Are you a content marketing spammer?
There is a fine thin line between producing useful content and generating useless spam. While some of us do appreciate information that helps us to solve our problems, or increase our pleasure, others may find a continuous stream of irrelevant content interruptive and irritating.

D) Gatekeeper to your head honchos; or
E) Spokesperson, communicator and messenger?

After months of waiting, Singapore finally witnessed the launch of Samsung’s GALAXY S4 With LTE. The much anticipated “super” smartphone ups the ante in its contest with the iPhone 5, boasting a larger screen size and battery housed in a light (130 g) and slim (7.9 mm) form factor.
With the world’s first full HD SUPER AMOLED display, the GALAXY S4 With LTE has an ultra sharp pixel density of 441 PPI. According to the Samsung, this gives it the best viewing experience for users. The smartphone also uses Corning’s new Gorilla Glass 3 which makes it durable for life’s adventures (and misadventures).
