Review - Pickapik for iOS

Turn fights over dinner options, choosing which outfit to wear, what to do on the weekend, or any myriad of things into a fun, democratic social activity with Picapik for iOS.

Pickapik by Risal Debs is a free, and fun, little iOS app. You may download it from the Apple App Store at no cost.

Pickapik is so simple to use that you could figure it out before you've finished reading this sentence. Want an opinion? Post a photo and ask your friends or family for a yes or no. Or, send up to four photos and get them to choose one.

Pickapik can revolutionise your life! Ok, I exaggerate, but the story about luminaries like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg is they wore the same outfits and had the same breakfasts so they could reserve their great brain power for more lofty decisions. So too you can stop agonising over what to have for dinner, what outfit to wear, what to do on the weekend, even which business strategy to adopt. Put it out to the vote with Pickapik and run with the crowd's popular choice.

I say this with some levity, but I believe it is also pretty true. Parents have the ability to present four - still healthy - meal options to their children and let the child feel they are exercising control over what they have for dinner. Women can get their partners to vote for their favourite outfit - well, ok, this still requires the lady to narrow her options down to four, but you get the gist.

Whatever your quandry, Pickapik can get your social network helping you with your critical decisions.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
