Anytime a company name is used in the same sentence with "new vulnerabilities discovered" is also not good for said company.

True, but it's amazingly easy to deal with that by adding the phrase "But they have a history of fixing vulnerabilities quickly whenever they are discovered." Unfortunately, Oracle can't seem to do this.

It's not just that. It's that there are so many different systems out there, and even with standards for treatment and diagnosis codes getting systems to talk to each other can be a major challenge. Frequently, even between different departments in the same hospital, you'll find different systems. You'll see care givers re-entering the same information into each one.

It doesn't matter. Most of the time, the hardware manufacturers don't print the rated speeds on the cables (and usually don't even print the standard - USB 2.0, USB 3.0, etc.). They just use their own marketing lingo that generally has no bearing on the standard whatsoever. It's difficult (at best) to compare apples-to-apples when buying a simple USB cable.
