Ed Brill was first to break this news, but it has now made it to the Australian News in Australian IT this morning.

Good to see Nokia supporting the Lotus Traveller product for providing Notes on Nokia S60 3rd Edition devices.

Mobile PIM Applications are mainstream these days… I look forward to more announcements like these.

We had Ed Brill visit us in ‘sunny’ Brisbane yesterday, and he presented to a local User Group meeting.

Always great to have Ed drop in, he has great insights into the Lotus machine.

Of interest were the forecasted launches of Notes Domino 8.5 next month (yes December), and the release of Atlantic  (SAP integration in Notes) in March next year. Both of which will have significant interest in the local Lotus market.

Some of the features presented by Ed at the PLUG meeting will be well received. I especially like the new way that attachments can be managed to save on email sizes, and the multiple calendar overlays.

Some of the screenshots for Atlantic look interesting as well.

Not long now… and a special thanks to Ed for dropping by. (Sorry about the weather and near disaster zone that Brisbane was yesterday, but numbers were good none the less.)

Google Chrome, Ed Visiting Australia & Australian IBM Strikes September 2, 2008

The Browser wars are hotting up with Microsoft releasing their IE8 Beta this week and now Google letting slip that a Beta of their new browser dubbed “Chrome” will hit the market today.

If you haven’t seen the early media release in cartoon format for Chrome. Have a look here.

IE8 is getting hammered on memory use, and I must admit I have seen it. The security model is very green as well, as sites that need authentication (like internet banking) keep requesting re-authentication with each page refresh.

I noticed Ed Brill’s announcement about his impending visit to Australia in November. It will be good to see Ed again!

And IBM is in the local media with an impending workers Strike possibly affecting some large Enterprise Customers like Qantas, Westpac, and Medicare.
