There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage?

The Revolution Continues

The consensus seems to be, at least from the myriad surveys, studies, and research, that cloud as a model is the right answer, it’s just the location that’s problematic for most organizations. Organizations aren’t ignoring reality; they know there are real benefits associated with cloud computing. But they aren’t yet – and may never be – willing to give up control. And there are good reasons to maintain that control, from security to accountability to agility.  But the “people” still want the benefits of cloud, so the question is: how do we put the power of ( cloud | elastic | on-demand) computing into the hands of the people who will benefit from it without requiring that they relocate to a new address “in the cloud?” The problem is that all the cloud providers have the secret sauce to their efficient, on-demand infrastructures locked up in the palace. They certain... (more)

Microsoft Surface and The New Era of Touch

Microsoft engineers  began brainstorming concepts for an interactive table back in 2001. In early 2003 a new product was presented to Bill Gates the Microsoft Chairman. A year later, the MS Surface team grew and became the Surface Computing group. Finally in 2007 they had a prototype to build and then start selling Microsoft Surface. Microsoft was not the only company in this race. Apple with its iPhone or HP with their big multi touch screen were also deeply involved. There are also other big brands, for instance mobile phones manufacturers where entering the new era of touch. In 2002 watching the Movie “Minority Report” we knew, all these technologies time would come. Science fiction has now become “reality”.  Multi touch mobile device, multi touch screens, which means a natural user interface, create unlimited possibilities for developers and creative people to r...

Apple TV Drops in Price

Sunday night Apple dropped the price of the Apple TV by $100 for the 160Gb model - this brings it down to $229. The smaller 40Gb model is now MIA - so long, little white Apple TV. The Apple TV area as a whole is an odd one for Apple. When you hear Tim Cook and Phil Schiller talk about the Apple TV you get the feeling that Apple wants to do more with this device, but are not sure how. My gut feeling is that the Apple TV is exactly what Steve Jobs has declared it to be - an experiment. It will likely be a couple more years before we find out what Apple wants to do with the Apple TV. What I would like to see is Apple creating a social TV watching system. The iPod and iPhone are great personal experiences, but watching a sports event or a movie is a social experience. Can Apple crack the social experience in the same way Nintendo's Wii has for games? We will have to se... (more)
