To add to your observations regarding the P-51, it should be noted that its primary adversary were later model Messerschmitt 109s, the superior Focke Wulf 190 never reaching the numbers of production the 109 attained. Hitler had banked all on the 109, expecting a short war decided by quantity more than quality. As a result, the 109's ageing airframe was fitted with ever larger and ever thirstier engines. By late in the war, the 109s which scrambled to meet incoming waves of Allied bombers, escorted by p-51s, had the performance to give the Mustangs a run for their money, but quickly had to go back for more fuel. When the 109 climbed back up to the fray, those same p-51s it had engaged could still be waiting.

In the mixed new category, storms are currently lining up to dump on the region.

How is this the tech industry and not the news media? The media is devising the click bait; Evans is just piling on.

Rambo Tribble writes "The BBC reports that insurers are denying coverage to energy producers because of weak defenses against cyber attack. Lloyd's of London reports a 'huge increase' in demand for such policies, but audits they commissioned found 'protections were inadequate'. To quote Ed Skoudis 'War games' expert, '... it's surprising no big incident has happened given how weak the infrastructure is. It's very hackable.'"
