Quick Plaxo update
May 8, 2007
Whew, there’s a whole lot of stuff going on at Plaxo. Here’s a recap:
- We launched LinkedIn import to Plaxo – People have been asking us to do some integration with LinkedIn for a long time; we’ve finally gotten around to starting that work. Hopefully it’ll be even tighter soon! (btw, there’s a Lunch 2.0 @ LinkedIn next week, RSVP and come on by for free food!)
- Got Plaxo working for Thunderbird 2.0
- Launced Plaxo Labs, where we’ve got a whole bunch of new stuff for people to check out.
- Our Comcast partnership was announced! Yes, that’s right, we are going to be powering the address book for Comcast. (btw, if you’re currently a Plaxo member and a Comcast High Speed Internet subscriber, you can get Plaxo Premium for free by going here)
One of my personal favorite labs features is Plaxo Search. Basically, you sign-in (check “Remember me on this computer” if you’re on a personal machine) and you get a Google-like interface to search for anything you have in your Plaxo account. You can also hook it up to your browser’s search box in the top right (if you have IE7 or Firefox). It looks like this:
Give it a try; it’s the fastest way to get access to your contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes by far!
