Comment This is a stupid attack (Score 1) 204

Why should an entity reveal its capabilites setting up such attack bringing himself too much in the public light and without any monetary profit. It may backfire by getting the authorities, and even other ddos attacks users, on his trail and by triggering the search and implementation of technical and regulatory measures to reduce or eliminate the means he uses for the attack. The entity behind this does attack may have just triggered a Barbara Streisand attack.

A better strategy would be first to send probes to at least partially terraform mars to make it more viable for human life. When the conditions are bearable enough for human life then send the first humans there.

Comment IBM? What is IBM? (Score 1) 273

One generation more of tech people and if you ask them who is IBM they will have go search in Wikipedia to know what that company is or was in the future. How could a company lost brand name so fast. Now instead of having IBM stores (and app stores) have only Apple stores. Apple shows that hardware is profitable not only in profits but also in brand recognition. What is not profitable is bad management. Fortunately HP realized it before too late.

Also try to navigate IBM support web pages is a nightmare. Cannot find anything. The quality of information for IBM acquired software is terrible: Rational, telelogic, etc. Better let the former company support team manage support.

When company profits depends n shedding people, it takes not long until it goes toast.
