New Press Release Features – Still Coming….

With regards to our July 17th post about new features, we have set this time back (I believe this coming weekend), as we are actually adding further features along with the ones mentioned.  Thank you for your patience.

The additional press release features include dateline information as a separate field.  The dateline information will be available through a combination of drop down menu and free form type box.  This means that if your city/state/province etc., is not available in the drop down (most are), you will still be able to have it entered.

The reason for this change is because is going more international.  We will better be able to target your stories in different countries and journalists, through our new Media Desk portal (coming soon), will better be able to search your stories.  More on this to come as well!

We are hoping to impliment this weekend! – Effective, affordable press release distribution…

More Changes Coming!

Updates at 24-7PressRelease

Updates at 24-7PressRelease

As previously mentioned, the ongoing upgrades, enhancements and changes to the media release and press distribution site continue.

The latest changes, as of right now look like they will take place this coming weekend.

Change enhancements include:

  1. Addition of address book
  2. User INBOX
  3. Addition of Block Quotes


The address book is an excellent enhancement with marketing companies in mind (or anyone that represents more than a couple/few clients).

With the addition of the address book, you can now store contact information of up to 100 contacts (if you require more, we can accommodate you).  Contact information that may be stored includes:

Full name of contact


Full address information

Website URL

Blog URL

Facebook URL

Google+ URL

LinkedIn URL

Twitter URL

YouTube Channel URL

Boiler plate / About the Company

This will save you having to add this information each time your submit your press release at

The Facebook & Twitter URL also offer you the option of displaying your streams from the two sites.


The INBOX is a new system notification tool similar to that used by social media sites like Facebook & LinkedIn, or any forums.  When a system message is disseminated, the next time you log into your account, you will be notified of the pending message.  The user will have an option within their Account Manager to turn email notification ON/OFF.  Email notification is available to advise you (via an email message to your email that you register with) of any new messages on the site.

Similar to those seen on other news sites, block quotes (as seen here with the green quotation), are a small quote from the company about their company, product or service offered in a larger font in a separate area that stand out.

The Future Of Technology – Are Touch Screens As We Currently Know Them On Their Way Out?

Touch Screen TechnologyIt is possible that touch screens could soon be a thing of the past, replaced by a new technology, Digital Overlay.  This technology has been developed by iQ by Intel and PSFK Labs, making virtually any flat surface an interactive screen!

The technology, although still new, looks very promising and is bound to find the attention of any techno-geek. Opening up apps on your hand, dialing a phone number from your arm, or not even having to use a tv remote because any surface can become your TV remote are not far off.

OmniTouch, a project that was developed by Microsoft along with Carnegie Mellon University’s Human Computer Interaction Institute is one demonstration of this new Digital Overlay technology trend.
