New Relic made its first appearance at Mobile World Congress last week, and we had a blast meeting with customers, partners, and all the other mobile-loving attendees. There was a lot of talk about wearables, the Internet of Things, and Mozilla’s new $25 Firefox OS smartphone. But even with all the announcements and big reveals, we’ve still been on the lookout for other interesting tidbits of mobile developer news.
Here’s a roundup of intriguing mobile stories we’re reading this week:
- IBM is challenging developers to create a mobile app that uses its Jeopardy-winning computing system Watson.
- T-Mobile’s latest promo reveals: no one wants a BlackBerry anymore.
- Ultra-secure phones, like the Boeing Black and FreedomPop Privacy Phone (AKA the “Snowden Phone”), are starting to hit the market.
- Fast, effective, double-checked locking in Android and Java apps is possible, explains New Relic engineer Jason Snell.
