Any vendor will tell you they have detailed analytics and an intuitive interface (GUI). They'll state that certain tasks can be done in “just a few clicks”. Most vendors over-promise and under-deliver in this area, which is why we at Avi Networks took up the challenge of showing (not just telling) how much better the experience can be with our load balancer.

San Francisco is an uproar over electric scooters. Thanks to startups like Bird, LimeBike and Spin, the motorized two-wheelers invaded San Francisco’s streets, seemingly overnight, and quickly became the Tech Bus issue of 2018. While commuters and tourists enjoy the environmentally friendly transport, residents bemoan broken toes, near-miss collisions and abandoned scooters littering the sidewalk. Meantime, the city legislators are struggling to know how to deal with the new and high-profile roll-out, which apparently has no formal permits.

Citrix NetScaler’s recently exposed security exploit, which allows attackers to bypass authentication and take full control of the load balancing infrastructure, is frightening. But it is hardly a standalone incident. Every product from every company may eventually succumb to a critical vulnerability. This raises some good questions around security. How does a vendor test the security of their product? If vulnerabilities are inevitable, what is the vendor response and customer strategy?

This week I came across my still functioning iPod Classic “click wheel”. This was my exercise companion for many years and I still marvel at the engineering innovation (holds thousands of songs!) and simple elegance of the intuitive user interface (click wheel!). In today’s consumer society we expect our electronics to be intuitive. When announced in 2003 the “click-wheel” was years ahead at a time most electronics still came with detailed instruction manuals. Launching a consumer product with a click wheel was a radical approach, pushing the end-user experience to the very limits of engineering.
