Oh, I'm not going to go on a long rant about the closed walled world of Apple. The iphone is great. I loved mine... until Android finally matured with the Nexus One. Then it's been Android for me, and many others.
These are the current choices of phones I would consider.
Seems 2014 is the year where we talk about Personal Branding and Online Identity. Being online since basically the beginning (1992, with ftp server access in the 80's), my identity is pretty spread out across the web.
What does it matter?
I've started to put my recent photos online at a different site. I thought it was more effecient to put the photos on a site dedicated to photo albums, with backups.
Otherwise, I'd be caught in the endless cycle of installing/updating gallery software on this site. Such a pain. And this way, with the images at SmugMug, people can buy copies if they want for some reason.
Social Media, Online Profiles, blah blah blah.
It all just means more work for everyone, with info spread out all over the place. The best way to handle this is to have one place that has all the info you want updated and shared, and then point all the online profiles to that one place.
It helps if you have your own personal web address, but you can also use something like Google Plus or LinkedIn. Benefits of LinkedIn is that you can think of it as your professional resume. And with Google Plus, you can have all your contact info shared with just the people you want shared with, and they will always have the contact info updated.
So... slowly, I will add known online profiles of myself, Brian Shea. It's not narcissistic, it's simply monitoring.
