I'm sure the council have already put cash from important social services aside to cover the cost, while making sure T&C's make Sol-Tec pay a late delivery penalty, while SOl-Tec have covered any costs by hiking up their winning bid, to make sure it brings in a nice profit. Everybody wins but the public purse !

Mass resignation, would it hurt Google? Maybe in short term delay projects, while they hire replacements, but plenty of people in India (no racism intended) will happily take the job and not care what happens in China., for those that do go, plenty of secret blacklist floating around tech firms !
Any product be it routers to mobile phones, once they are no longer supported by the manufacurer with updates, should be made unlocked to open sourec alternatives. For too long manufacturers have gotten away with inbuilt obsolescence for perfectly good equipment to make profits and the politicians and watchdogs have turned a blind eye, especially in these days when everybody is banging a drum about not creating more waste !
Maybe time for anybody who messes with BGP, to be isolated from the rest of the network and force all their traffic through a dedicated gateway. Yes hard luck on for arguments sake China/USA/Russia/UK/Iran/India citizens, as it would enable even easier snooping, but the rest of the world would be more secure.

Windows 7 should have been left alone, until W10 had all the old GUI elements replaced, so the GUI is uniform and then a core build should have been released with everything else as bolt on extra from the store, then everybody gets the best of all options, but no Microsft likes to d o half assd jobs and then try and clean up the mess !
Think it's about time that regulations are brought in to force ISP's to refund customers automatically for every 4 hour or part period of time service is down or impeeded, similar to to airline delays, but without so many dodgy get of jail clauses written in to stop them paying up. Then the network may improve, if it hurts their bottom line profits !
Consumer auto-updates is a good thing, is things bork for an extremely small percentage, well thats what backup to the cloud is for right, who wnats millions of zombie machines pushing of spam !
Business, well should never happen, as tehy should be usuing best practice patch testing and central deployment? After all, they have shareholders and profit margins to worry about, don't want big fines for exaple in the financial industry for upacthed holes?
Going to be a lot of dodgy calls from can I say it wihtout being racist, India from so calle WIndows Support saying your files have been zappe dby W10 update, can we remote in and fix. If Microsoft want us to trust them to do updates as and when as a service, they need to cut the BS, accept insider program is not QA tetsing and get their sh!t organised or just give up !
