App of the Week: Soocial

Okay, it’s not really an app. It’s a service… but it’s pretty cool.

I don’t know if you are like me, but I have multiple email account synced to my phone. Four to be exact. Now that I live in the smart phone era of the 21st century, I host all my contacts though my gmail account. No more contacts living only on my phone so that when the phone dies or I get a new phone, I have to worry about contacts that are on my phone. However, I have four gmail/google apps account synced to my phone. There have been times when I’m on my phone and I can’t find one of my contacts. I know I have their email address, but its not in my phone contacts? Why, because my contacts with my phone syncs to the contacts of one of my gmail accounts, but the contact I want is in the contacts of another google account. Frustrating!

Google Calendar, Contacts Mail and the iPhone

As I write this, I’m expecting Jonathan Cliff to write a comment saying I’m making this too complicated and that I’m doing this all wrong, but I thought I’d share some of the technology frustrations I encountered today and how I fixed them.

One of the greatest leaps in technology in recent years was the ability to share my work calendar with my wife. No longer did we have to have long conversations of when I might be available, but instead, she’d just make appointments on my calendar for me.While I was on a PC, there were some good syncing apps between outlook (what I used) and google calendars (what she used). When I switched to a Mac, it got hard again. Then when we switched to Google Apps at Gateway, all was well. However, now my wife uses her iPhone 90% of the time rather than her computer.

For the past 18 months (at least), Sara has had an iPhone and she’s had access to my calendar and all has been well. However, for the past 2-3 months, she’s not had access to my calendar. I’m not sure what happened, maybe Apple or Google changed something.

Multiple inboxes with gmail

I think most of you know by now that I’m a big google fanboy, maybe as much as Sam Luce is an Apple fanboy. 🙂 So I’ve been using multiple inboxes for gmail for the past 6-8 months and I’ve not really thought a...

The day I quit Entourage

Yesterday I stopped using Entourage. Done. For good. I switched to a Mac over a year ago. There was a lot of things to get used to. Some of them good, some of them bad. Email was one of the bad. I’ve been an Outlook user...

Is your ministry in beta?

I came across this interesting article last week. I’m a big fan of Google. I like the way they think. Interestingly, Sara and I had long discussion (we’ve agreed to disagree) on the whether Google is really an evil...

Google Video Chat

I remember visiting the Sharper Image store when I was a kid and playing around the video phone. I don’t know if it really was an actual product or just a gimmick. Well, the video phone never really caught on like it was...
