No matter what they do, companies are sure to annoy someone.
Microsoft is after all of our entertainment technologies. It is an assault on so many fronts that it is easy to lose track.
There is no law that a company has to stay in business. On the contrary, there is a law that everything man creates is mortal. It is rare for a company to be successful for more than 25 years. The idea that companies are immortal is a Wall Street misunderstanding. The main impact of the Internet is not economic; it is psychological. There is no new economy. The Internet greatly extends the old economy, okay?
No financial man will ever understand business because financial people think a company makes money. A company makes shoes, and no financial man understands that. They think money is real. Shoes are real. Money is an end result.
Advertising is the last resort of the incompetent.

Three pearls of wisdom from e-failures: 1) Free does not equal profit. 2) Start small and then get big. 3) Geeks don't know crap about business.
Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them.

If there are 1,000 people who hear you, only 500 will take the time to listen, 300 will understand what you said, 100 will do something about it and 50 of those will be negative. We can hope that the other 50 will do something positive.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
