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.

Wink Connected Home Hub (PWHUB-WH01) review
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 9:59a   Chris Miller
The simplicity of the Wink Connected Home Hub makes this a bit confusing to some. The Wink Hub is only the hub and a power cable. During configuration you connect it to your wifi (which should have Internet access) and then use the mobile app on iOS or Android to finish the configuration. The easy steps are as follows (which we cover in the video) - Plug in the wink Hub - Load the iOS or Android app - Connect to the Wink Hub and begin configuration - Add supported devices by simply scann [read] Keywords: application archive mobile network wifi

Top 10 reasons to choose IBM SmartCloud for Social Business over Microsoft Office 365
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 7:12a   Chris Miller
IBM has released Top 10 reasons to choose IBM SmartCloud for Social Business over Microsoft Office 365 whitepaper. Here are some highlights. Documents from either IBM Connections or SmartCloud for Social Business which are synced to your laptop or mobile device are encrypted. Microsoft’s offline files are not encrypted which may result in the loss of confidential information if your device is lost or stolen. This is generally a large requirement by organizations.

IBM ConnectED 2015 conference tracks
Mon, Sep 15th 2014 9:18a   Chris Miller
IBM has placed the ConnectED 2015 tracks online for the January 25-28, 2015 event replacing IBM Connect/Lotusphere. Gone are BOFs and Show and Tell but a new tracks take theirs place. IBM has introduced Chalktalk Sessions in track seven to replace BOFs. This means a more interactive and open communication approach to the early morning/late evening sessions. Also new is "Beyond the Everyday" which gets itself in quotes and seems to place the Show and Tell track. The rest seem to be prett [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm lotusphere show and tell

Does Server_Restricted Do What You Think?
Thu, Sep 11th 2014 10:00a   Chris Miller
In another SocialBizUg article I had to question how we think about the Server Restricted ability in Domino. It does not always work how we think it should. Since IBM offers it we definitely want to use server_restricted=x with the appropriate value. There are four possible values (previous to 8.5.2 FP3 there was only 2): The problem is that some of the options still have unintended results. Mainly allowing users access to the server still based on database ACL rights. You can read the whole [read] Keywords: acl domino ibm database server

iLuv Wavecast Portable Bluetooth Stereo Speaker review
Tue, Sep 9th 2014 9:00a   Chris Miller
The iLuv Wavecast Portable Bluetooth Speaker comes in four colors, with the pink apparently hard to find. The sound quality was decent for such a lightweight device. It sits at just under one pound in weight. The battery life in the iLuv Wavecast was about four hours on a full charge. The back indicator light stays lit while charging until the battery is full. Make sure to turn the power switch on the top off between uses to converse the battery on this one. Pairing was simple. Hold the [read] Keywords: archive

BLU Studio 5.0C HD review - An unlocked, dual sim Android phone
Mon, Sep 8th 2014 8:45a   Chris Miller
The BLU Studio 5.0 C HD phone with dual SIM cards, quad core processor, a close to stock Android 4.4 Kit Kat operating system, 8MP camera and more for under $150? In four colors too. From the moment I opened the box I knew we had a winner with the BLU Studio 5.0 C HS phone. A dual sim, unlocked phone with an almost non-modified Kit Kat version of Android. That right there would cost you hundreds more in most phones. But the pricing on this made me skeptical until I did some real world testin [read] Keywords: archive facebook google wifi

IBM Champion 2015 nominations are open
Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 9:00a   Chris Miller
IBM has opened nominations for IBM Champion 2015 program. Anyone can be nominated and yes you can nominate yourself. I have been astounded to be part of the program since inception four year ago now. So what is an IBM Champion? I wrote a blog posting back in 2013 trying to give you a snapshot into what other Champions think it means to hold the designation. To sum everyone up it recognizes those people that give back to the community.

Thinkware X300 Dash Cam with LCD Touchscreen review
Tue, Sep 2nd 2014 8:50a   Chris Miller
As we show in the video, the Thinkware X300 Dashboard Camera with LCD Touchscreen is simple to configure and use providing exactly what they state in the product description. However, there were a couple areas keeping us form giving it a perfect 5 stars. See the video or read the detailed explanation below. Packaging: Compact with all the necessary accessories outside of one item.

IBM adds audio video calling to IBM SmartCloud for Social Business
Wed, Aug 27th 2014 10:49a   Chris Miller
IBM announced they added one-to-one audio and video calling to IBM SmartCloud for Social Business this past week. This has been needed for many years. While Lync in Office 365 has had this capability since as far back as 2011 (from what I can find), it is a welcomed addition to the IBM SmartCloud. While it is limited to only the SmartCloud and web only, they are promising expansion to mobile devices.
