Flirtation Creations Inc, premier online design and iPhone development company, has announced the launch of its Consulting Services Division SYNERT. The divisions team will be responsible for helping customers meet the demands of their unique environments through expert consulting strategies.

SYNERT professional services include several helpful solutions:
Information Technology
Synert offers the full range of consulting services, from strategic IT consulting and systems integration to outsourcing and training. We work with our clients to significantly improve productivity and reduce costs by applying the right mix of services.
Our flexible consultative approach guarantees that short-term or long-term, onsite or offsite, we can provide the professional resources you need. No matter what your staffing or IT challenge, Synert’s consulting services help you get the most out of your resources.
Data Protection
Data protection impacts on all businesses. All businesses must comply with data protection law which means respecting privacy and confidentiality as well as ensuring the security of personal information.
Privacy continues to be a significant business issue. It challenges organizations from a number of perspectives, including business risk, compliance, brand and reputation. Synert can help an organization effectively manage the business risk and compliance issues relating to data privacy.

CIO Advisory
Synert provides a service we call CIO Advisory Services to our small to medium sized clients. In general, this offering provides the client with world class CIO talent, experience and expertise at a fraction of the cost of a high powered, full time CIO. Small and medium sized businesses cannot afford a high-priced CIO, nor do they need one on the payroll full-time. Unfortunately, all businesses need the kind of technology leadership and direction provided by a CIO caliber resource.
M&A due-diligence
Knowing what they need and how they need it-and being able to produce it with the required time frame-are often less-well defined in the negotiations.
Getting over the goal post in an acquisition goes beyond the identification of the right target and establishing the means to make it happen. Being able to provide the type and depth of information-in the format most expedient-ensures lenders and acquirers have everything they need.
Collaboration
Organizations find it nearly impossible to possess the capacity and range of capabilities to meet all possible demands placed on them. By making available a wide variety of IT specialists who understand our clients’ operational issues, Integrasys can complement their skills. In doing so, we enable our clients to concentrate on their core activities and decrease the need to invest in peripheral skills and capacity.
Synert’s Collaboration Consulting Services bring together an extremely rich set of skills and experience-tuned perspectives.
Social Networking & Media
Yesterday’s chat room has been replaced by something much more powerful. Sites like MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter allow everyday people to interact with, influence, and impact potentially millions of others. And whether bad or good, news travels fast.
Understanding Social Media
* Markets are conversations.
* Markets consist of human beings, not demographic sectors.
* Conversations among human beings sound human. They are conducted in a human voice.

Google Analytics Dashboard – A Powerful WordPress Traffic Monitoring Plugin

Posted by: Flirtation Creations  /  Category: Google, Internet, Technology, Web Design, Web Development, WordPress

Are you running a WordPress blog? One very important aspect of the blogger’s job is to keep track of his web traffic. It is good to know how many visitors you have and whether that number is climbing or tanking.
It’s also good to know as much as you can about your visitors. Where did they come from? What are they reading on your site or blog? What kind of changes do you need to make in order to get, keep, or grow that readership? If you want more reasons to analyze your traffic, check out 7 reasons why your website won’t last without analytics.
Many people reach for one of the most powerful tools out there to do the work for them. That tool is Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is probably the most popular traffic analyzing tool there is for webmasters and bloggers.
Sometimes it can become a pain signing into Google Analytics to see what’s going on. One way to save some time is by setting up email reports. Another option you have is to use a WordPress traffic monitoring plugin that gives you the traffic analysis right in your WordPress dashboard.
What if you could have the best of both worlds? What you want is the power of Google Analytics with the convenience of a dashboard widget.
Well, let me show you the Google Analytics Website Dashboard WordPress plugin. I think it can be the answer and can give you the power and convenience that you want.
Setting Up Google Analytics Website Dashboard
The plugin is hosted on the WordPress plugin site. That makes downloading and installing it a breeze from within your WordPress dashboard. Just head over to the Manage Plugins section and click “Add New.” Run a search for “Google Analytics Dashboard.” It should show up as the top result but make sure it is the one by Carson McDonald.
Once you activate the plugin, you will find a Google Analytics Dashboard option in the settings menu. Just head over there and sign in with your Google Analytics account and choose the profile to display.
That’s about all there is to installing it.
The WordPress Traffic Monitoring Plugin
Head to the dashboard and have a look at the Google Analytics widget you have just installed. You should see the graph displaying the visits you’ve had for the past month. This should give you a good overall look at how your traffic has been doing.
You’ll also notice some other information including number of visits, pageviews, and pages per visit. I also like the fact that it shows the tops posts, referrers and the top searches. This gives some good basic information about what’s been popular recently.
Analytics Information For Pages & Posts
Head on over to either the pages or posts section of your WordPress backend and you’ll see some stats for each page or post on the list. The plugin actually adds a column called “Analytics” and makes the pageview/exit/unique visitor stats very accessible.
The Google Analytics WordPress traffic monitoring plugin doesn’t show all of the data Google Analytics has to offer (visit Google Analytics for more in-depth information). I think the power of the plugin lies in its ability to save you a trip to Google’s site by displaying just the basics.

Apple Bites the Hand That Feeds it with New App Rules

Posted by: Flirtation Creations  /  Category: Adobe, App Development, App Store, Apple Inc, Applications, Developer, iPad, iPhone, iPhone OS, iPod Touch, Technology

Apple has not been shy about publicizing its culture war with Adobe over the use of Flash on the iPhone or iPad platforms. Yesterday, Apple took the battle to a new level, though, by changing the legalese for the App Store to prohibit any apps not built solely on Apple’s proprietary Objective-C programming language.
Apple has not been shy about publicizing its culture war with Adobe over the use of Flash on the iPhone or iPad platforms. Yesterday, Apple took the battle to a new level, though, by changing the legalese for the App Store to prohibit any apps not built solely on Apple’s proprietary Objective-C programming language.
The new iPhone Developer Program License Agreement includes the following text: “3.3.1–Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs. Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs (e.g., Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited).”
This is essentially checkmate in the chess match between Apple and Adobe (ADBE). However, checkmate comes at the end of a well-played match as a result of superior strategy and tactics. Apple’s move is more equivalent to throwing a tantrum, taking your chess board, and going home.
I understand this strategy. I see it on a regular basis in games between my young children and their friends. All of the kids can be playing with a ball and having fun, but if the other kids won’t play the game that the owner of the ball wants to play, or if the owner of the ball is not winning, that child will simply storm off and take the ball home with them.
It is effective, but there are no real winners. And, I am not sure how well the immature toddler tantrum translates as a business strategy. Ultimately, Apple’s decision to slam the door on alternate development platforms limits the potential capabilities of iPhone and iPad apps, and increases the effort developers need to invest in order to provide the same app across multiple platforms.
By banning Adobe, Apple may be biting the hand that feeds it, though. Apple and Adobe have had a symbiotic relationship that has been mutually beneficial. The Mac computer has always been perceived as a superior platform for graphic arts and design, and Adobe has provided the fuel to drive that engine with products like Photoshop and Illustrator.
Adobe is set to release CS5–its flagship Creative Suite product–next week. One of the key features of the new software is Adobe’s Flash-to-iPhone compiler that enables developers to create an application in Flash, then package it for use on the iPhone–circumventing Apple’s lack of Flash support.
While restricting development to the Objective-C programming language effectively blocks Adobe’s flanking maneuver, and arguably helps Apple maintain the stability and consistency of apps with a minimum of effort, it also hinders what developers can achieve.
Facebook’s Joe Hewitt stated via Twitter “I’m upset because frankly I think Objective-C is mediocre and was excited about using other languages to make iPhone development fun again.”
Setting those considerations aside, Apple’s war with Adobe puts developers in a tough spot as well. Apple has managed to establish itself as the de facto App Store–meaning that it is virtually a requirement to at least create an app for the iPhone and iPad, but it is not the only platform.
Developers want tools that allow them to develop an app once, and repackage or redistribute it across multiple platforms such as Android, Windows Mobile, WebOS, PC, etc. Flash is fairly ubiquitous, so developers could create an app in Flash that would work across most platforms, then use the Flash-to-iPhone compiler to port it to the iPhone and voila!
Unfortunately, those compiled apps won’t ever see the Apple App Store because they violate the new rules. So, developers will have to create one app for the iPhone and iPad, and then develop the same app all over again for other platforms.
The move by Apple seems petty. There may be some benefit to Apple, but Adobe, app developers, and ultimately iPhone and iPad users all suffer as a consequence.

iPhone SDK 3.2 gone gold

Posted by: Flirtation Creations  /  Category: App Development, App Store, Apple Inc, Applications, Developer, iPad, iPhone, iPhone OS, iPod Touch

No, this has nothing to do with the Olympics or World Championships, but it is of equal importance to those who live and breathe Apple – paying members of Apple’s iPhone Developer Program can now access the Gold Master seed of the iPhone SDK for OS 3.2. What is the big hoo-ha for this, you ask? Well, for the uninitiated, this would be the maiden version of the operating system that offers support for the iPad that looks set to take the world (or at least, North America) by storm. Guess with this, we could be looking at a flurry of iPad apps coming our way sooner rather than later.
