Michael Wolff, Rupert Murdoch's authorized biographer said during a CNBC
interview on September 3, 2008 that the conservative media baron is quite
embarrassed by Bill O'Reilly and by his Fox Television network, and he will
vote for Senator Obama in the upcoming elections. CNBC's "Power Lunch" team
interviewed Murdoch biographer Michael Wolff about his Vanity Fair piece and
his upcoming book. Wolff answered Michelle Caruso-Cabrera's sarcastic
questions -she thinks she is the other CNBC dingbat anchor Maria Bartiromo-
as the cluless kid anchor Rebecca Jarvis watched the entire segment without a
single word to say, because the teleprompter had nothing for her to read.

Who says the age of miracles is past? Sun, which loathes Microsoft, is going
to distribute Microsoft’s search toolbar with its Java Runtime Environment.
Nope, it’s not April fool’s. More like Sun and Microsoft slurping out of
the Obama “change” cup.
IE users who download the JRE will be able to download the MSN Toolbar along
Microsoft says the deal is part of its push to get its search widgetry into
“broad-scale distribution” looking for volume for its advertisers.
Good starting place. The Java Runtime Environment is supposed to be on 91% of
all web-connected PC, something like 800 million PCs, and it’s said to be
downloaded “tens of millions” of times a month.”
A Live Search-enabled toolbar is also supposed to appear on HP PCs sold in
the US and Canada starting in January.
Microsoft, of course, is getting sloppy seconds. Google has piggybacked on
JRE since 2005 ... (more)

I’m proud to consider myself an upper middle class American .
Why am I so proud about it?
Because I haven’t been born in an upper middle class American family. I
came to the USA 18 years ago with $200 in my pocket on a visitor’s visa.
Don’t rush reporting on me to the Immigration authorities. I was legal in
this country each and every day since. Then came the work visa (H1B), after
that the green card, and back in 2001, I became an American citizen.
Our family consists of me (silver 15” MacBook Pro), two sons (black 13”
MacBook and a silver 13” MacBook) and my wife (post World War II Windows PC
own by her employer, a filthy rich international bank). I also have an

separated with my MacBook Pro.

About two weeks ago I attended the Strata + HADOOP world conference, February
2015, in San Jose. I think the most notable observation from an IT
perspective is that people are getting serious about it. The second is that
the technology driving the HADOOP ecosystem is evolving at warp speed.

One example for security – Cloudera now says that “Security is
Foundational” and the new default. Cloudera also said that they created a

WASHINGTON, June 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following release was
issued today by the Democratic National Committee:
(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20080519/DNCLOGO )
John McCain may be trying to sell himself as a "maverick" and a "straight
talker" who will tell the truth no matter the consequences, but independent,
non-partisan watchdog groups aren't buying it. Since Senator McCain wrapped
up his Party's nomination, hardly a week has passed without at least one
non-partisan fact checker criticizing McCain for distorting his record on
something. McCain has consistently mischaracterized his record on the war in
Iraq, Hurricane Katrina, tax cuts, the budget, earmarks and health care
To help keep track of all the distortions, the Democratic National Committee
today launched a new feature on McCainpedia called "John McCain vs. the Fact

As former IAC executive Julius Genachowski was appointed last week to
President Elect Obama's transition team, speculation is growing as to the
possibility that Genachowski or someone like him may one day soon become the
country's first Chief Technology Officer. Barack Obama's transition team also
includes Sonal Shah of Google.org and Donald Gips, VP of corporate strategy
and development for Level 3 Communications.
The notion of a CTO was first raised in Obama's Tech and Innovation Plan,
produced by a group that was chaired by Genachowski.
In his Presidential announcement speech in Springfield, IL, back in 2007,
"Let us be the generation that reshapes our economy to compete in the digital
age. Let's se... (more)
