We at InfoWorld.com like to think that our coverage of the news and trends shaping the enterprise technology world is the best in the business. But not even InfoWorld (not to mention our competitors) can connect all the dots as they're forming — the welter of news and the fast pace of events sometimes makes that difficult. That's why we've revisited the sea of dots to make those connections that weren't evident at first.
[ Slideshow: 2007's top underreported tech stories ]
Application development? Java is becoming the new Cobol. Hardware and networking? A new generation of blade servers is moving into the small-to-medium market, and end-to-end Ethernet has finally arrived. We’ve looked at security issues and found that you need to worry more about Mac malware and less about e-mail attachments. And don’t neglect the changes in the open source business model (they could cost you money) and the surprising news about the importation of foreign workers to Silicon Valley.
We think you’ll find these stories surprising, interesting and above all, useful. Have a great 2008.
