    You're right. I certainly wouldn't want to be in charge of the "next great app" because of the fluidity. I do know that those of us in IT and information security must stay current on these issues if we're going to keep these apps (and the information they process and store) in check. Ahh, the life of an IT professional....Wait, squirrel!

    We don't currently have a 'killer platform', 'killer OS' nor 'killer device'. Until there's some settling down, it might not be possible to create anything but a 'niche killer app'. Tom

    Would both you describe social media as the big 'killer application' right now?
