In he past, if you had a message you wanted to deliver after your death you would have just wrote a letter. Now a UK startup, DeadSocial, will allow anyone to speak from the dead, literally. It allows the user to schedule final goodbyes and secret messages that will only be communicated after death via a user’s Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts. That’s right! You can now schedule messages to be delivered after you are six feet under.
James Norris, the founder of DeadSocial, will be among 19 final startups to pitch, present, and launch their startup later this month at a ‘Startup Rally’ in Amsterdam powered by Microsoft Bizspark. DeadSocial is free, and will remain free throughout its life span So, how does it work?
Simple. Go to the website and sign-up to become a user. Once you are signed up, you will receive a URL that can be shared between friends and family. DeadSocial will unveil a special version that will seamlessly integrate with Facebook Pages.
Visitors to DeadSocial can create an account and snag their username, but the social site will not be fully functional until it’s launched at the rally to the public.
What do you think about DeadSocial? Will you leave secret messages for loved one? Comment below and let us know.
Limit Environmental Damage From Mobile Devices
In the past decade, cell phones and other mobile devices have gained a lot of popularity. A large majority of people rely on their mobile devices to communicate with the world on a daily basis. With growing popularity, manufactures are constantly updating the current model with new and improved versions.
The massive amount of cell phones and other mobile devices in circulation are brewing up a huge concern for the environment. “As of 2003, there are more than 500 million mobile phones waiting to be recycled in the US; either in drawers, or already in the waste stream. Another 100 million or so will be added this year and even more next year.” What do we do?
In an effort to limit the environmental impact that disposing of mobile devices could have on the environment an increasing amount of states are passing laws concerning the disposal and recycle of cell phones and other mobile devices. The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Act (AB1125) took effect in February of 2006. It prohibits the public from disposing of non-rechargeable batteries and single use batteries, and places responsibility on cell phone providers to collect and recycle the types of batteries that they carry. Now you have some options.
All the cell phone providers like AT&T and Verizon have recycling programs for your unwanted or out dated mobile devices. You can even donate the old devices to charity. Charities like Cell Phones for Soldiers and Recycle for Breast Cancer can recycle and use the proceeds to support their non-profit organization.
Funny iPhone Cases
iPhone cases come in all different shapes and sizes. I think it’s possible to say that every kind of case for the iPhone has been thought of. I came to this conclusion while researching new iPhone cases for my 4s. I ran across some pretty funny cases.
I found cases with faces jumping out of them. I found a case that looked just like a sushi plate. It was unbelievable to find all of the different types and styles of cases. The variety is overwhelming. It was impossible for me to make a decision. I need your help with this one. What is the funniest or weirdest iPhone case you found? What iPhone case would you recommend?
