Instagram adds post notifications to help you stalk better
Tue, Apr 7th 2015 1:51p   Chris Miller
Instagram has added a new feature in their current release called Post notifications that allows you to get notified the moment someone posts a new photo.  You can think of this much like following someone with an added bonus.  Instead of them just appearing in your regular feed (or you having to manually visit their profile) you instantly know when a new picture was uploaded. To access this new feature you go to the persons profile you are wanting to be notified about.  Click the three dot

Goodbye Google Plus – that was fun while it lasted
Tue, Mar 3rd 2015 4:36p   Chris Miller
Google Plus has been an underground social network, for lack of any other good definition. Those that wanted longer prose, better images and actual conversations used it constantly. With some changes being made I think the idea of Google Plus as a network is doomed. It has been just over three years since Google dreamed big and went for a merger of services to hopefully mash together their seemingly endless supply of new applications and products. There was then the fight for the best Google Plu

Western Digital is closing MioNet – personal private network

Western Digital has announced that the MioNet service wrapped around their WD Network Storage is being closed. Western Digital offered remote access via any browser or their mobile app to your files stored on their WD storage devices. Unfortunately this appears not be a sustainable business model per this announcement yesterday. You could find the MioNet service with the My Book Live and My Book World drives. MioNet Customers with Month-to-Month Subscriptions Beginning in March 2015, WD will no

StarStar MyInfo – contact sharing with no app required
Tue, Feb 17th 2015 2:18p   Chris Miller
StarStar MyInfo has taken a new approach to contact and business card sharing for mobile devices. There is no app to download, no bumping of cell phones and no sending contacts via SMS.  The person simply dials ** (followed by your phone number) and they are told that they will get a link to your shared contact card. Your phone then gets a text message, with a link, saying who has requested your contact information to confirm the sending. After clicking the link., you are then able to choose s

Skype is storing your file transfers in their cloud now – where and how long?
Wed, Oct 29th 2014 9:28a   Chris Miller
With the recent changes of Skype moving to a cloud based architecture some of you may be seeing a link when sending file transfers. These transfers used to be peer to peer. Skype has not issued any statement or documentation where or how long these file transfers are stored. As part of Skype’s move to a cloud-based architecture, pictures sent via chat are now uploaded to the cloud. All of our Skype clients are currently moving to this new cloud-based architecture, and once we complete the

Checky helps you stop checking your phone so much – Virtual Gratification Syndrome
Tue, Sep 23rd 2014 2:09p   Chris Miller
How many times a day do you check your phone or tablet? Checky can help by telling you the number of times and where you do it using the location services built into your device.  The idea of the free application is to inform you where and how often you keep checking for that Virtual Gratification Syndrome (VGS).  Think about your own habits and when you unlock that screen. In the car?  Of course In the elevator? Yes At lunch? Always At dinner? If the other person does In bed? Oh yeah Random

Q-Spot by SpotUse – supposed quick and easy meeting planner
Tue, Jul 15th 2014 1:37p   Chris Miller
Q-Spot by Spotuse is a mobile application that is supposed to help easing the creation of quick, in-person meetings with your contacts. After setting it up and the limited help files I am not sure it was any use at all yet.  It is available on iOS and Android and you must install the application to establish an account. It has a web interface after you confirm your setup. The first thing after installation that Q-Spot asks for is an email address and password to establish your account.  A veri
