I was intrigued to see some research surface late last month which looked at job satisfaction rates. Shawn Achor wrote a blog published on the Harvard Business Review website entitled ‘The Happiness Dividend’, looking at why employees are unhappy in their work, and how companies can look to increase employee engagement.

Almost a month later and my custom Zune Originals HD arrived

As I wrote in my Zune HD review I ordered a platinum Zune HD from Amazon and received it promptly on launch day. I was so impressed with the Zune HD hardware that I ordered a custom Zune Originals model that day from the Zune Original website. Little did I know that I would be one of 7-8 customers, out of thousands, to suffer from a major ordering glitch that had my order stuck in limbo for just about a month. I am very pleased to report that my custom blue Zune HD arrived today and have some photos below showing it off.

Exclusive hands-on: Android beats the iPhone to full GPS voice navigation

There are hundreds of applications now available for my T-Mobile G1 Google Android device (see my review) in the Android Market, but honestly there are only about 15 or so that I have kept over the long haul and use regularly. I imagine the quality and choice offerings will go up as soon as Google turns on the ability for commercial applications. Today, we found out that one very high quality application and service will be available for the G1 in just over a week. TeleNav is bringing the first GPS navigation service to the T-Mobile G1 on 24 February. You will be able to download it on that day from the TeleNav website and eventually from the Android Market. Check out my video below and the image gallery for hands-on experiences with this software on my G1.

Chinese threat is a threat

I have to quote Lewis Page of the Register on this: A US government panel specially created to warn of danger from China has warned of danger from China.

Fujitsui U810 ultra-portable PC now available

I have been enjoying the mobile office functionality of the HTC Advantage (see my review) and am always on the lookout for other powerful mobile devices that can help me work where I want to be. One of the devices I have been keeping my eye on is the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 that looks a bit like a big brother to my old Sony CLIE UX 50. I just read on jkOnTheRun that the Fujitsu U810 is now up on the Fujitsu website and available for US$999 or US$1099. The only difference between the two is the version of Vista (Home vs. Business) and the inclusion of Microsoft Works or Office. Compared to other devices in this ultra-portable PC category these sound like very good prices and definitely have me interested.
