Omissions should be sent to ria (at), and we will endeavor to include them in a future revision of t... (more)

Zimbra Co-Founder Departs Yahoo

Zimbra co-founder Satish Dharmaraj is on his way out of Yahoo and will be replaced by Zimbra exec Jim Morrisroe in March. Yahoo bought the AJAX-based open source/commercial e-mail and calendaring groupware for $350 million in September of 2007 and has been trying to enliven Yahoo Mail with some Zimbra features.

Moving Beyond AJAX: 2008 Is the Decision Year For RIAs

[For an A-Z of RIA Frameworks, from Adobe AIR to Zimbra, click here] Is AJAX fit to serve as spear carrier for next-generation Web technology? That question, asked by the San Diego Business Journal in March 2007, was answered by the sheer scale of the last two AJAXWorld Conference & Expos, in March (New York) and September (Santa Clara). The undisputed answer is "Yes!" So many companies have jumped aboard the AJAX train that when we wanted to do an informal survey the other day on upcoming Web and Internet technology trends, I was able to quickly compile a list of 800 different comp...

GNU Sues Cisco

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has sued Cisco for copyright infringement. It says Cisco’s Linksys division uses GNU code and won’t honor the GPL 2 and LGPL 2 and 2.1 licenses that the GNU software’s distributed under and give customers the source code to the Cisco-modified embedded firmware that would of course let users in turn modify the software. FSF wants the profits that Cisco’s made off of Linksys’ allegedly offending widgetry, damages on top of that doubtlessly tidy sum, and an injunction. This is the first time FSF has ever filed suit. For the last 15 years its enforcer... (more)

Gartner’s Crystal Ball Turns Nasty

Only a month ago Gartner predicted that chip sales would be up 0.2% this year and drop 2.2% next year. Now it’s looked in its crystal ball again and foresees two years of back-to-back revenue decline, something that’s never happened before in the semiconductor industry, where year-over-year growth is the norm. Based on preliminary data, the research house now thinks chips sales this year will be down 4.4% from last year to a total of $261.9 billion after plummeting an unprecedented 24.4% this quarter over last quarter. Then it gets worse. Next year it thinks they’ll be down 16.3% to ... (more)
