iPhone Smackdown: TechCrunch's Arrington Versus Forrester's Colony

7/31/2009
I hate to dive into the traffic-trolling antics of TechCrunch's Michael Arrington, but I will (and not just because I'm chasing clicks, too).

7/1/2009
I've just posted a short video about SAP's deal with Jive Software, which lets you embed dynamic analytics widgets inside your blog posts. I mean "dynamic" not in the sense of multicolor whiz-bang (which usually aren't) charts.
