From Japan Wednesday Apr 17 2013

While we all lust over 1 Gbps connections most of us can't get, Sony-run Japanese ISP So-net Entertainment this week pushed the residential needle to 2 Gbps in Japan. The speedy service is named "Nuro," and will cost 4,980 yen ($51) per month, providing Japanese customers with 2 Gbps downstream and 1 Gbps upstream. The service requires users sign a two-year contract and pay a 52,500 yen ($539) installation fee -- which the company says they're waiving if users order the service online. The Nuro service is being offered primarily to smaller apartment complexes in Chiba, Gunma, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Tokyo, Kanagawa and Saitama.

Yahoo!-backed Hadoop biz Hortonworks flings itself at the stock market


"Speaking as a platform-agnostic SI employee partnered with all 3, Hortonworks and MapR are minnows*. MapR get by cannibalising parts of the storage market (rather than the EDW market) and Hortonworks get by through cross-selling on the back of MS and small-scale deals. Neither of those strategies are sustainable and neither of those companies have a clear value-add differentiator, and it shows in their marketing materials; thinly veiled attacks on competitors, outdated technology comparisons, and dodgy-as-sin benchmarks."

*cough* total crap *cough*

Death of a Salesman: Enough with the marketing already


I can count on one hand the number of good Sales/SE i've encountered in 20 years, most only give a crap about the commission cheque, then it's support's issue to pick up the pieces. The few good ones get overworked and die. Save the sales Droid/SE, they are an endangered breed.....
