Great +Forbes  piece on Cummins, Inc. and Columbus, Indiana.

What a transformation! Can't recognize the town anymore. Lived there for four years in the 90s. Kudos to the Cummins management for keeping at it through thick and thin.

What an apt name for the new behemoth engine. Hedgehog. Borrowing from Jim Collins book "Good to Great". It is not just the engine, the whole company is one Hedgehog!

The Cloud: Amazon is the King. Google is catching up. Microsoft is a player. The new Big Three? Apple or FB are not in the game. Yet.

Quartz: Amazon and Google are in an epic battle to dominate the cloud—and Amazon may already have won. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwlJ2nrho

Neither Amazon nor Google are suitable to many products or companies. There will be many cases where a more service-focused vendor such as +Rackspace will make sense.  There are smaller companies also, such as Expedient which are very attractive, particularly when HIPAA regulations or security considerations come in to play.

Local merchants don't do a great job at mapping. Google needs to help them to do better...

The mid looks good, but the beer looks good in all three.
