It's Leo all over again.
When Leo came out, they'd develop a business system by understanding how it worked and make a bespoke system.
Naturally businesses caught onto this and started to develop systems that were bog standard and quoted low prices that caused the client to accept software that wasn't made for them and their business suffered.
History is doomed to repeat itself if you're ignoring it....
So why do we get so many Battery PR releases claiming the Earth?
For decades now we have Anode or Cathode inventors or both claiming impressive charge densities but still no sign of them on the market?
Can we get a ban on battery PR for the next ten years?
Sounds like a start in the right direction.
It's a well known tactic used by Lawyers.
If you have a unreasonable statement in a contract, you can deliberately leave it in and hope the other party doesn't spot it.
If you wish to break a contract, you simply raise the statement and the judge rules the whole contract null and void.
Not usual for it to be so obvious though....
I'm a keen LibreOffice user and I've donated money to the organisation a few times.
When I visit Home users on IT jobs, Office365 often becomes a subject of conversation.
It seems a lot of people with Office365 can share the suite. Seemingly up to 5 shares are allowed?
So getting it free is a big temptation I guess.
How do you trust your chosen VPN?
I've yet to see any VPN provider who has a security certificate issued by a reputable company.
They say they don't keep logs. But at least one was caught with logs recently.
A reputable security company making surprised visits would go a long way towards trust...
Reminded me of a battle I had when I worked at Maplin. Next door was PC World. Customer came to me to get a cable for their desktop PC as instructed by the PCWorld person.
I told the customer that such a cable didn't exist. So back to PCWorld he went for further instructions.
He came back with a piece of paper and once more I said, such a cable didn't exist.
This exchange went on about 6 times. Until I feeling pity for him went with him into PCWorld and looked at his PC myself.
I saw immediately that PCWorld technician was inventing cables. You can't get a 6 pin graphics card power cable to ATX 24 pin main board adapter. I of course sold the customer the correct PSU cable....
Made a change from telling the customer to refund their £90 HDMI cable from PCWorld and buy a £6 from us instead.
