Each week, Rackspace futurist Robert Scoble connects with startups and other innovative companies and shares his insights in his free, weekly email newsletter, Life and Tech.

When a team knows how to collaborate well, it’s no accident. The chemistry needed for effective teamwork can be months, or even years, in the making. And that’s for people who work in the same office every day.
CloudMine is an enterprise-grade mobile gateway to ensure the apps you build keep sensitive data behind the firewall when it needs to be, and is available for consumption from mobile devices in a secure and mobile-optimized manner.
Mobility adds an interesting new wrinkle to the management of sensitive data, especially in highly regulated industries like healthcare. Mobility makes data portable and enables that data to travel anywhere at any time, which means ensuring the security of data accessed from mobile devices is paramount to all mobile initiatives.
Mobile is more than a distraction; it’s becoming ubiquitous across industries ranging from smart grids that run on mobile technology to farms run on data from mobile sensors. Regardless of what business you’re in, mobile will touch the way you work and do business.

Your 14-year-old niece is using her Samsung Galaxy to post photos of her “nail art” on Instagram and your family is using an iPad to stay connected via Facebook. Meanwhile, your customers are using their smartphones to search for local services while on the subway, tweeting you for customer support while waiting to get their oil changed and getting app recommendations from Apps for Execs during a lackluster conference call.
