Ovum: Handling of Gaming traffic a bigger challenge than video?!

Gaming represents the new frontier of real-time cloud services. It will be more challenging than video because its interactive nature means predictive estimation strategies cannot be used: a standard-definition stream in gaming requires three times the bandwidth of a comparable resolution stream in video.

Investment Watchlist

Langsam wird mir die momentane Aktienmarkt Rally unheimlich. Zwar schauen die fundamentalen Daten schon wieder besser aus und den Boden dürften wir mittlerweile erreicht haben, dennoch bin ich recht skeptisch was die Geschwindigkeit des Aufschwungs anbelangt. Ich denke wir werden einige Rückschläge in der Q4 Earnings Seasons sehen.
Momentan bin ich noch investiert, überlege aber mittlerweile jeden Tag Kasse zu machen. Was kommt danach? Ich tendiere dazu mal etwas spekulativer zu investieren. Ganz oben auf meiner Liste stehen daher Level3 und Infinera. Auf Adobe habe ich auch noch Auge geworfen, wobei dass ein solider Wert ist.

Powerpoint Online – SlideRocket

I’m pretty impressed what possible nowadays with browser based online services like Google Docs or Sliderocket.

Just two weeks ago, I thought that Google Docs is only a simple online version of “Notepad”, that isn’t appropriate to seriously create and manage documents. After playing around with it and testing it on a daily base, i have to admit, that i changed my mind. Google Docs is a formidable competitor to the Microsoft Office Suite. For the majority of the people, who are using just max. 5% of the features of Microsoft Word or Powerpiont, those web-based services are becoming a real alternative – and they are available for free.

You should check the SlideRocket Demo to get an impression what’s possible online.
