Some of you may not know, but I have always been a Super Mario Brothers Fan. I had the original Nintendo and it was totally awesome. The neighborhood kids came over and we spent hours and hours playing. Usually my mom would have to make us stop. I was totally excited when I found a site online that has the original Mario Brothers Game.
Flickr has pissed a lot of people off with some of it’s latest news:
In our ongoing efforts to Make Flickr BetterTM, we’re introducing two additional limits: the new maximum number of contacts is …….
We love your freedom, but, in this particular case, limiting these things will actually improve the system performance, making pages load faster across the site for everyone and …..
This seems like a terrible move to me. Flickr should upgrade whatever they need to upgrade so that their pages load faster and the site works better for everyone. They may be making Flickr better for them somehow, but definitely not better for their users. The other part that irritates me is when they say, “…efforts to make Flickr better, ….new limits.” I never actually think that someone decreasing my freedom makes anything better. Will Flickr’s flame flicker out when Zooomr zooms on by? I think I will check out Zooomr to see if now is the time to switch.
Today I spoke to my friend Johnnene Jones, who is a certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor . I told her I had come up with a nickname for her and it was going to be the “QuickBooks Queen.” Johnnene replied with the following:
Excuse me….that’s not a nickname, it’s a well earned title!
Anyone, who needs QuickBooks help should get ahold of the “QuickBooks Queen”. If you want her contact info just post a comment or send us an email and we will get it to you. She not only knows her stuff, but she is fun to be around! She is definitely creating the QuickBooks Queen Brand.
Robert Scoble introduces Seagate’s new product, Digital Audio Video Experience (or D.A.V.E):
It’s a device that fits in your hand, or your pocket. Other devices talk to it through USB, BlueTooth, or WiFi wireless connections, and it stores stuff. Music. Videos. Photos. Or standard old files. You can play those off of a cell phone, or a laptop, or a desktop computer.
With 10GB or 20GB of storage for less than $200, it means your mobile phone can be your mobile computer. Nice.
