    As corporations tried to outdo themselves in propaganda for Earth Day, I am struck by two stark facts:  government defined mandates for more green energy haven't worked and companies investing in green as a part of a larger corporate mandate have been successful. Continued angst in Europe over the costs of green energy, including the rising price of electricity due to subsidies for renewable power, is only part of the problem.  Carbon trading schemes in Europe also cratered due in part to a recession that dropped the price of a ton of carbon from over $39 in 2006 to below $6.50 a…

    As Microsoft has embraced its identity as a devices and services company, we’ve also embraced energy’s role in powering the cloud. In the past 12 months, we have made significant progress on an energy strategy that will reduce the resources required to deliver cloud services, from our power purchase agreement with a 110 MW wind farm in Texas, to datacenter innovations like in-rack power generation and biogas-powered datacenters. These initiatives are bound together by our objective to transform the energy supply chain toward radically greater efficiency and reduced environmental impact.

I am happy to announce the successful demonstration of the concept at the National Fuel Cell Research Center at UC Irvine. We successfully demonstrated a rack of servers powered directly off the direct current (DC) output of the fuel cell stack, essentially stripping out most of the infrastructure found in the traditional data center energy supply chain.

    7 April marks the 50th anniversary of the mainframe. It was on that day in 1964 that the System/360 was announced and the modern mainframe was born. IBM’s Big Iron, as it came to be called, took a big step ahead of the rest of the BUNCH (Burroughs, UNIVAC, NCR, Control Data Corporation, and Honeywell). The big leap of imagination was to have software that was architecturally compatible across the entire System/360 line.

And you can form groups so discussions, that are only relevant to a small group of people, stay within that small group or team.

    There are many companies that long for the days where landlines were still the norm, particularly when it comes to debt collecting. Because landlines were analogue and geographic in nature, which meant that callers had no idea who has ringing and whoever was calling knew or could find the address that landline was attached to, people were simply more likely to answer their phones. Close to 30 million South Africans regularly use mobile phones, whilst only 5 million own landlines. This has left the majority of the population able to not only travel freely, but to identify callers. The average…

This has meant that customer satisfaction has become vitally important. But how exactly does one achieve that?

    by Bruce von Maltitz It’s hard to believe that ice was once a precious commodity. But in the early 1800s, a man called Frederic Tudor (affectionately known as the “Ice King”) made his fortune shipping thousands of tons of ice across the globe. Until Tudor entered the scene, ice was little more than an inconvenience in winter. Thanks to his persistence, it soon became a standard offering in bars and restaurants – and even hospitals, where it was used to treat fever. It was an expensive operation – laborers sawed blocks of ice apart by hand and floated them down a stream where a…
