Another online news piece, this time for CRN Australia on Mio’s plans to expand GPS into the corporate market. Between this and and the entry below, it’s certainly been a good week for me on the gadget news front (albeit from wildly different perspectives in each case).
I’ve just had a news piece on how handheld divergence is crippling the enterprise published by ZDNet Australia. This came out of a nifty Gartner breakfast seminar I attended, though having to be in the city by 7:30am reminded me of why daily commuting can be such a drag.
I’ve got a piece on the spyware threat in the IT Alive section of The Australian today. The print edition also has a profile of anti-spyware researcher Sean McDonald from Sophos, but that hasn’t hit the site yet (and might not do so at all).
A piece I wrote for ZDNet Australia on Windows Vista’s Freeze Dry technology a couple of weeks ago had some interesting consequences. Details of the technology, most notably the name itself, hadn’t been announced before, and as a result both eWeek and ZDNet US ran hasty follow-ups the next day based on bare-bones confirmation from Microsoft. There’s nothing a specialist journo likes less than not getting first dibs on stuff relevant to their beat. I’m not that specialised a journo, so I’m happy just to have found the story.
