Love is in the air. It’s February and that can only mean one thing. Football is over. Wait. No. It also means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. To make this month a little more loving, online payment platform PayPal (@PayPal) is giving away poems. Each day from now until February 13, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. (PT) you can get a custom poem on demand (#poemgrams) from a real, live poet.
It’s been more than a year since I found out about the i.am.angel foundation. Their goal is to #TRANS4M lives through education, inspiration and opportunity. Each year will.i.am (@iamwill) hosts #TRANS4M, benefit event that helps fund things, like college preparation and student life (i.am College Track) and providing college scholarships (i.am scholarship). This year I get to work with them and help share their story and, of course, raise money to fund their vision.
I don’t ever rank CES. Whether or not is was “better” or “worse” than last year seems almost impossible to do. I spend my time thoughtfully looking for tech that inspires, excites and has long-term implications. For 2014, wearable tech dominated a lot of the conversation and it’s one of my favorite things. Check out my day three recap with @CoxComm:
From embeddable Facebook posts to the democratization of Twitter cards, vote for your fave social innovation from 2013. Don’t see an option you agree with? Submit your choice in the comments.
Can’t get enough of viral videos? Now, YouTube has shared their rankings for top videos on 2013. Will you be surprised by the list? Nah. Probably not. But, even if you already watched all of the videos individually, you can relive your favorite moments with YouTube’s video mashup. There are even awesome easter egg video annotations.
#TheSelfie by GabbaGoods has been my fave iPhone accessory and conversation piece this season. The remote shutter release makes it easy to take selfies or group shots by simply plugging it into your audio jack. I’m giving away three of them to FAVES + CO. readers so you can be the envy of all your friends. Although, it’s the holiday season, so you may be inclined to share the wealth.
