Comment Re:Windows Phone (Score 1) 189

I have a 640XL. Win10 upgrade was crap; drained battery twice as fast, SMS is a mess, sluggish response. This past weekend, got a BITLOCKER blue screen and had to re-image it. Went back to 8.1. I should have never upgraded it.

I'm using my other Win10 (one I take for traveling) and seriously thinking of ditching my Windows phones. In all my years with an iPhone, never had it crash on me. Just hate spending $1000 on an unlocked phone though.

Windows 10 Mobile is such a mess. I wouldn't recommend it at all. It feels like Windows 3.11 in an era of OS/2, MacOS, and AmigaOS.

Absolutely. Cisco has not kept up with the times. The Smartnet and overall licensing costs are ridiculous. There have been a lot of places that were Cisco only who have started replacing the 29xx series switches or 65xx series concentrators to much cheaper alternatives. In fact, I'm working on a proposal for a client to do just that and get quotes from other vendors to replace their core gear from Cisco to something else.

Ah, from the TFA:

What's more, Reddit suggests that Atlantic is targeting the wrong website. "Notably, Atlantic has failed to describe its efforts, if any, to obtain such information from Dropfile.to, the website to which the song was uploaded," Reddit's brief said. It also said that "a petition for pre-action discovery should be granted only if a petitioner demonstrates that he has a meritorious cause of action and the information sought is material and necessary to an existing and actionable wrong."

At least someone at Reddit is on the ball.

The people in Mumbai won't have the security clearance to access the data in the first place.

They do tend to have the ability to manage the credentials to grant you access to the applications that consume the data. I've seen this approach leave massive holes in healthcare and outsourcing; where there are stipulations about keeping data in the country.

The GP's point is that physical storage/location is only one piece of the puzzle. Separation of duty as you describe is another, regular audits and monitoring, management of encryption keys, securing the network paths (there a lot of hops that bounce back and forth between the US and Canada), etc
