What would you do if you could choose between Siri and Gilbert Gottfried as voice options on your iPhone? I pitched the idea to him during the 6th Annual Shorty Awards and he said he’s open to the idea. Here’s a sample of what it would sound like:
DEADBEAT is a supernatural comedy starring Tyler Labine (“Reaper”) as Kevin, a hapless medium who will do anything to finish New York City ghosts’ unfinished business. Brandon T. Jackson (“Tropic Thunder”) plays Kevin’s best friend Roofie, Cat Deeley (“So You Think You Can Dance”) makes her scripted series debut as celebrity medium Camomile White and Lucy Devito (“Melissa & Joey”) plays Sue, Camomile’s put-upon assistant.
Like many road warriors, access to affordable and reliable internet is a constant concern. The hotspot device I have pulls from my family’s shared data plan and ends up costing more, as I typically go over allotted data. Since becoming a Cox Communications customer, I learned about CableWiFi. Cable providers have created the most WiFi hotspots (more than 200K) across the U.S., which gives more opportunities to use the data you already pay for.
What would a television news anchor do if their audio suddenly cut out during a live show? Make funny signs, of course. These WGN TV News co-anchors didn’t let a little thing like silence keep them quiet. They used white boards and paper to have a little fun during the morning broadcast. All the while, reporter-on-the-street Nancy Loo (@NancyLoo) braved the cold Chicago streets to share the morning news.
It’s a never-ending task to educate kids about online safety and “Take Charge!” as parent(s). Today is Safer Internet Day (#SID2014) and, to acknowledge the importance of online safety, Cox Communications offers insights into teen cyberbullying, general online usage and tons of resources for parents, caregivers and educators.
Today, Instagram announced a new resource for marketers and news organizations alike, The Instagram for Business blog. Their goal is to create a place where corporate Instagram users can access tips, tools and other resources for creating really great content–and, of course, to encourage more engagement.
It seems appropriate that, after a brief hiatus on FAVES + CO., to pick back up with this announcement. When the 6th Annual Shorty Awards take place on April 7, 2014, I will be there as your virtual host, the Shorty Awards’ digital correspondent. And, the deadline for Industry nominations is quickly approaching.
