It's another episode of our enterprise and consumer tech-cast, hosted by The Dude of enterprise tech, Greg Knieriemen, master of all that is cloud and storage Ed Saipetch and web2.0 playa Sarah Vela.

Our special guest this week is Mark Twomey, also known as Storagezilla.

This week we discuss...

  • EMC World in Vegas is coming up - what to expect...
  • Apple's taxes: The New York Times explains “How Apple Sidesteps Billions in Global Taxes” (it’s not a a European Sex Club trick), apparently “Apple was a pioneer of an accounting technique known as the “Double Irish With a Dutch Sandwich”.
  • Google vs Oracle: Former Sun CEO: Jonathan Schwartz, Sun Founder: Scott McNealy and Java creator James Gosling contradict each other and demonstrate why Sun Microsystems was a disaster.
  • Klouchebag is the rage... this week: Klouchebag is the "Anti-Klout" Twitter influence score based on Anger, Retweet Abuse, Social Apps and English Misuse.
  • The Twitter account of the week is @PinlessPics and the blog of the week is http://textfromdog.tumblr.com.
  • Storagezilla stares down the barrel of our “10 Big Questions”.
