    If they get too many of those ultra-geeks into the same room, a "Windows vs. Linux" or "Android vs. iOS" war might break out. Lol!

    LOL, that's for sure. :p

    They will need to sort out the Android squad from the iOS loyalists before packing everyone in the same room. :)

    A friend commented in another forum :

    ...Which is very true. Think about the high speed 'Net links the cell tower equipment is tied in, and some scary things could happen if there's any 'backdoor'code planted in their firmware, just in case its needed for future use.

    We depend heavily on Net infrastructure; for finance, product ordering, etc. I could live just fine without a cell phone, but take away online banking and it would be a giant step backwards.

    Was watching some BBC documentaries about life in the country farms during the war, and how it changed the whole picture; Britain had been importing a major pat of its food, since no one could compete with the American grain mega farming. All of a sudden, that supply line gets seriously shaky with the U-Boat campaign in the Atlantic.

    Imagine if there's open warfare in the networks?
