Top three mobile application threats

In what cruel observers might describe as a desperate piece of self-promotion,* trade mag Computer Reseller News has inducted ten "computer industry visionaries" into the computer industry Hall of Fame. The inductions are apparently endorsed by the Boston Computer Museum. Those lucky winners still breathing will presumably be welcome at "an invitation-only ceremony to be held in conjunction with Fall Comdex in Las Vegas." They include Paul Allen, Tim Berners-Lee, Charles Wang, John Warnock and Steve Wozniak. Now we can understand why Ross Cooley, described by CRN as the developer of Compaq's channel programme, might have taken till 1998 to receive the recognition he manifestly deserves, but what about the others? Aren't they so famous they ought to have been in the Hall of Fame for years? Ah, it appears the Hall of Fame only got started last year, and kicked-off with a clutch of easy ones, including His Billness, Andy Grove, Steve Jobs and Ray Noorda. *In a blatant bid for more hits, The Register today inducted Linus Torvalds into its Computer Industry Hall of Fame. ® Click for more stories
