Huh - Back after a few weeks of non-blogging. I do read blogs and try to keep my self up-to-date. However I am currently also working for my living, so therefore I have not had the time to think about writing this blog. Which sucks kind of since I was already at the very beginning quite unsure of whether I would drop to the one year blogger status? Statistics reveal that most people start blogs, but in the very end they will not do any updates... that is more or less under a year of trying.
I have been quite busy i.e. do not really understand how people (bloggers) have the time to write out long and interesting topics/posts.
Seems that also the PC manufacturers have realized the mobile and internet AND PC convergence. They are all stepping to the mobile space with Smartphone i.e. PDAs.
Lenovo aka IBM ThinkPad owner is building a Smartphone. Idea is to manufacture/sell the first Google powered android phone in China.
Dell is also getting interested on the matter/subject. Seem like the smaller laptops are not enough for the PC manufacturers.
Interesting will be to see just how the new mobile manufacturers will come out. Who will be their UI platform partner? Mac OS (No), Microsoft (Maybe), Android (Maybe), Symbian (No?)
Strategically a very interesting move from min PC/Laptops to mobile devices YET again proves that mobiles will surely be the dominant way of communication within the internet age. Power words: mobile, internet and convergence etc.
From the likes of Internet we will come to the next post:
VERY interesting!! So cloud computing and the likes have been hip words for some years now. Everyone has an idea of them. However only some services are currently running around cloud computing. Is data i.e. email synchronization cloud computing? Maybe - or at the least it is a starting point.
Anyways: How about a Google GDrive? You are probably aware of how much computers need processor power. In addition they need memory and storage memory. Well make those PCs thinner please? Google is on the works of giving you bootable Google hard drive in the sky. This remote-storage service could replace the hard drive, operating system, and the PC itself. And then potentially have a profound effect on mobile devices.
So to make things near future: http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/new-in-labs-offline-gmail.html
Google is now using their Gears engine to offer offline Gmail access, allowing Gmail users to read e-mails offline. "You get the same Gmail experience whether you're online or offline, all in a web browser, just like you're used to."
Watch the demo video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOAZaIaeIrI
Then to the final blog post:
"Yesterday was supposed to be the day that live Web video streaming took on TV broadcasting. With millions tuning in from their PCs to watch President Obama’s Inauguration speech, it was one of the biggest tests yet for live video streaming. But live streaming failed. " So seems that the online world is partly not ready for the masses :)
Well that's it for now. Back in February.
