- The T-Mobile-Microsoft Sidekick data disaster: Poor IT management going mainstream - Ooops. But is this really cloud? Or just a regular data center not being backed up? James Governor's 15 Ways to Tell Its Not Cloud Computing may help answer that.
- Apple versus Microsoft: The top 20 stolen ideas of the OS wars - It is interesting to remember where some of the features that we take for granted came from.
- Sun, Oracle chiefs vow: Sun technologies will live on - It was great to see Scott on stage and Larry went after IBM.
