Recently we made some changes here in our office and as a result I ended up with an old IBM laser printer (model 4019). But I'm also running Windows 7 and, on the surface, it appears that Windows 7 does not have a driver for my old IBM -- and here's why. By default, Windows 7 (and likely Vista as well, but not sure on this) does not load all available printer drivers just some of the most popular ones from the more well known companies -- Epson, HP, Xerox, etc. So, as a result, when you first see the …

Companies using IBM's Rational and Tivoli product will breathe easier today, thanks to new, integrated versions of nine tools that the company says will facilitate communication and closer collaboration between software development and support teams in the enterprise. What's more, prices will remain where they are, and the updates are free for current subscribers. According to the company, the integrations are intended to address individual frustration points that it sees being experienced by teams, particularly those of the geographically dispersed variety, and improve efficiency for organizations using both through automation. One of the four couplings involves Rational ClearQuest, which development …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]19325[/ATTACH]A big part of what makes us human is the way we communicate with each other. We speak words, big deal, machines can do that. But what sets us apart as humans are the flaws, nuances, slang, shorthand and ambiguity we often use when we speak. The famous game show Jeopardy asks questions that are not designed for a computer to answer. They are spoken in natural English language, a form of communication that is not what computers were designed to understand… until now.

Just because security holes and vulnerabilities get reported to software vendors doesn't mean they are actually patched. A new report from IBM's X-Force security team found that of all the software holes reported in the first half of this year, more than half are still unpatched. IBM's X-Force report is published twice per year and provides an in-depth look at software security from across the spectrum of developers. So far this year, the bug catchers are doing better than the bug squashers. More bugs are being reported, but more are going unpatched. In the first six months of 2010, 4,396 …

[URL="http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS22467210"]According to market researcher International Data Corp. (IDC)[/URL], worldwide factory revenue for servers grew 11 percent year-over-year in the second quarter of this year to $10.9 billion and unit sales grew 23.8 percent. The difference in revenue and unit sales is attributable to price pressure driving down the average sale price of servers, but after the double digit percentage losses in 2009, it's still welcomed news for server vendors. The 23.8 percent year-over-year growth is also an improvement over Q1, when …

The economic news has been so bad of late, it's actually difficult to imagine that some businesses are profitable. It's easy to get sucked into the abyss of huge layoffs, high unemployment figures and generally negative fall-out from the economic meltdown, but in spite of all this, there are technology companies that are making boat loads of cash and doing just fine. One caveat here: Earnings can be interpreted in a number of ways. It seems either you made money or you didn't, but there are a number of factors that go into this. With that in mind, I give …

As a FOSS (Free, Open Source Software) advocate, I find myself in a state of shock over what I've observed over the past ten or so years in this realm. If I asked you to name the most successful open source companies (Companies that derive the majority of their income from open source software), which ones would you name? [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat[/URL]? [URL="http://www.novell.com"]Novell[/URL]? [URL="http://www.mysql.com"]MySQL[/URL]? [URL="http://www.canonical.com"]Canoncial[/URL]?

According to figures revealed with the publication of the [URL="http://www.ibm.com/security/xforce"]IBM X-Force 2009 Trend and Risk Report[/URL], not only do web application vulnerabilities remain the largest category of security disclosure for the last year but, worryingly when you consider that the number of such vulnerabilities found by organisations has not decreased or become less of a threat, some 67 percent of them had no patch available by the end of 2009. With 49 percent of all vulnerabilities being related to web applications in some regard, with cross-site scripting disclosures surpassing SQL injection to take the top spot, this is worrying news …

So just how many great ideas did you have last year? IBM managed to come up with 4895 during the course of 2009 that were good enough to be granted patents from the US Patent and Trademarks Office, cementing the Big Blue reputation as being King of the Patents. That eclipses the [URL="http://www.itpro.co.uk/blogs/daveyw/2009/01/15/4186-ibm-patents-in-one-year/"]previous record breaking year[/URL] of 2008 when IBM were granted 4186 of the things.
