Windows and Nook Sitting in a Tree

Via Washington Post:

Microsoft will make a $300 million investment in the subsidiary for an approximately 17.6 percent stake. Barnes & Noble will own about 82.4 percent of the subsidiary, which has yet to be named. The companies say the subsidiary will help to speed the transition to e-reading. Barnes & Noble sells the Nook e-reader. The Nook app will make Barnes & Noble’s catalog of e-books, magazines and newspapers available to Windows customers.

Guess the Microsoft – Barnes & Noble lawsuits are history?

Meeting Strategy

At Hunch, we don’t have meetings unless absolutely necessary. When I used to have meetings, though, this is how I would do it: There would be an agenda distributed before the meeting. Everybody would stand. At the beginning of the meeting, everyone would drink 16 ounces of water. We would discuss everything on the agenda, make all the decisions that needed to be made, and the meeting would be over when the first person had to go to the bathroom.

Skydrive – Firing on all cylinders

Do I really have to read multiple pages to understand my storage limits? Why do other people’s files count against my storage limit? Why does my upload speed slow down? Why do I get gobs of free storage but have to pay to sync my desktop files?
