Richard Platt‘s insight:

Awesome analysis for Security issues for Iot as well as for those looking for better solution providers.  Hats off to Gartner for this analysis on Intrusion Prevention – hopefully McAfee doesn’t have a NSA backdoor (we will look to Intel / McAfee to tell us that hasn’t happened)

Facebook isn’t dead and buried, but dodgy journalism lives on

See on Scoop.itInternet of Things – Technology focus

When I saw the recent eruption of stories claiming Facebook is ‘dead and buried to teens’ I was at first intrigued, but, once I had read through to their original sources, quickly disappointed – though not, I am afraid, surprised.

Richard Platt‘s insight:

Excellent analysis (and condemnation) of journalism and how it reports on the internet.   Do your homework, we always ask that people even read our posts with their own critical thinking caps on, otherwise you won’t find the necessary insights to make your own moves.  Good investigative read
