links for 2010-09-27: Benioff fires back at Larry; PostgreSQL vs MySQL Performance; Droid X Dumping

  • Salesforce's Benioff: "Clouds aren't in a box" - A host of great one-liners, a couple of the best:
    • “The cloud is a multi-tenant shared architecture that runs on a pay-as-you-go model,” not a million dollars just to get started.
    • We’re not going to show you computers taller than you. We’re not going to show you a cloud in a box because clouds aren’t in a box. They never were. That’s the whole idea.
  • Database speed tests (mysql and postgresql) - part 1 - It doesn't appear to be tuned much at all, but interesting results nonetheless.  MySQL 5x slower?
  • Why I dumped my Droid - What leading smart phone doesn't have battery issues?
