Looking for an app, ideas wanted, or tell me if you've looked and it doesn't exist:

I don't like how most apps handle calendar reminders. I want an app that looks at your existing calendar(s), and allows for configurable reminders. I want a "wake me up" reminder for some, but not all meetings. Wake me up means vibrate, repeating, separate sound from other events, customize snoozing, certain color light, etc. Maybe look at the information in the cal item (is it work versus personal, is it from a favorite contact etc) to make the decision on what kind of reminder to use.

Touchdown (exchange client) does a pretty good job of this, and I paid for it. But it's showing its age a bit, and their pace of innovation has slowed down of late. Also, it's Exchange only, so can't help with other calendars.

Anybody seen something that does some or all of this? If not, maybe I'll try and make it happen myself, because I think it's a useful idea.

This could dovetail nicely into the Google Now app.

What are your favorite features in Splunk 6? I'll go first with: data models. I love the concept of effectively applying a schema to your unstructured and poly-structured data which can be reused in a modular way that's unlike anything else. Plus you can accelerate a data model, so knowledge objects based on them transparently benefit from massive speed increases. These enable the pivot feature which has its own laundry list of good stuff.
 
FYI, Splunk 6.0 released today, with a major interface revamp...
In Splunk 6, charts and timelines no longer use Flash, which means all the real-time and historical monitoring and analysis you love in Splunk is now available on your mobile device or anything that runs a web browser. Go ahead, use Splunk anytime, anywhere.

Just for the sake of completeness, let me paste a reply that I just sent to a guy who asked about this video and what appeared to be a glaring hole in security. 

This isn't a hack or a security vulnerability. We've visited the topic quite a bit on the podcast, actually. We've had Dave Kennedy on the show twice, and Lee Holmes from Microsoft who does all their security stuff for the PowerShell team. This is a topic which I'm pretty familiar with, and like to bring up from time to time on the show.

There is a huge caveat which needs to be highlighted. They include it in the video, even if you didn't realize the significance. Everything in this session is talking about a "post-exploitation scenario". In other words, once you have ALREADY pwnd the box (and can literally do anything), then you can use PowerShell to do things that security geeks find cool. PowerShell isn't a security vulnerability. It can be used as a tool for good or for evil. Specifically, they are delving into the idea of PowerShell as an execution vector to save them some time and work in getting malicious code past an antivirus tool where you already have the ability to execute an arbitrary process. You could also write a plain old batch script to disable the antivirus engine, and then copy an .exe from your FTP server, and run it that way.

Flashed a new ROM to my phone, and that led to a tiny bit of renewed interest in +Google+

For those curious, +Android Open Kang Project happened to my Galaxy S3. (Side note, I do not recommend the PAC Man ROM).
