Lotus to integrate Windows media into Notes

Future versions of Lotus Development's Notes and Domino software will include Microsoft's Windows Media Technologies, the company recently announced.

The reason Lotus decided to integrate Microsoft streaming media software is simple: "It's primarily because customers asked for it," said Cliff Reeves, Lotus vice president of product management. Lotus currently integrates RealNetworks streaming-media software into Notes and Domino, and so figured it should also offer Microsoft's product as well because it is used by a lot of Lotus customers, he added.

The Microsoft software will be offered in various integration levels for end users, developers and content authors, Reeves said. Pricing information has not yet been announced and neither have specific release dates, although he said that the integration will be included in either the next R/5 maintenance update or the one after that.

"It's imminent," Reeves said of the release.

The software will be integrated using IBM's HotMedia Connect technology.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
