Let's chat for a minute...

gappsAre you still using webmail or the free email addresses from your ISP? Wouldn't you rather have your own professional-looking domain to give to clients and collegues? How about calendar and contacts -- the information that keeps you on track and keeps things running smoothly -- do you have a single database of appointments and people accessible from every computer, phone or tablet that you use? Are you tired of paying hundreds and hundreds of dollars for Microsoft's office suite every time you buy a new computer and then again every couple of years when the new version comes out? And wouldn't it be nice to have all the documents, spreadsheets, forms, drawings and templates you use regularly at your fingertips no matter what device you're using AND be able to share them or work on them together with someone instead of sending revision after revision back and forth, manually compiling the changes? How about a public website for people to view and read about what you have to offer, or an internal site to keep records, files, documentation, procedures and all the other mission critical data you need to keep record of, all in a single location? 

No doubt you've nodded your head and said, "yeah, that would be nice," at least once in the last paragraph. Now, where do you start? Well, you're in luck -- we specialize in helping you determine what your workflow is, where it could use a boost in efficiency and how to leverage cutting-edge and cost-effective technology to solve day-to-day issues and optimize your organization.

So? What are you waiting for? Quickly fill out our form and we'll set you up. We're an authorized reseller of Google Apps, but more importantly we're people just like you who use the Google Apps solution and could not live without it.

Why I decided to get a Chromebook instead of a new Windows 8 PC

(excerpt from pocketables.com)

You may read this headline, and think that I’m crazy. And quite possibly I am. But in the midst of all the current Windows 8 hype that is happening right now, I’ve decided to get Samsung’s new $249 11.6-inch Chromebook – a cheap netbook that many people think runs an impaired, half-baked OS that requires always-on cloud connectivity in order to be half-way decent. $249 for a computer that won’t run Windows apps, that only has 16GB of on board storage, and that is essentially a glorified web browser. [click to keep reading]

Google adds email log search for Apps admins

posted Jul 4, 2012, 5:22 PM by Jeremy Cote   [ updated Jul 4, 2012, 5:22 PM ]

(excerpt from computerworld.com.au)

Google is rolling out a tool for Apps administrators to search through Gmail logs, the company announced on Tuesday.

The feature, available in the Apps control panel, has long been requested by IT administrators of the cloud collaboration and email suite, according to Priya Mathew, Google Apps senior strategist.

"Gmail log search will make it easier to answer questions like: What happened to an inbound or outbound message? Was a message sent to my domain and marked as spam? Which users sent or received a specific message?" Mathew wrote in a blog post. [click to keep reading]

Gmail finally blows past Hotmail to become the world’s largest email service

posted Jun 29, 2012, 5:54 PM by Jeremy Cote   [ updated Jul 4, 2012, 5:22 PM ]

(excerpt from talkincloud.com)

Google announced today that its Gmail service has 425 million monthly active users. That means it has blown past Hotmail for the first time, becoming the largest email service in the world.

For many years, Microsoft’s Hotmail has been the reigning champ among global email services. In July, 2011 Hotmail announced on its 15-year anniversary that it had 360 million unique users per month. Yahoo Mail used to be the clear No. 1, but it has seen customers defect to both Hotmail and Gmail. And finally Google’s much-younger service (Gmail’s invite-only beta release was in 2004) has caught up to its older rivals. [click to keep reading]

Google Now Offers Chromebooks Through Google Apps Resellers

(excerpt from talkincloud.com)

The headline really says it all: TalkinCloud has learned — and Google has confirmed — Google has introduced a pilot program that enables select resellers to offer the Google Chromebook cloud-based laptops to their customers.

Google has been promising some kind of channel play around Chromebooks since before they were officially launched earlier in 2011. TalkinCloud has consistently tracked the product’s progress through the enterprise space, but always through the lens that no, Google still hadn’t followed through. But now, thanks to a CRN report, we know Google has launched that program underneath our noses. [click to keep reading]

Google+ Come to Google Apps

posted Oct 27, 2011, 2:30 PM by Jeremy Cote   [ updated Oct 27, 2011, 2:31 PM ]

(excerpt from mashable.com)

Google has announced a host of new features for Google+, including the ability to use Google+ from a Google Apps account.

When Google made Google+ available to all users earlier this fall, people who use Google Apps for work or personal use were left out in the cold. This was frustrating for many users, who, like me, use Google Apps to control the email account on their own domain name.

Domain administrators can manually turn on Google+ for an organization now and users who have chosen to automatically enable new services will get access in the next few days. Google detailed the change on the Google Enterprise Blog. [click to keep reading]

Fond du Lac and area schools work to keep pace with evolving technology

A lot has changed in the way teachers teach and kids learn.

Educators and students are adapting to all the new high-tech means of communicating: blogs, Facebook, email accounts and educational networks like Google, Moodle and My Big Campus.

"Social networking is becoming the norm," said Mayville High School Principal Lee Zarnot.

In his rural school district, students in third through 12th grade are set up with Google gmail accounts and teachers are perusing students' work electronically.

For example, a student could be working on an essay in a Google document at the same time a teacher is editing the work.

"There's a big push to use Google apps these days. There's so much you can do through sharing homework assignments, reports and tests," Zarnott said. [click to keep reading]
