THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT
Virginia Heffernan
iPads and smartphones may be changing the way we work, but they won't ever eliminate the need for office space says New York Timestechnology columnist  Virginia Heffernan. She spoke to the CoreNet Global conference at Navy Pier Tuesday morning, saying while there's an app for everything from  word processing to Angry Birds, people still want some personal interaction. But we won't each need our own individual desk  or computer someday—iPads are designed to be passed around.
Greg Clark
Globalization expert Greg Clark says the recent revelation that more people now live in cities than any other environment will change where corporations locate their offices. While top-tier cities like New York, Chicago, London, and Paris will still be competitive on a global scale, more third-world cities with higher populations like Mumbai and Singapore will attract workers and development. But that doesn't mean London isn't still striving to keep up: Greg's hometown currently has eight skyscrapers under development.

We found more Londoners on the exhibition floor, where England-based Qube was showing off the new software it's using with CresaPartners. We snapped Qube's John Cuppello and Sharon Miller, Cresa's Paul Giannopulos, and Qube's Simon Dibble with the program they developed. Cresa added a section for transaction management  to Qube's corporate real estate management software, which allows managers or leasing agents to view expiration dates, efficiency, and rental rates of corporate porfolios in just a few clicks.
