@G I thought you left? Yes, but Samsung is a big player so Tizen may be big. (I've upgrade Android to Ubuntu on adevice.) But Tizen allows root access to users and MDM software is usually an Enterprise add on not a phone feature.
Best way to manage wireless is via wireless provider. Wireless radio allows total control of device by ISP at the firmware level. Re business, in addition to provider the device manufacturer also has complete control of your device at the firmware (ESN) level. Even when device is "off" (but batteries still installed). Consider recent Chinese hacking and fact all devces manufactured in China.
"E2 Radio" had sound and chat; ON24 (other Dell presentations) has talking head in one corner with slide presentation foremost; Microsoft usually goes between screen shots and presenter (plus audio). Watching someone holding a mike and in front of a brick wall has no added value.
@Georgia: I've actually been using a Win 8 8" tablet as a laptop replacement the past month, and I must say, it can work. The biggest issue I've seen is, limited ports and limited out-of-the-box peripherals. But that all can be worked out, including as 3rd parties come in to fill the gap.
No one forced us to attend this presentation, and we could have dropped offline to do other things if required, so no one should ask to be reimbursed for their time due to a technical problem. Sometimes problems like this just happen. Goodbye and have a nice weekend.
There are several of us here moderating and addressing the technical issues that were encountered. We are working to post the on-demand version as quickly as possible and will absolutely be sending out any incentives that were offered. Thanks everyone for your time today.
We know today's mobile users carry more devices and each device users more bandwidth and we obviously can not tollerate quality issues. Time is valuable and many of us are doing multiple things even during this webcast and I still working on work stuff while watching and listening to the replay for example.
IW - for debugging purposes... I never had audio and video for this webinar, and haven't had this problem when attending other webinars. I am running XP PRO, Firefox 29.0.1, and QuickTime 7.7.5. QuickTime kept crashing every time I reloaded (refreshed) the page where the video was suppoed to display.
So...this was just a chance for them to talk at us? This is not how people communicate nowadays. You should have some interactivity. No one attends webinars to be talked at and not at least have a Q&A session.
Firefox asks to load Quicktime and Flash on reload of page. Flash crashed message on Video. Still get weak sound, Quicktime for sound? Updated both (usually get "update flash" message if required), still no joy.
5 Top Federal Initiatives For 2015As InformationWeek Government readers were busy firming up their fiscal year 2015 budgets, we asked them to rate more than 30 IT initiatives in terms of importance and current leadership focus. No surprise, among more than 30 options, security is No. 1. After that, things get less predictable.
. We've got a management crisis right now, and we've also got an engagement crisis. Could the two be linked? Tune in for the next installment of IT Life Radio, Wednesday May 20th at 3PM ET to find out.
