No single publication can cover all your information needs adequately. That's why we link to thousands of external information sources throughout this site. This shortlist of classic computer sites includes high quality vendor independent computer publications which were first published before January 1, 2000. They've stood the test of time. That's why we call them "classics". Generally the sites listed her are "open", competitive and include information from lots of vendors.

Many of these publications existed even before the web and some have been around for a decade or more. As a publisher we've been referring our readers to reference publications like these for over 9 years from our own Sun and storage publications and this is a way of rounding up a very small percentage of our favorites.

We'd like to expand this list, while keeping the same high quality level... Currently, most of these links are biased towards enterprise servers and storage, because those are the only markets we've covered in the past. But your information needs may be a lot wider.

If you publish a vendor independent computer classic site and would like to be considered as an addition to this list, and included in our search-engine and directory then email, include your url, a short profile of the publication, and attach your masthead or logo. (Emails which come from a different domain than the web site will be ignored.)

Squeak! - Animal Brands and Metaphors in the Storage Market
Squeak! - Animal Brands and Metaphors in the Storage Market
Animal marketing metaphors are popular in service industries, but you'd be surprised how many companies have used animals in their marketing of data storage products and services.

The storage market was worth over $150 billion in 2005, and as it gets bigger - more companies will turn to animal brands to help differentiate their otherwise bland products and lend them artificial (or deserving) characters and virtues.

The idea behind this type of marketing is to suggest positive connotations so it's unlikely that anyone will choose to associate their products with gremlins. But you may be surprised by the population of the storage ark.

This reference articles lists all known companies who have furry marketing brands, and also includes some which are slimy, scaly and scary too. the article, Mice in storage
Squeak! - Why are Most Analysts Wrong About Solid State Disks?
read the article - Why are Most Analysts  Wrong About Solid State Disks?
Most analysts and editors of other computer publications don't really understand the solid state disk market. They show their ignorance and naivete by prefacing every discussion of SSDs with a superficial analysis which compares the cost per byte of storage between flash and hard disk drives. That's the wrong answer to the wrong question. And it's far removed from why the SSD market is racing to become a multi billion dollar market seemingly in blithe ignorance of the cost per byte proposition.

This article tells you what's important to users and the main applications in which SSDs are already being used and new applications where they will be used in the next 3 years. the article, Solid State Disks
