Florida House Passes Bill To Ban "Internet Cafes"

Jawbox Re:What? (124 comments)

Read the article! It's all right there. "Cyber cafes" here are nothing more than unregulated casinos. They answer to no one, have no obligation to any sort of transparency. There places are scum that hide behind an innocent name and try to pass off taking money as charitable donations. Actual cyber cafes are unaffected.

Why Freemium Doesn't Work

Jawbox Re:For 1 data point (321 comments)

This! There are no good datapoints in the article, the basic premise isn't backed up, and for Gawd's sake, it's a single blog post about a single Fremium site that didn't work. There's no study, no data, and certainly it's impossible to draw a conclusion about a whole industry based on one developer's experience!

HP Begins Laying Off WebOS Developers, Potentially Firing CEO

Jawbox Re:Does this surprise anyone? (178 comments)

No, the same Friday night Best Buy Canada started liquidating Touchpads, HP Shopping also lowered the price to $99. That same night HP announced the Firesale and the way they would handle it with their partners. On Saturday night Best Buy finally decided to liquidate Touchpads, and sold out their store stock on Sunday.

Sun In Talks To Be Acquired By IBM

Jawbox Re:For $6.5b (526 comments)

Service and Tape Drives and Libraries. IBM and Sun combined means that IBM would make all the Enterprise class Tape drives and libraries. StorageTek (acquired a couple years ago) had the Enterprise market for Tapes and Libraries. In addition, this probably fits pretty well with IBM's service market, which also posts some huge numbers. Storage is one of those areas that still has some stupid-huge margins, and IBM gets Sun's share at a firesale discount. IBM's disk + Suns tape = viable competition to EMC.
