Steve Pitcher › Gmail 10GB Attachments…Isn’t That Quickr?

November 27th, 2012 Comments off
Didn't IBM do that many years ago with Lotus Notes integration with Quickr (formerly Quickplace)?

Let's see.  I choose a file from Google Drive (Quickr) and insert a link into a Gmail (Lotus Notes).  Then, I send the email to a user.  If the user is authorized to the file, he/she downloads the file from Drive (Quickr) and voila.

Google markets it as 10GB attachments and the crowd goes wild at the...ahem...innovation.

Steve Pitcher › A Rose By Any Other Name

November 20th, 2012 Comments off
Here's an article I did for MC Press which covers IBM's long overdue replacement of the Lotus brand, IBM Traveler support on IBM i and the COMMON Europe Top Concerns survey. 

In the Wheelhouse: A Rose by Any Other Name

IBM rebrands one of its most revered products, and we take a good, hard look at COMMON Europe's Top Concerns survey. Plus, IBM i gets native support for the product formerly known as Lotus Notes Traveler: IBM Traveler.

IBM Previews New Lotus IBM Notes and Domino 9!


Lotus Notes is dead. Long live IBM Notes!

With most other Lotus products slowly getting "bluewashed" in recent years, it made sense that IBM would eventually rebrand Lotus Notes and Domino as IBM Notes and Domino. Even the icons are changing from the familiar Lotus yellow to IBM blue. Pushing aside 20+ years of Lotus brand equity, the move to the second most popular brand in the world (along with the 100+ years of brand equity) is much needed; it's the right thing to do.

Geekish Garrulous Grumblings blogs › Windows 8 Shortcut – Win+PrtScrn

Windows 8 shortcut

 

Windows Key + PrintScreen: Screen capture

I've long used the SHIFT-ALT-PRINTSCREEN technique to capture screen shots in Windows XP thru 7.

But in Windows8 there is a new PrtSc function - when you press WindowsWindows-PrtSc it not only captures the screen but also saves the screen short as a PNG FILE into the Screenshots folder located in your picture library.

The old methods of a simple copy to the clipboard can also be used by pressing the PrtScrn key or Alt-PrtScrn for the active window only.
