HP Claims Their Moonshot System is a 'New Style of IT' (Video)
The moonshot is targeted for a different workload than general computing. We are currently looking at them for replacing our VDI solution. We have several pieces of software that need a better video card and cpu than what a typical VM could provide. With the moonshot we can simply install our software on the bare metal hardware and skip the visualization layer. The moonshot supports 45 blades and you can get a blade that has 4 servers built in, without a hard drive of course. 45 * 4 = 180 desktops per 4.3U with better performance CPU and video wise. I think the moonshot has it's place in more specialty places but defiantly not general computing.

Software-Defined Data Centers Might Cost Companies More Than They Save
Most archival solutions that enable end-users to search the archives are more expensive than just purchasing the disk storage.
My view of touchscreen laptops:
Why does everyone automatically assume that if you get a touch screen you will throw the keyboard and mouse away? I almost always use the keyboard and mouse but there are times I would love to have a touch screen. Mostly while I give presentations and such. Why not use what's best for the job and not pick only one or the other?

Ask Slashdot: On the Job Certification Training?
Where I work, All certification is paid for by the company and we get to do it on company time. There is actually a budget set aside for training and everyone can take as many classes and certifications as they want )as long as it's relevant to their job) until that budget is gone.
Report: Windows Blue Reaches Its First Milestone Build
I have met a few people excited about the Metro screen. But these people barely know how to use a computer and to them, Metro is a lot easier to find what programs they want to run.
I personally don't mind Windows 8 and Metro although the first thing I did was set the default for all Metro apps to the full version and pin my most used programs to the taskbar. Any time that I need another program, I simply hit the windows key, type in the first few characters of what I want and hit enter. Metro pops up and goes away quickly.

Thousands of Publicly Accessible Printers Searchable On Google
I can't remember the name of it but there is some big library software that requires printers with public IP addresses. The printers sit at the clients site but are configured on the companies servers directly. They recommend that no firewall is configured because it might interfere with the print jobs. I only found out because I had to replace a Jet-direct card that was hosed. They finally started allowing printing to locally attached printers last year but most setups are still the old way.

Form what it looks like to me, they are using the random increases and decreases to create a sort of "fingerprint" of the recording. This fingerprint could then be used to verify that the recording is genuine at any other time. It would be very hard to duplicate the random noise in a recording exactly if you tried to tamer with the recording.

System Admins Should Know How To Code
Programmers code programs
Administrators code scripts
The difference is that programs are used but lots of people and generally have nice GUI interfaces. Scripts are used by 1 or 2 people (sometimes more) and are used to make your life easier.
Even Windows 8 Users Prefer Windows 7
I also run Win8 at home. Just like I used the quick launch in XP and pinned all my apps to the taskbar in Win7, I have pinned all my apps in Win8 to the tasbar and stay in desktop view. I don't care for the simpler color scheme. It looks like windows is taking a step back to Win 3.1. Overall Win8 is not bad.
I agree that it is buggy but I blame most of that on NVidia. Tried their new Win8 drivers for my video card and they would crash all the time. Reverted back to the Win7 drivers and the crashing has stopped.
