Motorola S9-HD

Another great add on for the iphone, wireless bluetooth headset that actually works. I love the Iphone and Ipod but hate being tethered by headphones. The first generation of wireless headphone had their quirks but the Motorola's are almost perfect. They work great on the Iphone except I do have to put the headphones in pairing mode to get them to connect a lot of times.
Getting them to work on the desktop was a bit tricky. I did not have bluetooth built in and grabbed a Rocketfish micro usb adapter. At first since I'm using windows 7 I did not use the cd to install, second go around I did and now it work like a champ. Music does sound better on the Iphone and my software phone sounded OK.
I'm curious how well the headset will work in the data center with all the noice, with the Jawbone I have to cover my other ear. I'm curious how they will sound on the other end with all the all the background noise.
My New Years resolution is to get in better shape and the S9-HD's fit nice and snug they are a bit bulky in the back trade off I guess so you will not be able to lay flat on the back of your head.

Zagg for my Iphone

The best screen protector yet, $20 @ bestbuy but well worth it compared to hard plastic ones. This one is soft and flexible and has to dry overnight. Lifetime warranty you have to register on their site. Make sure you get a heavy duty hard case for you iphone as to prevent the screen from shattering. I found one at Target by Griffin that also has a belt clip/stand. The clip comes off so it is not as bulky.
Since AT&T service has been getting lousy again I've installed the app mark the spot to report problems to them. I just hope they follow through and fix it.

Online Remote Backup Service for Desktops and Laptops

Online Remote Backup Service for Desktops and Laptops
I've tweaked the website page for the desktop and laptop Fast Backup. We have also create two new unlimited plans a basic unlimited and unlimited plus where we replicate the users data to a second data center facility. If one data center is down via redirection servers the end user can backup or restore from the second data center. Our software also has an option for continuous data protection which most of the online backup services do not offer.

Server backup page updated with new service features

I've updated the page with our new service offering. I also found out that Internap, who we use for three of our data centers is now SAS 70 Type II compliant.
We are very excited about the new features we are offering. We now replicate all backup data to a second data center for our customers. If one of the data centers go down data will be backed up and recoverable from secondary facility. Continuous data protection is now an option for both Pro/server and the desktop client.
We now offer client software for Linux, Unix, Novell, and Mac. You can choose from four Data Centers to backup to Internap New York City, 365main/Internap Oakland, Internap Houston, Your Colo Columbus, Ohio which uses Internap flow control.

Our online backup system is ready fo relaunch

We've rebuilt Columbus and Houston and have added data centers in New York and the Bay Area San Fran/Oakland. We have plans to roll out Sydney, London, Chicago, LA, Miami, and Atlanta next year. We plan to use Internap and Internap partner data centers or data centers that use Internap flow control technology. All data centers must be tier 3+ design.
We've deployed a cluster of three backup servers in each city plus replication and redirector servers. All data is stored on RAID6 storage area netorks. Our backup software works with all versions of windows and includes agents for Exchange server and SQL. We also have client software for Mac and Linux.
Since storage and SANS have come way down in price we are passing this savings.

500gigs compressed and replicated to second data center $199

100gigs compressed and replicated to 2nd data center $89

For smaller/home users 40 gigs replicated $12 plenty of room for iTunes Better quality and cheaper than our competitors
