  • Google Graveyard 2013

    One of the great things about Google is that it supplies us with a seemingly never ending list of products, many of them free. One of the most maddening things about the company, though, is that every once in a while it kills off a favourite. Here's a look back at more than a dozen products killed off by Google in 2013.

  • Hot mobile startups to watch

    Just how big of a deal is mobile? Three years ago there were an estimated 400 venture capital deals for mobile companies, with about $3 billion invested in the industry. Last year, according to Rutberg & Co., which tracks mobile investments, VCs poured more than $6.85 billion into mobile startups across about a thousand deals. Mobile companies captured 40% of venture capital funding last year, Rutberg found.

  • Ubuntu and Firefox line up to take on iOS and Android in 2013

    Android and iOS may be at the top of the heap in the smartphone world, but that hasn't stopped competitors, new and old, from trying to grab a piece of the pie. Ubuntu-maker Canonical announced Wednesday that it would enter the smartphone fray with its own Ubuntu phone OS based loosely on its popular Linux distribution for PCs. Research in Motion at the end of January will announce availability for BlackBerry 10, widely acknowledged as the company's last chance to retain any competitive advantage in the smartphone wars. Meanwhile, Microsoft is pushing Windows Phone 8, hoping that it unseats BlackBerry to become the third most popular smartphone OS behind Android and iOS. And the Mozilla Foundation also hopes to crack the smartphone world with a Web-based smartphone.

  • Your mobile strategy will fail without effective application rationalisation

    Mobility in the enterprise, whether it be through, bring your own device (BYOD) strategy, mobile business intelligence (BI), internal application development, or pushing out applications to customers, has been this year?s hot topic for CIOs and senior IT managers.

  • HTML5 and the future of the web

    HTML5, the latest version of the HTML web mark-up language, promises to provide businesses with powerful, cross-platform tools for their web and mobile applications, and give developers an alternative to Adobe?s more popular Flash environment.

  • Write once; run anywhere ? the answer to patent wars and BYOD confusion?

    The bewildering pace of change of mobile devices and formats has kept application developers on their toes. It has also forced businesses to limit the range of platforms they can support, and sideline other, perhaps more innovative ones.

  • Understanding App needs and benefits

    In previous decades there was a mismatch between information technology and its availability, which meant that influential workers only got access to information when they were chained to their desk. Today the CIO has a responsibility to fix that scenario.
