Is anything like this out there or can it be pieced together?
Background: I run a small business, strictly local, and selectively targeted to nearby Senior Citizens. I go to their homes and audio-record their spoken memoir. The recording is then transferred to a CD they can distribute.
I want to reach them and promote my service via email, but an email that goes beyond the standard capability ofemail.
How this hypothetical service/application would work:
Ideally, it has a “people search” capability to find the right sort of email addresses;
The email consists of text, photos, and an “embedded” audio file. Overall, it looks like and functions like, say, the “Welcome” page of a web site. That is, the recipient would learn about my service. And, by clicking a “button” in the email, can immediately play a 20 minute audio-description of how their own spoken memoir would be made.
As a supplement to this “button”, there would be another one to request a physical CD copy of the 20 minute audio file (snail mailed to them), and another “button” to simply email me directly.
I realize that it may be a major technical issue to combine what an email and web site can do. Nevertheless, there probably are a lot of businesses that would like to take advantage of the basic capabilities I’ve outlined.
Is it something you guys can do? What do you think?
It's past time over six years, and FIOS Internet (not even higher speed DSL) is available to all of mid sized Camarillo, CA
specifically 3905 Via Rosal street which has over 300 homes, yet Fios is in surrounding neighborhoods. It's time to offer it on this street, (Just because your customer service rep says it hasn't been requested by enough residents, doesn't mean people do not want it, we just haven't had the offer made to us, many don't know how to request you get it done.
I've requested it every year for six years FIOS has been in Camarillo.
It's time and please let me and our neighborhood know you are connecting us.
1) Have an option to watch a live show without conflict alerts popping up. Make it on the record button. i.e., If I am watching a football game, I can choose to record it - triggering a prompt to ask me which conflicting scheduled recordings to cancel
2) Include an option to override and existing recording on a DVR rather than automatically recording to another DVR if there is a conflict for a new recording.
Add a Verizon Media Manager Board to the community. Since Flex View, and much of the Media features are being managed by the software, it seems only fitting to add a board for it. This would bring up more discussions, and perhaps promote its use. I know I have tried it, used it and ran into one issue or another. I believe there should be a place to highlight the product and support it. It is a PC software product and has postings buried here or there on the FiOS TV Technical Assistance board or elsewhere.
I live in Elk Grove, CA and I have Frontier my download is 6 to 7 and my upload is .6! not even 1! I know verizon would make alot of money comming to this area because everyone is sick of this internet. Just wanted to put this out if they ever read it. To come down to Elk Grove to sell there internet services.

This is primarily for VZ guys in R&D and future product development ideas. My idea is to fully leverage the ability of FiOS data by allowing a new customer to either go with one of the regular data plans, or to connect to a family member's FiOS connection already established w./ either a 100Mbps FDX or a 1Gbps FDX link. The customer already paying for FiOS internet will get bumped up to the max internet speed available, currently 50/20 Mbps(9/1/10). The new customer will share that bandwidth, but also have full access to the existing customer's internal LAN resources, and vice versa, as though it is their own LAN. In essence a residential version of a SONET. Allow up to say 5 customer point to point connections like this, and each customer shares an equal cost in monthly service. If say there are 2 customers then the cost is split 50/50, each customer pays half of the total cost for each other. I'm sure you guys over there can figure something better out, but nothing metered, the same flat rate we see now for HSI/FiOS Internet connections, just obviously a bit higher in cost, and force a say 4-8 year aggreement. People need to learn commitment and not random cancellations because it's cheaper elsewhere, and understand the uniqueness of this service. The new customer adding service over the ResSONET will simply get a 10/100 or 10/100/1000 network switch, since that's all that will be needed for them, since the other pre-existing customer will handle DHCP on their LAN, you can also give both customers the option who will serve as network backbone of all the locations involved.
This as far as I'm concerned is much better than VPN, since it is quicker and easier for the customer to configure, and it's also secure, remaining on the FiOS network, and of course way faster, since the locations involved are getting local LAN speeds to each other's network resources, instead of internet bandwidth.
Verizon should add the Winamp Player widget to play the MP3s Uploaded in the library. The Winamp Player also has over 50K radio stations way better than Pandora. Many radio stations play thousands of songs not available on Pandora. Pandora is great but it plays too many mainstream artist. Shoutcast has lots of underground artists in all genres.
In addition, the Winamp player also plays MP4 videos.
With flat screen TV's in and CRT's out, I believe that it is time for our service provider to provide an interface with dimensions comparable to the TV's we use and often mount on wall space. A shallow, wall mountable unit that is no more than 4" deep would be appropriate.
If that is not feasible (it should be, if cellphones now have the capabilities of a typical 10 year old desk box.), then how about moving from infrared to RF remotes and boxes?(The the boxes, even if not smaller, could be hidden some distance from the set and installed at a variety of orientations, since they would not require visual contact with the remote.)
Or why not provide wireless connectivity between receivers and TV's?
There is no way of mounting current boxes without installing an unsightly deep shelf and unsightly exposed wiring.
Given how long it has taken Verizon to launch a Media Server (announced last May - still no updates) it is getting harder and harder with a MDVR for it to be useful -
It would be awesome if when I hit record series on the MDVR a message would come up like " Please note , this series will be availble on ABC OnDemand , do you still want to record the series" that way I know that I dont have to record it and can choose to watch it On Demand - once the Media Server comes out this problem goes away - but I find it annoying that if I want to record 2 shows at the same time that I can't watch the ball game at the same time -
Even with the Media Server (when is it COMING!) this would still be a great feature -
I think there should be a way to delete all email messages at once. The way the system works now, you have to manually click each box or you can click the top box to highlight all of the emails on one page, but I literally have thousands of emails that I don't have time to sit there and delete and go through all of the pages. This would be great!
