Do you think security companies are playing both sides of the court? They hire hackers to create breaches (but also solutions) to help them sell more products? I've always seen this as a sign that we'll never have a virus-free system.
Maybe Nokia has a card up it's sleeve, but meanwhile I still think they made a horrible decision. If they wanted to enter the US market, MS might be a good choice but I have an even better one: Google.
I think eventually microsoft will pull ahead of android, they aren't out of the market yet and they have the capablity to pull ahead. It might take some time and changes but they will pull ahead eventually.
That sounds pretty bad to me,M.R. I might keep the idea for a scriipt or fiction story. Although a documentary wouldn't be a bad idea.
I have very strict thoughts concerning people who end up in jail. They should entertain their days doing community work of some kind. Why are they allowed to have phones? What I find unbelievable is that even being in jail they can keep on harming people and having their little "business" with the other inmates.
Mr.R - If you really, really want to try an Android why are getting an iPhone 4 instead?
This week I went to an Android developer seminar. I met a guy who has both an iPhone and an Android. Later on I learned he works as a service developer for mobile apps for one of the leading mobile service providers.
I agree with you in the order of the choice. I wouldn't have a MSFT, though.
In the Dom. Republic, the biggest security issue is having jail inmates call a person, threaten him (family will be in danger, etc) and make them send calling card numbers (that they can resell to other inmates).

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
