Don’t have enough money to go traveling? Think you can’t save enough in your current situation to realize your dream of traveling the world? Well, you are wrong.

The perception that travel is expensive keeps many people from embarking on a journey around the world. They think to themselves “it’s too expensive and too difficult and I’ll never be able to do it.” But travel is not as expensive as it appears and even if you can’t save thousands upon thousands of dollars, you can always find work overseas. It’s not as hard as you imagine and it’s an option overlooked too often by travelers.

Finding work overseas is not like finding a job in the United States. It’s a much more informal process, and if you remember you are looking for a job rather than a career, and stay flexible with your options, you’ll be able…

Peek Is A Playful Calendar App, From An Ex-IDEO Designer, For People Who Aren’t Forever Busy

Wow! Hope it’s to my liking.

Peek is a new (paid) calendar app for iOS that’s aiming to appeal to the social middle ground of people whose lives don’t consist of non-stop meetings from 9 ’til 9. So not a calendar app for professional calendar nerds, then.

It’s an attempt at designed interaction, with a minimalist interface that incorporates a playful, gesture-based UI — itself flagged up by the cheeky name Peek.

Pharrell Williams’ Hat at the 2014 Grammys an Arby’s endorsement?

Someone please give Arby’s social media guy a raise! Pharrell chose to wear a bit of a conversation piece to the 2014 Grammys last night – a Vivienne Westwood Smokey-the-Bear-esque hat.

Arby’s capitalized on the uncanny resemblance Pharrell’s hat to its own logo with the hilarious tweet below:

Brands like Pepsi and Hyundai quickly raised flags of approvals. It’s fair to say that we all love Pharrell with all of his genius but hate the hat.

Put.. the phone… DOWN! Live a little.

All this technology is truthfully ruining our social lives. Drop your phones and have a good conversation face-to-face, enjoy a concert upfront & personal, go out to eat without posting your status, anything to regain a sense of being ‘human.’ It feels good.
