Who is watching the cloud data anyway?

Computer-maker Dell Inc struck a deal on Monday to buy data storage company EMC Corp for $67 billion, setting a record in the technology industry, as it tries to transform itself into a giant in the fast-growing market for managing and storing corporate data.

The acquisition, the year’s third-largest in all sectors, highlights the frenzy of dealmaking sweeping the economy, as big or mature companies take advantage of low interest rates to buy rivals as a way to spur growth.

The deal should help privately held Dell, the world’s No. 3 computer maker, diversify from a stagnant consumer PC market and give it greater scale in the more profitable and faster-growing market for cloud-based data services.

That desire to reach beyond PCs – whose growth has been stopped in its tracks with the rise of mobile devices – echoes moves by Dell’s big rivals. Hewlett-Packard Co, the No. 2 PC maker, is splitting off its computer and printer unit this year to focus on the corporate data business. IBM Corp sold its PC unit a decade ago.

    Been scouring the internet for a house all day, Fallon, NV looks good, VA medical there, fast internet, groceries, lots of flat streets to ride my bicycle on and jets, lots of jets, Fallon Naval Airstation is there.
    I don’t have much money to work with so many angles need to be considered, qualification, finding something, logistics for dragging my crap 130 miles, moving is always a PITA.
    #18 for me so far, at least it is affordable in NV, this place is NUTZ!

        MajorMoves, 7th from one into another State.
        If that means anything beside itchy feet.

        I do not like renting, renting drives me bonkers so real estate is a better move financially for me both as an investment and a roof over my head.
        The downside is doing your own repairs, I know how to do all that already, even have a few spare appliances laying around not to mention a butt-lode of tools.

      It’s probably for the best to get a house that already has everything. Expensive and time-consuming, prepping empty land to live on. Hope you can find something that’s not in a neighborhood. You need a place, kind of like where we live. Rural. Neighbors, but not on top of each other.

    Doctor’s appointment for Bob today, so I dropped him there and did the grocery shopping, then picked him up. Off toward home but to Stockbridge first to drop off scrips and to pick up some movies at the the video store. Tuesday is dollar day.

    That’s about it. Oh, Pete came over in the morning and did us a favor by taking the new car up to the dealer for its free check-up. Good, I would have died if I had to do that.
