Learn how web browsing habits are changing among BYODers in the enterprise and why a strategy shift may be in order to accommodate for this change.
Enterprise mobility promises to play a huge role in 2013. Learn which technologies are on the rise that will help your company manage the top trends in the new year.

On my smartphone, I have applications for managing my tasks, appointments and documents, creating my shopping lists, a flashlight, games and quizzes, videos, educational tools for my little one, etc. Recently, based on my colleague’s recommendation, I downloaded another app Beat the Traffic for easing my commute to the office.

Greetings from 35,000 feet over the United States. As I sit here with my Android tablet playing a movie (The Social Network, of course) and my iPad on my lap, I can't help but thinking about last night watching Tron Legacy with my kids.
