These post is a remark how to get all the contacts you have synced in a proper way without any extra cost or service . The only part its not that easy and not sure if it will stay for free for ever so the early bird pics the nice corn :-) . I write this as most as a smal path to remmber for the hours traying to sync and claer up all my contacts .Pleas read carefully to the end before you start .
1.) BAKUP ALL Contacts from Google contacts , Adressbook and Iphone separate on a save place
so if something goes wrong you can get back to previous status
2.) Sync Google Iphone Adressbook
Google to iPhone via ActiveSync = My Contacts
Google to Address Book via iSync = All Contacts
The mention was to get my contacts synced over multiple computer and Iphone everywhere with any device in this case Ipone was new in the chain and the change from Outlook to MAC Adressbook . The tools here noted are used ALL together to make the best mix as there is not one tool how due all the jobs .Just a little inspiration for the Developer .
What sources and Social networks i would like to hold in sync .The Idea give me the Tweetdeck witch manage all social platform with one interface like Twitter LinkedIN ,Facebook and Myspace. As Filmmaker needs fast access to a huge list of connects during there production it is a must to have your filmmaker and crew contacts up to-date and in your pocket all time .
Google Contact as a central Email and Contact Storage .Email used for many years now as they have the best spam and virus protektion as it wash and there is no need for me to run a virus or spam software on my Computer .Google will filter tht for me .
Iphone Contacts Sync with Exchange
For the one that dont have a exchange server in there compny and a Admin who setup all for them this is rocking nice as you can setup your Iphone with google to work as a Exchange server .
What that mean is you add a Contact or Calendar entry in Google Contact Calendar on your desktop favourite Browser and it will be in your iphone in minutes .
How to start setup
Add a new Service in Prefernces in Iphone ,dont add Google mail Add Exchange fill in your account details and passwords and don’t forget to allow PUSH . Take care about your Data plan with your Provider ,if you are in a City Area mostly you even dont need one .As there are many free Acces points on every corner in Vienna at least .[Freenet]
For the one need a more details description take a look at Stephen Fosket Blogs
Email Pop or IMAP for Iphone
It depends how you use your phone but the email idea is that you use the IMAP service what means when you delet a Email or move it to a other folder like Jobs it will move on the Google Server to. If you acitenly delted onee mail you still can find it in the Trash Folder there for a time you specify one week one month .
Is a tool to Sync Apple Adressbook with your Gmail Contacts .Yes i know the standard Isync will due that to but not with the profil photos .Even the standard version works quite good and you can backup sync many more devices with that application .It can take a while if you have many contacts.
As Facebook dont allow you to export data from there Platfrom they still going to open up more and more .The Facebook Conect was just one of the first steps to make the platform more open mindet to other web developer and websites .Thats probably why they allow the Application Google Contact Sync to compare your Contacts in google with the one on Facebook if it finds a match it will sync the Photo to your google account ,And later on when you setup the steps before correctly on your Iphone too . I just wonder why he have only 150 Fans with these great App (i tray all other too)
You ever asked yourself where are my Facebook Friends ? As its a husle to click thrue all your Friends on Facebook there is a fast way to see them all in one page. Several Apps over syncing the Photo with your Adressbook and Iphone.
For a short Name Birthday list of your Friends
Go to Event on the left APPLICATIONS ->EVENTS ->Birthdays open all the months there are all friends on one page with birthdays and age ,the named links contain there Facebook ID if you ever lost one or dont remember them by name .
Xing Backup and Google SyncAs many Friends of mien use thies network for Business purpose and have contacts there too .It not that easy to merge these contacts with the Mac they dont over a iporter for Mac at the moment .You can go the way to run over a Outlook Installation import the Synced Xing Contacts with the plugin Sync with Outlook with Gmail .What works but not with the pictures (how nasty) Resinc your mac with SyncMat App to get all in your Mac Adress book . Xing Plugin for Outlook more information from the Developer UPDATE Facebook Yahoo Email Backup These is probably the best of all , just shortly discovered that yahoo mail (never used it before ) have a sync with Facebook Friends and the new privacy in Facebook allow 3d party application to to export your email .When you sync Yahoo mail with Facebook Friends you backup too the friends email .Next step just sync with mac Adressbook and all your contacts are happy smiling with Face photo email and other details .That work of course only if the friends had a email and some details in there profile , so mostly biz friends .
The Doublets Problem
It could very fast happen that you get many doublets of contacts in your Adressbook and or Iphone too . The Adressbook from apple over a nice find doublets feature but not Google so it could be needed that you merge and sync several times to get all Contacts in Sync without the nasty doublets .
check the Facebook App for more inforamtion and link i can just highly recomend that as it adds all the missing profiel picutres from your contacts you have already .It can handle multiple tausend contacts and offer auto sugestion if the name of your friend is not written in the same way liek in Facebook.
Before you tray any of these tools don’t to forget to backup your Gmail Iphone and Adressbook contacts on a save place if something would go not as you like you can restore it easily
Additional Mac Sync Tools
Spanning Sync doesn’t support group-to-group contact syncing.
Whatever Address Book contacts you choose to sync, will all end up in
the ‘My Contacts’ list in Google.
Ther is also a tool from the Itunes Store called Friendsync that would due the job ,if you dont have to many contacts .Your MAC is much faster and needs some time ifyou have many tausend contacts over the year for some hunderd it should work
Googaby a tool for Apple Mac user to push information to your google account its not a sync tool .It goes the way that your mac Adressbook holds much richer information than google Contacts . more Googaby FAQ
The MAC Adressbook Sync for Facebook
This new App allow Contact picture Sync from your Adressbook to Facebook Friends .
Facebook to Mac Adressbook Sync by Dan Auclair
http://danauclair.com/addressbooksync/ version 1.4
Iphone Sync Apps
Sync in a Blink
Sync Groups to the Ipone
Google and Adressbook offer the Merge dublet contacts .Thats fine but it could end in a disaster of multiple entrys in the Note field if you Merge multiple times .
At the moment i don’t know any Script that could fix this truncating a huge multiplied Note field information
Smart Sync Iphone App
Comercial app on the Itunes Store make nearly the same sync photos and contact details like phone numbers , but no email will override your friend phone pic if you setup one personally.
GOOGLE Export -> Adressbook Mac CSV Cards
Some how googel dont export the groups information the contact is relatet to .
Adressbook dont offer import in to a Group
So all the hard manual work of sorting your contacts will get lost
This Post is in preperation or will grow some Screenshots in time as i get al the details in words ,just like a movie would slowly grow :-).

Diesen Samstag vereint eines der schönsten Sachen der Welt .
Schmusen für den Weltfrieden ein Flashmob der unerwartet große Wave durch Facebook genommen hat.
Über 4000 zusagen und noch mal 5000 mögliche Flashmob Teilnehmer .
Die möglichen wahrscheinlich auch deshalb da einige noch nicht ganz sicher sind mit wem Sie schmusen wollen. Leider ist Facebook nich so gut geignet für Events dieser größe es unterbindet Ab 5000 personen die Versendung von benachrichtigungen
Was sich bei der Flut an event einladungen es schwierig macht daran zu errinnerm. Das dies keine Normales Event ist zeigt schon das jeder zum Flashmob koen will doch eher wenige auf die Party die dafür noch schnell ins leben gerufen wurde. Auch wenn nur 400 Leute kommen werden ist es ein erfolg bei Grand Central in New york waren gerade mal 300.
Unser Ziel ist es am 28.11.2009 15.00 alle Menschen, die für den Weltfrieden schmusen an einem geheimen öffentlichen Platz zu versammeln.
WO :Vor dem MQ ecke Mariahilfertrasse Museumsqartier
Wann : 15:00
Damit das ganze auch eine witztige errinmerung bleibt werden 5-8 Kameramäner das Event für euch auf youtube verewigen. Mehr Fotos und videos in kuerze hier.
Was genau man sich darunter vorstellen kann sieht man hier …
24 must see flashmobs Lets get Vienna Flashmob on top

Für die bevorstehende 10. Jahrestag von Fight Club hat Fox ein Facebook Connect Integration ähnlich einer Reihe von Implementierungen gestartet. Dies und ein Artikel auf Techcrunch zunächst zu bemerken ist, dass der Regisseur hinter Fight Club, David Fincher, ist auch der Direktor des bevorstehenden Film über Facebook, “The Social Network”.
Also, was ist an dieser Aktion besonders? Es gibt nicht viel abgesehen von der Tatsache, dass es eine promotion für eine äusserst beliebter Film ist. Darüber hinaus nutzt Facebook Connect das Benutzer Foto direkt in der Werbung in ähnlicher Weise wie bei Saw 6 campaign, Shark Week promotion, Prototype game trailer, und Doritos advertisement . An dieser Stelle kann ich sagen, dass die integration für Foto & Film Promotion-Trailer Standard geworden ist für die Verbreitung von Film und deren Marketing Kampagnen.
Es gibt noch einige andere kreative Formen der Identitäts Integration. Doch die Grundidentität Integration an sich ist immer noch ein Novum. Ziehen Sie in ein paar Fotos vom Benutzers Album , Platzieren Sie diese mit einigen Klicks in den Spot und Sie werden sehen der User wird überrascht sein Sich selber in dem Spot wieder zu sehen ! Diese Neuerungen werden in Zukunft nicht nur für Web campagnien genutzt werden sondern auch für klassische TV Spots. Integrationen erfolgen direkt im aktuellen TV-Werbespots und nicht nur auf der Website.
Wenn sie sich wundern wie so eine identity-integrated campaigns ausehen kann schauen Sie sich den Trailer von Fight Club oben an durch die Einbindung des Betrachters wird eine serh hohe akzeptansz erreicht und mit einem hohes Engagement von User Seite kann man dadurch erwarten.

This sweet song remembers i played several time after i found them the guy who make it as a tribute to Vienna Billy Joel found it after a deeper digg into keywords for videos on YouTube.
Its really hard to gain some video related keywords like Vienna as i searched throw there are many artist more popular than the City Vienna . What cross me all time on Twitter Facebook ,My space or even on Second life is “Vienna Teng” a lolvy artist i never hear before but she is dominating the Internet incredible hard.
Hiden Youtube Secrets
YouTube invent the suggestion on the search what is mostly the same like the google suggestion tool .With a little search string you can find how many relevant hits are on your topic .
Tray this string q= is what you are searching for
Most professional TV Cameraman get very view exposure on there Show reel mostly not more than some hundred if there are good ,they forget that a search engine cant see the quality of a video only the keywords .If no one see it you even will get no comments or votes so its like complete useless to post it on YouTube . Some think that its fine just to post on you tube and let it run .
What i want to suggest is make your homework and look a bit deeper about competitors and your special niche where your want to place your video .Many Internet companies offer YouTube Videos too for there clients but when you look at there views 15 or 20 its just money for nothing don’t blame them or yourself .
2 topics i look closer today was the very popular Hausverlosung its a kind of lottery for getting a haus with 100.-€ they build up web pages Facebookgroups to make the marketing .Who successfully are they ? They need to sell a lot of tickets about 10000 and more . they tray to use YouTube videos to embed them on their websites .But the Stats of the Video show the truth . about 3000 visits from the main Page is much to less .
Facebook Groups with less than 100 members one with 300 still not what you need .
The Second was a Company looking for Video Journalist and Videoproducer just take a look by yourself one of Europe leading Web company how they Advert .

This simple you tube movie just show very nice how you can give the user a bit more to interact than just watching or commenting on a video . Interactive videos is a long discussed topic on the Television scene but except on some experimental and artist productions not seen much anymore .With the huge community like Youtube it could work for many brands and even TV Broadcaster to bring some fun in advertisement ,commercials and Live Shows. It don’t have to be all time a huge 35mm shoot to give some additional value for the viewer. Now slowly even the European broadcaster realize that they can use video Portals for more than just promotion or a copy of there TV program. Simple Crowd shoots with linked video for the next level .The Levels and themes are timed to date and time when the TV Show is on air .
Pleas tell me to witch level you make it on these video game .
The video will bring you to the next level on Youtube when you make it and it gets harder on every level . Dont cheat ;-)

Getting too freaky about all the Word press Plugins as a New Word Press user can really kill your blog .As i moved from B2evolution Blog to WordPress there are hundred tausend of nice plugins .
After a short look under the hud i realize that many of them slow down the blog too a speed like 1985 Internet.
My first thought was the Internet host have some problems ,but than i look deeper and take a short moment to think about what is going on on each of this usefully plugins .
Witch Plugins will slow down your WP-Blog
Mostly every plugin that call a external Service Webpage or SQL server will slow your blog down , as its call a service an wait for a response before it can show the content what the plug produce.
Plugins like Light box and versions slow down too as reported on other Blogs .
Can mostly reported as slow or very slow if coming from a external server , how knows where is the server lokatetd how fast are the ping times .Often external calls are blocked from hosts too.
That was the first Plugins i detractive . Normally a Google Analytics account would be more than good.
ADDS and Add Service
As a experiment many Blogs show adds ,but as long you don’t have millions of visitors its mostly not worth to place them on a Blog. I prefer to have a user friendly blog than some nasty adds for Websites i don’t like.
Tray to keep it slim and sportive even if you like all the widgets and Plugins that you can get for wordpress .Last but not least
with all the external Widgets you will lose and share google Page rank too from your Blog.
Any Additional Experience is highly welcome .Learn More
