Blockboard gives people a simple way to commune with their neighbours about everything starting from local news to any other things that could be helpful.

Apart from these features, BlockBoard has a nice developer team that could easily come up with a killer mobile application at any point in time without delay.

Adding the Blockboard team of experts to the existing Klout family will surely bring about the existence of a non-ending social media influence tracking with no fuss.

I hereby congratulate the Klout team for this wonderful take-over process and pray that it will bring about the good for the company and not like that of a failed move by Google in acquiring Apture with no development since then.

Ciccarese’s design of the iPhone 5 shows us that the phone is going to come with a slightly curved back side.

The phone’s body looks very similar to the Apple’s Magic Mouse which comes with the iMac.

The device display according to the mock-up is very flat and it is “retina” in nature as we saw it, and not only that, it also have phone tapers off at its top and bottom side.

Telephone Conferencing as the Fast Food Approach to Communications

In the modern business world, standard meetings are sometimes less structured events as they are emergency necessities. In a fast-paced field, the need to get parties together quickly to iron out pieces of a deal may require telephone conferencing in order to successfully reach an agreement. Or, portions of a complicated project may require minute adjustments in a short timeframe, which requires some communication between participants who are remotely stationed.

Teleconferencing as come to the rescue to make a quick and dirty virtual meeting a reality for such situations.

Telephone conferencing can bring people together from across the globe on a dime, or very quickly compared to the logistics of the traditional staff or organization meeting. For this reason, some call it the ‘fast food’ of modern business communication. This type of business connectivity can be as formal or informal as the case requires, and not all participants need to be engaged equally in the proceedings. If an executive who’s vacationing on the golf course has to be contacted, for example, that party’s ‘attendance’ on the call may be limited to certain items requiring approval or verification by the officer, who can then get off the call and back to putting.

Telephone conferencing as the next communication means

The flexibility of the format, in other words, can eliminate the necessity for physical contact in most cases, and in an emergency, the necessity of all the arrangements that go with in person settings.

There is no costly meeting space, video presentations, handout materials, etc. have to be introduced in order to hold productive calls via telephone conferencing. Such extras are probably a hindrance in the case of an emergency conference, because it may bog down the pace of home it to solve the direct issue we discussed.

This kind of communication works for both internal relations and external, goodwill sessions with suppliers, consumers, and peers in the industry. The fact that one of its great advantages is the speed with which it can be created, some online based companies have opted to utilize telephone conferencing as its main mode of regular staff communication. In light of the rise in complexity and pace with which organizations must make decisions, conference calls might be the “fast food” method of connecting for many more companies in the near future.
