OPhone? This could be a tipping point...

"China Mobile is planning to roll out a series of smartphones that operate on Android, the operating system promoted by Google. Android is an open-source OS, leading China Mobile to dub its phones using the software OPhones. Another important difference between China Mobile's offering and Apple's: Lots of companies will make the OPhone."

Asymptomatic Carriers...Most Linux and MAC users blindly propogate malicious code that can effect Windows users globally...these "more inteligent" users ignore their responsibility to immunize the data which pass through their domain! Does it make sense to cull that miniscule goup which have the potential to infect a part of the largest OS platform on earth, or is it realistic to eliminate the largest group so the tiniest can claim the majority? Blah, blah, blah...at issue is not the platform but the habits and behaviors of its user(s). All actions online, regardless of platform in this digital age have consequences, the question is; before you click, what are you willing to risk?

"Hacked Web sites, spam carrying malware, it's almost all meant for little old you and your Windows PC. Even with constant patching and added security programs, you're always going to be in danger of having your PC hijacked."

This Act limits the United States from keeping some of the best and brightest (most of whom were educated in our universities) and doesn't address or allows with a blind eye, the simple, uneducated illegal alien laborers who "do the jobs Americans don't want...Very concerning, what about our need for insourcing?

Ah, maybe a better pro-active direction to network security...unfortunitly, it's still a backward looking "Blacklist" approach with some other stuff. I still believe the IT experience has taught the industry that "Whitelisting" is the only real approach to network security that truely works!

"Regardless of the economy, consumers are still shopping. They're just not buying as much. Brick-and-mortar retailers and online sellers alike are noticing an increase in abandoned shopping carts and cold feet at checkout lines. For physical shops, this means more work putting things back on the shelves. Etailers are working on new marketing approaches to convince customers to reclaim abandoned carts."
