Problems in IBM's midrange

Maybe IBM's troubles are just a blip. Maybe the new Power7 boxes that IBM says have more appeal than their predecessors will finally yield a turnaround, the one that should have become visible during the third quarter. But then again maybe not. Maybe there's something really wrong with IBM's midrange sales effort, and maybe it's more than just the midrange, too, because these days Power Systems overlap X64 servers at the low end and match or possibly exceed IBM mainframes at the very top.
