    Post The story on Reqwireless BB Browser

    Advertisement



    Reqwireless, a Waterloo-based developer of mobile wireless applications, was acquired last summer by a company that very much wanted to remain anonymous... Google. One of Reqwireless' principals, Joanne McKinley, is speaking at the CUTC conference next week as a representative of Google, where she is a software engineer. According to her bio, she still lives in Waterloo.

    Joanne McKinley


    Software Engineer Google


    Joanne is a software engineer at Google, specializing in wireless/mobile client application development. Prior to joining Google, she spent several years working for a small Canadian wireless startup company, which makes her a relative old-timer in this extremely fast-paced and exciting area. She received her M.Math and B.Math (both in Computer Science) from the University of Waterloo in 2002 and 2000 respectively.
    Joanne is thrilled at this opportunity to return to CUTC; she was a planning committee member for the original CUTC way back in 2000 when the conference was much smaller and still held at the University of Waterloo. She makes her home in Waterloo today.


    On an off topic note. Guys look out for a Google PC with Google OS this year!!! I've been waiting for this as im very Anti-Microsoft!:Mad:

    I hope Google hooks up with RIM too. Imagine a BB with Google features!

    Google seems to have a stake in everything these days... even if it doesn't make sense as to why they have a stake.

    I remember when I would use google to search instead of the big guys like yahoo, lycos and excite (remember them).

    People were always like, "goo-who?"

    It's like pay pal. Everyone in the business worls I talked to said no one will trust their money to a site like paypal. Man! Just a few shares would have been nice.

    Google Mobile now available for BB 7100, 7290, 7700 and 8700. Not sure what that means yet for older models (e.g. 7250)
