Interview with Ted Ladd, formerly lead evangelist, Platform Group, Palm, Inc. WBT: Can you tell us a little about the two recent Palm releases - the m100 and the Palm VIIx? TL: Let me answer, if I may, from a platform perspective. (When I say Palm I am including the Palm device business and the Palm licensees team - like Sony, Nokia, Motorola.) Handheld devices right now are separating into two different segments. The first segment is for your grandmother. These are low-cost devices with basic functionality, tried-and-true technologies aimed at people who need handheld computers but don't necessarily even have a laptop or desktop computer. Technological neophytes basically, just people who want the personal organizer-type features of the Palm. Previously that meant the Palm III series; now it's the m100. From what I've seen of the reviews and some of the early number... (more)

Wireless Smorgasbord

Living on the Edge Trade shows and conferences are fantastic opportunities for learning, as well as networking with others in the industry. Where else can you hang out with hundreds, even thousands, of other wireless enthusiasts? I've recently spoken with many readers (at conferences of course!) and all agreed that conferences are extremely valuable to their professional lives. In an increasingly competitive business world, it's survival of the fittest, and the more you know, the fitter you are. In surveys, we've discovered that many of our readers regularly attend i-technology c... (more)

Cutting Through the Unwired Hype

Marketing hype is everywhere in our lives. It's unavoidable no matter where you go - flipping through television channels, reading newspapers or magazines, or driving along and looking at the billboards on the highway. Now, don't get me wrong; advertising has its place. It shows the market what's out there, and the revenue pays for many goods and services, including the very magazine that you're now holding in your hands. It's not the advertising, itself, that's a problem, but rather the hype in the advertising that's very hard to cut through for those making purchasing decisions... (more)

Beyond Words and Wires…Recovery Begins

In the aftermath of the horrific events of September 11, 2001, the entire nation came together to mourn the loss of those who died and suffered, and to plan a way to recover as a society as best we could. No words that I could write here would be adequate to convey how awful the atrocities were to witness or even to watch unfold on TV. Nor can mere words ever do justice to the extraordinary scenes of overwhelming human bravery and the endurance of the human spirit. Along with amazing individuals like New York City area volunteers who, as you read this, will undoubtedly still be s... (more)

Wireless Dreams

Beep, beep, beep goes my alarm clock on an average weekday morning. I roll out of bed and pick it up, but I don't just absentmindedly search for the snooze button as I usually do - instead I pick it up and, flipping open the lid, point it at my TV. Through its infrared transmitter I turn it on, and watch a few minutes of the morning news. Realizing it's time to get moving if I'm not going to be late to work, I use it again to turn the TV off, and take it with me to the bathroom, where I turn on the speaker radio, leave it on the counter, and hop into the shower. It gives me my mo... (more)
