  • Tesla Motors (TSLA +0.5%) makes an appearance on a brand perception poll conducted by Consumer Reports, checking in at number ten on the list. It's a good sign for the automaker that even though the company is a bit of a political hot potato - on issues of quality, safety, performance, and design it's registering solid marks with consumers. [View news story]
    What are these "political hot potatoes" you're referring to? Do you have examples/references to issues of quality, safety, performance or design other than they're all spectacular? I'm honestly curious as to the author's source on these "issues" as I'm long on TSLA.

    Paulo - it is a long-term play and Amazon is investing to be one of THE few places a consumer calls home for most of what they do online (shopping, entertainment, etc).

  • A slew of tech companies (major names include IBM, Cisco, EMC, Red Hat, and SAP) are giving their support to TOSCA, a new standard aimed at allowing enterprises to migrate cloud apps without being locked in to the solutions of a single vendor. As Julie Bort notes, market behemoths (I, II) Amazon (AMZN) and Microsoft (MSFT) are conspicuously absent from TOSCA's list of supporters, as is Google.  [View news story]
    The reason they are absent is Amazon and Microsoft both have cloud strategies that leverage unique APIs for a variety of resource services (ie. SQL Azure or S3). It's not as simple as "press a button and migrate" if your application is built around cloud-specific API. Amazon and MS led in Cloud which meant doing things a certain way. Now that there is a competitive field standardization will follow (as it always does in tech).
