SOFTWARE: FINDFRIENDS interesting application

Monday, May 20, 2013

Interesting use for it. 

My friend Pete’s in the hospital in Jacksonville FL.

I know where is phone is!

Laff.

I assume he still has it with him.

So, without bothering anyone, I know he’s still there.

Now if it could just tell me the altitude, I’d know if he’s still in ICU or moved to a regular room.

Laff!

Stalking to a new level.

SERVICE: GIST goes bye bye; don’t depend on anything in the cloud?

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Gist
We started Gist in 2008 to make connecting with your key contacts faster and easier to help you create stronger business relationships. In February of 2011, we become part of Research In Motion (RIM) to bring the Gist vision to millions of BlackBerry customers. Since our acquisition we built the BlackBerry Playbook Contacts app and more recently, our team has been tasked with creating the native address book/contact manager for the next generation platform, BlackBerry 10.

In addition to our core focus on the Contacts app, we have been given expanded responsibility for everything social at RIM including BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook and Twitter apps and instant messaging as well as much of the identity platform, location services and user analytics features.

With all this responsibility, we feel even more empowered to deliver a truly unique and amazing experience for aggregating, enhancing and connecting you deeply with your key contacts. All of this feels pretty exciting, but you may have noticed limited innovation on the core Gist product offering over the last year. In an effort to make the most of our new focus, we have, with heavy hearts, decided to shutdown the stand-alone Gist service. Sigh.

As of today, we are no longer accepting new users and Gist.com will officially be closing on September 15, 2012. Click here to read the blog post and learn how to get your data out of Gist so you can transition to another service.

Thanks,
The Gist Team

CardScan @ Your Service Discontinuance Update

Dear DYMO Customer,

As you know, CardScan At Your Service was discontinued at the end of the December. At the request of current AYS users,  we have begun working with a 3rd party software provider that may be able to offer you a similar service to store your contacts. With the new provider, you may able to synchronize your contacts from your local CardScan application with their cloud application.

Additional details about the new provider will be distributed in the coming weeks, however we wanted to make you aware of this offering as soon as administratively possible.

We would like to thank you again for being a valued CardScan user.

Sincerely,

The DYMO team

And, why would I care what you want to do for me? Like I’d trust anyone that you’d recommend. I bought your product (a desktop card scanner) which included your “eternal” update service. First you downgraded the service to eliminate the update. Then you left me high dry. Now you want to “save” me. Argh! Guess what I’d never buy your product or anything with the “Rubbermaid” brand again. Fool me once. I suspect the only reason your doing this is to make a few bucks off the data. Argh!

TECHNOLOGY: KODAK may go Chapter 11; are your pictures backed up

Nah, it’ll just blow out storing pictures. Now if KODAK offered it, I’d be interested.

BTW the impending KODAK chapter 11 has led me to back up all my pictures into SUGARSYNC and I ordered and have an EOY cd.

Can’t depend upon any ONE service provider.

Argh!

Word to the wise: Cloud services are useful, BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), always worry that they could disappear tomorrow.

Argh!

Remember the Rawles adage: “Two is one; one is none”. Service providers or survival tools, same rules apply!

Yeah the whole 5 Gig file in an email. Argh! So, here it is for your enjoyment. Just the link; take the file if you want it. But why? You can just share the link. Think of all those electrons you’re saving.

Wow, first time this has ever happened to me.

Anyone else want to bet their job on the availability of cloud applications?
