Thoughts on Alcatel-Lucent

September 13, 2007

Wow. It has been quite a week. I am sitting here in Norwalk, CT – TMC’s headquarters and feel a bit under the weather. This is not a surprise as I haven’t slept since last Friday due the super-busy schedule at ITEXPO (photos and videos). It takes about 24 hours for the extra expo-related adrenaline to empty from your system which subsequently causes a bit of withdrawal.

P2P Identity Theft

September 7, 2007

Boy are those hackers are creative is all I could think when I learned a person used LimeWire to steal personal information such as tax returns from people’s computers. The hacker subsequently used this information to commit identity theft. Thankfully law enforcement including the secret service helped solve this case and as you might imagine it is very difficult to solve a case of identity theft via p2p file-sharing network.   Having your identity stolen in this manner is a really tough crime to solve and if you have a computer that others use, you may want to make sure that LimeWire and other file sharing software is not installed. If it is be sure to set it to only share files in directories that do not contain your confidential information such as passwords and tax returns.   Good luck and may the p2p firewall be with you.   Here is more from the Seattle Times.

Nortel on Microsoft/Cisco

September 4, 2007

The following comments are from Nortel’s Tony Rybczynski regarding the new relationship between Microsoft and Cisco. I found them interesting and worth passing along.   ---   I was on holidays in Eastern Europe when the photo shoot took place. During my travels I learnt that the Austrio-Hungarian empire was largely created by making love (through arranged marriages) not war.
