Virgin Media email customers enter third day of inbox infuriation


Re: Critical emails on vermin? You've only yourself to blame

Well said.

Salesforce: There's no more Slack left to cut


Higher interest rates i.e. money no longer cheap + inflation = buying up businesses and their customer bases instead of investing to integrate apps into a platform to penetrate down below the "CRM" layer, was always going to run out of steam eventually.

Salesforce's Patterson blazes a trail for humble-braggers everywhere


Re: No 'I' in team/s

Let me guess. you're a salesman.

Salesfarce to Failsforce: Salesforce database blunder outage enters day three as fix falters



Well, it is the Empire of enterprise IT... Oracle's Ellison plans 'Star Wars cyber defense' for his second-generation cloud


The lack of any mention of Salesfarce as a competitor must annoy the hell out of Bennyhoff and his "first Gen Cloud" sycophants!! Much lolz.

Drone crashes after operator failed to spot extra building site crane


I used to have a 3DR until I realised how antiquated their tech is compared to DJI offerings. 3DR's demise is an interesting lesson in self aggrandisement (a disgruntled DJI exec helped set 3DR up), a poor business model and inferior tech.

Oracle 'systematically denies' its sales reps their commissions, forces them to work to pay off 'debts', court told

On the other hand, who can't get behind bad things happening to salesmen

Because without them you wouldn't have a job you imbecile

What's 'amazing', cloudy and splattered in red ink? It's quarterly Salesforce results time


Let me guess.....beat and raise. House of cards.

Oracle doing due diligence on Accenture. Yep, you read that right


Re: this doesn't make a huge amount of sense

high tide mark indeed when you consider the other news that broke today....https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2017/03/introducing-amazon-connect/


Very interesting on many levels. Accenture have a substantial and long standing relationship with salesforce, so any such merger would have an immediate and negative impact on salesforce. For the price of what Benioff was trying to flog himself to Microsoft in 2015 (https://goo.gl/tNCEaI), this could be a shrewd way for Oracle to torpedo their biggest competitor for a similar price with A> thrown in to boot.

Apple's car is driving nowhere


watch your back Tesla...

Surely Apple will eventually tire (boom boom) of the hassle involved with producing hardware and slurp up Tesla and shoehorn in CarOS?

Microsoft buys LinkedIn for the price of 36 Instagrams


Goodbye Salesfarce

With their biggest and fastest growing competitor now in control of the world's largest and most up to date professional CRM platform, Salesfarce will face even more of a uphill struggle to justify the relevance and cost of their proprietary data silo. I recall SFDC attempted on numerous occasions to secure a close partnership with LinkedIn, only to be rebuffed every time.

Salesforce boss Benioff foretells grim, unrelenting hyper-capitalist future


A classic Register article. Keep up the good work.

Apple under CEO Angela Ahrendts? Hmm ... (beard stroke)



If we believe 'technology futureologists' aka cooler yet geekier versions of Russell Grant, the future of consumer technology will increasingly focus on wearble devices increasingly integrated into the fabric (sorry) of our lives.

Surely Ahrents, with her Burberry pedigree, more than most would be a good bet on how this trend might translate into Apple fanboi nirvana?
