The Data Interconnections Waze and others need

January 13, 2015

Let me start by saying that there are exceptions to what I am about to discuss below but generally speaking, inter-app connectivity is lacking.

It’s exciting to see that cloud is being embraced by so many. From small businesses to the largest, cloud computing solutions are eagerly being rolled out for CRM, telephony, UC, accounting, storage and anything else you can think of.

Thoughts on ThinkGeek Customer Service

December 16, 2014

I’m on the phone with ThinkGeek because I purchased something which they shipped incorrectly. I tried email and didn’t get a response. They do say there is a 48-hour window which technically ends tomorrow but I’m not very patient.
