  • CIO Rebecca Jacoby steers Cisco's IT ship

    By Stephen Lawson | 14 December, 2010 08:29

    Running the internal IT operations of Cisco Systems is a big job not just because of the size of the company -- more than 70,000 employees worldwide and a market capitalisation in the range of $US100 billion -- but also because Cisco is continually developing new IT products across a broad range of technologies and is known for rapidly adopting those products for its own use. Cisco CIO Rebecca Jacoby spoke with IDG News Service on the sidelines of the NetWork conference last week and shared some insights into the legendary enterprise IT company's own enterprise IT.

  • Windows Phone: The best platform you should never use

    By Matt Weinberger | 29 August, 2014 05:45

    It is with mixed emotions that I tell you that my experiment of using naught but the HTC One (M8) with Windows for a week is officially over. And I have to say: I'm relieved.

  • The top 14 hidden features in Windows, iOS, and Android

    By Christopher Null | 21 August, 2014 23:07

    You may think you're a high-tech power user who knows all the nooks and crannies of Windows, iOS, and Android, but let's be realistic: There could be at least a few undocumented (or poorly documented) commands, control panels, and apps that have slipped by you--maybe more than a few.

  • The 6 best tablets for getting work done in 2014

    By Jared Newman | 21 August, 2014 23:03

    A few years ago, it was easy to scoff at the idea of using tablets for productivity. The hardware was too weak, and the software was too limited, so turning a tablet into a work device made sense only for a few fringe users.

  • Five things Microsoft needs to do to save Windows Phone

    By Ryan Faas | 20 August, 2014 02:04

    At this point, it's obvious Windows Phone is in trouble. The platform remains a distant third in almost every market behind Android handsets and the iPhone. It remains far behind behind both platforms in terms of available apps. Its market share contracted last quarter and many people don't even know the platform is out there. About the only good news for Windows Phone is that seems to be holding steady ahead of BlackBerry.

  • The iPhone's sapphire future comes into focus

    By Philip Michaels | 16 August, 2014 08:40

    This may be anathema for someone in the business of writing about tech to say, but I'm not all that interested in iPhone rumors. Shipping products are what grab my attention, not unicorns and phantasms. The minute Tim Cook holds up the new device is the minute it's worthwhile to start examining features and specs, and all the speculation ahead of time is usually just the noise separating one Apple press event from the next.

  • I switched back to an iPhone - and I'm disappointed

    By Nancy Gohring | 14 August, 2014 01:25

    It's been a long time since I had an iPhone. I've spent a few years wishing I had one again. But now that I do, I'm not as pleased as I expected to be.

    By Tony Ibrahim | 30 July, 2014 15:20
