  1. How will we integrate all these enterprise cloud apps?

    For the foreseeable future we’ll hear plenty about the next big thing, and it will be some kind of cloud-based software, and it will solve some emerging business problem, and it will let businesses focus on being expert in what they’re building instead of technology. And it will soar. Venture money will be delivered by the truck full, valuations for tiny pre-revenue (aka money-losing) companies will balloon beyond the size of small nations, and we’ll think nothing of it.

  3. Human’s new quantified self app aims at mere mortals

    Human, an iPhone app that just went live in the iTunes app store today, is an elegantly simple addition to the genre known as “quantified self,” the digital movement that has led us to track, measure, compare, improve, and share our every activity, from exercise to caloric intake to sleep. (Let’s hope future apps are spared our excretions.)

  6. HP needs an extreme makeover

    We’re in year two of what HP CEO Meg Whitman promised (threatened?) would be a five-year turnaround for the company whose value had been dramatically eroded by too many changes in leadership and strategy, the twilight of the modern-day personal computer, acquisitions gone wild, and enough drama for a reality TV series.

  7. Beyond Cisco’s downward guidance and layoff carnage lies a glimmer of software

    Cisco set several records of substance for its 2013 Q4 earnings last week. The company’s revenues ($12.4 billion), non-GAAP operating income, net income and earnings per share led the way, along with $4 billion of cash flow, of which $2.1 billion was returned to shareholders. The company exceeded the midpoint of its guidance, grew its wireless business and its data center business, saw topline growth in the enterprise in the U.S., and acquired SourceFire, an information security provider, and the seventh acquisition this calendar year.
