The Girl Scouts at CES?  This one makes more sense than you might at first think. It was recently announced that Girl Scout cookies will soon be available for sale online for the first time, and the Girls Scouts USA organization is front and center at CES to showcase Digital Cookie, the new program that will enable girls to sell cookies online while learning about business and tech.

Made possible by Dell and Visa, Digital Cookie 2.0 provides a more robust, hands-on, and entertaining learning experience for girls. Girls from two councils, Girl Scouts of Northern California and Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada, will demonstrate the enhanced cookie website, which has fun new quizzes, games, videos, and other activities for learning about budgeting and resource allocation using a “spend, save, and give” model, as well as the mobile apps.

Create Your Own App With MAGE (…And You Don’t Even Have To Code)

August 19th, 2014 by Tech Staff



Do you have the next great app idea?  If learning how to code is still on your never-ending to do list, and you’ve been toying around with an idea for the next big mobile app for sometime, then we may have found exactly what you need to jumpstart your dreams.


What’s this dream-solution you ask? Well, it’s called MAGE, or Mobile Application Generation Environment.



MAGE can help you create a mobile application no matter if you’re a beginner or an advanced code pro. That’s right — no programming skills necessary. Kind of like the Squarespace of apps, creating your very own can be as simple as choosing from a pre-designed template, then dragging and dropping the content you want included.

Now there’s no excuse for your business or blog not to have an app. If you have a website that you want to transform into a mobile app, all you have to do is enter in your address and MAGE can pull content, like images and text from your website, and generate a starting application for you to work with. Users can even incorporate lists, tables and menus to their apps. MAGE also provides analytics, so you can keep track of your pageviews and install numbers.

Oh, and did we mention you can create gaming apps, too? Yep! Now you’re one step closer to creating our next mobile distraction.

MAGE is running a Kickstarter campaign to secure funding to amp up its template offerings. They just passed their goal of $10,000. The campaign ends on September 9th, so if this is something that your personal business or side project would majorly benefit from, send some funds their way!


Divas Drive In Heels: (2012 NAIAS) First Concepts – Code 130R/ Tru 140S

January 11th, 2012 by Christen

On Monday, January 9th – Chevrolet took to the showroom as the voice of the future as they unveiled two concept coupes at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. “Chevrolet has always stood for making the aspirational attainable for all generations” said General Motors North America President Mark Reuss. “These two concepts interpret that vision for a new generation. We’re seeking out our newest customers’ opinions, listening to their advice, and engaging them in new ways.” Inspiring next-generation buyers to take the wheel and suggest ideas for a car they can co-create, Chevrolet has conversed with young consumers across the United States, and what they’ve come up with is nothing short of amazing.

The Code 130R is a concept muscle car’s MUSCLE CAR…

Code 130R, the first Chevrolet concept, is a four-seat coupe with a simple upright profile.   Painted in an all-new red metallic paint with matte anodized gold wheels, Code 130R features heritage performance-inspired styling and rear-wheel drive. With an aggressive front fascia, Chevrolet fender flares, straight body side and Chevy crossflag emblem, Code 130R makes a link to Chevrolet’s performance heritage.



The Tru 140S is a concept of sleek, sexy, sophistication…

Tru 140S, the second Chevrolet concept is a front-wheel-drive, “affordable exotic” four-seat sporty coupe. The three-door hatchback was designed to be an attractive-yet-affordable sports car. Shown in an all-new matte white with Chevy performance chrome wheels featuring crossflag emblems, Tru 140S is designed to look confident, exotic, expensive and fast. Tru 140S is based off the same platform as the Chevrolet Cruze and the groundbreaking Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle with extended range.


“Young customers tell us they want functionality with coupe-like aesthetics. Both the Code and Tru body styles resonated with this audience,” said Frank Saucedo, director of the GM North America Advanced Design studio in Los Angeles where the two concepts were developed. Be on the lookout for the Tru 140S and Code 130R across the country at major auto shows, key lifestyle events, one-on-one experiences and your local college campuses.
