How We Launched a SurveySwipe Survey on Anthony Weiner in 10 Minutes

This might be a tad on the immature side, but we wanted to show you how quick and powerful the SurveySwipe application can be.

We're all about immediate gratification here -- especially when it comes to making big business decisions. But then, life and the media hand you something so completely irresistible that you just can't help but jump on the bandwagon.  Anthony Weiner's personal branding problem is such an event.

At first, we started discussion how we can report the results of the on-going presidential survey.  And somehow the conversation turned toward poor Anthony Weiner.  The instant we started talking about it laughter broke out over the Skype call.  Uncontrollable laughter at the infantile idea that Weiner (the last name) was the same as weiner (the slang for male private parts) was the same as the picture floating around every news channel at the time.  HILARIOUS.

Then we wanted to know what YOU thought of the whole thing.  "How long would it take to program a survey in SurveySwipe?" I asked.  "About 5 minutes" answered Chandika Bhandari, the manager in charge of SurveySwipe.  And that was all it took.  In 5 minutes we had a survey, in another 5 minutes he'd re-sized the picture and another 5 minutes later we had responses.  It was AMAZING.

See for yourself.  If you don't have the SurveySwipe app - download it here -  If you already have it on your Android or iPhone, open the app and take the survey.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Internet of Things

In 2008, the number of things connected to the internet exceeded the number of people on Earth. By 2050, we are expected to surpass 50 million different devices connected to the internet. And we're not just talking smartphones and tablets - we mean everything. Wearable tech, household appliances, smart homes, public transportation, hospitals and even cattle have all been using sensors to transmit data automatically. It is an exciting yet scary time to be alive. The various interactions between these different entities are opening up doors for more apps, more software and more auxiliary services.
