Want Windows 10 to run faster? We've got help.

3 reasons Apple’s iPhone 11 will exceed (muted) expectations

BrandPost: Preventing Office 365 Data Loss Surprises

Microsoft Office 365 is an indispensable tool for modern, digital businesses. For mid-sized companies in particular, many of their most important business processes depend on the various tools within Office 365. For this reason, protecting and backing up data that resides in Excel, Word, SharePoint, Planner, Outlook, Teams, and other applications that are part of Office 365 are critical. Data losses from within Office 365 can be costly and significantly impact productivity.Although Microsoft has provided some protection for that data, there are still many vulnerabilities. Perhaps the most common cause of data loss is accidental deletion or overwriting of files. The Recycle Bin holds deleted documents for only a short period of time.  If the problem is recognized quickly, that data will be gone permanently. Malicious deletion is another problem that isn’t adequately addressed by standard Microsoft data protection.To read this article in full, please click here

The power of the beep-beep-beep

Power goes out at a law firm, and the UPS immediately starts beeping as an alert that it is discharging. One woman working nearby finds the beeping annoying, and she turns off her PC in an effort to make it stop. That does nothing about the beep-beep-beep, of course, but she’s been driven to distraction and starts to shut down everything in the law firm. The beeping continues. So she goes to the source and unplugs the UPS.Yes, reader, you know the result: beep-beep-beep! But she cannot understand how the UPS can continue howling without a source of power. (Ahem! We are well aware that it has had no external source of power for quite some time at this point, but remember, the beeping is truly driving this poor woman around the bend.) “We thought it was possessed!” she exclaims to pilot fish.To read this article in full, please click here
