Amazon Kindle Fire could Burn Up iPad's Lead | ITProPortal.com - 0 views

  •  
    This survey shows that iPad with the $199 price tag is a 'serious" contender for the ipad. I had someone ask me about Kindle fire vs. iPad. Definitely people are comparing it. 

    Many people are definitely comparing the ipad to the Kindle fire although the Kindle fire has two issues that don't have anything to do with Amazon: the droid OS and the Droid app store. The droid OS still lacks in touch responsiveness from the reviews I read. The Droid app store is a lot more open but also includes more "junk" and even some privacy and virus laden things from what I hear. Does this matter to the average person who just wants a smaller device and a $199 price tag - we'll see. Tablets are definitely in our future. You can see the redesign of women's pocketbooks reflecting this!

The World Is Flat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 2 views

  • The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century is an international bestselling book by Thomas L. Friedman that analyzes globalization,
    • #1: Collapse of Berlin Wall--11/9/89: The event not only symbolized the end of the Cold War, it allowed people from other side of the wall to join the economic mainstream.
    • #2: Netscape--8/9/95: Netscape and the Web broadened the audience for the Internet from its roots as a communications medium used primarily by 'early adopters and geeks' to something that made the Internet accessible to everyone from five-year-olds to ninety-five-year olds. The digitization that took place meant that everyday occurrences such as words, files, films, music and pictures could be accessed and manipulated on a computer screen by all people across the world.
    • #3: Workflow software: The ability of machines to talk to other machines with no humans involved was stated by Friedman. Friedman believes these first three forces have become a "crude foundation of a whole new global platform for collaboration."
    • #4: Uploading: Communities uploading and collaborating on online projects. Examples include open source software, blogs, and Wikipedia. Friedman considers the phenomenon "the most disruptive force of all."
    • #5: Outsourcing: Friedman argues that outsourcing has allowed companies to split service and manufacturing activities into components which can be subcontracted and performed in the most efficient, cost-effective way. This process became easier with the mass distribution of fiber optic cables during the introduction of the World Wide Web.
    • #6: Offshoring: The internal relocation of a company's manufacturing or other processes to a foreign land to take advantage of less costly operations there. China's entrance in the WTO allowed for greater competition in the playing field. Now countries such as Malaysia, Mexico, Brazil must compete against China and each other to have businesses offshore to them.
    • #7: Supply-chaining: Friedman compares the modern retail supply chain to a river, and points to Wal-Mart as the best example of a company using technology to streamline item sales, distribution, and shipping.
    • #8: Insourcing: Friedman uses UPS as a prime example for insourcing, in which the company's employees perform services--beyond shipping--for another company. For example, UPS repairs Toshiba computers on behalf of Toshiba. The work is done at the UPS hub, by UPS employees.
    • #9: In-forming: Google and other search engines are the prime example. "Never before in the history of the planet have so many people-on their own-had the ability to find so much information about so many things and about so many other people", writes Friedman. The growth of search engines is tremendous; for example take Google, in which Friedman states that it is "now processing roughly one billion searches per day, up from 150 million just three years ago".
    • #10: "The Steroids": Personal digital devices like mobile phones, iPods, personal digital assistants, instant messaging, and voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

    This is all about the ten flatteners and what they are.

One Laptop per Child - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  • The One Laptop Per Child Association, Inc. (OLPC) is a U.S. non-profit organization set up to oversee the creation of an affordable educational device for use in the developing world. Its mission is "To create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning."[1] Its current focus is on the development, construction and deployment of the XO-1 laptop.
  • To create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning.
  • OLPC lists five core principles:[7]

      • Child ownership
      • Low ages. Both hardware and software are designed for elementary school children ages 6–12.
      • Saturation
      • Connection
      • Free and open source
  •  
    This is the wikipedia description of OLPC. It consists of many aspects of the project.
  •  
    The concept of OLPC is a fascinating one. There are many issues with trading inside Africa but perhaps the coolest aspect of this is the "mesh" concept where one computer literally grabs internet off another OLPC that is nearby. The hand crank is also very cool as well.
