Amazon has launched new web services designed to simplify the building and operation of mobile applications using their cloud as a back end. Cognito provides an identity management platform and key/value store, and is complemented by Mobile Analytics. The AWS Mobile SDK has been updated to version 2.0 to provide integration with the new services, and there are samples in […]



BYOD

11Dec12

I’ve spent a good part of the last year working on mobile strategy, so I get asked a lot about Bring Your Own Device (BYOD[1]). This is going to be one of those roll up posts, so that I can stop repeating myself (so much). It’s not about cost (of the device) A friend last […]


I’ve been on the road now for a week and a half, which has brought me into contact with some of the slowest, most expensive Internet access I’ve suffered in some time. I’m used to mobile Internet being expensive and slow, but this has been even worse. My problems started in an airport lounge in […]


Too many devices I seem to accumulated a proliferation of devices recently that want to have SIM cards in them for mobile data: Personal laptop (well actually a tablet, but not in the way that people use that label these days) Work laptop iPhone (not just data) Android phone (could be not just data, but […]

A little while ago I wrote about my 3 MiFi. To cut a long story short I wasn’t impressed, and rather wish that I had sent it back and got a refund. My mood wasn’t helped by the subsequent price drop of the PAYG package from £99 to £49 (albeit without 3 months of PAYG […]


I had great hopes for MiFi. I was going to be like Pig-Pen from Peanuts, just with fewer flies and more connectivity. I would walk the earth with my own little bubble of Internet goodness. No more messing about with dongles for the netbook. My iPod Touch would become like an iPhone (just without voice). […]


Telepersona

This is one of those posts that I’ve been meaning to write for ages, and just not got around to it. I’d like to pull together some of the concepts that I’ve touched upon before such as persona, and the fact that telephone numbers are a primitive form of digital identity. Much of what I […]
