Despite rumours to the contrary, iPhone users won’t be able to get use a 4G network at any point in the next 14 months. This flies in the face of earlier reports that Apple would be aligning with Verizon to enable Apple to utilise the 4G network. "At some point our business interest...
A heavy book! What would you rather carry on your back — textbooks or lighter than air apps and data? When I went to school (six miles each way in the snow and rain, LOL), every year the books got heavier. Now, students can look forward to easy trips home with courses online — br...
Having used the iPad for three months and on extensive travel, I thought it might be appropriate to provide some thoughts on how it works as a travel device. Device design – There is something about the design that just works.  The device has an excellent form factor that I find easy t...

If you look at Gartner prediction then the question is not “if” but “when”. In October, 2009, they had predicted that Android as a mobile platform will be at the No. 2 slot after Symbian. There are several other indications this is indeed going to happen. This chart is from a presenta...
Sooner or later, every person reaches a point in life when s/he has to make a decision: iPhone or HTC. I’ve arrived to this destination, and the road forks. In early 21st Century people would just Google it up to find the facts, figures and comparison charts. Unfortunately, the noise-...
If Apple's recent patent application tells you anything, its that the giant technology firm is working on further entry into the fitness space. That's something the fitness industry better pay close attention to. As the patent illustration shows on the left, the application includes an...
Oh no! An iPhone that tells you how to drive. That's all I need. The application is called DriveGain and it gives a range of visual and audio feedback on what changes are required by the driver to burn less fuel. I wonder if it uses my father's voice? It works with any petrol or di...
There is something very disturbing about the success of Apple. Many a management guru has talked about the importance of openness, listening to customer and building partnership in fostering innovation. Here are three strongly held beliefs which Apple had been ignoring with impunity. ...

Remember Hamlet and the quote, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks"? While in this case it isn't a lady, the question still applies to Apple's CEO. Steven P. Jobs posted a 1,700-word letter on Apple’s Web site on Thursday, explaining the company’s decision not to allow the multi...
Six months ago I started following Adobe's advancements in the creation of a cross-platform solutions for smart mobile devices. In general, it's nice that finally Adobe realized that it's time to do something about the close to zero penetration of Flash Player in mobile space (I'm talk...

Everyone has known for a while that Apple would soon be coming out with an update to the iPhone OS. We knew it would have some great enhancements for enterprise use, but, since Apple is great at keep secrets, everyone has been waiting with baited breath to see what those enhancements w...
A lot has been said the past couple months about broadband as the fourth utility. The same status as roads, water, and electricity. As an American, the next generation will have broadband network access as an entitlement. But is it enough?
Apple won't kill neither Flash Player nor Adobe. Yes, Steve Jobs is going slightly mad. He goes against all rules in the industry, and there's no logic in his statements. For example, today Apple allowed Opera browser on iPhone violating their own non-compete rule for accepting applic...
Dan Gillmor has a terrific piece that looks at what’s worrisome about the iPad and its fawning embrace by the very media that hope to be saved by it.
# Audio profiles: It would have been nice if the iPhone had different audio profiles for different environments that you could easily switch between. # Flash support in Safari: Yeah, this was a pie-in-the-sky wish, but we know a lot of you out there wanted it. # FM radio: Another one...
In my last article, which set and solved the problems for an On-the-Road Information Worker (Insurance Assessor). I told what Enterprise Mobility could achieve with cool software and hardware.
1. You will end up doing more work... Sitting on the couch at home, in the stands at the kids ball game, checking in from vacation... 2. You will be more productive. Even at work you will get more done while your PC is rebooting, roaming the building(s), during lunch... 3. With Citri...

I got it yesterday at 5PM. The Apple store at the nearby mall was crowded, but at the end of day there were more people in blue shorts (I was told that there were a 100 of them) than c...

On paper, there is nothing particularly special about the Apple iPad, which is scheduled to arrive in retail stores Saturday. Its performance and size are good but not revolutionary. By Apple’s own admission, it’s similar to a netbook — a downsized laptop whose purpose is to run bro...
Even though Microsoft has taken a wait and see attitude towards building a native version of Office for the iPad, there is no need to wait to do real work from the iPad. Citrix Systems has released Citrix Receiver for the iPad 1.0 which can provide anyone the ability to use Microsoft O...
"From my first day at Saatchi & Saatchi," explains Bob Seelert, chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi, "I met with as many people as I possibly could. There is no substitute for a personal presence, I went to four companies in London and then got on a Concorde and did the same in New York befo...

AT&T recently released their Femtocell. This device plugs into your home (or small office) network, and uses your current ISP to provide strong cell coverage. Currently, AT&T and Sprint are the only networks with full on femtocells. T-Mobile has their “Hotspot @ Home” which enables ...
Web 2.0 is as much about integration as it is interactivity. Thus it’s no surprise that an increasing number of organizations are including a feed of their recent Twitter activity on their site. But like any user generated content, and it is user generated after all, there’s a potentia...
Over the weekend, this New York Times article described in detail the battle between Apple and Google in the mobile phone market. It makes a good narrative, like reading an interesting saga of a “friend turning foe”. As the first iPhone came out back in 2005, there was Eric Schmidt ...

Once Again, Steve Jobs Gets His Timing Just About Right with the iPad. Timing is everything. Too early with too little for too few and you lose. That was the fate of the Apple Newton which might be considered the [...]

Despite Google’s successes with Android, iPhone is still the big gorilla, and it is too early to predict whether Android will ever take the lead. So the billion dollars (or downloads) question, is how can Google turn the tables?
Will iPad succeed? We will know the answer to this question in few months time but I would like to put my neck out and apply one of my theories about why such devices succeed example – iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Palm, Walkman etc. For any new device to become very popular ̵...
In mid February, Notion Ink released completed specs on their Adam tablet (here).  It did not receive the attention that Steve Jobs did with the Apple iPad, but in my estimation it is the far superior device.   Apple has the ecosystem to back their products with a large application cat...
