GullFOSS - Sun Microsystems joins porting effort for for Mac

We can only hope that there'll be some excellent cross-pollination between Sun's team and the folks at NeoOffice. NeoOffice has done a good job of delivering added value to OOo, and it would be a shame to see that good work fall by the wayside as the OOo core evolves to include its own Mac-native UX.

I'm sure mine is not the only voice encouraging the teams to find ways to cooperate and bring the best of both to OpenOffice's Mac user community.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

My First Google Wave

I got my invitation to Google Wave on Friday and finally had a few minutes to check it out last night and today.  Started my first wave on "cloud computing."  Seems fitting to discuss the topic in a new, cloud-based collaboration platform.  Of course, I continue to have dialogs on cloud computing in other media, but couldn't resist trying out Google Wave with such a fitting topic.

Right now I've only got about 5 colleagues in Google Wave along with me, but that'll grow over the next few days.  I'll post more observations as my community grows and I have more reasons to work in the environment.

Meanwhile, I'm in it and learning my way around.  Stay tuned!
Sad Day For Microsoft: 5,000 Laid Off, Earnings And Revenues Down
It would seem, seeing this headline, that even the tech sector is unable to avoid the consequences of this economic downturn.  When even bellwether Microsoft must slash jobs, it must be impossible to create a sustainable business model that has the elasticity to weather a severe economic slowdown.
Then again, there's this:
Apple made $10 billion, sold 88% more iPhones than last year
and this:
Apple Reports First Quarter Results - Best Quarterly Revenue and Earnings in Apple History
I believe Apple has established a management and operations pattern that may prove a model for sustainable business operations that, while not necessarily immune to economic trends and conditions, could prove more stable and thus less prone to the "hire wildly then lay off" pattern so many companies and industries seem subject to.
Is Apple an enigma, or a new business model?  Share your comments.
