Facebook, Oracle, Microsoft, Apple: The Joke's On You

Consider these alternative viewpoints on the IT world's top news stories, straight from InformationWeek's Valley View Web show.

Just about once a month, for our Valley View live Web TV show, I sit down to examine the news, take one cynical pill, one smart-ass elixir, and write a few ... alternative takes on the news: rants, unfair swipes, nearly libelous asides. Call it a monologue for Valley View. You can watch it in the video embedded below.

Some of the items I've taken potshots at this time include the stumblings of Facebook (and an in-the-works Ryan Seacrest TV show built around Draw Something), Apple's hilarious opening to its Worldwide Developer Conference, vendor customer conferences in general, Microsoft's new Surface tablet, Larry Ellison's purchase of Hawaiian island Lanai, and a few more tidbits.

Fritz Nelson is the editorial director for InformationWeek and the Executive Producer of TechWebTV. Fritz writes about startups and established companies alike, but likes to exploit multiple forms of media into his writing.
