The cloud is on everyone’s mind these days!!

cloud computing

Apps like Dropbox and Google Drive are getting everyone excited about cloud storage, . Users are ready for the cloud but is the cloud really ready for us? Amid all this hype and excitement, there are signs that storms are brewing.

Cloud storage is nice. It’s convenient, and when it works, it works wonders. But is it secure enough to rely on, either for your personal stuff or your business data?

What is to be relied on is secured files. Stored where one can see them (or at least the hard drives where they live). Everything gets backed up, and then backed up again just in case—storage is cheap, but  time and effort is equally valuable.And sure, there is no need to maintain the back up as most of the stuff is covered by cloud solution...

Gartner blames tablet demand as PC market crashes in Q4..

Market research firm Gartner says that an increasing demand for tablets saw worldwide PC shipments drop 4.9% to 90.3 million in the fourth quarter of last year.

“Tablets have dramatically changed the device landscape for PCs, not so much by ‘cannibalizing’ PC sales, but by causing PC users to shift consumption to tablets rather than replacing older PCs,” said Mikako Kitagawa, principal analyst at Gartner.

“Whereas as once we imagined a world in which individual users would have both a PC and a tablet as personal devices, we increasingly suspect that most individuals will shift consumption activity to a personal tablet, and perform creative and administrative tasks on a shared PC.

“There will be some individuals who retain both, but we believe they will be exception...

Tablets: the third platform!!

It’s easy to call a tablet a larger a mobile phone. Or a replacement for a notebook or ultrabook. But to dismiss tablets as scaled clones of their bigger and smaller brothers is a mistake.

Tablets are the third type of device: the one with the most revenue potential for ecommerce and developers alike. Tablets drive greater volumes of traffic, that convert to paid at better rates, and drive better qualified and less expensive leads through advertising.

Despite the fact that tablet penetration is less than half of smart phone penetration in the US, tablets’ share of traffic to websites outpaced mobile web in Q1 2012. And with tablet penetration doubling year over year, that trend is certain to continue.

“I think the ‘aha’ moment happened with netbooks.

“The notebook and PCs have over-served the mass needs of the market and people realized that they could pay $300 or $400 for something [a netbook] that would do 80-90% of what needed,” said Bajarin...
