Johnson relishing clash of ‘two footballing sides’

first_imgThe head coach has been preparing his side as they take on the Swans at the Liberty Stadium tomorrow (August 25th, 3pm).Swansea were relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, in a division where they proved themselves as a quick, possession-based side.It’s a model Johnson uses in BS3 and he believes fans will be treated to seeing two footballing sides go head to head in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture.”It’s going to be a difficult game, like all Championship games, but one we feel will suit us,” the City head coach told bcfc.co.uk”Swansea are a good footballing side and we think we are a good footballing side as well and we are looking to go there and implement ourselves and our style on them.”We will be buoyed by a big travelling crowd and the beamback as well so even though they won’t be there in person, the fans will be there in spirit.”That’s important as well because we continue to want to make a very good impression, particularly the new players and this is a new team and they need support. That’s why Tuesday night (3-0 win v QPR) was so fantastic because the crowd were exceptional.”I think we’re confident, I think we remain confident in the way we play. Of course we have got players coming back now and I feel we’re getting stronger.”Among those are striker Famara Diédhiou who becomes available for selection for the first time this season against Blackburn Rovers next Saturday. Centre-back Nathan Baker may return for the trip down the M4 to Swansea.WATCH: PRE-SWANSEA CITY AWAY PRESS CONFERENCElast_img read more

McGregor: Goal against Rangers was pinnacle of my career

first_imgCeltic midfielder Callum McGregor says his goal against Rangers in Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final has been the pinnacle of his career so far.The 23-year-old says it was an incredible feeling when the ball hit the back of the net at Hampden on Sunday and says having been at the club since he was nine, he loved playing on such a big occasion.He said: “It was great, the manager has been praising me quite highly over the last few weeks so it is great to go out and play like that on such a big occasion.“It was massive for me, I have been at this club since I was nine years old, you dream of those days at Hampden in semi-finals and finals and scoring against Rangers it just doesn’t get any better than that. McGregor says he expects a more difficult game against Rangers when they play on Saturday but says if Celtic focus on their job they can get a result at Ibrox.He said: “It will be a different game, at their place as well, it is always harder and get on the ball and play especially after the result on Sunday, they will be up for it.“We just have to look after our game, and go there and get a positive result.”McGregor also admitted he would love to turn out for his country against rivals England in June, but says he has to focus on his own performances if he wants to get a call up from Gordon Strachan in the summer.He said: “It would be massive, Scotland v England is a massive game so for me I just need to keep focusing on what I am doing at Celtic and hopefully try and perform in some more big games and see what happens come the end of the season.“If you get the call to play for your country that takes priority over everything so I would definitely be delighted if that call came.” “I’ve been here since I was nine and that moment when the ball hit the back of the net it was unbelievable.“Everybody in the squad this year has been outstanding and it is hard to get in and stay in with so many talented players.“The way we have been getting results after results it has been difficult when you have been out of the team to get back in.“It is great I have been playing so much and Sunday was the pinnacle to score that goal was excellent.”last_img read more

Can Tim Cook Escape the Ghost of Steve Jobs?

first_imgAt every public appearance by Tim Cook – say, Wednesday’s on-stage interview at AllThingsD’s annual D10 conference, or the upcoming WWDC keynote – commentators see the specter of Steve Jobs looming behind Apple’s new CEO. It’s no wonder. Jobs was larger than life, and the force of his personality can still be felt nine months after his death. The soft-spoken Cook is far less charismatic. Is he doomed to labor forever in his predecessor’s shadow? What could Cook do to escape the ghost of Jobs?The answer is simple: He’s already well on his way. The idea that Tim Cook is a haunted man, trying to live up to the legacy of Jobs, is absurd. He’s his own man, his own CEO, and Apple today is doing better than it ever was under Jobs’s leadership.This proposition isn’t subjective. Look at Apple’s stock value, which is up 55% since Steve Jobs’ death on October 5th, 2011. That stock has been buoyed by Apple’s two strongest and best-selling products ever, the iPhone 4S and the new iPad – products that were launched under Cook’s watch, not Jobs’. Wall Street has a lot more confidence in Apple under Cook than under Jobs.Investor uncertainty was partly a result of Jobs’ chronic health issues. But a bigger part was Wall Street’s distrust of the fabled reality distortion field. While Jobs successfully saved Apple from the brink of ruin upon his return to the company in 1997, his cult of personality was such that, to most outside observers, it seemed as though the company itself was hopped up on Steve juice. In other words, Apple was a junkie, and the moment Steve wasn’t around to inject another hit, the company was going to crash. That’s not a healthy situation, and to this day, investors continue to undervalue Apple’s stock.Cook has proven that assumption to be false. Apple in the post-Jobs era isn’t in decline. It’s ascendant.Some will say this is because Jobs, on his death bed, was personally involved in laying a roadmap for everything Apple is currently doing. The iPhone 4S and new iPad, they will say, were Steve’s babies, not Cook’s. To say this, though, ignores a simple fact: Apple isn’t as huge as it is today simply because of its well-designed products. Apple is the largest and most profitable tech company on Earth because it can design these magical products and then manufacture and ship them out on a massive scale without compromise and at unheard-of profit margins. That’s Tim Cook’s design. That’s his product. That’s his “one more thing.” And that’s why he’s the CEO Apple needs right now. It’s not enough to design products that everyone wants to own. You also need to get them into as many hands as possible. Steve Jobs was great at distilling products to their essence and making people covet them, but Apple could not be what it is today without Tim Cook’s genius: his ability to get millions upon millions of devices built in total secrecy and then into the hands that want them. When the new iPad launched and lines didn’t snake around the block, many saw proof that Apple had lost its mojo. The truth was far simpler: Cook is such a maestro at what he does that almost everyone who wanted a new iPad on the day it came out was able to walk into a store and buy one.The truth is that Steve Jobs’ greatest strength was nurturing talent and excellence. He didn’t think of himself as irreplaceable. He set up internal universities at Apple aimed at training the next generation of executives to think more like him. He didn’t believe that his way of thinking was unique. He thought it was something anyone could do. “Once you discover one simple fact, and that is everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you,” Jobs once said during his wilderness years, “and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use – once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”Jobs’ goal was not to be indispensable to Apple. His goal was to replicate his DNA and to inject it into Apple’s, so that if he ever left the company, it would not be diminished, as it was when he was forced out in 1985. Before he died, Steve Jobs cloned himself. Apple is now Steve Jobs’ brain, and Tim Cook is the cerebral cortex of that brain, making sure that the organism as a totality – from the cerebellum of Cupertino down to the limbs of Apple’s supply chain – works as a unit. Cook doesn’t need to live up to his predecessor’s legacy. That’s something the whole company fulfills, with Tim Cook – Steve’s chosen successor – at its core.John Brownlee is deputy editor of Cult of Mac.

Remembering the Mini – The end of an era

first_imgA moment of silence for the miniI suppose I need clarify of which mini I speak.  It isn’t the car and it is not the skirt .The mini I refer to is that mid-sized server that runs the applications that your company depends on.  There are quite a few flavors in this class, from the classic VAX with Cutler’s first child VMS ( moment of silence), to the Unix family – all those AIX boxes running on power processors, the Solaris bunch running on various flavors of Sparc, and HPUX on PA-RISC and Itanium.It is the twilight for the mini server.  Of course, like an Alaska summer, twilight may last a really long time.My rationale for this position has to do with the size of the enterprise IT problem, and the capacity of the server.background: In the past there have been “tiers of servers” at the “low” end we have all those “x86” boxes running variants of Windows and Linux.  In the middle we have the class above, and at the high end mission critical level there have been mainframes, Superdomes, Non-Stop, and other run the world systems.   Application demand has also grown, but the individual application growth has not matched the growth in server capacity.  The middle class is being squeezed.  Just check those TPC and Spec numbers vs SparcWhat has changed:The performance of the Xeon – Xeon base x86 servers have eclipsed the performance of the “mini” architecturesThe X86 OS is ready for prime time – Companies can run their largest applications on Xeon platforms with Windows orLinuxXeon Virtualization – Virtualization allows IT managers to fully utilize powerful hardware, and optimize their data centerGrid solutions – Grids and clouds provide near limitless scale with Xeon platforms, without the need for monster SMP solutionsLead Platform – The primary development, and first release, platform for many ERP and Database providers has shifted to Xeonexample – 1n 2002 A large company payrol system, that I worked on, required a 16 way mini platform to meet service levels – all data processed in less than 7 hours.  Today that same application fits easily into a four processor Xeon platform.  By this time next year it should fit easily into a two socket Xeon box.  The motivation for a “Mini” servers in this environment has vanished.Almost every enterprise application today runs best on a Xeon processor based server.   Customers building out new capacity are optimizing on a Xeon based, virtualized architecture.   For web servers, data base applications, and ERP systems , Xeon based servers provide great price performance and phenominal performance.If there is a soft spot in your heart for the mini, take a few minutes, visit the data center, and spend some lquality time while you still can.last_img read more
