I've looked at Nabu but I really don't see any value in it for me. I can get the same functionality from my smartphone if I want it, and I don't really.
I'm often an early adopter of technology, but I'm not interested in this type of product until it's far more unobtrusive and obvious. I can perhaps see a time when having a HUD built into my glasses might be useful, and sure there are times when I wish I could snap a picture of something more quickly than I can by pulling out my phone, but I'm not about to pay $1500 for what amounts to a barely beta product. I won't even go into my concerns about all the data Google already gets from us.
This one day sale stunt is just that, a stunt. They are testing the waters and trying to stimulate demand.
I guess I'm just lucky I have diverse skills. Sure I work in IT security and love to code and all things computer related, but I also know how to hunt and fish and various other stone age level survival skills.
WOW, bad spelling and typos. I chalk that up to the beers I am drinking
Seriously though, it's not as big a deal as it's being made out to be. Yes it caused a security scramble, and rightly so. No, the sky is not falling.
I think you completely missed my point. The hand wringing is useless. Fix it, mitigate it, and try to move on. Any damage that has been done is one. All that cane be done now is to patch and mitigate. All the wrangling going on on the 'net is amusing. The past can't be changed. We can learn from it and move on. There are plenty of ways to stop the bleeding. People are acting like the sky is falling. It's truly sad that you're one of them.
Nope. I am a senior engineer for an IT security firm. I fix this shit for a living, thank you.
That is why part of the remediation process is new certs. I didn't say it wasn't a pain in the ass, but it's trivial with regards to the amount of work involved.
I didn't say it wasn't a pain in the ass. It's just easy to fix.
It's amusing how much talk is going on about this. Patching the vulnerability is trivial. All of the major IPS and IDS products out there already have signatures published to remediate it for organizations who for whatever reason can't patch. This is getting silly.
If I could tell that to your work I would, because that's the result of bad management and nothing else. There's been ample time to plan upgrades. I feel for you, but I would suggest you start looking for a new job if the place you work for is so poorly managed.
Nice straw man. Thirty two bit software runs fine on 64 bit OSes these days for the most part. You're comparing apples and rocks, not even apples and oranges.
Everyone knew long ago that end of support was coming. Most of the enterprises that I consult for have already finished or started migrations to Windows 7. Some have gone to 8.1, but most are moving to 7.
XP has been around for a long, long time. It's time to move on.
What a stupid article. Beer is hardly the best source of antioxidants. Blueberries would be a far better choice.
"Eat antioxidants to prevent cancer"
Except beer makes an excellent marinade for meats and can be incorporated into BBQ sauce as well.
The throwing of fecal matter is optional. That's the beauty of open source; it allows the user to have a choice.
