A good piece on how an increasing numbers of companies are offering staff the ability to use their own PC’s or tablet computers to do their work. I don’t have to bring my own iPad to work but choose to as it makes my day easier and find it helps me keep a better track of my work. Would I like a contribution from my place of work towards the expense? ‘Yes’ do I expect it ‘No’. It will be interesting over the next couple of years to see how this develops and what major corporations do to deal with personal devices connecting to their networks.
One of the shorts to come out of Fantastic Fest 2011 with a lot of buzz was BenDavid Grabinski’s debut short film Cost of Living. It stars Bret Harrison (of TV series Reaper fame) and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns duh!). If that doesn’t get you going, it’s got laughs, atmosphere and action, and, for my money, is well worth 9 minutes and 33 seconds of your time.
This looks amazing, love the idea of a slower paced story driven experience in a computer game especially one that looks this good.
