Umm, About That $100m Microsoft Funneled to SCO

A piece of juicy compromising e-mail written by a SCO consultant to SCOsource VP Chris Sontag and SCO CFO Bob Bench last October suggesting that Microsoft had quietly funneled $86 million to SCO and that it was good for at least $106 million before tapping all possibilities happened to turn up on open source philosopher Eric Raymond's web site Thursday. Eric made it part of his Microsoft-embarrassing internal documents collection and dubbed it Halloween X. (See www.opensource.org.) He says he got it from an "anonymous whistleblower inside SCO," which is odd because, given the timing and other little niceties, one would be tempted to think that it was a bit of SCO discovery that somehow got loose from IBM. Oh, yeah, Eric is a sometime consultant for IBM and his anti-SCO credentials are impeccable. Right at the top of the kinda disjointed e-mail the consultant, one Mik... (more)

APIs in the 'Internet of Things' By @Axway | @ThingsExpo [#IoT #API]

The Power of Real-Time APIs - Apple Watch and BMW One of the most exciting parts of this week's Apple Watch launch was the example of the BMW watch app. This app allows you to see the charging status of your BMWi electric car, right from your wrist. You can also check the status of the doors of your car (important information such as if they are locked or not!). Although the star of the show was the watch app, APIs had a cameo appearance, since the information shown on the watch is fetched in real-time from APIs. It happens that there is already an example of a watch app for BMIs cars, pulling data in real-time from APIs. If you want to find more about the underlying APIs, check out the Axway/IC-Consult webinar about how APIs power the connected car. As you can see below, not only are watch apps involved (in this case the Samsung Gear example), but also mobile apps. Th... (more)

Unnatural Acts

Ah, television! Where else can you see so much action? Murders are routinely committed and solved, dastardly plots are hatched and foiled, and characters learn some deep life-truth - all within a single hour. This makes the runaway success of ESPN's "World Series of Poker" and the Travel Channel's "World Poker Tour" all the more mysterious. What is it about a group of middleaged men, 11.5-gram clay chips, and 52 brightly colored cards gathered about a large felt-covered table that's so appealing to so many? When I was in a bookstore recently looking for books on poker, the sales clerk looked at me knowingly as I made my purchase. "We've been selling a lot of those," she told me. "Do you watch the games on TV?" I admitted I had. While many people have played "Wednesday night poker" with friends for years, I've been a latecomer to it. Feeling slightly guilty for the ye...

CFUN (www.cfconf.org/cfun-04/) stands for ColdFusion User Network, and based on my trip to CFUN-04 there were plenty of people learning, networking, and having fun doing it! CFUN Day Zero and Some Helium While the conference proper didn't start until June 26, I flew in a day early to catch up with some of the other speakers at the MMUG manager meeting day and the speaker dinner. I spent a lot of the day talking to Matt Liotta about He3 - his company's new ColdFusion editor, based on Eclipse, that debuted in beta form at CFUN. The CFUN "party pack" contained the He3 beta on CD along with many other goodies. So what does He3 offer? A color-coding ColdFusion editor with tag completion - a little rough round the... (more)
