                         Honda reveals new F6C




Way back in 2007 Honda showed the EVO6 Concept and it looked amazing; six years later the Honda F6C is the production version of that bike and was unveiled today (Wednesday) at the Tokyo show in Japan.

The Honda Goldwing F6C is another clever bit of work by Honda by taking an existing engine and chassis and making a new bike that keeps all of the most expensive elements untouched. The F6C joins the fully-dressed Goldwing and the F6B (for Bagger) which was launched a year ago; all sharing the same 1832cc GL1800 six-cylinder motor. 

Honda claims the F6C ‘injects a jolt of adrenaline into the power cruiser arena’ and the styling of the bike in this stripped-back way certainly backs up the hyperbole. The firm says the new F6C will provide ‘a bridge between the new Honda CTX1300 (launched two weeks ago) and the Gold Wing F6B and the GL1800’. However, with a 341kg kerbweight,  the 113bhp and 123ftlbs of torque are not going to translate into Ducati Diavel or Yamaha VMax-worrying performance, although it will make for a torquey ride.

Changes over the standard Goldwing include the new styling, stripped back bodywork, a new aluminium subframe, reshaped seat, modified steering geometry (raked out) for stability, and adjusted front/rear weight bias to achieve an almost equal loading (50.1 front, 49.1 rear). The F6C has a new 19-inch front wheel, fitted with Dunlop Sportmax 130/60 R19 front tyre combined with a 17-inch rear wheel and 180/55 R17 tyre. The bike also now sports side-mounted radiators, hidden within the side cowling instead of front-mounted as on the GL1800.





Honda says more than 10 exhaust systems were made during the development of the bike as the firm wanted to find the right balance of noise and performance to suit the more aggressive nature of the bike.

                       10 Social Media Marketing 



Increase Your Following By Avoiding These Blunders
Social media marketing holds incredible power in today’s business climate. It’s not only a platform that hosts conversations for friends, family, and old acquaintances – it has become our central hub of information for personal and professional use. Most people have a general idea how social media works; however, few have a comprehensive understanding of the type of mistakes that can be made.
Check out these 10 tips to get a better handle on your social media efforts, maintain that audience you’ve worked so hard to build, and avoid these common blunders!
10 Mistakes to Avoid
1. Failing to Post
Posting irregularly or once or twice a week typically isn’t enough to stay on the minds of your audience so that you’ll be their primary source in their time of need. Regularly provide them with content that meets their needs and interests (content they can identify with or even rally against), rather than bombarding them with non-benefit driven promotions.
2. Putting Them on Hold
Not responding to audience inquiries or relevant comments is a HUGE mistake. The reason is quite obvious: a response is a fundamental customer service expectation. If a customer calls your place of business with an inquiry, you know their tolerance for being put on hold is very low. Don’t put your followers on hold. Be proactive by responding to your social media followers’ inquiries both on and off your page to make a connection with your audience.

3. Lack of Creativity
Competition is fierce. To survive, you must go beyond the norm and innovate or risk becoming obsolete. Be creative – grab your audience’s attention through humor, shock, motivation, and even give them an offer they can’t refuse. Give them a chance to ask the right questions, shock and awe them, and surprise them with something unique.
4. Not Watching Your Competitors
You’re off to a good start by reading this post, but it’s important to be mindful of what your competition is doing. Nearly everyone has adopted social media as a marketing weapon, so educating yourself on what “the other guy” is cooking up will help you generate ideas and innovate for your own success. Take good notes on what is working for them or looks appealing, and brainstorm some ideas of your own original content that will wow audiences even more.
5. Taking Negative Feedback Too Seriously
It’s safe to say most people don’t look forward to negative comments or feedback, whether in person or in writing. In social media, this can get out of hand because people have the advantage of speaking freely without penalty or posting anonymously, so they have no reason to hold back. It’s important to focus on the “quality feedback” and constructive criticism, not just honing in on the negative and acting out. Feedback will help discover weak links and create opportunities.
6. Too Much Involvement
Good promotion entails advertising to the right crowd, at the right time, and without pushing their “off” buttons. Think about your favorite TV commercials you have enjoyed watching. Would you still have respect for the product being advertised if the same commercial was advertised every 5 minutes? Too much of anything can harm your business. Be original and have adequate timing to avoid annoying your customers.
7. Isolated in One Department
Marketing in only one department limits the multi-functional role that it can have on your business. Different agencies that are the most useful are: advertising, media buying, web development, SEO, PR and customer experience. This should be shared across your company so competitors and customers know you mean business, and see you aren’t limited to strictly 1 area of a marketing push. Get out of your comfort zone and try something new. This will help you in the long run and will help you establish a clear and varied road map for success.
8. Not Understanding Your Platform
You have to figure out what type of social network fits you and your business. For some companies with limited time to dedicate to social media marketing, it can be frustrating to try to keep up with every hot new social media platform available. Use the platforms your audience is most active on to avoid wasting time as well as have clear goals and a solid content strategy for each platform.
9. Ignoring Data
Having a goal and understanding what you’re doing on social media sites is one thing, but keeping track of everything you’re doing is equally important. Every click, like, new follower, article read or purchase can and should be tracked for your own benefit. Research the best ways to track and use this data so you can stay competitive and know what strategies are working. Sites like Hubspot have amazing tools to track how successful different social media platforms are and can recommend changes for your business.
10. Paying for Your Fanbase
You’ll get about as much engagement out of a stone as you will by buying followers. Not only that, but it will jeopardize your account as more social media pages are taking action against unnatural practices. As long as you follow the above tips in social media marketing, you will never have to resort to “cheating” tactics like paying for fans, likes, views or any other campaign that will increase your fanbase.

                                      Easy-Macro Universal Smart Phone Lens Band



So you think that your smartphone’s camera is pretty snazzy, and the only thing limiting you from taking even better photos are because of the hardware, and nothing to do with improving your skill? Assuming you take that line of thought and follow it all the way to the end, perhaps it is time to sit down and take stock of the situation. Times are hard, many countries are going through various austerity measures, so what happens when you feel that itch to upgrade your handset to a newer device simply because the more recent model has a better camera? Take a deep breath and do not make any harsh decisions. The $14.99 Easy-Macro Universal Smart Phone Lens Band might be able to give your smartphone photo-taking sessions a new breath of life, as it functions as a macro add-on lens for smartphones.
This would mean you can now use your current smartphone to snap remarkably detailed close-up pictures, and this particular design is so simple, you can slip it on or off in a jiffy. The amount of magnification stands at 4x, and it does seem to shape up to be worthy of hobbyist photographers and Instagram fanatics. Not only that, thanks to the relatively small form factor, you can stash it away in your wallet or purse without missing a beat.

                  How to become successful in affiliate marketing



We have already had an article on simple solutions on how to make it in the world of affiliate marketing and we told you that there is no single solution for this. No matter how successful the person trying to sell you their quick-fix scheme, you can rest assured that it will not get you far. However, there are a few, common sense things that you should keep in mind if you want to become successful in affiliate marketing and we will share them with you in this article.
First of all, you need to learn as much about it as you humanly can and try and apply your knowledge to everything that you do. For someone who has just got into affiliate marketing, it may seem that there is not that much to learn about this industry and that it mostly has to do with trying and either succeeding and failing. And while this is to some extent true, there is still a lot that can be learned and researched before you apply it. You can find gigabytes of info on affiliate marketing, from proposed techniques, to some basic tools and so on. You need to research this at least to some extent before you dive into it all.
You also need to be organized and we do not mean just knowing how to manage your time. While this is extremely important, there are other things that need to be organized properly and successfully in order to do the best affiliate marketing you can. For one, you always need to make sure that you will deliver on time and to deliver what you said that you will deliver. If the job you got involves four websites in 15 days, then you need to get around to making four websites in 15 days. Not in 16 days and not 3 websites. Your clients and especially your potential clients need to know that they can count on you.
You should also know when to quit. There are people who do affiliate marketing and who are not capable of seeing a failed campaign for what it is. They stick with it and put time and effort in it even if it is doomed to fail. This is something you need to avoid and concentrate only on those jobs that you can convert on and that can make you money. Of course, we are not saying that you should breach any contracts or anything, but if you have the choice to give up on a campaign that shows no results, do it.

Sony 3-In-1 Walkman 0

                        Sony 3-In-1 Walkman 





Sony‘s ubiquitous Walkman has come a long way since its initial introduction in Japan in 1979. From its humble beginnings as the TPS-L2 cassette player more than three decades ago, the Walkman now finds itself as a 3-in-1 digital music player/headphones-speaker design courtesy of Sony’s Walkman WH Series. The comfy over-ear designs offer either 30mm or 40mm dome type headphone driver units along with built-in stereo surround sound speakers that can be activated with the flip of a switch.

Sony has just recently revealed its new 3-in-1 Walkman Headphones. Seeing as I only associate ‘walkman’ with a portable cassette player, the idea of what they might provide nowadays was intriguing. There are two different models, and both are capable of being an MP3 player, headphones, and speakers.
The NWZ-WH505 is the ‘bigger and better’ option that will give you 16GB of storage (about 4,000 songs), 40mm drivers, and is supposed to have an LED backlit logo. The WH303 offers a fourth of the storage at 4GB, and the drivers are 30mm. This will also have the backlighting for the logo, and both are capable of running for 20 hours on one charge. If you’re in a rush, you can get one hour of play time from a 3 minute charge. Their pricing is not available at the moment, but given the timing of releasing this information, you can expect that we’ll know more in the coming weeks, and see it available before the end of the year.

 Compatible with both Mac and Windows, the built-in music player offers storage for up to 4,000 tracks and supports a wide range of formats including MP3, WMA, AAC-LC and Linear PCM. Offered in a 4GB NWZ-WH303 version as well as a 16GB NWZ-WH505, Sony’s Walkman WH Series looks to be available in the near future although exact pricing and availability remain unknown.

Voice operation

The built-in speaker allows users to conduct hands-free calls directly from the Gear, maintaining connections to their mobile communications without disrupting their daily routines.

Users can also draft messages, create new calendar entries, set alarms, and check the weather on the GALAXY Gear with S Voice.

Capture daily life from your wrist

In addition to enabling smart device controls, Samsung GALAXY Gear introduces several features that help users easily capture life’s meaningful moments which otherwise might be missed. With the Memographer feature, a 1.9 Megapixel camera, users who are on the move or participating in physical activities can record both photos and video to create quick, visual records of important information or events from their daily lives, as well as share them on their social networks. Extending the quick-record concept, Voice Memo lets users capture important thoughts or conversations from their wrists and save those voice recordings into texts on their Samsung GALAXY devices.

A growing list of controls for favorite features

With the GALAXY Gear, users gain a wide range of favorite features that further increase the benefits of this new accessory. New security enhancement Auto Lock automatically secures the companion smartphone screen any time that GALAXY Gear is more than 1.5 meters away from the smartphone, and then unlocks the smartphone when the companion devices are near each other again. Find My Device helps users find the location of their smart devices when they have been misplaced by making them beep, illuminate and vibrate. With Samsung GALAXY Gear, users can also control the music played on their Samsung GALAXY devices. As with traditional music players, it helps users browse, play and pause songs even when their smart device is not within reach. Finally, the GALAXY Gear also works like a Pedometer to track physical activity via enhanced, built-in sensor technology. This feature systematically and automatically monitors users so they can track key personal data such as calories burned, steps taken and distance covered.

Standalone Watch and Iconic Fashion Accessory
