YouTube sensation Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox have tackled a new challenge – bringing Alex Cornell’s hit “I’m On Hold” to our users in a new way. In September 2012, one of our co-founders, Alex Cornell, wrote our featured UberConference hold song, aptly titled “I’m On Hold”. The song quickly resonated with our customers and appeared in publications all over the web ranging from TechCrunch to Fast Company to the Wall Street Journal. We asked arranging genius, Scott Bradlee, to rework the song in as many styles possible. The results of their efforts completely surpassed our expectations, and — we hope — will end hold waiting boredom once and for all.

Proving that everything new can be old again, pianist Scott Bradlee has become a viral pop sensation after creating a series of clips for YouTube that finds him and his ad hoc group Postmodern Jukebox reworking 21st century pop hits in a variety of vintage styles — transforming Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” into a ’50s-style doo wop number, giving Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” a ’20s jazz accent, crossing Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” with Irish folk music, and showing how Ke$ha’s “Die Young” would work as a classic country tune.

As Bradlee wrote on his website, “My goal with Postmodern Jukebox is to get my audience to think of songs not as rigid, ephemeral objects, but like malleable globs of Silly Putty. Songs can be twisted, shaped, and altered without losing their identities — just as we grow, age, and expire without losing ours.” When not busy with his Postmodern Jukebox sessions and live appearances, Bradlee also served as musical director for the “immersive theater” project Sleep No More.

The new technology track for Google Apps Partner Program provides customers with apps to help them run their businesses more efficiently, and as an early partner, UberConference is  recognized for its richly collaborative service.

This partnership means that we will be provided with technical, marketing and sales support to bring UberConference to a larger audience, and we are proud to announce that our first month of collaboration has been wildly successful.

Just four weeks ago, we announced our integration with Google Hangouts. Since launching the new Hangout App on February 6, UberConference has seen more than 100,000 customer installs and over 80,000 Hangouts with UberConference in just the first month.

“We’re excited about the new tech tracks for Google Apps Partner Program, which we anticipate will make our efforts more productive, give us even greater recognition as a top partner and accelerate our joint momentum with customers,” said UberConference CEO Craig Walker.

“We’re thrilled to add Zendesk, Esna and UberConference to the Cloud Alliance,” said David Politis, Chairman of the Alliance and CEO of founding member, BetterCloud. “These companies are three of the most dynamic players in this space and we’re confident their contributions to the Alliance will help to further our agenda of advocating for Google Apps specifically and cloud technology in general.”

Google Apps has 5 million businesses as customers, including 66% of the Top 50 startups, and 72 of the Top 100 Universities.

The Google Apps software marketplace has exploded recently. Although there are hundreds of apps in the Google Apps store, a select group of trusted independent software vendors formed the Cloud Alliance, to serve the unique needs of I.T. administrators and Google Apps end-users.

In addition to key whitepapers on Google Apps administration and product demos, the Cloud Alliance website contains webinar replays and the First Annual Benchmark Report For Google Apps. It’s a must-have for any company that’s gone Google, or is even considering it.
