“An Exercise In Disappointment.”


The New iMacI have heard that Apple built the new iMac so that you couldn’t perform any upgrades on your own. At least the link below indicates that it is “practically” impossible. In fact, the story states “The electronics website iFixit on Friday downgraded the new 21.5-in. iMac’s repair score to 3 out of a possible 10, calling servicing the computer an exercise in disappointment.” Wow. Now that’s a tough review.

I truly dig IDC’s 2013 Tech Predictions. I think they are spot on. I’m thinking of printing out a few thousand copies of that article just so I can hand it to every person who asks me where I think technology is going.  Of course they could be wrong. Hey, it’s a prediction. 🙂

John McAfee

John McAfee

Aiming to help IT administrators manage security for physical and virtual desktops from a single pane of glass, Symantec joins the ranks of enterprise security providers optimizing their endpoint security offerings for virtual desktop infrastructure. Yep, that’s what’s going on in the VDI link below and that’s what we’re seeing in the marketplace as well.

And while we are on the topic of Anti-virus and endpoint security, I wonder who is going to play John McAfee in the movie.

Hope your Wednesday has treated you well.  We’ll talk again tomorrow.

A potpourri of IT Info To Fill Your Knowledge Bowl


A virtual potpourri of technology today.

Bond, James Bond. Available in 10 US cities at no charge thanks to Dell and MCPc. Hope you can find one near you (follow the link below). Btw, this movie is going to rock!

Citrix seems to be on their game with apropos expansion techniques. Take a walk down memory lane and start with the Dynabook. Is it wrong that I remember the press around this thing? SLED has always been near to my heart and I especially appreciate the article on whether the information age has been a blessing or a curse on higher ed.

Dynabook in Education

Symantec is totally on base regarding the SMB space. I really think what Nvidia is doing in the mobile space will be game changing tech that will all look back on in ten years and go…wow. If you buy a Microsoft Surface you can strap some skate wheels on the bottom of it…..that is awesome…..still don’t know how it works as a tablet….but if all else fails we’ll be doing a Caballerial on the surface.

Well, of course the best person to run the country is a single Mom. Can you imagine anyone else with the same determination and the drive to make things right for the future generation? Of course that sentiment segues perfectly into working from home as long as they are hitting Microsoft Server 2012 environments.

That pretty much covers the last twenty-four hours. Happy reading and surfing and keep those machines running! 🙂
