Period Emoji

Every year, we get more and more emoji added to our iPhones and Android phones. They’re more diverse and politically correct than ever, and that’s not a bad thing. That’s why a period emoji, no matter how uncomfortable it may sound to some people, is a good idea.

It’ll be a while before any of the proposed images ever make into your emoji keyboard, but charities including Plan International UK and Plan Australia are already working on a campaign to create the emoji.

Trump officials may be about to bring the hammer down on Facebook and other tech giants

Trump Regulating Facebook Google

As if Facebook didn’t have enough to worry about, now we have word the Trump administration is working behind the scenes on potential legislation to better protect consumer privacy on the Internet. And that Commerce Dept. officials have been meeting with tech giants like Facebook and Google, as well as such Internet providers as AT&T, ahead of moving forward on any proposal.

The goal appears to be to craft a set of principles for how companies should collect and handle private consumer information, according to reporting from The Washington Post. Which, of course, goes right to the core of how Facebook and Google operate and gives them plenty reason to worry about the direction that the first comprehensive online privacy law could take, should such a thing materialize.

3 Tech Tips to Help You Move

Relocating for business can be a massive hassle, especially if your current company isn’t involved in expenses or execution. Here are three tips that will make your transition much more seamless.

3 Tips on How to Relocate

Credit

Having a great score is a must. Make sure that your credit score is fully intact before you move. Try to get it as high as possible. Any high credit card balances? Pay them down. Any outstanding loans, make sure they are up to date. Pull your own records and do a check. Credit Karma is one service that can help. They give you a breakdown of everything that is going on and even suggests ways to fix any mishaps or consolidate any loans. Don’t wait for your new place to pull your score. By then it’s too late.

If you see anything out of the ordinary, feel free to dispute it. There are companies like eMillions+ that will do that for you for a reasonable price if you aren’t familiar with how to do it on your own. In the end, your credit means everything to your move; it will determine the amount of your deposits, both for your apartment and utilities and even if you get the place that you are eyeing.

Apartment Scouting 

When you are looking for a new place, you want to be extremely diligent. It’s very difficult if the place is somewhere across the country and you don’t have access to see it beforehand. Apartment List is a platform that allows you to input all of your living/home workspace criteria and shows you the best matches in your desired location. It’s also extremely visual, providing you with pictures and layouts of the location.

Once you’ve found several matches that fit your standards, call the location and ask the property manager to do a virtual tour for you or check the site to see if a virtual tour is already set up. Additionally, you can also check apartment ratings through Yelp or Google to see how other tenants have rated the apartment, home, and surrounding community.

Shipping

When you are ready to ship your items consider using a marketplace. It is much cheaper. uShip is a platform that allows you to upload the items that you want to be delivered and movers to bid on your shipment. This will save you lots of time and money, giving you peace of mind because the platform allows you to see the mover’s ratings and what they’ve delivered in the past.

Outdated Tech? 8 Ways to Rescue Your Old Data from Old Devices

The computer revolution is already a few generations old, and in all that time we’ve seen many technologies fall by the wayside as innovative, more efficient devices and file storage solutions moved in to take their place. Today’s computers, cameras, and flash drives with their superior processing power, versatility, and storage capacity have left in their wake a host of obsolete hard drives, memory cards, and cassettes. You’d be hard-pressed to open any files stored on these outdated media on one of today’s devices. But don’t despair: That old data isn’t necessarily lost forever. With a bit of sleuthing and persistence, you can recover files from old formats. Take care, though. If you attempt to recover on your own any data that is truly irreplaceable, such as photos of your child’s first birthday, a long-lost recording of your high school garage band, or videotaped messages from your wedding guests, you could unwittingly damage or destroy it beyond hope of retrieval. For your most precious and prized mementos, turn the original storage media over to a reputable professional restoration service.

Here’s An Opportunity to Invest in a Promising Tech Startup

There was once a time where you wouldn’t be able to get in on the ground floor of an early-stage company because those perks were reserved for accredited investors. Well, times have changed. Now, with equity crowdfunding, you can invest in companies that already have traction, and the due diligence is done for you. One standout that is currently raising is Whose Your Landlord, a startup we’ve previously covered.

Ofo Ezeugwu, the founder and CEO of Whose Your Landlord, saw a problem in the market when it came to tenants understanding who they were actually renting from. He solved it by creating a platform that provides aggregated data from both current and previous tenants that consists of reviews and a rating system.

The company attempted to raise on SeedInvest with a threshold of $ 125,000. They hit $ 64,000 coming up short of their goal. Having scaled and grown the company from the previous raise, they are back at it again on Republic with a goal of $ 50,000, which they feel confident that they will reach.

“We had several investors at the last minute that could have gotten us across that finish line but it was too rushed,” Ezeugwu told Black Enterprise. “Because it was such a public raise, all of our stats went up. We’re in the prime position to raise capital now as a result of us trying to raise capital before.”

If you are interested in investing in Whose Your Landlord there are a couple of general points that you should know. Investments are not a quick flip. It takes time for them to convert into actual equity and sometimes that’s years out. Additionally, the company may fail and they may never convert at all, so keep that in mind.

With Crowd SAFE, the instrument that the equity crowdfunding platform uses, you do not have equity in the company until the company actually converts it into such. Until then, you have a SAFE which is essentially saying that you have the opportunity for your investment to convert to equity.

According to the site, if the company gets acquired or has an IPO at a valuation higher than the one at the time of your investment, you will earn a return. Additionally, if the company has another financing round, it can decide to issue Shadow Shares to you, with economic rights that provide a return.

This Is What the Future of Fashion Tech Looks Like

Whether it’s the latest smartwatch, “smart” wearables, or new portable charging concepts, it feels like we’re constantly inundated with the latest products claiming to revolutionize the way we connect with technology. In the fashion world, we’re generally increasing our tech savvy while on the tech side of the industry, innovations are ever more developed with fashion and style in mind. If you’re already on the forefront of the tech sphere, you might have an idea of what will come next. To find out exactly what the future of fashion tech holds, we went straight to the source of the newest product releases.

CES is a conference produced by the Consumer Technology Association and is at the forefront of innovation in the consumer products space. The conference “has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years,” reads the CES website, “the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.” So, naturally, this was where we looked for the most exciting developments in fashion tech.

What we saw was a major trend in activewear designed with the technology to monitor data like heart-rate levels during a workout. Whether thanks to an external accessory like Spire or built-in garment features à la Xenoma, workouts will never be the same after these products are introduced to the market. Alongside innovations in activewear, we saw name brands like Kate Spade New York and Fossil introducing smartwatches to their collections, making these wearables chicer than ever, and even a line of purses that come with built-in phone chargers so you never have to worry about carrying a heavy portable with you again. Curious to know what else is in store in the near future? We’re breaking down every cool fashion product we saw at the conference below.

Xenoma’s E-Skin activewear tops come with 14-strain sensor strategically built into the shirt to monitor movement like bending, stretching, and twisting joints, meaning the data it collects is a major step forward from fitness-tracking bracelets. Plus, it’s designed to be machine washable for everyday use. Simply put: Workouts will never be the same.
Easily attached to the sleeves, waistbands, or collars of your garments, this wearable accessory syncs with your mind and body by measuring your breath all day and alerting you to sudden changes.
Sleek design and Italian craftsmanship come together in Smartline Jewelry’s Electio hybrid bracelet. The buttons and LED lights subtly blend into the band while the battery and Bluetooth antenna are tailored to integrate into the design, tracking your health and activity in the chicest way possible. This product hasn’t hit the market just yet, but we’re waiting patiently until the moment we can get one of these stylish bracelets on our wrists.
The Fossil-designed shell features a touchscreen powered by Android Wear 2.0, which keeps track of every facet of daily activity from steps to calories and connects with Android and iPhone devices. In gold and rose gold, the chain-link design has a classic feel.
With a crystal dial and star-studded mother-of-pearl face, Kate Spade New York’s hybrid watch is Bluetooth enabled to track activity and sleep, connecting to your iPhone or Android device.
In a structured design with classic hardware, Mighty Purse’s top-handle bag is a perfect choice for women on the go, featuring a concealed slimline battery to charge your micro-USB smartphone or iPhone. Plus, you can also shop the rest of the portable charging bags, clutches, and pouches in the collection.
While these sneakers’ LED soles catch your eye, their built-in motion sensor works to detect movement. It gathers and analyzes your health data in real time. By connecting to your smartphone and computer, Orphe may turn into a musical instrument and controller as well. Now here’s a sneaker that does it all. Opening Image: Style du Monde

Sports Tech Veteran Damon Phillips Named GM of NBC Sports

NBC Sports Regional Networks has appointed Damon Phillips as the new General Manager of NBC Sports Washington. The sports media veteran previously worked at ESPN in various executive level roles for the last 10 years. Most recently, he served as ESPN’s Vice Technical President, Product Management.

“I took this role because I wanted to be a part of something special, and I truly believe we have the opportunity to create the regional sports network of the future with NBC Sports Washington,” Phillips told Black Enterprise in an email.

The announcement was made last week by Ted Griggs, the President and Group and Strategic Production & Programming Leader at NBC Sports Regional Networks. “Damon has a deep understanding of the sports business and a strong background across all media platforms,” said Griggs in a press release. “His expertise and strong leadership qualities make him the perfect leader to advance our growth in this important market.”

With his new position, Phillips will oversee the network, which is the official broadcaster for the NHL’s Washington Capitals, NBA’s Washington Wizards, NFL’s Washington Redskins, and ACC. He will also serve as the network’s liaison with Monumental Sports Network to help identify business opportunities to grow both networks and work in unison. He will report directly to Griggs.

During his time as VP of Technical Product Management, Phillips provided strategic counsel to company leaders on ways to leverage technology to enhance content, operations, and monetization efforts. He also played a significant role in building ESPN’s live video streaming mobile coverage and tech devices while serving as VP of ESPN3 and WatchESPN. “He was a driving force behind ESPN’s first direct-to-consumer video product during the Cricket World Cup as VP of Digital Direct to Consumer Services,” reads the release.

In addition to working for ESPN, Phillips has over 20 years of experience working with sports programming, operation, and marketing. He has held roles at USA Football, DirectTV, Disney Regional Entertainment, and the NBA. He earned a B.A. from Stanford University on a football scholarship and graduated with honors.
