And here is thy corporate future… two years from now, personal computer will take a back seat. The personal cloud will be the new sun of the
corporate solar system. It will be the everyone’s most important possession… which is strange because it’s not tangible. That, however, is beside the point. Gartner’s scientific crystal ball has revealed what the corporate world will look like in 2014… and it’s cloudy.
This needs clarification.

flip-flop is so passe’
With the seeming increased acceptance of political flip-flopping, the once admonished activity has crept its way, with the same acceptance into the tech corporate world.
Three of the latest examples are Hewlett Packard on webos, and pc’s, and Oracle on cloudcompute.
Oct. 2009 Larry Ellison bashes cloud as just a new term for the same old tech.
Oct. 2011 Oracle announces cloud strategy.
Nov. 2011 Oracle has a head of strategy for Oracle Cloud Services Tyler Jewell.
Apr. 2010 HP acquires Palm and webOS.
Jun. 2011 HP announces webos touchpad tablet release in the US.
Aug. 2011 HP announces spin-off of pc business and no longer supports webOS phones, or tablets.
Oct. 2011 HP announces keeping pc biz.
Can we replace the political term flip-flop with whitman’d, or ellison’d, hp’d, or oracled?
