The Internet, Broadband, 4G and Jobs

As I earlier communicated this week, I listened to an economist indicate that while the Internet is creating jobs it is doing so at a pace that is far lower than those created by the manufacturing industry. While intuitively this...

In an industry where acronyms and obscure terms are prevalent and created every day, Unified Communications is just the latest in a long line of telecommunication solutions that VARs, agents and integrators need to adopt. Consequently, the requirement to recreate...

Where No Man Has Gone Before

NASA announced this week that it was shutting down its last mainframe which generated a few memories. The first mainframe computer that I ever worked with was an IBM 360. Granted, I was not allowed to touch it, but after...
