Webee Console

Show Notes:

Building a Good Reputation from the Start: Dr. Azarias Reda wants to help teens to build good reputations online right from their very first post. At its core, Meritful builds a professional presence for high school students, much like LinkedIn does for adults. It is a place to document and share activities, projects and accomplishments—while getting feedback from a network of peers and mentors.

Playing to Learn: WEBEE was created by Danny and Rachel Van Buren, a husband/wife team, in order to provide their young children with a fun tool to assist in their developmental progress early in life, ahead of their peers. The program is open for investors on Kickstarter.

Apple Releases Massive OS X Update

Apple released a monstrous package of fixes for 134 vulnerabilities in OS X 10 (Snow Leopard) software.
