A Cloud for Everyone on Every Device

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella did a brilliant job announcing some of the things Microsoft is working on including the much anticipated Office for iPad. I highly recommend that you watch this press event and pay careful attention to where Microsoft is heading both with Windows and the Cloud.

Poll: How often do you use the IBM Connections mobile app?

 

I’m quite surprised with these results

Yesterday I performed a completely unscientific poll asking “What’s your primary app development target platform?” and I am quite surprised with two things:

  1. 44% of the 75 participants are still primarily developing rich client apps
  2. Only 9% are developing primarily for mobile/tablet

Technology Complacency – I’m in a good place

This is the first time in many years that I am not feeling the need to upgrade my desktop computer, laptop, smart phone or  tablet. I’m not even feeling the slightest urge to to get new kit of any kind. My 27″ 2011 iMac is running great, my iPad mini is awesome, my 2012 Macbook Pro laptop is way more than I need on the road and for teaching and my iPhone 4s still works great.

In the past I would feel the effects of the Steve Jobs “reality distortion field” and feel compelled to upgrade. No more. Maybe it’s the “turning 50″ thing?

Everything is working, and working dang well.

How about you?
