Don't knock passion
Linus is a man of passion, a man through whom we have the best operating system on the planet.
I employ coders and techies. In the most part, they're lazy and cut corners unless you let them know exactly how bad it will get if they screw up. There's no excuse for sloppiness or laziness, and in an environment where so many systems rely on robust, well tested, well thought out and well written code, Everything from your laptop to nuclear power stations rely on gatekeepers who look after the quality that is produced by the varied bunch of programmers who, lets face it, are everything from quiet geniuses to unwashed pillocks who should not be allowed to code a pong game...
Politeness has its place, of course, but if someone produces sh*t they should expect sh*t in return... that's life, deal with it, improve your code and whine less, and everyone will be happy!
I love both!
Some people have a toolbox with a few tools in it and 'make do', personally my toolbox is full of the right tool for the right job, and I personally think E-readers are the right tool for the job of leisure reading.
I read on my iPad sometimes, I read on my Nexus4 (occasionally), but the best experience for me (by far) for ebooks is my Kindle paperwhite.
Why? because it's lightweight, good battery and the ambient light levels are pretty much irrelevant! It's also much cheaper to replace, so travelling with a Kindle is definitely a good option. It's horses for courses, but I'm glad I bought my Kindle, and if it was stolen/destroyed, I'd buy another one tomorrow.
The answer is obvious...
The problem is the software and protocols used for the transactions.
Highly secure software should be used to communicate with the banks, using secure communications protocols (perhaps even NEW protocols devised specifically for banking) NOT - repeat NOT - a browser.... banks have taken the cheap approach to allowing access to their systems and the resultant issues are predictable.
I work for cyber command
Damn, I'd love to be able to use that line.
Is this a new trend?
