Re: It will be a cold day in hell...

"Only if your time has no value".

Because my (free/work) time is valuable to me, I stopped supporting my friends and colleagues personal computers/laptops with Microsoft Windows installed. If they want a desktop and support its Linux or nothing. You have no idea how many are converted...with enterprise grade support from me...

EU

"Smith notes that the prior ruling has also been protested by the EU, whose Commissioner for Justice says “it bypasses existing formal procedures that are agreed between the EU and the US” and that it “may be in breach of international law” ".

And what did the EU and the Commisioner in particular? "Blá blá blá blá"... no sanctions whatsoever or real and practical measures...

Re: *MY* network? Not really.

My recommendations go well over the entire aspects of the business because, well, that's my job. But if I'm asked about the idea of certain people (finantial, HR...) becoming local admins in their windows boxes, for example (just because they need that important software callled iTunes be available), should I simply say yes and aceept the "compromise"? I have responsability over the security and stability of the network and everything related with it. The everything "writen" it's because boards and bosses love to have a scapegoat whenever is needed.

Re: *MY* network? Not really.

"I hope you continue to work well in your job, and that your honesty doesn't cause you to fail in any future job interviews. I'd certainly mark you down if you gave that sort of answer to me."

I would never give that kind of answer but I'm really assured that *every* recommendation I give is writen and all the people in the board are awere of it. If they decided they know better how to manage the IT department, in the end I have something to recall them of it and say "Told you so..." .

"It may well be *my* network, but I am really just custodian of it for the people who matter. The security changes I'm implementing are done with the consent of my users, after informing/consulting as appropriate."

Consent?? You dont deal directly with the beancounters do you? They are "IT masters!"...

Informing? Yes, that's correct.

I have little hope that small players/startups could have access to that nice millions...but Europe can have good alternatives to the american offers. And with lower operation costs, like installing the datacenters in Scandinavia or in the Baltic. The Baltic countries are a good place since they can buy cheap electricity from Ukraine and help the later strengh their economy.

To *any* person is, take photos of the other person or no photos allowed at all. It's a shame have to give this advice of course, but there are to many immature people out there. But having photos in your possession maybe it would work as a good deterrent.

How much is Microsoft earning from its Android taxes again?

JahBless
Bronze badge

Humm

"We’ve known for years that Microsoft makes more money from Google’s Android than Google does itself"

There is multiple ways to see it. OS license sales maybe, but Google sales tablets and smartphones with a profit, not to mention the ad revenues. But as for hardware sales, we can also say that Google makes more money from their hardware operation than Microsoft will ever made :-P.

As for the other Android makers, HTC and Sony are a strange case. HTC makes great hardware but hit by lawsuits, bad management decisions and alienating their most loyal costumers by not updating flagships models were to much. If they colaborated more with outside developers they could have done better.

Sony...they do colaborate with external developers (freexperia, fxp) but releasing a barrage of high-end models every 6(?) months it's crazy, makes any costumer staying always in doubt when and what to buy. Why Samsung has a great success with the Notes? Software...

Just a note: I've been thinking about how one of the android makers could get away from Google and even if I'm of the opinion that it looks almost impossible for now, Samung, with their deep pockets maybe have a chance. A partnership with a cloud player (Akamai for example), a share of that 19bn that they spend in marketing to lure developers and revamp the hog that is TouchWiz, who knows?

Dear Andrew, you are plainly and utterly wrong, as for the other makers that is, but trully right about Apple.

Samsung will make bendable displays, be assured of that. And if Google kick their buts off, they will revamp their software, there are so many ways to do it...

Easy. Just set up a user login (not canary of course :-P), and only use it to send an harmless email like "meeting at 8pm". Or even better, just use that login to sign in and sign out into a dormant server. The server in turn will email the 3 person. Done.

Educate the public

My experiments on educating my friends and fellow works showed me that only the ones that really appreciate their privacy where interested in my advices. For the rest it was something like:

"so, you dont mind that someone from the law agencies read your emails, listen to your conversations,etc,etc?"

"of course not, I don't have anything to hide!"

"but that's the point, why spying on you if you are a good citizen?"

"thats to find criminals and terrorists and paedos!"

"but you are not none of these...*sigh*...ok, so, if you dont have nothing to hide, can I access your email? As a good friend of yours I'm concerned that you one day can kill yourself"

"no"

"I see...so, you mind that me, your best mate, who you know would never do anything against you, have access to your email, but care nothing if some dude, because wears a government badge, access it at his/her will?"

Re: Somewhere along the line PEOPLE get involved

"then there will be a home-grown skills shortage that will thoroughly stifle tech progress in China."

Each year China have new graduates in the thousands, do you really think there will be a shortage?

"Why? Because the first thing an IT grad/professional in China does on gaining a few years experience is start scouring the global job market for opportunities. "

You are making assumptions from a non.Chinese perspective, you are not considering how patriots they are for example. And Im not aware of any trend about hiring Chinese graduates in the West.
