So that should include people who work for the government, defense contractors, and people who pay taxes? How about senators and congressman? Everyone has a conflict of interest when it comes to the government that is why everyone gets to vote.
The witness server is required for automatic failover. The witness can run SQL Server Express which does not require a license. Standard edition will work fine for this and the mirror server does not require a license.
The good thing about AD supported applications is the developer makes money if people actually use the application (not buy it). This should encourage better applications and improvements over time to encourage users to keep using the application.
I remember listening to the wall over and over in high school on a cassette tape. I was excited when CDs came out and I bought the wall because I could finally tell when each song actually ended.
Firefox on Android supports NTLM authentication with websites which the built in web browser does not support. This is required to connect to some of my companies internal sites which are setup to use NTLM authentication.
No - I believe you have to root the phone to do WiFi tethering. But USB tethering is good enough for me and I can use Connectify to setup my Laptop as a hot spot If I need to.

Dell has remained silent on the solid-state disk front since announcing a 32GB solid-state option for its Latitude D420 and D629 ATG notebook computers earlier this year. Now, Alienware seems to be telling users to bypass hybrid drives all together. 'Hybrid we consider to be a Band-Aid approach to solid state," said Marc Diana, Alienware's product marketing manager "Solid state pretty much puts hybrid in an obsolete class right now."'"

Steve Ballmer has admitted that earlier sales forecasts were 'overly aggressive,' but at least there is some good news for Microsoft: early Office 2007 sales were very strong compared to the early sales of Office 2003, despite almost no advertising or marketing until the retail launch at the end of January."
