- There's a pretrial schedule for the Novell case now, so events should finally start ramping up in the near future. If the schedule is to be believed, at any rate. There's a bit more about the schedule in a recent GL article.
- We got a new SCO press release yesterday. It looks like another boring Me Inc. "customer win" tale, but hidden cleverly within it we learn about a brand new Me Inc. app SCO hasn't mentioned before, something called "Mobile Order". (SCO's marketing guy(s) must've worked overtime on that name.) The fine print indicates "Mobile Order" is a custom-built app requiring
Atlas Paper makes paper bags, btw. Insert clever "bagholder" joke here.
- Enderle gets quoted in an article about rising concert ticket prices. Wearing his ill-fitting music industry guru hat, bemoans how kids these days aren't loyal to favorite bands anymore, not like it was back in his day when everyone picked a band and followed it to the bitter end. As a grumpy ol' boomer, he might be pleased to know that not one but two competing versions of Jefferson Airplane/Starship are still touring and putting out new material. Wikipedia says one of them was on the Today show a couple of weeks ago. I suppose that's a step up from doing the county fair circuit, which is where Night Ranger is these days, touring in support of their latest (2007) album. They'll be at the Umatilla County Fair out in Hermiston OR (pop. 15,030) on August 10th. Tickets may still be available.
Remember, kids, be very, verrrrry careful when you pick a favorite band, because then you're stuck with 'em forever, at least if Enderle has any say in it.
- The trademark troll Leo Stoller gets a smackdown, delivered with wit and style. Meanwhile we're still waiting for any word from Utah. Maybe Kimball's trying to deliver something like the Stoller ruling and came down with a bad case of writer's block or something. It makes as much sense as all the other theories do.
- Sony sues its own rootkit vendor. I've seen this movie before. The plan goes awry, and then the perps turn on each other. Sort of like Reservoir Dogs.
