Sometimes I wonder if anyone, in the entire history of computing, has every bothered to read and consider the contents of a typical End User License Agreement (EULA). Some Product Manager, I suppose (though truthfully, I’m not even sure of this one). The EULA, however, is important....

BYOD was arguably the biggest buzz word of 2012 and is now an unstoppable, user-driven wave which will continue to make a major impact on the IT world in 2013 and beyond. Smartphones, tablets and laptops all come under this category, as well as desktop PCs used remotely from home. BYO...
Yesterday’s WSJ.com video “Tablet Wars: How Are People Using Tablets?” had a shocking statistic: 98% of the web traffic from tablets comes from Apple’s iPad. Further, most of mobile commerce is from Apple’s iPhone. Translation: No matter what the sales figures for Android, people jus...
This book is a great addition to my collection of Mac how to books. I like this one because it steps over the line into the more technical side of Mac features than most of the Mountain Lion guide books do. The book is broken down into seven parts. I have listed the parts below along ...
Close to 70% of smartphone owners plan to use the devices for holiday shopping, according to Deloitte (pdf). Smartphone ownership has jumped from 39.7% last year to 46.1% this year and tablet owners have doubled from 10.5% to 22.4% according to 9,000 shoppers surveyed by BIGinsught. ...

The Austin City Limits Music Festival kicks off this afternoon, featuring great bands like The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, The Roots and Black Keys. Our offices are only a few blocks north of the festival, so I'm heading down to the park as soon as I wrap up for the day. While ...
It seems that everywhere you go these days, the little Wi-Fi icon on your mobile device lights up to show that an access point is nearby. In fact, The Wireless Broadband Alliance predicts that the number of public Wi-Fi hotspots globally will grow more than fourfold, to 5.8 million, by...
A key point that Microsoft makes in their Virtual Desktop Infrastructure materials is that IT architecture is evolving from device-centric to user-centric approaches. Fundamentally this means increased portability and mobility of your apps and data across multiple devices, and it’s an...
My wife and I are going to do something we have never done before. We are going to get up early on Friday morning and drive to our local (everything is local in Boise) Apple store so we can report on the silly crowds standing in line to get the new iPhone 5. If by chance we happen to...

A huge uproar has resounded throughout the internet the past few days, Apple is now worth more than $620B, the largest cash value in US history (not accounting for inflation both IBM and Microsoft have been worth more given inflation on given days). However, in an era in which most tec...

As the day dawned and stock markets opened, Apple shares went up by $16 to $647 and made it the most valuable company worth $623 billion. It beat its next rival Exxon Mobile. Towards the end of 1999, Microsoft was worth $616B, but its value now is $257B, less than half of Apple’s valu...
For the past couple of months we have been working on a really exciting project. We are re-creating the Tiggzi app builder in HTML5 and JavaScript. The current version is pretty slick and many people ask us if that’s JavaScript, but all you need to do is to right-click and you wi...
In my former career as the CEO of a mobile application company, I remember my professional services team coming into my office one day and asking me to buy licenses of an MDM (mobile device management) solution from a vendor called Soti. My team wanted to be able to troubleshoot new mo...
Apple just got in touch with us regarding the removal of the YouTube app in the latest beta of iOS 6, and while it wouldn’t say much, it did confirm the obvious: it’s not there for a reason. The licensing deal it had with Google “has ended, but users can still use YouTube via the Safar...
Mobile is the fastest growing advertising segment (up 60.9 percent worldwide in 2011, PQ Media), but accounts for only one percent of total ad-spend. Even that low percentage represents $2.6 billion this year in the US alone (eMarketer). Brands are fed up with standard ad banners, pre...
To recap quickly, in the first article we discussed the fact that 2012 is THE year for apps and how those who put on their ‘Appreneur’ hats on & take action will find success. Then in the second article, we talked about a theory that we referred to as 3D Internet that follows what we c...
If you look over at TechCrunch today, they have an interesting article on how the largest carrier in Russia is fighting with Apple to get a reasonably priced iPhone for their market. Current smartphone penetration in Russia is only estimated at 15%; however, that number is expected to...

In my opinion, Microsoft blew it when they left the rugged mobile device manufacturers hanging for years with no meaningful upgrades or upgrade path to the Windows Mobile 6.5x operating system. They sentenced the ruggedized device industry to compete against the iPhone, iPad and Andro...
There is absolutely nothing on earth more delightful, more anticipatory, more scintillating than unwrapping a new product from Apple. It’s like Christmas, New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July all rolled into one. The rising action as you remove the plastic, the exclamation off awe as y...
I am not an Information Security expert – I am the Lead Designer at Hurricane Labs. I do not know the detailed best practices of securing a network or how to set up a SIEM such as Splunk. You may be asking yourself, “Why the heck is this guy even writing an article on a blog about Info...
When did you last hear Apple being sued for issuing ads that were “fundamentally and designedly false and misleading”? That is what happened to SIRI which is the first major innovation coming from “post-Steve Jobs” Apple. Suit filed by Frank Fazio alleges that Apple is in violation of...
So far, we have we discussed the fact that 2012 is the golden year for apps and how ‘by the end of 2012, app users will start to become app creators,’ and well, how that’s already happening. Then in my last article, we talked about a theory that we referred to as 3D Internet that follo...
Mobile management and security vendor Good released its quarterly device activations report. The report states that iOS dominate Android four to one in the enterprise. This is in spite of Android devices having an equal or slightly larger market share compared to iPhone. Is it because...

Overuse tends to a suck a phrase of meaning, and the same may be said of “collaboration”. As an executive, you’ve probably been inundated with articles on “collaboration software” and its business possibilities. But it seems to mean different things at different times. Sometimes it mea...
For the past two years I have been predicting that M2M (machine to machine) communications will eventually become important and ultimately merge with enterprise mobility. Why? Both involve remote and often mobile sources of data coming into the enterprise. A few weeks ago, SAP made ...

Has Apple, by filing so many patent / IPR violation suits against Samsung in so many countries, marked Samsung as its equal? For those of you who read Harry Potter, here is the parallel. Remember the prophecy? … “…The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches…Born to th...
In my last post, I discussed how 2012 is the golden year for apps. And how many missed the boat when the Internet was the hot spot, and how many are seeing the opportunity that mobile apps are presenting now. I shared the prediction that I made in December 2011 that ‘by the end of 2012...
