Totally cool. I'm also RadarTheKat on FB, so either message me directly or search for the Market Days group in the FB search bar and then request to join and I'll accept you into the group.
WHERE AM I NOW?
I performed a fairly detailed review of free online message board / groupware sites. Among my criteria I looked for,
- a private, invitation-only group, where we can control who gets in
- ability to easily include pictures and links in messages
- easy ability to join
- ability for any member to also be an administrator, if desired (no one person would have control)
- ability for any member to easily initiate a private chat with any other member, or group of other members (private instant chat rooms) and without the need for any special rights or privileges. Admins cannot block private messages nor are they even aware that private messaging among members is taking place.
- ability for members, at their discretion, to exchange contact information with other members. If you want to provide your email or phone to get in direct contact with another member, you should not be blocked in this effort.
- a responsive message list
- a compact message format
- a full document library, so that spreadsheets, documents, etc can be uploaded and made available for viewing and downloading by members.
- tablet and smartphone app support
If all of this were available, for free, with no advertisements, no wonky monetization schemes, no host complaining about his costs…, well, maybe thats something we should all evaluate. Turns out, all of this is available. And it took me five minutes to setup.
i was intending to do a quick read on their patent portfolio today, having bought in on Wednesday in the after-market at $19.94. Can you toss me some of the patent numbers you think represent their strongest protected IP?
Yeah, they put in in the Nexus 7, then, with the 2013 model of that tablet, took it out. Seems like what they were using haptics for wasn't really that useful.
I could see Apple replacing the existing movable Home button with a virtual home button. It would stay where it is, still be indented, still have the TouchId sensor, but it wouldn't actually move. Force touch, tuned to react more quickly and under less pressure than is currently the case on the Watch, along with haptic feedback, would perfectly replicate the current Home button click sensation/action. If Apple is going to add the haptic engine to the iPhone 6S/6S+, as is rumored, then this would be a perfect use of it to eliminate a moving part that has the potential to malfunction, rendering the phone useless.
Add to this the recently rumored addition of a display within the Home button, to prompt the user with various actions, such as the need for the user to place his finger on the Home button to validate a purchase using TouchId. Like Jobs was fond of saying, when you look back, the dots connect.
Yeah, probably all true. So the question is, what are you doing to better your position? Hopefully you're trading and investing to stay ahead of currency devaluation, safeguarding your assets, and surfing the wave all the way to shore. There's a luau on the beach, dude, don't miss out.
