Oscars, BES 12 and more this week in channel history

Late February is Oscar season.  While it’s not often we make the connection between celebrities and the channel, it’s not entirely inconceivable.  Also in this week in channel history, BES 12 turns one year old, and we look back on the launch of Computer Dealer News’ website.

February 28th, 2014: Of the smartphone users surveyed by IDC who said they were regular moviegoers, 94 per cent said they’ll be watching the Oscars on Sunday and 47 per cent said they’ll be using their smartphones to share their thoughts during the broadcast.  With the Academy Awards coming under fire this year for lack of representation, are moviegoers more or less engaged than before?

February 25th, 2014: It’s hard to imagine that BlackBerry’s Enterprise Services 12 is already a year old, but the latest version of its flagship enterprise mobility management solution was launched just over a year ago today.

February 26th, 2013: Dell may not have won a coveted Oscar statuette at the 85th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood the other night but two years ago, the company’s hardware solutions helped others get nominated in the visual effects category.

February 5th, 2013: Finally, this month, the CDN website that readers may have grown accustomed to, turns two years old.  We hope to continue to provide you with the kind of experience you’ve come to expect from ITWC — the leading online information resource for Canadian IT professionals.
