1. Flash Drives or Disk Drives: Who Owns the Future?

  • While flash seems like the way of the future, it’s difficult to say for how long. It goes without saying that technologies improve and there will always be bigger and better.

2. Top 5 Mobile APM Myths: Myths 1 & 2

  • There is a lot of confusion in the market today. So in this blog post, I’d like to dispel some key myths around mobile apps. And how, with the right mAPM tool, you can nail your mobile app experience — both interactivity-wise and performance-wise — and thereby win the market.
