Why stop at a high spec laptop?
Have a mid spec i5 laptop or 2-in-1 that is light-weight for working on the road and an Intel Serial Bus 4 connected beast unit with a second processor that can co-operate.
From a business use case, you then could have a ratio of beast units to standard units that staff can simply dock into place and it automatically uprates the work that you are trying to do.
When my wife appealed a PIP rejection, they went to her ophthalmic team for her last assessment results.
They did not believe the ophthalmic certification of being blind because the assessor claimed there was maintained eye contact throughout.
My wife has severe nystagmus - her eyes never (and I mean never) stop flicking. The fact that she could not even see the assessor was the other kicker.
Fast forward 15 months; won at tribunal within 20 minutes.
It's not just in techies either.
People can be promoted to strict rules orientated industries who then simply make up their own rules to go over the rules framework and wonder why people are aggressive about it.
Because the original rules were more likely NOT to kill a thousand people in a masterstroke.
Unfortunately, the requirement to ensure data is accurate does not apply to all.
Take for example one of the large original banks. Two years after moving into our house and sending back numerous demands for cash - which you could see through the flimsy envelope - we exercised our right phone the bank, talk to their Business Banking department, advise them that their customer had moved out previous and read the account number and address through the address window of the envelope.
Despite threatening to call the police on us as we had breached data protection, over the next few months us getting a knock from collection agents and us proving to them and the bank that we now own the house; as it was a business-to-business loan, the bank was under no obligation to keep its details up to date and said it would keep sending letters and bailiffs.
I walked into their local branch with the letter, to their open plan business banking section and discussed the situation with one of their managers, in full earshot of all their customers. Their manager even got the same response from their own B-2-B banking team.
So no, the data protection principles on data accuracy do not apply to some call centres....
(This started sounding like a rant at ibmalone, it is not and merely a story to the contrary of the point of data accuracy)
Even as recently as 2008, a German train manufacturer was supplying UK train operators with a train running Windows 95.
...and that had connections to the outside world; investigatory quality data downloads were pulled using flash drives that then connected to a standard laptop.
I am suspicious that it will have changed as they now have remote access.
my husband and I just spent 20 minutes at 3am trying to disable the alarm
Some people continue to surprise me.
As a nice-to-have add on, completely love the idea of IoT running things; as a sole need-to-have, God help us!
I admit to having a few rooms wired up with smart lights and Nest, but I made sure I still have an actual light switch on the wall as well as a thermostat!
.... how did the criminal remove the data?
Skelton was a senior auditor, according to the BBC article at the time of his sentencing, which would suggest to the outsider that the person has responsibilities beyond that of a standard office bod.
If he was just able to post it to Dropbox then yes there might be a case, but if the company took reasonable steps then you won't stop someone who has a determined grudge.
The mega goods corp working with the mega retailer corp? That can only smell like bad news.
I don't think you will be talking to your box of Bold 3, I think you will be having a conversation with it.
All seriousness aside though; a washing machine where you load a cartridge of powder, and it re-orders when it is getting low and calls out an Amazon Maintenance Expert when it feels ill?....
I bet it's answer would be that it is using the retailers information instead of yours in order to create that particular element of the profile.
It will then argue that as it is a business-2-business arrangement with the retailer, you must complain about the retailer, or something.
