So what happened when I clicked the link?
As I was thinking , upon hitting "download" I was taken to a web page in the browser where a nice long form was ready to take all my information for use by the third party company that was providing the pdf, not the actual pdf. Most of these pdf documents, called "white papers" are nothing more than clevelry written marketing documents for particular products or services that the sponsoring company has to sell. Again, an element of disingenuous tactics realized as rather than selling the product on its own merits , it is hidden under the guise of "application delivery". I'd appreciate the companies perspective a lot better if they came out and said they were selling product X and that product X makes application delivery better, wouldn't you??
