In Pictures: 10 Cloud predictions for 2013

Here are 10 predictions for what we’ll see happening in Cloud computing in 2013.

Gamification will drive sales and customer service

Gartner predicts that by 2014, 70% of all Fortune 2000 companies will have at least one cloud-based application that employs game theory to influence employee or customer behavior. Gamification is the concept of applying game-design thinking to non-game applications to make them more fun, engaging and addicting. Applications in the business world include boosting sales, encouraging collaboration and information sharing among employees and partners, and increasing customer service satisfaction. Market leaders include Badgeville, BunchBall, Crowdfactory, Gamify.it, Hoopla, Kudos, ObjectiveLogistics and Rypple (a salesforce.com company).

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
