Cellular show in Orlando to offer Wi-Fi network | Computerworld News & Features Story -- "Tom Wheeler, president and CEO of the CTIA, said in a statement that the decision to offer Wi-Fi access at the cellular show marks 'a leap in to the next era of wireless,' adding that 'there is a great, synergistic opportunity for Wi-Fi and existing wireless carriers to work together to build a seamless national network that will bring consumers into the next era of the wireless Internet.'"

If only! I'm a little skeptical about this, though at least some of the major domestic carriers (Voicestream, Sprint) have made investments in Wi-Fi service providers and are more likely to try integrate rather than obliterate.

If the two can be successfully married, one can imagine "always-on" wireless Internet to laptops, PDAs, cellphones and (probably) other Internet appliances.

-- "Amazon Calls New iMac Its Fastest-Selling Computer According to Amazon's sales data, systems manufactured by Apple (including the Titanium PowerBook G4 and iBook) currently claim 10 of the top 25 bestseller spots at the online giant's computer store."

Apple may finally be on the road to increasing their marketshare in the PC industry. With so many hit products selling in such volumes, their numbers are bound to improve. Go Steve!
Bless me Father, for I have not blogged

With the exception of yesterday's post about Mac OS X and Windows 7, it's been over a year since I last blogged here, and nearly two years since I've posted anything technical. I went underground during that time, focusing on writing intranet blogs and articles and neglecting the "real world." As of today, I no longer have an intranet to blog to (I was laid off), so it's time once again to turn my attention to what's going on out here on the big, bad Internet.

Watch this space in coming days for my thoughts on Apple products, personal productivity in the enterprise, mobile and remote workforce technology, and virtualization (along with meanderings into a wide variety of other topics).
