Awesome network technology center, worth checking out. (@ Verizon Application Innovation Center)

Using mobile apps for interactive television

I’ve known Penn Jillette and Teller for a pretty long time now. We used to spend late nights hanging out in diners in New Jersey at all kinds of late hours.  They have always been amazingly creative and early adopters. Tomorrow night will be the premier of their new show "Penn and Teller Tell a […]

HTML5 Mobile Web Development

HTML5 first made my radar screen when Steve Jobs used it as the rationale for not including support for Adobe Flash on iPhones and iPads.  I had worked with a graphic typesetting programs that used font tagging before the first iteration of HTML. A good friend of mine, Chuck Musciano, wrote one of the first […]

Product of Collaboration–Motorola Xoom

So far the thing that I have liked the best at the CES show is the Motorola Xoom.    It is a tablet device.  I gave my wife Karen an iPad for Christmas, and I have definitely been envious of it.  I think that the timing for these types of devices is right now.  It was […]

Daily Worth – An interesting approach to financial IQ

I recently ran across Daily Worth, which has created a financial community for women.  The idea is to provide women with a useful resource to help them understand how to build wealth.  It was designed by and is intended  for bright and ambitious working women.    While women play an increasingly important role in making […]

I use both Verizon Wireless and Skype.  Verizon Wireless has a very reliable network.  Skype is a great application. Starting in March, I will be able to run Skype on my […]

Help Start a Dialog around Innovation

I’m going to be part of an Innovation Jam at the Verizon Developer Community Conference in San Jose, CA next week.  The conference is for mobile application development, which is an incredibly dynamic environment.  The innovation jam has been put together by WIP, the Wireless Industry Partnership to stimulate a dialog around innovating to face […]

A Massive Platform for Innovation and Collaboration

I thought that the biggest announcement of the2009 CTIA show was Verizon’s announcement to join the Joint Innovation Lab (JIL).  JIL will provide developers with a platform and access to more than a billion customers around the world in more than 70 countries.  This is a fundamental shift in how mobile applications are going to […]

Frankenstein’s Line Extension vs. The Innovator

The Consumer Electronics Show is an extremely big show and runs the gamut from cables, accessories, and video games, to cutting edge industrial technology.  It is really fun, especially if you can just walk around and look at things.  This year, I was lucky and got to spend half a day just wandering around.  I […]

Opening Networks Up

I was delighted to see that Kevin Werbach has been picked to co-lead the FCC Review for the Obama transition project.  I cannot think of a better person for the job.  I met Kevin sometime back in 2001 when he first came to Philadelphia.  Kevin had been editing Release 1.0 and had taken a faculty […]
