From the Blogosphere

In the past few weeks, bloggers from BetaNews, Gizmodo and TechCrunch have ripped apart the Galaxy Note (and devices like it). You can find their posts here (1, 2, and 3). They have gotten slammed in the comment sections, but I am feeling the need to pile on a bit. Here’s my problem w...
Welcome to Enterprise Mobility Asia News Weekly, an online newsl...
Hybrid tools try to resolve the debate of … “Should you write a mobile web application which will render on multiple platforms without significant change but won’t be able to take advantage on native features?” Or “Should you create platform specific native application to fully util...
On the day the iPad 3 was released, I decided to pick up a new mobile device of my own – not an iPad, not an Android, but a Kindle, and not even a Kindle Fire. No, I haven’t shunned disruptive technology and become a Luddite. I got a device already half a year old, less expensive than ...
The butcher, the banker, the drummer… everyone can create apps, and so many are saying, ‘why not?!’ and giving it shot. Everyday people all over the world from all different backgrounds are going beyond simply being an app consumer to being an app creator. A fundamental change in powe...
Over the last week I have seen a number of tweets and blog postings that have brought to everyone attention the fact that, Mobile App demand is being eagerly supplied by the growing Mobile Developer Community. I have seen this over the last few years by attending some local Mobile Deve...
I noticed a very interesting tweet this morning from Nick McQuire of IDC, in which he states that IDC Research Predicts European MEAP Market Growth in 2012, even over the rise in 2011. This is fueled by the increase in Mobile Application investments... "IT teams need more efficient and...

An iPhone or a Smartphone can be a wonderful thing. You can do…well, darn near anything with it…including record for posterity any event within eye-range or should I say, I-range. Unless you want to become famous (or infamous), don’t lose your temper at the check-out stand or yell at y...
I recently wrote an article examining the basic offerings of Apple, Google, and Amazon, and hypothesized that they were all building ecosystems to get consumers locked in to one ecosystem or another. Here is another post in that series, this time looking at the Apple ecosystem. Apple...
These days, apps aren’t just about amazingly addictive games like Angry Birds or streaming your favorite tunes from your Grooveshark app. As the working world becomes increasingly mobile, apps are becoming an important aspect of doing our jobs in better, simpler ways. To be fair, we’ve...
While it makes sense to take a strategic approach towards collaboration software, as a tool which will have far reaching effects on how a business operates, oftentimes, businesses opt for collaboration software in response to an immediate problem. This is a first of a series of informa...
With his passing just six weeks after stepping away from his role as CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs has made Wednesday, October 5th, 2011, one of those days that many of us will remember for the rest of our lives - a day when someone whose shining brilliance and persistence brought him victo...
Every analyst is discussing how Amazon’s Kindle Fire going to affect Apple. They are discussing, why it is going to be the first real competition for iPad – how at US$ 199, it is a killer pricing – Why Apple might launch a 7 inch rival – Why 7 inch is not a viable Tablet – Why Kindle F...
If you have have done native mobile app development on Android or iPhone (iOS) then you probably know that testing native apps is not that simple. On the other hand, testing traditional Web applications is pretty straightforward: Launch a Web browser, and you see exactly how the applic...
This past weekend, I was live on Blog Talk Radio to talk more about the lessons of Steve Jobs departure, Jeff Bridges’ album tanking, and the philosophy that “ALL Business is Show Business.” Listen in — and I hope you enjoy! (ONE MORE THING — as Steve Jobs would say — I want to start...
Nobody else in the history of business has achieved what Steve Jobs has achieved as a CEO. He has taken Apple from its death bed (in 1997 it was dying) and made it the most valuable company on earth. Nobody else in history could launch a product the way Steve Jobs could do. Each of hi...
I’ve been using Steve Jobs and Apple as examples in my software blog dedicated to the creation of Great Software. Although Steve Jobs is thought of as being the Mac/iPhone/iPad/iPod guy, he’s also a software hero. At least he’s one of my software heroes. Steve Jobs’ Apple doesn’t just...
On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, Steve Jobs resigned from Apple as its CEO. He will stay as chairman of the board, handing over the CEO mantle to Tim Cook. Even though this was sort of expected ever since Steve went on his medical leave early this year, the news of his resignation came a...
Perhaps the ultimate adage in show business is, “Leave ‘em wanting more.” As a professional speaker for the better part of three decades, the constant reminder is it is “better to stop too early than too late.” And, this afternoon, Steve Jobs showed he knows that all business is show...
Remember the great scene in classic movie, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” between King Arthur and the Black Knight? Wanting to pass over a bridge protected by the Black Knight, Arthur compliments him, then asks the Knight to join Arthur’s quest. When the Black Knight tells Arthur t...
iCloud is great news iCloud is great news for the cloud industry as a whole. As everyone knows, the genius of Steve Jobs is to show everyone the importance of “sexy” in technology (for lack of a better word) – take an existing technology, and make it so compelling, s...
If you have answered China then you are almost certainly wrong! It will be India. In fact, we may not have to wait till the end of 2012. India is likely to surpass China by middle of 2012. May 2011 statistics say China = 896 million subscribers against India = 840 million subscribers ...
The cloud hype machine is well and truly in full swing these days; it seems every tech company out there is telling you they are in the cloud and their products are cloud-based. A lot of that is marketing spin - cloud is the buzzword that people want to be associated with at the moment...
The US State Department on Monday said that it has ordered some non-essential US embassy officials in Damascus and all embassy dependents to leave Syria because of the "uncertainty and volatility" in the country. On Wednesday Bloomberg reported that "Turkey considers it likely that Syr...

We should all know by now that devices such as Smartphones/Converged Mobile Devices, should have a lock code set and a code that is not a simple short code, as its your first line of defence. In fact iOS users with iOS4 should be aware that its more than this, as that code is used in t...
The way corporations operate around mobile devices is currently shifting — employees are starting to use their own devices for business purposes, rather than company-owned devices. With no direct control of the endpoints, IT departments have generally had to prohibit this or risk insec...
The purpose of an usher, be it at an old time movie theater or a wedding, is to take people to suitable seats and see that they’re comfortable. The purpose of a bouncer is to throw out bums and keep the peace. These two words conjure pictures in your head of similar folks, but their fu...
Steve Jobs thinks in terms of industrial design, and he is a perfectionist. Sculley says this in the interview, and his opinion is hardly revelatory. Steve first described his fascination with industrial design in an interview with Playboy magazine years ago, where he mentioned Europea...
