    Am I the only one who thinks there's something ironic in the pronouncement by Steve Jobs at Apple's WWDC that the PC and Mac are being demoted from "digital hub" to "device"? Speaking for myself, I can say that my computer was ne... 

  • Is Google's Chromebook the right idea in the wrong place?

    Google's Chromebook seems to me to be a good idea but not necessarily one that is being executed in the right way. As others have remarked, there is an issue over what you do with a machine that runs on a browser-based OS if you're not able to connec...

  • Hells bells, wheels come off Dell Streak stunt

    I laughed out loud at the story about the Dell staffers arrested after a PR stunt went badly wrong. Hats off to the marketing geniuses who decided it would be really smart for someone to run through densely staffed areas at the company's HQ dressed i... 

  • HP's video nasty

    Yet another entry in the long list of "feeble cringeworthy attempts by technology companies to look cool" category at the Grammy awards last night (13 February). Someone at HP had the idea of taking Lou Reed's Walk On The Wild Side - which ...

    Today's announcement of a new business range of Drobo products from Data Robotics, based on its BeyondRAID technology that allows users to mix and match drives, is another instance of a company moving up from the consumer and very small business into... 

  • Money talks in LAR fee changes

    Microsoft's changes to the fee structure of its Enterprise Agreements (EA) appear pretty tough. On the surface, large account resellers (LARs) are losing around two-thirds of their existing fees for sales to clients on its major accounts list. As a c...
