TechRepublic Australia Wrapper

Editor's note
Welcome back to the Wrapper for another week. This week saw RIM unveil another collection of details on BlackBerry 10, with the first real look at the final interface and user experience. Points to RIM for making a unique interface that will keep the lawyers far away, but is it enough to save the company? At least the company's expectations are in check, as they aim to firstly become a viable number three mobile ecosystem. The second episode of The Upside podcast appeared in the past seven days, and in this episode we sat down with James Bannan to hear his thoughts on Windows 8, the "Metro" look, and Windows Server 2012. It also contains snippets of Chris Jackson's security talk at TechEd Australia 2012. To those who are lucky enough to have a long weekend coming up, enjoy your Monday off. --Chris
