I agree completely that the solution is going to be complex, and must be resilient, secure etc.
We are realistically talking about millions, or maybe tens of millions of pounds - but absolutely not hundreds of millions. This is yet another complete piss take at the tax payer's expense.
Never even heard of Belden before.
Tripwire Enterprise is an over-priced, bloated pig of an application that tends to get foisted on organisations just because Gartner or whoever say it's 'best of breed', without any consideration being given to more manageable alternatives... let's hope Belden don't make it even crapper...
"Have there been any attacks on the tube recently?"
Well, no - but neither have there been any alien invasions or incidences of cheddar mutating into flesh devouring monsters. Ah, the NSA & GCHQ's excessive snooping *must* be the reason then!
I'd say it's significantly more probable that there just aren't many people who want to go round blowing things up, or indeed have the ability to do so.
BTW, I have a rock that keeps away tigers for sale - you interested in buying? It's always worked for me so far!
Well, OK, "the keyboard and mouse in the living room"?
One of the great things about PC gaming is the superior controllers - the keyboard and mouse. These allow for more precise and complex interactions than console controllers.
But how do these comfortably fit into a living room environment?
I completely agree, it's not any different for phone tech.
But it is different for Apple products.
Apple products don't sell purely (or, it could be argued, even mainly) because of performance, features and functionality - they also sell based on hype. It gets harder and harder to create that hype, even amongst the hardcore fanbois, when there is less and less noticable difference between each new version.
You've never tried recruiting anyone from India then?
At least 90% of the CVs that land on my desk - from organisations like Capgemini and InfoSys - are utter lies.
You read a CV that appears to be a perfect candidate, with 7 years experience working on .NET projects, but upon interviewing it very quickly becomes apparent that they haven't got a clue.
Gah, I hail from the North, and can confirm these abominations exist, and can be found in many a chipper!
As if it needed confirming, I can confirm that they really are as vile as the sound. They are normally the '10 for a £1' out of Iceland variety, and taste of cardboard made soggy with ungodly quantities of grease.
