Google Operating System – Google 推自己的操作系统

January 4, 2006

Google的市值不断攀升,有证券分析师预计其股价可以升到600USD。新闻报道Google中国又发布新闻扩大其在华的招聘计划,由于很多员工休假,李开复先生亲自面试。Google与Sun结成战略合作伙伴,共同推进OpenOffice的在线免费应用。Google前不久开放了自己的Google Talk后台技术,支持发布了Jingle,作为XMPP的VoIP、视频等应用的扩展。Google击败Microsoft成功竞价美国在线5%股份。可谓新闻不断,喜事连连。
可是看到下面的新闻还是让人吃了一惊。据洛山矶时报(LA Times)报道Google正在与全球零售业领袖沃尔玛计划联合推出装有Google操作系统的低价全功能PC。虽然Google与沃尔玛双方都出面否认了上述传言,但是我们宁愿相信不会空穴来风。这样Google与Microsoft的战线延伸到了对方的腹地。怎么样,是不是感觉下一步Google莫非还要作游戏吧?

很久前Google就推出了自己面向企业搜索的Appliance产品,现在Google还正在推出面向个人消费者的硬件Cube,据报道认为该产品将会尽可能的傻瓜化,可以收听在线音乐和视频,并且还可以拨打VoIP电话,与面向个人消费者的Google Talk相配套,构成Google的完整VoIP产品线。这样不仅仅与Microsoft展开全面的竞争,Google的竞争对手名单中还增加了Apple。


Data Security – More Attention in 2006

January 4, 2006

More and more network security incidents were reported at 2005, resulted from worms and viruses, network phishing, bot network attack, credit card number divulge, personal information leakage and so on. See the analysis article at Though most of these reports are from the other regions of the world, the ciscumstances won’t be better for China. For a conservative prediction, that’s at least the tommorrow of China.

It’s becoming more popular for Chinese people to buy something at e-shops, paying by their credit cards and deposit cards. That means more and more sensitive information are transported at the Internet and stored at somewhere not under good-enough protection.

Mobile phone numbers are somewhat a goods with clear price at the market. As a result, it’s a tough task for mobile operators to protect their account information against those advertisement SMS providers.

At the journey of SOX compliance of those public list companies, financial data, from the birth to every process point, must be protected against illegal modification and leakage.

Security managers must have their team pay more attention to data security to investigate the business requirements and their action taken at 2006.
