Software company founder John McAfee adjusts a microphone in preparation for an interview in Guatemala City, Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012. McAfee, 67, has been identified as a “person of interest” in the killing of his neighbor in Belize, 52-year-old Gregory Faull. Police are urging McAffe to come in for questioning. The anti-virus company founder fled Belize and is seeking political asylum in Guatemala, according to his lawyer Telesforo Guerra. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)
Who didn’t see this coming? McAfee sells life story. http://t.co/M7zPlI2h If you’ve been following John McAfee’s story at all, I’m sure you’re not surprised to hear that he has sold the movie rights to his recent exploits. Impact Future Media is planning on naming the film “Running in the Background: The True story of John McAfee.” I can just hear the promo now….”The anti-virus hunter has become the hunted.” Whether you believe his story or not, it’s still a great tale. I just checked out his blog and it appears as if he has been released from the jail holding him in Guatemala for crossing the border illegally and he’s now on a plane bound for Miami. Best of luck John!
According to Tim Cook, Apple is also on a flight to the United States and eWeek has 10 reasons why that’s a smart move. Apple Decides to Make Macs in the U.S.: 10 Reasons It’s a Smart Move http://t.co/dK6C816X That’s fantastic news. While almost every manufacturer builds overseas, it’s always nice to see some of that manufacturing move back to The States. I dig it the most that HP has a manufacturing facility in Plainfield, Indiana. Two thumbs up to Apple!!
As we get closer to December 21, 2012, I can’t help but think about the Mayans, Nostradamus and Gartner. Apps, Marketing and the Cloud: Gartner Predictions for 2013 http://t.co/6kwwXqaD . Of the three, I believe Gartner makes the more conservative predictions that you can bank on. Of course now that I’ve said that there will be Zombies at my door before the end of the month. Mayan apocalypse comes early: Gmail suffers brief outage http://t.co/sPeo1i1k. What did I tell you?!?
If you do survive the apocalypse, there’s a very good chance that microservers are going to be a part of our future. There’s an equally good chance that those microservers will be powered by Intel. Intel Pushes Microserver Vision as It Readies Release of Centerton http://t.co/f6MdWjXD. It’s all about speed, power, size and efficiency.
RND Group, an Indianapolis based provider of medical software for the life sciences industry, announced Monday morning that it plans to add 25 jobs by 2016 as part of a $1.3 million expansion. That totally rocks!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I love it when local guys do well. Medical software firm plans to expand, add 25 jobs http://t.co/WPaQa69W
I hope your Wednesday went well. We’ll talk tomorrow if I’m not stuck in a Guatemalan prison.
