Several months ago, as the Obama administration started examining NASA's budget critically, I suggested that what American education could really use was a space race. Who would we be racing against?
Like many folks, I don't go to the movies nearly as much as I used to. Big screen high-definition TVs, DVD players, Blu-ray players, and surround-sound systems, along with the cheap availability of titles on disc and streamed over the net now means that the movies comes to me when I want them, and on my own terms (also, my popcorn is better and cheaper!). However, over the holidays I went to see the Avatar, the James Cameron CGI space-fest. But rather than go see it in standard 2D, I opted for a 3D showing because I wanted something extra. While 3D is interesting (you could say it adds a new dimension to the movie going experience), will 3D make me go to the cinema more?
E-textbooks have been slow to catch on, partly because textbook publishers have a multi-billion dollar industry to protect and partly because devices suitable for accessing them either lacked functionality or weren't ubiquitous enough to be of benefit to students. However, if CES, a show by its very name focused on the consumer space rather than education or business, has shown us anything, it's that there are more than enough interesting devices available to let e-textbooks take off.
Every year that I have gone to CES, there is one event that stands out above all the rest and that is the Pepcom Digital Experience press event. I could actually go to this event, wander the floor for a couple of hours, meet with about five people and have a great CES experience. I attended last night and spent the entire three hours it was open walking through row and row of vendors, something around 125 total. I stuck to the vendors in the mobile space and those who I have some other interest in and they included Microsoft, HTC, Lenovo, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Roku, Wilson Electronics, OLED Association, PowerMat, Barnes & Noble, Motorola, LG, Novatel Wireless, and many more. I wrote up some thoughts of my favorites who had products that really interested me and included them in my CES 2010 image gallery.
I talked a bit about the FLO TV service and new device on The Mobile Gadgeteer, but with today's CES 2010 announcement FLO TV is branching into the smartphone space. They announced a partnership with the folks who make the iPhone Mophie Juicepack batteries to launch a sleeve that fits on your iPhone or iPod touch to give you a wireless FLO TV experience. FLO TV is television sent out over the airwaves and does not use your wireless data for streaming television content. These products will start shipping during the first half of this year.
Most of the excitement in the mobile phone space this week focused on the announcement of the Motorola DROID on Verizon Wireless. Looking at the Verizon Wireless press release archive page you have to scroll down to the 6th or 7th story to find that the RIM BlackBerry Storm2 was also announced this week with availability occuring a couple of days ago on Wednesday, 28 October. Crackberry.com has a detailed review that covers the device in detail and it looks like the Storm2 is the device that the original Storm should have been. RIM tried some different things with the Storm, primarily with their clickable display, that took away from the BlackBerry experience and this no longer seems to be the case.
Last week I had the opportunity to spend time with SAP CTO Vishal Sikka and separately SAP executive board member John Schwarz, and I've been ruminating on our conversations a lot since those meetings. Fortunately I was part of a group of bloggers who have been following SAP closely, and their questions and insight were a valuable addition to the conversations and my education given their deep knowledge and practical experience.
