Interesting article

IT spending at midsized companies: How much does size matter? "It's a long-held theory that larger companies have an advantage over smaller ones in IT spending, largely because of their ability to tap economies of scale. They can spend less and extract more value from investments. Recent research supports the notion that size does matter but that companies investing the most in IT are not always the winners. In fact, on average, the most successful small and midsized (SMBs) companies are more frugal than the average large company when it comes to spending as a percentage of revenue. To understand the differences between large and small companies, Alinean turned to its PeerComparison database of 8,000 companies worldwide, which includes detailed IT spending and financial performance data. To judge if size really matters, the IT spending and performance ratios of public U.S. companies were compared between large companies with revenues greater than $2 billion, midsized companie

VMWare Eseentials Pricing

Virtualize from 1 to 30 + servers using the essentials bundles. These bundles differ from enterprise licensing in that they come with everything needed; license, vcenter, esx, etc. One caveat, this licensing type differs from the enterprise licensing in that there are no upgrade paths to any other versions of VMWare. Once you choose one and buy it, if you grow out of it or decide you need more functionality, you will have to buy new licenses.

Apple iTablet

I'm not the biggest Apple PC fan, even though Jaymie keeps telling me that MAC is sooo much better than PC , but I hate to admit it, what a beautiful looking piece of equipment! If all the rumors are true this is the new iTablet and if all the rumors are true I should be selling a ton of these in 2010. For someone who knows more about this, check this link out: http://www.crunchgear.com/2009/07/13/apple-tablet-rumor-gets-screen-size-price-and-release-date/ " Look, we already know a lot about the so-called Apple Tablet. We know the project is real and a lot of man power has been dedicated to the project. A China Times article might have answered a few of our questions though. That is, if the translated article can be trusted. The Chinese trade publication is stating that Apple is working on a large screen touchscreen device; we knew that. What we didn’t know was when this device was coming out, but the Chinese supply chain companies are stating October. That’s also when

Need a Netbook?

Image
Click image to view larger image! Netbooks are all the rage, small, convenient and inexpensive. If all you need to do is surf the net, check email, use Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, or other programs for light feathery work, then a netbook might be for you. I use the HP mini-note at home for all of my surfing and to play games online, like poker, Soduku, Chess, etc...it's perfect for that type of thing. It's also great for kids...unless they are using it for school work. For that, I still believe you need something with a bigger display and more processing power so that you can open multiple windows without pulling your hair out.

Google Operating System

Google with a new operating system to challenge Microsoft...should be interesting http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31791017/ns/tech_and_science-tech_and_gadgets/ SUN VALLEY, Idaho — Google Inc. is hoping to gain greater control over how personal computers work with its plans to develop a free operating system that will attack Microsoft Corp.'s golden goose — its long-dominant Windows franchise. The new operating system will be based on Google's 9-month-old Web browser, Chrome. Google intends to rely on help from the community of open-source programmers to develop the Chrome operating system, which is expected to begin running computers in the second half of 2010.
