Comment Web apps vs. desktop apps (Score 1) 218

If you develop a native app people will use everywhere, you probably need these version:

1. Windows
2. Linux
3. iOS
4. Android

And then you need to convince people to download and install your software, because it is not malicious. OTOH, with a web app they just need a browser.

Native apps may be a better solution when you are doing a custom application for a specific business, and all their employees have Windows desktops or laptops.

Comment Re:Is IBM a real cloud hosting competitor? (Score 2) 29

IBM recently bought SoftLayer, and is now offering a cloud with a bunch of additional enterprise services at https://console.ng.bluemix.net... .

Required disclaimer: While I am an IBM employee, my opinions are my own and do not represent the IBM corporation. In fact, being a publicly traded corporation, I don't think IBM can have opinions other than "it is good to fulfill one's fiduciary duties".
