FreedomPop Making Run at Larger Mobile Service Providers with Raised Money

Posted on

Most people who own and use a smartphone will agree that the price for the service has increased rather drastically in recent years to the point where they are paying three or four times the amount of money they once paid a few years ago. FreedomPop understands this issue and wants to help anyone out who feels like they are paying too much for their service. The LA startup that has been up and running since 2012 is looking to provide individuals with free text, talk and data, all without signing a contract or staying on for an extensive period of time. With the recent money it raised, it is now possible for the company to expand its services to even more customers as it looks to offer as many individuals as possible its free service.

FreedomPop has been looking to provide quality mobile service for individuals around the country, but as it is offering the services for free it does need to seek out money from external sources in order to improve its network and to buy the data from other mobile service providers. Essentially, FreedomPop buys data at a flat rate from Sprint. The company that gives the data to its subscribers for free. Each individual is able to receive up to 500 MB worth of data a month and then the amount of money after it does cost a flat rate. This makes it a quality product for anyone who is looking to reduce the amount of money they spend on a mobile cell phone.

The $30 million brought in recently brings the total amount of money the company has raised in the last three years up to $50 million. This makes it especially desirable and it shows it is able to continue to expand against the larger companies.


Image Recognition and the New Sales Technology

Posted on

When it comes to selling products, the more outreach options someone uses the better off they are going to be. While marketing and other methods of reaching other customers is a good idea, there are other ways to do this. When someone wears one of your articles of clothing, you want to make sure other people take notice and know the product and who made it. Additionally, if there are other looks out there that are similar to yours, you want people to come to your store and purchase your products, even if they see that of a different designer. All of this is possible with the help of image recognition services online. This is a new path of Internet search that has not yet been around, but it is something that is going to give you the ability to reach out to more clients than ever before and truly offer up an interactive method for expanding your client base.

With the Image Recognition software being developed by companies like Slyce, it is possible to catalog your product into an online catalog of millions of items. There are going to be times when someone is out on the street and they see a product they like, but they might not know the designer or where to purchase. They also might see it and want to find something similar that doesn’t cost as much. Previously, they needed to type in descriptive phrasing into a search engine and hope that they have the ability to type in an adequate enough phrase. Otherwise, they might receive all sorts of results that have nothing to do with what they are looking for. The image recognition feature is far different and it makes sure that people can find exactly what they need.

The individual needs to simply take a picture of the product with their phone and then search the databanks with the image. The programming technology can cross-reference the imagery of the picture with what is in the catalog, bringing up not only exact matches, but similar options, which is perfect when someone wants to find an article of clothing, shoe or similar item that costs less.

Now, in order for you to take advantage of these kinds of search features, you need to have your material uploaded into this catalog. This way, more potential customers are able to find your product and buy from you than what you are previously use to.

Forbes reports a public interview held at Stanford University with Powell Jobs that saw her detail her views and opinions on a number of issues in the political and business arenas. The founder of the College Track organization, which assists low income students in gaining access to higher education stated she believes the business world can do more for social entrepreneurs to provide motivation through monetary rewards that are rarely available through the programs and businesses they found.

Powell Jobs is now estimated to be worth over $19 billion and is ranked as the sixth richest woman in the world, she also founded the Emerson Collective, which is designed to challenge the status quo of the modern world.

Obama Administration Backs Same Sex Marriages Nationwide

The Administration Said Banning Same-Sex Marriages Is Incompatible With The U.S. Constitution

Move over Pat Robertson, and all the other haters that say marriage is only legal for couples of the opposite gender. The President and his cabinet say that’s narrow-minded, antiquated religious separatism, and that thinking has not place in government decision making because the constitution protects the rights of all citizens.

The Obama administration filed a brief that supports gay couples who are in the middle of disputes with states like Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky. These states and others claim gays and lesbians don’t have straight people’s rights. That belief is not what America stands for. What we say and do has an impact on nations around the world, and the administration know that.

This is the first time the administration has publically made a filing with the Supreme Court, and the administration’s message is clear. Gay marriages should be legal nationwide. But, like Bernardo Chua noted this will be a radical switch in perception for the righteous that claim God, through the teachings of the Bible, intended marriage to be between and man and woman. The Bible has been a wonderful teacher when it is read and understood for its story value, but it is also an ornery menace when it is used to fuel the judgmental beliefs of others.
