Apple Schill-er: 'I was shocked - SHOCKED! They went and copied the iPhone'

Re: Pathetic lawsuit

Go look at Nokia phones in the 90s/early 00s. You'll find where Apple got their "inspiration" from . They are not, and never will be, innovators. They are just like Sony, Samsung and the rest - they refine someone else's ideas and sell them as their own. The difference is they have the USPTO on their side (and in their pockets - they get patents for "ideas" that obviously is copied from prior art)

Re: Pathetic lawsuit

Yeah, and Apple didn't copy Nokia (or Lotus Notes) chiclets when they "developed" the iPhone look and feel

Google Drive stalls on LAUNCH DAY

Really?

Since when did Google grant everyone access to a product/service on "launch day"? I went to the site, read the conditions and waited. I didn't go for the online wahmbulance call like some on here. My patience was rewarded with access via Mac, PC and Android devices this morning.

Get over yourself.

Data retention, FOI and the storage budget

Sales Pitch, really?

If I'd wanted a sales pitch I'd have gone to M$.com.

There's a lot more to data retention than cloud storage options. And the issues change with the geography - EU and US data privacy laws are markedly different and can result in alternate strategies having to be used in global organizations. As was mentioned, industry specific guidelines/laws exist but there are roles in most companies that have rules to be followed - financial, HR, and corporate records have different retention needs and these have to be maintained across data storage mediums (Peoplesoft/ JD Edwards vs email & Word/Excel docs) and these are the areas where most companies can get caught out.

Then there's the issue of litigation and eDiscovery - and there areas are dependent on well written/executed data retention plans.

Tethered updates? That's so Apple

Last three or four updates for my phones? OTA, notification when download complete - single restart to implement. Total outage to me? Less than 10 minutes in each case. Android FTW!
