An iPhone Flow

posted by DL Byron on July 31, 2007

I spent lots of time adapting iPhone into my workflow and was going to write this massively awesome post on it, and then I read Jeffrey’s post … Since then I discovered, via OSXhints, that you can accept Outlook invites directly in Apple’s Mail. That was my last hold out, as most of our clients use Exchange. Well, who knew, at least I didn’t know, that you could toggle “previous alternative” and “next alternative” (under View > Message in Mail.app) to turn an invite from Outlook to iCal and vice versa. (geez, had I known, I would’ve switched earlier, like a year ago).

With that new found ability, the transition is made and I’m running Mail with IMAP and iPhone, syncing it all up, into a flow. Like Jeffrey wrote, I’m not organizing the email into 3 folders deep. Instead I act on it, Smart Mailbox it, apply rules to it, save project related messages, and the rest is deleted into the ether.

In the Financial Times

posted by DL Byron on July 06, 2007

I was cleaning up my inbox, preparing for the great email sync with the iPhone and found an email from a Financial Times reporter and pinged her to see if the article ever ran and it did … in April! Titled, the power of business blogging, the article discusses how blogs are used as a way of communicating and collaborating internally. Anil and I are both quoted.

Better late then never to discover that Textura Design is in the Financial Times and also well timed with the Dreamliner roll out this weekend. Maybe just a small role in a plane development program, but blogs did help get that plane out the door.

The Buddha Machine

posted by DL Byron on July 05, 2007

Spending a few days with the iPhone, admiring it’s technology, fit and finish, reminded me of the Buddha Machine and how it’s “defiantly rough around the edges.”
