It works really well for the sort of clips that no band would want to put on myspace (jams, demos, ideas etc.).Can't see Huddle making it though. Google does it all already for the small business, larger ones run their own sharepoints.

Fashionable.Microprocessors, on the other hand, are ugly and boring. They're for those funny engineers to fiddle about with. Not good old tech journalists.You're very right, ARM has done some excellent work. The companies that Rory mentions are not only paling in insignificance, they wouldn't have caught anyone's attention without incessant glamour and artsy Web 2.0 apps. But then, that's what Silicon Valley is nowadays. A bunch of VC-loaded Facebook-Twitter addicts all vying for supremacy and user adoption.

Now there are more ARM processors in the worldthan Intel PCs and there are also more phones runningSymbian OS than Apple iPhones (true this probably won't last forever, with Android, RIM's Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Palm's Pre and other newer systems gaining lots of ground)...the point is we should celebrate some HUGE UK succeses as well as these marvellous smart Internet companies. As well as Web 2.0 based and Cloud (e.g. Citrix' Xen system used by AMazon and Tescos), there's also a huge number of small CGI companies in the UK doing games and movies - just because they aren't household names doesn't mean we don't have a wonderful base of computing and it's more robust than having all your eggs in one giant Microsoft-sized basket:) Mon 09 Nov 2009 10:23:56 GMT+1
