Intel, along with other technology heavyweights, have formed a group to promote USB 3.0 with plans to deliver a specification in the first half of 2008.
Intel's announcements at its 2007 Developer Forum in San Francisco centred around the availability of its Penryn processors later this year and future plans for its Nehalem microarchitecture, but CEO Paul Otellini also used the opening keynote to show off some cool prototypes and other fancy equipment.
Even though the loyal fanbase of committed Salesforce.com users and partners at Dreamforce had to wait while Marc Benioff pitched his Force.com vision to the outside world, their needs remain front and center of Salesforce.com's product strategy.

Let me go on record now. The perimeter is alive and well.
Notable headlines:Ed Bott: Everything you’ve read about Vista DRM is wrong (Part 2).David Berlind: If true, Jobs quote of "A 3G iPhone later next year" should kill demand for iPhone 1.
With the iPhone freshly launched in Europe, only now are we starting to get an idea of the true extent of Apple's power over the mobile operators.
What's changed? Not much, we might now type different commands or push different buttons but it's the people part of the job that counts and that hasn't changed much at all.
Already having conceded to upset "early adopters" of the iPhone who were taken by surprise when Apple dropped the price of the 8GB iPhone (and dropped the 4GB iPhone altogether), Apple may have yet a new crisis on its hands: CEO Steve Jobs' apparent pre-announcement that a 3G version of the iPhone will be available next year.If the report is true, this could be worse news for Apple given that the price drop had to have come so soon to stimulate demand.
It is pretty obvious that Apple is working on future iPhone models and there has been lots of speculation that a 3G model would be released in Europe this year. However, as confirmed by the O2 UK iPhone announcement from earlier today the first European model will also be 2.5G (EDGE) just like the U.S. model. Upon further questioning at the UK announcement, Jobs did confirm that a 3G model will be released before the end of 2008. He also stated that the reason 3G was not included in the first iPhone was the battery drain users would experience with the 3G radio. Honestly, as much as 3G would be nice on the iPhone I agree with the compromise Apple made for the first edition, especially given the fact that the iPhone battery is non-removable. If they had used a removable battery then they could have included a 3G radio, like Windows Mobile and S60 devices.
I think most people know I'm a big fan of Google. They can have my search data for as long as they keep giving me new tools and integrating those tools throughout my browsing experience.
I've been following the Curl developer blog a lot more closely since Marc Orchant started working there and I wanted to point it out because while they obviously talk a lot about Curl, I've also been impressed with their posts on rich Internet applications in general. There aren't enough blogs out there that break down the theory behind RIAs.
