03/14/2021 Text and Dine: How Texting Can Improve the Restaurant Industry

We often think of going out to eat as an almost sacred ritual, free from the distracting reach of our mobile devices: an occasion about enjoying food and the company of friends and family face-to-face. While these values still hold, texting seems to be gaining more and more of a role in dining out, especially for the restaurants themselves. SMS is beginning to take root as a way to facilitate the workings of restaurants in a myriad of exciting new ways.

Text messaging offers a myriad of ways to boost the hospitality industry, and hotels are bound to take note sooner rather than later.

However, texting may offer a solution.

At first glance, it may not make much sense that rounding up participants for research trials would present such an obstacle.

When living with diabetes, diligent self-care is essential, and at times overwhelming. The demands of self-awareness and self-care can be exhausting, or simply easy to forget about at times, but a lapse can be dangerous for diabetics. In an effort to make keeping on top of the daily responsibilities of diabetes easier, researchers have begun to explore how texting might be used to lighten this load and improve the health of diabetics.

Researchers at the University of Chicago Medicine have launched a program called CareSmarts that aims to help those living with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes keep on top of their daily responsibilities to stay healthy. CareSmarts relies on texting to do this, as it is an instant, convenient, and widely popular medium of communication that is gaining even more footing across age groups.

Mobile technology is not new to health developments--cell phones have been put to task in an impressive range of technologies to improve public health.

In fact, texting may have a variety of surprising implications for the world of health and medicine.

04/12/2021 Web API - Web Server and CGI Interface - GetWeb

Send text messages via webpages. The PageGate Web API allows clients to dispatch messages from a webpage on their webserver. PageGate's web interface supports many types of web pages including single, group, multi-page, drop down lists and ad-hoc type web pages. The web pages can be set up using templates.

The Web Interface uses a CGI script to allow any Windows based web server to accept information entered on a web page and send it to PageGate. PageGate then sends the message out via text message.

Web Developers can use the Web Server Interface to send messages to PageGate from their webpages (HTML, ASP, JavaScript, Java, etc.).  

The CGI can be used with either a POST or GET method.

The POST method can be used by creating a form on your webpage. Information submitted in the form can be sent out as a text message.

The GET method is more popular with scripting languages such as JavaScript and Java.  It allows the CGI to be called with a command similar to one that could be entered into a browser's URL field.

The Web interface can also be used to enable PageGate to receive notifications from applications running on different platforms.

02/22/2021 How to Dispose of Old Cell Phones

Whether your cell phone has a broken screen, is no longer the latest technology, or you are simply itching for the latest cell phone model, it is important that you take appropriate care in disposing of your old cell phone.

Retain and Protect Your Data
Cell phones are a treasure trove of information; think of the panic that strikes each time you mistakenly misplace your cell phone. The information contained in our cell phones is meaningful and it is important that you backup any data on the phone that you wish to retain. The data you backup would include: any music, photos, messages etc...  If you are moving to a new cell phone you can often transfer the data you wish to retain to the new cell device.

Protect Your Personal Information
Cell phones often contain sensitive personal data, including passwords, bank information, payment methods, messages, contacts, videos, account numbers and much more. After transferring the data to a new device, information is still retained on your original cell phone.  Providing this type of sensitive information to strangers could put you at risk for identity theft, other other types of fraud, or simply leave you very uncomfortable.

02/19/2021 Cell Phone Etiquette

Todays society is all about being connected 24/7. Cell phones now provide instant access to anyone and everyone, from corporate executives to housewives and children alike. While cellular connectivity is a comfort to some, it can be rude and disruptive to others. You may wish to be available at all times, but there are some times when it is simply not appropriate to use your cell phone.

Also, cell phones should not be treated as status symbols, and should not be paraded out simply to impress others. Regardless of how new and impressive your cell phone may be, dragging it out in a public setting is seldom going to win you any fans.
