Most large companies have employee directories on their intranet, and most of them have two things in common: the database entries are typically out of date, and the subpar search functionality justsucks. Professional social network LinkedIn hopes its new Lookup app, launching today, will solve this problem – allowing you to search for people in your own company even if you’re not connected to them on LinkedIn.

The software also supports video files shot with RED, GoPro, and DSLR cameras. Unfortunately, the latest update will delete all the content from users’ existing Condition One app.

Smartphones are good for many things, especially for personal information management. If you deal with business cards a lot, you probably discovered specialized apps that let you scan any business card to effortlessly create a contact entry in your iPhone. The App Store is a home to dozens of those, such as Business Card Reader for iPhone from Shape Services.
Most of them being paid, today their makers face a dangerous competitor: The hugely popular LinkedIn social network for business pros. The company today announced a re-launch of its free iPhone app titled CardMunch. As a result, their old app will no longer be supported.
The newly launched CardMunch program can digitize printed business cards and turn them into a digital representation, just like similar offerings on the App Store. Unlike other programs, CardMunch automatically links scanned cards to LinkedIn profiles:
By using the new CardMunch app, you now have access to deeper and richer information about the person behind the card — via the LinkedIn profile — who you know in common, where they’ve worked, where they went to school, and much, much more!
