Another exciting day at Wimbledon yesterday left some good British interest in the tournament, but not such good news for our Aussie foes.

According to the Times, “It was Australia whitewash day” with no Aussie in the second round of the Gentlemen’s single tournament for the first time since 1938!

Britain on the other hand had one of it’s best ever modern era days with 2 men through (Murray and James Ward), whilst 3 ladies made the second round (Heather Watson, Anne Koethavong and Elena Baltacha). In fact today, Heather has made the 3rd round, being the first British lady to do this in 10 years!

I guess the Union Jacks will all start coming out now. Is it realistic to think that we might actually enjoy our first winner since Virginia Wade back in 1977, which was the Queen’s silver jubilee year? Unlikely, but we all thought that England could win Euro 2012 only 3 days ago!

On the technology front today, I read a report in CIO that claims that Cloud downtime has cost more than 45 million since 2007!

Their research is based on press reports of cloud outages at services like Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and Paypal, among others over the last 5 years. I wonder how many people have lost their jobs either at these companies or at the end user organisations because of these?

Google today have announced Jelly Bean, the latest version of it’s android system software. The article from the BBC reveals that 400 million Android devices have now been activated, which is four times as many as last year, which is a clear indication that Android is certainly start to gather pace on the apparently IOS dominated tablet and mobile space. I wonder how long before those Apple followers start changing aliance?
