Revenue and profits have been sinking for so long now that it is easy to just see cloud computing and move on to something seemingly more relevant.
… as it represents the company’s ongoing transformation into a cloud computing giant. In Microsoft’s fiscal year 2013, it stood at about $ 1 billion, but it …
As iPhone sales growth slows, Apple has pointed to software and services like Apple Music, Apple Pay, and iCloud as strong revenue generators. But the company’s quest to turn its cloud services into the next big thing has been sabotaged by internal conflicts, The Information reported on Thursday.
The problem: Apple needs to develop new infrastructure to make iCloud and iTunes more reliable. Anyone who has been prompted to enter their Apple ID and password over and over again for no reason can attest to the need for a back-end overhaul. But the company reportedly has two engineering teams on the project who just can’t seem to get along. One is the group that worked on the platform that powers Siri, which Apple decided to expand to other cloud services. That puts the 1,000-person iCloud engineering team, headed by Eric Billingsley, at risk of becoming obsolete.

As the number of people who’ve received their Tesla Model X increases, so do the various bugs and glitches their new owners are noticing. Among the more serious, are problems with the car’s falcon-wing doors, which in some cases either won’t open, or won’t close.
In a report Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal highlighted the example of a Tesla Model X owner whose $ 138,000 car’s doors wouldn’t open. And on Tuesday, Consumer Reports wrote about the experience of another Model X owner who had the opposite problem: One of the car’s falcon wing doors wouldn’t close, and on one occasion, the door’s sensor malfunctioned and the door bumped into an overhang, resulting in minor damage.

Cloud computing is changing the game for one of the hardest problems in IT: running a network.
Users are counting on fast, secure access more than ever, even as networks get more complex and threats more dangerous. Often, there’s a lot of data available about the state of a network and its performance, but more data by itself can’t solve a problem. So startups are turning to the growing power of the cloud for answers.
Nyansa, based in Silicon Valley, emerged from stealth mode on Monday with Voyance, a cloud-based SaaS (software-as-a-service) offering that analyzes inputs from wired and wireless LANs to gauge users’ actual experiences on a network.
I was standing in the security line at an airport when a TSA worker came walking alongside the line yelling out in an animated way, “No liquids, no aerosols, no gels or creams on the airplane…You better check yourself before you wreck yourself!” I couldn’t stop myself from laughing out loud. As the CEO of over a thousand employees at the time, I couldn’t help but imagine what it would be like if every CEO walked through the halls of their company yelling out something similar…”No negativity, no dishonesty, no disrespect in the workplace…You better check yourself before you wreck yourself!” Frankly, it might actually be a good idea. After all, that TSA worker certainly got every one of us standing in the line that day to think twice about what we had in our carry-ons.
