Google Apps & advertising
   

After some recent discussions on Google Apps I got interested and started reading a bit  more into its business model. One of the blogs I read mentioned ads in Google Mail even for payed business accounts. Now this got me wondering as I always figured the adds would automatically be turned off once you bought a licensed account but apparently this is not the case. The domain admin can disable it but by default it is on, even for payed accounts.

Reading this help description on how to disable this I couldn't help but notice the little text about Web Clips that won't be disabled with that setting and that can apparently still contain sponsored links...



Ok, yes you can individually disable the Web Clips on a mailbox but I can't seem to find anything about disabling this for a full domain so if that is the case Google Ads are sneaking their way into their corporate clients domains anyway.

Interesting! Especially as the (paying) customer doesn't seem to get the revenue for the ads being shown in their corporate environment as far as I can see. So Google is making money off their corporate accounts twice. Once for the licenses they sell them and once for the ads & sponsored links they show them.... smart cookies.

Or am I missing the point here?

IBM Connections Folders #2: Ownership of files and folders
Tue, Apr 15th 2014 1:14p   Femke Goedhart
This blog is follow up in a series of blogs on Folders in IBM Connections. For full understanding I would recommend reviewing #1: Community Folders first Ownership is quite important in IBM Connection when it comes to data. Why? Well because ownership isn’t always straight forward and sometimes data shouldn’t be public. Obvious! Why would you even need to say that? Well… The premises of any social platform like IBM Connections is to share. That means that in theory the thinking [read] Keywords: connections ibm community security

IBM Connections Folders #1: Community Folders
Mon, Apr 14th 2014 9:12a   Femke Goedhart
Last week CR4 for IBM Connections 4.5 came out. An intermediate update that had a few new options for file management in IBM Connections. One of which was the ability to add Communities folders. Until now the standard option to get a folder in a community Files section was to create one in your personal files and share that with the community. Control and ownership would however remain with the user, not the community. This has now been extended with the option to create a folder specifically [read] Keywords: connections ibm community

Shared folders – potential security issue
Sun, Apr 13th 2014 4:49p   Femke Goedhart
IBM Connections allows users to share personal folders with groups, communities and users. An ideal option to share sets of documents/files with multiple target audiences at the same time. There are however some caveats. Especially in situations where Shared Folders are used to share potentially sensitive information with Restricted (secured) communities. If your organization uses Shared Folders I would strongly advise looking at the below example to get an idea of the potential risks so you can [read] Keywords: admin connections ibm community security

Podcasting… an impulse, a plunge and a lot of sleepless nights!
Fri, Jan 31st 2014 3:48p   Femke Goedhart
So those that weren’t all caught up in IBM Connect last week (yes I know, not many of you) might have noticed I did something new. Well not new in itself, but new for me. I decided to try and see if I could do a podcast. Now a normal person would probably think about that for a while, look into options, investigate Software/Hardware requirements etc and do a few trial runs…. Not me. On Monday night, 6 days before IBM Connect was to start, I was thinking of having to live through the [read] Keywords: ibm notes community iphone linux mac macbook podcast skype wifi
