PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

They do their programming and testing all on a tablet? Or, are they remoting to another machine to do their work remotely? What platforms are their applications targeting?

They are remoting into their work desktop computers through a program that encrypts their data going back and forth using 256 bit encryption.

Which brings up another thing. If you are taking your code off site there could be a case for being fired since the laptop could be lost or stolen.

That is part of the appeal of the iPads. None of the data is stored on the iPad. They remote in with encryption and all their data is back at work.

What they look at is the IDE on their desktop computer (which is locked so no passerby can see what they are doing) and the program is compiled/recompiled on their desktop computer.

If their iPad is lost or stolen, all they have to do is report it and the iPad is wiped remotely.
