"We don't believe advertisers will move away from agencies in helping them manage SEO, but we do believe that they will move away from agencies that do not use technologies like D3.

Carly Fiorina To Say HP Will Take the Home Media Fight To Intel and Microsoft

SYS-CON Live Coverage of HP - via Google News Hewlett-Packard has no plans to abandon its push into home entertainment, CEO Carly Fiornia will be saying in a keynote address to CES tomorrow. In the past year, HP has followed through with its plans to introduce a number of consumer electronic devices, although analysts question just how successful the initiative has been. HP remains undeterred, planning even more ambitious projects involving both PC and non-PC based hubs. (Photo Copyright SYS-CON Media) Hewlett-Packard and companies like Intel and Microsoft have put their weight behind entertainment systems that meld PCs with media devices such as TVs and cable. Other companies, like AMD, believe consumers do not want their media experience tied to PCs, a view shared by some leading analysts. HP will try to straddle both of these options. HP is developing a nonPC hub ... (more)

Technology Is Back: CES 2005 Was the Turning-Point

2004 was the year that iPod blazed a trail, that Google Inc. went public and watched its stock double from $100 to $200, and that RIM (of Blackberry fame) founder Mike Lazaridis saw his fortune continue to grow. But what of 2005? Has a more widespread bounceback begun? The signs as CES last week would indicate a resounding "Yes!" As everyone who has not been living in a cave for the past 29 years knows, Microsoft is 100% devoted to changing the world - "Most people are still not in the digital realm," said Bill Gates in his opening keynote. But it is far from being the only onion in the stew. An industry-wide technology bounceback has begun. Even Gates himself acknowledged we stand at the threshhold of the post-PC world: "The PC has a central role to play, in that it's where it all comes together - e-mail, instant messaging; if you want to organize your memories in...

Cisco Patches Flaw Highlighted in Las Vegas Security Conferences

Security officials at Cisco have released a patch to fix the Internet Operating System (IOS) problem that resulted in 'Ciscogate' T-shirts going on sale last week in Las Vegas, after Michael Lynn — who gave a controversial presentation on Cisco security (or, rather, insecurity) at the Black Hat Security Conference — was the subject of a permanent injunction preventing him from using any Cisco code in his possession for further reverse engineering or security research or presenting the same material at the DEF CON hacker convention which followed Black Hat. Lynn, who has an extensive background in embedded systems, including kernel development and whose research interests include signals intelligence, cryptography, VoIP, reverse engineering, "and any protocol designed by committee," had recently been concentrating his research focus on securing critical r...

Sybase TechWave 2005 Conference Review

This year TechWave 2005 took place at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. For those of you who didn't make it, the following is a recap of the events, with a couple of thoughts and suggestions thrown in.

They had a chance to win some cool prizes (30GB iPods, PSPs, and Optic Nerve Sunglasses were up for grabs) at the end of each round (so to the audience it is really two games). Jonathan Baker (...

Ajax And Ruby Do Vegas

Two of the hottest technologies to emerge in the past year, Ajax and Ruby on Rails, took center stage this past weekend at the ServerSide Java Symposium in Las Vegas. In fact, you could say that Ruby and Ajax have officially become an item. Yet, it seems the Ajax and Ruby convergence is more the product of skepticism than romance. There are critics in the Java space who voice reservation about the ability of JavaScript to handle the heavy lifting for scripting Ajax applications, necessitating the emergence of Ruby. Chief among the skeptics is Bruce Tate, an independent software consultant based in Austin, Texas, who argued that Java has become so complex it presents a barrier to programmers trying to start working with it. He proposed Ruby as an easier to learn, programmer-friendly alternative. "I do think Java is in trouble on the low end," he told symposium attendees ... (more)
