Consumerization in 2012: Cloud and mobile blurs into other people's IT

We are not far from a tipping point in IT where the majority of business solutions come from workers and the lines of business via the cloud and newer mobile platforms. While this is a sea change in the way we look at software and data ownership and management, it's clearly under way. What will happen to the traditional IT department as consumerization takes place and what should organizations do to get ready?

Danger/Microsoft lose ALL Sidekick data, do not reset your device

Engadget tipped us off on the news that all Sidekick users may lose their data due to a failure of the server that backs up and syncs all the data. I started out my wireless data experience with the original T-Mobile Sidekick, but thankfully have moved on to using services that I back up both locally and in the cloud. According to the T-Mobile forums data services provided by Danger, a Microsoft subsidiary, were experiencing a major service disruption that has now results in a loss of contacts, calendar entries, to-do list, and photos that were backed up on the server. This is pretty bad news for Sidekick owners and maybe the remedy should be for T-Mobile to replace Sidekicks with Google Android devices and drop the Sidekick line for good, seeing as how they will soon most likely be phased out anyways with the ownership of Danger by Microsoft.

German court orders Google to change TOS - a little late

File this under the slow march of justice. A German court just ordered Google to remove certain clauses from its terms of service because they might have given the company the ownership rights in consumer data. Only thing is, Google already removed those clauses, which it called "unfortunately framed," -- a year ago!

Did Scoble break EU law on Facebook?

I've been itching to get something written about Scoble's antics over on Facebook when he used the Plaxo script to scrape data as a way of pointing up what he believes is an issue around openness and data ownership. Way too much has been written but one aspect that was never surfaced was the question of legality.

Apple seems to have forgotten the phone in the iPhone

I just passed 10 days of iPhone ownership after waiting in line for 24 hours and then posting my first and second impressions of the device. I was quite excited about the iPhone after finding out that the AT&T data plan was reasonably priced and gave it an honest evaluation. Although the iPhone is priced the same as high end smartphones, I tried to resist comparing it to the Windows Mobile and S60 operating systems since they blow the iPhone out of the water in terms of functionality and the iPhone is more of a high end feature phone with iPod functionality. So looking at it as a high end feature phone, I have to say the iPhone falls flat when it comes to mobile phone functionality and features. The free mobile phone you get when you sign up with your carrier has more functionality and performs better as a phone than the iPhone.

VA withdraws gun ownership data from the Web

If Joe citizen has a hankering to see who can carry a registered concealed hand gun in Virginia, he'll be sorry to learn that the state police are withdrawing the database of permit holders for public viewing, reports the Times-Dispatch. According to an opinion by Attorney General Bob McDonnell, the database was only meant to be used as investigative tool, and therefore is an exception to the state Freedom of Information Act requiring public access to many government documents.

New members join the APML Workgroup

Chris Saad pinged me the other to make the announcement that a number of new contributors have joined the APML Workgroup to assist in developing a standard for Attention data. As Chris wrote in his message, there is a undeniable need for a standard framework that gives us ownership and control over our Attention data. APML (Attention Profile Markup Language) is a significant undertaking to develop that framework.
