The biggest mobile news of this week was none other than all of the recent enterprise file syncing announcements. That and of course the iPhone 5.
Here's what Colin Steele and I covered in today's show:
- The enterprise file syncing announcements, including a long list from James Furbush, Good acquiring Copiun, Zenprise adding Android support to their file sync product, and Acronis acquiring GroupLogic. I've long believed that modern file syncing should be the first step for any mobile solution.
- Will getting locked into a single stack for sandboxed email, file syncing, and app management be inevitable?
- How do we deal with iCloud in iOS6?
- What if mobile email protocols had options for sandboxing built in? (Think about what would happen to the world of sandboxed email if restricting access to contacts, attachments, etc. was a setting in the mail protocol that was then executed by the client.)
