- SMEs report a boost in business
- Marketing to Men, doesit need to be cleverer
- The Hackers looking to ‘ransomware’ your business and invade your computer systems
- Tax breaks coming for the gaming industry?
Kehlan talks with Derek Perill from FRS Recruitment about what SME owner/managers are looking for in prospective employees. Derek talks about getting CVs right in order to get called to that interview and major role that owner/managers have in retaining their staff.
David Hartnett from IrishCoin the new digital currency targeted at the tourism sector. Much like Bitcoin, IrishCoin is a form of open-source software, held securely in encrypted digital "wallets" without any physical representation like coins or notes - they're simply encrypted digital items.
On the final part of this week’s show Kehlan talks with David McDonnell from CloudyStar who have developed the Tipper Z. TipperZ easily transforms most common pens and pencils into touchpens to be used on all captive touchscreen devices. They have also worked in conjunction with a games developer to create a game that goes hand in with their touchpens.
