John Oltsik writes about this year’s global IT spending forecasts.

“ESG is in the process of analyzing a mountain of data about 2010 IT spending intentions. It’s a big job as we surveyed 515 mid-market and enterprise organizations in North America and Western Europe, but the data is starting to paint a good picture of what to expect this year. First of all, it appears that IT spending will increase. Just over half of those surveyed said that their organizations will increase IT spending in 2010 as opposed to 43 per cent in 2009. Not an overwhelming change but a statistically signficant change nonetheless.”

The rankings give the companies a gold star for eliminating the most harmful chemicals from their products. The categories listed on the Greenpeace ranking guide are desktops, notebooks, phones and monitors. Apple is the only company to receive a four-star rating. Most companies listed in the chart only received one star – HP picked up two.”

Robin Harris writes about USB 3.0.

“You’ll be hearing a lot about USB 3.0 this year. And well you should, because its potential is vast. But will system vendors step up to the plate to deliver all of USB 3’s goodness? The biggest improvement is performance: it can move over 440 MBytes/sec.”
