    Long time poster on other Blogs but just joined TiPB - good stuff!

    I come with a shameless plug for an Application I recently made called iAdviseMe. It basically is an tool that helps IT folks get all of their IT advisories on their iPhone. Being an IT guys myself, I thought this could be useful to other IT Pros. Here is a link to the App so you can check it yourself. I appreciate the time and feedback! Screen Shots below for what it would look like if you checked out the Cisco section.

    Not an IT person, but looks like a good way to centralize all the info together instead of having to go to each location. Any way to scrape these sites and put all the info into the application without having to load the webpage? Just an idea.

    Yes, that is possible but not all IT guys will want all the news, this way they can just hit what they need. I'm also looking for feedback to add more as needed. These are just the ones I thought of to start but have already been getting great suggestions for version 1.1 - like yours!

    Nice to see you again dmack. It's been a while. Like tuna stated your app looks nice but I am clueless as to what exactly it does.

    iAdviseMe is a tool that will allow you to get the latest up-to-date software security advisories right to your iPhone. This application will provide you important IT security alerts and advisories that will help keep you current on a majority of enterprise information technology hardware and software vulnerabilities. iAdviseMes information is updated by the manufacturers themselves, as well as vulnerability experts such as CERT.org. You can be sure the information you are getting is always precise and current. Features include alerts with summaries containing direct links to the original site for more detailed information, as well as support for the 3G iPhones accelerometer so you can rotate your iPhone and iAdviseMe will rotate along with it. We will always be adding more manufacturers to make iAdviseMes content rich and relevant. Feel free to email us with suggestions to add or remove content that you think is relevant to you and other IT Professionals.

    This could have come in handy today with the latest 911 MSFT Advisory: MS08-067: Vulnerability in Server service could allow remote code execution Right on the first feed!

    Awesome! I'll take a look with our IT department on Monday and let you know if anyone has any ideas.

    My dream app, however, would ping servers, alert me if they go down (don't respond), and let me ssh in to (try and) fix them.

    Meta like checking security, patch level, general info, services up/down etc. would be gravy, but not sure how reliably that would work, and how securely such info could be transmitted yet.
