I am advocating Choose Your Own Device in my ICT Strategy for our organisation. CYOD where your staff can choose from a pre-agreed list of devices makes sense as it gives a sense of control back to ICT and will assist in drafting the HR pieces around the rollout.

Thanks +David Turner for the blog post. I would have missed this otherwise :)

The 'Third Platform', after Mainframe and Client/Server is what I'm summarising for my organisation as Cloud, Mobility, Data and Collaboration.

I'm choosing to use Collaboration to get away from the use of 'Social' which I find carries a certain stigma. Also preferring to use just Data and dropping the 'Big' as this is either not understood or viewed as just the latest buzzword.

Half tempted to lash out for the full 21 page report from IDC too. $5 for it, apparently, although I'm not sure if you need to be already subscribed to another service with them first to get it

On Android I can't see whether you can choose specific folders to back-up? Seems that the new option is all other folders or no other folders? Maybe I need to check the individual folder settings from the desktop?
One more hidden feature of the latest Google+ Android app: Auto backup can now be extended to other folders, meaning photos taken/edited with other apps can be backed up as well!

You have to enable it in the settings first, and then can disable it for separate folders if you want.

Had a business meeting and picked up a Green Tea. The tea was good and hot and the wait staff were very attentive. I appreciated the fact that they came back after drinks had been served to check how everything was, and they did it in a non-intrusive way. Pleasant atmosphere and a great location looking out over Brisbane Square and south towards the Brisbane river.

Dropped in for a cup of Green Tea. Spring has a clean, refreshing feel to it and the wait staff were helpful. The Green Tea was good too!
