Clare Hopping. 22 Feb, 2019. Credits. Google. Alt Text. Google Cloud Services Platform. Google has launched itself into the hybrid cloud arena, launching Google Cloud Service Platform to help businesses take advantage of a mixed on-premise and cloud services at once. CSP is built upon Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and integrates GKE On-Prem, which allows all of Google’s services to be pushed through to datacentres if a business doesn’t want to (or their sensitive data doesn’t allow for it to) operate solely on the cloud. It will especially be useful for highly-regulated businesses that need to keep ownership of their data, but also companies that need to run legacy applications in their own datacentre, rather than in the cloud.

Barry Collins. 22 Feb, 2019. About 20 years ago, I hit the nadir of my career in tech journalism. Egged on by my editor at the Sunday Times, I wrote a column lobbing bricks at these so-called smartphones that had just arrived on the market. There's nothing smart about these hulking great lumps of glass and plastic, I wrote. They're terrible phones, terrible cameras, terrible at everything.

Twentysomething me, of course, made a rookie error. I wrote off an entire genre of technology based on the first devices available on the market. What I didn't appreciate at the t.
