If developers do not get behind iCloud, will that give whoever treats developers better — and gives them the broadest platform — the leg up? Who is best positioned to take advantage of these perceived weaknesses?

Big impact news here. The folks will love it, but what's crazy is the scalability... 16TB. Who knew Google would be taking on Amazon S3?

Cold weather and lousy waves. Around 6 minutes into the vid I catch a wave.

How low can you go -- and not be a piece of rubbish? Not loss-leader thinking but just cheap manufacturing for Chinese maker Lenovo? I think Amazon has to go $199 for the 10-incher to be in the game.

Is Google doing it right? Or are DIY cloud data centers reserved only for the Googles of the world?

Puhleeeaaaase. Let your voice be heard. Shout it out loud or let the Internet as we know it go away. No thanks. Save the Internet. Let freedom ring!

You Inc. -- reckon with it...

Here's an interesting pre-Labor Day read: Is the IT industry unusually tough on older workers, or is that a myth? If workers over 50 -- or even 40 -- face more challenges in the tech market, is that because of unfair discrimination against them as a group? Or in some cases is it true that a higher proportion of them don't keep up with important new technologies -- or are earning higher salaries for performing the same jobs as younger workers?
