How will smartwatches, Google Glass and other wearable mobile technology impact the enterprise mobility management strategies of tomorrow?
Last week, RIM announced plans to greatly expand the application options and abilities for the BlackBerry PlayBook which is scheduled to launch in the U.S. and Canada on April 19th. The BlackBerry PlayBook is RIM’s answer to the tablet. It is expected to be in direct competition with the iPad and iPad 2 as well as Android powered tablets. The PlayBook will run on a new operating system, the BlackBerry Tablet OS based on QNX Neutrino. The tablet has been surrounded with a lot of hype since it’s announcement back in September. So far it is receiving positive reviews. If you already have a BlackBerry smartphone, you are able to wirelessly connect to the PlayBook for real time access to Email, calendar, address book, task list and BBM. The PlayBook has a 7” LCD display, 1 GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. It allows high speed connections for 3G network access using your BlackBerry smartphone as a modem as well as 4G network access available on the BlackBerry 4G PlayBook tablet as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.
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. They called it the Grid and whether you call it the Grid, the Net, the Web, or the Cloud I am constantly amazed at what we've created.
I recently went to my doctor to investigate something that was troubling me. Believe it or not, several times a minute I feel a short vibration or buzz in my heart area. It has been happening for 3- 4 weeks and, until late last week, I did not realize it was actually my heart. I had dismissed it for weeks thinking it was my breathing, vibrations in the floor of my office, and, yes, my BlackBerry.
Here we go again. Is “7” Microsoft’s lucky number? Maybe “10” is the lucky number (as in 2010). Anyway you look at it, 2010 would appear to be Microsoft’s year and “7” is the theme.
Yesterday I walked into the office building and knew something was just not right. Not many lights on. Once I entered the second floor things got worse. I noticed the emergency lighting. Now, this was more of an inconvenience as once my laptop battery ran out (which felt like 20 minutes), I needed to relocate to an open conference room which contain generator-fed outlets. After working in the conference room for 47 minutes, I was interrupted by our security officer stating that the building needed to be evacuated as the building’s emergency lights were out of juice and the power company was not able to provide an accurate time for the final resolution. Although we had power, from our generators, we don’t own the building. So out we went!
A With government pumping hundreds of billions into the U.S. economy this year and last in an attempt to save the country from total economic disaster, more and more people are asking where and how that money is being spent. An article in the Washington Post last week outlines the problem the Obama administration “tech-savvy as it is,” according to Rep. Brad Miller (D-N.C.), will have ensuring transparency.
Unlike the CNN coverage of the sweating CEOs from the Big Three automakers, the real death-blow to the auto industry was not a Made-for-TV event.
