  • 0 Blowing Cigarette Smoke During A Pandemic

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, some smokers have increased their use of cigarettes while others have quit. New research published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine and conducted by investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine reveal this: Those who believed that smoking increases the risk of getting COVID-19 or having a more severe case were more likely to quit, while those who perceived more stress tended to increase their smoking. During the pandemic, 32% of respondents in this research study increased their smoking, 37% decreased their smoking, and 31% made no change. While 63% of the people followed in this survey puffed away harder, or made no change, 37% may be leaning toward quitting. Our Quit Smoking Audiobook supports you and the 37% who trend toward cutting cigarette consumption. We all need strong lungs for optimal breathing. Nothing to impede a breath of fresh air makes sense. Learn more about the Quit Smoking Audiobook:

  • 0 Android vs iOS Joy And Pain

    During a recent virtual summit I attended, all of the presenters were asked for their favorite: iOS or Android? I did not present. Like lemmings jumping into the ocean waters off a cliff, one by one each presenter answered iOS. Our first computer experience was with an early Mac. We then moved on to Windows PC's. Today, we have four iPhones: 4, 6, 7, and X, plus an iPad along with a Motorola phone and a Samsung phone representing for Android. Let's not forget a MacBook Pro, iMac, and multiple Windows desktop and laptops machines around various workspaces at Quikthinking headquarters. We are not tech crazy, but the mobile devices are used to test our apps before submitting them to the app stores. We don't want to disappoint you! Frankly, I'm always surprised in a world where approximately 85 percent of mobile phone users have Android, in the USA few seem to admit that they actually prefer Android. Score one for the iOS cool kids. Here's my advice to you if I was starting over today to develop software apps. I started with Android ten years ago. See our Timeline. Learning to program with the Android tools available in 2011 was financially more accessible for those with limited budgets. iOS required not only a bigger bankroll, but a longer learning curve to tackle their Objective-C programming language for apps. Today Swift leaves Objective-C behind as the programming language of choice for Apple apps. Swift offers an enhanced ease of use and improved features. Submitting apps to Google and Amazon was much more straight forward in 2011. At that time acceptance in the App store (iOS) had lots of challenges although they have improved their review systems. By 2018 our first app submission to Apple was accepted on the very first try. What did we learn in the 7 years between 2011 - 2018? Creating reliable software isn't easy, but with a good attitude to learn along with a system to improve and grow anything is possible. Personally, I'm always slowed down by the endless requests made by the iOS devices badgering you to supply permission to do little things on the devices. Yes, it's a security thing, but I like the rugged individualism of Android gear that leaves much more freedom of choice in your own hands. If you start with Android and then migrate to iOS, you won't be disappointed. You should definitely learn both. Today we have solid in-house knowledge of both operating systems. So, when it come to a question of Android or iOS, I proudly say Android. My very first Android phone cost only $25 dollars and it worked great! We hope you enjoyed the image of robots with apples on their antennas! It's one big beautiful world!

  • 0 Creating Black History People With A Plan

    When we created Empower Encyclopedia CD-ROM for Windows in 1998, the Black History software that became the root of many of our apps, we did it the old fashioned way. How? By going to our county library between 1993 - 1998 using books to do the research and reading through original sources. No Wikipedia, no online sources, no social media, no shortcuts. You may be thinking that a complicated project in your life is too hard to tackle. Breaking down the task into component parts is an easy way to simplify the complex. So rather than worrying about the herculean task of completing a project, we just did a little at a time without pressuring ourselves to meet self imposed deadlines. This may not be possible for you, but... In the case of the app Black History People, the sketch on the left below was the original hand drawn storyboard prototype. The screen shot below on the right is the first screen of the app as it appears as of this writing.     So create a plan and use it.
