If you’re doing curation-driven social media or blogging, then CHNL.it should be on your radar. It’s far more than a feed reader, because it aggregates across social networks and feeds with a user-friendly interface. They allow you to filter by media type so you can videos across all your networks. It also allows you share and repost across multiple social channels. They seem to have a clear vision for future opportunities. They are based on the west-side, so you may begin to see them around town. The first surfaced during Social medial week in the Fall. CHNL.it

At some point you’re likely to drop your expensive iphone, android phone or table into liquid… which not only destroys most devices in seconds, but it voids warrantees. That’s where Liquipel comes into play. They can seal your device with a special invisible nano-sized coating system that actually makes all the internal parts water-resistant. http://www.liquipel.com

They also offer some means of sentiment analysis based on two different measures and help to identify and engage with key influencers. http://http:www.sysomos.com/
