We have several stories of interest this week: IBM's forthcoming Power7 chip and the company's upgrade path for Power 570 and 595 servers; Twitter's plans for a geolocation API; and a cloud-based microblogging enterprise collaboration suite that's both secure and free. We hope your interests take you to all these places.
