Blackberry Curve 8330 – Thoughts

February 14, 2010

All my life I’ve enjoyed using new electronics, computers and gadgets. I used smart phones in the early 2000s based on Windows Mobile and with earlier Blackberry platforms. Recently, I purchased the Blackberry 8330 after considering the iPhone and other options, and needless to say, I am amazed by the Blackberry 8330. I continue to find new uses and 8330 features every day. The phone, SMS and email functions are solid, as is everything else. I added an 8GB sdhc card, and now have more room for pictures and video. One of my favorite applications is Barnes and Noble eReader for Blackberry. I have a number of books sitting on my sdhc card that I can read whenever and wherever. I know the iPhone, Droid, Palm and Windows Mobile devices are strong, but the 8330 is impressive.

Dropbox Review

February 14, 2010

We implemented Dropbox into our business development and proposal workflow in mid 2009. After heavy use, I am impressed with Dropbox’s features, ease of use and pricing. Dropbox has increased our team’s productivity through collaboration and ubiquitous file access. It has a “Recent Events” feature which makes it very MS Sharepoint-like in terms of keeping the team informed, and administration is very simple. Dropbox’s web interface and versioning are first class as well. Good job Dropbox – keep innovating! ┬áCheck it out at:
