Who's Hot? Who's Not?

Filed under
Misc

First, you tell me the YouTube’s Lonelygirl15 was a play-actor – the antics of some amateur film makers. Then, I hear gossip that has Dell thinking about selling computers through a series of channel dealers instead of its direct method. Next, we have Microsoft talking about some kind of “open source” model and finally, Hewlett-Packard has board room spies. The next ting you will tell me is something really goofy; like Pluto isn’t a planet anymore.

Anyway, it’s time for another survey of Who’s Hot and Who’s Not in the tech world.

First, the Nots, beginning with the aforementioned Dell Inc.

Also qualifying – though just barely - for the “not hot” list is Intel.

Finally, the Hot list now includes both RealNetworks Inc. and SanDisk Corp. a couple of respected industry players who appear to be teaming up to release a portable music player/service to take on iTunes and Microsoft’s recently announced music entry: Zune.

Full Story.

re: who's hot? who's not?

Who Cares.

Some newspaper tech column hack and his "I can barely format a floppy" tech opinions.

Putting "Realnetworks" into the "hot" column seals his fate (and my opinion).

The Red Hat Way

  • Red Hat wants to make cold-shouldered OpenStack red hot
    At OpenStack Summit in Boston last May, some speculated that the event might be the last gasp for OpenStack — an open-source platform for cloud computing and infrastructure-as-service. Granted, OpenStack was one of the less hyped open-source projects of the past year. But renewed community and end-user interest is breathing fresh life into the platform, according to Rob Young (pictured), senior manager of virtualization product and strategy at Red Hat Inc. Telcos and others are adopting OpenStack “because of the simplification of what was once complex, but also in the cost savings that can be realized by managing your own cloud within a hybrid cloud environment,” Young said.
  • Improved multimedia support with Pipewire in Fedora 27
    Pipewire — a new project of underlying Linux infrastructure to handle multimedia better — has just been officially launched. The project’s main goal is to improve the handling of both audio and video. Additionally, Pipewire introduces a security model to allow easy interaction with multimedia devices from containerized and sandboxed applications, i.e. Flatpak apps.
