For gazillions of startups and enterprises using Amazon's cloud for storage, that's the news they got today. As of February 1, Amazon is reducing fees by 12-13%. Usually, a company will reduce prices to attract more business, but that's not the case here. In 2011, Amazon nearly tripled the number of data things stored in S3. At the end 2011, S3 housed 762 billion (762,000,000,000) objects and was processing over 500,000 requests per second for these objects during busy times. At the old rates, the S3 service was already dirt cheap. For instance, computer scientist David Gewirtz writes on ZDnet that he is only billed 11 cents a month. 11 cents! And next month, his bill will go down. Cisco: Cloud Will Soon Handle Most Data Center Workloads There has been no shortage of predictions that the cloud will eventually lead to the demise, or diminished role, of corporate data centers. However, new industry data suggests that cloud computing will soon make data centers even busier places than ever. Cisco just released its first Global Cloud Index, and it has a clear message: it doesn’t matter if you’re using applications from your own data center or from somewhere else, they will be delivered from the cloud. Organization’s data centers will be moving to the cloud in a big way. Global Cloud Index, 3

28 Erasing the Boundaries By DAVID STREITFELD; Nick Bilton and Nicole Perlroth contributed reporting from San Francisco, and Jenna Wortham from New York. The New York Times 13 February 2012 SAN FRANCISCO -- Technology used to be so simple. In the old days, you listened to music on your iPod while exercising. During an idle moment at the office you might use Google on your Microsoft Windows PC to search for the latest celebrity implosion. Maybe you would post an update on Facebook. After dinner, you could watch a DVD from Netflix or sink into a new page-turner that had arrived that day from Amazon. That vision, where every company and every device had its separate role, is so 2011. The biggest tech companies are no longer content simply to enhance part of your day. … The new strategy is to build a device, sell it to consumers and then sell them the content to play on it. Last week's news that Google is preparing its first Google-branded home entertainment device -- a system for streaming music in the house -- might seem far afield for an Internet search and advertising company, but fits solidly into an industry wide goal in which each tech company would like to be all things to all people all day long. ''It's not about brands or devices or platforms anymore,'' said Michael Gartenberg, an analyst at Gartner. ''It's about the ecosystem. The idea is to get consumers tied into that ecosystem as tightly as possible so they and their content are locked into one system.'' So Facebook, which has half of its users accessing it from mobile devices … Apple, once just a computer maker, already gets most of its profit from mobile devices and is eyeing televisions, which would play content from iTunes. Amazon created the Kindle Fire tablet, and there is intense speculation it is developing a Kindle Phone -- … Microsoft, which has tightened its relationship with Nokia to again be a major player in phone software, has placed its Xbox in millions of living rooms as a home entertainment portal. Reports of the new Google device come just as the search giant's $12.5 billion purchase of Motorola Mobility is expected to close, … As an example of how Google will use hardware to push software, Mr. McDevitt, a consultant with CSMG/TMNG, cited Google Wallet, a cellphone payment system released last fall. Google put a lot of work into this software. It had 150,000 retailers deploy near-field communications readers so all a customer would have to do to buy a pack of Juicy Fruit was wave a smartphone. It had Citigroup encourage its MasterCard holders to use Google Wallet as an extension of their credit cards. ''The next new Motorola phone will undoubtedly come preinstalled with the Google Wallet near-field communications chip,'' Mr. McDevitt concluded in a report last fall. ''And where Motorola leads, the other handset manufacturers using Android are likely to follow.''
