First World Wisdom: People in Small Apartments

First World Wisdom: People in small apartments shouldn’t throw parties

This is a deep saying for our First World Wisdom aficionados. Are we saying that owners of small apartments shouldn’t try to be bigger than they are, or should we be simply issuing a Workplace Health and Safety warning. It takes me back to Billy Joel’s Glasshouses album, but that’s another story.

First World Wisdom: Tweets and Swords

First World Wisdom: The Tweet is mightier than the Sword

The power of the pen is respected from eons of writings that have declared the “pen is mightier than the sword”. The First World Wisdom has jumped in to add to the change in technology and showed it was never the pen but the ideas that flowed from it. Now our tweets are overturning governments!

First World Wisdom: Like My Page

First World Wisdom: Like my page and I’ll like yours

Has our world become so shallow that “one good turn deserves another” has changed into “like my page and I’ll like yours”? First World Wisdom still says we should watch out for each other. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Now that’s Facebook ‘old school’!

First World Wisdom: Like my page

First World Wisdom: Files in the Cloud

First World Wisdom: A file on your device is worth two in the cloud

Every wondered if your hard drive is a safer bet than the clouds of Google and SkyDrive? First World Wisdom still says that you’re best to have your hands on the evidence. Is a bird in the hand worth two in the bush? Depends on the birds I guess 😛

First World Wisdom: Free Web Service

First World Wisdom: There is no such thing as a free web service

We used to take caution when reminded there was no such thing as a “free lunch”. First World Wisdom reminds us that someone pays the ferryman so whether its ad supported or an underlying partnership arrangement there is still a ‘payer’ and a ‘payee’.

First World Wisdom: Close by no WiFi

Sometimes missing is still missing whether its by an inch or a mile. This First World Wisdom reminds us in the digital age if you can’t connect to WiFi, there are no half measures, you’re either connected or you’re not.

First World Wisdom: A Watched Status

First World Wisdom: A watched status update never gets liked

This piece of First World Wisdom could be called “get a life” but like the saying “a watched kettle never boils” it can remind us that watching just won’t make things happen any faster. Go make a coffee or get on to something more productive and enjoy the day.

First World Wisdom: Never Judge an App by its Icon

First World Wisdom: Never Judge an App by its Icon

This First World Wisdom is a cute change on the old adage of “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. That been said with hundreds of thousands of apps available for users to browse through the use of a brilliantly designed icon that is both attractive and representing the service the app offers does cut through the noise.
