IBM Jumps into Web-Based E-Mail Game

Believe it or not, there are still some Lotus Notes users out there -- lots of them, actually -- and IBM is still an e-mail vendor. Now, it's a vendor with a cloud-based e-mail option for the enterprise, something known as LotusLive iNotes.

The name has it all -- the word "Live," a la Microsoft, two words PutTogether, as has been popular in the industry for a while, and the lower-case "i" before the word "Notes" in what we can only guess is a loving tribute to the iPhone (and a bunch of other Apple stuff). Way to make that new service really stand out, IBM. In other news, we're changing the name of RCPU to the "InformatonWorld ComputerWeek iNewsletter." Not really.
