Sun CEO Reviews Company's Prospects for 2009-10

Sun's CEO Jonathan Schwartz has been reviewing Sun's three major strategic imperatives, and the company's progress going in to its next fiscal year. As industry blogs go, the three entries he's produced so far are miniature masterpieces. A fourth and last one is on its way. The first in the series, titled "Understanding Sun in Three Easy Steps," kicks off with the bright and breezy intro: "We're approaching the end of our fiscal year, and given all the swirl in the economy, I thought it worthwhile to restate where Sun's headed as a company, to let customers, partners, employees and investors see and understand where we're headed. Clarity's always useful, doubly so in times of uncertainty." But it isn't long before Schwartz shows us how he's earned his reputation as one of the industry's most insightful bloggers, with a natural ear for a ringing phrase: "I'm neither wo... (more)

More Technology Forecasts for 2010

New Year 2010 on Ulitzer I just can't help but share more technology forecasts for 2010, as it is January 1, 2010. Dan Grabham and the team from TechRadar put together some quality thoughts and I've included some of those and others below. First, let's address mobile phones during 2010. "It's the beginning of the end for the featurephone, those pretty but less functional handsets," says mobile phone specialist Gareth Beavis. "It's not that the segment is dying, rather that it's re-inventing itself as part of the smartphone revolution, meaning more applications for everyone." "Samsung's pledge to use Bada, which brings smartphone capabilities to cheaper handsets, on its lower end range shows that the soon-to-be world's biggest phone manufacturer wants to see smartphones in the hands of many more people, with the rest of the industry set to follow suit too." Think "Fort... (more)

Is this the Death-Knell For (Relative) Silence on Airplanes?

The BBC carried a report yesterday that raises the alarming possibility of extending cellphone use on board airplanes from just either end of a journey to throughout the duration of the flight. Now before I go any further let me just say that I do not go as far as the British essayist Pico Iyer, who once wrote, in "The Eloquent Sounds of Silence": Silence is sunshine...company is clouds; silence is rapture...company is doubt; silence is golden...company is brass. But I will admit to a horror of being surrounded by people talking on their cellphones while the rest of us are trying to enjoy the latest movie or catch up on work, on life...or on sleep. Here's how it would work, according to Ofcom, the official body that's basically the telecommunications regulator in the UK: The key to the whole thing, the technical trick that circumvents the problem found in 2003 by the CAA ...

Chrome Netbook OS; Tablet PCs; LBS; Open Source

2010 will undoubtedly be a year of technology innovation. In 2009, Twitter revolutionized the way we get news, it brought us closer to those who were a part of the news, almost making traditional media irrelevant. I don’t know who (or what) will be the Twitter of 2010, but below are a few predictions for the coming year. Google’s Chrome Netbook OS will be a hit. Their OS will mostly be dependent on a Google Account. A Google Account opens up their full Google Apps suite, which includes email, calendar, word processing, and MS Office like functions. Google’s renditions of their current OS have been well received by the “blogosphere” especially it’s ability to fit on a 1GB flash drive. An OS that small is perfect for Netbooks and tablet PCs. The smaller footprint also gives the user more capabilities. A key part of the Chrome OS will be the Chrome brower (my browser ... (more)

Microsoft Angles for a Serious Comeback in the Mobile Game

Microsoft Session at Cloud Expo Many people have wondered what has taken Microsoft so long to update its lackluster Windows Mobile platform. It finally did it! At the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Microsoft introduced the Windows Phone 7 Series, its latest operating system for phones. The Software giant’s Windows Mobile has been getting the short end of the stick and stood no chance to compete with the likes of iPhones, Blackberries and Android devices. It was also embarrassingly ignored by apps developers who spearheaded the success of Apple’s devices and now are bestowing their undivided attention on Android. Microsoft's mobile system appeared in 13.1 percent of smart phones sold in the U.S. last year, according to research firm In-Stat making it No. 3 after Research in Motion’s BlackBerry and the iPhone. But Microsoft has been fast losing its relevance in ... (more)

The IP Address - Identity Disconnect

The advent of virtualization brought about awareness of the need to decouple applications from IP addresses. The same holds true on the client side – perhaps even more so than in the data center. I could quote The Prisoner, but that would be so cliché, wouldn’t it? Instead, let me ask a question: just which IP address am I? Am I the one associated with the gateway that proxies for my mobile phone web access? Or am I the one that’s currently assigned to my laptop – the one that will change tomorrow because today I am in California and tomorrow I’ll be home? Or am I the one assigned to me when I’m connected via an SSL VPN to corporate headquarters? If you’re tying identity to IP addresses then you’d better be a psychiatrist in addition to your day job because most users have multiple IP address disorder. IP addresses are often utilized as part of an identification pr... (more)

Simple Mobile Applications Can Offer Real ROIs

The International Telecommunication Union reported in 2009 that 28% of people in Africa have mobile phones but only 5% have the internet.  The report also said that mobile phone subscriptions in Africa were increasing by 50% per year.  As a result of this rapid growth, mobile application developers have been creating simple mobile applications for African businesses that utilize SMS rather than mobile smart phones with data plans.  There are some lessons to be learned. In a recent CNN article entitled, "Mobile App Developers Tackle Africa's Biggest Problems," the author writes about developers creating powerful and beneficial mobile applications that work with simple and limited 140 character text message inputs.  One example was a mobile application that enables dairy farmers to request the average price of a unit of milk in certain areas.  The text message queries...
