this news 1st came from NYtimes,
nyt started a chinese edition last year and is quite eager to publish articles to expose some chinese leaders secret side.
I was a loyal fan of nyt all the time for such kind of articles.
and the chinese gvt banned nyt chinese and english all together last fall.
I bet nyt feel mad with it and come up with this silly post as retaliation.
Good point, security issue from connecting everything will figure equally critical. Internet of things that monitor civil infrastructure and smart grids need to have ironclad security layers. Future wars have the potential to be fought without firing a single bullet!
They will. They will because the current US President really does not see or respect the sovereignty of our country. Evidenced by his bowing to foreign heads-of-state, his selection of key critical advisers belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood, his continuing to arm Egypt, his poor support and relations with Isreal, his lack of intervention in China's currency manipulation, his lack of concern about our foreign embassys and our diplomats, his refusal to enhance border security, and.... Just pick up the paper. Obama is a one-world government advocate. Look elsewhere for help.
I would think that this just highlights the security issues with cloud computing. I am also sure that unless there is some real consequences to the actions of the hacker(s) and if connected with a country, country consequences then it will continue. After all, if there is no down side then why wouldn't they do it?
