A startup emerges to use wireless mesh and the cloud to fight energy theft
- A Canadian startup called “Awesense” is looking to cut down on energy
theft. This theft can occur from people tapping directly into high-voltage
wires and using the power for illicit means. The intent is for power workers
to be able to see how much energy is supposed to be distributed, and what is
actually distributed. This solution is a mobile one, with clampable sensors
and more. Via GigaOM, more here. Support for old Office formats ending soon

Google CEO Eric Schmidt (pictured) thinks we’re out of the woods of
Armageddon and are now somewhere in the netherworld between stabilization and
Large advertisers are coming back but he still calls the economic environment
“weak.” He credited the company’s resilience for its performance.
Google pulled the stops out and applied fiscal discipline – like cutting
payroll by 378 people – to come in with second-quarter earnings of $1.48
billion, $4.66 a share, up 19% year-over-year on revenues up a very
un-Google-like of only ~3% to $5.52 billion. A low tax rate helped.
Traffic acquisition costs (TAC) cut total revenues ~27% to $4.07 billion, a
shade better than some analysts had projected.
Google’s growth rate in the quarter was the lowest since it went public
five years ago and its second consecutive quarter of single-digit growth,
according to the AP.

Do you want your customers and/or employees to have a speedy, no-hassle

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced the beta of their new storage
gateway functionality that enables access of Amazon S3 (Simple Storage
Services) from your different applications using an appliance installed in
your data center site.
With this beta launch, Amazon joins other startup vendors who are providing

those who have disappeared from the market (e.g. Cirtas). In addition to
gateway vendors, there are also those with cloud access added to their
software tools such as (e.g. Jungle Disk that access both Rack space and
Amazon S3 along with Commvault Simpana Cloud connector among others). There
are also vendors that have joined cloud access gateways as part of their
storage systems such as TwinStrata among others. Even EMC (and here) has
gotten into the game adding qualified cloud acces... (more)
Recently I've been thinking about what happens to an identity through its
life cycle and how the identity data is treated during this process. I
think you will also see that the Enterprise itself has differing methods of
dealing with it as well. I am considering this to be the beginning of a
framework and nomenclature that one can use for expressing how people relate
to their Identity data on a number of different levels. I think we can pretty
much consider this to be a "work in progress," and I would greatly appreciate
So why do we need this, anyway? I have observed that organizations,
consulting groups, and other industry experts relate to Identity based
information. It seems that we all have our own set of assumptions about what
is supposed to happen to this information based on our roles and
responsibilities and that such a framework will help to org... (more)
