Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

There were tears on Thursday as Net luminary and myopic visionary Dr Stuart M Lynn handed over power of ICANN to successor Paul Twomey in Rio de Janeiro.

But the terrible wrench felt by this notoriously sensitive man must have been tempered slightly by the retirement gift presented to him by his colleagues.

The big question is: What do you give the man who had everything?

What else but an Apple iPod.

Yes, Mr Lynn has always been an Apple fan anyway, carrying his Powerbook everywhere with him, but now he has the ultimate toy - a portable music system that can contain dozens of albums.

Mr Lynn will now no longer need an excuse to explain why he hasn't listened to a word anyone has said - he'll be too busy listening to Blue's new album.

We wish him all the best on his retirement and hope his successor follows suit soon.
