So earlier today, we wrote about the new partnership between Lenovo and Pokki and being the nosy bastard that I am, I wanted to find out a little more. I reached out to the good folks at Pokki and spoke with Chester Ng (one of the cofounders of SweetLabs) and their Senior Marketing Manager, Alan Masarsky. Some of you...

Lenovo has officially become the second major PC OEM (after Acer) to join forces with Sweetlabs and their Pokki Suite. SweetLabs announced the deal today and indicated that Lenovo will be preloading a Start Button/Start Menu from SweetLabs on new PCs it ships worldwide, starting with its Windows 8 consumer laptops and...

When it comes to using Windows 8 in an enterprise environment, there are varied opinions on whether the Start UI helps or holds you back. Honestly, it will probably boil down to preference, and simply getting used to the change. While I personally think that it isn’t a bad idea to simply adjust to the changes in...

While I’ve personally become accustomed to the new Start UI as a replacement for the traditional Start Menu, it seems that a large number of Windows 8 users are unwilling to let go and move on.

Company after company continues to offer...

Chester Ng – CMO SweetLabs Yesterday, I introduced you to Pokki, the new platform developed by Sweetlabs. I believe I described it as “an interesting desktop based version of the Apple Store, Windows 8 App Store and Download.com all merged into one”. After doing the demo and looking thoroughly at the concept, I naturally...

pokki logo So this is something a little (lot) different. Even though this blog is focused like a laser on Windows 8, I came across a company and a product that you might just want to check out. The company name is Sweetlabs and they were founded in 2008 to “empower developers to reach new users and monetize great...

It’s no secret to anyone who has read this blog for any time at all that I am a fan of Sweetlabs. The company has shown an almost uncanny ability to read future trends and adapt appropriately. You may know the company for their product Pokki. I first wrote about Sweetlabs in 2012 when they were introducing Pokki as a...
