Finding text in OneNote images
Wed, Aug 24th 2016 4:58a   Volker Weber
This seems to be difficult to believe, but OneNote really does find text in images. OCR is done in the cloud. If you can't get it to work, just follow my simple steps. Open OfficeLens and take a photo: Although I did not frame the document correctly, it irons it out. Now save the document to OneNote: It will default to just a generic title and I will leave it at this. No tags, no folders, nothing. Open OneNote and type some text into the search field. Here is my document: So it may

Liberate your Notes app with KEEP.WORKS
Wed, Aug 24th 2016 4:11a   Volker Weber
Moving off Notes applications is next to impossible. Notes has a unique set of capabilities that are not easily rebuilt on other platforms. That is what is keeping companies from retiring their Domino servers, even if they have long migrated messaging. I call it the Asbestos problem. Easy to put in, very hard to get out. A few days ago I told you about the partnership of LDC and PSC, where the LDC VIA platform serves as a delivery platform for legacy Notes applications. Now LDC has built a sel

Heads up from IBM. Both Connections and Verse clients don't work on Android Nougat. If you don't want to be cut off, postpone that update until after IBM releases the next version in September. I think they are also way behind on iOS. Last time I looked they did not support iPhone 6 features, let alone 6S. I hope nothing breaks with iOS 10.

Making money on apps? That's over.

Brent Simmons on the state of creating paid iOS apps: Do we still talk about new apps and recommend apps to people? Hardly, these days. Vesper is shutting down. If Simmons and Gruber cannot keep an iOS app viable, the ecosystem really is in trouble. Games & junk just mask it. You can still make money by creating apps that solve difficult problems. You can still make money by creating apps for people who pay for development? But solving a simple problem does not pay anymore. No matter how

LDC Via partnership with PSC Group
Mon, Aug 22nd 2016 2:54p   Volker Weber
PSC Group and LDC Via have entered into a strategic partnership. Under this partnership PSC Group will adopt LDC Via as a platform for customers seeking to migrate data and applications away from legacy IBM (Lotus) Notes & Domino, and also as a preferred platform for the development of new software applications that might otherwise have been developed on Domino. That is pretty big. PSC Group is a very respected consultancy in the US. LDC is a group of developers in the UK; love those guys.

Android Nougat is here
Mon, Aug 22nd 2016 2:08p   Volker Weber
Google has released Android Nougat, a.k.a. Android 7.0. If you have a Nexus or Pixel, you can upgrade right away. If not, you may have to wait a few months, or most likely never get it unless you buy a new device. Next year will be the anniversary of the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro announcement, which wasn't available for months. It came with Android 5.1, was never upgraded to Android 6.0, and has not received security fixes since March, 1. And that's an expensive flagship device. Other vendors like

Move from Evernote to OneNote on a Mac
Sat, Aug 20th 2016 8:47a   Volker Weber
Since last March, we have helped Windows users import 71 million Evernote pages to OneNote. Following the great feedback we received, we want to help even more people make the move. Today, we are launching the OneNote Importer tool for Mac. You may feel hesitant about moving all your notes from a place you know to a new online home. Don’t worry, the Importer tool makes moving day easy. This was announced just two days ago, but I missed it. I moved from EverNotes a long time ago, even

Finally, a white Sonos SUB
Fri, Aug 19th 2016 12:29p   Volker Weber
Two Sonos speakers are only available in black: PLAYBAR and SUB. When I was in Santa Barbara last December I talked to senior management about the missing white models and we agreed that at least the SUB needs a white model. This will finally be coming this fall. Sonos unveiled one at Kanye West's store. SUB also gets a minor design change. The only thing I see is the smaller logo.

Arrival :: Story of Your Life
Thu, Aug 18th 2016 11:32a   Volker Weber
Arrival promises to be an intelligent movie, even though they added all this global war nonsense to an intelligent story. I have read thousand of SciFi short stories and books throughout my life -- see, you don't know everything about me -- and Ted Chiang's "The Story of Your Life" is among the best. Just read this senctence: "I'd love to tell you the story of this evening, the night you're conceived, but the right time to do that would be when you're ready to have children of your own,
