Its over… iPad is the only choice.

I have completed the triple double geek. I just made a VoIP call that hunted down the service manager (calling their desk, cellphone, and home) while listening to the “Tron” Soundtrack via Napster and practicing my fruit ninja critical hits. Did I mention I was using a bluetooth headset?
This machine is awesome. I cannot contain myself. I have to get developers license for this machine. The sky is the limit. I hear ADP already has an API. I truly believe this machine can do everything.
Take my free advice, login to Ebay and get one. A used 16GB wifi only will do. The second version of iPad will release soon, so don’t spend more then $500. Computers, Laptops and Netbooks are a waste of money, unless you plan on sitting in a chair (not a great money maker).
This thing is going to free us much like the cellphone did.


Digital Dealer 9

Boy Vegas is fun. Could you imagine selling cars via social networking here? This place is alive with lights and wifi. My phone battery almost melted this week. It is a good thing I had my iPads to back me up.

I found much of the information repetitious to DD8. I saw a toned down sales pitch, but still much of the same sales pitch. I understand that in order to produce a great show you need money. Michael Roscoe, and his team, has created such an awesome following and a better show. Round tables are still key to the entire meeting. Off site round tables with karaoke and booze is best. FirstLookSolutions.com should provide booze at the Round tables next year. Again, thank you.

Piecing it all this together is difficult. Let us say you bought everything! Even from the Big Three DMS guys. After a 90 trial, who would you keep? That is where you should spend your money. Custom Web Designers are the greatest. They keep your site fresh, and it is created by talent. Canned sites are floppy and stale. Custom designers are also best because they can add your widgets (bells and whistles). Hire good people and you will get good results. Hire a corporation, and get corporation results.

Video Video Video. Auto Trader was re-tweeted the most saying “You Need Video.” But how? Video to me is a lot like blogging. I watch YouTube to laugh during my lunch hour. http://www.RappingHamsters.com is brilliant. I was shocked and amazed by the creativity. My wife and I love Swagger Wagon, and I can recite it. It is supposed to be fun. So make it fun. Don’t buy a flip camera! Buy a top of the line cellphone. The best cellphone can Text, Tweet, Blog, Facebook, YouTube and Call people using a High End SmartPhone. HD2, EVO, iP4 are my top picks.

Best Presentations: Tim Jennings, Josh Muller and ADP’s very own Jessica and Paula’s Rendition of “Don’t Stop Believing.” You two should remake “We are ADP.”

George Bailey and Henry Potter used social networking

It has occurred to me that this social networking is not new. There is just new technology. Back in the day, 1947, there were people. And people knew people. Many times they were friends. You could count on each other recommending another friend. This network was usually limited to the distance your car could go on one tank of gas. George Bailey from “It’s a Wonderful Life” used social networking to help friends. George was honest and everyone knew it.

Henry Potter was also into social networking. Elite social network helped him control the peasants of his ghettos. His tool was a telephone. His social network was much larger and could crush George at anytime. If George had a better network, Henry would not have been able to push him around.

Today, the level of information at each person’s fingertips could easily bring Mr. Potter to his… chair. The invention of social networking is as old as flame. The marriage of Technology and “word-of-mouth” created this phenomenon. We all know everything, faster then we can decipher it.
