My First Facebook slap after BBC investigation Facebook likes

My First Facebook slap, I shared 2 videos and one picture today will we be limited to a number of daily postings or sharing by Facebook ? What is the next step? Well, they have to make money somehow, they were on BBC news last week about the fake likes on fan and business pages.  Could this be the beginning of basic and pro Facebook profiles?

We already know that  there are websites all over the web offering Facebook likes packages with prices ranging anything from $5 for a 100 likes to $500 for a 100,000 likes.  We can see that business page owners are prepared to pay for fake likes and apply to mislead real users by making them believe these  pages have a big following.  So, why wouldn’t the social network create a pro-membership?

This way, it would help fight the fake misleading of real followers that at the moment is like looking for a needle in a haystack.  We could be on verge of the biggest internet scandal yet.

What will be the future of the social network?

Appole iPad 3 review and hands on setup

The new iPad 3 review and hands on set-up.

I had to buy a new ipad for my 4 year old daughter for school  and so I thought I would do an ipad unboxing review and hands on set-up by avoiding any geek talk about specifications and only going through the basic set-up.
You can find all the tech details at the Amazon ipad 3 product description by clicking on this link
We have had the ipad now for a week. At first I started to call it the gigantic mobile phone but in fact it can be a very useful gadget in many ways, even though Apple targets the under age market the ipd 3 actually has all the basic apps which can be used by adults, including route planner, GPS, note reminders and many other features.

The battery life is also great, one overnight charge lasts the whole day, playing,  browsing the web, watching videos in real time, uploading photos. videos and more.
The ipad kickstand is also a great addition to view, type, go, and protect, it also turns the ipad on and off automatically, you can find more about the kickstand by clicking on this link
So, tablets pcs are the future for communications and I have to say I'm very impressed with the ipad 3's features and it's a must have gadget.

Alfie Boe at Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 2012

Alfie Boe at Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 2012

Went to see Alfie Boe last night, what a surprise. Expecting a night of opera, but instead we  had a nice mix of songs by the Eagles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Marley and we were sitting right behind Alfie Boe family. I met his mother, brother and other members of the family at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod 2012. Also, the VIP service was also one of the best I've had for a long time, the food was great and we were made to feel special by the staff, thanks to Val Bodden from the Royal Mail for inviting us.

However, on the way out of the Pavilion, we heard some people saying they preferred his more operatic performances.  Which shows, you can't please all of the people all of the time! Personally, I thought it was great to have a mix, including a rock 'n roll section which got everyone dancing.

Now, Alfie did mention in the first part of the show, he was trying out something new, that he would be doing in the second part of the show.

Which he did, and he got the 5,000 strong audience on their feet (most of them!), clapping and dancing.

What was particularly great, was that there were three choirs competing against each other before Alfie came on, and he invited them all back on stage with him for the rock n' roll medley. An unforgettable night for those youngsters and a great example to them.

Alfred Giovanni Roncalli Boe is the youngest of nine children, and hails originally from Blackpool in Lancashire.

At the age of 17, he became an apprentice mechanic at the TVR factory in Bispham, Blackpool where he was discovered by a client.  He enjoyed entertaining his fellow workmates with operatic arias and the client who overheard him suggested he go to London and audition for the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company. He did so, and was accepted, but has never been able to trace his Good Samaritan as he lost his business card.

The question is, should Alfie Boe stick to opera only or carry on mixing it and broadening his repertoire? Let me know your thoughts, I know which I prefer.
