Turns out that most workers don't take enterprise mobile security seriously. Or at least, the IT department is worried sick that they don't. Which, if we take an honest look at our own behavior, probably is a valid concern. My latest post on Network World.
Most companies worry about communicating and enforcing their internal mobile security policies, says a new survey.

What's the REAL problem with Apple ditching the headphone jack on the #iiPHone7 ? A pile of tiny pieces just begging to get lost. My latest post on Network World.

I want to know who are the 62% of people who DIDN'T think cloud computing was important? My latest post for Network World.
A sneak peek at the Spiceworks 2017 State of IT Report offers confirmation of cloud growth, insight on pricing and a surprising level of geopolitical chauvinism.

Apple runs a real risk in abandoning standard connections. People spend a lot of $$$ on devices to work with their phones, and they don't want to throw them away or have to use awkward and expensive adapters. My latest post for Network World.
Why Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is right to urge Apple not to lose the headphone jack in the latest iPhone, iPhone 7.

At New Relic's FutureStack16 New York event last week, sportscaster and Sabermetrician Brian Kenny used baseball to demonstrate the power of data, and to explain the resistance to new and better ways of doing things. Even non-fans will find it fascinating and inspiring.

It might be a bit early to say the war is truly over, but the trends toward Android and China can't be ignored. My latest post for Network World.
New research suggests Google's Android—and China—are extending their domination of mobile development over Apple and the U.S.

I pinky promise this is the last post I will write about the #iPhone7 #headphonejack . But I just couldn't resist comparing the two big smartphone brou-ha-has. It's tongue-in-cheek... mostly.
Which smartphone gaffe is worse: the iPhone 7 not having a headphone jack or the Galaxy Note 7's spontaneous explosions?

How do you update the Apple Watch without alienating the early adopters who bought the first version? Apple smartly chose to upgrade the innards and apps but not mess much with the device's appearance. My latest post for Network World.
Apple did a good job sprucing up its smart watch without alienating fans who bought the original model

Make no mistake, cloud computing is a good thing. But that doesn't mean it isn't creating difficult disruptions along with progress.  My latest for Network World.
Rackspace’s $4.3 billion acquisition by a private equity firm is another example of cloud computing creating winners and losers.

The cloud giveth, and the cloud taketh away. My latest post for Network World.
Cloud computing offers many benefits, but not everyone profits equally from the changes—as we can see from Cisco's recent layoffs.

The MoMA is justly famous for its amazing collection of art. And it deserves that reputation. But its customer service leaves much to be desired. Art lovers are treated like cattle, waiting in hour-long lines to check bags, for example. And just try to get close to the most popular pieces of art. You're likely to be jostled out of the way by a over-eager tourists and whiny children. If the art collection wasn't one of the best in the world, I'd probably never go back.
