Is Facebook More Addictive than Smoking?

A new study by German researchers claims that social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter could be even more addictive than alcohol, gambling and smoking.

The survey, carried out on over 200 adults, shows that throughout the day we find it far easier to resist cigarettes and alcohol than to avoid checking our Facebook statuses and posting on Twitter.

So if you want to make the most of your customers’ addictions, why not ask your consultant for our social media guide?

Save Your Data with Google

After months of rumours, Google have finally announced the launch of their latest product – Google Drive. And no, it’s nothing to do with that self-driving car they’ve been testing in Nevada.

Drive is in fact a cloud storage system, letting you save and access all of your files from any internet-enabled device, just by uploading them to your Google account.

The free service offers every Google user 5GB of storage for free, but if you’re willing to splash out, you can have access to an amazing one terabyte (1,024 GB) of storage for $49.99 per month. Which should be enough for every file you’ll ever need.
