Google (S GOOG) really wants businesses to use its Hangouts video chat, and new changes make it easier for companies to actually do so: Hangouts can now be accessed with any Google account, even if the user doesn’t have a Google+ profile, and Google Apps customers can now chat with up to 14 other people in HD.

Moving away from requiring Google+ profiles for Hangouts will undoubtedly spur further speculations about the future of Google’s social network, but the move also addresses a real problem: Many Google users only have a Google+ profile for their personal account, but not for their work email — or if they have both, they’re likely just going to use one of them. Tying Hangouts to Google+ profiles not only complicated Hangouts usage, but actually also Google+ itself.

The 15-person upgrade could further help companies that have slightly bigger teams to give Hangouts a try…

Profit or Loss??

Everyone here on this beautiful Earth is ultimately striving for the same thing; Profit. Being deemed as “successful” and/or wealthy” does not necessarily mean that you have “gained” anything meaningful. Sure the money, cars, and expensive clothes are nice while they last… but what are you really going to profit from them??

 

No matter how hard we have pushed in life and worked towards a profitable “happily ever after”, we all have… and probably will again, experience great loss. Whether it be the loss of a great job, a loved one, or even your home… we will at some point in this lifetime “Lose”. There is however an underlying solution to this misfortune which is unfortunately hard to conquer due to our human nature but its as simple as this: “Turn your loss into a profit, so that you…

COMING SOON – MYRTLE BEACH, SC

 

 

Over the past 23 years that I have spent in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina there have been many attractions, restaurants, and people who have come and gone. The area has slowly transformed from the mostly vacant beach area to which we would travel for a trip to the mall into a fast paced tourist attraction that people visit for a fun filled coastal vacation.

Although through the years Myrtle Beach has been privileged to gain some of the best attractions in the World and especially the East Coast, I am personally thrilled about the newest addition to our collection world renowned entertainment. The Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Hollywood Wax Museum will be making headlines all over the United States as it Opens its doors during the Summer of 2014.

 

If you are planning a vacation for the summer head to Myrtle Beach and experience the new Hollywood Wax Museum, the world famous Planet Hollywood, Wonderworks (the upside down building), and have the very best experience with family and friends. You can also find great deals such as the pick 3 pass, which includes admission to Hollywood Wax Museum, the Zombie Apocalypse Haunted Outbreak, and Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors.

 

This information and these particular attractions come highly regarded with my personal recommendation. I know first hand that there is nothing better than a relaxing yet fun filled vacation with the ones you love most. The sunshine and beautiful beaches are not all that the Grand Strand has to offer. Myrtle Beach is jam packed with excitement and once in a lifetime journeys… come on down and check it out! I extend an early Welcome on behalf of the city I so dearly love.

The Samsung Galaxy design hasn’t changed, but the person in charge of it has

Gigaom

After debuting the Galaxy S5 with incremental design changes from the prior few models, Samsung is mixing up the leadership of its mobile design teamLee Min-hyouk, the company’s vice president for mobile design, is stepping up and replacing Chang Dong-hoon, who had been leading the team, according to a Reuters report on Thursday.

Thanks largely to its Galaxy line of handsets from 2010 through now, Samsung has become the top-selling smartphone brand in the world. Design likely isn’t the reason why, however; at least not primarily. The company has built up sales through aggressive marketing campaigns with big budgets, for example. And while Samsung has previously touted the design elements found in the Galaxy phones, you don’t have to look far for consumer criticism of it: The Galaxy line hasn’t changed much in the past three models and some prefer metal phones over Samsung’s use of plastic.

FTC says Snapchat misled users about “disappearing” photos, failed to secure personal data

Gigaom

The Federal Trade Commission on Thursday announced that has it reached a settlement with Snapchat, a popular vanishing message service, over the company’s “false” promises.

The FTC points out that Snapchat marketing claimed that messages “disappear forever” even though message recipients could employ a variety of easy workarounds, including screenshots and third-party apps, to preserve a copy of the messages indefinitely.

The agency’s complaint includes photos of Snapchat’s own marketing material, which promises users that the photos or messages they send will quickly disappear. Here’s an image from the complaint, where a photo is set to vanish in 7 seconds (but that a recipient could have preserved anyways):

The FTC also claims that Snapchat collected information from iPhone(s aapl) users’ contact lists without their knowledge or permissions, and that it failed to secure its FindFriends feature, which led to a hacking breach that exposed data of 4.6 million users.

The FTC’s complaint is…
