How many people are laptop only. Part of me likes the idea, but the thought of only having one computer scares the heck out of me if there is a problem. I have a desktop and laptop now, and I've built/repaired all my own gear for 15 years. I'm a heavy computer user and the thought of being laptop only and having a system failure that I can't fix in hours or a day scares the %$#@ out of me. There are a lot of people who count on me, which means that I can't really have computer downtime. Thoughts?
Phone geeks, answer me this. Has Android really gotten better in the past year? I had an IPhone (loved it, but screen size was disappointing) Went to Android, and it was no where near as good as I expected. Too many lock ups, limitations and I'm not rooting my phone just to use it. Also, from a battery perspective I've NEVER had to spend so much time charging. I went to a Windows Phone a little over a year ago, and it's been the best phone yet. Sure there are not as many apps, but the phone, and what it does for business use as well as being Microsoft Office and PDF friendly as well as crash proof has been terrific. Going forward, I'm coming up on an upgrade soon and the "phablets" look like a terrific option. I told the Apple Store guys 2+ years ago that my dream phone was an IPad that was a phone. They laughed at me, but look at where we are now. Last week the same guy I talked to then said that he could see the issue and that more people were expressing the same want. I see Android Phones with screens approaching 6 inches which is appealing, but I just can't see Android as a business friendly platform from my past experience. (heavy phone, email and text, as well as docs, and of course simply not needing to be on a charger all day) I've built and repaired my computers for 20 years (as well as many for friends and family) so I do have a high tech ability but no matter how much I limited the open apps and other things, the previous Android phone was too unstable and power hungry. My current Windows Phone charges 2-3 times faster than the Android did.
Hey guys, please take 30 seconds to help a small biz owner get his social media started. All you have to do is "like" the page. It's a plastics biz in Bismarck ND, but they ship everywhere and they may actually sell something you need. It's my sis in laws brother, he's a good,honest, hard working guy. These are the ones we need to support. And we all know how hard it can be getting started in social media. https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Plastics-Plus/178947508815457 here is their website also. http://www.signholdersusa.com/
Clear icons off your desktop down to 4-6 max. Then look at your task tray and shut down what you don't have to have. It sounds like you're trying to speed up your computer. When is the last time you did a full defrag and virus scan?
I'd love to go back to an IPhone, but at this point until they come out with a screen that is 5 inches or larger, they have lost me. Rob Aubrey, I've done the same and I've got a 2 TB home cloud so swapping docs etc is simple between the laptop and desktop currently. Plus "needs" are in google apps, online cloud etc.
How about a brokerage that gives a larger split for agent generated business and a leads program where you pay a higher split just for company generated leads? Everyone gets their cake and can eat it too.
