Back in 1974, I sold a Data General Nova computer to a Catholic client who programmed his minicomputer to say "Hail Mary's" for him.

Yo, what about the ancient desktop Pros?
I've been ready to spend up to $9,000US on a new blazing desktop. Since 2014. My old one is too old to update with the new OS. But I'll be damned if I spend big bucks on obsolete hardware and a CPU that's two-generations too old. Yeah, good bye Apple. You schmucks. Great OS if you like riding dinosaur hardware.
Anybody can crack an iPhone, if they have I.C.E. technology
Dear Morons (er, FBI), haven't you ever heard of I.C.E. That's an in-circuit emulator that can crack anything. Stupid judge banboozled by FBI, the same people who couldn't secure millions of federal employees' private information, including security clearance investigations. Man, what could go wrong here?
Want to crack an iPhone? Google "The Morgan Doctrine"
It's your lousy battery life, schmucks!
I know my Galaxy is the first and LAST Samsung product I'll buy. Battery life sucks big time. I unplug from the charger in the morning and check my email over breakfast. You can literally hear the battery sucking wind. I'm at 90% just after morning email check. My wife's iPhone and my iPad live forever on a charge.
Guaranteed Huwei Has Hooks it its Kit
Good grief! Giving Huawei a clean bill of health is letting the fox in the henhouse. Heck, 37 years ago I was putting foolproof back doors into the RSTS timesharing system I had installed in my home and from which I ran my 1978 race for the U.S. Congress. The revelation that NSA put back doors into the firmware on US-manufactured disk controllers ought to be proof enough that any reasonably competent developer can create absolutely undetectable hooks. Somebody (probably multiple somebodies) on Her Majesty's Cyber Security team has been well and truly…bought.
NORKs ought to fund assassination of POTUS, staring Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu
This could be the best-selling DVD of all time…if Sony were smart.
And if the NORKs were smart, they'd fund their own movie of the assassination of Barak Obama, staring Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu.
But neither organization is smart, which goes to show that…drum roll…two dumbs don't make a bright.
I've really been looking forward to this movie!
I thought this was a hilarious premise, snuffing that mental (and otherwise) midget from North Korea, the only world leader who uses his stupidity as a tactical asset. I'm hoping the negative comments are part of a NORK disinformation campaign. Go for it Franco and Rogan! I hope you win an academy award. And Merry Christmas Kim Jong-un.
The sure-fire bet is when people say something can't be done, it sure as hell will be accomplished by some entrepreneur in a garage. Personally, my bet is on fuel cell technology. Besides, I remember one of Larry Ellison's favorite stories: "When I want someone to work in Oracle kernel development, I get the top of the class at MIT. When I want someone to work on applications, I get the top of the class at U.C. Davis. And when I want someone to run the mail room, I get the top of the class at Stanford." Net net, a Stanford PhD doesn't carry a lot of credibility with me.
SDIs Give Akamai Nightmares
Check out the billboard run in the Miami airport all October. Turns out, SDIs have obsoleted CDNs, the bread-and-butter cash cow of Akamai. As Akamai's customers arrived in Miami at the annual EDGE conference, a billboard greeted 100% of them. Red claw marks on a black wall, with nothing but the words "We Give Akamai Nightmares . COM" as text. Yes, there is a practical use for SDIs, and it's going to significantly change the balance of power in the delivery of Internet content. My question: How the heck did Mr. Potts "grok" this reality from publicly available information? IMHO, a brilliant analysis of technological data exhaust.
If Shagbook has the…staying power…they will prevail
My friend once had a product called "PodFitness" that combined workout tutorials with your own playlist. Apple went after him, and rather than defend it he abandoned the name and came up with another. Then Apple decided not to try to own "Pod" stuff. I predict that…awh geeze, forgive the double entendre…if shagbook has the, uh, staying power, they will prevail.
Anybody game for legalizing CYBER PRIVATEERS?
While I'm not a UK resident and cannot initiate a petition, I just wondering if any of you Brits want to initiate a petition to see if you can get 100,000 signatures to:
1) Abrogate the Paris Declaration of 1856 that outlaws privateering;
2) License and bond CYBER PRIVATEERS; and
3) Demand that the cyber privateers follow THE CODE outlined at www.cyberprivateer.com?
This is…The Morgan Doctrine
Supply chain EPROM virus, as reported by the Register in 2003
The Register's March 10, 2003 story on how the Baghdad air defense system was brought down by a virus hidden in a printer's EPROM (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2003/03/10/one_printer_one_virus_one/) might be a clue that more is at work here than meets the eye.
There are cases where banks and governments are fair game
Any "Robin Hoods" out there might consider certain banks and government treasuries to be fair game for some social engineering. But ya gotta follow the Cyber Privateer Code of Conduct (www.cyberprivateer.com). I elaborate: http://www.themorgandoctrine.com/2011/06/when-banks-and-governments-are-fair.html
I look forward to analyzing the code
I've done a virus report card on Zeus/SpyEye vs Stuxnet vs The Perfect Virus that my someday-legal cyber privateers will use to loot the bad guys' bank accounts. I can't wait to get my hands on the Zeus source code and do a deep dive. Then I can upgrade my analysis on The Morgan Doctrine blog. Good news.
