Firefox 3 for Developers…

I spent a little time this afternoon reading about Firefox 3 for Developers so I could kind of get an idea of what lies ahead in the next browser release.  I found out some pretty interesting features that will be available for end users, see the list below.  If you are a developer, check out this link for more information that is of interest to developers.  User experience Easier … [Read more...]

Dude Flips Out at Cubicle World…

I have no idea where this was at but some dude obviously just can't take it anymore and goes nuts tearing up "cubicle world" and finally had to be subdued. His rant goes on for a few minutes though before they stop him. I have to admit, if I would have been in the same room I would have probably been too hysterical to help out... this is just good stuff. Office Worker Goes Absolutely Insane - … [Read more...]

Dunkin’ Donuts / Rachael Ray Ad

When this story broke yesterday I couldn't help but laugh.  It's sad that we live in a society that this could even be an issue.  She's trying to help sell $4 mocha latte's folks, not support jihad...  Geesh.  It makes for some good humor though.  Just a thought though, couldn't someone just use Photoshop and fix this whole thing, and take Rachel and Dunkin' Donuts out of … [Read more...]

Mozilla Messaging – TB3?

If Mozilla can get together a product that is as effective as outlook and has the ability to sync with Plaxo, LinkedIn, and my Palm Treo Smartphone, I will completely migrate my 20 years worth of Business Data, 2500+ contacts, etc. to Thunderbird 3 when it is complete and out of Beta!  Microsoft, this will essentially severe our ties forever! Mozilla Messaging Starts Up Operations New open … [Read more...]

Headed to HostingCon 2008 in July!

My business partners and I had tossed around the idea of not attending HostingCon this year in Chicago.  It's not that we haven't had a lot of fun and picked up on a lot of really good information at this conference in the past 2 years that we have attended in Las Vegas and Chicago, it's just that we don't really see ourselves entirely as a "hosting company", we are about 80% development in … [Read more...]

R1Soft- Continuous Data Protection (CDP)

My business partners and I recently made the decision to add another server to our existing network to serve as an off-rack, dedicated backup server.  This wasn't an easy decision for me because I had already grown pretty attached to our disksync synchronization service that we were leasing from The Planet but at the end of the day I was pretty impressed with R1Soft's product, especially … [Read more...]

Comcast to Acquire Plaxo

I wasn't too surprised to learn the other day that Comcast had purchased, or was fixing to purchase, Plaxo.  I have been a loyal Plaxo user for about 10 years or so an absolutely love the service. Not only is it the single best way to stay updated with all of your business and personal contacts but it has also evolved into a very unique social networking aggregator as well.  The Plaxo … [Read more...]

Now Feeding to Twitter!

I think I am a little late to the punch on picking up this cool little trick because I have seen some of my friends already using it but I finally took a few minutes to get my mind around Twitterfeed this afternoon.  Basically Twitterfeed just feeds your Blog's RSS Feed (or content) through to your normal Twitterfeed so that your followers on Twitter are instantly notified when you have … [Read more...]

Email As a Service…

I ran across a blog entry on smallbiztechnology.com that referenced two companies that we (Pleth Networks, LLC) have worked with in the past and still have a current working relationship with, Maltrust and BlueTie.  Both of these companies offer an awesome alternative to hosting your own email in-house or on your web-hosting server.  If you have ever considered outsourcing your email … [Read more...]
