Thoughts on the BlackBerry Storm

Blackberry Storm – A Huge Disappointment
Network World
Mitchell Ashley offers his thoughts on the new BlackBerry Storm smartphone.

“The BlackBerry Storm has a long way to go before it equals the iPhone in many respects. I’m not saying the Storm is a complete, across the board failure but the Storm fails in its most important aspect of the product — the touch interface. Blackberry Storm’s touch interface is a big disappointment for two reasons. First, it’s very slow…and Second…it’s slow to recognize when the device has been rotated.”

Charlie Sorrel writes about Google’s GDrive, which is rumoured to be launching soon.

“The idea seems to be that you upload all of your data to Google’s servers and then use that instead of a hard-drive. More likely is that you mirror your computer’s drive at Google and then changes are seamlessly copied across your various devices and the web as you make them. This keeps every gadget up to date but also means you can grab files while in an internet cafe without your own machine.”
