Gap is betting it will…big. Blog Denimology just posted images of the retailer’s spring/summer denim campaign, which hinges on the bell silhouette. Gap’s executive vice president of global design, Patrick Robinson, told Racked that “the new fit of the season for women’s denim is the wide-leg high-waisted flare.” Putting its money where its mouth is, Gap is offering multiple versions, including a pintucked style with a very high rise.

    People should NOT allow these ougates at Amazon affect their desire to get into Cloud Computing. However, these ougates at Amazon should cause people to examine the viability of Amazon as a Cloud Computing provider for Business Critical applications. I believe that Microsoft (also affected by the lightning strike) and Google should fall under the same scrutiny. All of these vendors (and a few others) have demonstrated their lack of maturity when it comes to running Enterprise-class, Business-critical data centers. In the last two years, we have seen outage after outage that SHOULDN’T have happened: bad Change Management, facility shortcomings that should not exist in Tier 3/4 data centers. And, once the outage occurs, horrific levels of communications with the clients.The cloud computing industry has clearly demonstrated that clients who want the advantages of cloud computing (lower cost, agility, scalability, etc.) need an even higher level of design, architedcture, and engineering than they would for a straightforward in-house solution. I believe that enterprises will shy away from these Public Clouds and turn their focus to Private Clouds, initially internal, subsequently, hybrid internal/external, and eventually, external.
