Women, Innovation, and the Power of Mobile

As we continue to look for ways to grow our economy, it’s important that we fully utilize all of the innovative and creative talent we have in our country. That’s why I’m so excited to be featured with Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz (Florida) and Intellectual Property Czar Victoria Espinel at the Second Annual GlobalWIN Luncheon in Washington, DC, on July 26 in the Library of Congress.

How 3G wireless connectivity is saving lives in underserved communities

I recently came across a blog post and photos on the Wireless Access for Health project (WAH) by the Center for Health Market Innovations. I have always been fascinated by the benefits that wireless connectivity can bring to underserved communities, particular in the area of e-health, and this project is really something extraordinary.

Time to Take the Mobile Web Seriously

If you develop native applications, you live on the left-hand side of this image. You’re close to phone internals and you can use hardware APIs to take full advantage of sensors, location based services , GPS, camera and other components inside the phone. Of course, that also means that you have to port, test and maintain versions for all the platforms your customers use — but you can’t have everything.

Wireless Mobile Technology Brings Positive Changes to Education

As a great precursor to Wireless EdTech 2011 this October, the ISTE 2011 (International Society for Technology in Education) conference held this June was a massive gathering of the best and brightest in a variety of fields relating to education technology. Conferences such as these provide the perfect grounds for leaders, who would not otherwise cross paths, to meet and discover ways to collaborate on how to best integrate technology into the classroom

Repatriation: A Win for the US Economy

The latest round of gloomy economic numbers should add greater urgency to bipartisan efforts to pass repatriation legislation. American businesses have an estimated $1 trillion sitting offshore, and many in Congress would like to bring that cash home with a lower tax rate as an incentive.

E-rate Funds Go Mobile

Hats off to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for allotting E-rate funds to explore how providing students with discounted mobile broadband access off school grounds can improve education at our nation’s public schools. The “E-rate Deployed Ubiquitously 2011 Pilot Program” (EDU2011) will enable 35,000 students at 14 schools in 20 states to benefit from anywhere, anytime learning.

Dual Cores—Is Anyone Really taking Advantage of Them?

I recently spoke with Kevin Kwang of ZD Net Asia to discuss the state of mobile multi-core processors. I pointed out that while it’s exciting to see powerful, dual-core Snapdragon processors commercially available (in products like the HTC EVO™ 3D and HP TouchPad), if developers aren’t coding their applications with distinct APIs that take advantage of multiple cores, the power of the hardware is often underutilized.

Helping Migrant Children Succeed

If you’ve ever changed schools as a child, you know how hard it can be. Different teachers and curriculum. Different academic achievement standards. Different graduation requirements. Plus the challenge of making new friends and fitting into a different social environment.
