Summoned To Work

Fledgling Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer upset Yahoo's cultural apple cart with the recently announced dictum that all employees must report to the office for work or resign their positions. Moving forward, the popular telecommuting policy enjoyed by many of its employees is significantly curtailed. While this represents a significant shift in culture at Yahoo, Meyer concluded that the policy change was necessary in order to get the company on the same page as Yahoo struggles for its very survival. Mayer reasoned that, if Yahoo is to survive, a sea-change was necessary to foster a new paradigm of cooperation and collaboration. Prior to announcing the new policy , Mayer tried the “be nice” approach with offer of free food and iPhones to lure workers into the office but to no avail.

Yahoo's worker policy change has raised a number of concerns regarding web developers who are heavy users of telecommuting. While Yahoo has found the practice to be unmanageable, the question becomes is this a failure of Yahoo's employees or its management? More importantly, how will this change in policy going to impact web developers who are contracted by companies such as Yahoo to work at home.

Just a Honk Away

App development company Honk Game House has just released an innovative app that threatens the livelihoods of parking meter attendants and tow truck drivers everywhere. Essentially, the app is payback for all of us who have been victimized by meter attendants who refuse to honor the “15 minute rule”. This universally accepted code of conduct states that “a fifteen minute grace period will be applied to errant drivers who have slightly overstayed their welcome at a metered parking spot.” Apparently, they didn't get the memo.

It is also sweet revenge for shoppers who forget where they parked at the mega mall. Hey, we're only human. Do you have any idea how many late model Honda Civics can be found in a 500 acre parking lot? But I
digress. Honk is a HD app for iPhone and iPad that is proactive in saving a bundle in parking tickets and plenty of shoe leather searching for misplaced cars. With a swipe of a finger, honk activates its GPS to effortlessly pin point your vehicle's location. Just to play it safe, the app also provides directions to the auto's location with a unique hand written memo function, photo of the vehicle's location and a voice memo function. It also tracks your metered time remaining with a minute by minute update

Tension on the Rise

Samsung and Apple continue to dominate the the lion's share of the smart phone and tablet market with an impressive array of mobile devices from which to choose. For years, Apple has enjoyed a reputation as the ultimate standard for mobile devices. However, the landscape has changed over time and Apple is finding itself in a heated battle with its Asian-based nemesis. It appears that Samsung is beginning to beat Apple at its own game.

Apple's early success triggered a slew of knock-off devices that were shamelessly copied and integrated to a number of Apple wanna-be's. Ironically, Apple's and Samsung's future may be more dependent on the court of law rather than the court of public opinion. Currently, both companies are participating in bloody litigation over who has the right to technology that is incorporated into many of the mobile devices that are on today's market. In fact, the technology has become so ubiquitous that the issue is no longer about manufacturing a device as good as Apple, but one that is superior to it.
