Hackers targeting San Diego?

Are computers in San Diego more vulnerable to hacker attacks than computers in other places, or is something else behind the recent disclosures of security breaches? ‘Net Insider Scott Bradner this week speculates on why information security failures are making headlines in San Diego and not in other places.

Maintaining maintenance

Hardware is becoming more reliable, and software revisions are becoming less frequent – resulting in “Maytag repairman syndrome,” says Jeff Kaplan of THINKstrategies. While this might be great for users, vendors need to figure out how to replace the revenue stream they used to get from maintenance contracts. Here’s how they plan to do it.

The upside of N+I

Although last week’s NetWorld+Interop saw fewer attendees and smaller booths, the networking trade show still managed to generate news, points out Network World Editor-in-Chief John Dix. Plus, he spoke with execs at several companies who saw the value in the show.

The cool side of N+I

As usual, Keith Shaw looks at the cooler side of networking trade shows – not routers and switches, but instead videoconferencing gear and notebook stands.
