Wacom has quietly announced the launch of a new range of Bamboo Tablet devices, introducing the Multi-Touch capability with the popular Bamboo look and feel, this should prove popular.

Available in the following models:

  1. Bamboo (Pen & Touch)
  2. Bamboo Touch
  3. Bamboo Pen
  4. Bamboo Fun
  5. Bamboo Craft

There is a version now suitable for just about any popular use.

I am quite impressed with the Pen & Multi-touch aspects of the complete Bamboo offering.

Have a look at the use of the Multi-touch capability in a video on the Wacom site:

I’ll be watching to see the uptake, as I expect this will be popular.

Google Government Cloud & Public Sector Solutions September 24, 2009

Two announcements in the last week from Google focusing on the Public Sector.

The first being that Google is engaged with the US Federal Government to create a secure Government Cloud. That is, all the Google services, but secured out to the Federal Government alone.

At a recent Longhaus Hypothetical “Government with its Head in the Cloud“, Local (Australian) Government organisations have said that a similar approach would be needed for any significant uptake by Australian Government bodies. I’m sure they will be watching the US Feds closely as they delve into this initiative.

And also last week, but noticed by me today on Twitter, Senator Conroy launched Google for Public Sector.

Both a serious play at the, Federal in particular, Governments in the US and Australia, and I assume other countries as well.
