Quick thoughts for the day

  1. Read a rumor today that the upcoming Apple tablet might be called the iPad. I predicted it would be called the MacBook Tablet but I have to admit the iPad sounds compelling. It's too close to iPod for me to like however. Rule one in marketing: Differentiate. My guess is that Apple is registering names of possible similar named products to avoid future problems.
  2. I will be presenting "Your Applications from Backdoors: How to Secure Your Business Critical Applications from Time Bombs, Backdoors & Data" at the OWASP Chicago meeting on Feb 2nd at 6:00 swing by (RSVP Req'd) for Pizza, Beer and Application Security discussions in the windy city.
