June 2011 Meeting Recap

Thanks for those CPAUG members who came to our casual meeting at Panera yesterday evening.  Here’s some of the things we talked about:

  • Google Swiffy (labs) – Let’s you convert Adobe SWF files into HTML5 allowing you to reuse Flash content on devices without a Flash player (such as iPhones and iPads)
  • Adobe Edge Preview – Upcoming tool for creating smooth motion and transitions for screens of all sizes, utilizing the latest web standards like HTML/HTML5, JavaScript and CSS.
  • Tumblr – Microblogging platform
  • Turntable – Let’s you create up a room and DJ for people over the web. In private beta currently.  Anyone have an invite to share?  Contact us!
  • Onavo – iPhone app that lets you double or even triple your data plan saving money on data costs.
  • Techwire – Great-looking iPhone/iPad app that gets updates from all of your favorite tech blogs instantly.  The app is quick, and best of all it’s not only free, but ad-free too.
  • RSS – Who’s using it, and how.
  • Tamara Eyster’s Math Pages – Check out some nice Flash-based math games that Tamara created.  Blow up non-prime numbers – fun for everyone!
  • Google+ – Will it be more successfull than the Google Buzz?  Can Google break into the social space and make a dent into Facebook?
  • MySpace was just sold for 35 Million.  Does it have a future? Word is that Justin Timberlake To Take Ownership Stake in MySpace
  • FourSquare – Who’s using it and who isn’t & why.  Foursquare is a location-based mobile platform that lets you “check in” via a smartphone app or SMS, & share your location with friends while collecting points & virtual badges.
  • Clear Wireless Internet – CLEAR 4G offers unlimited, super fast take-it-with-you internet. That means the internet goes wherever you do in CLEAR coverage.  Uses 3G as a fall back with data caps on 3G usage.  Two CPAUG members at the meeting have it and recommend it.
