telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


Goodbye Blackberry Exchange Server?

Holy Cats. One of the hurdles with PDA devices that weren’t Blackberries was the trick of getting push email. Not having to “act” to receive emails is a big deal, especially when you are spoiled with the Blackberry. I’ve had a heck of a time trying to convince the wiz that he could get something cooler and sexier, but he’s grown up with having insta-email, and it’s just not an option with him…..

While looking for device options for the wiz for christmas, I just stumbled across a wicked new application that can push mail to any device, with no user intervention needed. *blink* Yes, I said it.

Now how yummy is that!?!? All those amazing phone/pda handhelds that were withering in the vine because you had to “check” your mail can be instantly “berry-ified” with emoze. emoze will automatically push your email to your phone/pda as soon as it’s sent. No proactive connection needed!

There have been other companies that offer push email, Good Technology was one, and it’s just been bought up… but it’s pricetag illustrated that it was decidedly targeted to an enterprise application.  Who says consumers don’t deserve insta-email?  I pulled this quote right from their website, it looks like it can’t get any easier:

To use emoze 1.30 all you need to have is an email account and a compatible device; the interface will be familiar to anyone who’s used a traditional email program. The emoze software can be downloaded free from www.emoze.com and set up quickly and simply.

You have to peek at www.emoze.com to see for yourself.
