... and when it does they will announce a white list that you'll be allowed to access. Admission to the white list will require a charge, of course. This will be trivial at first. In due course it will be increased to create an income stream for the Treasury. That's what this is all about.

Right now I'm going to knock off early so I can go home and play my Moog theremin. This is actually true, even though it's on the internet!
... boo hoo, what will I do?
... Wait a minute, what is that you say, 'They'll make a law compelling me to use it'. Curses, foiled....
I thought the ARM things would be cheaper than the *ahem* industry standard things.

... shirley there must other conference venues that offer just as much fun. I hear Harrogate is nice at this time of year.
 Hookers and drugs, or so I've heard.
Fear not. Gmail doesn't 'see' the dots so you can use 'email@example.com' instead.

... or the Bentonite in your cats litter tray, or the Braziil nuts in the bowl of nuts, or the Bananas ripening on the side, or the fact that you live down wind of a coal fired power station (Radon dontchakno') etc etc....

The AC is correct, it's a massive mistake by Google/Alphabet. Sites not using SSL/TLS shouldn't be 'shamed' like bad cats.

Sorry, I'll get my coat...
Here in the enlightened paradise of the UK that's called 'Going equipped'...
... Suit no. 1 "How much is it going to cost us to kill off this one then?"
Suit no. 2 "Well, the lost revenue from charging less for Xeons will be billions of dollars, but of course, once the ARM servers disappear without trace we'll be able to put the prices back up"
Suit no.1 "That's ok then. Trebles all round"
... the situation will be worse than the US. Enjoy it while it lasts.
I'm STILL narked about the demise of MS FoxPro for Unix/Xenix. I've recently transitioned to Harbour Compiler, but I still miss FoxPro. Bastards.
Good Lord, when did this start?
Yes, a massive lost opportunity. Imagine a windy treeless hillside with a giant sign, the single word 'LEEDS'...
... where the laws of Man supercede the laws of Maths.
It's called 'expert shopping'. A minister, when they don't like what they hear from an expert in the area, will trawl for another expert with an opinion they like. There's always one to be found. Often academics.
...move all the porn site off IPv4. Problem solved!
"1. Do everything you must do, and do it perfectly.
2. Under no circumstances do anything you should not do."
That's just as sound advice as in the article.

It's worse even than that. Not only will IBM/HCL need to offer the whole stack BUT it will have to interact seamlessly with the MS offerings, because of the legacy factor. With MS being able to alter the underpinnings of everything they do at will, nobody will be able to offer seamless integration.
...don't ask me how I know...

I like their pants. Lacy!
I see what you did thar buddah, neatly conflating "takin' down pedos"' with key escrow and whatnot. Lessons from the recent past indicate that's, mostly, not what the access will be used for. In fact one of the uses WILL BE your next door neighbour, who works for The Poh-Lice or tha' Eff Bee Eye and who has taken a dislike to you, because your dog barked at him or your son did sexeh to his teenage daughter, will use access, justified by a tip-off from an anonymous informant, to root though your data, looking for evidence of thought crime. Don't worry though, if you've got nothing to hide you've got nothing to fear...
