A hacking or an open door?

I have come across people on the Internet who would pay to have somebody spy on them through their modern analogue pixelated CCTV cameras. In this world of not judging people i would not say they were mentally defective just mentally different. Most of the CCTV cameras sold to the West are made in China, and the majority of them have backdoor passwords.

A very expensive Chinese CCTV camera that has a backdoor password also sells the same product without a name a non-named product at a fraction of the price without it software but with the backdoor password. So-called old technology HD-SDI DVR camera systems, are far superior to so-called modern home security systems that are cheap nasty CCTV analogue cameras.

HD-SDI DVR is digital not analogue. Digital uncompressed crystal clear image just like watching your modern flat screen television. And for some reason PR analogue systems are being sold as new technology. Analogue technology is almost definitely older than you and me.. HD-SDI digital is almost definitely younger then you or me but HD-SDI digital is classed as old technology.

Cheap and nasty analogue is cheap to make cheap to mass-produce and thus is the reason it is classed as modern technology compared to the superior digital HD-SDI.

You can sell a dead dog as a guard dog to a dumb person but is it moral to do so.

Moral is from the Latin "moralis" so therefore may be obsolete for the modern world and definitely obsolete to Silicon Valley and its equivalent in China.
I know in Turkey you can sell at an inflated price virgin donkeys, but how do they know it is a virgin?

P.S. i am not judging virgins donkeys or the Turkish.
Thank you [Philip]

Technological progress cannot be stopped. Better to change your habits than lose your computer security.

Can users influence the giants of the IT industry?

Of course, if the product does not suit users, they will start looking for an alternative. And then the company can review its product requirements. [Masha]

08.02

Can users influence the giants of the IT industry?

Users are able to affect the giants of the it industry? The only way to influence is to abandon the product and, as a result, lose the profits of the IT giants. But this is only in the case of mass failure, there is no other way, I think. [Татьяна]

08.02

Can users influence the giants of the IT industry?

"... the biggest players in the IT industry are least interested in losing face - and users."

Perhaps. this is the most effective method of dealing with such "monopolists", although it brings very tangible inconveniences for users. [GREEN]

08.02

Can users influence the giants of the IT industry?

I don't think that the giants of the IT industry are interested in the opinion of an ordinary software user. But the mass outflow of users will be very interesting to them. [Пaвeл]
