Boingo, GigSky, XCom: Why my Europe Connectivity was Awesome

April 23, 2014

A while back, I had a chance to go to MWC (news and analysis) in Barcelona, Spain and like many of you who travel internationally, I was concerned about my cellular bill as I enjoy the relative generosity of multigigabyte 4G data plans in the US. In Europe however the costs can grow quickly. When headed overseas, Verizon charges $25 per 100 MB of data. As many US devices are locked, it becomes a hassle to bypass such restrictions with multiple devices and a bevy of SIM cards.

Intel Buys Way into Tablets While $99 may be Microsoft Sweet Spot

April 16, 2014

Intel recently reported earnings and the takeaway is the company is going to focus more on Android and ramp up subsidies to get into more OEM tablet designs in Asia and elsewhere.

Intel said that its Windows tablets are shipping in numbers which barely register in their quarterly numbers. Obviously this isn't a positive development. To put this in perspective, out of the five-million processors the chip behemoth shipped for tablets, as little as 10% were for Windows. It seems many analysts are convinced that for Windows devices to be successful, they need keyboards and to some extent this makes sense as tablets are typically described as consumption devices.

Camera-Phone Opportunity Exists for Samsung

April 14, 2014

There exists an opportunity for a superior camera with 10x or greater zoom coupled with the traditional things we are used to on a phone like Instagram and Facebook support. Note, last year's Samsung's Galaxy S4 Zoom camera-phone went too far... You don't want to hold a big clunky camera to your face. The point is, if you are going to sell a camera that zooms, then it will be a data only device.

Tomorrow is Purchase Google Glass Day!

April 14, 2014

If you are a wearable tech fan, tomorrow is a big day as you will finally be able to (if you are lucky) get ahold of Google Glass for yourself. Talk about a great way to ease the pain of tax day and a way to spend your refund - with one simple activity.

The predictions for wearable computing growth have been off the charts  and every company it seems wants to be the leader in designing the next generation of computing device. Will Glass be one of the ways we communicate with technology going forward?

Drones are Huge at NAB 2014

April 8, 2014

Here at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas the show is awash in cameras, lenses, mounts and talk of 4K but what I found most fascinating were the hundred-plus drones on display. They also seemed to capture much of the attention from attendees at the show. Of special note was the fact that drones were being sold by companies with huge booths as well as the smallest of the small. The point is the cost to make a drone is fairly low and reselling OEM drones is also fairly easy to do.

The Urban Drone Wars Continue

April 8, 2014

Two months ago I warned of the coming urban drone wars and I was 100% sure I was spot-on with my predictions about the future. My worst frears have come true today as just 20 miles or so from TMC's Norwalk, CT HQ, someone was arrested for trying to fly a drone with a bomb on it into a school and federal building. The implications are massive. Policing in two-dimensions with metal detectors doesn't help when we live in a world with three-dimensional threats!

Why Google and Apple Should Fear the new Microsoft

April 4, 2014

In decades of covering Microsoft, I don’t recall the company enjoying so much positive press at one time. They are literally transforming before our eyes – at least from the outside looking in. The first salvo has to be Office for iPad which I must admit is better than I expected. I have used Microsoft Word for many hours since its launch and although it is missing a bunch of features and has at least one bug which I discovered relating to the “paste as” icon not disappearing, it has a solid spell-check engine and works adequately.

New Extreme Networks Solutions Aim to be Simple, Fast and Smart

April 3, 2014

The traditional networking market is in an interesting place to occupy as recently, Juniper announced layoffs and recently Cisco announced it is making a major investment in the cloud space. At a high level does this mean the networking market is losing steam and will see less innovation?

Not according to Bob Noel, Senior Director, Solutions Marketing at Extreme Networks.

Emerging Threats IQRisk Query An Essential Security Tool

April 3, 2014

About a year ago, I shared there are 250,000 plus new pieces of malware being produced each day. Moreover, I explained how Emerging Threats thinks they can help with the problem. If there is one constant, it is that number – 250,000 new pieces of malware are still being detected daily by the company according to Ken Gramley, CEO.
