3 Big data security analytics techniques

We tried to register WWW.SOMETHING.COM as mentioned in Loot Gerstner's speech last week as we thought we'd auction the name for charity. Readers last week will have noticed that Lou "Boots" Gerstner, CEO of Big Blue with a salary to match, was worried that WWW.SOMETHING.COM would come from no-where and destroy his business. This despite the fact that IBM admitted last week it had lost $1 billion on PC sales in 1998, thanks to new regulations in the US. Helas, we could not register www.something.com because, our people tell us a New Jersey company has done that thing already. So who is the New Joisey contendor, we asked our registrar general of domains. He said: "I'd look in the direction of IBM." Journalists were awaiting confirmation at press time. ®
