IBM to launch gamification partnership in IBM Connections with Bunchball ? #ls12
Chris Miller    

Hot off the email press, I received notice that an announcement will be made about a relationship of some type between IBM and Bunchball, a gamification platform provider at this weeks Lotusphere 2012 and IBM Connect.

Image:IBM to launch gamification partnership in IBM Connections with Bunchball ?  #ls12


Bunchball already provides services and integration to Jive and Salesforce, so bringing it into IBM Connections through a launch at Lotusphere 2012 makes perfect sense.


Nitro provides the industry’s most comprehensive set of game mechanics, including challenges, achievements, and virtual goods, as well as a powerful analytics platform.

Designers: Create assets for trophies, virtual goods, widget skins, and notifications, and insert them all into the system via the Admin UI.


As you can see Bunchball would place gamification, badges, tropies and even virtual goods into the IBM Connections environment to drive user adoption and engagement.

Bunchball is a cloud based solution also making it a key integration partner for the LotusLive suite of products.  So look out for more when I get the full details on the relationship that IBM and Bunchball announce at Lotusphere 2012 or IBM Connect.

Wed, Jul 30th 2014 8:44a   Chris Miller
The V.ALRT (VSN400) Personal Emergency Response Device is a bluetooth enabled device that activates to send emergency texts with your location and a help message. It came well packaged with the device, a pendant hook (no necklace included as indicated) and the wrist band. The device is attached to the package via a sticky tab so do not be afraid to give it a tug to dislodge it. Also included is a simple quick start guide.

What is the Repair Calendar Feature?
Tue, Jul 29th 2014 7:50a   Chris Miller
IBM added a Repair Calendar feature to help repair your Lotus Notes client by automatically detecting duplicate repeating calendar entries. However, most users do not know this has existed since version 8.5. Repairing the entries actually save them into a view.

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

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

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:
