4. Different day, same security faux pas: Weak PINS are the new weak password.

5. Storage is all the rage in discussions about virtualization, as Beth Pariseau demonstrates in her recent post about the former VMware exec who founded a virtualization storage company.

6. It seems like a no-brainer, but Mr. Denny addresses a relevant topic that comes up in the forums: Why you shouldn’t cheat on a job interview.

7. It’s summer blockbuster time, and Colin Steele covers the hardest hitters in his post about Hyper-V 3.0 in Windows 8 and their new features.

8. Are you a fan of corporate responsibility? Dave Raffo exposes too much air time for EMC CEO Joe Tucci.

9. Is it time to brush up on mobile development skills?
