...and account details.... and password.... and a few other items of identification....
Not quite as simple as knowing the phone number.
But don't let that get in the way of your hyperbole.
And it's too late baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died
and I can't hide it
And I just can't fake it
But you felt the need to comment because....???????
You must be real fun at all your friends parties.
As many as get pushed to my Android phone thru the google apps.... basically none.
Well, to be fair the UI hasn't changed in that time...........
>Once again, Apple is singled out for an industry wide problem.
Because of the fact Tim Cook stood on a podium and said their maps were "the best" and "the most poweful" maps. THEY were the ones talking it up.
Hoisted by their own petard.
>Not possible.... The world's last Blockbuster is about a mile from here. (hint: I'm not in Austrailia)
Blockbuster is surprisingly still very much in business here in Australia. No idea HOW, but it appears my fellow countrymen still rent physical DVDs.... quite quaint!
They are a computer vendor.
The Surface is a computer, it is sold as a Microsoft device.
USA != The Planet
The F150 isn't a huge seller outside of North America. Ditto with the Taurus which isn't sold in many OS markets.
This is all good in theory, but let's not forget WHY we have ended up here:
The Customer WANTED to have Windows based servers, the customer wanted to have integration on to their business networks using Windows protocols and standards.
DCS vendors for DECADES had their own OS's from the PLC up to the HMI , granted they were not secure, but they didn't need to be as they were not externally accessible, nor could they run anything untoward.
When the customer sees this new OS and can't get the data they want on to the managers desktop without expensive interfaces/hardware they will vote with their wallets and maintain the status quo.
I don't believe this will go anywhere.
SCADA/DCS/ICS Vendors will harden up their systems end-to-end and customers will still go and put VNC on their servers negating any work on the vendors behalf.
