iPad goes to China, Crooks Mine Facebook and ITEXPO Highlights

As the first week of the fall begins, there is a wealth of news to share such as China getting the iPad, Facebook status updates leading to burglaries, another high- level departure at Nokia and GoDaddy.com looking to sell itself for a billion dollars.

The pace of acquisitions hasn't slowed as of late - HP just announced it will acquire ArcSight to bolster its security offering and PAETEC will pick up Cavalier Telephone.

Perhaps the biggest news of all is Wal-Mart's entry into the MVNO space - they will be reselling T-Mobile's service.

If there is a common theme here - it's that technology continues to be full of opportunity as it becomes more common. When Wal-Mart decides to become a phone company and thieves start mining social networks you know we have crossed the chasm.

TMC educates millions of readers each month and twice a year we gather 8-10 thousand of the movers and shakers in tech in a single place - at ITEXPO and a number of related events. Our next event is October 4-6, 2010 in Los Angeles.

I've kept you updated on the event and will continue to do so with this post.
