Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

"However, because mobile application development talent is in short supply, many of these mobile application extensions tend to have several issues such as incompatible and even clunky User Experience (UX), security flaws, web-only implementation while a native application would have been a better fit, and poor functionality compared to their desktop counterparts. In many cases the software vendor is not able to incorporate in the mobile app key pieces of functionality that the enterprise had previously configured for the desktop app. For these reasons alone, corporations may want to consider licensing a mobile-only enterprise application from one of the new vendors that are quickly emerging to fill the void."

Mobilizing Enterprise Applications via Enterprise Irregulars

Software providers that began in the web era will have a difficult time providing high quality mobile solutions.  Mobile is not a just a channel or platform, it is a new way of working.

The company I work for’s goal is to be entirely mobile by 2016.  While that’s quite a bit of a stretch, it shows where we’re concentrating.

"That focus on cost may seem to argue for an infrastructure-focused push, but I believe the growth will be more around application development and application migration than infrastructure conversation and expansion. It’s the application side where the value lies, and where the real work needs to be done to take meaningful advantage of the fairly low-cost cloud infrastructure."

In July 2012, Jonathan Dharmaraj and his girlfriend of almost a year broke up. After spending every second together — working in the same hospital and living two minutes from each other — they both went off to different…

If this actually works I believe you have met somebody special.

Project Update #16: It’s Open Season!
Posted by OUYA

We just licked the stamps and waved a fond farewell to 1,200 OUYA Developer Consoles. These are the early versions of OUYA that developers will use to start making games. They’re on their way to developers around the globe – by land, air and sea. OK, only by air — we want you to get them quick. Devs, expect them on your doorstep within the next few days.


The OUYA (one of the biggest Kickstarter projects to date) has shipped to developer’s. I’m a little concerned with the alterations they have made to the android skin after the Kindle Fire but I’ll leave it to the gamers to decide what they think of it.  It’s INSANELY small.

LEAKED: Myspaces master plan to raise 50 million and re-launch as a spotify killer
I think it makes sense to go after spotify rather than the traditional social networks if they’re going all in on the music part, though it’s really hard to see them getting past the prior image of the product. I always knew about the low royalties issue but I feel like spotify losing money just kind of popped up suddenly, really shows how good of a spin artist Daniel Ek is or how good he is at finding capital. If nothing else it would be nice if myspace actually added a more artist friendly aspect to the streaming model, which it’s social roots might give it an opportunity at.
