I don't disagree but from you?!
I don't disagree with anything in the article but of course a hardware reseller thinks that buying hardware is important, isn't this article just an advertorial?

Companies waste so much time limiting access to the bear minimum. I'm not suggesting everything should be open but broad classes of information should be open to those who need, or might need it. My company has a need-to-know policy for code and it really stifles innovation. If you can't trust someone, don't employ them - once you've employed them then trust them to a reasonable extent with the data that they need or might need.
I disagree, the software makes a massive difference - probably more than each of the others alone once you're beyond a certain baseline. I've just tried video editing over RDP, TeamViewer and Parsec Gaming. The latter is great once each view has loaded but awful for a few moments after you switch to a file manager. Works well for video editing though if you can stay in one application most of the time, latency is tiny.
Actually, if you DO believe that the radiation might damage children's brains (I don't), on top of a school is exactly the right place for a mast. All kids these days use phones and the transmitter by your head is the one you need to worry about more. The transmission power used is varied to be sufficient to get the signal to the mast, so the closer you are, the lower the power. In addition, the mast itself will have a pattern such that the lowest power is downwards and the highest power is aimed in the distance.
Oddly you don't see many tin hat types campaigning for masts on schools though.
I'm assuming the OP was referring to the Americanism of a "Rest Room" being a sensible location for a "Comfort Break" as opposed to a toilet, stall, crapper or whatever where you go for a piss.
However, the whole concept is ridiculous. If you stop people making things easy just because they might get used for bad stuff, you'll prevent every possible kind of progress in the world.
To get the MW3 and MW6 to work, just pair them with the MW3 as the primary node then plug the MW6 to the router. As soon as you turn off the MW3s the MW6 becomes primary. Having said that, when I did this the whole network of them needed restarting once a week or so due to speed dropping down to under 0.2mbps.
No, HMRC are trying to find out how to apply a difficult bit of law. People are still paying less tax by being long term contractors which is what this legislation was trying to stop. Unfortunately, writing legislation is really hard - also shown by the Amazon example above.
What complete nonsense. Why should Microsoft allow IT to stop you buying extra software when almost every other software company in the world would allow a purchase with a credit card? I would be breaking policies by using my company card to buy Adobe Creative Suite for example but I wouldn't expect Adobe to stop me!!!
"Pretty sure you could just ignore the fine... private fines not enforceable... only fines issued by companies on behalf of the council are enforceable I think. But, INAL... so might be talking out my arse."
You are indeed talking out of your posterior. There was a case recently where someone kept ignoring invoices for parking without a ticket in a private car park and in the end the court made them pay the whole lot. As someone who is responsible for a 6 car car park, I'm actually very pleased that these invoices can't just be ignored forever.
Security. The web browser has to be able to stop a rogue script clicking on a "new window" link, but allow the user for example. Once you've done that then there's a way for the website to determine if a click was by a user or not. I'm not saying that's how it's done, but there's no point in hiding the source of a click if there is a way to find it out.
WhatsApp's encryption is message level, not just transport level. Read the whitepaper on how it works. I'm not saying they perform zero analytics in the app but I do believe that individual messages are not readable by Facebook or anyone else. The current benefit for Facebook is the immense value of knowing who communicates with who and how frequently.
