I like this paper: “Berkeley Explains Exactly Why It Chose Google Over Microsoft” published here: http://articles.businessinsider.com/2011-12-23/tech/30547371_1_google-apps-google-products-migration

In my last paper about Cloud Computing I already mentioned several other cases, when educational institutions migrated from MS email system to the Google products. I don’t think that Google is a very good solution either, but from two evils is better to chose Google. This is my personal opinion. I was a director of IT Services for 6 years and my experience with the MS products was not I can say “a very positive”.

Microsoft, Nokia, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and Research In Motion are denying their smartphones and services are loaded with Carrier IQ

with 2 comments

A very interesting paper about privacy breach in many (maybe almost in all) mobile smart phones:

“Microsoft, Nokia, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and Research In Motion are just a few of the companies denying their smartphones and services are loaded with Carrier IQ, the company whose smartphone diagnostics software is accused of monitoring users’ activity without their explicit consent” from http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Security/Carrier-IQ-Connection-Denied-by-Microsoft-RIM-Others-154732/

“embedded by device manufacturers along with other diagnostic tools and software prior to shipment,”

“Carrier IQ’s products constitute a massive privacy breach.”

“Carrier IQ, the carrier-sanctioned keylogger and activity monitor that has been confirmed to exist on Android devices, on AT&T and Sprint networks, has been found in iOS.”
