So some new additions to my arsenal of must haves. Very rarely do I come across software that is like "crackware" which means once you use it, you gotta have it.
The two software pieces I am talking about are Dropbox and Xobni. Coincidentally, both the founders are MIT guys, and conicidentally they are good friends and coincidentally both of their products kick ass. I mean REALLY kick ass. And of course coincidentally or not both of these guys are super smart so they have great backing from some of the best VC firms in Silicon Valley.
So first let's talk about Dropbox www.dropbox.com
This application allows you to synchronize all your files on different platforms. Mac, Linux, iPhone, Windows etc. What I couldn't believe was how quickly I got attach 2 ed to this service, never in my life have I ever used a product that made our company more efficient than every before. This product is like a "mapped network drive" for you and anyone else! Completely changed the way we do business, and yes we recommend this to everyone!
Xobni - Inbox Spelled backwards www.xobni.com
I ditched Outlook for 2 years (YAY!) since I switched to Google Apps. I considered using Outlook after Google Apps Outlook Sync came into the picture, and I really started using it again with Xobni since I can actually find my shit now in Outlook. The best search for your email, period. Great Analytics too which we use to view our customer service information as well I get to see all the relationships on my social networks and how they are related to email!
So my first post of this year, download this stuff and use it!
