Here is a moderately interesting press release that came through my inbox this morning:
(Englewood, NJ) - November 20, 2007 - WolfKing, a world leader in the
innovation and creation of gaming input devices, today announced it is
customizing its award-winning WARRIOR gaming pad and TROOPER gaming mouse to
appeal to female PC gamers. The specially designed gaming devices, which
will be sold exclusively through Dell, provide the same high level of
As I was casually walking out on the Oracle OpenWorld show floor today, I stumbled upon the Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) booth. Having interviewed CSC employees and being an avid fan of cycling, I already knew what the company is known for... but do you?
What exactly is CSC? "The biggest company you've never heard of," said one CSC employee during the show.
Even as the sponsor of one of the best cycling teams in the world -- something CSC is very

Every Lunch 2.0 event I attend ultimately has turned out to be an amazing resource that allows me to learn about fun and interesting startup companies that most of us probably haven't heard about. Today's Lunch 2.0 event, located in the beautiful San Francisco North Beach area, was hosted by FamilyOven.com, a social network site based around cooking.
A lot of the recipes seem to be easy enough to prepare, even for all of the people who are more likely to burn down their kitchen rather

Am I the only one who is actually glad to see corporate exec types writing blogs these days? Instead of just shoveling news to readers via press releases, blogs allow developers and programmers to add personal opinion to announcements.
One of the first examples I can recall off the top of my head has to be Sun Microsystems. Jonathan Schwartz, Sun Microsystems CEO and President, writes in his Sun blog all of the time.
Many other Sun employees also have blogs they
Have you ever wished you knew of a service that lets you upload and listen to songs online? I know I did - and that is why I am glad I recently discovered the power of Anywhere.fm!
For those who don't know, Anywhere.fm is a service that essentially allows users to upload their music collection, then have it available online wherever they go. Registration consists of simply entering a username and password you want, then you're ready to begin uploading files.

I occasionally bump into a few people who tend to believe that attending industry computer shows is a fun and enjoyable experience. I try to convince them it's fun if you're going to a show like E3 as an attendee, but exhibitors and media at these events traditionally run around working the entire event.
But this blog isn't meant to be about me - it's supposed to be about the people who help run the show.
The complexity of operating a large computer tech show

I've seen a lot of slick technology during VMworld 2007, but feel the need to highlight something I think is really cool.
The main point of VMworld is to demonstrate the progress that virtualization has made the past year or so. What does that mean for this blog? It means that I may have actually found something that is almost interesting for a casual reader.
NEC was on hand to demonstrate its Virtual PC Center (VPCC) technology. What is the VPCC? VPCC refers to
My thoughts regarding the recent AMD Barcelona launch. Feel free to flame me if you wish, just as long as you do it nicely.
As Intel seems to get all of the good press regarding both desktop and server CPUs these days, AMD threw an official Barcelona shindig last night in San Francisco, Calif. The event, which took place at two buildings in the San Francisco Presidio District, focused on Barcelona, AMD's first quad-core server processor.
Although I was unable to
Decided to take a break from the chaos of VMworld, so here are a couple quick thoughts regarding BRIC nations.
The BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) nations IMO hold the key to success when it comes to the global economy.
During an Emerging Markets Summit at the Sun Microsystems headquarters in Menlo Park, CA., panelists discussed why many companies are willing to put so much money and resources into the economy. Although the event was hosted by Sun Microsystems,
