Farm-r - The Farmer to Farmer Rental Service

by: Startacus Admin ~ 23rd October 2017
Farming is not an easy life, nor often a lucrative one. Machinery and equipment can be hugely expensive, and return on investment comes very slowly. Worse is when a farmer only needs a particular piece of equipment temporarily. There are, of course, already places to rent the equipment, but what if a farmer could support another farmer while getting the use of the required equipment? Farm-r ...

Pointy offers local shops the chance to compete online

by: Startacus Admin ~ 1st October 2017
Search for any product online, and the first result or two (or three or four or five) is likely to be Amazon. As handy as Amazon can be for shopping, it and other online shopping megastores are proving disastrous for some small, local shops. Small businesses are closing their doors in record numbers, even after putting all of their products online to try to keep up with the times. At the end of t...

Diversity in Tech communities and platforms

by: Startacus Admin ~ 3rd September 2017
We recently had a feature about women in tech, and platforms, groups, and the like that support and advocate them. Diversity doesn’t end with a balance of men and women, however, so we decided to do another feature along the same lines, but a tad broader. Diversity is after all a broad thing, not to mention an important one, so, just as before, we have put together a list of sites, platforms...

Phrasee - innovation in emails

by: Startacus Admin ~ 27th August 2017
Phrasee - The AI technology that writes better subject lines and email copy than YOU!Artificial intelligence might not have your street smarts, but it thinks quicker than you, is more intelligent than you, and now may be better at writing emails than you, too. That’s if over 95% of recent tests are to be believed. We’re probably in the 5% though... Phrasee uses all sorts of clever stu...

Women in Tech communities and platforms of note

by: Startacus Admin ~ 20th August 2017
Even in this age of supposed enlightenment, a little authority and power, however minute, meaningless, or even imagined, can then go to people’s malfunctioning heads. Particularly in a still sadly female-deficient industry like tech, when these people are men, the result can be a hostile environment in which the women affected often feel they cannot say or do anything about it. Intelligent a...

Apple ARKit - a look at

by: Startacus Admin ~ 14th August 2017
We have written before about ways in which virtual reality will shape the future and only recently about the closely related augmented reality, in the shape of mobile game Safari Central. These are two sibling technologies that have been around for quite a long time, but are just now beginning to come into their own. The possibilities are exciting. But in order for designers and creators to make a...

Will a robot take your job? This website will tell you the % chance

by: Startacus Admin ~ 25th June 2017
Robots eh, it seems they will have a lot of explaining to do, when they have stolen all of our jobs. Or perhaps the robots that built the robots that stole all of our jobs, will have a lot of explaining to do....Or the robots that designed the robots, that built the robots….

REWIND< Are Cassette Tapes set for a Tech Renaissance?

by: Startacus Admin ~ 17th May 2017
Check out Elbow, a new cassette player concept, aimed at restoring the glory of the good ol’ fashioned cassette tape. If video killed the radio star, then CD killed the cassette, and MP3 the CD...(kinda). Ugh, you get what we mean. But nostalgia, on the other hand, doesn’t kill anything, but simply brings it back to life, reinvents it, and makes it current again. Step forward EL...
