Synchronoss Technologies Makes Strategic Moves to Boost Innovation

Apr 12, 2012

Reprints It can be tough for wireless carriers and users alike to sort out the increasingly complex mash-up of mobile devices and data.

Network operators and individual users of Miyowa’s platform can set parameters that control which updates from social networks get sent to the devices. “That way I’m not getting updates on every single comment on a picture on a Facebook page,” Nair says.
