Justin Crotty writes why channel partners need to start embracing the cloud if they haven’t yet already.

“The intricacies of the cloud, especially with the limitless variety of applications set to be delivered, offers real opportunity for those partners capable of bringing all the pieces together to solve real business problems. It’s where the channel’s real value proposition will come into play. Cloud computing is real, it’s relevant; and it’s accelerating. Don’t sit on the sidelines and let others diminish your value and take your business. A great place to start is by calling your distributor to ask about available resources for the cloud.”

Toshiba building world’s lightest 13-inch laptop with fast charging SCiB battery?
Thomas Ricker explores a rumour around Toshiba possibly working on creating the “world’s lightest” notebook.

“Toshiba has a long history of making highly desirable ultraportables. Now, if today’s rumor pans out, it seem set to bust out another in the form of the world’s lightest (less than 1Kg with SSD) 13 incher. Besides sporting a 16:9 aspect ratio, USB 3.0 dock, and standard voltage CPU (a Core i5 is teased), this slim lappie features a 2nd SCiB (Super Charged ion Battery) power source that we’ve seen charging to 90 per cent in just 10 minutes in prototypes from way back in 2008.”

The Next iPhone’s Latest Feature: 720p Video
John Herrman shares some rumoured details about Apple’s next iPhone.

“The next iPhone is suspected to have an upgraded camera-we know it will have a flash-and 720p has been explicitly mentioned in rumors before. Also, it’s currently on the market in a handful of other phones, so it’d be kind of a disappointment if the next iPhone didn’t ship with it.”
