Work at Twitter

1 Nov

One tech trend to attract great talents is to pump up potential candidates with a video. It’s all about how great it is to work for a given company and how much fun you can have, but also the other talents you can work with.

I love the music choice on this Twitter one (+I love Twitter):

Back up your files with terrific shareware Carbon Copy

26 Oct

Yes, the tech industry rocks. You have terrific engineers, working on some terrific sharewares. all you have to do, is make a donation. And yes, ok, if you’re broke, you have the option not to. Well anyways, I highly recommend this terrific shareware for backing up your hard drive. The only sad thing is that it’s on Mac only.

But they also do a great job of highlighting benefits and going over how it works on their Home page. Go Carbon Copy Cloner (or CCC)

Back up your freakin' files

Hotmail is still hot (and promoting Sweep)

Last year, according to Litmus, Hotmail had a 17% market share and was ahead of Gmail and Yahoo (but behind Outlook). This is according to their Email client usage worldwide study conducted on 250 million users. We (in the tech industry) tend to sometimes forget that Hotmail is still big.

Sweep, New email product built into Hotmail

The new Hotmail is supposed to be “faster than ever”, includes the creation of sub-folders, just like Gmail, and they’ve stepped up their security through additional encryption.

Lastly, some Hotmail features and built-in capabilities are actually interesting. They not only offer free online storage for documents and photos through Skydrive (boy do they know how to name a product! this name is strong!), but they are also heavily pushing ‘Sweep’ these days. Sweep is a tool to organize the inbox and minimize the clutter. Love this ad on their login page. It’s actually 3-dimensional even though it’s simple.

Go Hotmail! (and go Microsoft!)
