If you currently have a Real Estate listing, and you are using black and white flyers at point of contact as your only modality of advertising your clients home, you may be doing a disservice to your client and your professional real estate business.
This is an actual photo taken in January of 2011.
Before RealtyGo – advertising with black and white flyers was considered, a more affordable way to advertise your listings, vs Expensive Full Color Flyers. Now with our point of contact SmartCode and/or SMS “text message” gateway, you can offer the most current information regarding your Real Estate Listing(s) at all times. When you edit your online listing info within RealtyGo’ s website, all your listing information dynamically updates, giving prospective home buyers and new customers the most current information possible for all your Real Estate Listings!
Flyers, Black and White or color, can be expensive and often times are a strain on the environment. RealtyGo allows you to offer your Real Estate listings using Green Real Estate Communication. Is this a big deal? well we think so.

Internet telephony services provider Skype entered a definitive agreement to acquire mobile video software and services provider Qik. The transaction is expected to close later this month; financial terms were not disclosed, but multiple insider sources peg the purchase price at $100 million.
Qik’s platform enables consumers to capture and share video across mobile devices, the web and the desktop–content can be shared in real time or archived. The Qik solution extends across more than 200 mobile phones spanning the iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian operating systems; in addition, Qik comes preloaded on a series of devices via partnerships with multiple manufacturers and mobile operators.
According to Skype, the acquisition bolsters its existing video calling services by adding recording, sharing and storage capabilities to its product portfolio. In addition, Skype can leverage Qik’s Smart Streaming technology, which optimizes video transmission over wireless networks. Approximately 40 percent of Skype-to-Skype calls take place over video.
T-Mobile USA is discontinuing its HotSpot@Home phone program. No more free, unlimited VOIP calls via Wi-Fi at home anymore, at least not through T-Mobile. Skype, anyone?
The program has been in place for two years, but apparently never hit it big. Current HotSpot@Home members can continue to use their subscriptions until they run out, and T-Mobile will continue to support phone calls via Wi-Fi in public hotspots.
Other than that, it doesn’t look like T-Mobile will be releasing a replacement to this service anytime soon.
Subscriptions were between $10 to $15 per month for unlimited calling for phones plugged into a broadband-connected adapter. But when Skype has monthly subscriptions starting at $2.95 that you can use from the ease of any compatible computer or smartphone, the HotSpot@Home program just doesn’t seem worth it.
Any T-Mobile users out there distraught over this?
RealtyGo currently is designing new Social VOIP Software for future Smartphone operating systems.
T-Mobile USA announced it will sell the Android-powered G-Slate tablet, built by LG, “in coming months.”
The companies provided little in the way of details. The G-Slate will run the “Honeycomb” version of Android 3.0, which is designed for tablet-style gadgets, and will support T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network, which the carrier has branded as 4G. The companies did not release specifications, pricing or a launch date.
The announcement of the G-Slate came mere minutes after Motorola Mobility (NYSE:MMI) unveiled its own Honeycomb-powered tablet, the Xoom for Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ)–a possible move by T-Mobile and LG to lessen the splash of Motorola’s announcement here at the Consumer Electronics Show.
The G-Slate represents a further evolution of both T-Mobile USA and LG’s respective strategies. T-Mobile has been working to broaden and deepen its lineup of high-end devices, and currently sells the Samsung GalaxyTab tablet and the HSPA+-powered G2 and myTouch 4G smartphones. All of the gadgets run Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android platform.
For LG, the G-Slate brings to a close the company’s troubled tablet journey. LG announced in July its intention to offer an Android tablet in the fourth quarter of 2010. However, in October the company said it scrapped plans to offer an Android 2.2 tablet, arguing Android 2.2, dubbed Froyo, isn’t suitable for tablet-sized devices.
….and our Mobile Real Estate software and services will run on any tablet and Smartphone Operating System.

More U.S. schools are experimenting with Apple’s iPad as a learning tool, including Roslyn High School in Long Island, N.Y., which handed out 47 of the devices to students and teachers in two classes last month. The digital devices create a new communication channel between students and teachers and also preserve a record of each student’s work.
This year may finally be the year of the tablet, with a new iPad and a new version of the Google Android platform in the wings, according to a Forrester Research report, which projects a doubling in tablet sales in 2011. Also adding to tablet fever is growing use of the mobile devices as educational tools.
Mobile payment systems using near-field communications technology are emerging: Wells Fargo says it will start a trial with 200 employees in San Francisco, and Google reportedly is considering starting a similar service this year. “We have made an investment in this technology, and we hope this investment pays off,” says Peter Ho, a Wells Fargo product manager.
Bazaar Labs, which produces the Miso mobile check-in service for TV viewers, raised $1.5 million in its first institutional round of funding. Google Ventures led the round, with Hearst joining in. Separately, Bazaar announced it has signed up the Oprah Winfrey Network as its first network partner of 2011
Regional, flat-rate CDMA operator Revol Wireless reached an agreement late last month with bondholders that the company said will prevent a possible bankruptcy.
Scott Bergs, Revol’s chief operating officer, said Revol was unable to repay its senior secured notes due Dec. 15, and as a result began negotiations with its bondholders. He said the company reached an agreement with the bondholders Dec. 30 that extends the deadline for the repayment to April 30. He said the extension will give Revol additional time to obtain the necessary funds. However, in the event the company remains unable to repay the notes when they become due in April, Bergs said the agreement outlines a transfer of control of Revol to its bondholders–a stipulation he said is intended to prevent Revol from having to file for bankruptcy.
Bergs declined to name the bondholders. The company owes $150 million.
Bergs said Revol encountered some unexpected “hiccups in our refinancing plan,” and the company was therefore unable to make its Dec. 15 payments. “We still remain excited about our growth trajectory,” he said.
According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Revol–a privately held carrier with 350 employees and operations in Ohio and surrounding areas–is currently in merger discussions with another regional, flat-rate CDMA carrier, Mobi PCS in Hawaii. Both companies share the same main investors–Boston’s M/C Venture Partners and Virginia’s Columbia Capital–as well as the same CEO, Bill Javis. Revol’s Bergs acknowledged that such a tie-up could be explored, and said the companies have collaborated in the past, but declined to comment on any possible merger discussions.
Interestingly, Revol’s financial troubles come during a busy time for the carrier: Revol plans to begin selling its first Android smartphone, the LG Optimus, Jan. 7 for $299. The phone will be available with a no-contract, monthly service plan of $55 per month, which includes unlimited talking, texting and data.
We went to the Zillow App and we did down load, however some of the reviews concerned us…

I just found my house on here! But I bought it two years ago! This app isn’t reliable. I like the concept but what’s the point if it’s outdated?
Lost my favorites overnight and will not sign me in.
It’s a great app but its not as accurate as realtor.com. For example it shows houses for sale that are not listed on realtor.com
These were the 3 top reviews, in our experience with google, they welcome constructive criticism, which is a good feature of their corporate presence.
We hope that our customers and affiliates will give us great feedback and reviews to help make our services better and more user friendly.
Thanks to everyone in advance that take the time out of their busy schedule to help companies be better!
