VARs Selling Data Storage in 2014

2Bmobile was originally establish to help people convert over from on-premise IT gear to using Cloud base products with simple clients like smartphones and tablets.

How Mobile Has Changed in 5 years

When I started 2BMobile we where thinking about mobility as freeing professional people from their offices by using smartphones, laptops and Netbooks (what are they?). Today with smartphones and tablets in the hands of almost everyone, mobility has taken a giant step forward in the quest of a truly virtual worker and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to work and the apps keep drive the independents from any one physical device to allow us the freedom to pick up where every and when every we want to.

Getting Web Apps vs. Buying Software

Take Away:

  1. With free and rented software (aka Software as a Service, SaaS) covering almost all of the standard office type of applications  it is better to buy the unique package that drives your specific business.
  2. Computers are becoming so inexpensive that we believe the repair vs. replace break point is so low that  switching to a new computer is trivial. Of course coupled with the above item you do not have a lot of stuff on your laptop.
  3. The increased processor power and increased screen sizes on smart phones means driving more web application into the phone
In a soft economy like we are currently experiencing, IT is one area in which we can clearly lower our cost to operate or gain more productivity for the same expenditure as in the prior year. The change from buying PC application software with your PC/ laptop really does not make sense with what is being offered in the market place.  Let's take a look at various options though not an exhaustive review.

GMail Mobile WebApp or Mail Client?

Gmail announced improvements made to Gmail for mobile, running in the iPhone and Android web browser only. First, you'll notice that it's a lot faster when performing actions like opening an email, navigating, or searching and if the data network drops out on you,  Gmail won't. You'll still be able to open recently read messages and to compose over a flaky, or non-existent, network connection. All this is achieved with aggressive caching and by leveraging new browser technologies, like HTML 5 and Gears.
