    Post 3 in this mini-series giving you the information from the Capita LA Event... and up this time; a bit of history of the SIMS Learning Gateway product with where it's headed. Incidentally at this point - this is probably the worst product name! It is NOT - never has been, never will be, was never supposed to be - a Learning Gateway. Nor was it ever going to be a replacement for SIMS.net! I did have some great discussions with Phil Neal and new product manager Ben Jones about this.

    Dell has spent the last five years trying to shrug off its image as a beige box shifter with a significant push into the enterprise. Michael Dell even said, "Dell is not a PC company". Now the firm is moving further away from its tin box roots by buying Wyse, a company that's well known for its thin-client
