Love beer? Love Foursquare? Then you need to get on Untappd, a web and mobile social network dedicated exclusively to brewskie lovers. Members get to share what kinds of brews they’re drinking with other beer enthusiasts, as well as show off their drinks and check in to spots.

How long have you been with CX? 16 months.
What is your typical day like? I spend a lot of the day with a phone glued to my ear (need an implant) talking to customers, partners, other industry members and the CX team about the cloud, cloud-related technologies, our products and the direction we’re taking at CX. My role also dictates that I spend a lot of time in aircraft flying around to meet with these interested parties and between our development offices (we’re a very virtual/distributed team). Although I do a fair bit of technical advising internally, I don’t get to code much these days, but am very happy that we’ve been able to hire an awesome team to build our product. (more…)

Days after the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I started on my journey through the game. Video game company Bethesda Softworks once again delivered an amazing gaming experience, which kept me busy for 6 months and more than 100 hours of play time. With so much time invested in developing my character and completing quests, I would sometimes wonder what would happen if my Xbox 360 suddenly experienced the dreaded red ring of death. If for some reason I had a hardware failure or needed to upgrade my gaming platform, it’s very likely I would have had to start my journey through Skyrim over. At the very least, it would have been a challenging task to bring my saved game files to a new device.
PC gamers also experience this same frustration when they own more than one computer. An installed copy on one computer doesn’t share saved game files with a copy on another computer. The same loss of game files happens when a PC is replaced with a newer model, which happens quite often for gamers on the cutting edge. What is needed is a way to automatically back up game files to a safe location and sync with other gaming devices. Cloud storage is the perfect platform to solve this problem. (more…)

Recently, I have been testing out the new build of the CX Android application, which is perfect for online photos. My poor family and friends have put up with my constant photo-taking and video interviews. They have been my unwilling test subjects for the newest feature in our Android app. I am happy to say that CX for Android now provides the option to automatically upload your photos and videos directly to your CX account.
