People want things they can’t afford, and others want to get rid of things easily and quickly. Gifteng solves these two problems while allowing users to build a new kind of social status based on a very unselfish thing: giving.
Combining “gift” and “engagement” in even their name, users connect with one another through the act of giving. Finding new uses for old items Gifteng’s promote recycling and sustainability and highlights members based on their generosity points and uses gifts from other businesses to reward them for giving. “We endorse swapping instead of shopping” says the company aiming to inspire giving. “We believe that giving makes the world a better place, and more giving will result in greater chances of receiving.”
The extent of e-commerce in our lives isn’t a minor deal anymore. Virtual browsing is so normal that you can easily go through tens of sites in a matter of an hour scouring for the best deals and the product you want. But where you decide from may not always be defined by price but a multitude of other reasons. Granify takes the guesswork out of converting virtual window shoppers into buyers for retailer sites.
Using big-data and their system of artificial intelligence Granify seeks danger points before your customers flock away, and instead inserts messages with contextual relevance to keep customers from bouncing away. The Canadian company that has been backed by strong venture capital firms automatically maximizes revenue for online retailers by identifying shoppers that aren’t going to buy and changing their minds — before they leave the site — by harnessing the power of real-time big data and machine learning.

This might be our latest find that makes wonder how long will this last? A few days, months, a year at the most max right? “Here’s hoping that it never goes down” will be the thought for those grabbing movies from newzbins or torrents on the regular. So be warned using this application may be a risk in your country, please do take warning, but we found it to be worth sharing because of its well thought design and probably will be a must download for many of you, despite the warnings.
Popcorn Time takes the incredibly bland task of streaming and downloading torrented movies and turns it into a wonderland of eye candy. By moving the idea of grabbing torrents to stream or save on hard drives from the usual list associations and sites that many might enter with uncertainty, Popcorn Time places it in a iTunes-esque world.

Tired of lugging boxes onto the train home from work? Frustrated by missed package notifications? Now, instead of shipping to your office or home, ship to Luna. Luna receives all of your packages for you and delivers them at night, on your schedule, once you’re home. No more carrying big boxes uphill to your house, staying home from work for that new TV or missing the delivery of a last minute birthday present.
Solving an actual problem for people that either miss a lot of deliveries, have them stolen, or hate waiting for packages is why Luna is so great. From the mind of Zack Shapiro, he like many others was slapped with inspiration when he kept missing shipment deliveries of a package of his own. His solution was to ship it to work were he knew he would be, but his delivery was a 50lb kettlebell. Now imagine is his pains of having to lug it back after work all the way back home. A reality that we’re sure has slapped a lot of you as well.

The Southwest Airlines story is one that speaks true to that exact fact. Rollin King, an entrepreneur from Texas had dinner with a lawyer in 1967. But this meeting was more than a chance to fill their stomach’s it was a chance for Rollin King to start a business idea that is a staple in the commercial airline industry today. He drew out a simple illustration on a near by napkin—San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas were donned and connected to form a triangle. He explained that the company would do at that time what was revolutionary, offer non-stop flights between these three popular destinations.
