Episode 23 – Oracle Back Peddles…Hard! Maybe Something CAN Escape A Black Hole… Just Like Hawking Said!

Published 3 years ago in Bitcoin , Cloud , Cybercrime , Security - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  Oracle discovers that maybe they should be, you know….On the Line!  This cloud thing is catching on!

After a few snarky comments and giving everyone else a decade head start, Oracle decides it’s never too late to have been wrong.  Let’s see if building 12 new data centers is enough to stop the bleeding, as AWS on-boards 5000 new Oracle databases per month….WOW!

Episode 22 – Brought to you by China, the letter “N” and Winnie the Pooh.

Published 3 years ago in AI , Cybercrime , Facebook , Security - 0 Comments

Welcome back to the Tech Fugitives podcast.  When China bans the letter “N”, they become…you know… “Chia”.  It’s just a pet name.

When China locks down speech, they don’t mess around.  They go right after seditious concepts….like Winnie the Poo, uh…. and the Letter “N”.  I don’t think President XI could get his nose caught in a honey jar, but he’s trying …. hard!  We don’t see the likeness…really!
