    #33 Thanks, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. A meet & greet in NYC is a great idea. I know what you mean about the cold in PA. You have great live buzzes of your locale. Here's one in case others missed it: https://www.bebee.com/content/941954/902854 . I bet this park is even more beautiful in the snow!

    Nice video, glad you were able to meet up with @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood @Michele Williams! I would attend a Bee Meet & greet in NYC! I only live about 7 hrs or less from NYC. Michele, I probably would have been dressed like you, I live about an hour and a half SE of Erie Pa.

    #17 @Irene Hackett, that's a good point. The connection between social media and face-to-face on bBee is unique. When I was in SF last May, I didn't stop by linkedin. Of course, @Juan Imaz ans @Javier 🐝 beBee did and took pictures to prove it! Here's a trip down memory lane: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/sec2sv-startup-europe-comes-to-silicon-valley

    #23 I have a Toshiba laptop that is 6 yrs old. I bought the extended warranty when I purchased it. The hard drive went kaput in a year and a half. Toshiba replaced it for free under the warranty. I bought a new HP laptop because I wanted a larger display. I was going to sell the Toshiba but decided to keep it for when I travel. I downloaded the Win10 update and all is well. I feel I have a reliable backup laptop, just in case. I run Edge, Chrome and Firefox on all of our computers but I prefer Firefox.

    #24 The whole basis of disruptive innovation is for new entrants to fill a space which the big player has left open, so that fits well with a no-frills approach, but reputation for quality is a design gamble because that reputation is proven over time. The Built to Last frame applied to the dotcom boom when most startups planned on being acquired by a big name player, which is called Built to Flip http://www.jimcollins.com/article_topics/articles/built-to-flip.html - ultimately maker mentality needs to be greater than marketing mentality - and as more people hear about design thinking and maker movement http://time.com/104210/maker-faire-maker-movement/ - perhaps the future may shift more to customer focused quality determination than the shallowness of product focused hype.

    #23 Ironically enough, I still use my 2004 Fujitsu XP laptop, although I did take it off the internet, so it is for writing only.

    I cannot stand the obsolescence craze. I had my first 2 phones for 6 and 7 years each. This last android stopped functioning optimally a few weeks after it was paid for, which is why I can't create live buzzes.

    There is a real opportunity for a company to build lasting electronics - and for just good enough software - 97% of users only need Word97. Quite a large majority just want their computers to work and would pay for the security of them working rather than for flashy new stuff.

    #21 Hi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich & @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman - the good news is that I originally thought it was my operating system at fault, until @Mamen 🐝 Delgado mentioned that the video does not play on Safari.

    I bought my IBM laptop back in 2004 and I saw no reason to to ditch my laptop which is testimony to the quality IBM applied - but that means that for last two years I have maintained Windows XP, so that is probably the constraint on my Firefox (which is up-to date).

    When Lenovo acquired the IBM Thinkpad brand in 2005 I wonder how many Lenovo's I would have had to replace - because whatever and whenever I buy a new laptop - I guarantee no manufacture dares to build a product that can last over 12 years. I am sure obsolescence is now built into machines - just as Microsoft need users like me to upgrade quickly.

    It also shows me that 64bit on Windows 10 is just an insane amount of luxury that to date I have not missed out on - though I realize the days are now numbered in how long I can continue to use Windows XP and a part from the odd script errors - it is cute and nostalgic to still be on 32bit.

    The fact that Google Chrome works OK, means I no longer miss out on beBee video buzzes. I will sad to retire my tried and trusted IBM laptop and 12 years for a laptop is triple a life-time in dog years.

    #18 @CityVP Manjit - they always play on firefox on my win7 desktop - if you are on a phone, I will be no help, but if you are on a pc, we can compare settings.... I would be lost without my @Andrew 🐝 Goldman pep talks!

    Ah! These video buzzes do work on Chrome, but I am a Firefox loyalist - so the day these video buzzes work with Firefox is a day I look forward to - I love my Firefox compared to Google, like I love my beBee compared to LinkedIn. Thanks @Mamen 🐝 Delgado

    You know, people like to talk badly about this facility. But I have to say it is stunning, functional and an amazing addition to Lower Manhattan. It's a fitting way to give the middle finger to the terrorists who took down the WTC on that spot. In America we are builders and I am thrilled to hear it was a Spanish Architect who did it! The design is brilliant. I shall tour you around next visit since much has changed since you were last here. The problem with the facility is the government / union control of the construction which went billions over budget.. They should have let Trump build it. He builds on time and under budget; HAHAHA

    Thanks for the awesome Live Buzz, Virag. I'm all nostalgic as a native NYer with friends and relatives scattered throughout Brooklyn. Your enthusiasm, energy and positivity shines and is uplifting. Moreover, you're a great beBee spokeswoman, being so telegenic and articulate -- especially for younger generations who can help grow membership due to growing demographics. Looking forward to more Live Buzzes from you. Keep up the great work!
