Dear Telephone and Voice Over IP service providers. 

The year is 2015 CE. 

We have had the Internet for at least 30 years now, and average speeds, even in remote parts of the world are above 100kbps.

It is safe to increase the voice quality on your damned networks to something other than the 8 kilohertz junk you keep pushing down multi-megabit pipes.

An Incredibly smart person at Google believes that this kind of misbehaviour (in Google Chrome) is good for the User.
Big shame, because I need to get my work done, which means I will look for another browser that doesn't get in my way like this.

If you're wondering why this is absurd:
I can connect to a non-encrypted website like: amazon.co.uk (Yes indeed, it is unencrypted until you actually start doing payments) and Google won't block it for being "unsecure".
Somehow they think that weak encryption is worse than no encryption.
[Grrrr]

Yes, I believe that a strike-out solution is the correct approach. 

This is because someone setting up SSL would definitely test to make sure that it is at least running correctly. For such a person, and indeed everyone else, a warning would suffice to highlight that something is broken. The admin would either discover by themselves and fix it, or it would get reported. In the down time, people can still get stuff done.

In this case, A change in Chrome is what caused the SSL configuration on the server to become broken. This is not the fault of the Server Admin. Some weaknesses (https://weakdh.org ) were discovered and caused Chrome to change it's behaviour and it broke many sites, so of which may not even be possible to address (assuming there are home broadband routers out there which dared to be "secure" and use SSL, and are vulnerable to this issue, then the owners of these routers can no longer manage their routers, even though the admin page is only accessible from the LAN, and SSL was just a nice-to-have feature, not a necessity).

Yea, basically, Google and other browser vendors should scream loudly and sensibly when they believe a user is straying into trouble, but they should never assume to know more than the user what exactly is going on and leave the user without the ultimate choice in what action to take.

This is what +VMware  makes me go through in order to download a product I paid a not insignificant amount for.

Awesome, was beginning to wonder why +VMware  will allow such things happen to their customers.

We need better incentives for companies who store our data to keep it secure. 
When a criminal started lacing Tylenol capsules with cyanide in 1982, Johnson & Johnson quickly sprang into action to ensure consumer safety. It increased its internal production controls, recalled the capsules, offered an exchange for tablets, and within two months started using triple-seal tamper-resistant packaging. The company focused on fixing weak points in their supply chain so that users could be sure that no one had interfered with the p...

The web is more Walled-Garden than you might think at first blush:

My phone screen is 426ppi. This cardboard convinced me I need more in just 5 minutes.

The wifi calling on EE has horrible voice quality. Shame really considering that wifi typically has more bandwidth than 4G.

I don't know where developers got the idea that Shaking your phone means frustration.

One time out of maybe 1000, hou deliberately shake the phone because you minimized candy crush and lost all your progress on a hard level. All the other times, it's just random movement of your hand as you are moving about or adjusting your body...

Then you have to dismiss a silly feedback dialog or read some trash about taking a break to relieve stress.

Why does +Google Now display different cards on my different devices? It completely destroys handoff.

In nobody seems to have caught on to the idea to open late and close late so that 9 to 5 people can get shopping done without having to take a day off.

Great company to buy from. Staff were friendly and answered all my questions. I dealt with Stephen Du Cros during my transaction and there was no pressure on me to buy any of the add-ons even though I chose the extended warranty. He was responsive and understood the urgency as I was car-less and needed a replacement car quickly. Got 4 new tyres by the time I came to pick up and they even threw in a free service to the car. Highly recommended.
