People will never be as productive at home as they will be at the office, where the boss is watching.

Institute of Directors survey says most bosses expect no mass return to the office if COVID-19 crisis ever ends
Outage: Faulty UPS at data centre housing London Internet Exchange causes grief for ISPs and telcos alike
Seems UPS's cause more downtime than actual mains power failures do.
Even large global datacentre providers that promote rock solid power, with multiple UPS's, dual supply feeds and automatic static switching, and generator backup are always suffering power outages in their data halls.
More complexity causes more outages, not less.
Australian contact-tracing app leaks telling info and increases chances of third-party tracking, say security folks
Maybe 2 million people use the app, but that means 20 million don't.
Also the 2 million who did install the app probably have no idea what it really does, and think its going to save them by knowing they walked past someone once in the street who had coronavirus, when in fact 99.9999% of the time it wouldn't have a clue if your paths have crossed with someone with the virus, and it certainly won't be notifying you about that, and the only people its really even likely to match you with is one of your family or close friends.
Curse of Boeing continues: Now a telly satellite it built may explode, will be pushed up to 500km from geo orbit
AT&T subscribers back in court to crack open telco giant's $60m FTC settlement over limited 'unlimited data' plans
Bring on 5G where Qualcomm doesn't have the patents to block out competitors and competition.
Just look at the sick state of the US mobile market, where half of the phones still use Qualcomm's 20+ year old incompatible (with the rest of the world) CDMA technology, and half the telco's there are so cheap they won't/wouldn't move to more modern GSM/LTE technologies.
Won't it be great when tourists can roam in America like they can in the rest of the world?
I can't believe you've done this: Cisco.com asks visitors to explain to IT why they have broken the website
Windows 10 has all but dropped touch support too, unless you have a tablet, its not used much on desktop or laptops at all.
Tesla owners will be the next ones having more accidents that other drivers, using phones in cars is already banned, due to the distraction they cause.
Can't say I'm surprised, a touch screen is never a proper replacement for a physical control.
Typical American company, using "agile" to shortcut development and customers to find the bugs.
This Tesla autopiliot is in exactly the same class as Boeing MCAS. Faulty and potentially lethal software that's flaws have been covered up and hidden.
The only thing for it is criminal charges for those at the top.
Hip and modern IBM can't beat legacy kit and services IBM: That's four consecutive quarters of revenue decline now
Don't worry, IBM will do what it always does. Pump the latest and greatest "strategic" product for 18 months, sell it to who ever is stupid enough to listen, then dump it and pump the next "latest and greatest" strategic product.
Blockchain must have been sold to those silly enough to buy in for 12 months now, so give it another 6 months before its dumped and buried in favour of some Red Hat "strategic" vapourware.
FedEx fed up playing box cop, sues Uncle Sam to make it stop: 'We do transportation, not law enforcement'
This isn't Boeing to end well: Plane maker to scrap some physical cert tests, use computer simulations instead
Yeah well, Trump needs to "Make America Great Again" but the US tech world has suffered from many years of cutting costs, cutting staff and cutting R&D and sending jobs offshore so the capitalists can make more profit.
Now Huawei and China are 18 months ahead of the Americans in 5G and they don't like to lose, hense them bullying all their allies to ban Huawei and buy inferior American crap.
As long as the rest of the word uses the inferior US crap too, then they think the US can keep its place in the IT/IoT/5G/communications/always on world, and hold the rest of the world back and stop them getting any more of an advantage in the new world than they already have.
Dead LAN's hand: IT staff 'locked out' of data center's core switch after the only bloke who could log into it dies

such hypocrites, they sell their labour service cheap to foreign countries undercutting local workers who lose their jobs, under the guise of free trade and globalisation, but if you try and import anything INTO India, they slap an import tax on it.
Time to whack a tax on outsourced labour from India, I think a 1000% tax on all services procured from India is a good start, and will help the government balance their budget, and promote growth of jobs in our own country.
“increase client awareness of the powerful talent that GBS and GTS bring to our engagements.”
I'm, pretty sure IBM clients know exactly what IBM isn't bringing to the table, this won't change a thing.
“puts a name to what we as IBMers have always known: that GBS and GTS practitioners are"
I'm pretty sure IBM staff know they are just lowly unrecognised "servants" - "IBM Services" is a good name.
All it tells us is the PWC buyout has finally been totally subsumed by IBM, and they have got rid of so many former PWC staff, they no longer need to pander to them with a different reporting line.
This would also explain why they are using Bain consultants for further RA's, as there is no one left from PWC.
yeah, he's right, he will make a windfall in the settlement, he was fired by a feminist HR manager who had been specifically put into google to promote females and gender equality and diversity, and been put too far up in the tree, who took her role far too seriously and started doing exactly the opposite to what she was hired for, in some Political Correctness "brain fart"
What has happened to the internet? The original design meant any link that was down was automatically bypassed and another route found. This is "supposed" to be the benefit of BGP.
We have seen similar things happen a number of times over the years. Is it poor design, or poor implementation, or is it just organisations deciding to override the automatic healing functionality for commercial benefit?
have to agree, IBM will soon be purchased by Apple or google and disappear into the history books as yet another enterprise that thought selling "fluff" (i.e. anything that costs nothing to produce) and offshoring anything physical to the cheapest, dumbest, illiterate monkey they can find in India, was the "way of the future"
I'd be betting on Oracle/Storagetek for a future in tapes.
