Re: Is it me?
You must be kidding. Most banks offer below 1% on savings; those accounts that offer 2% are capped with respect to the amount of cash one can deposit.
If sold to an oil sheik, Russian oligarch or premiership footballer, then cheap at half the price. What other way is there to extract money from these people so as to ensure that funds spread downwards through society?
When individuals horde their wealth, we all become poorer as a consequence. I say double the price.
What gets me is that, here we have an individual that chose to work in the security industry within both the CIA and NSA and yet is concerned by both organisations activities even though both are known for what they are.

Unless there is a cast iron commercial agreement stating that software vendor X will support hardware vendor Y's chip set, isn't it up to X to decide what platforms its software will run on?

"The government has convinced the CESG, which sets security standards in government, to address this issue with a statement saying open source as a category is no more or less secure than closed proprietary software."
What makes you believe that CESG thinks *any* software is secure? All this says is that CESG will apply the same rigorous standards irrespective of where the software originates, it says nothing in favour of open source derived software.

Re: Look on the bright side
FB makes... hmm, nothing. It's an vehicle for *advertising*. I have no intention of sharing my private details just so that i can be targeted by commercial organisations.
Apple, Microsoft and Intel *all* make real products, something FB doesn't .
Never heard of it..
So Google found the page that offers you the chance to APPLY for a position. You can rest assured that even if you used Google to find this page, it will be of little help once you're asked to demonstrate your abilities.
I really do not see what all the fuss is about.
