Use Google Apps Without Pesky IT


If you work for a company that has an IT department this news may put a little smile on your face. Personally, I would love to try out apps like Opera’s Mini web browser, or the new Firefox mobile web browser once it is released but my IT department views these applications as a threat, so they block me from installing them on my Blackberry. While I understand their need to protect their own information as well as their customers, could someone please tell me how downloading a game from RIMS own website is a security threat? Well at least Google feels my pain as they are set to release Google Apps Team Edition that will allow users to download and install Google’s popular productivity suite including the word processor, spreadsheet, Talk instant messaging, and calendar. Noticeably absent from the list is Gmail which still requires IT support in order to re-route the companies email. You can check out the full article here on Computer World.
