What is Busker?

Oct. 2, 2016

The dictionary definition of “busker” is: a person who entertains in a public place for donations. However, on the Busker app (for both iOS and Android), you’ll find not only musicians, but content creators who focus on travel, helpful info, comedy, etc. And yes, you can give and receive real $1 tips on it.

Just now: Man tried to scale Trump Tower in NYC! Cray-cray!!


Watch the video replay at: https://twitter.com/Gerjersey/status/763487727295889409

The cops arrested the #TrumpClimber around 6:34 PM ET, August 10th, 2016

Here’s how it ended, LOL

Periscope user Gerald Iorio got 386.4K viewers while he showed what was happening, with an additional 270K+ replay viewers (and growing) with a peak “concurrent” viewer reach of 204K, which means “204K total Periscope viewers viewing the same moment in real-time”

Addendum: On FacebookLive (user unknown) one broadcast had over 220K concurrent viewers. Let me tell you, heavy rain was in the forecast, and fortunately for the climber, the skies didn’t open up on him. That would’ve been bad.

Alex Yong’s first review of “Facebook Live”

myfirst_FB_Live
Click here to see my first Facebook Live, broadcasted from #SMWNYC (Social Media Week, New York City) #SMW16

(Recorded February 26, 2016 using a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on WiFi through Android Facebook Mentions.)

Funny thing is, this ability was available to me the 2nd week of JANUARY 2016 (via Android Facebook Mentions)

I was on a supposed official Facebook waiting list (I remember filling out the form) to get Android Facebook Mentions + was informed I’d be informed. Unless I missed some notice sent to me in January — I received nothing from Facebook. Nice fail, Facebook. Oh well, it’s here now. Let the fun begin.

Someone gave me her opinion and said she thinks the video quality delivered by Facebook Live is better than Periscope’s. Do you agree? I sorta agree. I feel Facebook Live would’ve been aweseome to have while I was doing the December event with Apple CEO Tim Cook (RFK Human Rights 2015 Awards gala, click here). Oh well.

The ReachCase: Does it do the job? Hear Matt’s verdict


Review by: Matt Rappaport

Is your iPhone’s data signal as strong as you’d like it to be?

Come on! Who doesn’t want a stronger data signal?

Your phone’s RSRP reading can indicate a stronger signal with the R79X ReachCase

Remember to interpret correctly, for example:

“-70 dBm” is stronger and therefore better than “-76 dBm”. The lower the better


If you don’t see an immediate jump in “bars” after you do the attach, you can try the steps below to toggle between RSRP and bars indicators. If you have questions, tweet the company @ReachCase


Step 1: Put your phone into field test mode and convert your bars to RSRP in dBm. To do this, follow the steps below:
Dial *3001#12345#* to enter field test mode
To return to home screen and maintain numerical RSRP:
Hold down the power button until you see the “slide the power off” bar.
Release the power button and do not power off your device
Press and hold the home button until you return to your home screen

Step 2: Your RSRP reading updates infrequently. Now refresh your signal:
Turn Airplane Mode ON
Wait 5 seconds
Turn Airplane Mode OFF
Wait 5 seconds for RSRP reading to stabilize
Note RSRP value when you hold bare phone in your hand
Tap the numerical value to show number of bars
Tap the bars to return to numerical RSRP
Stay put – your signal can vary significantly if you change location or direction

Step 3: Put R79X case on with the antenna extended and hold in same hand
Turn Airplane Mode ON
Wait 5 seconds
Turn Airplane Mode OFF
Wait 5 seconds for RSRP reading to stabilize
Note RSRP value when you hold the phone in your hand with the Reach Case antenna extended
Tap the numerical value to show number of bars
Tap the bars to return to numerical RSRP
