Google Wave on Ulitzer
Google has certainly been busy building a lot of different software tools
that can be used for collaboration, including Google Docs, Google Voice,
Google Sites (formerly Jotspot) and Google Calendar.
But there are a number of specialized tools that are more useful than these
Google services for particular circumstances. These can be big productivity
boosts for enterprises.

Dell News On Ulitzer
This week I begin a new series of video screencasts for Dell’s IT Expert
Voice Web site. The site has all sorts of useful information for corporate IT

versus the multi-touch swipe technology that is part of Apple's pr... (more)
Remember when your office phone was a solidly built multi-line key system
with push buttons for the different extensions? And you had a secretary who
