Getting from here to there, reliably

From point A to point B, sometimes through point C and oftentimes on to D or E, more than 200,000 passengers a day count on ANA to get them to their destinations on time.

So, through more than 800 flights per day, ANA's Flight Management System sees to it, that, as Japan's leading airline in on-time performance, ANA continues to remain on time.

And behind this benchmark of punctuality, working away millisecond by millisecond, is HP technology. Find out more.

Sun Books Tiny Loss as Sales Decline 1 Percent in Q3
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Sun Microsystems continued to have difficulty growing its sales in its third quarter of fiscal 2005, and actually saw sales decline by 1 percent in the quarter to $2.63 billion. Continuing reductions in cost and a $54 million payment for potential patent liabilities from Microsoft in the past year (part of its decade-long settlement with that company) were not enough to make Sun profitable in the quarter, and the company booked a loss of $9 million when all the math was done.

Apple Goes 64-Bit with Tiger Release of OS X
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Apple Computer finally let the cat out of the bag officially, and said that its "Tiger" desktop and server versions of the Mac OS X operating system will begin shipping on April 29. Back in June 2004, when Apple was previewing Tiger at its annual developers conference, the company had promised that the Tiger would ship sometime in the first half of 2005. Apple has met that deadline with a comfortable margin, and this is refreshing to see in a computer industry that often doesn't meet its deadlines. READ MORE >


Black Duck Launches Online IP Service
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

As open source software is being increasingly commercialized by IT vendors, consumed by companies for in-house application development, and mixed with other open source and closed source code with different licensing policies, it is clear that someone or something (meaning a program) has to police the licenses and code that is being used to create applications.
