by Timothy Prickett Morgan

After more than 18 months of development, the first three machines in Sun Microsystems "Galaxy" line of Opteron-based servers make their debut yesterday at the company's quarterly announcement event, which is being held in New York. There will be a lot of bad puns, such as Sun hitching its star on the Galaxies or people calling them "Becky Boxes," because Andy Bechtolsheim, Sun's founder and CTO, returned to Sun to create the Galaxies. There may also be accidental puns, since X and Z are really close on the keyboard and I keep typing "Galazy." READ MORE >

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

by Timothy Prickett Morgan

IT companies use trade shows and user group meetings to energize various announcements, and Hewlett Packard was all set to use the HP Technology Forum this week in New Orleans as a means of talking about new products and services it was delivering to customers. But Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans and wiped the city out, and that was the end of Technology Forum.
