- Moonwatcher Technology: Web Services + RSS = Dashboards?
There is no difference. This is why RSS dashboards will win over BI dashboards. - "So, what's the difference between BI dashboards and enterprise applications fitted with RSS adapters funneling data into my desktop aggregator? As far as I can tell, only time and money."

- The anti-marketing of SugarCRM | Tech News on ZDNet
call me naive but aren't these prices high? - "SugarCRM is a free download, and it contains 85 percent of the code in Sugar Professional, which is $239 per user per year and uses the Mozilla Public License. The annual fee includes premium forums; updates and patches; day-time technical support by e-mail or phone; and commercially licensed Sugar extensions and templates. SugarCRM is also available as a hosted application for $39.95 (why not $40, to be transparent?) per user per month, with a minimum of three months and five users. Salesforce.com Professional starts at $65 per user per month, and the company also offers Enterprise and Team editions."

On the warez (pirated software) Web sites, you can find every book Ive ever released in electronic form."

- x180 / james duncan davidson: Airport Express Wish
I want SlipStream and an Airport Express. All things in good time! - "That would be cool, no? Imagine, you flip open your PowerBook to play a game and, instead of using the wimpy built-in speakers, you can directly tap into the big ass stereo sitting in your living room."
