1. Ron Miller delivers all the essentials for a great blog post: Lyrics by The Clash and a declaration of independence. Check out HP’s declaration of (web)OS independence.

2. Perhaps it’s Carl Brooks’s use of the phrase “powdered unicorn horn” or maybe it’s just that he really knows his stuff, but his latest at The Troposphere is worth the read: Microsoft points to Target for private cloud but gets it embarrassingly wrong.

3. Leah Rosin wonders, “What’s in a name?” after the announcement that Ubuntu 11.04 is to have PC and server editions only.

4. Complete with video, Colin Steele announces that VMware vCenter iPad client is on the way.

5. You can try to predict the future, but the truth about the present is: EMC to sell VMware? Keep dreaming!

6. Barbara Darrow announces more exec juggling amongst big tech names: Adrian Jones surfaces at Oracle.

7. It’s not like when you just sit on your luggage to be able to zip it up. Sharon Fisher talks about major underestimation of storage needs: Moon Project Switches Storage.
