Re: A few extra data points
"@Anonymous - the $/GB of SAS increases relative to the $/GB of SATA, i.e. it's not going to fall at the same rate, e.g. SATA might drop around 20% vs SAS at about 5-10%. If the system was in $/GB you'd see a bunch of logarithmic curves with TLC flash dropping really fast and crossing over the curve for SAS but still being an order of magnitude more expensive than SATA. It might seem counterintuitive initially but this is actually one of the clearest ways of showing the relative costs."
Thanks for responding to my question, I'd really like to see the non-normalized version of this chart as otherwise it reminds me of a book I own called 'How to Lie with Statistics' as where the choice of axis and normalization is made to reinforce the premise rather than make it clearer.
Re: Autonomy reported profits of £105.7m for fiscal year 2010, The real profit was just £19.6m
Plus $105M profit on $175M turnover, how come no-one called BS on that?

Well their site sucked for me

Oh yes Mr analyst nobody, let me share my main customer's most closely guarded secrets with you....
I'm pretty sure my iPhone 3G worked fine in the UK
So I took my US AT&T iPhone 3G to the UK and it connected fine to the Orange and Vodafone 3G networks without any problems so I'm not sure why the new Google phone wouldn't be able to do the same as I've not heard of UK 3G phones not being able to connect to the AT&T 3G network.......
Seems odd that Google/HTC are going to produce a Verizon version of the phone but aren't willing to have their 3G one support AT&T unless it's just an excuse to limit wireless provider choice, way to shake up the industry Google.
