Incongruous hip-hop/IT industry tie-in #2: I was a wee bit bilious to learn this week that a Dell Kace engineer has recorded a rap song about the joys of system management. For some reason.
Kace, Kace Baby (no prizes for guessing what popular early 90s quasi-rap song it sounds a bit like) bigs up Dell Kace kit through sick rhymes such as: "Going off-site to patch a PC?/ With Kace you can patch it from your hot tub, G!"
The tune also calls out rivals including Symantec and Microsoft. Cold. Any hip-hop lovers who watched with consternation as the east coast-west coast feud reached its zenith 15 years ago will surely be troubled by this development. Watch this space for the mean streets of Silicon Valley to be stained red by some drive-by retaliation.
