Bit of a Surprise

If you purchased Bitcoin in April 2013 after it's parabolic rise to $240 per unit and subsequently dropped to under $100 within a day, hopefully you were patient and held on to your digital currencies. As of today, it appears that - at the very least - you will be able to break even on your investment, after all.

The chart displayed above shows the unit value of Bitcoin in the past year.  You can see the formation of an incredible bubble between March and early April.  At the time, the media helped to create a frenzy over Bitcoin, and everyone knew the bubble would have to "burst" at some point, but the question was always: "When?" Almost as soon as Bitcoin received national attention in the mainstream and even came out with its own debit card, it took a dive.

Full Speed Ahead! All posts restored at Tubeblogger.net...

Just a quick announcement of some good news for all of our readers.  A few weeks have passed since Nickolai Gibson's departure from Tubeblogger.net and it's been my pleasure to inherit such a unique blog with lot's of cool content, but quite the process to restore well over 500 posts to the blog.  That process is officially complete and you can now find all of your favorite posts from 2008 to 2013 (if you have any).  The next step is to restore all pages of Tube Blogger including the Guest Blog feature that some of you have inquired about.  I do not anticipate that will take nearly as long as it did to restore 500+ blog posts, so if you are waiting for an update regarding Guest Blogging, my advice is to keep checking back every day this week.

Funny Banned TV Commercials

Funny, Stupid and Banned TV Commercials part 1

Why were these TV commercials banned?
Perhaps it's the sexual innuendo, or alcohol references. Bud and Heineken seems to get into trouble a lot.
Check them out for yourself, the rest of the videos are below. Some of the videos might be blocked in your country, hopefully not banned from Youtube by the time you're reading this post, I noticed some music groups have added their copyright claim on these videos already.

The Internet Really Has Something for Everyone

Warning:  This post contains adult content.

As a 28 year old guy, one of the highlights of my childhood would have to be the breakthrough of the Internet, followed by Al Gore's proclamation that he had invented it. I remember when I downloaded a picture online for the very first time. It was during the 1992 World Cup and the United States had just pulled off a massive upset of Colombia and we wanted to see a picture from the game and we paid to download a very low quality image (by  today's standards, but remarkable for the time) and it took about an hour until the image was fully rendered.

Today, as I find myself in a very serious relationship, I search the Internet for all types of things that I'm thinking about in regards to my future and sometimes you come across things you weren't exactly expecting. For instance, did you know, there is a Pregnant Community forum online comprised of men that essentially worship pregnant women? But not just the magnificence of "life giving".  Oh no, they take it to the next level.  We are talking about full blown hardcore hardcore sexual content!  And from there I learn that at any given moment of the day, these guys can chat live via webcam with their choice of over 50 knocked up nellies from all over the world.

One Site to Download them All

There have been many online tools for downloading YouTube videos over the years.
Sadly many of them stop working after a while as they get shut down, probably by Google.

Planning An Online Video To Market Your Company Or Product

Online videos are big news in marketing right now. This is partly because everybody is aware of the phenomenon of the viral video and wants a slice of that action, and also because it is so accessible. You can create the kind of advert that would cost thousands to broadcast on TV and bring it to a highly targeted audience for no placement cost, and you can also be as creative and innovative as you want when it comes to the style of content you want to create, because the internet has no rules!

Can Augmented Reality Augment Digital Marketing?

Not quite virtual reality, but not wholly real either, augmented reality allows the user to have one foot in the physical world and one in the digital.

By bridging the two worlds via a camera-like device (webcam, smartphone camera, or special glasses), augmented reality enables the digital world contained on the device to react to whatever is perceived in the physical world, enhancing both the digital and real experience.
