Selling to CIOs â Helping Them Get in the Game

,----[ Quote ]
| I had a really good lunch the other day 
| with Bob Suh, ex-CTO of Accenture, at the 
| Four Seasons in Boston discussing his new 
| venture OnCorps. (As an aside, the Four 
| Seasons clearly believes we are out of the 
| recession because with one hour of parking 
| my burger cost $42.)

Open source in 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Google, on the other hand, has done wonders
| with its Android OS which is now right up
| there with the likes of the iPhone and is
| getting better all the time. Android will,
| without a doubt, be in the headlines
| throughout the coming year as Google takes
| other mobile makers on head-to-head.
| But open source will also start appearing
| on devices other than just mobile phones.
| Google's Chrome OS and the Moblin OS are
| just a couple of the viable, Linux-based,
| alternatives for netbooks that will start
| to become important in the coming year.
| A couple of years ago Linux look poised to
| take over the netbook market but Microsoft
| managed to claw back its dominance in this
| market with Windows XP.
| This time around Microsoft may not be as
| lucky. There are indications that Linux now
| has its second wind and, together with a
| strong mobile phone presence, is ready to
| give Microsoft a serious fight in the
| ultra-portable space.
