Juniper Systems' Archer 2 Sports "Best-in-Industry" Battery line
 
Hello Mobile Enthusiast... Welcome to another busy mobile technology news roundup. Have you ever lost or feared that you've lost your smartphone? I know I have and it really is a lousy feeling! The cold sweats, the frantic pocket patdown dance, the panic thoughts about what personal data could have fallen into the wrong hands, and the rush to your carrier to beg for an upgrade or replacement device. Eventually this will happen to you but you can take some precautions that could save you. I've shared a few simple tips for both iOS and Android device users below that you can implement and hopefully minimize the loss when such a tragedy strikes. On to device news... are you in need of a rugged solution? With the Archer 2 ship date fast approaching, Junpier Systems' Katelyn Heiner shares some of the key features you'll find in this newest rugged handheld from Juniper. Perhaps one of the most noticeable features of the Archer 2 is its extraordinarily bright IllumiView display - great stuff here from the Juniper blog. Finally, some interesting news out of the US Forest service as they are now offering New Digital Maps for Mobile Devices. The digital maps are part of USDA's work toward reaching President Obama's initiative to create a paperless government that also provides the American public with better, more accessible information. The PDF Maps Mobile App, developed by Avenza Systems Inc., is available as a free download from iTunes and the Android Play Store - cool stuff! Have a great week all!

HP All in One Workstation - Portable, Powerful, and Affordable! - So, it may (or may not) surprise you that for the past few weeks I've been the happy user of a very sweet, and big, HP Z1 all in one workstation. This is courtesy of some new friends (and old HP fiends from Fort Collins, Colorado) from HP that I made at the ESRIUC last July who so graciously connected me with a demo unit to put through the paces. For those of you not yet familiar with the "all in one" devices from HP, simply put, the Z1 is a very handy and powerful workstation that comes conveniently bundled in a single piece of hardware.
