Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Is Windows 10 a HIPAA Violation Waiting to Happen?

sconeu writes: Given Windows 10's notoriety for phoning home, should it be used in medical offices?

My SO is an orthodontist, and is looking at upgrading her office computers. Unfortunately, many of the applications her office uses are Windows only. She asked me for advice about new computers, and the first thing I told her was get Windows 7 (or if necessary 8), but to stay away from 10.

When the inevitable HIPAA lawsuit comes, will the DOJ come down on MS for this, or just on the doctors (who are usually unaware of this issue)?

Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Best pay-as-you-go plan for text and voice only? 1

sconeu writes: My wife uses an assistive communciation device. She wants to use it for SMS texting... We currently have Verizon, so we don't have a SIM. The computer will take a SIM. I'm looking for a pay-as-you-go plan where I can take the SIM from a cheap phone and put it in her computer. Any suggestions?
