On this week's EIC squared podcast Dan and I talk about that ongoing Apple-Psystar legal showdown, Cisco and Microsoft's collision course, the Democratic National Convention and Dell's plans for the cloud.

On Wednesday Psystar--that little Mac clone maker in Florida--sued Apple for antitrust violations. The big question: Does Psystar have a case?

Meanwhile, Cisco acquired PostPath for $215 million, a small sum for a deal with big implications. PostPath competes with Microsoft Exchange and Dan and I discuss how Microsoft and Cisco appear to be on a collision course--especially on the collaboration front. Would Zoho be a nice acquisition for Cisco?

Dan also riffs on the Democrat powwow in Denver, the experience and Joe Biden's tech record and closes with a chat about Dell's cloud computing plans and partnership with Salesforce.com.
