BYOD: Managed Correctly, not as Large a Problem as Once Thought [29392]
Chris Kawalek and John Renko Discuss the Strategy

Listen to Chris Kawalek, Senior Principal Product Director in Oracle Desktop Virtualization Marketing Group, and John Renko, Consulting Developer in the Oracle Desktop Virtualization Engineering Team, discuss management of BYOD in the workplace. Among the biggest problems facing IT staffs is the proliferation of OSes these BYODs use. Simplicity should be the watchword on the client side, Kawalek suggests and Renko concurs. Leave the complexity in the datacenter, he says, noting that a single desktop in multiple locations, whatever the end user device, is the desired state. This arrangement calls for core management facilities, a hypervisor and centralized storage in the datacenter.

Now Developers Can Use Java for Both iOS and Android Devices [28792]
Oracle Application Development Framework Makes this Possible

Oracle ADF Mobile solution enables developers to use the Java language to develop applications that install and run on both iOS and Android mobile devices. Shay Schmeltzer explains that the solution is based on a thin native container that installs as part of your application and makes it possible to run the same application unchanged on both Android and iOS devices. One element of the container is a headless lightweight JVM based on the Java ME CDC technology that allows the execution of Java code on your mobile device, he writes. Furthermore, ADF Mobile makes the UI development experience simpler as well.

'Why Ultra-Low Power Computing Will Change Everything' [28407]
ARM TechCom Keynote Address by Dr. Jonathan Koomey

Tori Wieldt reports on Dr. Jonathan Koomey's keynote address to ARM TechCom, where he noted that power consumption by computers has dropped by half every 1.5 years over the last 60 years, and battery life has made roughly a 10x improvement each decade since 1960. The major challenge facing designers at this juncture, according to Koomey, is reducing the power consumption of the computers in mobile devices. Researchers are studying light, heat, motion, blood sugar, and solar energy as power sources for these miniaturized computers. The University of Washington is developing a sensor that scavenges power from radio and TV signals, Wieldt writes.

What Do Download Numbers Really Tell You? [28311]
According to Simon Phipps, Not Much About Adoption

Simon Phipps, writing for InfoWorld, disputes the notion that the number of downloads says anything beyond a solution's brand strength and market opportunity. He cites the recent flurry of downloads of Windows 8 (four million in the first three days of GA) as evidence that downloads are easy to measure but reveal nothing concerning customer satisfaction or even implementation. Requests for upgrades and/or support offer a better measure of adoption for open source, Phipps asserts. The metrics provided by Ohloh, which came too late for Sun, deliver much more useful and telling information on the state of the open source software community.
