first_imgIt is now official – Garth Brooks will not play Ireland this year.Garth will NOT play Croker and that’s official!There had been a small glimmer of hope for Donegal music fans that the country singer would be able to play his five gigs at Croke Park.But he said he is crushed and broken-hearted after receiving news that Dublin City Council CANNOT change their earlier ruling to allow all five shows. The singer issued a lengthy statement tonight after talks to hammer out a deal on the Croke Park fiasco ended without agreement.Mr Brooks said: “I have always been advised to NEVER send a message in “the moment.”“It is said it is best to take a walk, wait awhile, and think about it. “With that said, I just received the news the Irish council cannot change their earlier ruling to not allow the licenses for all five shows.“To say I am crushed is an understatement. All I see is my mother’s face and I hear her voice.“She always said things happen for a reason and for the right reason.“As hard as I try, I cannot see the light on this one. So it is with a broken heart, I announce the ticket refunds for the event will go as posted by TicketMaster.”Despite the embarrassing series of events, the country star thanked the Irish authorities “for going the distance for all of us who wanted to share songs and dance together.”The 52-year-old said: ” I really want to thank all the people around the world that continued to think good thoughts that this would actually happen. “Most of all, to Peter Aiken and those 400,000 people who believed enough to go through what they have been through to get to this point…I love you, always have, always will.“I encourage any and all of them that can come see the show, at some point around the world, to bring your Irish flags and waive them proudly at the concerts. I will be looking for you.…garth.”Aiken Promotions tonight issued a statement saying: “We regret to announce that despite pursuing all possible solutions, the 5 concert Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event at Croke Park is cancelled.

This Week in Microsoft News: New Clues In the Novell Patent Mystery and More

first_imgThese thee Microsoft stories weren’t the biggest news of the week, but they are worth knowing about if you missed them. One of the stories is merely a clue into an ongoing mystery surrounding Microsoft’s acquisition of some patents from Novell that have analysts speculating and open source advocates worrying. Each story sheds a little light on Microsoft’s strategy and where the company is headed. For example, the release of Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 indicates how Microsoft is consolidating various enterprise management tools into a single interface.Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 ReleasedMicrosoft released a commercial version its Forefront Endpoint Protection software this week. It’s now available from Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center. IT managers can now deploy, configure, manage, update, and report on FEP protections using System Center Configuration Manager 2007.The significance of this is that Microsoft is now firmly in the software security business as the space converges. Earlier this year, Intel purchased McAfee in an attempt to bring security software closer to hardware.Microsoft Wasn’t Alone In Purchasing Those 882 Novell PatentsFlorian Muller discovered the companies behind CPTN Holdings, the members of mysterious organization that purchased 882 patents from Novell when Attachmate bought Novell last month. It turns out that CPTN consists of Microsoft, Apple, EMC, and Oracle.What patents these companies bought remains a mystery.Rumor: Oracle and Microsoft in Bidding War for AutonomyBritish tabloid Daily Mail “reported” that Oracle and Microsoft are in a bidding war for enterprise analytics company Autonomy. We suggest taking this rumor with a grain of salt. But if true, this could be interesting as Arik Hesseldahl writes for All Things Digital:On its face this rumor is interesting because now that the battle to roll up the data storage firms is largely resolved following Dell’s acquisition of Compellent, one of the next dealmaking battle fronts for the large IT vendors is going to be software that makes managing data in all its various forms easier, more powerful and less costly.This could signal more consolidation in the business analytics field, something we talked about when IBM purchased Netezza last fall.
