I like that Steve Ballmer loves Azure, he should, that's obvious. I love his Midas touch.

I believe the reason they went to Linux is because it can be a general purpose real time low latency kernel. Which is unique. It the fastest trading floor in the world and others are adopting.
It could be the OS, in conjunction with interrupt driven hardware, that's at fault but the combination is a difficult one. Real time in Linux is a only few years mature. The LSE trading system is much newer than that.
Software is never finished.
I hope this Linux platform goes from strength to strength.
N+1, M for one better, M for MeeGo. Mokia because they could take the piss out of WPblah on Nokia.
1500 Symbian devs took a half day on Friday. They organised then and they all have a reason to chat the day they get sacked.
1500 MeeGo devs would be an army. Nokia was well run and those devs would come with discipline and good practice built in.
This is a series of articles. It starts with laying out our fears it ends with??? This could be a horror story extolling the virtues of a one size fits all cloud solution. Loss of jobs, 33% higher costs (Gartner, McKinnsey) and few solutions. And where is the OGC/ISO/Usual suspects' standard for cloud security?
A website (or app off a website) where people present crap ideas. The community vote on them. Anyone willing can buy a share that pays for the effort to patent the idea. Those share holders get part of the licence fees.
Even if ideas don't get to the patent stage the content might be proof of prior art. Like Open Source software development the community would move faster than Apple etc could.
anything to do with 3d user interfaces
anything to do with gestures using the front facing camera on a phone preventing fingerprints on the glass
e.g. using 5 fingers/digits pulling or pushing to zoom
The coalition have been accused today of trying to solve the problem too quickly and also of not going after the banks more harshly. And for ideological reasons (the lib dems lost the argument.)
There is a sum of cash missing. Get it from the banks who can be you're friend or from the poor and the middle classes who don't have a voice?
A reduction of 25% in public services is going reduce the ability of the poor and the middle class to spend. Not to mention the damage it is going to do to front line services. That damage could have been mitigated if the reduction were 20% and the cash regained over a longer period.
Pain for three years then some good news and then an election... The Tories are working within a window of opportunity rather then looking at the long term potential to solve the problem.
Conspiracy: did this article come up short for a reason?
