The 2-Hour Job Search shows job seekers how to work smarter (and faster) to secure first interviews. Through a prescriptive approach, Steve Dalton explains how to wade through the Internet´s sea of information and create a job search system that relies on mainstream technology such as Excel, Google, LinkedIn, and alumni databases to create a list of target employers, contact them, and then secure an interview - with only two hours of effort. Avoiding vague tips like ´´leverage your contacts´´, Dalton tells job hunters exactly what to do and how to do it. This empowering book focuses on the critical middle phase of the job search and helps listeners bring organization to what is all too often an ineffectual and frustrating process.

How to Get on the First Page of Google is a complete system of how to get your business in the top of the first page of Google and all the other search engines in under five minutes. But more importantly, unlike all other audiobooks on this subject, this audiobook gives the listener the most successful business model on the internet today so that when your business pages are found on the first page of Google, you have a chance to get rich. Today, because there are very few jobs being created any more, there are millions of people looking to make an income on the internet to replace the income they once had from a job. There is so much competition on the Web for this and many other reasons that to get on the first page of Google is not the total solution because even when your business pages are found, if the person doing the search has seen your product hundreds of times that day, he is still not likely to buy from you. Having a complete business product and service as the one propounded here, a unique health food and supplements, the listener has a much better chance at making the kind of money that he deserves and needs to not only survive, but strike it rich. 1.

Behind the bitter rivalry between Apple and Google - and how it´s reshaping the way we think about technology. The rise of smartphones and tablets has altered the business of making computers. At the center of this change are Apple and Google, two companies whose philosophies, leaders, and commercial acumen have steamrolled the competition. In the age of Android and the iPad, these corporations are locked in a feud that will play out not just in the marketplace but in the courts and on screens around the world. Fred Vogelstein has reported on this rivalry for more than a decade and has rare access to its major players. In Dogfight, he takes us into the offices and board rooms where company dogma translates into ruthless business; behind outsize personalities like Steve Jobs, Apple´s now lionized CEO, and Eric Schmidt, Google´s executive chairman; and inside the deals, lawsuits, and allegations that mold the way we communicate. Apple and Google are poaching each other´s employees. They bid up the price of each other´s acquisitions for spite, and they forge alliances with major players like Facebook and Microsoft in pursuit of market dominance. Dogfight moves like a novel: Vivid nonfiction with never-before-heard details. This is more than a story about what devices will replace our phones and laptops. It´s about who will control the content on those devices and where that content will come from - about the future of media in Silicon Valley, New York, and Hollywood. 1. Language: English.

Digital technology was supposed to usher in a new age of distributed prosperity, but so far it has been used to put industrial capitalism on steroids. It´s not technology´s fault but that of an extractive, growth-driven economic operating system that has reached the limits of its ability to serve anyone, rich or poor, human or corporate. Robots threaten our jobs while algorithms drain our portfolios. But there must be a better response to the lopsided returns of the digital economy than to throw rocks at the shuttle buses carrying Google employees to their jobs, as protesters did in December 2013. In this groundbreaking book, acclaimed media scholar and technology author Douglas Rushkoff calls on us to abandon the monopolist, winner-takes-all values we are unwittingly embedding into the digital economy and to embrace the more distributed possibilities of these platforms. He shows how we can optimize every aspect of the economy - from central currency and debt to corporations and labor - to create sustainable prosperity for business and people alike. 1.

What does the world want? According to John Battelle, a company that answers that question can unlock the most intractable riddles of both business and culture. And for the past few years, that´s exactly what Google has been doing. Jumping into the game long after Yahoo, Alta Vista, Excite, Lycos, and other pioneers, Google offered a radical new approach to search, redefined the idea of viral marketing, survived the dotcom crash, and pulled off the largest and most talked about initial public offering in the history of Silicon Valley. But The Search offers much more than the inside story of Google´s triumph. It´s also a big-picture book about the past, present, and future of search technology, and the enormous impact it is starting to have on marketing, media, pop culture, dating, job hunting, international law, civil liberties, and just about every other sphere of human interest. More than any of its rivals, Google has become the gateway to instant knowledge. Hundreds of millions of people use it to satisfy their wants, needs, fears, and obsessions, creating an enormous artifact that Battelle calls ´´the Database of Intentions´´. Combined with the databases of thousands of other search-driven businesses, large and small, it all adds up to a goldmine of information that powerful organizations (including the government) will want to get their hands on. No one is better qualified to explain this entire phenomenon than Battelle, who co-founded Wired and founded The Industry Standard. Perhaps more than any other journalist, he has devoted his career to finding the holy grail of technology. And he has finally found it in search. For anyone who wants to understand how Google really succeeded, The Search is an eye-opening and indispensable read. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Battelle.
