Psy breaking records with “Gentleman” – Again!

Psy – the artist (debatable) responsible for giving us “Gangnam Style” is now back, and breaking more records.

After reading this post on TechCrunch, Psy has released another hit with “Gentleman” and accumulated 38 million hits on day 1 of appearing on YouTube.

Gangnam Style was the first video to hit 1 billion views back in December and achieved a whopping $8 million in revenue for Google via Youtube!

So with “Gentleman” reaching an audience of 100 million in just four days, there could be a surge from the same artist to beat records associated with the social platform.

Definitely not my cup of tea, but here is the video regardless..

Facebook Home

A little time has passed since my postings, but I will keep them more regular I promise. Found this while browsing Digital Buzz the other day. Facebook are looking to keep connections everywhere whilst using a phone.

Facebook Home

Facebook home allows communication with friends no matter what tasks are being carried out on the mobile, therefore eradicating the need to actually use the Facebook app. You can Facebook at any time more conveniently.

Sound Of The Underground

It has been a while since my last post! I have legitimate reasoning though. I have been involved in a lot of uni work over the past few weeks, preparing for group assignments and placement searches. I am actually posting about something I found a couple of weeks back, which I found really interesting.

I’m a music fan, as I’m sure a lot of people are. My iPod is an essential to any journey I make alone, as a pass time and a source of entertainment. Music makes everything better – socializing, working, even training.

But what about when your not alive?

Poor view? Pogoseat forward!

Have you ever been given a poor view at a sporting event? Pillars in your way, or even way back in row Z?

It is always even more annoying when you can actually see seats with a better view available, that nobody has taken!

Pogoseat

The chances of grabbing those seats without being caught by a steward or a ticket man without telling you to move out of the seats are slim! Well thanks to Pogoseat, there is now a way to improve your sporting experiences, and occupy those seats with a better view!

Although this is idea is based for American Sports, such as basketball and baseball, the innovative application is a groundbreaking idea. So, how does it work?

Deal with your Face?!

Well its been a long time since I’ve last posted on here which is not good! But I’m back now, and looking to get this away from being stagnant for as long as it has been!

I’ve been on my summer holidays from uni and I’ve had a quality couple of months. Been on a quiet holiday with my mates to a nice rural place called Malia.. hmm. Also had a “quiet weekend” at Leeds Festival which was absolutely amazing!

I need to get my head screwed back on for uni as I go back in the next couple of weeks, so I’ve been doing a bit of Internet scouring and found a curious video involving Facebook and checking in.

Here it goes!

FaceDeals is a system which is looking to change the way in which people check-in on Facebook. For me personally, I don’t really check in much, unless I’m somewhere I feel is worthy of a check-in – at the airport or at Anfield perhaps. But anyway, this is crazy! Continue reading

As a matter of Pinterest.

Another few days has passed where I havn’t done any posts, again – apologies!

This time, I’ve been doing quite a lot of uni work as well as checking out a new platform – Pinterest.

And I’ve got to say, I’m very impressed. I had heard about the concept a while back during a lecture, but for some reason I delayed looking into the idea of it, even though i was interested in it.

Sounds so simple, a couple of boards, add pins to them, share with followers. Thats because it is so simple, yet so effective. Boards can created to completely shape your personality, from a board on favourite foods to even what clothes you enjoy wearing. I have no followers just yet (ha ha) but I’m not too bothered. I’m enjoying scouring the internet and pinning out things that reflect my views or my interests.

If you want to check out my profile on there, by all means your welcome to here.

Can see a big future for Pinterest, and who knows where it will go!? Sky’s the limit!
Heres a post I recently pinned to my boards, when the mighty Nelson Mandela took a trip to Anfield!
