    I feel that hacking is being considered now by car manufacturers now that they have seen what hackers have been able to do. Especially since it’s been leaked that the government had a back-door to do these things for awhile now. It’s a big problem for them, because it’s not about someone’s personal information data (although we connect our phones…[Read more]

    I don’t think it intrudes on our privacy as long as we are willing uploading photos of ourselves. When you upload photos to Facebook, Instagram, etc, they have terms that allow them to do certain things with them. Facebook has a feature that can recognize you in other pictures and ask other people to tag you. So as long as you are uploading photos…[Read more]

  • I don’t think AWS is going to solely help Snap improve the user experience outside NA and EU. With two cloud services, it should help their network, but they need to optimize their app. Snapchat on Android has only recently started to improve its performance (even on high-end devices it was slow and buggy.) Which is important because Android is…[Read more]

    After heartbleed I changed my passwords for sites that were listed as affected by heartbleed. As for cloudbleed, I’ll keep an on it and see if anything important I use pops up and change my password. So, it doesn’t really make me think twice because most of these sites are useful or needed in some way. I don’t think about a companies IT…[Read more]

  • Our case this week was about cloud storage and document management. I am personally not a big fan of keeping my files “in the cloud.” This article defines the cloud as what we usually think about (Google […]

    • For Kevin’s first question, I would say that due to constantly agreeing to terms and conditions of software, applications, and more, this data feels like it is no longer even our property to use. I feel that if you accept that nothing is private and anything can be publicized, then it is much easier to store these pieces of data with these cloud storage companies. I also have seen how many users these companies have and how much data they contain and I feel that it is nearly impossible to keep tabs on all of this data. I feel that employees of this company have other things that are more important than browsing your private data. This is not stating that they wont, it is just highly unlikely.

    • 1. I cannot necessarily say that I trust them, but I really have no choice. Everything nowadays is data driven. Companies need our data, and unfortunately its something that they are going to take and use no matter what we do.
      2. If my data was stolen off of the cloud I would try to emulate repercussions in a law suit to the cloud service that hosted by data. But realistically, how likely is it that I win that battle?
      3. Yes i consider Facebook as part of the cloud. Facebook stores every post and photo you have ever taken. Its’s all saved somewhere. As advanced a company as Facebook is, I’m almost positive its cloud driven.

    • To answer Kevin’s first question, I truly do not trust companies like Facebook with my information, but I still plan on using Facebook. I don’t post and interact on Facebook often. I use it as a source of information and event planning. The information I have on my Facebook account, I am comfortable for it to be out in public, but still don’t trust how Facebook uses it. However, other sites like Google, I make sure to skim through the terms and conditions before posting my information.

    • Do you truly trust these companies with your private photos and data?
      I would not trust cloud services to protect my personal information due to many incidents such as celebrities icloud being hack and personal photos were released as a result.

      What would you do if your data was stolen off of your cloud storage?
      If my information was stolen I will have to get the law involved. To potentially go after a lawsuit case in the hopes that, that cloud services will strengthen their security after work.

      Did you consider Facebook as part of “the cloud”?
      At first, no. Thinking about it now I would say it is a form of cloud base service, in that they store your photos.

    • 1. I agree with the comments above and do not completely trust these companies with my personal photos and data. Like John said, there have been many incidents of iCloud being hacked and personal photos being leaked to the public. Just two days ago, hackers targeted supermodel Emily Ratajkowski’s iCloud. Hackers breached her iCloud and leaked her personal photos.
      2. Like the comments above, if my data were stolen off of the cloud, I would have to get legal services involved depending on the severity of the data that was leaked.
      3. Personally, Facebook acts as a cloud to me. Depending on where the information is stored, it may not be classified as a cloud service.

    • I agree for the most part with everyone where they believe that their information is not fully secure in the hands of these companies but still decide to use it. Data is so important today and everyone collects and stores it. If my information were to be breached, I’m not sure what I would do. There was probably something in the fine print that prevents you from suing these companies in the case that something does happen. Most of us probably did not read the terms of service when we clicked ok and signed up for accounts. I do personally think that Facebook is a part of the cloud because all my posts, photos, and videos are stored on there.

    At the moment, I wouldn’t be too worried about banks using legacy systems. That’s because I agree with “why fix what is not broken.” Plus, you don’t hear about banking systems being hacked or ever having really major issues all that often. Although, while they are not broken, it is getting to the point where they will need to be replaced for…[Read more]

  • In class we talked about how important ERP systems are for companies. This is especially true now that most, if not all, companies have implemented an ERP system. With advancements in technology and internet […]

    • To answer Kevin’s first question, I do think companies will be interested in hybrid ERP systems but not too many may make the switch anytime soon. Most larger companies seem to be stagnant and have a hard time being agile and adapting to modern issues and implementing modern technology. I feel that most established companies have too much legacy software/hardware in which needs to be converted to make the switch easily. I do feel as though newer companies who are recently starting up may implement these new hybrid systems into their architecture.

    Steve Jobs was very good at presenting things, he made Apple famous for his ability to take something that another company had already done and act like Apple was first or did it better. For instance, in his iPhone announcement, BlackBerrys were great smartphones, but he was able to make it seem like the iPhone was so much better.
    The reason he…[Read more]

    This week we started putting together our binder after finalizing our documents. I started to write our explanations for each document we are including and deciding the order of everything in our binder. We haven’t heard from Lauren in over a month now, so we have no idea if she completed anything she had wanted to.

    This week my partner and I continued to finalize our documents so that we didn’t have any work to do over break and only a small amount after break. We have lost contact with Lauren and have been unable to re-establish any sort of communication with her. Luckily, we are able to easily fudge the schedule for her work as it is just research and have…[Read more]

    This week we were not able to contact Lauren as she did not respond to our texts, so we are unsure of what she accomplished this week or what is going on. I continued to work on documents and finalize them. We should be done our documentation before break.

    This week our group did not accomplish much as we were both preoccupied with our exam. We were able to get another update from Lauren about her research which is good, but we didn’t have an actual meeting this week. We are going to start finalizing our documents over the next few weeks before break.

  • This week I was not able to make our weekly meeting with Lauren because I missed my train home. I reached out to Andrew and asked him if was okay conducting the meeting himself and we discussed what he should talk/ask Lauren about. I continued to work on our schedule and make revisions on the documents that I am accountable for. We should…[Read more]
