No, they don't send any such thing.
Unfortunately nobody keeps Spamhaus in check, that's why they've become a degenerate network abuse source. Their DBL shows them for what they are now, something the rest of the Internet needs to shun.
Their director of security "reassured" customers Adboe's source code wasn't stolen? You want to know why Adobe's got problems that never end, that tells you everything you need to know about Adobe's attitude about security right there. The guy in charge of security doesn't even know what that word means.
"Desktop support" isn't really about desktops. DUH. It's about users, who won't be going anywhere, and will continue to need to have their hands held for even the most trivial of things.
Maybe "the cloud" will make Gartner go away. The Cloud can do anything right?
This is only news to the extent that Microsoft had a dumb policy that allowed such purchases to begin with. Imagine instead the headline read "Oracle bars employees from using company funds to buy DB2 or SAP." You'd think it was pretty dumb that they ever allowed that. This is the same thing.

The original "app stores" for Linux are its package repos.
The public wants an alternative to Facebook. Google+, as especially revealed by their "real names" policy is trying to be Facebook. G+ just is not filling any need of those who are unhappy with Facebook, let alone those who are happy.
Zagat's former CTO was quite a Microsoft enthusiast. Wonder what Google's going to do with that pile of stuff.
The screen you can't touch is about the only thing seriously threatened by touch screens. And for some cases the pointing device (mouse/trackpad/etc.)
The herd instinct among economists makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
