Covario announced a new, economics-based solution for managing online
presence that challenges the traditional agency model. With its launch of D3
-- Data Driven Decisions for Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Covario has
identified an automation-driven solution that dramatically reduces
inefficiencies in large scale SEO management programs by automating processes
that consume an estimated 30-40 percent of current investment.
"Having worked with large advertisers over the past few years, it's become
apparent that the current model for managing SEO is fundamentally flawed,"
said Craig Macdonald, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of
Covario. "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. It is simply impossible to

If you're an executive that's concerned about the high-cost of proprietary
software, you're not alone. If your IT team pushes back whenever Line of
Business leaders ask them for feature enhancements that goes beyond the
limits of the commercial software packages they've licensed, then you already
know that frustration.

technology scenario? Consider Open Source Software (OSS) and follow in the
footsteps of the previously enlightened.

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
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)
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
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

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

Test Your Sybase Knowledge Gameshow
Four TeamSybase members (Millard Brown, Terry Voth, Mike Nicewarner, and
myself) do battle against a team of Sybase employees. Each team took turns
answering multiple-choice questions off a Jeopardy-style game board. Fifty
percent of the questions were related to Sybase engineering and the rest were
from other walks of life. There were two rounds with a tiebreaker question
just in case. The audience had handhelds and played along. 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 (... (more)
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
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)
