Florida Sunrise

You will find that I am a huge fan of the sun rising or setting. In all my travels, I leave with at least a hundred shots of the sun, the clouds and their dance. It makes the colors of everything change, sometimes the change is surreal, but it is always fantastic. This sun is a Florida springtime sunrise taken over the ocean in Ft. Lauderdale. Might be nice to spend some time there right now. Cheers.

TRIF.COM, Software You Can Mold

That's right. It is a symbol of pure creativity. With PlayDoh, you can create most anything you like. Mold it into any shape, any How PlayDoh is Like trif.comdesign, it is limited to imagination and purpose. TRI software is no different, it can be molded into any shape, any design and it too is only limited by imagination and purpose.

You might want to spend a bit more time planning TRI software than you do playing with PlayDoh, or you may want to sit down with a designer or even a programmer and just begin to create. But the experience can be just as fun and more rewarding!

If your application is unique, it might be very beneficial to create your software specific to your needs rather than pigeon hole your needs to a packaged software solution. It isn't always the best way, but it always produces what you want. It is all part of improving value to your customer or your organization. Better software should correspond to better data, better reporting, faster results, improved training and uniform usage.

If you have questions or would like to play with some trif.com PlayDoh, send an email to playdoh@trif.com and one of our molding professionals will take care of you!

Sync Photos without iTunes via WiFi

If you are like me, you take a lot of pictures with your phone, camera and other devices and often want to combine on your iPad. PhotoSyncYou usually place your pictures in your iTunes folders so iTunes can see them and when you sync your device, your pictures will update to your device and vice versa. Well that can often be more work than its worth. So usually, I just forget it. The problem also occurs if you have a large video you want to move to your iPad. Without iTunes, it is really difficult. Unless you download an App for $1.99 called PhotoSync. It will work on your iPhone or iPad. It has a free runtime for your PC or your MAC.

Here is the great thing. It really works. I had a 350mb video that I wanted to play on my iPad. I was at the office which is not where I synch my iPad with iTunes. I installed the PhotSync App and downloaded the runtime on my PC. After I ran the PhotoSync tool on my PC, it created a drop window for me to drop files that I wanted on my iPad. I dropped the 350mb video and within a few minutes, I was viewing the movie on my iPad.

It is a pleasure to use tools that really work. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Link between your Camera and your iPad

Apple has provided a quick and easy way to get pictures from your camera into your iPad (or iPhone) without dumping the images onto your iPad SD card readercomputer and performing an iTunes sync. Just plug this little guy into your iPad and plug your SD Card into it. The iPad will recognize the SD Card immediately and display a light box of all the pictures. You can import them all or click on specific pictures to import selectively. It saves time and is perfect for reviewing your pictures on a great preview screen before you move locations.

For just under $30, you receive two devices, an SD Card reader and a USB connector. So you could connect a memory stick with images on it to your iPad and upload them. In my camera bag, this is a necessity I carry at all times. This is available at your Apple Store, on-line or at Target.
