IBM Mail Next explained - so far

IBM Mail Next was finally explained a bit better today. Here is what you need to know about IBM Mail Next function and architecture. Subject to change.

IBM Mail Next was formerly called Project Sequoia. Special Note: you apparently have to buy IBM SmartCloud Engage to get half of it to work. SocialBizUg also closed the side chat to submitting questions only. They could have provided both options of rolling chat and also submitting quesitons.

(I can say that much of this was already available in Domino through a business partner that made FewClix. See my posts on FewClix here.)
There will be a Design Advisory Program (I guess deprecating the Design Partner Program).
Now for the specs of IBM Mail Next:

Pelican ProGear Vault Extreme Protection Case iPad Mini review


We love reviewing cases for the iPad Mini and were excited to get the Pelican ProGear Vault Extreme Protection Case due to it's known durability. It provides a tough outer shell, all the required ports can be opened or buttons accessed, the back camera has a great protective cover and it screws into the frame holding the iPad Mini secure for drops and bumps. So why did we not give it a 5 star?

IBM Survey on Mobile Device Usage

IBM has asked for help with a mobile device usage survey.
The following survey asks about your experiences using a mobile device. If you own more than one mobile device, please choose the device you use most frequently to answer the questions. The results from this survey will be used in aggregate form to drive future mobile app design decisions

IBM Mobile device survey
I would like to say I do not agree that "In the car" should be a choice or even considered due to safety reasons.  That could have said "on mass transit (We promote safe driving)".

Question 8 should also have a half and half variable answer for is your device usage personal or business.  I think mine is split.
Question 14 makes no sense to me at all..
Question 16 asks more about hardware and ease of use of your device.  Is IBM considering making a device?
