Web Services Wave - Major hurdles must be overcome, but the time is right for close evaluation. "Until now, and for the near future at least, Web services are more hype than substance...(however) expect legions of Web services advocates to crop up soon, and stay away from those who aren't pledging unswerving dedication to the World Wide Web Consortium's XML and SOAP standards work.

Web services are the great leveler of heterogeneous networks, a universal communicator technology for IT."

The buzz about web services is beginning to remind me of the mid-90s when browsers were gaining momentum in the press and on people's PCs. The good news is that, as with the former trend, web services are poised to achieve the same ubiquity and market appeal, translating into more opportunities for developers, service providers, and users alike.

-- "Amazon Calls New iMac Its Fastest-Selling Computer According to Amazon's sales data, systems manufactured by Apple (including the Titanium PowerBook G4 and iBook) currently claim 10 of the top 25 bestseller spots at the online giant's computer store."

Apple may finally be on the road to increasing their marketshare in the PC industry. With so many hit products selling in such volumes, their numbers are bound to improve. Go Steve!
Bless me Father, for I have not blogged

With the exception of yesterday's post about Mac OS X and Windows 7, it's been over a year since I last blogged here, and nearly two years since I've posted anything technical. I went underground during that time, focusing on writing intranet blogs and articles and neglecting the "real world." As of today, I no longer have an intranet to blog to (I was laid off), so it's time once again to turn my attention to what's going on out here on the big, bad Internet.

Watch this space in coming days for my thoughts on Apple products, personal productivity in the enterprise, mobile and remote workforce technology, and virtualization (along with meanderings into a wide variety of other topics).
