IBM Notes and Domino 9 launches public beta
Chris Miller    

IBM raced ahead of schedule to release IBM Notes and Domino 9 into public beta as of today. With the public beta everyone can get their hands on what is to become the must have client and server compared to every previous release. (We always say that though). Lok for some of the following features:
Activity streams: allow you to view and take action quickly on content and events
  • Embedded Experiences: allow you to access business critical actions from other applications without leaving your email. This brings collaboration in-context and results in tighter integration across iNotes, Connections, Notes, app dev (XPages), and 3rd-party products and services
  • Contemporary user interface, simpler navigation, easier to locate information both in Notes and iNotes
  • IBM Notes Browser Plug-in: allows rapid delivery of IBM Notes Social Edition applications to the web
  • Incorporation of a social application container, based on the OpenSocial standard, which provides for development of a reusable set of “gadgets” from both IBM and third parties
Lotus Traveler will also get some added support for BlackBerry BES 10, Windows phone 8 and iSeries.

I have already downloaded the server from the public site and client installs and everything installed easily and is running smoothly. I have plenty of commentary to come on different areas as we go along and I think they should be posts for each one.

The server code is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit for Windows, Linux and AIX. There is also iSeries. Lotus Traveler for Linux, Windows and iSeries is also there.

I would get the test servers and clients ready to see what IBM will talk about at IBM Connect 2013 and Lotusphere.

GreatCall Splash - Waterproof Medical Alert Device review
Thu, Jul 24th 2014 9:37a   Chris Miller
Overall the GreatCall Splash - Waterproof Medical Alert Device does what it states as a medical alert device. The downside in rating revolves around clarity of expectations, setup and performance. See the review. The device itself is tiny and we like the simplicity of the front with a single button. We could also see this getting misplaced or forgotten. The addition of the belt clip was nice and stayed on during our tests. We could see the clip breaking if caught on something though. Peo [read] Keywords: archive interface

D-Link Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router & Charger review
Wed, Jul 23rd 2014 8:44a   Chris Miller
The D-Link Wi-Fi AC750 Portable Router & Charger (DIR-510L) is the next step in portable routers for the road warrior. With AC band, profiles, USB charging ports, USB 3G/4G support, router, access point and more. I have numerous portable routers, repeaters and access points now (most with reviews up). D-Link is trying to bridge together more than a few features in one device and has done so very well. This also adds the newer AC band for improved speed but you need your devices and network [read] Keywords: admin archive interface network wifi

New in Blakcberry OS 10.2.1 is IBM Lotus Traveler connection type
Tue, Jul 22nd 2014 11:39a   Chris Miller
I upgraded my Blackberry Z10 to OS 10.2.1 to get my hands on a ton of new features. IBM Lotus Traveler now shows as an account type when adding email, calendar and todo. I was surprised at the number of new features, not just fixes, that are available in this release. http://crackberry.com/whats-new-blackberry-os-1021 See my posting comparing the Blackberrry Z10 and Q10 devices.

Brydge iPad Keyboard & Speaker case review
Tue, Jul 22nd 2014 9:04a   Chris Miller
We review both the aluminum and carbonate Brydge iPad Keyboard and Speaker case. These are made for the iPad 2nd through 4th generations and connect via Bluetooth. (The iPad Air has a different case that is available) The full QWERTY keyboard on the Brydge iPad Case was responsive with many hotkeys already available. We had no issues paring the keyboard with the iPad. Indicator light on the switch tells you if it is in pairing mode, low on battery or charging. Make sure you place the iPad [read] Keywords:

Allen Sports Aluminum Folding 2-Bike Rack review
Thu, Jul 17th 2014 10:12a   Chris Miller
If you are an on and off bicycle riding type person (like me) then having a carrier was always a task. This Allen Sports Aluminum Folding 2-bike Rack solves so many problems. Fist of all the packaging for the Allen Sports Aluminum Folding 2-bike Rack was incredibly small so I figured it would be cheap, hard to assemble or would not hold a single kids bike let alone two adult bikes. The entire unit is assembled and folds into a 17"x8"x4" shape. Amazingly compact. The aluminum frame is stu [read] Keywords: archive

Denny’s Inc leaves Lotus Notes citing inefficient and not mobile first
Thu, Jul 17th 2014 9:25a   Chris Miller
According to numerous press releases, Denny's Inc. has migrated away from Lotus Notes to Google Apps for Business due to being inefficient to manage and not mobile first. The press releases all have statements quoted from the CIO names Alex Lewis. I wanted to summarize and talk about a few areas. Denny's operated an on-premise Lotus Notes email system for many years. The environment resulted in many complex and cumbersome Lotus Notes applications. As the company streamlined its operatio [read] Keywords: collaboration connections domino ibm lotus notes sametime application applications email google interface mobile

IBM MobileFirst says we sell and support Apple and iOS
Wed, Jul 16th 2014 10:18a   Chris Miller
Most of you read the IBM and Apple partnership announcement. I wanted to highlight a couple areas that shows IBM will be pushing iOS and Apple devices into every enterprise. Besides building applications specifically (and probably mainly) for iOS and not Android, IBM is showing it's commitment to the platform. With Apple publicly stating it wants more penetration into the enterprise market, teaming with IBM makes sense. Here is the key part of the press release I wanted to mention.
