RIM Doesn’t Need BlackBerry 10 — It Needs a Time Machine
By Peter PachalOn Mashable
The business customer has evolved. The new species is much less tolerant of carrying two devices. It’s spent quality time with both the iPhone and Android handsets, and its pack leaders (read: executives) are quite partial to them. Finally, re-training the entire tribe on a new operating system like BlackBerry 10 just seems like a waste of time when everybody already knows how to use other platforms that are just as good if not better in many ways.

Who's Your Favourite? (Baby vs Parent)Who's Your Favourite?
It's Maddie vs Daddy as I interrogate my baby daughter to reveal her favourite parent. What takes place is a ruthless contest of cunning and skill... with one of us clearly out of our league.
G'day everyone! There have been a lot of questions about how this video came to be, so for those of you interested, here's the brief. I shot this on the eve of my daughter Maddie's first birthday. My wife had originally asked me to put together a photo montage of baby's first year (yes, I'm 'that guy' in our family) but I settled on doing an interview instead. The original idea was to conduct one every birthday as a sort of year in review to have as a digital keepsake. I just hope she gets better at taking direction when she's older...
As a final note, my wife and I are completely overwhelmed with the reception of this video. Thank you to all who offered kind words and I'm glad so many of you have found a smile, laugh or warm, fuzzy feeling through watching it. She delights us every day and I'm thrilled to know I'm not the only one who fell in love upon meeting her for the first time. Even if I'm not her favourite.
Optimize Your Videos For YouTubeFriday, November 04, 2011
One of the most popular search engines online today was actually started created by three former PayPal employees back in February 2005. It’s not Google, Yahoo, or Bing – it’s YouTube. The site attracts countless viewers every day and is considered to be the largest video based website on the Internet.
Developing and promoting videos is a great way to generate traffic and promote your products, services, and special offers. The question everyone wants answered is how to get your videos ranked high on YouTube and even appear in organic search results too. The good news is that by following a few basic optimization principles, you can quickly and easily optimize your videos for YouTube.
Let’s start with some basic YouTube ranking factors. This search engine works differently than other search algorithms. From my experience, where you appear on the platform and in relation to specific search queries depends on a few factors.
1. Relevancy. Metadata is exceptionally important on YouTube because of the search algorithm itself as well as the role that related videos play as part of the overall video viewing experience. Your video title, description, keywords, etc. are heavily weighed as part of search queries.
2. Ratings. YouTube, just like Amazon, puts a lot of weight on user ratings. The rating and quantity of reviews indicates the viewer’s approval of your video and tells the search algorithm that your video is ideal to promote to the rest of the YouTube universe.
3. Responses. YouTube is also very interested in the comments and responses that others are making. When individuals take the time to submit video responses in addition to comments, YouTube gauges the additional interest as a key indicator of popularity, thus moving your video higher and higher in search results.
When you produce your video, keep your video length longer than one and a half minutes but shorter than eight minutes. Videos that seem to rank well both on YouTube and organically follow this general rule of thumb with regard to length. Also, be sure to speak clearly when producing your video, using keywords in the first 10 seconds of the video and last 10 seconds of the video. It’s believed that Google is actually indexing some of your audio.
Title your video like you would a pay-per-click ad. You want users to click through on your title to improve interactivity and views. It's certainly believed that having a strong title and good click-through-rate can boost the rankings of your video.
When creating your title, include your most important keywords at the beginning of the title and keep the title brief. The shorter the title the more weight you're giving to your keyword phrases. However, you want the title to be powerful enough to encourage clicks. Remember to use your keywords first, branding last, and encourage click-throughs.
When creating your description, again, be sure to use your keywords in the beginning. You definitely have more room than you did in your title or even on conventional search engines to describe your video. Keep in mind that you can use the description to include information about your video in general and provide specific info on products or services.
I always like to place a URL to a site I’d like to promote at the very beginning of my YouTube video description. This ensures that the URL is visible and clickable next to your video. It’s a great way to promote third-party sites, passing authority and link juice of significant proportion.
One of the best ways to optimize your tags is to again begin with your chosen keyword phrase. The second step is to do some research in the channel that your video will likely fit into. What types of tags are being used by the top ranking videos? You should integrate some of the same tags into the tags associate with your video to ensure a good ranking among similar videos that have already been posted.
Just the Beginning
Optimizing just a few features on YouTube such as the video itself, title, description, and video tags is a good starting point for improving the ranking of your videos. There are a variety of additional techniques to further optimize videos for YouTube that deal more closely with the social aspect of the video site itself. Views, reviews, etc. are all significant factors designed to manipulate video rankings on YouTube. I’ll be sure to cover these additional factors in future posts.
