Best of DEMOfall 08
By Jim Rapoza
At the recent DEMOfall 08 show in San Diego, a wide variety of products and companies debuted. These products and companies spanned the whole spectrum of technology, from consumer web sites to enterprise focused SaaS solutions to cool gadgets to core pieces of manufacturing technology.
Will some of the participants turn out to be the next big companies of tomorrow? You never know. But many at least are pushing the envelope in their ideas for the future of technology. To name a few, Intelius launched isearch, Plastic Logic introduced a new plastic reader, and Maverick Mobile Solutions created software to protect the data on your cell phone, including encryption, the ability to wipe data, and also a tracking device to find your mobile phone if it gets stolen.
