"Thus, until now, two third of you believe iPhoneOS to be the most future safe mobile operating system. This underlines Apple success of the iPhone introduction about 2 years ago.
Followed by Windows Mobile, which even more than the half of PUGcast readers believe to be the one to run future devices with.
Sybian and Android is equal about 40 % and it's hard to argue which one will succeed: Both are open source and address a huge developer community.
Surprisingly, Palm's new webOS (the successor of 15 years old Palm OS), is only of interest for about one fourth of the readers, which leaves room for interpretation. Do people not believe in the new mobile operating system or do they simply do not know enough about it at this stage to argue about it's future?
Let your readers tell us what they believe."
"The engineers from Cisco are doing a brilliant job in provision the infrastructure to today's data consumption. Now, Cisco's researcher come into play and predict a strong groth of mobile data usage, as we can see today with iPhones (iPhoneOS), gPhones (Android) and soon pPhones (webOS).
The iPhone is said to produce an equivalent data conspumption of 30 2G/3G handsets alltogether. A notebook produces even 15 times more than the iPhone.
They not only present nice graphics to illustrate their arguments, this also indicates pretty much what carriers should be aware of in the near future - until 2013.
According to Cisco, mobile data usage is roughly by 125 TB (TeraBytes) per month, said to be strongly increasing to 2000 TB (2 ExaBytes ) until 2013.
There are also demographoc factors, which have impact on data usage. Europe is identified as offering afforable data plans to sbscribers and this data usage is predicted to grow rapidly and stronger than Northern Amercian data consumption. The Asia Pacific region covering Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Honk Kong, Malaysia, etc. has the biggest consumption and in details it surely is Taiwan and Korea which are the key driver."
"Tealpoint's Palm Pre immitation of webOS for the PalmOS platform, called "TealOS", is a nice peace of software and once more a comittment of an long lasting software company to the Palm community. I am overwhelmed by Tealpoint's update activity, releasing two to three updates per day.Keep reading Tweak TealOS for More Productivity by Inverted Thinking...
As I have indicated last time, TealOS could be a security issue for those working with password databases and sensitive data in general. Coming back to their update policy, I found a nice workaround and new implementation within the latest updates on how to handle sensitive data.
Last week, I proposed to exclude security applications such as Secret, Splash ID, etc. from being displayed as cards in order to prevent misuse of sensitive data. But there is more you want to prevent from being captured as card and put on the desktop. Applications, such as Card Reader, Hotsync, file explorers, weather applications, settings, JVM, Kamera, SMS, Backup applications, tools and utilities are run once for a particular purpose and are not intended to be displayed as card on the desktop. Firstly, every card (screenshot) will take precious RAM and secondly the more cards one have the more it slows down the system.
Why not thinking the other way round?! Instead of excluding 30 applications, why not explicitly alowing just the few of applications to be placed as cards, which you really want to have on the desktop for fast access?"
Mr. Schuchert writes, "[f]or the last months we are facing many international readers and have a language mixture of English and German contributions due to international guest writers and our team of authors. Thus, we provide to filter all entries by language, so the reader can decide on his own whether he wants to read the full scope of articles or only those in English or German (or both)."Check out the English language articles over at PUGcast The Blog...
