Researchers Crack Android Encryption

Researchers Show How to Crack Android Encryption – Thomas Cannon and Seyton Bradford have successfully shown brute force attacks against Android encryption at DEFCON.  Because Android encryption is based on the Linux dm-crypt, it is easily broken on either Android 3.x or 4.x devices.

Who is VMware in 2013? – A Company in Transition

It's that time of year again. Time for the industry's most influential infrastructure gathering, VMworld. And, as has become an annual occurrence, I jot down some pre-show thoughts about the event (2012, 2011). Who is VMware in 2013? While Pat Gelsinger was introduced at the 2012 VMworld as the new CEO, replacing Paul Maritz, the themes and strategy were still very much inline with Maritz's prior plans. Since then Gelsinger has narrowed the focus of the company, shed many products and begun putting his leadership team in place. So I'll be very interested to see how VMware gets presented this year. Gelsinger has not yet named a new CTO or CMO, so this year's event should very much be a representation of how he wants to present the company to the world. VMware is definitely a company in transition. Server virtualization is a mature market. The role of the desktop is bei... (more)

Tempest About Teens Using Twitter Stirred by Twits

One of the reasons I decided to strike out on my own and focus on writing for this industry was to perhaps help influence the way companies are presenting themselves to the industry and media and also calm down some of the crazy hype out there. I just, for example, read something about a software company making a "quantum leap" in something or other. Adrian's crew flagged that one. I read press releases all the time that are suspect, and increasingly, in this frenzied effort to feed the 24-hour news beast, stuff that then gets written out of that PR without much thought as to what's being reported. This mild rant is actually not about the DS/DOOH industry, but it could be just as easily. All day, I have seen reports on my RSS newsreader from mainstream news and technology blogs about the report from Morgan Stanley that says teens aren't using Twitter. Hmmm, I though... (more)

Why Microsoft Should Finally Buy Citrix

DISCLAIMER: This is long and the opinions are mine. I’ve written a good bit here about the various ways Microsoft and Citrix overlap in the hypervisor space, ranging from topics like shared code base through competition for the desktop space. To me, these two players have always been the underdogs battling for the right to go head-to-head against VMware in the main enterprise (and now cloud) virtual data center event. I’ve long said here that I think Microsoft is in the best position to make that move, but to be honest, Citrix currently has better technology. In other words, Microsoft has a better strategic play, Citrix a better tactical play. The announcements that came of out Synergy last week prove that. Citrix knows what it’s doing and they know how to build virtualization products to compete with VMware. As has been asked many times before, here and elsewhere:... (more)
