In honor of Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs’ memory, the Cisco Channels team wanted to share our Top 21 iPhone apps. But with more than 500,000 apps available in the iTunes App Store, how does one even begin to narrow the list down to 21?
Well, we decided to focus on free iPhone apps that we use all the time. The perfect pairing – free and useful! And for the new iPhone converts who traded in their old devices for the new iPhone 4S, this list would be a great starting point for building your own library of useful iPhone apps.

Everyone looks forward to Friday: it’s the end of the workweek afterall! We get to enjoy dinners out with friends and family, head to the pub, go out dancing, or just have a quiet night at home with a bottle of wine and a movie.
While I definitely look forward to many of those things, too, another thing that caps off the week nicely is to catch up on all of the interesting technology news that took place. This week, Cisco had two networking announcements: one on the Cisco WAAS portfolio and the other regarding everyone’s favorite switch (Catalyst).
Let’s take a closer look at some of this week’s news highlights:
The saying goes that you should think globally, but act locally. Well guess what—now you can, thanks to Cisco partner Westcon Group.
Comstor, the distributor business unit of Westcon Group, now offers support for the Global Partner Network for the Cisco TelePresence Distributor-as-Agent track. Cisco’s Global Partner Network (GPN) enables customers with global requirements to better utilize resources of Cisco partners. And now, you can efficiently conduct project management, delivery and logistics globally for your customers’ TelePresence requirements.
Here’s how it works: The program can allow you to act as host in your customer’s headquarters to deliver a globally coordinated solution. According to Bill Hurley, CTO of the Westcon Group, this can help you not only think, act, and grow your business from a global perspective, but also do a single local transaction with local support.
“TelePresence is a global technology—it’s not about just putting it in a local campus. Most companies look to it for global communications, and this program enables our partners to be confident that they can speak with their end-users intelligently and confidently about TelePresence,” he said.
