Like the story about someone ordering a *brand new* piece of construction equipment -- with XP embedded!

I think Microsoft's move to being free for OEM's using under 9in? (or was it 7in?) screen size will be a huge motivator to finally upgrade those systems.

"Hamburger says there was no room for the usual roadblocks impeding IT deployments, including traditional layers of leadership."

Those types of handoffs don't just impede deployments, they change them into something unworkable.

+Mike Rigsby we probably just missed the cut. Now that my budget is over $1.5 thousand, I think next year is a certainty.

It's here! 2014 IT Salary Survey bit.ly/1lFKcN0 How does your paycheck compare, o techies? (I know some of you actually took the survey, for which, #thanks).

It's all relative. My friends who live in the SF Bay Area are always bragging about how much money they make, but then they talk about someday buying a house within an hour's drive to work instead of leasing an apartment for three times my mortgage payment. Then, I feel a little better.

I do have one friend who owns a house down there, but it is in the same nightmare neighborhood I grew up in. Sort of the reason I left the city.

Edit: I shouldn't say my home town is a nightmare, but it was certainly less peaceful than the rural area I live now.

I was reckless enough to write this for the NYT Motherlode blog, knowing full well anything related to college admissions brings the judgey types out of the woodwork. Getting ready to duck and cover...

Honored to have interviewed healthcare CIO John Halamka on his organization's response to the Boston Marathon bombings. People tried to hack Tsarnaev's medical records, who knew? (scroll down for the video...)

Well, this is nice. Unless of course you're one of the 34,000.
