by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Power6: Later in 2007 Rather than Sooner?
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

There is some hubbub in the server market that IBM's Power6 processors have shifted to a later ship date than perhaps Big Blue had planned. It is hard to say for sure exactly what is going on, since IBM does not provide future ship dates for products that are not announced and has vagued up the product roadmaps it shows partners and customers in recent weeks. But IBM's press relations and top executives have said repeatedly that Power6 will ship in systems in the second half of 2007. READ MORE >

Slowing U.S. Sales Hurt IBM's First Quarter
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

IBM reported its financial results for the first quarter of 2007 today, kicking off the earnings season for the year for the major players in the IT market. Big Blue's sales were just a hair over $22 billion, up 6.6 percent, with net income of $1.8 billion, up 8 percent. The interesting news is that sales were flat in the United States, and as you might expect, sales in the booming Asia/Pacific region helped give IBM growth. Europe, which is often a problem area when it comes to growth for IBM, helped out this time, too, thanks in large part to the strength of the euro against the dollar. READ MORE >


As I See It: Disorderly Conduct
by Victor Rozek

Can you focus? Can you read this article without bits of your attention splitting off like excess electrons? Is your concentration stronger than the pull of distractions? Mine isn't. I wish I could write my articles in one sitting, but usually I can't. My mind wanders and my body follows. The kitchen needs tidying; the mail waits to be retrieved; Bill Moyers is on the radio and I revel in the reminder that wisdom has not perished from public discourse. READ MORE >
