We Can't Stop Talking About The iPhone

There is no escape from the iPhone. I have never seen a consumer-electronics device dominate public discourse as much as this gadget. In my many years of writing about cell phones, I always thought the buzz surrounding the launch of the Motorola Razr was unique. But that was nothing compared to the iPhone.

Simple Web Design And Discoverability Are Keys To Mobile SEO

Now that the mobile Web is mainstream, everyone is launching mobile Web sites. The problem is no one seems to know how to drive traffic to them. As a result, mobile search engine optimization has emerged as a big topic for everyone from marketers to online editors and publishers. The mobile Web, though, is not as developed as the desktop Web and as a result, optimizing mobile sites for search is far from easy.

Will The iPhone Support Microsoft Exchange?

For much of the last six months, bloggers and reporters operated under the assumption that the iPhone would not support major enterprise platforms like BlackBerry Enterprise Server or Microsoft Exchange.

Good Gets A Little Web 2.0 With Latest Upgrade

Mobile e-mail solution maker Good Technology today announced the latest version of its mobile business solution, Good Messaging 5. I was able to get a sneak peek of Good 5 a few weeks ago, and it looks like Good is ready for Web 2.0. Or at least moving in that direction.

Will Enterprise 2.0 Kill Corporate E-Mail?

One of the themes that emerged during this morning's keynote sessions at Enterprise 2.0 was how Web 2.0 technologies act as new communications tools. Some technologists (including a few of the speakers this morning) suggest that Web 2.0 could kill e-mail for consumers. Could technologies like social networks, blogs, Skype, and IM kill e-mail for businesses as well?

All Knowledge Is Social At Enterprise 2.0

I am at the Enterprise 2.0 conference today in Boston. Enterprise 2.0 is a relatively new term -- it was first coined in March last year. But it has captured the imaginations of technologists and vendors around the world in just 15 months and gone memetic. But what does Enterprise 2.0 really mean for businesses?

Yahoo CEO Out: Does This Mean Panama Is A Flop?

Yahoo CEO Terry Semel resigned today in a move that sent shockwaves through the Web. Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang will replace Semel at the top spot. Despite Semel's best efforts -- buying Overture and building Panama -- Yahoo hasn't been able to keep up with Google in terms of search or online ad growth. Today's announcement opens up plenty of new questions.

Earlier this week, technology columnist Walter Mossberg pulled out his iPhone at The Chronicle of Higher Education's President's Forum. The iPhone even stole the show at a conference of academic administrators. But, even more important, Mossberg gave a possible preview of his upcoming review.

Mobile Phones Not As Addictive As Advertised

At least not according to a recent Harris poll. Eighty-one percent of U.S. adults still have a landline in their homes (and that landline in most cases isn't VoIP). What happened to the mobile and IP telephony revolution?

Jobs Promises iPhone Will Bring Web 2.0 To Mobile

Steve Jobs today in his keynote (or is it Jobsnote) at WWDC in San Francisco talked up the iPhone as a truly mobile Web 2.0 solution. Jobs said that the power of the "full" Safari browser on the iPhone lets developers design and use real, Web 2.0 applications like widgets. That's right, third-party developers will be able to make applications for the iPhone. But just how easy will it be? Is this real or just more of the Post a Comment
