Instant America

As we all browse on the Internet, the high speed gratification seems to grow on us. So much, that an inkling in lack of speed makes us impatient – for just about everything.

BGP bug? Or feature... #nanog #

I happened on a conversation on NANOG on issues with AS 0 with as an IP, the issue was discovered with an update message. Read on for the full explanation from Ericsson:

There's nothing wrong in checking ASN in AGGREGATOR, we don't really want see ASN 0 anywhere, that's how draft-wkumari-idr-as0 (draft-ietf-idr-as0-00) came into the worlds.

To my knowledge - the only vendor which allows changing ASN in AGGREGATOR is Juniper, see "no-aggregator-id", in the past I've tried to talk to Yakov about it, without any results though. So for those who have it configured - please rethink whether you really need it.

As for SEOS - understanding that this badly affects our customers and not having draft-ietf-idr-error-handling fully implemented yet, we will temporarily disable this check in our code. Patch will be made available.

Cold Calling Stock Tips from New York to Amsterdam

For some strange reason I was added to a call list by the American stock brokers firm Joseph Gunnar, one of their brokers - Joe Steward - called on the 24 of October to tell me we had spoken last year and to scold me for failing to follow his advice and invest in a company. I have a reasonably good memory, and certainly would have remembered a call from a brokers firm in New York, so I was reasonably sure he started of with a lie.

Joe told me that he had some information that Ford would be releasing their results and repeatedly reminded me that Ford had been bailed out by the US government. Ford was at $12.49 and was on it's way up, he told me I would regret it if I didn't step in at that moment in time. And all he was asking was $10,000. Surely I could work on trust and cough up a measly $10,000 to establish a relationship with Joe. As we were speaking Ford had already gone up to $12.51.

A fool and his money are easily parted, and I'm no fool. I asked Joe to send me the information by email, and time being a critical element he had his assistent Alissa Raineri send it to me a couple of hours later. Turns out Joseph Steward is the Senior Vice President of Investments for Joseph Gunnar - in US American companies this is mostly one step up from the chai wallah. That was at least that is what the letter Alissa attached to the mail said. What Google says about Joseph Jemel Steward is was far more interesting.

Due diligence done I decided not to react, knowing that Joe was going to call me with in a week. The next days I checked to see what would have happened had I been a gambler, on the 24th Ford closed on $12.51 and from that day on it has been going down to a low of $9.75. Had I listened to Joe I would have lost $2206 at Ford's current value.

Obviously Joe called me back and asked whether I had invested in Yahoo! as he had advised me. I hung up the phone.

BlackBerry in Near Field Communication #nfc #crackberry

Research In Motion launched new BlackBerry Near Field Communication - NFC - enabled devices recently: the Bold 9790; Bold 9900; Curve 9360; and announced the Curve 9380. All of the devices run the new BlackBerry 7 OS. RIM is ahead of most of the field in this regard, although in most markets it’s so far ahead there’s little you can use the technology for.

RIM has recently been setting up pilots in India, Spain and Brasil. And the RIM bosses are adamant you’ll see payments take off very soon.

NFC replaces cash by 2016
A report by Forrester and PayPal predicts that payments using mobile phones will replace cash by 2016, ABI Research predicts that Google's step into Near Field Communication - NFC - with their recent launch of Google Wallet will drive adoption by the end of 2012, with global adoption in 2014, far sooner than the 2016 predicted by Forrester and PayPal. They also predict that the NFC chip would store the "user's banking and personal details – making it redundant to carry ID cards, cash or credit cards."

With Acer Inc, better known for it's laptops, planning to launch a NFC enabled phone next year, and Apple rumoured to be launching NFC capabilities in their iPhone5, I can really see that happening. Andy Lees, president of Windows Phone, said at the AsiaD conference last month that consumers can expect NFC-equipped iPhones and Windows Phone 7 devices in 2012.

Added to that the recent announcement 45 globally operating mobile phone operators pledging their support for the GSMA NFC implementation, including China Mobile, Vodafone Group, América Móvil, Telefónica Group, China Unicom, Axiata, Bharti Airtel, Deutsche Telekom, Verizon Wireless, and AT&T.

Near Field Communication in iPhone5 #nfc

Apple has been rumoured to be considering the integration of Near Field Communication technology for some time, there were rumours that the iPhone 4S would contain it and now there are rumours that the iPhone5 will contain an NFC Chip coming from handset manufacturers in Asia.

Google recently launched it's own electronic payment application Google Wallet linked to its mobile platform Android. Research In Motion - maker of the BlackBerry -  has unveiled three new BlackBerry smartphones with the Blackberry 7 OS which support NFC. All behind Nokia who was one of the first to launch a NFC enabled phone.

And it is likely we will see iWallet for iPhone5 coming from Apple soon.
