While discussing the television show Doomsday Preppers on twitter the topic of OPSEC came up. OPSEC, a military term for operations security, is the process of protecting smaller bits of information that could be grouped together to give the bigger picture.
Here is simple analogy to explain the concept of OPSEC. When we would go on vacation I would often tell family members, don't act like a tourist, it makes you a target for pick pockets and other criminals. Don't stare and point at objects and buildings. Do your best to blend in with the natives.
The Microsoft Surface Pro will be sold starting in January. Before the product has a chance to hit the streets many were quick to predict its failure.
What amazes me is that "experts" like John Dvorak make comments like, "I do not see why anyone would buy the even more expensive unit unless he or she was going to use it as an odd sort of desktop replacement."
I have been a fan and follower of technology writer John C. Dvorak for many years. Dvorak has been ahead of the curve on many issues. But like so many experts, Dvorak is an expert at giving his opinion. That does not mean he is an expert in every facet of technology. In the case of the Microsoft Surface Pro he makes many generic points just to justify his remarks.
