re: Google Nexus 7: Small Tablet To Beat
Big fan of the 7-inch tablet space. As a Nexus 7 owner, I'm glad to see Google focus on it and release a new version. I've been happy with it but wondered why the device wasn't getting more attention, coverage, advertising. It has been that rare thing in consumer tech: a quiet success story (seems high-profile devices either succeed or fail LOUDLY). I can say from experience that the Nexus is a huge bargain at $200.

Been thinking about getting a not-expensive (read: not an iPad) tablet. Perhaps this will be the one.

re: Google Nexus 7: Small Tablet To Beat
Eric, I read your stuff all the time and really appreciate your coverage. What I'm surprised about is that I'm not seeing a story about Chromecast. In my mind, Google just completely won the connected TV wars. Forget an Apple TV and Microsoft's Xbox One. Google just beat them all with this cheap device. Developers will add the Casting capability to more and more applications (think games) and soon we'll all be able to use the best screen in the house, as they repeatedly said, for any content we can get on any of the devices we have. This is a huge win in my mind and I'm surprised at how little coverage it's getting. Am I missing something?

Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
