Back in 2009, Lotus launched a huge (semi) marketing campaign called Lotus Knows. It was meant to bring a new marketing angle and awareness to the Lotus brand. Well Lotus has been slowly sun setting everything to do with it, so I am closing down the LotusKnows.IdoNotes.com aggregator and will be reviving it as IBMSocialBiz.
The LotusKnows account on Twitter points everyone across after a long hiatus and the Facebook page is now closed:
Hello FB Fans, The LotusKnows team wants to thank you for participating in this successful campaign. We'll be sunsetting this FB page at the end of the week - but want to invite you all over to see what's happening with IBM Social Business and collaboration solutions at www.facebook.com/ibmsocialbiz. Give us a "like"! Hope to see you there!!
So I see some of you still hit the page to glean information, just know that it will be making a turn shortly to help me aggregate and keep up with the new term of the year.

Miele CM5200 Countertop Coffee System review
Tue, Dec 3rd 2013 10:15a Chris Miller The incredible Miele CM5200 Countertop Coffee System was sent over for review. This is like having your own coffee shop with full bean grinding, steamed milk and cup warmers.

Here are the key points from our standard video reviews of the Miele CM5200 Countertop Coffee System! - This was easy to se [read] Keywords:

BlackBerry, Smart Tags and BlackBerry AppWorld
Tue, Nov 19th 2013 9:56a Chris Miller Yes BlackBerry you have done something dumb again, this time with Smart Tags and BlackBerry (AppWorld) World.

The article took me to BlackBerry World which had the QR code on the page. From here the experience sucked. I opened BlackBerry World on my BlackBerry Z10 device and looked for the simple way to sc [read] Keywords: application
IPEVO USB SuperCharger review - Holidays 2013
