Samsung with 12″ Tablet in the Works

Spotify for Android and more

While most of the patent disputes are ugly things, sometimes you get some really cool information out of them. One such piece of infomation is that Samsung is preparing an 11.8″ tablet, with an extremely high resolution display; 2560×1600. It is also to have LTE connectivity, and (in my opinion) most likely a quad-core Samsung Exynos CPU. An 11.8″ tablet is going to be expensive, so we shall see how well it sells.

  • Facebook rolls out “save for later” feature for all mobile posts. While it is very feature slim at the moment, it is possible it could replace other “read it later” options. I use Pocket myself, which is great, but people are likely to opt for a solution that is a part of an application they use daily anyways. Facebook’s new feature has the opportunity to change the way users save stories. Via iMore, more here.
  • One of the killer applications for Android is the GMail application. An avid Google Apps user, their suite is a real difference maker. To that end, they have updated the GMail iOSapp. The changes in this recent update are;
    • Smoother animation and scrolling on iPhone and iPod touch.
    • Save picture attachments to your photo library. Touch and hold an image to save it.
    • Bug Fixes

Spotify offers up to 30 days of their premium service free for new Spotify users. Via Google Play Store, more here.
    • Hulu Plus is now on Apple TV. This is a huge win for Apple, as it increases the amount of content Apple TV offers for streaming. While this may be in reaction to the sale of Roku to Newscorp, it certainly solidifies the Apple TV’s place in the world of media streamers. Via Gizmodo, more here.

    Two apparently distinct movements are in the process of disrupting the world of enterprise application development: DevOps and Low-Code. DevOps is a cultural and organizational shift that empowers enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker – in particular, hand-coded software. Low-Code platforms, in contrast, provide a technology platform and visual tooling that empower enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker -- with little or no hand-coding required. ...
    "We do one of the best file systems in the world.

    While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
    Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
    The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
