Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Updated The Register's request for information as to the identity of the Iridium executive known to the company only by the mysterious moniker 'suit2.jpg' has already proved fruitful. One reader, Mat Simpson, sent us proof that the Mr Suit2 does exist, lurking hidden deep within the ailing satellite mobile phone company's Web site. Here's the picture: Suit2.jpg But who is he? We suspect it may be ex-CEO Ed Staiano, now departed from the company and, as a non-person, awaiting to be airbrushed out of the Iridium Party Manifesto. Updated And, indeed, that's who it appears to be, as another reader, who also probed deeply into the Iridium directory structure, discovered. Curiously, also missing is the ellusive "suit4", who turns out to be Marco Sentinelli, once VP of marketing and distribution. Suit4.jpg The reader in question was rather keen that his name should appear be plugged by The Register. Fellow Sun Microsystems oppos will no doubt know Steve Ferris already -- and will presumably treat this blatant attempt to grab 15 minutes of fame with the contempt it deserves. Still, thanks for the pic, Steve. Plaudits too to James Forrester, for his rather natty Prisoner parody: "Who are you?" "I am the new suit number two" "Who is number one?" "You are suit number four..." We'd just like to add that at this point, suit4.jpg, CFO Leo Mondale, gets swallowed by a huge inflated condom and is carted off to Silicon Village... ®
