Computer Trade Group Alleges Unfair Trading Practices at Sun
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

This week, server maker Sun Microsystems was slapped with a complaint from a trade group representing worldwide dealers in used Sun equipment, the Association of Service and Computer Dealers International. The ASCDI filed its complaint with the United Kingdom's Office of Fair Trading against Sun Microsystems UK Limited, the company's British subsidiary, and in that filing it alleges that Sun is engaging in unfair trading practices that stifle the trading of secondhand Sun gear not only in the United Kingdom or across Europe, but around the world.

HP Chases Data Warehousing Dollars with Tweaked NonStop Servers
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Sometimes you don't have to teach an old dog a new trick, but rather just remember that the dog used to know other tricks than the one it does today. And so it is with a new data warehousing platform called Neoview from Hewlett-Packard, which is based on the company's fault tolerant NonStop product line. The NonStop servers, which were created by some ex-HPers a few decades ago, have traditionally been used for high volume transaction processing. READ MORE >

Sun Grows Sales and Profits Despite Product Transitions
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The majority of the revenues and most likely the lion's share of the profits of Sun Microsystems still come from servers, their associated storage, and operating systems. And considering the number of product transitions underway at Sun, it is something of an accomplishment that the company was able to boost its sales by 3.3 percent to hit $3.3 billion in sales in its third quarter of fiscal 2007, which ended April 1. The company even managed to bring some dough to the bottom line. READ MORE >


As I See It: Induced Labor
by Victor Rozek

I've been reading a lot lately about the great American labor shortage. Boomers are beginning to retire and expire, the theory goes, and corporations are scrambling to find sufficient legions of white-collar professionals to fill the void. Having looked in all the closets and finding no professionals lurking within, they have little choice but to continue outsourcing high-tech jobs and taking reluctant advantage of foreign labor through the H-1B program.
