AJAX: old wine in an old bottle
Ever since Microsoft pioneered XMLHttpRequest, people have been using it in their web applications; Outlook Web Access, for example.
It is one thing for slime ball consultants to sell an old-wine-in-an-old-bottle-with-a-new-label to buzzword compliant CIOs and IT managers, willing to jump on bandwagons and be taken for a ride. But for web influentials to take this absurd idea and run with it, is simply alarming. To quote Mugatu, doesn't anybody notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!
