The biggie is Multiple Account Support. You can now switch between personal, work, or any other Google account.
Also with Single Sign In you can sign in once to Google Drive and you’ll automatically be signed in to apps like YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome, and G+.
The updated iOS 7 support now also lets you print your files with Google Cloud Print or AirPrint.
The redesign called “Road Trip by Hertz” includes several concierge-style services that reduces the amount of time needed to wait in lines. The changes include an iPad station equipped with four tablets for researching local area information. Travelers can also recharge their mobile devices and make use of printing and FedEx services on-site.
The iPad bar has pre-loaded travel apps, games for kids, and iPad-enhanced apps to book a Hertz reservation. Travelers can also check email, print boarding passes or pass time until their flight. More than 800 locations have gotten the makeover with the iPad kiosks to date. Several of the locations also offer iPads for [...]
PC and tablet makers need the so-called 'release to manufacturing' or RTM build next month to ensure they'll have systems with Windows 8.1 pre-installed in time for the upcoming holiday season.
The Windows 8.1 update includes a remedial Start button on the desktop, smarter search, better windowing, a redesigned Windows app store, and 3D printing support.
Made available in Google Play Wednesday, the app lets you print from any compatible Android phone or tablet to any Google Cloud Print connected printer.
You can also share photos and documents from the built-in Gallery and other Android apps to Cloud Print and check on the status of your print jobs.
Google's Cloud Print website will help you figure out if your printer is compatible with Google's cloud printing. Most major printer brands are listed there, though not Lexmark.
That’s the big picture point Pixuru makes in promoting its new photo-to-canvas app for the iPhone (which can also be used on an iPad).
Using an iPhone 5, the company produced a full color, 25-foot wide canvas print of the Chicago Merchandise Mart that it says, after researching the matter, is the largest print ever produced from a smartphone.
Pixuru is a free app. The namesake company makes its money via its printing service that lets you send photos from your iPhone (or iPad) to Pixuru’s printing facility. You can then choose online the type (canvas, metal, wood, or framed prints) and size of print you want. Pixuru says prints are delivered within a [...]
The ‘Business in a Box’ hardware bundle starts from $299, a price which gives small-and-medium-sized businesses (SMBs) two Square Readers, Heckler Designs’ WindFall iPad stand and APG’s Vasario 1616 cash drawer which can be operated by an iPad.
Those SMBs with enough cash in their pocket to plump for the $599 version will receive all the above as well as a Star Micronics printer for printing receipts from the iPad. In both packages, customers will need to supply their own iPad because Apple’s tablet is not included.
The idea of the package is that SMBs fit all these adds-on to their iPads, and then use the Square Register iPad app with one [...]

Indeed, the survey revealed that 33% of business owners currently run business applications on a smartphone or tablet, and discovered that 14% of these business managers think they will eventually replace their PC with a smartphone or tablet.
“We believe the long term trend towards cloud computing and small business using tablets and smartphones has started,” said Barry Sloane, CEO of The Small Business Authority, which is part of Newtek Business [...]
For big investments in ERP systems taking years to implement, the business case is usually based on single digit percentage improvements in overall efficiency.
With tablet solutions, however, we've found that the productivity increase can often be over 100%.
As an example consider a field worker working for a big fast-moving consumer goods brand who visits retail stores to check on product placements, product freshness, interview the manager, demonstrate new products and take new orders.
Traditionally this process involved following a paper checklist, filling in paper forms, taking photos with a camera, recording the interview with a tape recorder, showing a [...]
The group’s so-called ‘shopping basket’ is reviewed each year, with items added or removed depending on their relevance to everyday consumer spending.
Technology spending has been added more in recent years, with smartphone and app purchases included in 2011, and with bundled communication packages (internet, phone and TV subscriptions) now part of the shopping list from this year.
The ‘shopping basket’ now includes tablet computers, TV license, take-away chicken and chips, and baby wipes. The list is used by the ONS to test out inflation rates. Each month, the group tracks the prices on 180,000 items of 700 products, and then calculates [...]
