crime does pay! Halliburton was fined $200,000 for destroying evidence related to the British Petroleum (BP) Gulf of Mexico oil spill and that settles the matter.

the Nairobi Kenya airport has its own fire department and is supported by the local firefighters who have one working fire engine and 100 firefighters for a city of 4 million people.

when the Wizard of the Cloud, Marc Benioff, pulled back the curtain and got into bed with Oracle, the mystery and intrigue of the cloud dissipated quickly. The “cloud” is really just an off-premise I.T. factory with an Internet pipe, servers, storage, network, applications, security and a database.
