What do you mean no impact on productivity? I was actually able to do some work without being constantly distracted.

"Whilst many may not shed any tears for people working for the cartels, it'll only make the job of law enforcement harder."
Most people in Central and South America hardly have a choice.
When they come knocking on your door and "offer" you a job what are you going to do? Turn them down or pack and leave? If you decide to leave where exactly are you going to go?
And how exactly Microsoft's status has been changed?
I don't care about stock prices. As far as I'm concerned Microsoft had one of the worst years in history. A couple of big Azure outages, few weeks ago a widespread MFA malfunction. Windows 10 updates anyone? 1809?
2018 was actually the year I finally booted the last Microsoft product from my home.
Combining government "vision" with NHS dinosaur project management, lack of skill and knowledge you will get, well, in best case scenario nothing. In worst case, complete chaos which will hit the whole country.
The private "consultants", with average rates of £300/day will gladly pick those projects up.
I've worked in the NHS long enough to know how this works.
I started to listen to DAB about 10 years ago and I really enjoyed it but the service failed to expand in a reasonable manner. What made it worse was when BBC Radio 6 sacked Bruce Dickinson. Bruce effin Dickinson! You don't sack the lead singer of Iron Maiden. No, no.
Ditched DAB and moved permanently to internet in 2014. I can listen to anything I want and pretty much anywhere I want.
Lots of ignorant comments here and the article itself is not far behind.
I'm not a religious person and I never read the Bible but the current Pope is quite decent. Some (most even) his opinions, essays and talks he gives are very smart and often don't even contain any religious preaching. Interesting, enjoyable, easy to listen and the issues he speaks about are relevant with to modern times. If only people took off their a**hats for few minutes and listened and perceived him as an inteligent man instead of someone who, in theory, is stuck few hundred years back.
"They need us more than we need them, don't forget we are the most attractive country in europe for tech."
Where were you last year when HSBC laid off 500+ IT personel in Sheffield and decided to move most of it to Europe and the rest to India?
Where were you when BBC announced a deal with Accenture who will outsource a lot of their IT to Europe?
The sales are increasing yet people still can't wait for Tesla to collapse and Musk to fail. As if it will give them a great joy to say "I told you so".
Creating an automotive company from virtual zero in this age is incredibly difficult, nevermind challenging existing carmakers and most importantly consumers and their backward thinking.
Being a former domain admin at one of the NHS organizations I can tell you this is not going to fly. HSCIC is too small to have big enough influence and local NHS Trusts and hospitals don't realize how important the security is. It is taking them ages to approve something and when they approve it it's already outdated. Not to mention the non-existing budgets on IT training for IT employees.
