I don't know but I've been told: IBM slurps AU$95.5m ERP delivery contract from Aussie DoD


May as well just call it a $billion to IBM right now. Rinse and Repeat.

WOW. I really would have thought the government would have learnt by now.

IBM. They are absolute *masters* of delay

IBM. They are absolute wizards at audit trail - 'put in writing that its the customer fault' - regardless of truth.

IBM: To them truth means: Choose any ONE from this set "The Truth", "The whole truth" or "nothing but the truth". Never more than one from the set remember.

Elon Musk's new idea is to hook your noggin up to an AI – but is he just insane about the brain?

nbn™ CEO didn't mean to offend gamers, just brand them unwelcome bandwidth-hogs


nbn CEO really did not understand and nobody told him?

Does the CEO of the NBN really not understand that when a popular new game is released lots of people will download it at the same time?

Does the CEO of the NBN really not understand that when a multi-gigabyte patch is released for a wildly popular massive multiplayer online game is release all users are FORCED (by the game company) to all update to that patch at the same time?

Does the CEO of the NBN really not understand that the act of GAMING - as in actually playing - is very light on bandwidth, and likely the last thing to cause a problem vs. video streaming?

So why does the CEO of the NBN not have active dialog with GAME COMPANIES to get them to better address download requirements - like streaming patches in advance.

I actually understand the issue. "Gaming" is a concern. Gamers are not. Talk to the game companies and HELP THEM get their delivery models right.
