“Telmex vs. Apple y Netflix”

 

En mi pobre opinión el problema es que Telmex o el “Sindicado de Telefonistas de la República Mexicana” mejor dicho, creen que Netflix se aprovecha de su infraestructura para poder ofrecer su servicio, pero veamos dos cosas:

En primera, Netflix es un proveedor de servicios, no es un proveedor de internet, no vende discos o renta películas físicas, todo es digital y en la renta de su servicio en ninguna cláusula dice que ellos se harán cargo de proveer el internet al cliente, eso siempre queda de lado del cliente. read more

Una rayita mas al tigre: las coaliciones son un asco

El sistema electoral mexicano es un asco y lo digo esta vez por las llamadas “coaliciones”. ¿Cuál es su proposito?, en mi opinión, solo mantener a flote a partidos políticos que no tienen la fortaleza o un canditado lo suficientemente popular para obtener el mínimo de votos necesarios para mantenerse a flote.

Tambien creo que sirven para generar incertidumbre entre los votantes sobre como aplicar el voto, tan así que a estas alturas muchos no saben como votar y en varios medios se trata de aclarar este problema:

Creo que lo mejor sería simplemente no permitir las coaliciones. El propósito (ideal) de que haya diferentes partidos politicos es porque cada uno representa un punto de vista diferente e independiente, es decir, ninguno le debe nada al otro. Entonces, sin coalición, si un partido político no da el ancho, bueno, para afuera, entre menos burros mas olotes.

La otra opción, que se permitan las coaliciones, pero en este caso, en la voleta aparece un solo recuadro para el candidato y el total de votos de dicho candidato se reparte equitativamente entre todos los partidos políticos integrantes de la coalición. A ver si a los partidos fuertes les conviene hacer coaliciones.

Pero seamos sinceros, las coaliciones sirven solo para que partidos políticos pequeños no pierdan su registro y sigan chupando dinero del pueblo. Por que sí, todos los patidos políticos viven del dinero del pueblo.

#Apple have a #serious 2FA issue

 

I have two factor authentication for my Apple ID, the problem is that any device with my Apple ID is able to get the code for the 2FA, so, if I try to log in in the computer it will prompt the code… in the same computer I’m trying to log in !!!

To me this is an issue, what’s the point of having 2FA if the code appears right in the device where I’m trying to log in?. It must appear on any other device except the one I have in front of me.

Would making drugs “legal” in our country do something better?

TLDR; Yes, with some caveats.

Long Story, well in many places they are illegal, there are some permissible laws that allows you to use them for either medical or entertainment at certain places, the purpose of this is to reduce the demand, supply and risk for users.

The problem in a country like Mexico is how people is educated. Just like beer, many Mexicans use to go every Friday to the liquor store (Oxxo) and get a couple (maybe more) of six-pack of their favourite beer and get drunk as hell.

Maybe with some more education we can make what we do now with tobacco, where it’s  allowed in “ventilated places”, restaurants, coffee shops or anything closed is now allowed except bars which of obvious reasons it’s allowed.

So, the problem resides in the education of the people, if you allow them to get drugs like getting a candy they certainly will get hurt. Many would say, well is their lives, why am I supposed to care?.

Well, think about a person under the influence of drugs driving. Just like we do now, is not okay to get the wheels if you are drunk, its not okay to get the wheels if you are stoned.

And… I think what’s going to happen in my country, people getting stoned and felling the king of the world but only to hurt themselves or worse, hurting someone else.

This is something that will not happen in the next 6 years.. just watch this clip from pulp fiction, it was 1994, and hell, that was more than 20 years ago!.

What would you do if Microsoft acquires GitHub??

Quite probably you have a repo in GitHub, and probably the company you work for does too. Aside from the fact that they have to stick with the terms and policies that already govern GitHub, what would you do ?.

For many Linux/OpenSource users this is a dilemma, Microsoft is the “enemy” because for so many years Microsoft tried to kill Linux and now is using it in their cloud offering just because no-one beats Linux in the server (or VPS or whatever the fuck buzz-name you choose), and it seems they like to embrace-extend-extinguish Linux.

Would you keep your code in GitHub knowing Microsoft is behind?. would you move to any other provider?. Would you prefer to use your own Git Server?. Think about it! a leave a comment.

 

Microsoft may be talking to GitHub about possible acquiring the hosting and development service, according to a report. If it happens, the move may not be as crazy as some might think.
