Agreed. I know that if we have a huge file transfer, the network guys immediately know, it's on one of our NOC screens.

New Windows 10 privacy controls: Just a little snooping – or the max

Can you just run Server?

Server OS, as your desktop? Like a 2012R2, or 2016.

I installed 2016 and it looks just like Win10 (gag).

Re: Here’s an idea …

I have my old Nokia 1020 in a drawer, with its awesome camera module, would be great if it could be re-purposed with a newer OS.

I love these articles

I love these articles when they come out. I always try and find the first mention of air-gapped.

And then the argument ensues. LOL. Great entertainment.

Thank you all :)

Forbes?? I don't even bother to try to go to their site anymore. They are dead to me. LOL.

I will open up a couple of sites like my banking or others but, other than that. It's adblock and scriptblock by default everywhere.

I feel great. :)

1020 love

I gave up on Win Phones but if they resurrect the 1020 with better specs, I would be all over it!

Re: Pick your poison

So, they're all our enemy :(

No Kaspersky... I've had the worst time with them the last couple of years. I honestly don't know how they are always rated high in AV tests. It blocked everything and made some machines hang, and of course uninstalling was terrible. ( I guess you can argue that about any of the others? yea our enemies )

Great. Just as I had replaced AVG with TM.

Re: talent upgrade

@Orient

Yeah that seems odd, let's lay off staff that we don't need but we need!

LOL.

Is it possible that since they are growing and got more money, they will hire more experienced or talented staff?

Re: Cluster fakk

LOL Geoff.. .that was a poorly written sentence on my part.

I meant when they were trying to decide between a pc or an Apple box.

I've always leaned towards PCs for my recommendations, but now leaning the other way.

My post was a cluster fakk too, but that's what I meant haha.

Everything about Win10 is crap from privacy to patching.

Why, MS, WHYYYYYY?

I have stopped recommending Win10 to any of my friends/clients.

I never thought I'd tell someone that if they want a MacBook they should get one instead. I've been doing that.

Wow.

Re: "According to Gartner"

Re: Optimistic

Agree. It's not a report, it's marketing.

"According to Gartner"

Lies, lies, and more lies.

Block storage is dead, says ex-HP and Supermicro data bigwig

CrosscutSaw

Yes yes yes...

"The problem is that the data in the cloud is accessible only at WAN speeds. That is fine for the data on your phone or tablet, but unsuitable when you want to run analytic applications on archived records.

In addition, the cost of public cloud storage is deceptive. For your phone or tablet data, it is palatable. When you get into your massive data needs, the cost of retrieving cloud data overwhelms the savings of not keeping the data within the company."

This ^^ I've been telling my counterparts who are infatuated with cloud this cloud that.

You should see the uproar in end users trying to access stuff over the WAN. You can't just tell them to be patient. Also we are beginning to see the price hit as we build more servers in the cloud. The monthly bills are piling up.

Re: Why all the phone hate?

Nope I'm not repeating anything on the internet.... I had a 1020 for at least a year and a half, maybe 2. Before that I had played around with a Sammy Focus. Many apps were just weblinks. Mapping was ugh. A few others like my banking app were not as good as the iOS/Android one, but they did the job.... until they were discontinued. I am not sure what your expectations are, if they are low then I guess it's ok. I had to leave the phone when I needed to use work stuff like vpn, office, rdp, and the Android ones were way better.

I know for a fact if you use a Win phone, you are compromising left and right.

Re: Why all the phone hate?

Yeah but good luck getting any decent apps on it.

Microsoft sabotages own Lumia smartmobe flagship launch

CrosscutSaw

Re: Such a cluster

Granted, it's probably something they could whip up. But the thing is, with the prevalence of mobile phones and their penetration in business, there is plenty of ROI. Meeting apps, MS Office, collaboration, on and on. They just dropped the ball big time.

CrosscutSaw

Such a cluster

I tried to hang on to my Lumia phone as long as I could, and then had enough.

I still get emails from Microsoft here and there, about their Lumia line.

I laugh. I was duped. I really liked the phone.But it screwed me. How hard is it to develop apps?

I guess impossible.

Why would they turn in phones with info

If they had been smarter, they would have wiped their phones before handing them over.

Even if they surprised them in a meeting, they could have "had to go to the bathroom real bad", then poof.
