Most recently, one of the industry’s leading software vendors, VMware, was forced to release a patch for a critical vulnerability that allowed underprivileged users to attain access to administrative rights.
In an age where we sometimes move faster than the speed of light, patience is a quality not many possess. Like children who keep asking “Are we there yet?” or “When can I have another cookie?”, those who don’t learn to wait are denied the harvest of sweeter fruits.

It does become quite hard for your small- to medium-sized business to establish a strong online presence when they are surrounded by singers and supermodels with their own collection of trending hashtags.
