"Me Sad!" as my rough and tumble nephew in Colorado would say. Well I am kind of sad and kind of happy in that AiX, which is an IBM product, is the most secure. I would have thought OpenBSD would have been the top pick. LINK :: OSNews -

We need sales to go up, we need exposure to go up, we need education to go up and we need CIOs to know that the IBM i is the most reliable, dependable and most ROI system on the planet! Yet if you were to look at what IBM is doing to get that word out you would think they were the ones needing the...

IBM Smart Cubes – I would like to demo one and review it



Posted by: David Vasta
i for business, i on Power, IBM News, IBM Smart Cube

The Smart Cube from IBM has been getting lots of talk around the web, just not much from IBM? I want to see some real details and when I go to IBM's web site and search for "Smart Cube", I get nothing. Once again IBM DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO MARKET ANYTHING THEY SELL!

Frank Soltis, the father of the IBM AS/400 in 1988, is rumored to not be working at IBM anymore. Let go or whatever, it's hard news for a person like me to stomach. It's pretty sad really. Frank has always been that rock star engineer who quantified the IBM i. He was the corner stone and in person...

I was riding home from work in my car and on the radio came an IBM i ad, or maybe I should say a System i ad.

Chris Maxcer – Takes IBM to task about POWER SYSTEM and Sales Numbers



Posted by: David Vasta
David on System i, i for business, i on Power, IBM News

I support Chris 100%. He is dead on the money and frankly I am even more tired of IBM's antics than he is. See while Chris is a journalist and a technology reporter, I on the other hand am a self professed blogger, IBM biggot, and i5OS lover who knows that while IBM say it's going to move to POWER...
