My take on Google buying Divide.
Might Android finally get serious about business out of the box? In a recent post, I compared how Android supports Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Mobile Device Management (MDM). We saw that out-of-the-box Android does not really address the enterprise very well, leaving device manufacturers to come up with their own systems for managing devices in a corporate environment. For example...

Wearable technology is exploding in popularity and if you are feeling left out of the next revolu- tion, this course will help you understand where wearable technology came from, what it is, and where it is headed. You will learn about fitness bands, SmartWatches, and Google Glass. We will cover how each of them work, why you would want them, and their potential. This course will be non-technical in nature and so you do not need to be computer or tech savvy in any way.
Cost: $42 (tuition $36, administrative fee $6)

Bit I wrote on Android in the enterprise for Android Central.
Today, iOS dominates the enterprise. This has been the case for a few years now, and reports like Good Technology's report show that iOS is at 72 percent of the enterprise, while Android is at 26 percent. There is a good reason for this. The out-of-the-box Android does not really allow for much restriction, setup automation (like pre-setting up Exchange mail, contacts, and calendar for...

Author, mobile guru, lover of all tech
Introduction
Craig James Johnston has been involved with technology since his school days at Glenwood High in Durban, South Africa, when his school was given some Apple II Europluses. From that moment technology captivated him, and he has owned, supported, evangelized, and written about it ever since.

Craig has been involved in designing and supporting large-scale enterprise networks with integrated email and directory services since 1989. Although he has owned many PDAs, Craig was drawn in by the BlackBerry in 2000 and started down the path of supporting it almost exclusively by 2005. Later he became interested in iPhone, iPad, webOS, and all Android devices. He has held many different IT-related positions in his career, ranging from sales support engineer to mobile-engineering an infrastructure with 35,000 BlackBerrys at a large bank.

In addition to designing and supporting mobile computing environments, Craig writes about these topics for Smartphone Essentials magazine and CrackBerry.com, the leading BlackBerry blog. He also cohosts the BYTE Wireless Radio podcast for BYTE.com, the CrackBerry.com podcast, and his own Mobile Computing Authority podcast.

Craig enjoys high horsepower and high-speed vehicles, and he tries very hard to obey the speed limits while driving them. Originally from Durban, South Africa, Craig now lives in New Jersey, with his wife Karen, and a couple of cats.
