I want whatever you are smoking. No one will lose their job over this because A) It's a government worker B) MIcrosoft is like IBM in government, no one gets fired for picking it.
Anyone who has had to administer BES probably has hate for these stupid little devices. I know I do.
All new aircraft have issues. A380 discovered cracks in the wings and engine problem when it first came out. Just like software, you try and test but some stuff is just not detected until it's deployed into the real world.
Both AT&T and T-Mobile route 112 to 911 for European people who happen to be roaming onto their network. I'm not sure what Verizon and Sprint do but they are much less likely to have foreigners on their systems.
951 is already assigned Area code in United States.
I think it's automation and efficiency. Just like LE used to follow people around all the time watching where they went and such. Thing about that though is it's time consuming and if you were watching for it, you could start to detect it. Now they can attach GPS to your car and now it will just call in where it is at all times. It makes decision "Should we pay someone to following around potential bad guy X?" to extremely easy. "X might be bad guy but hell, GPS is only 2000 dollars and 50 bucks a month we pay to Verizon for cellular data plan, go ahead and put it on his car. We will figure out soon enough"
Same thing with License plate readers. While someone could sit somewhere and write them all down, that person could have messed up, it's expensive, they may not get them all. Now, point cameras everywhere, much cheaper, much more efficient and database storage is cheap, keep all the data forever.
You are obviously not spending enough on money on bribery, I mean "Sales and Entertainment Expenses"
I can. On average, women work less then men and take time off for a family. So in most cases, they are paid less then men because they don't work as much as men. There are many studies that show that women who work the same as men, same hours and experience because they haven't taken any time off work for family, they make same as men.
Actually, reason there are not more woman owned businesses is because women don't want to be in IT because it's truth is, IT is horrible for family people and women tend to be more family oriented then men.
I would imagine this issue is same for IT Business owners. The late night upgrade failures, the weekend crashes, all that contributes to horrible family life. Until that is solved which I'm not sure is possible, then IT will mostly be men or females with no family.
HIPPA does not require that data be passed in encrypted form. It only requires that reasonable effort be made secure it. However, that can be patient data can be transmitted via internal email because it's all Exchange and therefore encrypted over the wire, then in most cases, HIPPA is satisfied.
Email Encryption still has long way to go before it's completely transparent to user.
Because in most cases, Google is mining all those accounts for data and showing ads. In some cases, students may be involved with research that includes confidential data. Google does not provide guarantees that they won't mine/archive or protect that data in accordance with laws/regulations surrounding that data.
That's generally been beef I've seen with Google.
WTF are you downloading that is huge? Biggest game on my iPad is 150MB. My iPhone is about 70MB.
5 Years, try more 15. I know many GPS installations that are 10-15 years old. When I was school in 2002, a friend studying Geology went out into Rockies to install GPS units in mountains to measure drift of tectonic plates. They were replacing GPS Units that had been in place since 1993 and units they were installing had planned service lifetime of 10 years. Many Aircraft GPS Recievers are 10 years old as well and many might remain in place for another couple of years if they are working. In more expensive systems, GPS receiver part is separate from navigation system which generally more modular.
Because you obviously don't understand how Interpol works. Interpol is basically a big forum where various police agencies around the world share warrants, police investigations and the like. When one member country says they have warrants for joe smith, Interpol simply distributes the warrant and information to all other members nations. Interpol doesn't check the warrant or see why it's being issued, they just make a note in Joe Smith record and when it's pulled up by another country custom officers, they just see, so and so has warrant against them issued by another country and details of warrant. It's up to individual country to make determination if they are going to follow the warrant or not. 99.99% of the time, warrants are for stuff that all members countries that are consider illegal. Murder, rape, child related charges, drug traffic offenses.
Because Malaysia is mostly Muslim and they think it's totally cool that Saudi Arabia wants to execute this guy over bashing "the prophet".
Note, when you are fleeing a country for religious reasons, don't flee to another country that is same religion as one you are fleeing from. Double if it's the same state religion. Pick a place that doesn't care like Netherlands or Belgium.
Because average users have issues with it and they are people this proposal are trying to protect.
If any security is going to happen for average user, it must be forced upon them. Otherwise, "it's too hard"
