Zugme and Microsoft Great Minds Think Alike?

About a month ago, in April 2013, a new video was posted on YouTube talking about a new social media network called Zugme. A network that brings together people of all color, age and gender while allowing members to see only content that they wish to see and decide what and who to share it with. The tagline of this new social media is “All people. One media” and it seems to describe it really well.

My take on Zugme is that it is a well thought and executed platform. As a frequent user of social media, I really liked the blogging opportunities it offers. Zugme pushed the limits from regular blogging you are used to find on Google+, Tumblr and so on. What Zugme did differently is implementing a two-dimensional concept where content is tied to a topic and/or a geographical place (a city). The entire public content is somehow linked allowing bloggers to be part of the traffic. Speaking of blogging, I was super excited to see the audio blogging, which in my opinion will change how social media works. Thank you Zugme. I wonder if Facebook and Google+ will wake up and ‘borrow’ that concept from Zugme.

Another feature I really like is thatyou can set your language preferences so I don’t get bothered with the content written in languages I do not understand. On the other hand, those of us who speak multiple languages, like me, can enjoy seeing the posts in its original language. Thank you for that too.

Enough of me telling you what Zugme is. Do some research on your own. I wanted to tell you about this video and idea behind it.

Zugme introductory video starts with the words “Imagine a social media when you, I, and other people share information about almost anything but see what matters to each of us…” The 30 seconds spot ends with the words “Stop imagining. Experience it now. See you at Zugme.com”

Not more than a month later, Microsoft, the huge behemoth, came out with a new video of their own which was posted on YouTube as well to advertise their new tablet called Surface. Now, it is a completely different (cool) product, which is meant to do other things, but surprisingly it starts with the words: ”Imagine you only had to carry one device. A device with the speeding capability of a laptop but the size and touch of a tablet…”
And how does it end?
“Now stop imagining. Click in to Microsoft Surface. One device that lets you do so much more.”
Really? The same concept? Almost the same wording? Hey, Zugme! You are in good company when Microsoft thinks the same way you do.

I wonder what the account executives in the world of “Mad Men” would have to say in a situation like that? Would they say that “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery”? Or would they say that “Great minds thing alike”?

Most common Blackjack cheats and how to spot them to minimize losses

Of course almost all of them will get caught eventually because of the various security measures casinos have put up to deal with this issue. A successful Blackjack cheat will never boast about his or her tricks and will remain under the radar at all times. Even then, the casinos have eyes everywhere so in my opinion it would be easier to rob a bank instead.

You’re still here? Okay, let’s go over some of the most common scams and cheats people have used in the past when playing Blackjack.

The Flashing Cards Method

More often than not a Blackjack scam is made possible by the help of the card dealer himself. The most common way is for the dealer to flash the top card at the Blackjack cheater who can use this information to greatly increase their chance of winning a hand. Blackjack dealers are quite skilled when it comes to handling cards so this little trick can remain unnoticed for quite some time, even for the more experienced observers. By knowing exactly which card is going to be dealt next the cheater has a significant advantage over the casino and other players on the table as well.

The Deck Switching Method

This scam takes a lot of balls because the cheater has to literally switch the entire deck with their own, pre stacked deck so they know exactly in which order the cards are going to be dealt. Again, the majority of these scams include the card dealer to make it a lot more easier to change the deck. Other people in the table are distracted by various techniques and one also needs to lean over the deck when making the swap in order to avoid being captured on cameras. All this sounds pretty difficult to pull off but with the right team by your side you can do some serious damage to any casino.

The Adding and Removing of Chips Method

Another method fraudsters use to cheat Blackjack is by adding or removing chips really fast whenever necessary. They simply use the hand they’re dealt to conceal the chips they are adding or taking. One would add more chips when he or she is sure that he has a winning hand and remove some chips when the hand is lousy. By doing this they can greatly increase their winnings and dramatically decrease their losses.

The Marking of Cards

This is probably most common of them all. I bet even you have done this on a late night poker match with friends, no? The most likely way to mark cards and get away with it is probably when playing with friends because the big casinos out there have pretty solid security measures in place to counter this. For example they get a new deck after each game and sometimes even while in a game they arrange the replacement of card decks. There have also been reports on using a special kind of ink that is invisible to the human eye and can only be seen by wearing a special type of contact lense or glasses.

Now that you know the more common ways to trick a casino in a Blackjack game you know what to look out for in a Blackjack table to find out who might be trying to scam the house and you as well. I hope this has helped some of you, and always remember to keep an eye open at all times and your suspicion level up when playing with others for you may never know what your opponent has in mind.
