10 January, 2010 (20:45) | mac, prediction | 1 comment

Ok so this one is out there. Apple is on top of its game. Macland has to know that Chrome will destroy the teeny userbase OSx has within the next 2 years. Most people use the web. Thats it. Web apps. My mom, my cousin, most of my employees. They all use the web. At […]

Yup, people ask me if they need it, I’m saying get it now. Time to provide the antivirus vendors with a little cash to develop your AV just before you need it more. Which is later this week to next year.

Priceless- http://www.pcworld.com/article/163836/eight_reasons_your_next_computer_should_be_a_pc.html There are many many other reasons the cycle won’t be broken. Macs are cool, just not going to dominate. Home users tend to buy what they have at work. Mac refuses to support old OS and software choices. Too many businesses get stuck in a rut where they run an old Windows OS […]

I would like to offer M$ a bargain. Call me before you launch something and ask what I think you need to prepare… Offering Windows 7 beta isos at 2.2GB a piece? I’d say you better have a ton of akamai servers out there if you are still refusing to do the logical thing and […]

Iphones can not be trusted for corporate data security

17 July, 2008 (08:10) | mac, security | No comments

I just posted this on spiceworks: Iphones cannot do data encryption. In my opinion this is an auditors dream. SOX, HIPAA, DOD, PCI compliant companies can’t use an Iphone. So every health care, publicly traded company, payment card industry and a LOT of government. Companies who value their intellectual property can’t use an Iphone. So […]

Mac OSX Snow Leopard

9 June, 2008 (20:22) | mac | No comments
