It's another episode of The Register's enterprise tech cast, and this week your hosts – Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela – are debating whether it's still worth engaging with social media – Greg thinks not – and whether widespread adoption of the 7-inch slab is really going to take off in the BYOD enterprise game.

The Big Twitter Purge

  • Greg and Marc Farley experiment with Google hangouts.
  • Public Google hangouts are a nightmare.

  • 7 inch is a better form factor
  • Android security is getting better
  • Is there really a BYOD problem?
  • Tablets in business meetings
