More conspiracy… AMD & ATI…

http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=3367&tag=nl.e622 OK… it’s getting wacky, folks.  If AMD starts folding in the high-performance ATI GPU chips into either the CPU (interesting…), or into the chipsets (so last century), they could end up spanking Intel’s currently integrated graphics solutions… which are marginal at best.  Of course, they’ll probably use that nice low-performance shared memory :-(.  2006 is shaping [...]

Fun, Funny and The Nod

Recently I’ve been trying to read the Creating Passionate Users blog more regularly since they seem to always have some valuable insight into topics that range from user behavior to group dynamics to making the mundane fun.  I really liked the posts about Usability through fun which says that it’s OK for something that is not [...]

Aftermath…Revenue…Culture…Kool-Aid…Red-Pills…What’s in a name?

The past two days were filled with marathon meetings.  Not just any meeting but, as I mentioned in this post, it was the first of many DevCo operations meetings where we got all the leading players together from all the regions where we operate (Americas, EMEA, APAC), to sort out everything from our Q3 revenue [...]

It’s a little quiet around here…NOT!

Just a quick little note about the DevCo spin-off.  Borland is still in a "quiet period" before any announcements regarding a buyer can be made.  However, in lieu of that, and since we just finished Q2 the business functioning and moving ahead.  The good thing is that as more time passes, the Developer Tools Group [...]
