MSPs: Time to Collect Unpaid Invoices
Joe Panettieri writes about some concerns that MSPs are having in today’s economic times.

“More and more small businesses aren’t paying their monthly service fees to MSPs, the MSPs, in turn, are late paying for SaaS services from the MSP software provider, (and) the SaaS provider is working hard to offer extended payment options to the MSPs – but the MSPs aren’t holding up their end of the bargain because they don’t know how to “collect” from their end-customers. Generally speaking, MSPs continue to weather the economic storm better than traditional break-fix folks. But this ‘myth’ that MSPs are recession proof and riding high during the recession has to end.”

As Snow Leopard Lurks, OS X Leopard Goes 10.5.8

MG Siegler writes about Apple’s OS X Leopard OS.

“Apple has just pushed out the newest update to its OS X Leopard (10.5) operating system, with 10.5.8. This could potentially be the last Leopard update we see before Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) is released to the public sometime in the next couple of months. The new OS seems to be getting more buzz for its price (29.99) than its features. The emphasis with Snow Leopard is optimizing Leopard, to make OS X run smoother and faster.”
