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

  • The gang play the “Which Twitter creeper has a real job” game.
  • Greg and Marc Farley experiment with Google hangouts.
  • Public Google hangouts are a nightmare.
  • Out of 44 people who jumped in (and most getting bounced out), we found one networking geek in the Czech Republic so we decided to start over and we had a good convo about the Mini iPad vs Nexus 7

7 inch Tablet Wars: Apple vs Google vs Amazon

Enterprise BYOD will be all about 7-inch, Wi-Fi tablets in a year

  • Wi-Fi only will be a security problem
  • 7 inch is a better form factor
  • Android security is getting better
  • Is there really a BYOD problem?
  • Tablets in business meetings
  • Real world BYOD problems
  • Cisco routers managed by the cloud... and a really bad corporate lawyer writing horrible terms of service...
