Social Connections is shaping up to be a great looking event. I'm pleased to say that this morning I received confirmation that I will be presenting. I'll be presenting a 30 minute session on April 17th 10.50am, discussing our experience of using the IBM Connections APIs to build a Mobile Meeting Application. http://socialconnections.info/sessions/building-a-mobile-meeting-application-using-ibm-connections/ A customer had a requirement for a mobile meeting application, wh

Thoughts on the iWatch
Wed, Feb 18th 2015 4:25p   Carl Tyler
So a lot has been written about the iWatch, I have no doubt this thing will sell millions when it comes out, I will not however be buying one anytime soon. I haven't worn a watch since I got my first cell phone that had a clock in it. I never found watches particularly comfortable to wear, with my wrist typically falling right on the edge of the desk when typing the watch strap would just eat away at the edge of the desk. So lets assume I was to get an iWatch, what would make me

It's not clear from the IBM ConnectED website, but I will indeed be presenting at ConnectED 2015 (the artist formerly known as Lotusphere). I'll be doing a panel with the very quiet Mat Newman, and the very tall Alan Lepofsky. Which is session BP101: @IF("Its Really Good";"It MUST Be Notes";"Must Be Something Else") 25 Notes on 25 Years of Notes! You can now check out all the sessions on the IBM website https://www-950.ibm.com/events/global/ibmced/agenda/preview.html Se

Cable cutting and access to foreign TV stations.

Those of you with really good memories, may remember way back in April 2009 I cancelled my cable TV subscription. My savings have been used to buy various media players and subscriptions to online service. Honestly never had any regrets. A few months ago I purchased a Google Chromecast as it had such favourable reviews in the press. All I can say is these folks haven't tried the Roku or iPlayer for them to consider it such a great device. Personally I think it's terrible. I also d

Has anyone seen this? I recently updated my installation of Malwarebytes, and it is now throwing up this warning every few hours: Anyone else ever seen this? I'm still using notes 8.5.3 for my day to day work.

The Domino Designer documentation team screwed us all

They did us all a disservice by not preparing us for the future. They gave us too much useful information in the documentation. Pretty much every function in the old Domino Designer Documentation gave an example for every function or method, so if you weren't sure exactly how to use it, you'd look at the example and try it out and learn from it, you know, monkey see, monkey do, monkey learn. Those days appear to be gone in the new IBM products. I've been messing a great deal latel

IBM SmartCloud Meetings aren't really that Smart.

Went to an IBM SmartCloud Sametime meeting today, via a URL that goes direct to the meeting, decided check my plugins etc. before going into the meeting. I got presented with this dialog: The thing about this dialog is it is totally uneeded, the meeting ID was passed as part of the URL, read the URL with a bit of Javascript IBM and redirect to the correct page automatically. End users shouldn't be expected to figure this out, there's nothing "Smart" about this. Also don
