On Monday the Canadian version of Microsoft.com accidentally posted the pricing grid for Vista the new operating system slated to launch sometime in September. The story was first posted at Neowin.net and Microsoft has since pulled the page off the site. Here is the pricing:


  • Windows Vista Ultimate $450
  • Home Premium will be $270
  • Upgrade to Vista Ultimate will also cost $270
  • Upgrade to Home Premium will cost $180

As many of you know I am a bit of a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Strategy geek. I really enjoy the changing landscape of search as a tool and solution for the Business Intelligence Network and for our advertisers. This past week I was asked by the Western Fulfillment Management Association's (WFMA) to speak on the subject of vertical search and how it impacts business. The webcast contains some very useful information that many of you might enjoy and be able to apply to your online strategy.

In short advertising on a vertical search engine really does need to be part of your strategy, it provides higher ROI, and less risk. Check out BeyeSEARCH.com to investigate ways you can reach our community through this channel and save money that you might be wasting on campaigns with general search engines.

You can listen to the web event here.

My compliments to Meighan and the gang for executing another fantastic event in San Diego last week. I really think the Hyatt is a perfect venue (especially if your rooms in the harbour tower). We had great meetings and briefings with many vendors. On Tuesday Jill Dyche and Claudia Imhoff hosted podcast interviews with a TDWI, Silver Train, DataFlux, Business Objects, Teleran, Microsoft, Hyperion, Sybase, Oracle, Composite, SAS, Informatica and Sun. They are available on the site for your listening pleasure.

I got to eat at Croce's again it's a great place in the Gaslamp district the food was really good, John's joke is still making me laugh/cringe and it was great to have Kristy along.

The hospitality suites were fun, I gave my Microsoft dollars to Diann and I'm waiting to hear if she cleaned up at the tables.

Thanks for dinner Tuesday evening Jim, it was good fun!!

Geek Story Alert!!!
Imagine if you will......storage so powerful that you could fit 12.8 million gigbytes of information ito a cubic centimeter. I guess that would make my 1 gig thumb drive obsolete. Anyway, I found this article on the Drexel University site and its pretty cool. Check it out.
