Guest blog by Stephen Miller, Lenovo Ambassador and SMB champion In many ways, there have never been better opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses to grow. Globalization means potential customers don’t have to live near a company’s facilities or even within the same country. Fewer market barriers and better communication options mean it is easier than ever to reach a worldwide audience, collaborate with far-flung co-workers and generally expand the boundaries of the business. The rise of social media has helped bring customers closer, while opening new marketing opportunities. Social platforms allow businesses to be more targeted and effective in their communications, and enable SMBs to interact directly and immediately with customers. At the same time, smart connected devices like tablets and smartphones make social media interactions easier than ever. Expensive office space is no longer an absolute requirement. The growth of smart devices and cloud computing enables employees to run business applications and access work-related files anytime, anywhere. Today it is possible for remote workers to be productive virtually anywhere in the world. The big question is, “How do SMBs take best advantage of the highly-connected mobile workforce and the ability to interact with customers in an instant?” One answer is to leverage 3 emerging technologies that are fast becoming must-haves for today’s successful SMBs....

We recently held a Lenovo Hangout session a couple of weeks back on the New ThinkPad X1 Carbon with our product experts, Dilip Bhatia (VP ThinkPad Prod. Marketing), Alysia Baker (Prod. Marketing Manager), Chris Karaffa (Lenovo Advocate) and Raju PP (Tech Blogger). Relive the Experience below However, due to some technical faults, the Hangout prematurely ended and we know that there were a few questions which could not be answered in time. Well fret not, here are the answers! ANSWER: We’ve done a lot of user research about how to improve our keyboard and two trends stood out: Users wanted a simpler keyboard but still wanted all the functionality they were used to. This is why we developed the Adaptive Keyboard. By combining 40 shortcuts in a dynamically changing row, it brings the most pertinent shortcuts for the application to the forefront without taking away functionality. ANSWER: Yes, there will be an update to allow you to assign your own apps to the 4 rows. ANSWER: Absolutely. X1 Carbon is all about pushing boundaries and the newest generation is no exception. Everyone interacts with their devices differently and the we understand this. By having different interactive features, we allow users to personalize their experience in whatever way they work and play best. ANSWER: In addition to the new user interactive features like the Adaptive Keyboard, voice and gesture control, we also have improved basic...

Guest blog by Chris Karaffa, Lenovo Advocate As a long-time business user of the X1 Carbon, I was very excited to see the new X1 unveiled at CES 2014.  A little background: I was issued an X1C accidentally when everyone else was being issued mainly T-series and the random L-series or X-series other than the X1.  Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I gladly accepted.  Just based on form-factor alone, it looked like the perfect notebook for me.  I spend a decent amount of my time traveling and presenting in front of moderately-sized groups. However, there were some immediate growing pains that I had to overcome.  In order to shrink a very capable notebook to this size, one must sacrifice certain things: An optical drive – No big deal.  It’s a dying medium, anyway, right? VGA/DVI/HDMI outputs – I am constantly using multiple displays or a projector, but I’ll just make do with the miniDP port, I suppose. Ethernet – Wireless is where it’s at, and well, it did come with a USB-to-Ethernet dongle in case I absolutely must use it (albeit at USB 2.0 speeds). Smart Card Reader – Well that kind of sucks, but I always use a USB card reader, I guess. Furthermore, there are only two USB ports on the older X1—one 2.0 and one 3.0.  So with one always occupied with a smart card reader (partially pictured on the left, above), and one occupied with a wireless mouse...
