Have you been using, or watching, downdetector.com as your primary resource to monitor your digital service performance, if not unscheduled downtime, for a long time, and have been going back and forth for it? It's where some people like us, technology savvy and the curious we knew, go to quickly learn about some digital services, whether household or corporate resource are being affected, and the impact of others, associated or not, with those in the current incident, as they are listed, either in the mobile app or its website counterpart.  Did you know that there are few services that never gets to the list, too? We'll give them 5 star if we can. While the majority of those companies and brands in its categories including telecommunications, finance, internet, social media and gaming, shows up repeatedly. This is true regardless of where your country, which a present disruption and instability is happening, the moment you checked the status of a service,  and if trying to be

[TW] Technology impact on enterprises, consumer and data

The best time to learn the art and science of technology consulting or just the necessary practice required for a business not to be left behind or not to bleed cash unnessentially is now. Technology is magnanimous but it doesn't mean it has to continue being an alien to almost everyone.


Technologies surrounding computers, the Internet, programmable devices, sensors, AI, differentiated network convergence and decentralized systems, data and content are gaining an unprecedented development and adaptation within, and greatly affecting, enterprises, societies and their people. It must be the more powerful that everyone become a learned stakeholder, not just an end-user and leave everything to the vendor, service provider and their technology counterparts.

Smart cities are a giant technological upgrade and the experience must make people deal more for their lives in a better way.

Why make everyone learn?

Businesses can focus what matters to them. Technology can primarily help organizations to thrive, boost better capacity and achieve their goals which is more realistic to business systems, practices and compliance acquisitions, take them all-in, and adaptation of them regardless of business leaders and stakeholders' preferences or responsibilities.

How to make everyone learn?

Technology efforts need not be a nuisance to people. Enterprises need to continuously improve personnel capabilities or engage a third-party independent consultant to design, facilitate, train and assure the needed know-how for organizational and business priorities for technology investments, operations and management. A straightforward process must be expected to get the best absolute value done without problem.

An outsider that understood business and technical functions without having to go through rigid maneuvering must be sought.

An internal staff could have been better if their responsibilities were designed to see everything including what might affect their organizational goal's viability from the beginning. Even how they may perform would prove to be more complicated. It cannot be the technology people alone or business people trying to make things work full of imputations. Even knowledge transfer is troublesome in such case leaving the buyer or client company with dilapidated system.

Instead a good leader must be able to have a full and clear vantage of what's happening and what really is going to happen based on the project design and expected output and how it will have an impact to the company's businesses. The trust and delegation of responsibilities to subordinates are normal but not that the leader need not know anything about its people's work and output. Someone who can ascertain a needed outcome would be a real deal.

The number increases on customers' use of internet and more data. It is the cash crunch of all data consumers, in this time of ours. It has become more of a contention to connect than the realization of its value in itself. Customers cannot fathom how such a bad service is tolerated and allowed to continue in such state.

The experience is defrauding.

When millions of customers need to use the internet on their mobile as a necessity there must be a better way to handle complaints being brought up.

How do we make sure that we will never have to pay for a fabricated usage or the return of a load that has been eaten up? Millions can be made so easily. No sweat but it's a disservice for sure to the whole society not just consumers.

Device and software identifiers or data have made humans numbered. That means every activity that people do with their devices and online might be used and attached to them. Not only your computer's network media. There are lots of them.

Philippine telcos blocking entire SMS text with internet addresses in it

If you are sending SMS texts to your friends, family or colleagues and they contain internet or web address including IP and email addresses, and even a period or dot separating, regardless of, your words and numbers, they are automatically blocked and not going to be received by your waiting recipient. Cooler heads must prevail here especially if an important message is urgently being expected. IP version 6 address is fine. However, an IPv4 including localhost address (given automatically to every computers and network interfaces as their own alone designed for troubleshooting purposes), and your money in the billion figure using dot as separators would be blocked.  If you send "local.business, naman.naman etcetera" or any words that made you use dot in between them, as part of the text, they will be blocked. There are some, that isn't blocked in this category. Like check.iclassed, some.ent, whatever.local etcetera, that is because they do not form any domain name at all

How functional and secure AES is

How functional and secure AES is? The Philippine electorate will once again go to polls and decide who will lead the nation in the next six years of their lives. This important event which will elect new president, vice president and 12 senators for national posts, and seats are also being contested for provincial, city and municipal levels, is expected to be counted unofficially in 24 hours, concluded or canvassed officially in a few days or so but authorities and observers expected it to be done in less than a week. Last presidential election, it was known three days after close of election precincts. This is especially true for nation states, not only the Philippines, that conducts their elections using automated election or computerized-and-networked voting systems. In PH, the past automated elections were encumbered with technical issues and fraudulent results, uttered and written everywhere by many concerned and affected individuals and institutions alike. This time, we could say

Philippine cyber campaign

Are Philippine institutions being targeted or simply being probed? We don't know for certain. It could be either or both. Whichever comes first? What we can understand, with the success of such attacks, is that they have found their way. Really.   How hard or easy? The attacker knows, but probably, also, those being attacked. Inclination should be there no matter how sophisticated our security systems are. In cybersecurity, we do a very focused job. Making sure we disappoint whoever is trying to gain access to any resource without permission and authority regardless of the environment we are in. What happened is that every asset deemed to have every variant of resource built-in, operating, that makes up the entire system working whatever it is trying to employ, in that case the primary purpose. Meaning, we have to know if we are running our system in a manner that is really secure, provisioned properly during design stage and managed continuously afterwards, post-implementation. No
