I've gotten several comments saying that, at the end of the day, REST is just RPC. That's wrong, for at least 3 very reasons: 1) Each unique state in your protocol state machine has its own URI. That's different from an RPC endpoint that maintains a black...

The future of this stock 

rests in huge part on the patent of Emily. The company will continue to move forward in spite of Emily, but the stock price should surge when the Emily patent is finally granted. 

If my thinking is correct, at that point we will hear of several billion dollar lawsuits being filed by VCSY and Niro. These companies know they have been infringing on the patent-pending Emily software for their own purposes and most will attempt to settle quickly. 

Mr. Wade's silence is likely mandated by our attorneys.

Like the guy said, nothingk personal. It's just what we do. It's just what krbjr and others alike do - the brethren and sisterns of consistent disappointment, one might say. Knit together in a bond of constant familiar desertation.

Some of it have been at it for seven years+ and perhaps spend more time with 'the crew' than most people spend with their golf clubs and kids combined. We's all tight, jackup.

Somebody tries to smother our baby, we start trying to find out if we can squeeze a little straw in there up the nostril so little junior (aka 'Leetel Keeler' Maxi-lead gas in the tank - make the ultraviolets sheen like a mama bird's pee) can at least make it to the next feeding.

We Promise we'll be nice but it's instinct to protect what is precious and what's more precious than money, right?

Golly gee, Missus Jenkins, city folk ain't never seen a cow et by ants. In the South, fire ants, make the little pissants running through your sugar bowl like it's Pensacola look like pissants. A fire ant is able to cause with one bite a sting and an itch that will forever remind you 'kill the fire ants where ever you find them'. Only one problem is they evolve to immune so the more you try to eliminate them from your property the larger and meaner they are out in the neighbor's property. It takes a village to kill fire ants.  Can't we all just get along? Throw the fire ants a cow every other week and everybody's happy.

How do you get rid of them? Never let them get established in the first place. I know that doesn't help the cow under consumption but it might help others in the heard.

Am I too cute or what? 

Try to fight them now that they are established and they do nothing but bite you every weekend and tunnel while you are at work. 

Like my landscape? It's a lawn with a rose bush and the sky with fire ants falling out of the blue. Things like that happen around twisters. You get cars, trailers, frogs, cows (That's the brown thing falling out of the sky) and just about everything else you can think of fall from the sky after a TexasTittyTwister. Oh... and fireants. A mode of transportation for fire ants just like dust and hail and marbles.

Topic: Apple Fritters

I put this under Apple Fritters because I have a sneaky suspicion they're going to have to do the same thing about Leopard if they don't take a big hint and act now while prices are low. You too could have the ability to write 'arbitrary' code which means your code can run with anything. You too could write web-based functional micro-kerneled systems. Know what? You don't need an operating system on your computer with something like this. Just one seed agent to pull in and push out whatever machine capability you need. no operating system on the machine before you say go and no operating system on the machine after you say no.

 

So this is a generic impalement of the concept of traditional software development and the rise of the internet as application and operating systems. Because these are internet based and are 'experienced' on the user machine

The SiteFlash patent allows for the virtualization of any code module, model, service or framework. SiteFlash is an extensible operating framework for application creation opeartion and management for full auditable and governanced life-cycle.

Arbitrary = Code is made transparent to the user by virtualizing abstraction. Thus the user is able to run ANYBODIES software no matter how esoteric or big or small.

Sorry Microsoft people, and I know how much you think I'm biased, but this guy makes sense. And he makes alot of sense when you read his other article here: what he suggested three years

No, Apple People, it's your turn to do some soul searching and come to Jesus about a few things too.

Microsoft admits Vista failure

Actions speak louder than PR

By Charlie Demerjian in Beijing: Saturday 21 April 2007, 12:20

WITH TWO OVERLAPPING events, Microsoft admitted what we have been saying all along, Vista, aka Windows Me Two (Me II), is a joke that no one wants.

It did two unprecedented things this week that frankly stunned us.

Dell announced that it would be offering XP again on home PCs. The second that Vista came out, Microsoft makes it very hard for you to sell anything other than Me II. It can't do this on the business side because it would be laughed out the door, but for the walking sheep class, well, you take what you are shovelled.

This is classic abusive monopoly behavior, Microsoft wrote the modern book on it. It pulled all the major OEMs in by twisting their arms with the usual methods, and they again all fell into line. Never before has anyone backpedalled on this, to do so would earn you the wrath of Microsoft.

But Dell just did. This means that Me II sales are at least as bad as we think, the software and driver situation is just as miserable, and Dell had no choice but to buck the trend. If anyone thinks this is an act of atonement for foisting such a steaming pile on us, think again, it doesn't care about the consumer.

What happened is the OEMs revolted in the background and forced Microsoft's hand. This is a big neon sign above Me II saying 'FAILURE'. Blink blink blink. OK, Me II won't fail, Microsoft has OEMs whipped and threatened into a corner, it will sell, but you can almost hear the defectors marching toward Linux. This is a watershed.

The other equally monumental Me II failure? Gates in China launching a $3 version of bundled Me II. Why is this not altruism? Well, it goes back to piracy and how it helped enforce the MS monopoly. If you can easily pirate Windows, Linux has no price advantage, they both cost zero.

With Me II, Microsoft made it very hard to pirate. It is do-able, you can use the BIOS hack and probably a host of others, but the point is, it raised the bar enough so lots of people have to buy it. Want to bet that in a country with $100 average monthly salary, people aren't going to shell out $299 for Me II Broken Edition?

What did MS do? It dropped the price about 100x or so. I can't say this is unprecedented, when it made Office 2003 hard to pirate it had to backpedal with the student edition for about $150. This time though, things are much more desperate.

If you fit Microsoft's somewhat convoluted definition of poor, it still wants to lock you in, you might get rich enough to afford the full-priced stuff someday. It is at a dangerous crossroads, if its software bumps up the price of a computer by 100 per cent, people might look to alternatives.

That means no Me II DRM infection lock in, no mass migration to the newer Office obfuscated and patented file formats, and worse yet, people might utter the W word. Yes, you guessed it, 'why'. People might ask why it is sticking with the MS lock in, and at that point, it is in deep trouble.

So, it did the unthinkable, and dropped the price. I won't bother to hunt down all the exec quotes saying how people can't afford clean water would be overjoyed to sell kidneys to upgrade to the new version of Office, but they are out there. This was a sacred cow, and it is now hamburger backed up against the wall.

These two actions by Microsoft are proof of what I suggested three years ago. Microsoft has lost its ability to twist arms, and now it is going to die. It can't compete on level ground, so is left with backpedalling and discounts of almost 100 times.

What we are seeing is an unprecedented shift of power. It is also an unprecedented admission of failure. And the funniest part about the moves made? They are the wrong things to do. Microsoft is in deep trouble. µ

I'm going to start sprinkling a few stories around here to give one a view as to the curiousness of Apple recent Leopard delay. Just as curious as the Microsoft Vista/Longhorn and Viridian delays and just as curious as Ross Systems being bought out of the blue by CHINA.

All very curious and, to my mind, all having a central theme. XML is too hard to do.

Here's just one opinion about Apple's poop on a plate..


Apple’s Mac OS X Leopard delay is a leadership failure

Tuesday, April 17, 2007 - 09:23 AM EDT

"On April 12th, Apple announced that Mac OS X 10.5, Leopard, will be delayed from the original 'Spring 2007' ship date. Now it won't ship until October," John Martellaro writes for The Mac Observer.

"Considering that Apple had until June 21st (1806 UT) to ship Leopard, this is only a four month delay. In terms of OS releases, in general, this is no big deal some have said," Martellaro writes.

"Well, yes it is," Martellaro writes. "It's actually a big deal because Apple had it within its power to avoid this setback."

Martellaro writes, "Apple could have avoided this Leopard delay with good old fashioned management leadership. They could have allowed themselves to grow and mature a little. They could have empowered their key VPs to figure out what it would take to ship Mac OS X/Leopard on time, with excellence and exercise some authority. Unfortunately, many of Apple's key VPs aren't Lieutenant Generals. They're Lieutenant Colonels."

"Alas, Apple's psychology and operating style is trapped in the $6B Valley of Death syndrome and not moving into a 21st century consumer electronics company that's poised to move from $25B to, perhaps, $40B in just a few years," Martellaro writes. "To get there in good shape, Apple will have to spend some money on something besides a half billion dollar new campus, forget the ghosts of the Michael Spindler and Gil Amelio eras, empower their VPs, and let their VPs become responsible for their own products, staff and OPEX."

Rumor Smashed: Apple's WWDC Keynote Not 3 Hours

3-hour-wwdc2.jpgWe'd just reported that the Keynote, likely without iPhone and Leopard, would be a mindblowing, lord of the rings-esque 3 hours long. Actually, that's wrong.

The official word from Apple is that it's actually 1.5 hours long. That is, 10:00am to 11:30am PST on Monday, June 11th. The WWDC schedule that showed a 3 hour keynote? That was we call a typographical error which has already been updated.

So, what are they going to talk about for 1.5 hours?

Poll: What Do You Make of the Mac OS X 10.5 Delay?

fruitlogo1.jpg

On Thursday, Apple announced that its upcoming Mac OS X 10.5 operating system would be delayed until October as a result of the need to finish final work on the company's long-awaited iPhone. The news came as a disappointment to some who felt that the company should have been able to wrap up both projects at the same time. Let us know what you think and if this significantly changes anything for you:

How has the Mac OS X 10.5 delay affected you?

 They should be able to complete the iPhone and Mac OS X 10.5 in time for June.
 I'll get by with Mac OS X 10.4 for the time being.
 I'm glad they're taking their time with development.
 I'll look for third party solutions to provide what I was looking for with Mac OS X 10.5.
 I'm looking into a Windows-based PC as a result of this.
 I'm having 20,000 pizzas sent to Steve Jobs' house.
