Nokia buys Eizel Technologies

Nokia has agreed to acquire Eizel Technologies Inc., a privately held software company specialized in server-based products designed to transform e-mail messages, attachments, intranet applications and Web content into formats easily accessible by virtually any mobile device on any network, the Finnish mobile phone manufacturer said Tuesday in a statement.

Eizel technology requires no alternation of source content and no additional client software, according to Nokia. The product provides "on-the-fly" reformatting of source content to fit the form of the mobile device while preserving interactive elements.

It also supports SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) authentication to ensure secure access.

Nokia plans to integrate Eizel technology into its own range of secure enterprise products, in addition to delivering it as a software application for organizations that have standardized Unix or Linux platforms from major hardware vendors, it said.

Eizel Technologies in Billerica, Massachusetts, was founded in 2002 by scientists from the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The company currently employs 26 people.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
