If I had the Power to do More [Video]

While at SXSW, I was interviewed by Dell, and asked what would I do if I had the power to do more. A pretty interesting question, because I had to reply with a clarification – Is that a Lex Luthor power to take over the world, or a Superman power to save the world. I said that I would like to help people build their craft, while I also did the same. By helping people, I feel I have contributed in building the blogging and podcasting community. Being a citizen journalist, I can show people what goes on at places like SXSW, and other big events. Thanks to Dell for the video! See the other video questions asked at SXSW!

Dell To Enter Smartphone Market

Dell To Enter Smartphone Market

Reuters reports that Dell is working on an Android phone for the U. S. market to be distributed by AT&T. (They credit the Wall Street Journal with breaking the story.) Smartphones . . . have exploded onto the corporate and consumer market as users increasingly access information and entertainment on the go. Worldwide factory shipments of smart phones are expected to rise to 235.6 million units in 2010, up 27.9 percent from 184.2 million in 2009, according to iSuppli. That is a far cry from a 12.3 percent decline projected for cellphones overall in 2009. But analysts warn that the world’s No. 2 PC maker would face a tough challenge in a market already crowded with competition. On Wednesday, South Korea’s Samsung said it would also begin selling an Android phone through Sprint Nextel’s network. As much as I like Dells–until my son moved out, there were five...
