IBM’s crazy LinuxONE servers pitch open-source to mainstream

First nobody told IBM that servers were meant to be nondescript slabs, and now Big Blue has gone wild with Linux on its new open-source LinuxONE range. The angular behemoths look more like gaming PCs than they do enterprise hardware, but they open the door to what the Linux Foundation is calling its Open Mainframe Project, a push to better place open-source server software in businesses.

Quip adds Chat Rooms to take on Slack

Mobile-first productivity app Quip is entering the chat age. While you could always carry a discussion within the confines of a document, Quip has updated their service to roll in Chat Rooms, which takes the conversation outside of your documents or folders. It’s an interesting move for Quip, which likely sees a bit of an opportunity as other services like Slack snipe users with their enterprise-first approach to chat. The update is rolling out soon to Quip’s Android and iOS apps.

“Gmeet’ may be Google’s new teleconferencing tool

If you work at an office that either has other offices elsewhere or lets employees work form home, you know how crucial teleconferencing can be. It’s also handy for those businesses that have clients or customers spread out across the country or world. It seems Google knows, too, and is readying some sort of teleconferencing tool tentatively named GMeet; likely short for ‘Google Meeting’. Details are sparse, but it might serve as an offshoot of Hangouts, Google’s existing over-the-top communications platform.
