It’s the Network Break! In this episode we jump with both feet into the Apple/FBI controversy and talk about the technical, legal, and even moral implications of the struggle between the device maker and the U.S. government.
We also explore other news, including a hospital hit by ransomware that paid the ransom, and a semiconductor manufacturer that paid millions to a university in a patent dispute.
We discuss the reasons why people talk about public clouds but not private ones, and examine the impact of a Verizon deal with SD-WAN startup Viptela. We wrap the show with highlights of recent financial announcements from Brocade, Cisco, and Arista.
