Since their merger with blue coat things have not been great. But man have they gone down hill after the Broadcom acquisition. We haven’t seen an account rep in 8 months and they had the gall to audit us. Then they wonder why security folks next project is replace anything Symantec branded.
Tavis and Parisa need to talk to your compliance peeps. Just because Blackhills proved you guys had big holes in your GDocs platform you do this? You had a disclosure program people would like you more.
Youtube still can’t fix the hatefulness that suddenly pops up onmy kids feeds . I guess distract people from problems hackers are bad people. Vimeo anyone?
Life cycle of hardware is such that every piece of computer hardware has built in obsolescence, user replaces their hardware every 3-5 years, components don't last longer than this. So you might have decline in PC hardware purchases granted, but it is not because they received a free version of an OS, it's because they selected another technology that fulfills their needs such as a tablet. If a free OS upgrade was the doom of a hardware platform Apple would not sell new MacBooks or iMacs,Mac Airs, etc...they have not charged for new version of OSX in over 5 OS generations, their hardware has obsolescence built in thats how they do this.
Wearables are not where the money is going either, due to an enhanced obsolescence factor where these devices are old news in 3 months after purchase makes it too expensive for the common user even to consider. Wearable devices such as the Apple watch are also failures; they do not successfully replace or improve on the item they are focused on, your wrist tech. They are parasite devices that can't survive or stand on their own, they need to be paired to other smart devices to be functional, are just too expensive and one more darn thing to charge every day. To make wearable attractive at the current price range they need to stand on their own as the all in one device. Yes it needs to make me my espresso too.
