IBM is enhancing SmartCloud for Social Business in May 2014 to include social and mobile, Docs, and Notes enhancements detailed below.
IBM SmartCloud for Social Business logo

Here are some highlights of the release:
  • Expand collaboration with more community file storage up to 5GB
  • Find content you need faster with File Preview, File Thumbnails, and link previews
  • Draw attention to important community content with Community Folders
  • Paste images directly into Community Blogs and Wikis
  • Read, comment and like Community Blogs on mobile devices
  • Access recent content with one tap on mobile devices
  • Personalize navigation for mobile devices
  • Edit and manage Community events on iOS

Enhancements to SmartCloud Docs
Now subscribers can collaboratively edit documents, presentations, and spreadsheets across larger teams with up to 10 co-editors.  

These enhancements are available to SmartCloud Engage Advanced subscribers or SmartCloud Docs subscribers.

Enhancements to SmartCloud Notes

These enhancements are available for the SmartCloud Notes web experience for SmartCloud Notes and SmartCloud Engage Advanced subscribers.
  • Standard and Advanced Name finder options provide enhanced directory search and browsing capabilities to subscribers. Now Administrators can enable this feature by clicking on Account Settings then Name Finder in SmartCloud Notes Administration. (Available on or after May 7)
  • Two new options are now available to work more effectively with online meeting information. (Available on or after May 28)
  • Subscribers can update the online meeting information directly within a calendar entry. This change may be applied to just the current entry or all, future, or previous instances of a repeating meetings.
  • If subscribers select the SmartCloud Meetings option when setting up a new online meeting entry, they may now specify a password for their SmartCloud Meetings.
  • When a user invokes a the Show/Unread only action an information bar is now displayed to remind users that they are viewing only their unread mail. Dismissing the information bar displays all the messages in the current view or folder. (Available on or after May 28)

Support mobile workers more effectively with expanded Application Password support

IBM provides an enhanced security feature for mobile users. If an organization is using IP address ranges to control mobile access, yet needs to allow some users to bypass these restrictions, the SmartCloud application password offers an additional layer of protection for users logging into the cloud.

In previous releases, the application password feature required users to also have a Traveler subscription. This release opens up the feature to be used by any of the SmartCloud applications, independent of Traveler. This capability is set by Administrators in the Administration console.

SmartCloud Connections, SmartCloud Meetings and Chat now support this feature.

NuBryte Touchpoint smart panel review
Fri, Feb 3rd 2017 4:08p   Chris Miller
NuBryte Touchpoint is a smart hub/smart touch panel that fits into existing lightswitch boxes. You control numerous things like lighting, fans, an internal intercom, security and even use Alexa voice commands now. With a sleek design and just large enough touchscreen, the Lucis Technologies NuBryte Touchpoint can fit into any home decor. While I was immediately curious how this compares to some of our reviews on hubs like Wink, I wanted to run this review as a new homeowner looking for some
Reading tiled interfaces - I dislike staggered rows
Thu, Feb 2nd 2017 5:13p   Chris Miller
Recently IBM has been sending more newsletters with a tiled interface. While cool looking with images and bold text, the boxes stagger and make it so hard to read. In this example the tiled rows all start even at the top. But they allow different sizes so soon there is no semblance. Making sure you read everything turns into a column approach. Now in some cultures that is acceptable. But for most you read left to right, row to row. Not down, scroll up and back down. You then even end up wi

Sengled Pulse JBL speaker LED light review | CES2017
Fri, Jan 6th 2017 4:30p   Chris Miller
Sengled makes a few LED bulbs with cool features. From CES 2017 we take a look at Pulse that puts together a JBL speaker via Bluetooth inside the LED bulbs. You can have a master and satellites connected for up to 8 bulbs in a full audio experience. The Sengled Pulse fits into any standard bulb socket, but the shape of the lamp or fixture makes a big difference. They are made perfectly for can type light fixtures. They also work on lamps. However, due to their size and shape they will not fit

Phonetic Computer Eyewear product review
Mon, Dec 19th 2016 8:34p   Chris Miller
Digital eye strain has been a concern of mine for years. Blue light streams from the monitors at me for a good six hours or more a day. Phonetic Computer Eyewear makes a myriad of glasses to help combat it while keeping up with style. I almost put up pictures of me actually in them but selfies are tough. I have a special coupon code for my readers at the end. I honestly have tried and worn a competitor brand for many years. They were considered gaming and computer glasses and carry a visibl
