Good insights and thanks for the links.

Brian,

If you give Consumers the Option of chosing either Convenience or Security they will ALWAYS Chose convenience.

Let me give you another example I am sure you must have noticed a lot of Retail/Ecommerce/Media Sites today giving you the option of Logging on to their Sites using your Facebook or Twitter Logins.

How Safe is that?

ITS AN EXTREMELY UNSAFE SECURITY PRACTICE.

(I am saying from my Experience as a Security Pro).

You must have heard of the Recent Hacking Attacks on Facebook and Twitter.

Though they may claim that no USer Data was stolen how can you be 100% sure?

Especially for a Listed Company like Facebook which is totally dependent on Government Aid to survive;What are the chances that they will tell you the truth and the Whole Truth?

Don't Believe me?

Its beyond Shocking that the US Government is giving a company like Facebook a Tax Refund of USD 500 million this year!!!

If that tax loophole was'nt there and instead they were forced to Pay Taxes on Profits like other Private Businesses);they would have nothing left to pay Employees!!!

And now Facebook plans to charge Users for Promoting Feeds/Comments of Users!!!

Will you trust them with your Data?

I would'nt.

But most AMericans will.

The consequences will be dire.

 

Regards

Ashish.

I think he ultimately wants control. That's what drives true leadership.

@Brian but did the clerk lift in from your device or directly, say if you used your debit card? My credit card company recently called me to ask about questionable charges. Two of them were completely unfamiliar to me. Though the charges had been blocked, the company cancelled that card and issued me a new one to use. I don't know if it bothers to trace where the card information was hacked.

Ashish, you make a good point, but I think it's only for the moment. As hacking becomes the warfare of our era, I think mobile users will get very concerned and savvy about buying security along with their next cool device. 

(Of course I say that just after having my ATM card number lifted by a clerk, so perhaps I'm a little sensitive!)

Wale,

As far Mobile Devices go today.Most Users don't care about Security.

As long as they can get their hands on the most Amazing Appps possible(and they should be free);they dont mind sharing any and every bit of data they have with the Provider of the App.

Sad but true.

Blackberry definitely has the best security but dont feel too many consumers care about Security in this space[Excluding Enterprises,which continue to purchase large numbers of Blackberries today].

@tech4people, i think this may tend to re-initiate a discourse about PC/Laptop and mobile devices. Blackeberry has the most reliable security technology for mobile phone in the world, that's been a saving grace for the company despite its hard times. What do you think of consumers behaviour as regard security, encouraging?

Brian,

Honestly I am more Hopeful about dell than RIM.

I genuinely want both companies to succeed in the marketplace but Dell has more offerings(in very different markets) than RIM.

The Biggest Advantage that Dell have behind them is the Massive Financial backing of Microsoft.

It means a lot to have so much cash that you don't have to worry about taking risks even there is a significant possibility of Failure.

Regards

Ashish.

Mr Roques,

I am not very sure about that-[I Don't really have much access to the Inner Workings of Dell].

What could however could be the issue is that he did not have enough technical freedom to design and Sell the kind of Products he wanted to sell in the Market.

That can happen;after he was not a Majority Shareholder in the Company himself.

Also,one can never forget the impact of having to deal with Stock Markets on a day to day basis-It can be nerve-wracking to say the least.

Well, what I think is happening is that customers are buyijg PCs but instead of updating it in a year, they will buy a Tablet and probably take 2 years or more to buy a new pc. Did Michael Dell buy Dell because the other stakeholders wouldnt allow them to make radical decisions?
