the base for very large capacity humidifiers.
- Optional: A setting to blow the humid air in a fan like manner like a car AC.
- Optional: (This is the killer option). An option to get cool mist in the summer, and warm air in the winter.
Where o where art thou my dream humidifier?
