"prone to stress and bending when placed in tight spaces such as pants pockets"

It was inevitable: Lenovo stumps up $2.3bn for IBM System x server biz

Time to shine :)

Assuming enough of the right people and teams get to move over, I expect the former IBM x86 world to really have a chance to shine now that it will be part of company that actually wants it.....oh and it does not have to worry about upsetting other parts of IBM....*cough* power

Smartphone-shot movie guns for cinema release

Little Me

grow up....

like so many of these hip and modern things.. who cares about the camera, the lens, the special type of artificial snow..... show me the film! So they taped a camera (which happens to be in a phone) to a lens.... next...

unless you are a camera operator at which it becomes I suspect a case of. very nice toy for a student project. next...

6 frames?

and that's a movie? not sure I can finish my popcorn in that time...

Developer fury as Google makes Android apps vanish

Little Me

apple win?

and so as the android world thrashes around...... Apple's closed and controlled world appeals more and more to normal people (who just want it to work to and don't worry about being restrained)

time warp?

Can someone tell me if it is still 2011? I feel like I am back in 2002 when such issues were new news.

I remember the wonderful expressions on datacentre managers when they realised just how many KW a rack could potentially draw. priceless.

I have a plan for this evening now

Easier to secure the cloud than your data center - IBMer

Little Me

all this makes me think of.....

a regular outsourcing affair.... SLAs, tight security, monitoring provider.... sounds like best way to get a real grown up solution that you can bet you business on it to forget the caring, sharing, woolly cloud part and just straight outsource it.....

Sorry, we couldn't find a policing area that matched your search

Is that a good thing or a bad thing... and who is driving that police car that hangs around if not a police man/woman ???

time to put another bolt on the door.

Aussies demand Poms cough up first 'Australia' map

Little Me

Elgin Marbles?

I think the comparison with the Elgin marbles is a bit off target.. Greek historic pieces being nabbed could be said to be Greek and demanded back.....but a map drawn by a visitor was hardly ever the ownership of any Aus inhabitant...

sorry Aus but asking nicely might be more appropriate...

Nanny state?

Little Me

now where are my snowman building gloves....

Beeb gets grief for Humpty Dumpty rewrite

Little Me

Go pick on a bad program!

my 4 year old think Mr Tumble is great and so do I ! so what if he gets tickled by a couple of ladies in bearskins who looks like they are enjoying it a little too much...

shall we turn the cannon on say... Popshop?
