Global TV: Pinterest
Each week I join the Sunday Morning News on Global Calgary to talk the latest in tech, gadgets, and to walk you through the ways you can make the gadgets you already own work better.
Here are the segment notes and links from March 18, 2012:
Pinterest is the talk of the social web this year with traffic growing exponentially and marketers scrambling to take advantage. The idea is simple. As you wander the web, you can grab images from articles and websites and pin them to your own boards at Pinterest.
Your boards can be about baking, hair styles, vacations, fashion, art, inspiration, and more. So popular is the site, (70% female) it’s being cited as one of the timesuckers that is cutting into Facebook‘s traffic numbers.
While guys can get in on the pinning, Gentlemint is a copycat with a definite manly twist with categories geared towards cars, suits, and gadgetry.
APP OF THE WEEK:
Snaptax is a free app that lets you do your taxes, with your iPhone. If you’ve got a simple return (under 65, just a T4, no kids, or dependents) simply take a picture of your T4 and this app does the rest.
