2007 was undoubtedly the year of Social Networking, but what of 2008? Will '08 be the year of "Unified Communications" or the year when CMS comes to stand for "Community Management System" - or even "Collaboration Management System"? Or will it be the year of a giga-merger, to beat the mere mega-mergers of 2007? As usual at the end of each year, SYS-CON has been informally polling its globe-girdling network of software developers, industry executives, commentators, investors, writers, and editors. As always, the range and depth of their answers is fascinating, throwing light not just on where the industry is going but also how it's going to get there, why, because of who, within what kind of time-scale.

Obama Endorses the Value of U.S. Social Technologies

"We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook. In America, innovation doesn’t just change our lives. It’s how we make a living." With this one sentence, spoken Tuesday during his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama ushered in once and for all the Age of Sociotechnology, the age that recognizes the importance of the interaction between people and technology in both workplaces and society. Obama recognizes perhaps better than anyone in America the extent to which technology nowadays is socially constructed and society is technically constructed. "We are the nation...of Google and Facebook" - those eight words may well go on to become the most significant President Obama has ever uttered to date. For better or for worse, it would seem that the destiny of the U.S.... (more)

iPad 3 Rumor Mill

DigiTimes says it's heard from its redoubtable downstream sources that Apple has scratched the notion of iPad 3 being available this year maybe because Samsung and LG can't get decent yields on a 2,048x1,536 9.7-inch "retina display" panel and Sharp's are too expensive. On top of which Apple's high-resolution demands also mean a larger backlighting source and apparently a single-edge light bar won't do plus the panel is reportedly having trouble meeting Apple's physical thinness, rich color and toughness requirements. DigiTimes claims iPad 3 was supposed to launch in the second half "with a supply volume of 1.5-2 million units in the third quarter and 5-6 million in the fourth quarter." Not to worry though, it says the supply of iPad 2s "in the second half will still be maintained at 28-30 million units." Meanwhile, Reuters says Apple plans to put a billion-dollar ... (more)

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business Ray Coleman is a small business owner who writes about money management, green living, and sustainability.   One of the great benefits of the modern age is the ability of small businesses to conduct a majority of their operations in the digital realm. Eliminating the need for bulky file cabinets, storage facilities, photocopiers, printers, and scanners can reduce overhead dramatically. Replacing costly courier services with emails, and swapping out newsletters and solicitations for social media and web-based marketing programs means serious cost savings, as well. Essentially, all of this comes down to replacing paper with pixels. By taking your business green, you're not only helping the environment, you're freeing up a ton of working capital for your venture – and often creating a better and preferred experience f... (more)

Why Apple’s iPad Will Be a Content Marketing Game Changer

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 great grandfather of the iPad. That won’t be the fate of the iPad as it comes to market at just the right time, providing a marvelous new outlet for content marketers to capture the increasingly mobile digital generation that now includes most of us. The Sad Fate of the Apple Newton in the 1990s. Great idea. Unfortunate timing. For Apple, the Newton was a tablet pc that was too early to deliver on its lofty promise in the early 90s.  It failed not because Steve Jobs’ ultimate concept was wrong, but because users weren’t screaming for a mobile device and because the Newton’s capabilities were limited and disappointing to many.  In many respects, the Newton was...

HP to Take On iPad

Virtualization Track at Cloud Expo Sometime this year the slate HP demo'd at the Consumer Electronics Show is going to go into competition with Apple's newfangled iPad. HP is kinda ticked that Apple is stealing its thunder. It's been working on the dingus for five years and says it could have put it out two years ago but it would have cost $1,500. Now it's got a cheap Atom processor, touch-aware Windows 7 and the idea that iPad is too limited. Register Today and Save $550 ! Explore Sponsorship Opportunities ! What people want, HP CTO Phil McKinney says, is a whole multimedia-capable widget so, unlike iPad, the slate will have Adobe's Apple-scorned Flash as well as AIR so Flash can run outside the browser. It'll also be able to run multiple applications at the same time, another thing iPad can't do. The New York Times figures the HP device will have a lot shorter batte... (more)

Some Thoughts on Femtocells

  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 Wi-Fi phones to have better calling via your broadband internet, but is not an actual cell tower.  AT&T’s offering enables voice and data over the cell (great for those non-Wi-Fi phones) while Sprint’s femtocell only allows voice transmissions.  Obviously enabling full on voice and maybe data for people in their homes is a big deal.  Especially on the most often reviled and harangued network, AT&T. The ability to actually make calls from home is something a lot of iPhone users and other cell phone users would love to have.  The most common thing heard about the iPhone is “it’s grea... (more)

What's Not Included in the iPhone 4 OS?

Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET, recently shared some interesting observations in an article today about what was NOT included in the recent iPhone 4 OS upgrade. Here are her thoughts: Mass storage mode: We would've liked to see an easier way to just drag and drop files from our computer to the iPhone without having to go through a third-party app. Tethering with AT&T: Yes, we know this is already possible with the current OS, but AT&T in the U.S. have not gotten onboard with it yet (tethering is currently available in other countries like Canada and the U.K.). We were hoping we would hear more about it at the event, but no dice there. 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 ... (more)
