re: Rackspace Cuts Network Bandwidth, Storage Prices
I must say that I love cloud pricing, where cuts in the 30%+ range are common. Even better is that you can buy/rent cloud resources for pocket change. For example, 8.5 cents per GB of Google storage and a penny for 10,000 transactions on Microsoft's CDN. Most amazing is the reference above to 10,000 HTTP requests on Amazon's CloudFront for three-quarters of a cent. When was the last time you could get 10,000 of anything for under a penny?

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
