Posted by | September 21, 2009 .

Google’s justification for acquiring reCAPTCHA makes a lot more sense than Adobe’s for acquiring Omniture.

Bhuvan, India’s Google Earth Killer, for the time being sucks. For now they have the excuses of the terrorist scare and the implications on national security of open access to hi-res geospatial data. While Silverlight scored another win in the sports industry which I won’t report, the Adobe AIR is excited about’s OnBase, the […]

Rounding Up the MAX Widget Week
