ITEXPO

Nokia, RIM, Skype, Cisco and ITEXPO News August 30, 2010

August 30, 2010

Tech once again has been an amazingly vibrant market in the last week of August when news is generally slow. A recent trend has to do withtechnology companies playing nice with global governments to make sure they aren't rejected or find themselves out of favor like Google happens to be in China.

Nokia Spices up its Servers

Nokia for its part has decided to put servers in India to comply with local laws allowing government officials access to once impenetrable communications systems. You may recall India recently had some issues with not being able to monitor messages sent on Blackberrys.

SkyFire Comes to iPhone

I was a huge fan of SkyFire on Windows Mobile as it approximated the iPhone Safari browser on a Windows Mobile device while also supporting Flash. Now it seems this browser is coming to the iPhone and I wonder if Apple will force the company to disable the Flash support to ensure it abides by the company's rules of not allowing other "programming languages" to run on it.

TMC Communities Continue Growth

Google Gmail VoIP, Cloud Computing and Other News August, 25 2010

August 25, 2010

It's been a busy day in the world of tech news as Google who already has a telecom service in Google Voice has expanded it into Gmail with a two-pronged goal of making it easier to call via Google's network and making the Skype IPO less lucrative. In addition, cloud computing has heated up with Nimbula receiving $15 million dollars so the ex-Amazon founders can purse providing private cloud services.

On the TMC front, we officially released TechZone360, our new site dedicated to all things tech and sporting a new and cool interface we hope you love. My readers got an unauthorized sneak peak last week (thanks for not squealing on me) and you can see it has evolved quite a bit these past days.

ITEXPO West 2010 Update August 24, 2010

August 24, 2010

I have lots of exciting news to report about ITEXPO West 2010 Oct 4-6 in Los Angeles - there will be a total of 12 collocated events at the show. Some of these include, 4GWE, Smart Grid, M2M, CVx, SPEC, Cloud Communications, MSPWorld, SIP Tutorial, VI Peering, App-Time and Lightwave ONE. There is also a Social CRM Expo, MSP World and much more.

I am trying to keep my readers up to date on what is happening in what is probably the most exciting tech week of the year.

MSPWorld, Another Great Reason to Come to ITEXPO

August 23, 2010

ITEXPO has become one of the defacto tech events - starting out as a communications-focused conference it has slowly but surely become an umbrella event encompassing all the exciting segments of technology and communications. Now to put this in perspective, I am a techie - but I don't launch shows because I want you to come and see cool stuff. We have been adding collocated events at ITEXPO because we believe there is potential for the subject matter covered to make or save our delegates money.

We want you to be able to go to a single event and see so much opportunity that you will bring even more people to the next event and so on.

M2M Market to Grow to $18B in 5 Years

August 17, 2010

You may have heard one of the absolute brightest spots in the tech space is the machine to machine or M2M market where analysts believe sales will total $18 billion in the next five years as device totals surge from 75 million to over 225 million.

The M2M Evolution conference is the world's gathering place for information on this market and it will be held concurrently with ITEXPO October 4-6, 2010 in Los Angeles and coincidentally we just announced an important keynote at this event today.

Jeffrey O. Smith, Ph.D. is the Chairman of Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), TR-50 Smart Device Communications Engineering Committee, and Chief Technology Officer of Numerex.

When will the Smart Home Take off?

August 13, 2010

It is a certainty inevitable that home automation becomes more of a reality and that disparate product categories will converge. Already tablet computers are being tasked with becoming part of the integrated entertainment of millions of consumers who appreciate being able to watch movies and read books on a single device.

But as time marches on more integration is inevitable and one of the best examples of the blending of WiFi, Internet radio and iTunes is Sonos, a wireless stereo system I recently wrote about and was quite impressed with. The company with a palindrome for a name rides on a home's WiFi network and allows you to wirelessly build an in-home audio system.
