One of the hidden costs of any conversion is training large numbers of non-IT workers on a new system. Microsoft Partner Global Graphics has created the software equivalent of a three ring binder. Learning curve ? Approximately zero. The software application, designed from the ground up for the enterprise marketplace and Windows8 tablets allows you to gather up and collate documents from anywhere in any format – PPT, DOC, XLS,PDF, and then assign to pages and tabs within a smart equivalent of a three ring binder. You can share and archive binders and content selectively and confidentially and collaborate with friends and colleagues anywhere on the globe. Personal applications are also possible.
The content display is instantly familiar regardless of computer skills of the employee. And by using existing business documents, there is no re-scanning or conversion required to bring in existing documentation and reference materials.
Pages can be set to automatically update, and it is possible to add annotations, edit pages and documents, and electronically search by phrase, word or tab.TPN Interview by Andy McCaskey, SDRNews and Daniel J. Lewis, The Audacity To Podcast.
Moving the Newspaper industry into the digital world is a challenge around the world. The tablet reader is probably the best thing that has happened to newspapers – and this new service called PressReader allows you to aggregate over 2300 newspapers from around the world – replicas of thousands of newspapers for a low fee of $30 per month. The traditional business model is no longer sustainable – but online versions of newspapers in web page form is not kept pace. The form factor of the tablet and availability of WiFi has changed the physical delivery of content as well as the mode of consumption. With a natural-feeling reading process, the tablet makes it much more newspaper-like and opens up a whole new group of consumers.

LTE is being rolled out but it doesn’t mean the next version of wireless is not going to rear it’s head. Your home wireless is going to pass 802.11n (with 802.11ac) and you will soon pass a Gbps mark.
TPN Live Stream of CES
With the booth move to North hall, I expect our live stream will be off the charts. There will be a lot of traffic where we are so our exposure will increase ten-fold.
Never before have I been this excited about CES. With CES being the largest show floor I am hoping to see a lot of innovative technologies and great new gadgets.
Then there are the after parties. Lots of great events where you can meet the cast and characters that cover CES year after year.
This is the cant-miss show of the year and I am excited to be part of it.
