The article presents several views from the readers and bloggers regarding the U.S. computer industry's smartest and dumbest moves in 2007. One discusses Google's OpenSocial application programming interface (API) and Android phone operating system as a clever and smart move. Google has become one of the companies people look to determine where the industry is heading. VMware initial public offering (IPO) was also considered as the smartest move. According to Joel Snyder, senior vice partner at OpusOne and a Network World tester,VMware is just smart and right on target time. On the other hand, funding of social networks is considered as one of the dumbest because of its uncertain network security.
