July 08th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Pioneer entering the Blu-ray disc market. Good. New words added to the dictionary including FANBOYS and MALWARE. Sony keeps updating PS3 software. They had better get the PS4 going fast!

July 07th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5

Linux going nowhere? WiMAX getting some tests finally. Mobile WiMAX too. CRM becoming a huge market. Hooray. tech5

Carl Icahn Has His nerve

June 06th, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
Carl Icahn demands Yahoo sell for $49.5 billion. Intel Anti-Trust woes spread as FTC takes a look. S. Korea already on the case. This was bound to happen eventually. CC free wireless Internet plan doomed to fail? I wonder. Creeping featurism to hit Gmail? Perhaps. My airplane anecdote tells of giant cloud. Comcast looking to deliver 100 Mbps sooner than later. I’m predicting metered service. Lame survey describes the obvious. tech5

Microsoft Says it Will Spend All its Money Anyway

May 23rd, 2008 | Category: John C Dvorak,tech5
It’s snowing in California? Ballmer says MSFT is going to spend $50 billion one way or the other. Yahoo is not a strategy. Carl Icahn worried a deal will never happen. Vista user account control are confusing says MSFT exec. XP SP3 corrupting the registry says Symantec. HP is now taking over the server business from IBM and Dell. RedHat software is greener. So what? Google slaps Microsoft. I’m just joking when I say the oceans are being carbonated by the CO2 in the air. I suspect the iPhone will have GPS built-in or have a bluetooth gizmo nearby. tech5
