QuikTrip, Others Lack Consistency

by Dwayne Kilbourne on August 23, 2013

Let me start by noting that I am not here to get on (chain gas station/convenience store) QuikTrip’s  case, but they, along with others lack some massive consistency. To clarify, there appears to be a massive difference in the way that this convenience store chain (especially the one in Kennesaw, GA) and state regulators view […]

Last evening, I was running behind schedule but was craving some delicious Smashburger food. Unfortunately, I must report that a fast clock and a lack of customer service barred me from enjoying a tasty BBQ Bacon and Cheddar Big Smash Burger on multi-grain with a side or two of Smash Fries, and it also meant […]

My OCD Issues with iTunes

by Dwayne Kilbourne on March 7, 2012

As we all know, iTunes is the industry-leader when it comes to music library software. For the most part, it does a nice job of organizing your music by allowing you to add new tracks, create playlists, get music recommendations, and much more. While I am thankful for this software and its close integration with […]

Smoothie King Fails to Communicate

by Dwayne Kilbourne on February 25, 2012

Recently, I was out and about shooting a training video on behalf of one of my clients [Max Muscle of Cobb]. Afterwards, I opened up the foursquare app  on my Android smartphone, and, to my delight, I discovered that the Smoothie King that was two doors down from the gym that I was at had […]

Social Media Pet Peeve – Twitter List Caps

by Dwayne Kilbourne on November 20, 2011

I love using Twitter to connect with and engage bloggers, business and technology professionals, friends, family members, local businesses, and everybody else in-between. Since signing up on Twitter, I have found more and more people and brands to follow; along the way, I found that I wanted to better organize those profiles I was following, […]

Foursquare Badge Bummer

by Dwayne Kilbourne on November 16, 2011

As most of you know, I am deeply passionate about foursquare. I enjoy using the social media network, I enjoy telling others (both personal and businesses) about the power and coolness of foursquare, and I enjoy checking in once in a little while… okay, I check-in a lot! I have set up and coached many […]

PETA’s Porn Plan – Terrible Misstep

by Dwayne Kilbourne on September 20, 2011

So, I am sitting on the couch after enjoying some comedy thanks to Comedy Central’s Roast of Charlie Sheen, and I flip the channel only to hear that PETA is planning to build a pornographic site. What? Did my ears hear what I think they just heard? Wow! Apparently, PETA realizes that pornography is still […]

Facebook Mobile Mix-Up

by Dwayne Kilbourne on September 8, 2011

Just like most of you, I have the Facebook app on my smartphone devices, and I am logged into my personal profile most of the time. However, many of my friends and colleagues with whom I connect with on Facebook sometimes get confused when I am online, offline, or merely happen to be logged in […]

Limiting Lists on Twitter?

by Dwayne Kilbourne on January 13, 2011

Okay, we all need to have a limit set here or there, but I really find that Twitter is not being smart about this one. Twitter notes that the lists are limited to 20 with each list limited to 500 accounts. Not to compare apples to oranges, but you do not see Facebook limiting the […]

Facebook Fan Page Fixes in my Small Business Stocking?

by Dwayne Kilbourne on December 23, 2010

So, it is Christmas time, and I sit here wondering what technology intangibles I wish I had this year, and I came up with a perfect request for Santa, but it is a big request, so I will keep my fingers crossed. We all know about Facebook, and most of us use it quite frequently. […]

Technorati TKO’ed?

by Dwayne Kilbourne on January 5, 2010

It is December 3, 2009, and I am checking to see if my blog claim on Technorati has been reviewed and approved. I go online and noticed that indeed it appears that the company is simply running a little behind. So, I patiently wait. I figured that it would take another day or two to […]
