A recap of some of my latest Twitter posts.
I’m always fascinated by new words and modern technology has brought us the word phablet. Apparently a phablet is designed to combine or straddle the functionalities of a smartphone and tablet. In other words, it’s too small to be a tablet and too big to be a phone, yet you’re still able to make calls on it. Apparently these hybrid devices are skewing the sales of tablets and phones. To mess up things even more, the market is moving toward wearable tech to replace all of these devices.

I’m fairly certain Google will hold all the cards when the game is over. All things Chrome are pretty cool looking. The Chromecast is no exception.

Indianapolis based ExactTarget has seen tremendous growth since their inception. Now that they are owned by Salesforce.com, there may be some overlapping of personnel. So the logical next step is to figure out how not to pay for the extra employees. Sadly, 200 must go.

As the shine starts to wear off the iPad and users look beyond games and email, there needs to be a savior to bring these devices back to usefulness. Parallels has the answer.
