The magic Lotusphere 2012 Pretzel Cookie
Chris Miller    

It seems that there is much debate over this tasty treat delivered in our box lunch on Thursday.  I made it a point to tell my session attendees about it and to hunt it down.  Many even gave me extras as we headed out to collapse along the lake and enjoy some sun. (Some got way too much sun that afternoon *cough* mooney *cough*)

Well the cookie is a fine balance between not being too salty from the pretzels and not too sweet from just the cookie.  The immediate way it melts in the box lunch is a sure sign that you do not need to eat it all at once, or suffer possible stomach ache.

Many of you despise it, that is fine, we will take the extras.  Others are still non-believers and many have not seen it.  So I bring to you a simple picture.

CliMate Environment Tracker by Rooti review
Mon, Oct 20th 2014 9:52a   Chris Miller
CliMate, by Rooti, is your personal environment tracking device. It syncs via bluetooth and provides information on temperature, humidity, UV indexes and more. It can be worn and attached to bags and clothes via a flexible lanyard or mounted on the included stand. In the free application, a plant symbolizes you in relation to your surrounding climate. When you're protected, the plant flourishes. When you're exposed, it withers away. The app parses all your data into daily, weekly and monthl [read] Keywords: application archive mobile

Skype 6.21.104 is consuming way too much memory
Thu, Oct 16th 2014 10:12a   Chris Miller
I am an avid user of Skype and have let it update itself pretty regularly. Even automatically. However the Skype 6.21.104 update this week is consuming tons of machine memory. And it continued to grow So I uninstalled Skype 6.21.104 to go back to an older version. My choice was the last Skype 5 version I could find of 5.10.0.116 and ran into a new issue Since yesterday, all versions of Skype below Skype 6.13 for Windows and Skype 6.14 for OS X are blocked and do not allow you to sign i [read] Keywords: skype

What is the IBM Bridge to Cloud program?
Wed, Oct 15th 2014 9:49a   Chris Miller
IBM launched the Bridge to Cloud program to help users move easier into their IBM Connections (formerly SmartCLoud) Cloud offerings. The goal is to keep entitlements in place and move to subscriptions. "Bridge to Cloud" allows a customer to switch from on-premises Notes CALs to SmartCloud (now Connections Cloud) Notes subscriptions at renewal time, keeping the same entitlements whether they stay on-prem or move to IBM Connections Cloud Domino server licensing remains as-in (customers trans [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm lotus notes email server

The IBM Desktop Utility for Lotus Notes Clients
Thu, Oct 2nd 2014 12:50p   Chris Miller
Do you still use or have users with the Lotus Notes Workspace? Then the IBM Desktop Utility for Lotus Notes is a cool tool. The DSKTOOL.EXE Utility essentially remediates the user's desktop icons in a recertification exercise. What that means is that you can use the tool to rename the server that an icon points to with a simple script text file. It is currently supported up to version 8.5.x for Notes Builds 194 and earlier. Read the rest of the SocialBizUG article I wrote right here.

Rebranding IBM SmartCloud offerings name to IBM Connections family
Wed, Sep 24th 2014 8:17a   Chris Miller
IBM has announced the rebranding of IBM SmartCloud to IBM Connections. As you can see in the chart below, IBM Connections is now a platform and not a product. We were first told of this at IBM Connect 2014. Here is a quick chart with the new names plus more news. These changes will be implemented on or after September 20. No customer actions or changes will be required, and no URLs will change. There will be a dual entitlement option to help you move to the IBM Connections cloud for your [read] Keywords: connections ibm email

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.
