Mitsubishi drops LCD HDTVs to focus on 73-inch and above sized displays
Engadget
Richard Lawler writes that Mitsubishi is downsizing its TV operations.

“(Mitsubishi) has made it official — it is downsizing TV operations, closing some offices and leaving the LCD TV business entirely. As the only company still selling rear projection sets to consumers, a letter from senior VP Cayce Blanchard indicates the plan is to focus on selling DLP and Laservue TVs in sizes above 73-inches where its flat panel competitors rarely reach. It will also keep selling projectors, display walls, printers and large public display screens — like the Cowboys Stadium set — to other companies. Of course, as sad as everyone is to see the LCDs go, that just means there’s even more time to focus on the 92-inch DLP that should hit shelves later this year.”

Mashable
Todd Wasserman shares results from a Small Business Technology Poll from AT&T which looks at the use of mobile apps in businesses.

“The AT&T Small Business Technology Poll, based on a December online survey of 2,246 small business owners and/or employees responsible for IT, found that 38 per cent of such businesses couldn’t go without mobile apps. Nearly three-fourths (72 per cent) indicate they use mobile apps in their businesses. GPS/navigation and mapping mobile apps are by far the most popular; 49 per cent of respondents say they use them for their small businesses. The main reasons the companies say they use such apps is to save time, increase productivity and cut costs. For the purposes of the survey, a small business is defined as having between two and 50 part-time and full-time employees.”
