  • So proud of all the amazing sailing and beautiful boat,
  • Watching on EK from Nice to Dubai. Go boys go! Thanks Emirates!!!! And for backup feed ,
  • So called global mag propagating a US-centric view of the world. There are great CMOs outside the US ,
  • Everytime I step in I instantly regret it. Appalling service. Dirty stores. Awful coffee. Dreaming of St Ali and Dukes right now,
  • To be clear - when ordering anything large or Venti at Starbucks you are ordering a MILKSHAKE with some coffee ,
  • Further spotlighting the Wallabies Woes ,
  • Like wo has tapes anyway? Or even a tape recorder? Or a tape player? Or a fax? ,
  • RH: respect the opportunity you have @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: Stay humble. Work hard. What happened yesterday has no relevance to today or next week. Don't wait for chance. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH: companies matter in terms of getting stories out to people. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH points to Trad media co's entering OTT ... @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: nothing bad happens that doesn't have some good associated with it @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: Eventually will be a NFL team in London @Cannes_Lions,

  • Kraft is concerned middle class not doing as well as they should. So right @Cannes_Lions,

So, What’s A Tablet Anyway?

About 20 or so years ago (i’m slightly in denial of the timeframe) I got to work on launching an amazing piece of new technology – the GridPad. Arguably the first Tablet ever. Today, you’d think the category exclusively referred to the iPad. That’s simply narrowing the definition.

I have three devices kicking around my home that all fit the bill. First, a PC tablet running Win 7. It’s great for Office work. I have an iPad which I mainly use for viewing movies and TV shows, reading the off book, and pouring through magazines on planes. Then I have a Dell Streak which I carry everywhere for email, video, games and all kinds of other stuff. My iPhone also follows in tow but I’m liking the screen less and less after a month or so on the Streak. About all that keeps me on it is getting my ass kicked on WordswithFriends and trying to defeat the pigs in Angry Birds.

The idea of living widgets vs. apps, and the speed and versatility of Android, would make Android an ideal Tablet platform. Here is hoping we get there soon. For me though, buying an Android tablet will hinge on the quality of the content. Better games, richer media and amazing content.
