“(They are) two different social-network oriented phones: Kin 1, and Kin 2. Kin 1 is the phone previously known as ‘Turtle,’ a little palm (as in the body part, not the company) sized portrait QWERTY slider with a five megapixel camera. Kin 2 was previously known amongst the whisperers as ‘Pure,’ and is a landscape QWERTY slider with an eight megapixel camera.”

There’s a change happening in business – every company is becoming a media company…
Tom Foremski writes how the media is impactiing businesses.
“The reality is we now live in a multi-platform, multi-channel, micro-media world, and the trend is moving towards ever greater media fragmentation – vidcasts, podcasts, blogs, micro-blogging, Twitter, etc. It is no longer possible to operate a business the old way – such as sending out a news release on Businesswire and briefing a handful of journalists, and sitting back. Today you need to do that … and more, much more. Every company needs to master these media technologies, and the best media practices, of a rapidly fragmenting media world.”
“One approach to providing more secure remote access is to allow access only from company-controlled hardware. The more a company wants to empower work-from-anywhere, though, the more onerous this burden becomes as it requires providing a well-secured company laptop (which in most companies still cost almost twice as much as desktops) to every teleworker. Hardware, software and licensing, and support costs rapidly mount and inevitably the organization has to become selective about who it makes this investment in. The goal, though, is not to have to assume you can know in advance all the people who might contribute if freed from location restrictions, but to make the enterprise itself borderless and empower anyone who might want to work, whenever and wherever they wish to.”
