Full speed ahead for 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi
Last December customers were peppering wireless LAN vendors with questions about whether to upgrade to the pre-standard-but-certified 802.11ac products flooding the market or hold off until 2015, when more powerful "Wave 2" Gigabit Wifi gear was expected to become prevalent. A year later, even though Wave 2 products have begun trickling into the market, many IT shops seem less preoccupied with Wave 2 and more focused on installing the Wave 1 11ac routers, access points and other products at hand.

The 5 worst Big Data privacy risks (and how to guard against them)
The collection and manipulation of Big Data, as its proponents have been saying for several years now, can result in real-world benefits: Advertisements focused on what you actually want to buy; smart cars that can call for an ambulance if you're in an accident; wearable or implantable devices that can monitor your health and notify your doctor if something is going wrong.But, it can also lead to big privacy problems. By now it is glaringly obvious that when people generate thousands of data points every day – where they go, who they communicate with, what they read and write, what they buy, what they eat, what they watch, how much they exercise, how much they sleep and more – they are vulnerable to exposure in ways unimaginable a generation ago.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Red Hat product president Paul Cormier disses the Docker myth
So just what is the relationship between red-hot container company Docker and open source stalwart Red Hat? Are the two companies on the same side, or not? Do Docker containers complement or compete with Red Hat's Linux offerings?To get some answers, I talked with Paul Cormier, Red Hat's president of products and technologies, and he had some pretty strong opinions on the subject. But it all boils down to Red Hat's position that container technology (and Docker) simply isn't the be-all and end-all that many people seem to want it to be—at least not in the enterprise.Technology, not business"Containers can solve a lot of problems for enterprise," Cormier told me. "But it matters what's inside the container – what pieces of the user space OS and which Linux host the containers run on."To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Imagine traveling in an airliner without access to any of your personal electronic devices
The reason you're being asked to imagine the horror of air travel with no electronics is that counterterrorism officials here and abroad are reportedly considering just such a restriction in response to heightened concerns about bombs in carry-on luggage.That's on top of considering a ban on carry-on luggage.From an NPR story: Another possible remedy: banning electronic devices from the passenger cabin. Officials are discussing whether to require that electronics such as cellphones, iPads and computers be placed in the cargo hold with checked baggage, which goes through a much more rigorous screening process.
