It’s Oktoberfest in Germany and some of the sexiest–and bustiest!–stars got into the spirit over the weekend, suiting up in the traditional dirndl dress. Showing a public display of affection for Bavarian style, a bright-eyed Katy Perry donned a polka-dot dirndl for an appearance on the German variety show Wetten, dass…? in Munich on Saturday. Kim Kardashian also took her Bavarian beer girl role quite seriously, appropriately accessorizing her custom-made dirndl with pigtails and a pitcher of brew. She even took to her Twitter account to boast, “I love Germany! It’s Vonderful here!” But these A-listers weren’t the first to embrace the look. Two years ago, Salma Hayek donned the low-cut Bavarian dress, and almost exposed a little too much of her enviable assets, nearly missing a serious wardrobe malfunction during a performance on the German variety show. And while each brunette bombshell looked authentic in her dirndl, we can’t decide who wore her traditional dress best. Tell us: Who had the best Oktoberfest dress? Vote below! –Jessie Goldberg

[…] It’s that time of year again. International celebs like Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, and Salma Hayek have all been dressed up in Drindles in Deutschland to celebrate Oktoberfest and promote their various projects in Germany.

Ballmer Won’t Predict Windows Phone 7 Sales

Microsoft CEO says selling phones will be “job one” after new devices launch, but won’t forecast numbers.

Microsoft’s Windows 7 Phone Revealed
Having been recently burned in the mobile market, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is refusing to go out on a limb to predict how many devices based on the Windows Phone 7 operating system will be sold after they hit stores later this year.
“I don’t make forecasts,” said Ballmer, in an interview published Monday in The Wall Street Journal.

Gale Technologies Gale Force is a brand-new system that lets companies manage, provision and deliver cloud services in a web self-service model. It lets users consume cloud resources whenever they need them, using configurable templates.
“It’s partly how many we can get made, it’s partly how much we can—can not only build a great product, but how does the word of mouth work, how effective is the advertising we’ll do?” said Ballmer.

Ballmer also admitted that Microsoft “missed a cycle” in phone development due to R&D and execution problems. Ballmer, however, told the newspaper he’s confident Microsoft can make a comeback in the phone market. “Job one here will be selling a lot of phones, and if we sell a lot of phones, good things are going to happen,” said Ballmer.

Preventing Broken Links During Server OS Migrations
Microsoft’s credibility in phones took a severe hit when it pulled its KIN line from retailers earlier this year amid dismal sales after just several weeks on the market.

The debacle led Microsoft’s board to slash Ballmer’s bonus for the past fiscal year in half, according to financial documents the company filed last week with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Microsoft has confirmed it will formally launch Windows Phone 7 on Oct. 11, at an event in New York City.

Windows Phone 7 devices, from a list of Microsoft partners that includes HP, Samsung, LG, Toshiba, and Sony Ericcson, are expect to go on sale about a month later. AT&T and T-Mobile will reportedly be the U.S. network carriers.

Many observers believe Windows Phone 7 is Microsoft’s last chance to become a significant player in the increasingly important mobile market. Current products, based on the Windows Mobile operating system, have proven to be also-rans against more competitive offerings from Apple, RIM, and newcomer Google, with its Android-powered devices.

RIM, with its Blackberry OS, holds the largest U.S. market share for mobile platforms, with a 39.3% stake as of July 30, according to market watcher Comscore. Apple’s iPhone is second, with a 23.8% share, followed by Google’s 17% share. Microsoft was fourth, with an 11.8% stake.

Developing a server growth strategy that works for both the business and the IT budget is an increasingly complex proposition. Should you splurge for virtualization-class servers and consolidate your data center? Or maintain the status quo and grow your server farm incrementally with entry-level devices?

so he’s reluctant to venture a guess – kinda think that says it all. Steve – it’s the beginning of the end.
