This week is the annual technology extravaganza in Las Vegas known as the Computer Electronics Show (CES). Every company that makes any type of gadget or piece of technology is there showing off their wares or telling us what the future will bring. Over 100,000 people from all over the world will converge on Sin City to see what the year will bring.
Some are predicting this will be the year of the tablet computer as everyone tries to repeat the great success that Apple has with the iPad. Many of these new devices will run Google Android or Google Chrome, but Microsoft, HP and others plan their own tablets with their own operating systems.
If you add more mobile devices into the mix, the landscape for business is beginning to look like the wild wild west again. Granted that new productivity tools can be great for getting things done, but supporting all these operating systems and hardware can wreak havoc on an organization’s Help Desk and IT staff.
