Steve Jobs has launched the thinnest laptop in the world, but is it important? Judging by the amount of web noise its generated then yes it is. Currently it’s the most searched for term in technorati. And if you work in the enterprise space then you will probably have at least a passing interest or you’ll be wondering how long it is before you’ll be able to get your hands on one, or before employees start requesting them!
Well they only retail at £1199.
If you want to see the drama – then watch the first embedded video below. If you want to find out more of the technical specs of this new laptop then watch the product demo from a guy who works at Apple – so don’t expect him to point out any flaws, but it’s a comprehensive tour of the laptop.
We have just launched our latest blog – the Networks Generation for those interested in networks and communications, principally from the UK. If stories about WiMax (I couldn’t resist linking to this post as I love the headline!), or broadband, etc, etc interest you, then take a look and bookmark it or subscribe to the RSS feed.

Wow… what a statement. Businesses need to start embracing virtual world technology as it’s going to as popular as email in five years time, according to a report by Forrester.
I followed with interest the recent squabble between Facebook and Robert Scoble over who owned his data on Facebook and have read some really good posts on this issue, such as the pro privacy and consumer louis gray and a different take on the debate from Freedom to Tinker.
Continuing the slightly reflective theme of the previous post, ComputerWeekly.com launched its video channel last year.
These consist of a mixture of weekly news highlights packages and one off video interviews.
So far the most popular of our videos in 2007:

Well, I’d been hoping for a quiet Christmas away from the PC, but it was not to be… News broke today, Sunday, of yet more public sector data breaches. And once again it’s the Department of Health which is facing a diagnosis of poor security process.
Only a couple of days ago John-Paul Kamath reported on the Information Commissioner’s Office ruling that the DoH had breached the data protection act, by failing to properly protect personal details entered into the Medical Training Application Service website. Now it’s the patients’ data that the DoH has confessed hasn’t been getting quite the treatment it deserves.
As it’s my last day in the office today, I wanted to wish all ComputerWeekly.com’s readers a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
I hope you all have a great break and enjoy a happy and relaxing time away from the office with your family and friends.
Officially, tomorrow is the last day in the office for our team until the New Year, but we will be periodically updating the site over the festive break – yes some of us will be moofing!
Best Christmas wishes
