Seems that Apple is discontinuing their XServe product. I hope this means that Apple is moving towards virtualizion of OSX in the enterprise. VDI with OSX would be sweet!
Waiting for the subway this morning, it occurred to me that the MTA should not bother spending millions of dollars on Countdown Clocks. Instead, why not invest in app development for smart phones. Since there will be wifi in the subways, why not work on getting data to people’s devices. No citywide maintenance costs on installed hardware, power , or labor.
Since there will already be an infrastructure in place to handle the pushing of the data to the clocks, why not push it to an app on my phone. Basically shifting the hardware costs of the colcks to the riders. Added benefit: info is available where ever you are, so you can time your arrival.

Just got my results from the performance based evaluation. Passed!!!! I am now a CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+).
Why not iChat? Will it work with iChat? I really don’t understand the difference.
If I could use C# and compile for the Mac? That a would be sweet. I would sit down and formally learn C#!
Just earned my Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Enterprise Administrator (MCPIT:EA).
Hopefully that, with my Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE), makes me an attractive hire (not that I am looking right now)
Just was reading this article. I couldn’t agree more with this statement. It costs equal or more to but the WSJ on the iPad?
Compare the strategies and thinking. On the one hand we have a set of pricing models that deliver marginal value for premium prices and show very little that differentiate themselves from the web experience, although they expect to charge more. These pricing models are based on a sense of entitlement to set pricing as it was in the days of print. I won’t even call them strategies because they lack any kind of realistic strategic thinking
