For years Apple has taken the position that people will pay for a premium product. But now Apple has assumed that just because an album was 'free' that somehow it would make music less personal.

Nice article (well actually comment discussion) on how Blackberry plans to share the WiFi connection onboard an airplane between your Blackberry Playbook & Blackberry mobile phone using Bridge. Guess we will have to wait and see... hopefully soon.

It seems that time has gone by very quickly. Very quickly indeed as this flowchart from [x]cube Labs shows the evolution of the mobile smartphone operating system.

My most recent receipt from Albertson's is over TWO FEET long (26.5") for only 43 items. It was just a quick run to the store and yet I have this monster roll of paper. At first I thought it was some sort of inside joke. Why would anyone think that I needed a two foot long receipt to track items that I already purchased?

Others have also headged their bets by developing both mobile sites and apps at the same time - GetThere and Rearden Commerce. HTML 5.0 looks very promising and I can't wait to see how this plays out in the coming years. Read more

I'm getting an iPad for work so I can demo some of our new mobile technology. So I started some research into the apps I want to install on the iPad.
