He then lays how three tech powers today — Microsoft, Google, and Apple — may make similar moves to weather the inevitable storms. At a high level… Read More

    Windows SkyDrive Says Sayonara To Silverlight, Embraces HTML5

    We've been hearing a lot lately about consumer cloud services. There's Apple's recently-announced iCloud, Amazon's Cloud Drive, Google's Music Beta (which is your music in the cloud) and, of course, Microsoft's SkyDrive. All of these to one extent or another are moving away from simple online lockers, and we see that today with the release of the latest update to SkyDrive. The navigation is less… Read More

    Thinking Outside The Browser Box: Why Should Apple Play By Current Internet Rules?

    Earlier today, I was reading Joshua Topolsky's editorial on This is my next about Apple's "mistake" in turning their back on the Web and I kept stopping. I disagreed with basically everything. First of all, his entire argument is based on what I believe to be a fallacy: that Apple is going to completely turn their back on Web support for iCloud. I have reasons to believe this is not the case, asRead More

    Game, Set, iMatch

    Usually Apple launches are all about new product, and the WWDC keynote by Steve Jobs and crew was no exception. IOS 5, OS/X Lion, and iCloud were the tech version of a triple play, mainlining the iPad into the Mac and virtualizing the two product lines via the Cloud. What this means for Apple's competitors is being debated right now, particularly in Redmond and the GooglePlex. But The Company… Read More

  • "It Just Works."

    "It Just Works."

    Amid all the big announcements at this year's WWDC keynote, there was an undercurrent that was subtle, but important. "It just works." Steve Jobs kept saying this over and over again on stage. When Jobs does this, it's never an accident. It's a message. And it's a message that was underscored by another word. "Automatically." Jobs must have said it a couple dozen times during the… Read More

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — were rendered iCloudy in the aftermath of Steve Jobs' WWDC announcements. Even stalwart Google fanboys Taschek and Marks found it difficult to withstand the halo surrounding Apple's aggressive move to the Cloud and iOS as the dominant platform moving forward. Betaworks' John Borthwick applauded the… Read More
