Will the Enterprise Go for Google's Apps?

I had the opportunity to comment for an article yesterday concerning Google's free apps (thanks BR). As found in this article, quote's from the Hawk found here...
Mobility of Google's applications would also need to be addressed to woo enterprises. "Part of the question of portability is the ability to sync with handheld devices either using Exchange Activesync, BlackBerry services or Good software," says Kevin Benson, Chief Technology Officer, South Carolina Parks, Recreation & Tourism.

"No solution Google is currently providing or has announced would meet the needs of small or midsize businesses, which rely on mobility as a key component. Being tethered to a Web-based app is becoming a prisoner to access and bandwidth."

I also made these comments...The freedom, utility and flexibility of fully developed applications which are portable is much more compelling in the business environment. Ease of use and simplicity are two things software developers can learn from Google but admiring and adopting are worlds apart.

Wired News: TechTV Reborn as 'UndoTV'

I've been a huge fan of Leo LaPorte and company from back in the day. I keep up with some of the gang by listening to TWiT and other host shows but this possible reunion is great news! I never understood why TechTV went the way of the dodo bird apart from pure economics. Here's hoping their heyday returns.

Update: Here are Chris Pirillo's comments on what he's helping to do

MAKE: Blog: Animated light pen art

This is very creative. Stop motion animation is something I've always enjoyed. I know it's a lot of work but creative minds yield a lot of fun for all of us.
