IPad: Changing the Future of Computing

On paper, there is nothing particularly special about the Apple iPad, which is scheduled to arrive in retail stores Saturday. Its performance and size are good but not revolutionary. By Apple’s own admission, it’s similar to a netbook — a downsized laptop whose purpose is to run browser-based or other light applications. Because it’s Apple, the iPad will be more compact, user friendly, stylish and come with a salty price tag. But here’s why the iPad is important: It’s the next step in human-computer interaction. Increasingly, we are lost without access to a computer and the Internet. We install fewer applications from a disc, spend more computing time in a browser and connected to the Internet, and we’re storing more of our important data in the cloud. A smart phone just doesn’t cut it for many tasks. The screen is too small, the processor too underpowered and the ... (more)

Today iPad is the Only Whore in Town

Yesterday, Apple introduced new features of iPhone OS 4. Nice. Really? Should we embrace the platform and, for a lousy $99, become a developer for this API? Those people who bothered to go through the application process noticed the difference in a clause 3.3.1, which in the past was just merely stating “Applications may only use Documented APIs in the manner prescribed by Apple and must not use or call any private APIs.”, the new version (the beta of iPhone OS 4.0) has the following interesting fragment: “Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine, and only code written in C, C++, and Objective-C may compile and directly link against the Documented APIs (e.g., Applications that link to Documented APIs through an intermediary translation or compatibility layer or tool are prohibited).” First...

Sybase's Take on iPhone OS 4.0

Everyone has known for a while that Apple would soon be coming out with an update to the iPhone OS. We knew it would have some great enhancements for enterprise use, but, since Apple is great at keep secrets, everyone has been waiting with baited breath to see what those enhancements would be. Finally, on April 8th, iPhone OS 4 was publicly announced. In fact, Sybase was mentioned in Steve Jobs’ keynote message when he discussed device management for enterprises. You can watch the iPhone 4 keynote (we are mentioned around the 40 minute mark). As expected, iPhone OS 4 introduces a number of enterprise focused enhancements for the iPhone platform. Multitasking, enhanced security, new device management capabilities, and improved enterprise integration are some key improvement areas. We are pleased that Apple has taken the next step to enable vendors like Sybase to dev... (more)

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)

Samsung Files New Suit Against Apple

Hours before Apple introduced its new third-generation iPad Wednesday Samsung said it filed a new suit in South Korea charging the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 with trifling with three of its patents. Samsung told the Korea Times there would be "no compromise" with its single largest customer. That was after the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Apple had offered Samsung a license for $5-$15 a device (more of this anon). And to kinda prove Samsung's point, the Korea Times said that Samsung has upped the budget for its worldwide court battle with Apple from $200 million to $260 million. Anyway, Reuters says the new charges relate to the way data is displayed, the user interface and short text messages. The so-called utility IP involved is not standards-essential so Samsung is taking a different tack perhaps persuaded by the fact that the European Commission is inve... (more)

Apple CEO Tim Cook is in China, the company's second-largest market, meeting with unnamed government officials as well as Vice-Premier Li Keqiang, who may be running the country next year. The Chinese said they chatted about IP issues and greater cooperation. Seems China wants to enhance its "innovation capacity," nurture and develop "emerging strategic industries" and speed up "the building an innovative country."
