This has been a very active and busy week in the world of emerging technology, mobility gadgets, devices, social media and communications.
It will take time for me to digest, mulch down and string together my selection of the best and most relevant news briefs from the previous week. I sincerely hope to have these latest Bits and Bytes edited and posted by Monday April 2, 2012. It is Saturday and it is raining out there so I can’t use the excuse or diversion of escaping to the park or beach or slinking to the flea market. So I will take this time sit here and try to get a little something done.
Check back here for an update soon. Also, it would help me if you my dear readers would help me out by pointing to a few stories of particular interest to you to share with others.
