There is no doubt that what we knew as the PC segment is now moving aggressively to the Cloud.  It is fascinating how long this has taken, though, as both Oracle and Sun tried to make this move back in the 1990s, and while their vision was strong, their execution fell well short.  The issue […]

I get to watch a lot of trials and have even participated in a few.  The one constant is that both parties generally go in convinced they will win and one, and sometimes even both, discover they are wrong.  And, far too often, the Judge or Jury makes an error, and that tests the appeal […]
