Has Twitter Lost it’s Power? Eh… No!

The is a lot of fodder flying around the blogosphere after Neilson’s report on Twitter Retention.  I think the study was a bit flawed and needed a bit more foundation on real people not just numbers.

My chime in on the conversation as posted on Linkedin.com Twitter Group:

As with any new from of communication there will always be those that dont get it. This was true, of email, pagers, cellphones and blogs. All of the aforementioned are very pervasive now and are just common vernacular today.

Twitter has bot the power and the buzz to be the next household communications word.

You may not get it now but than you may not be trying to get it because there is no immediate upside for you business today, don’t let this get you out of the conversation.  Todays memetic behaviors of consumers often spread faster than the swine flu when the right catalyst hits.  Twitter is just waiting one of these catalyst. ie: @AplusK and @CNN battle and @oprah

My advise hang in there, just start communicating with people, network, look around but don’t try to sell yet, when the damn burst you’ll be there.  Keep the big white Motorola Cellphone in the back of your mind thinking of the days when we all said who the heck needs to be that ready to use a phone… my god that thing is huge… cellphones “I don’t get it…

Best thumbnails ever

We designed Evernote for Mac to be a visual memory aide, and easy-to-scan thumbnails are a big part of the fun. We’ve completely redesigned the thumbnails in this release to make them easier to use and prettier to look at. The thumbnails now have different shapes based on the content of your notes; adding a new dimension to your visual memory. They now also sport badges to quickly indicate and identify file attachments. These new thumbnails are available in both Thumbnail and Mixed views.

Other visual enhancements

  • Visual update to left-hand navigation
  • Improved the search explanation menu alignment
  • Improved Mixed View thumbnails and text layout
  • Updated look for the Monthly Usage meter

There are also a bunch of bug fixes, as well as support for the “audio/amr” file type for both free and premium accounts. If you already have Evernote for Mac installed, just check for updates and grab the new version. You can also download it from here.

For all of you Evernote for Windows users out there, do not fear. There are some exciting updates coming your way soon.

Samsung ships single-chip 32GB flash

Samsung today said it has started shipping a 32GB version of its all-in-one moviNAND flash memory. The technology uses a very small, dense 30 nanometer (nm) manufacturing process to stack eight 4GB memory chips together along with a built-in controller chip and an MMC interface to connect it to the rest of a device. Samsung claims the process stores twice as much data as a similar package built using 40nm assembly.
The Korean company says the same technology will be available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB versions. It doesn’t name prices or customers, but does say the new moviNAND is meant primarily for “high-end phones” and other handheld devices that need a large amount of storage for games and videos without significantly increasing their size.

While no connection is made to Apple, the company has been one of Samsung’s more significant customers and is rumored to be using Samsung memory for the next iPhone alongside flash from Toshiba.

Removing the ability to DM yourself, and in so doing stopping many of you from feeling foolish.

Updating the list of URL shortening services to the top 5 only and adding the Digg URL shortener.

Making it easier to tab between the tweet box and the shorten box.
