The first 24 hours:
So far, so good. I have little to no problem doing everything I need to do online. I know I am lucky that the company uses Web-based Outlook, so this is all easer for me.
The biggest problem I have had is Twitter. It is all but useless to me with out a desktop app. I did not realize how much I relied on the features of the desktop Twitter clients I used. I follow about 400 people and have about 550 following me, so not a lot. Even with that amount, I am sure I am missing things that I would love to have seen as they pass in the timeline.
The next thing I have seen is that online storage can be expensive. For me, using DropBox’s free version is just great, but I do not put a lot of documents out there. If you are someone who uses video or audio and images, the speed and size of storing it all online is out of this world.
The biggest feedback I have gotten is about the angle of the videos. Well, I think we have that fixed in this one.
Thanks for reading, and keep up the feedback.
