Hosting your domain on Google services

OK, so some of you may have known this but has been around for a loooooong time.  My buddy Bill and I came up with the name and over the years it has lived in many locations.... (even a gigantor server in my bedroom that sounded like a plane.

Well, as soon as Google started letting other domains host their email services through them I have had Intrasection hosted there.  Better spam protection and better kid protection.  Boy did Joshua Morrison LOOOOOVE to flip that big old red switch.

Well speed up to a few weeks ago, Intrasetion got Google "+" ified.  And all kind of bells and whistles started going off.

Now, from my phone, I can put into my calendar (Pick Phil up from Airport).  I can put in a 30 min warning notification, I can even put an estimated travel time when I invite my lovely wife to the meeting invitation...

Then in a few seconds (since my account is the admin of the domain) I see (in a different color) my wife's calendar entry.  Tap on it, click "Accept" and poof, her phone will remind her to do something that I might forget to ask when I am physically close enough to ask her about it.

Kind of cool I must say....

Plex Cloud Sync

All the Plexy goodness in the cloud!!!!!  No more dealing with the fact that my home upstream limit buffers too much.  Now I just need to get more cloud space..  Or start the cloud shuffle.

Hard resetting a Galaxy S4

Just what you want to do on the morning of a day of travel.  NOT
I installed the wrong combination of apps aparently and my phone was NOT happy.  So, this morning I pulled out the battery and did the Vol up + Home + Power trick (after putting the battery back in of course).  And did a factory wipe.  Now we shall see how good this whole cloud thing is...

I had just gotten everything where it was working the way I liked it too...  What does that mean?

Oh and if you need a video, here is one.
