Comment Is "GDrive" equivalent? (Score 1) 330

Anyone out there using Google Drive instead of this or Dropbox and can comment on how well that works? Maybe I'm confused or thinking about years ago but I seems to recall it wanting to change MS Office files to be opened with Google Docs instead and other things that seemed to modify the files. I'd be interested to hear otherwise.

Um... The use of Microsoft TMG/ISA for Outlook Web Access publishing is pretty out of date. And that use was usually limited to only that one use; as a proxy for Exchange. Although ISA had web-proxy capability that was VERY rarely utilized. So basically if you have a TMG, 9 times out of 10 that has nothing to do with capturing end-user web traffic. There are plenty of other products that do do that. Websense is an industry leader that can be integrated with Cisco networking gear for example. Paul

Well that is not such as easy argument as you make it out to be. There has indeed been controversy about medical research based on the "work" done in Nazi concentration camps. The ethical debate about that isn't as easy as you make it out to be here. You make arguments that are internally inconsistent but which justify you getting products that lawfully should be paid for by deciding how to interpret your objection to those laws. Again I'd ask "Explain how your actions are distinguishable from someone trying to get away without paying for these copyrighted products?"

If I thought something was the product of an unethical system like slavery I wouldn't find a way to get a copy of it so I could enjoy it. Your arguments don't make sense except as an excuse for you to download/pirate things. If you TRULY thought the system of copyright was unethical you wouldn't participate in that market.

First of all before this post you kept saying "real property" which was quite confusing and I couldn't see the connection http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_property So you disagree with copyright infringement laws? Explain again how your actions are distinguishable from someone trying to get away without paying for these copyrighted products?

Wasn't attempting a personal attack.. I really don't see how you can go from "that's not ethical" to deciding it is ethical to then take that for free. Would you go from deciding that property ownership isn't ethical to then going into stores and stealing their goods? or would you instead decide to try to do without those things?
