WEB 2.0 - Net honchos to discuss Web opportunities

Attendees at this week's Web 2.0 conference will discuss new business opportunities on the Internet, such as online video and mobile Internet services.

Some big vendors are taking advantage of the conference's popularity to announce new products and partnerships. Among them are:

  • Hewlett-Packard, as part of its Print 2.0 initiative to improve printing from Web sites, will announce new relationships with large Web publishers, like Disney.com, Microsoft's Windows Live Spaces social network and blogging service, Yahoo's Flickr photo sharing site and the popular Graffiti application for Facebook.
  • MySpace and Skype are partnering to let MySpace members make free voice calls via the MySpace instant messaging service. The new service, called MySpace IM with Skype, will integrate MySpace's IM service with Skype's Internet voice communications services, and will be generally available in November.
  • Fast Search & Transfer will unveil Fast Active Mobile, a mobile search and personal recommendations platform that wireless carriers can implement to offer these services to their customers. Fast Active Mobile will build a profile for every wireless subscriber, taking into account their searches, product views, purchases and other activities and information.
  • NewsGator Technologies, an enterprise RSS vendor, will announce Social Sites, an add-on to its RSS Enterprise Server, designed to enhance Microsoft's Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 by making it easier to discover what colleagues within the organization are doing.
The Web 2.0 Summit ends Friday.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
