Apple iPad and iPhone News

For Apple iPad news, check out All Things Digital (better yet, download it from the Apple Store and read it on your mobile device).

In addition to the iPad, All Things Digital covered the latest scoop on Apple's announcement for iPhone OS 4.0.  Several key developments are coming:
  • Will allow non-Apple application multi-tasking
  • New Game Center, a social network for iPhone game players
  • iAds advertising for iPhone apps (Steve Jobs says they "won't suck" and will make iPhone app developer lots of money)
  • iBooks--the iPad book reader--will be available for the iPhone

And while you are there, don't miss the Nitrozac and Snaggy comics.

Of course, it is a little ironic for ATD's iPhone app to have one article about Apple not supporting Flash on the iPhone followed by their own news article that actually tries to use Flash.

About Me

My photo

I am a project-based consultant, helping data-intensive firms use agile methods and automation tools to replace legacy reporting and bring in modern BI/Analytics to leverage Social, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Visualizations, and Predictive Analytics. For several world-class vendors, I led services teams specializing in providing software implementation and custom application development. Based on scores of successful engagements, I have assembled proven methodologies and automated software tools.

During twenty years of technical consulting, I have been blessed to work with smart people from some of the world's most respected organizations, including: FedEx, Procter & Gamble, Nationwide, The Wendy's Company, The Kroger Co., JPMorgan Chase, MasterCard, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Siemens, American Express, and others.

I was educated at Valparaiso University and the University of Cincinnati, graduating summa cum laude. In 1990, I joined Information Builders, the vendor of WebFOCUS BI and iWay enterprise integration products, and for over a dozen years served in branch leadership roles. For several years, I also led technical teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the custom software services arm of Xerox.

Since 2007, I have provided enterprise BI services such as: strategic advice; architecture, design, and software application development of intelligence systems (interactive dashboards and mobile); data warehousing; and automated modernization of legacy reporting.
