Gone are the days when you needed a truckload of money to start an eCommerce venture. I’m not saying that you don’t need a huge amount of capital to start your own shop online. It all depends on the nature and volume of goods you deal with. But one variable of the equation has been tackled successfully over the years.
I’m referring to the availability of free, open and affordable ecommerce platforms that gets you going from day one. Whenever there is a new software platform is launched, developers first think how best they can convert it to an online shop. SaaS providers like Shopify have made the need for custom code totally unnecessary.

Enterprise software were never fun to use. For years, in the name of “professional looking”, a boring user interface was listed as most enterprise software’s major USP, it seemed. Microsoft Outlook remained as the path breaking collaboration (!) tool for decades. It ruled the roost until the another equally legendary social collaboration tool, Sharepoint, arrived. Slowly, very slowly, companies are embracing SaaS apps, but they are often not much better.
Everytime I use a leading project management and collaboration web app, I can’t fathom why such a clunky tool is used by millions. Naturally, I was skeptical when I heard about WorkSimple, which claims to be a social enterprise platform. To learn if WorkSimple wiped the doubtful smirk off my face or not, hit jump.

If you have been a consistent reader of Web.AppStorm, you know that there are some great applications out there for the web. There are many times that I wish a lot of these were actually on the desktop instead. Take for example, Pandora, I love using it, but there is not native desktop app for it. Well, about a year ago, I came across a solution that has been such a great way to enjoy them natively.
In this post, let me show you how to use Fluid, an application that changes a web page into a desktop like app. I don’t know about you, but I am moving more and more toward using the web for a lot of my daily tasks, email, calendar, social networking, etc., and I hate having so many tabs open in my browser. With Fluid, I can change all of that and have these websites launch by itself versus being stuck on the web. Let me show you what I am talking about.
Simply put, writing a resume is no fun. The first step to getting a job is getting noticed, and your resume is the best way to do that in a traditional job application process. Problem is, there are so many things to keep track of: font sizes, concise descriptions, word and page count, and more. Even when you get everything right, there is no way you can be sure that your resume really has the chance of standing out. You can bet at least half of the resumes mailed in by fellow job seekers are equally thorough.
You might have to think out of the box to stand out. That doesn’t mean you will have to hire a video artist to create your resume in Barney Stinson style. Instead of using boring and cliched layout and wordings, you should try something new, but that’s still within reach. How about an infographic? Kinzaa works hard to make your resume pop with a unique twist on a traditional resume. Intrigued? Keep reading to see what Kinzaa has to offer.

With so much bouncing around, I realized that I needed two things readily accessible on any device that I was on, that being my Internet passwords and bookmarks.
The beauty of the web is that I can access it from just about any computer. In the case of this post I am mainly focusing on bookmarks, usernames, and passwords. I use the web so much each and every day that I need a quick and easy way to access vital information regardless of the computer that I am on. Because of this, I turn to Xmarks for my bookmarks and LastPass for remembering my usernames and passwords. If you have never heard of these two web gems, you are going to want to read further to see how these two web apps can help you easily access what you need, when you need it.
