Our thanks to a reader (who shall be nameless, but its pretty obvious where he works) for drawing our attention to this posting on the DaniWeb IT discussion blog which reckons there are only 5 tech companies in the world currently making serious money today. They are, in alphabetical order:
• Akamai (apparently they deliver content to MTV & similar interactive websites – no, still none-the-wiser)
• Amazon
• Apple
• Open Text

Yes, Open Text! But no Microsoft, no Google, no SAP. And certainly no LexisNexis nor IRIS.
