Is Salesforce Getting Serious About the Back Office?


Even as Salesforce aggressively seeks to consolidate its position as the leader of cloud-based front-office applications via a series of acquisitions, it is possible that 2017 could be the year the company uses some of the same purchases to make a strategic move. Salesforce soon may become a major player in the back-office financial management and ERP market as well. Speculation that Salesforce might expand its offerings to address the back-office needs of its corporate customers has been plentiful for a long time.

Fitbit May Pick Up Pebble


Fitbit, the leader in the wearables category, is close to an agreement to buy struggling smartwatch maker Pebble for up to $40 million, in a move to gain the firm’s intellectual property and software. The negotiations follow several months of financial turmoil at Pebble, which reportedly slashed its workforce by 25 percent in March and has rebuffed several prior offers to be acquired. It’s rumored that Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky turned down Citizen’s $740 million acquisition offer, as well as a $70 million bid from Intel.

First-look review: Microsoft Surface Pro 4

Microsoft has become the leader in hybrid tablet design. That’s significant because Microsoft only got into the PC-making business in 2012. Its Surface Pro tablet has evolved from the heavy 10.6-inch brick introduced back in October 2012 to the highly-refined 12.3-inch Surface Pro 4 we have today. I’ve used all of the of the earlier Surface Pro versions extensively and I can say that Surface Pro 4 handily beats the already-impressive Surface Pro 3.

Apple Watch Nips at Fitbit's Heels


Despite disparaging sales reports, the Apple Watch is closing in on market leader Fitbit, according to an IDC report released Thursday. During the second quarter, Apple shipped 3.6 million watches — 800,000 units behind Fitbit’s shipments for the period. Shipments for all wearables during the quarter increased 223 percent from the same period a year ago, IDC reported, to 18.1 million units from 5.6 million. Although the wearable market is still young, it appears to be splitting into smart wearables and basic wearables.

What Corning's Gorilla Glass 4 Says About Survival


Corning Gorilla Glass, which resists scratches and breakage, is the leader in providing the protective layer on smartphone screens. For a while, it appeared as though Sapphire might pose a threat, but no more. In the meantime, Corning has introduced Gorilla Glass 4, which is the best to date. Every Apple iPhone and every Samsung Galaxy phone uses Corning Gorilla Glass. That means Corning dominates roughly 80 percent of the U.S. market and even more worldwide. Not too shabby.
