Who is this person ?

I was playing the other day with Lotus Notes Live Text feature, which was heavily discussed in Lotus blogosphere. All you need is some curiosity.. Using a simple built-in Lotus Notes wizard, I created a live text action, that highlights every email address ( with a dotted blue line. Double click and a new browser tab opens within my Lotus Notes application, pasting the email in the ‘Search for’ field, changing the ‘Search type’ to ‘Internet address’, and submitting the request.

The final result: a profile page of the person behind the email address. Another simple way how Lotus Notes 8.0.1 can improve collaboration across your business. And it’s not an ‘Enterprise’ solution… Even if your company employs 100 people – do you know every one of them?

The beer canon

Amazing how lazy one can get.. This next guy, who seems pretty normal btw, sat one day at home, watching some game on TV, when suddenly his beer ran out. He could get up to the kitchen, fetch himself another one, but he though – No. I want the beer to come to me. So, he built a beer canon (yes, a canon), can connects somehow to a little frig, and shoots out beer cans.. I am not sure how many people would buy this new gadget, but I think the inventor can rest easy – there will be enough lazy people willing to pay $1500 for the “privilege” of not getting off their sofa..

Long story short, watch this next video:
