    Most people closely relate mobile enterprise solutions with BlackBerry. And rightly so. The company formerly known as Research In Motion dominated the mobile enterprise industry for well over a decade. But the company has since slipped from its glory days. Ever since, others have stepped up to fill the gap and the mobile enterprise industry has evolved itself into a vastly different beast. Mobile enterprise devices are no longer just for email or handling light work on the go. Mobile devices are now used as point of sale (POS) systems, vital retail sales floor tools, and much more. Last ...

    There's no denying 2013 was an impressive year on the software side of things. Both Android and iOS underwent major UI overhauls, and both the respective application catalogs broke the 1 million application mark. Back in January, the App Store was growing by approximately 20,000 applications per month. It's reasonable to suggest that number has since doubled, since the App Store was at 900,000 apps in June and hit 1,000,000 by late October. It's also not unlikely that Android's rate of growth is even higher, considering it caught and surpassed the App Store this year alone. Sifting through ...

    Both Google Play and Apple's App Store are home to over one million applications each. While that's nothing to complain about, it does make new application discovery tricky, and it makes finding the best applications out there somewhat difficult. Over the years, however, I've managed to hone in on the best applications around, and I've come to rely on many. Each time I setup a new device, there are dozens of applications I feel I must download. But of those dozens, only a handful are applications I can no longer go without. In the below video, I briefly detail my must-have applications. ...

    We often compare mobile platforms by various metrics – market share, user-friendliness, the size of their respective app catalogs, and much more. But rarely do we take the time to compare the cost of owning one mobile platform versus another. It's no secret that applications sometimes cost more or less on opposing platforms. Some games cost more on Android than they do iOS. In the same vein, a $0.99 Android application may cost more on iOS or Windows Phone. Which platform will cost you the most over time? Which platform is home to the most expensive applications? It's no simple question ...

    The venerable phone number has been around, in some form or another, for over a century. Beginning as short two- or three-digit codes given orally to an operator or entered via turns of a wall telephone's crank, phone numbers have grown to lengthy proportions over a century of exploding growth in person-to-person calling. Today, dialing an old friend (or saving the "digits" of a new friend) in America means entering a string of numbers at least ten digits long. Depending on factors like region and international dialing code, numbers can be even longer. That's a lot of numerals to keep in a ...

    "I'm at the beach and I can't use my phone. That sucks." So reads the note I jotted down during last weekend's visit to a Boston-area beach. The weather was perfect, the crowds minimal, and the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, for once, not too cold. It was a perfect day on the sand. Or rather, it would have been, if I hadn't been so worried about babying my communication devices. Yes, yes, I know: "leave your phones at home! The beach is a place to get away from all that! Unplug from the internet for two seconds," and blah, blah, et cetera. Normally, I'd agree; there's a time and a place for ...
