Excellent infographic on Social Media’s Impact On the Sales Funnel:
Have you caught the following infographic on Social Media use for Small Business?
It was interesting in a few fronts:
➊ It features extremely useful data for those who are interested in Small Business use of Social Media in the even-more-useful infographic format.
➋ Some of the data I thought is really worth reflecting on: While 88% Small Business owners say they believe Social Media will impact their business; 67% say they will not make additional investments in 2012.
➌ And what’s more interesting is that out of those who are on social media 96% do it themselves, with only 4% outsourcing the work.
Any thoughts, please share…

Has anyone bought, played with, or knows anyone who bought the new Commodore 64?
There was much noise and excitement early on this year, but I haven’t heard much about it since.
Barry Altman, president and chief executive of Commodore USA:
“There are a lot of really young computer users who want to own a retro-looking computer,” he said. ”And of course there are those 30- to 40-year-olds who owned the original Commodore 64 and want the nostalgia of their first machine.”
They seem to be selling from $399 to $1,499 (I know the $1499 is crazy) on the Commodore website. I think the original ones I bought in late 80s or early 90s were $600 range. I loved these things —and preferred them over Atari.
The new Commodore 64 has slot or tray load R/W DVD drive on the left side of the unit; and comes with 4Gb of DDR2 memory and the C64x Extreme comes with 8Gb of DDR3 memory.
I loved staying up all night and programming various “apps” with the BASIC language. We used to save them on cassette tapes.
Should I grab one?
In the last boom ending in 2008, there was approximately $30 billion in angel investments and another $30 billion in venture investments done every year.
By most estimates, there is now as much as $80 billion in angel versus just over $10 billion in all stages of venture.
Just 1 in 100 angel deals may get funded by venture capitalists today, yet there are probably at least 10 strong startups in a 100, if not more.
These USB hubs and USB-thumb-drives are very cool!

Spring Forward, Fall Back! What fall back? It fell on my head!
Daylight Savings Time versus Standard Time —much talk about the pros and cons, and energy savings etc. One aspect of rolling the time back and forth twice a year must be: increased Wall Clock Sales.
This is the second wall clock I lost in two years.
I tend to remember to adjust them late on a Saturday, and I guess I don’t hang them right.
This baby actually fell on my head today as proper punishment.
…recently everyone was talking about the world population reaching 7,000,000,000 (yes that is 7 Billion). This graph is a little dated (2000), but it’s a super visualization of where the folks live in the world:
