Mobile technology is changing by the minute; sometimes you just can’t catch it all. Here’s what you might have missed this week:
- Microsoft released the Surface Pro 3 at a press event in New York. The 12-inch tablet runs Windows 8.1 and includes accessories, such as a snap-on keyboard, that help it function like a laptop.
- GigaOM has learned Google is working with Ruckus wireless to build a cloud-hosted Wi-Fi network to provide services to small and medium-sized businesses.
- Here’s what the writers over at Macworld think Apple has in store with iOS 8 – and the changes they’d like to see. We’ll have to wait until WWDC, at which Apple has promised to reveal a sneak peek.
- Mobile technology in space might soon be more than just a Moonage Daydream: Samsung and Boeing are collaborating on a project that would incorporate Samsung mobile technology into Boeing spacecraft.
- Ron Miller explains why every company is a big data company.
- AirWatch Chairman Alan Dabbiere spoke on Federal News Radio this week about the DOD’s STIG approval process for new technology.
- And TechRepublic dives into the cultural implications of technologies that have inspired many of us to capture and share everything we — and the people around us — are doing.
