How Do You Categorize Notebooks?


The notebook computer market has become one of the remaining battlegrounds for computer manufacturers. Our purpose here is to define the notebook market segments, describe what the general characteristics of each segment are, and to give users an idea of what features they can expect for each segment.

The desktop PC market, although highly competitive, has seen similar consolidation, and the breadth of offerings has narrowed in recent years. The nearest thing to vitality here was the advent of two products: (1) the Internet/Information appliance, which is still in its Read More

The Greening of SaaS


Traditionally, the advantage of software as a service (SaaS) is that it reduces the costs involved in installing, deploying, and supporting stand-alone software. But recent “green” initiatives have shed light on another benefit: with no hardware to purchase or software to run, SaaS applications require less energy than their on-premise counterparts. Learn how your company can benefit from the “greening” of SaaS.

A Web-browser-based processing model generally falls into the thin client category, which consumes much less energy than running code on work machines, accessing local servers or other data center resources. Instead of the initial upfront acquisition costs, followed by annual renewal fees typical for traditional stand-alone client/server software, SaaS costs are usually structured at recurring periodic intervals.

Do You Want Your App to Talk Back to You (as a Chatterbox)? - Part 2


In Part 1 of this blog series I admitted to being a late adopter of a sort, in part for not immediately jumping onto the social media bandwagon.
