I skouted out the girl of my dreams!
When it comes to dating apps and chatting communities online, the same few, not to mention stale, names come to mind and those are just not what I was after. What I was looking for was a place where I could communicate with a lot of different people and make some friends in the process of finding a date.
I have tried countless online date finding services and I have always been absolutely and entirely underwhelmed by interface, features and overall functionality. It seemed like a more effective way to find a date would be to yodel my life story outside of a convenience store and await a suitable mate’s arrival. But then a friend introduced me to a service called Skout.
I didn’t feel like I had much to lose, so despite my immediate questions and concerns, I gave it a try and downloaded the Skout app to my phone and created my account and profile. That same night I found a date with a girl from my city and we have been on a few dates since then. I would have never believed it until I tried it. Now I’m aware that the obvious choice in online dating apps and services is Skout.
The user interface is fast and responsive, but simple and familiar. It reminds me of other services I use on a daily basis along with millions of other people, so the learning curve was almost nonexistent. I felt fluent almost right away and starting using the app. I have made quite a few new friends who share hobbies and interests with me and I found the girl I am now dating on the app in my first day. Skout is ahead of it’s time and seamlessly works into the social media experience that we as a society are so accustomed to today.
Before Skout, I felt strongly that the online dating “scene” was lacking and was just simply behind the times, but now I see in action how effective I wished that other sites could have been. I was totally blown away by my immediate experience and I’m still enjoying using it.

Bustle Blogger Boosts Limp Oily Hair With WEN Cleansing Conditioner
If you’ve been cursed with fine, flat hair like Emily McClure, then you know how challenging it can be to try and deliver shine and volume to your strands. Most shampoos you find in drugstores and even with high end retailers like Sephora, contain harsh chemicals that are actually damaging your hair. That’s why Emily reached for a bottle of Wen hair to see if she could achieve celebrity hair.
WEN hair by Chaz Dean (http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html) is a healthy, no-shampoo method that has revolutionized the hair care routines for people around the world. Popular California stylist Chaz Dean developed a natural cleanser with botanicals that returned strength and body to locks. Shampoo was no longer needed, and the Bustle.com blogger was excited to see what Wen hair could do for her.
Emily kept a daily diary and snapped photos to show her results to readers. Emily has medium length hair to begin with. As she started her WEN daily wash, she felt that too much of the cleansing conditioner was required, which would mean 16-24 pumps. Instead, Emily used the minimum amount of 10 pumps for short hair.
Emily found her hair shiny and full when she kept to the daily wash routine. If she went off the proper schedule, she found her locks go limp and greasy fast. Maybe she wasn’t using enough WEN product in the shower?
One night, Emily chose to wash with WEN in the nighttime, and when she awoke, her strands were already flat and oily. Another time, Emily was late and skipped her daily AM WEN wash, and her locks paid the price. So, she added dry shampoo to try and remedy the hot hair mess.
Emily concluded that WEN really works if you shower and style your hair every morning. The proper routine makes a major difference.

FreedomPop and Free WhatsApp
FreedomPop is really aggressive when it comes to expansion. Among the activities that it is a=involved in is the incorporation of Facebook’s WhatsApp. If there is a good combination that people can experience, it is the combination of free phone service along with the free texting app. FreedonPop is offering its users WhatsApp usage at a zero rate. The only thing is that this is only available in Spain. It is worth noting that FreedomPop is using WhatsApp without a partnership. This is all done on FreedomPop’s own volition. This is part of FreedomPop’s plans for expansion in the year.
Among the plans that FreedomPop has for expansion include forming a partnership up with mobile carriers that are currently in business. This is in fact how FreedomPop got its start. It started out as a wholesale agreement under Sprint. It eventually grew into a partner of Sprint. It has also sought to take on other markets and looking for mobile carriers that are willing to partner with it. There are some cases where the mobile carrier plans to break into completely new markets and offer unique business models to people. Either way, FreedomPop’s expansion plans have turned out to be very successful.
FreedomPop is also on the verge of a significant change. Up until now, FreedomPop always used refurbished or used devices. Now, there is a new device in the works which is being developed by Intel for use with the mobile network. Since it is being developed by Intel, it is going to have a quick processor. Intel has had a hard time breaking into the mobile industry. FreedomPop has given it the opportunity to. This is going to be another significant step in the success of the freemium mobile carrier. Many people are going to be excited about the new phone for a multitude of reasons including the fast processor.
