"The vast scale of services like Amazon S3 or Google Apps provide new ways to establish or augment backup and disaster recovery plans. Realistically, many large corporations won't trust their data to Google or Amazon.com (and they probably shouldn't). However, they will trust IBM, AT&T, and other big companies, as they start to expand their offerings."

Not shocking!  -Carl

"A new TV commercial shows kids eating hot dogs in a school cafeteria and one little boy's haunting lament: 'I was dumbfounded when the doctor told me I have late-stage colon cancer.' It's a startling revelation in an ad that vilifies one of America's most beloved, if maligned, foods, while stoking fears about a dreaded disease."

Yet there are cases where both sides recognize the need to thoroughly eradicate electronic data, such as when an employee has spirited away proprietary information to a new job and the old employer needs assurance it won't be exploited. It's a simple-sounding task that's harder and more expensive than many lawyers and judges appreciate."

"Given how cheap storage has become, it's understandable that enterprises are expanding arrays to house growing data. But stocking up on hardware and software to hold more and more information is a costly misstep...Compliance regulations and legal concerns are pressuring IT to keep every bit and byte of data just in case a litigation issue arises, and since storage costs are decreasing, the urge to push another box into play can be tempting."

"Research In Motion's BlackBerry device paved the way for smartphone acceptance in the enterprise, but business is embracing other devices as well. Apple's decision to enable Microsoft Exchange on the iPhone made a huge difference for that device, for example."
