BlackBerry

Yesterday, beleaguered  BlackBerry® (formerly RIM) published an open letter in the media asking their customers to stick with them. Read it here: http://us.blackberry.com/message.html

In the letter BlackBerry touted its key strengths including financial strength and best in class security.

Unfortunately for BlackBerry, they never saw the train coming that ultimately led to their fall from grace and will undoubtedly lead to their ultimate demise, and that is:

Best in class security and corporate / government business focus is not enough.

Oh, it WAS enough back in BlackBerry’s heyday. Back then, BlackBerry was king among Corporate and Government users and provided the most secure and efficient Corporate email and messaging platform. There was no real competition.

The recent UPnP vulnerability seems pretty damn serious. Disable it in your router before your computers, webcams, or printers get hacked.

Social Media Tip: 

Respond to negative posts or reviews on social media or blogs promptly. Don't defend or argue online, but post a reply or comment that apologizes and explains that their experience is not acceptable or the norm for your business/service. Be sure to post that you take their issue seriously and for them to contact you directly via email, phone or direct message.

Unfortunately for BlackBerry, they never saw the train coming that ultimately led to their fall from grace and will undoubtedly lead to their ultimate demise, and that is:

Best in class security and corporate / government business focus is not enough.

Oh, it WAS enough back in BlackBerry’s heyday. Back then, BlackBerry was king among Corporate and Government users and provided the most secure and efficient Corporate email and messaging platform. There was no real competition.

BlackBerry rested on those laurels too long. Their open letter indicates that they are STILL attempting to rest on those ancient laurels.

What they failed to realize is that even the Business Executive (or maybe ESPECIALLY the Business Executive) wanted to use applications that just were not there. Apps like skyping home to video conference with their two year old daughter when they were half way around the world on an important business trip.

“Of course you can!” said Blackberry, touting their proprietary and non-cross platform BBM messenger app.

The problem was that the two-year old didn’t have access to a  BlackBerry, because the home computers had to have the apps needed for families and kids, and BlackBerry was focused almost exclusively on Business.

Even today, with a shiny new (and heavily discounted) BlackBerry PlayBook in hand, when I was away on business for a week, I could not use it for ANY video or audio chat to my family back home.

How hard would it have been for BlackBerry to see the light and have a team focused on adding apps like Skype, Google Video, NetFlix etc to their lineup?

They could have had the best of both worlds, continuing to be the leader in secure business mobility AND allowing those same business VP’s and Execs the ability to connect to their families, friends and entertainment.

The ONLY tiny light in the letter is BlackBerry’s mention of supporting Android™ and iOS on their BlackBerry Enterprise Server platform. THAT alone is the part of BlackBerry worth buying (and someone will).

But make no mistake. The letter only proves that BlackBerry is still roaring down the road with blinders on.

Maybe the substantial cash and debt-free position is a hindrance rather than an advantage. Would a company without huge cash reserves have continued down that road?

Unfortunately that road is all down hill, and the letter is not worth the paper it was printed on.___

Not sure if it's just me, but I have been away from G+ for a long time, and now trying to clean up my Social Media footprint, and G+ seems so all over the place. Maybe I need to organize or clean it up???

Also - WTF is up with trying to organize my several YouTube accounts??? SO frustrating how the logon / gmail addresses / channels that were there that I can't seem to access properly.

Just trying to keep things clean and efficient - any advice???

More Hangouts love for different bandwidth environments

Today we're excited to launch two new features that improve the Hangouts experience in areas with low and/or unreliable connectivity:

1) Bandwidth slider. At the top right of every hangout is a new slider that lets you adjust your bandwidth preferences in real-time. This makes it easier to keep hangouts going, even in areas with poor connectivity.

2) Audio-only mode. Choose this mode to send and receive audio only, and thus, significantly reduce your bandwidth requirements. Other participants will only see your profile picture, but they'll hear you loud and clear.

Both of these features are coming your way today but they're rolling out separately so you may see one before you see the other. Very soon both features will be available to everyone, so give 'em a try and let us know what you... more »

Have you looked at your Videos tab lately?

Google added a terrific new feature. Your Youtube videos show up under your Google+ Videos tab (finally making it worth having). This is fabulous for people like +Daria Musk, but it is there for everybody with a linked account. Below is +Mike Elgan's tab (apologies, Mike!) which has nothing to be embarrassed by, but which points out that having multiple videos titled "My Edited Video" may not be the best presentation now that they show up here.

I hope people take full advantage of this, but it is one more place to check to make sure your seams aren't showing.

So alone.
Today at work people were talking about Friday being the end of the world and what they would do Saturday when they woke up. Having seen this ecard a few times I quoted it at work. Nobody got it. :-(

I won't try "Trust me, I'm The Doctor." or "Run!" or "Allons-y!" now.

I'm not sold on tablets as a replacement for laptops or desktops. After having one for a couple of months, I see the biggest advantage in using them to display pictures and video either on the tablet or to my TV.

For anything that involves typing and editing, my iMac still comes out on top. Maybe it's just my fat old fingers, but my accuracy is much better with a mouse and keyboard, and frustration level much lower.
