Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

We have, so far, pinned our prestigious Vulture badges on only those who deserve it. So we are pleased to announce that in the last 24 hours, there have been three recipients of the pins, which don't get given to anyone. Oh no. Last night we bestowed the pin on Ed Iacobucci, chairman of Citrix, and his charming wife Nancy, in a ceremony at the Old Monk pub in Maddox Street, Mayfair. Ed, the Father of OS/2, proudly sported his pin, as did Nancy. And this morning, we bestowed the Order of the Vulture on Sukh Rayat, general manager of component distributor Flashpoint, for services to the industry. Previous winners of the award include Rana Mainee from AMD, David Lin from Rise, Robert Stead from AMD, and Steve Tobak from Cyrix. They become knights and dames of the Order of the Vulture, through proudly wearing their pins. So far, one Intel representative has received a pin.. ®
