IBM buys Systemcorp

Busy week for M & A -- CA buys Netegrity, IBM buys SystemCorp, and EMC buys Dantz. Wow, lots of founders got rich!!

Interesting notes about the IBM and EMC buys...companies looking to consolidate their software purchases and middleware infrastructure can focus even more attention on IBM and EMC, though I believe EMC will continue to struggle a bit in defining the role of its software portfolio in its overall business strategy (of course, everyone knows that software sells hardware, but with growth in the enterprise storage market slowing to almost flat, EMC's looking for new revenue and growth opportunities).

-- "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).
