This is a summary of a QNX webinar that was just presented on July 10, 2014
by BlackBerry (BBRY) and QNX.
This was an anticipated seminar because many people are looking for answers
to questions they have about the big buzzword, the Internet of Things (IoT).
They also want to know what role does the cloud-based product QNX play within
The QNX webinar gave a good overview of what the QNX product was and how it
fit into the overall business market. They are operating system agnostic,
which means they can work with any device, not just one type of Operating
System. They have multi-OS adaptability.
They want to be totally inclusive of all devices and use one platform to
manage everything. They have focused on end-to-end security, which is a huge
issue across many industries as well as many applications.
They focused on the core principles which have to... (more)

The new wonder metal, graphene, is being looked at as a building block for
communications and electronic devices on the level of what the transistor was
sixty years ago.
Graphene is a one-atom thick, mesh-like (think hexagonal honeycomb or chicken
wire), semi metal that will add more battery-life into a smartphone among
other breakthrough ideas like bendable displays. It is also ten times
stronger than diamonds so its resiliency is perfect for use in a smartphone
or any other device ... (more)

5G Networks are being discussed and better defined by key industry
manufacturers and network carriers so they can be deployed in the 2020 time
period. They will represent a giant leap in capacity, baseline speeds and
overall capabilities. They have to. Consumers are turning to Smartphones
and tablets as the new ubiquitous edge technology for all their applications.
Many people have gotten a good taste of smartphones and all the applications
they can utilize with them. Now, the growi... (more)
In a recent Corning whitepaper, The Connectivity Premium, it discusses how
commercial real estate developers can profit from forward-looking strategies
in network infrastructure and wireless connectivity.
Corning quotes ABI research that points out there are over 10,000,000,000
mobile devices already connected wirelessly, with that number expected to
expand to 30,000,000,000 by 2020. With that type of growth, we need to expand
the network infrastructure and upgrade its capacities across all commercial
real estate because copper cannot handle the traffic that keeps growing
COMCAST's recent $45 billion acquisition of Time-Warner Cable was big news in
the Cable TV world, but it should be big news in the area of cloud computing
and network diversity.
Instead of looking at COMCAST as a cable TV provider, it is time that we
should be looking at it as another alternative to the traditional network
carriers like AT&T and Verizon for our data needs both at home and at the
