Re: Chinese manufacturing
Which is why they've been investing so heavily in Africa. When the cheap labor at home dries up, they'll build out new factories (they've already started) in Africa where they can continue to pay nearly nothing for labor.

I'm not making up anything - and I didn't say anything about a medical device.
Nobody said anything about Windows automatically updating drivers.
Unexpected input may or may not be thoroughly vetted by the device manufacturer.
I've seen all manner of items running Windows under the covers that could result in someone's death due to a malfunction. Starting with the control stations for heavy machinery in factories.
What isn't an edge case? What war is the US actually going to engage in nowadays against another nation which requires that kind of support? Any nation willing to fight is likely going to result in full scale nuclear war.
The only battles the US is fighting are exactly like ISIS/Al Qaeda. Traditional warfare between nations is done with, because the firepower available is too great.
Define bigger risk. The Chinese have proven they have absolutely no issues wholesale stealing your technology then selling it in their own market with no regard for copyright/trademark/patent law. The US, while they may want to find something to blackmail you with, won't be destroying your business by stealing your technology.
If I'm concerned with hiding something illegal I'm doing, sure, Huawei is great. If I'm concerned with having a profitable business, give me Cisco and a backdoor from the NSA all day long. If I'm a government concerned about state secrets I wouldn't touch either one.
So Waze can remove the "report a cop" and replace it with "report an overturned pork truck". Do they think removing the ability to report cops is going to cause this functionality to disappear? I think it's time we're allowed, as citizens, to sue the individuals responsible for this frivolous lawsuit. They're wasting MY taxpayer dollars. And I sure as hell didn't give them permission to do so.
No, Sony's problem is the same it's always been. They let their "media" division dictate what everyone else can or can't do. Sony has throughout the years made brilliant hardware after brilliant hardware, only to cripple it with some back asswards DRM to "prevent piracy" at the expense of user experience. They spent so many years alienating their customers, that it's tough to win any of them back. I literally don't care if Sony produces the greatest Android phone ever created. After their XCP rootkit debacle, I won't be buying anything from them for a LONGGGG time.
That's patently false. Improving your connection to whatever the nearest pop Netflix is located in would in no way be preferring them. Nobody is saying to dedicate a cross-connect to Netflix. They use Level3 and Cogent, there's no possible way that if you ran to whatever pop they're in, you wouldn't also be improving your connection to countless other providers. Basically every non-mega-internet-corp in the world has a blend that includes Level3 or Cogent in their mix and you know it.
Oracle can't just rebadge other people's hardware for two reasons:
1. They already burned their bridges with HDS and LSI (now NetApp) when they terminated their OEm relationships.
2. They spent hundreds of millions of dollars on Pillar. They aren't going to just bail on the technology. I mean... they could, but Larry might finally be shown the door if they did, when all his shareholders realized he was just bailing out his personal bank account.
The 32pin interface cable isn't a standard, it's an Apple proprietary interface.
Apple did NOT use USB first, your're completely off your rocker. They weren't even on the standards committee for it being invented. Apple tried to get everyone to use firewire, which was shunned by the rest of the industry, and eventually gave in to USB.
You can't transfer video over the lightning doc at all. USB has 0 issues transferring both.
Troll sufficiently fed.
Just because you don't know what's running FreeBSD doesn't mean that it's got a minimal install. As a result of the fact you don't have to share the code people don't have to tell you if they're using it or not. And they never have to give anything back.
Off the top of my head - NetApp and EMC Isilon are both based off of FreeBSD. Kace which Dell now owns, and JunOS by Juniper.
Configuration rules for a FAS6280 and a FAS6280 in an HA environment
Maximum system capacity (in TB)
Note: Disk drive capacity listed is the largest shipping disk drive supported on the date of the last update to this page. 4320
With the current shipping 3TB drives it's 3.4PB. When 4TB drives are released, or with a v-series, it goes up to 4.3.
