Apple is changing the world of enterprise IT

I spoke with the CEO of one of Apple’s most recently announced enterprise mobility partners, Sunil Patro, founder and CEO at SignEasy, to learn more about Apple’s commitment to enterprise technology – and the growing importance of India to the tech economy.Apple is an enterprise company Apple’s focus on enterprise computing is intensifying, much to the surprise of the old guard in IT, for whom Macs, iPads and iPhones will always be “toys," despite their proven effectiveness in the real world.I believe it was the iPad that really drove Apple into the enterprise; that trickle has become a flood and it means you’ll find Apple platforms in most businesses today.To read this article in full, please click here

For those of you who haven’t patched since May, there’s exceedingly bad news on the horizon. Per Catalin Cimpanu at ZDNet, Metasploit’s working-but-just-barely BlueKeep exploit is about to get a significant bug fix. That'll put BlueKeep infection capabilities in the hands of mere mortals.

Facebook’s Libra co-creator: Social, financial data will remain separate

The co-creator of Facebook's Libra says that once the blockchain-based digital currency is launched users' social media information – and financial data tied to the stablecoin – will not be connected in any way.Christian Catalini, the head economist at Calibra, the Facebook subsidiary in charge of the launch of Libra and its associated online digital wallet, said that from the beginning the plan for the cash-backed cryptocurrency was to profit from advertising and not the sale of private data.To read this article in full, please click here

The jig is up

It’s back 40 years ago, and this pilot fish is working in the repair department of a company that manufactures microwave transmitting equipment for the telecom industry. (But it’s 40 years ago, so you all should know who uses this stuff.)One bright morning, fish has a transmitter board in a jig so he can test it, and no matter what he does, the readings aren’t coming out right. Fish opens the jig to see if there’s a problem, and finds that one of the wires going to the power supply is just barely hanging on by a thread. He sees evidence of arcing that would explain why the readings are messed up.Confident that the tech assisting him has thrown the circuit breaker, fish reaches in to tighten the connection.To read this article in full, please click here

Why you should begin using Sign in with Apple

Apple has published lots of information explaining how its newly introduced Sign in With Apple service solves a problem most of us didn’t know existed and which many of us would very much like to solve.Who watches the watchmen? The issue:Most social sign-in services act a little like people-tracking honey pots: You come to use a website or service and stay because the people providing the authorization use that moment to gather even more information about what you do.What happens is that the persistent identity used by those services can be combined with other data to identify where you go, what you look for and more.To read this article in full, please click here

The Pixel 4's power-plunging puzzle

Fountains of virtual ink have been spilled over the Pixel 4's stamina and how the phone's battery life isn't all that it could be.Me? After living with the Pixel 4 for a few weeks now, I'm not quite as down on its staying power as some folks were whilst working up early reviews of the device. I think somewhere between "okay" and "borderline acceptable" sums up my experience with the phone's endurance thus far: I'm consistently making it through what I'd call full typical days for me, at this point, but I'm sometimes cutting it closer than I'd like by the end of the day — something that certainly doesn't inspire confidence about how the phone might fare when I'm traveling or having another sort of day with unusually high usage.To read this article in full, please click here

Peace of mind (but nothing else)

It’s 20 years ago or so and this pilot fish is at a client’s site fixing something, when the office manager asks if he could double-check the office backup as long as he’s there. Sure, says fish. Office manager then puts a tape in the tape drive of his PC and double-clicks an icon, after which a black window flashes on screen, but just for a fraction of a second.“That's it!” says the office manager. “Fast, huh?” This doesn’t pass fish’s smell test — how much data could possibly be backed up in less than a second? So he tells the OM, Let me take another look. He peers closely as that screen flashes up briefly once again.And he sees that it says: “Bad command or filename.”To read this article in full, please click here

Disappearing Windows Update deferral pane suddenly reappears

Think of it as the patching prodigal son.When Microsoft released Win10 version 1903 — indeed, in the later beta test copies of 1903, dating back to early this year — a funny thing happened. Many testers discovered that Win10 1903 hid its update deferral settings, if you had the temerity to change them.For those who haven’t changed their update deferral settings, Win10 version 1903 Pro invites you to change the settings in a portion of the Windows Update advanced options dialog (to see it, click Start > Settings > Update & Security > Advanced options). To read this article in full, please click here
