James Sherwood writes about LG’s new GW620 smartphone device.

“From what little information the firm has let slip, though, we know that the GW620 has a 3in touch-screen display, a front-facing video camera – and therefore 3G connectivity – and a slide-out Qwerty keyboard. It looks like it has a 3.5mm headphone socket and a micro USB port. As far as the GW620’s other features go, LG only gave fleeting references to ‘social networking functions.’”

Brian X. Chen offers his thoughts on the Apple iPhone 3.1 device.

“IPhone 3.1’s added ability to sort apps in iTunes 9 is a must-have feature, and the Genius recommendation system for iPhone apps is just OK. If you absolutely love your jailbroken iPhone and unauthorized apps, stay away from this upgrade for a little while: We’re sure the hacker community is working on making Cydia accessible for 3.1 soon. Otherwise, if you don’t care about jailbreaking, download away.”

Susan Hanley provides some tips from [email protected] about what businesses can do to better manage a team of employees.

“‘Keep the team small if possible.’ The article recommends teams of no more than five to seven people. I have a client who once told me that teams who achieve the best outcomes are never bigger than three people. I’ve worked on plenty of teams that are much larger than seven, but they all included sub-teams of much smaller groups. I always recommend that portal governance bodies include no more than eight people. It’s just hard to get anything accomplished when the team is too large.”
