Welcome to Hangouts hell

For a minute there, I thought Google might have actually been on its way to a clear and sensible strategy for its mess of messaging services.That sentiment started a little over a year ago, in December of 2018. Back then, y'see, Google announced it was "pausing" all work and investments in Allo, the A.I.-injected chat service it had launched with lots of fanfare and little sense of purpose two years prior. With that distraction out of the way, we were told, Google would focus its efforts solely on a single set of messaging and video chatting apps for consumers and a single set of matching products for business teams. Focus! Purpose! Eureka!To read this article in full, please click here

Appropriated

This pilot fish gets a request for a new server, and after being satisfied with all his post-install checks, he turns it over to the customers. But they say the server is experiencing intermittent network connectivity.So fish has the network team check the port, network switch and cable. All seems fine: constant link status and no dropped packets. But the problem persists. Fish calls vendor for help and sends it the diag report from the lights-out interface. But the hardware looks fine.New day, new strategy. Fish tries “watch nmap” from his workstation; no issues. He tries it from the Kickstart server. And this is interesting: The server is working one run, but no response the next. On a hunch, fish adds ARP check in the watch. Now he’s getting somewhere: ARP is alternating between two MAC address from the same IP, one of which fish doesn’t recognize.To read this article in full, please click here

Will Apple's iOS 14 really support all of today's iOS 13-compatible iPhones?

If you’re in the business of budgeting for and managing a fleet of iOS devices in enterprise or education deployments, you’ll be eager to learn whether today’s big  Apple rumor is hot stuff or hot air.The claim: iOS 14 to support all iOS 13 devices The claim is that iOS 14 will be hugely backward compatible, to the extent that it will run on every existing iPhone that can run iOS 13, though not the iPad mini 4 and the iPad Air 2. (iOS 13 supports every device back to and including the iPhone 6S and the 2015 iPhone SE.)That Apple may consider supporting those devices once again with iOS 14 is great news for budget-strapped IT managers. They should not bet on this rumor just yet, as it comes from an obscure French website called iPhonesoft and hasn’t at this time been confirmed by anyone else.To read this article in full, please click here

Sad but true

Suburban high school wants to set up a tip line that students can text to if they are depressed or stressed out, or if they are concerned about another student who might be.

Fish tells him that providing that information isn’t consistent with saying that submissions are anonymous. But he insists: He wants to follow up with each student.To read this article in full, please click here

Get the January 2020 Patch Tuesday patches installed

This month has seen a whole lotta hand waving and sky-is-falling-caliber rhetoric, but the reality is much more prosaic. If you aren’t running a major network (and thus aren’t susceptible to the imminent problems with Remote Desktop Gateway, the Citrix network bugs or the whopping 334 patches in Oracle), there’s been little reason to install this month’s updates. To read this article in full, please click here
