Got the Samsung Galaxy S3 last week (on Verizon) and am surprised to learn that the phone can only check for new email every 15 minutes. Does anyone have a way to work around this - an app or widget? I asked if the iPhone checks more often and they said no. I have a hard time believing that. There must people others who are compulsive about email as I am (and as Blackberry is set up to serve).
Anyone here ever been plagued by malware called Xtendmedia and gotten rid of it? It's adware - popups. I've does scans (microsoft, McAffee, Spybot, Avast) and even had extra support from McAfee to no avail.
Best practices - this isn't exactly tech support, it's more like social media, but hope it's OK to share. Do you ever follow someone on Twitter, only to get a spam message in response? Well today I had the opposite happen. I got a thank you response where the person thanking me gave me some social media love. Here's what I got after following him/her: Real Estate Web App@RealEstateWebAp Meet @MaryPopeHandy #realestate #realtor in #losgatos for #siliconvalley area. Hey thanks for following us, apprecaited! @RealEstateWebAp I thought it was awesome and wanted to share. What a great practice, worth emulating!
I haven't started using QR codes (yet) so perhaps I don't fully understand them - but isn't the point of them to direct someone to a website? I just got an email from a real estate firm, trying to do a soft sell recruiting, and they put a QR code at the bottom of the letter. My initial reaction was "these guys are morons" since a link would have been more appropriate, but maybe I just don't get some angle on this? (At least with a link you can see where they're trying to send us.)
If you use BetterFacebook.com, you can see when someone unfriends you. But I don't know of any tools that say when someone hides or unsubscribes from particular threads. One thing to be careful of though is this: if you NEVER respond to that person, and something important is said - he or she will figure out either that they've been muted or that you don't care. So if you "hide" someone that you actually care about, make a point of at least sometimes visiting that person's page and making a comment, a like or something.

Chris, whatever technology a company provides to its agents must have stellar training to go along with it, or most agents will not benefit from it. And it must be ongoing, not just a one-shot blast. Let's face it, most agents don't spend time on forums like this or researching even the basics of a CRM (for example) which EVERY agent needs. So for starters, I think companies need to provide their agents with a top notch CRM and then they need to train the agents how to use it.
Same here in Buffalo... It went quiet at Thanksgiving and then December 26th it been a huge spike in traffic. Since 12/26 I have broken all time high page views for a day -- four times. I haven't had time to make any changes on the site...
