Could iPads and tablet computing finally be transforming workplaces?

BlackBerry chief Thorsten Heins might believe the tablets will be dead in five years. But growing evidence suggests the tablets – introduced just over three years ago in the form of the iPad — may be beginning to take deeper roots in the workplace, and even reviving the dream of the elusive paperless office.

Is this the beginning of a brand revolution? Is Alicia Keys really going to...

On a flight not that long ago, I sat next to someone who had a Blackberry 4 connected to Vodafone. I considered suggesting to him that two tin cans connected with a piece of string might work better. Perhaps that was a little harsh. Oh well.

Australian businesses are haemorrhaging moola thanks to the seemingly innocent SMS, according to The Full Circle Group. The telco expense management experts examined business SMS usage and costs over three years, including more than 250 business clients and a whopping two million SMS messages.

Google’s $12.5bn Motorola bid has mobile industry in a tizz

Google’s recent announcement that it had snapped up Motorola Mobility for a cool $12.5bn cash has techie types all a-quiver. Top smartphone and tablet manufacturers that use Google’s Android operating system to power their devices have put on their game faces following the announcement.

Fruit-loopy video: Ronnie Corbett’s dongle won’t fit in his Blackberry [VIDEO]

It seems British comedy legend Ronnie Corbett's character has a problem with his Blackberry ... er, blackberry. In addition to this bit being incredibly smart (and deliciously old-skool), it also reminds us that even in the digital age, what's new is old, as we outfit common words and phrases with new definitions.

How does it do that? iPhone app translates text on the fly

If your reaction after watching this video is "they're yanking my chain," you're not alone. We had a similar reaction. It doesn't seem feasible than an app could not just translate the words on an object, but project the translation on the object itself. Right?

Playbook toys with Apple’s onions

When the Apple iPad came out, I think I speak for most folks when I said, “Ooo, another premature Apple release!” (with emphasis on that initial bleat). This is because Apple, in my opinion, tends to push its products on us a little too early. Hence Blackberry’s confident stride into the same as yet tentatively-described ether; the Blackberry Playbook.

In a development that's unlikely to be nearly as amusing as a toilet flush simulator, iPhone is losing ground to its competitors, likely to heighten rivalry between hardware and app developers alike. We've already seen how an almighty stink can arise over iPhone app developers. Take the case of Pull My Finger versus iFart.

Disconnect online to reconnect in life

With technology making it easier to connect with one another through social media, the general impression is that we are all coming closer together.
