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.

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).

  • Ten Years of Vim
     

    The philosophy behind Vim takes a while to sink in: While other editors focus on writing as the central part of working with text, Vim thinks it's editing.

     

    You see, most of the time I don't spend writing new text; instead, I edit existing text.
