Flogs, which offers a shared calendar and digital organizer system, went through another round of funding recently. They had already received €2M VC funding from Lost Boys, Media Republic and Guerilla Games. The VC, who I have not been able to identify, has delayed the capital injection which Flogs currently needs. The VC cited the “current economic climate” as reason for the delay.
For Flogs, who are in their second year and have yet to turn a profit, this has meant that the purse strings are being pulled tight, which means they are losing some of their current staff.
Flogs are still looking for developers: Jobs @ Flogs
Michiel Mol, known for his Spyker Formula One team, is creating a new service called Flogs. Flogs is an iCal service, which integrates into Google Calendar, Apple’s iCal and can even send updates to the CrackBerry. The service is similar to iCal World, although the former includes exclusive data which is tailored to the user.
I’m wondering what the business model is, possibly advertising.
I had a discussion this afternoon with a friend, she said that it would probably take a week to explore all of the googleverse. I obviously disagreed and said it would probably take closer to a month.
I was having trouble with synchronizing my CrackBerry and my calendar, and wanted to use some application to sync it, and I found Google Sync for your BlackBerry phone. Somehow it seems that Google uses something different for connecting to the Internet over all their applications. Both the GMail and the Google Calendar applications give me network not available, I have a similar problem with Opera Mini and FaceBook. Yet my GTalk works. AFAIK it’s something with http(s) connections.
I decided against reverse engineering.
- Google Sync for your BlackBerry phone
- Google Maps for your phone
- Gmail for your mobile browser
- Other Google Mobile Apps.
I have trouble remembering to do things, like going to the gym, and when I do I generally procrastinate, like hanging up the washing. *stops writing blog and goes to hang up the washing* For myself I set alarms, calendar items and reminders, for me it’s easier to remember things I do daily than anything I do on an irregular basis.
So imagine my joy when I read How to Maintain Not-Quite-Daily Habits. The article contains 5 pieces of advise to make it easier to keep your habits:
- Make it daily anyway
- Use placeholder habits
- Chain Habits
- Make specific commitments
- Turn habits into appointments
Another thing I have in the house are whiteboards, they aren’t just for developing ideas and giving presentations, but also as handy reminder pads.
I can’t remember where I got this, possibly from LifeHacker.
