On this week's EIC squared podcast Dan and I talk Google's Chrome browser, Apple's iPod event next week and my theory that Dell and Salesforce.com should merge.
On Google's Chrome browser we riffed on the importance of the launch, how it's really a battle over cookie files and how Mozilla's Firefox browser may take a hit. You can find all the Chrome coverage you can digest on ZDNet and News.com.
The other main event coming up is Apple's iPod event. Apple sent out the invite for its Sept. 9 event where it's widely expected that new iPods are on the way. The sideshow, however, will be on Apple CEO Steve Jobs and his appearance following neverending rumors about his health.
And finally we kick around my theory that Dell and Salesforce.com could merge. I make my case, which admittedly could be a stretch, but stranger things have happened. A potential combination won't happen today, but could be possible down the line.
As for next week, we're on the road at Demo, TechCrunch 50, SAP TechEd, CTIA and Apple's powwow.
