  • Siggraph preview: How Nvidia envisions the omniverse as a powerful
           productivity tool
    • Authors: Rob Enderle
      Abstract: Disclosure: Nvidia is a client of the author.Next week at Siggraph, Nvidia will be talking about its Omniverse offering, which contrasts sharply with the much-overhyped metaverse. What makes Nvidia’s effort powerful isn’t just that it’s being wrapped with services from companies like Siemens and used for cutting-edge autonomous factories like BMW’s latest, but its ability to anticipate and correct problems early on before they result in cost overruns or injuries. To read this article in full, please click here

  • Why it's time to stop printing and wasting money on paper
    • Authors: Paul Gillin
      Abstract: I first encountered the term "paperless office" in the 1980s. Nearly 40 years later, it still seems a distant goal. Stationery is about a $150 billion market, depending on whose figures you believe, and it's expected to grow slowly for the foreseeable future.This isn't going to be a screed about the environmental impact of paper usage; you already know all that.The business costs make our continued reliance on printed documents so confounding, particularly now that technology has reached the point where we can make a dent in the paper storm if not eliminate it.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Apple’s Stage Manager fluffs lines, extends rehearsal
    • Authors: Jonny Evans
      Abstract: Arriving this fall in iPadOS 16, Stage Manager aims to reinvent the iPad interface, bringing the tablet closer to the Mac and making for a more unified and multitasking-friendly environment. But release of this year's upgrade has apparently been delayed because Stage Manager isn’t ready for the spotlight yet, a Bloomberg report claims.Truth be told, it makes more sense this way.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Tech hiring enters the Big Freeze
    • Authors: Charlotte Trueman
      Abstract: As the global economic downturn continues to deepen, many technology companies are reacting to fears of an incoming recession by putting the brakes on hiring.While lowering payroll costs might seem like an easy way to reduce spending right now, the job landscape remains in a state of flux, with research showing that workers are just as pessimistic about the economic climate as their employers.As a result, 60% of US job seekers say they feel more urgency to find a job now, before market conditions change for the worse. This could leave companies that have decided to stop hiring with a talent drain they are unable to plug.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Why your company should subscribe to podcasting
    • Authors: Mike Elgan
      Abstract: The remote work revolution comes with challenges that have not been remotely solved in most organizations that have made the transition.Among these challenges are:
      Remote onboarding;
      Zoom fatigue and remote meeting overload;
      Up-to-date cybersecurity and tech training;
      Culture-building by remote staff;

  • Compensation chasms remains for women, minorities — even as salary
           gaps close
    • Authors: Lucas Mearian
      Abstract: The gap between what white men are paid and how much women and minorities earn has narrowed over the past few decades.The latest data from the US Census Bureau shows women now make about 82 cents on the dollar compared with their male counterparts. (Other studies show women make about 98 cents on the dollar compared with men.)But the most recent studies show a much wider gap when it comes to overall compensation, which includes salary, bonuses, equity sharing, healthcare, titles, and any other benefits given to employees. For example, Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) are often issued to an employee through a vesting plan and distribution schedule after achieving required performance milestones.To read this article in full, please click here

  • The awkward thing about Android 13
    • Authors: JR Raphael
      Abstract: Android 13 may be one of Google's strangest Android versions yet. And considering the company we're talking about here, my goodness, that's really saying something.Android 13 — currently in the final phase of its beta development and expected to be launched any moment now — is without a doubt one of the most shape-shifting software updates in Android's history. It'll completely change the way Android looks, feels, and acts and open the door to a whole new side of growth for the platform.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Can Apple's ops team handle this fresh crisis'
    • Authors: Jonny Evans
      Abstract: In Greek mythology, Zeus punished Sisyphus for cheating death by forcing him to roll a huge boulder uphill for eternity. I suspect Apple’s operations teams feels similarly cursed. Not only have they had to adapt to the pandemic, but they had to mitigate the effect of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and must now do what they can to salvage affairs as the situation in Taiwan decays, which could be an existential threat to the company and its business.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Is it bad to give employees too many tech options'
    • Authors: Ryan Faas
      Abstract: I’ve long believed companies should offer workers a choice in the technology they use in the office and when working remote. Doing so lets employees use what they feel is the best choice of devices for their work, it can help attract and retain staff, it lessens the likelihood workers will go rogue and source their own technology (a.k.a. shadow IT), and it establishes a positive relationship between IT and the rest of an organization.Companies like IBM and SAP have documented their experiences in moving to an employee-choice model and have declared it a success. But does that mean it would work for every company' And how do you decide which way to go'To read this article in full, please click here

  • You are the product, but with an Apple twist
    • Authors: Jonny Evans
      Abstract: Back in the old days of just a moment ago, Apple would helpfully note that when you use free services that mine your data to sell for profit, you become the product. But Apple’s new strategy means most of its users are also becoming commoditized, albeit with an Apple twist.I’m talking about average revenue per user.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Where SMBs are with the cloud
    • Authors: Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols
      Abstract: As I said the other week, small businesses can still do well by sticking with their own servers. That said, many of them are also moving toward the cloud.We're in a time of transition: as the most recent annual Flexera State of the Cloud Report showed, 53% of small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) — those with 1,000 or fewer employees — spend more than $1.2 million annually on the cloud.That's a jump from 38% who did so just two years ago.Flexera predicts that within the next year, 63% of SMB workloads and 62% of SMB data will reside in a public cloud. That's a significant increase.To read this article in full, please click here

  • How to protect Windows 10 and 11 PCs from ransomware
    • Authors: Preston Gralla
      Abstract: CryptoLocker. WannaCry. DarkSide. Conti. MedusaLocker. The ransomware threat isn’t going away anytime soon; the news brings constant reports of new waves of this pernicious type of malware washing across the world. It’s popular in large part because of the immediate financial payoff for attackers: It works by encrypting the files on your hard disk, then demands that you pay a ransom, frequently in Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency, to decrypt them.But you needn’t be a victim. There’s plenty that Windows 10 and 11 users can do to protect themselves against it. In this article, I’ll show you how to keep yourself safe, including how to use an anti-ransomware tool built into Windows.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Apple's latest controversy: Expanded App Store advertising
    • Authors: Jonny Evans
      Abstract: Depending on how you look at it, Apple may be ramping up ways developers can  reach out durectly to customers via its App Store – or building its own business at others' expense.What Apple is doingApple has had an advertising business of its own ever since Apple’s then CEO, Steve Jobs, introduced us to iAds in 2010. The scale of that offer was always limited to Apple’s platform, but the service arguably failed, with its technology living on in the form of ad slots in Apple News and the App Store.Apple’s App Store currently hosts just two ad slots, one in the search tab and the other in Search results. You can tell when you are looking at an ad from the blue shade behind the graphic and a small blue badge that says “ad” – these ads are hard to mistake for content.To read this article in full, please click here

  • What is digital employee experience' A key worker retention tool
    • Authors: Bob Violino
      Abstract: As organizations navigate the changes that have come to characterize the workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic — including record-breaking numbers of employees leaving their jobs in the Great Resignation — many realize that they are more vulnerable than ever to facing a depleted workforce.To address this challenge, a growing number of enterprises are deploying digital employee experience (DEX) tools and services to support a modern workforce. Some see DEX as a key to improving workers’ satisfaction and therefore retaining them at a time when many are considering job and career changes.To read this article in full, please click here

  • As technology evolves, obsolescence is a given
    • Authors: Susan Bradley
      Abstract: Yesterday, July 31, 2022, was actually a unique day in technology for those of a certain age. It was the “birthday” of one George Jetson of Saturday morning cartoon fame. “The Jetsons,” set in 2062, was all about what life would be like in the future (at a time when George was 40 years old). The show only lasted one season (24 episodes) but it had an oversized impact on how we think about technology.While we don’t have jetpacks, flying cars, robotic maids or moving sidewalks — yet — slowly but surely, technology is entering every part of our life. Many of the items we rely on today are reflected in the technology George Jetson used: flat-screen televisions, video chats (or Facetime), smartwatches, drones (young Elroy looks like he’s in a drone heading to school), vacuums that operate themselves, digital newspapers, and talking alarm clocks.To read this article in full, please click here

  • 7 Google Pixel settings you should change this second
    • Authors: JR Raphael
      Abstract: Part of the Pixel's primary appeal is the phone's phenomenal software. All Android experiences are not created equal, as anyone who's spent seven seconds with an out-of-the-box Samsung setup can tell you, and Google's clean and simple approach to Android is a huge piece of what makes a Pixel so pleasant to use.Still, while a Pixel may be perfectly peachy from the moment you power it on, Google's smartphone software is full of hidden features and advanced options that can make your experience even more exceptional.And whether you're setting up a shiny new Pixel 6a right now or cradling an older Pixel model in your suspiciously sticky paw, taking the time to think through some of your phone's most easily overlooked settings can take your Pixel adventure to a whole new level.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Swiss cities top ranking of best places to build tech careers
    • Authors: Jon Gold
      Abstract: Bern and Zürich are the best cities in the world in which to pursue a tech career, based on data released this week by Scotland-based digital skills development organization CodeClan.CodeClan’s study begins with the top 100 cities in the world based on Mercer’s Quality of Living rankings, and uses a combination of several weighted indices to determine their suitability for technology workers, including average salary, rent and broadband connection speed, as well as tech companies per capita.Tech companies per capita a key metricThe results show the two Swiss cities atop the rankings, based mostly on the large numbers of tech companies per capita in each place, coupled with high available broadband speeds. US cities fill out the rest of the top 10, though only two of the country’s more traditional tech hubs—Seattle and Boston—made that particular cut. San Franciso ranked 36th, due in large part to its extremely high cost of living, and New York 68th, for similar reasons as San Francisco.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Apple, the move to renewable energy, and why it matters
    • Authors: Jonny Evans
      Abstract: Apple generally makes good decisions. Its decision to pivot to services and subscriptions means that around 40% of its gross revenues after costs in the last quarter were generated by those two buckets of revenue. But that’s not the only smart decision the company has made of late; the decision to migrate its entire business to renewable energy is equally far sighted.Here's why that matters.Services = Servers + electricityApple’s services live in the cloud. And because they're cloud based, they use energy — lots of it. Now, I’ve glanced though the company’s environmental reports and I’m not 100% clear just how much energy those services use. But it’s not inconsequential.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Overdependence on PCs and servers drag Intel down
    • Authors: Varun Aggarwal
      Abstract: A combination of macroeconomic headwinds and internal problems led to Intel's revenue dropping 22% to $15.3 billion in the second quarter of 2022, marking the seventh straight quarter of decline for the chipmaker.Revenue was also 15% below the company’s original guidance for the quarter. “Due to the difficult macroeconomic environment together with our own execution challenges, our results for the quarter were well below expectations and necessitate a significant revision to our full-year financial guidance,” Pat Gelsinger, CEO at Intel, said in a call with analysts.While the macroeconomic environment has been impacting the overall semiconductor industry, Intel has been impacted far worse than expected. The company lowered its revenue expectation for the fiscal year to $65 billion-68 billion, down from an earlier forecast of $76 billion. Even profitability is expected to decline further, as the company revised profit estimates for the fiscal year to $2.30 per share, from $3.60 per share estimated earlier.To read this article in full, please click here

  • How remote work disrupted global supply chains
    • Authors: Paul Gillin
      Abstract: More than two years after COVID-19 triggered a worldwide supply chain crisis, disruptions continue to make every trip to the supermarket or hardware store an adventure.The problem contributes to inflation, and even shortages of products made close to home. Shippers and truckers have received much blame, but the root of the crisis can be traced directly to the business desktop.Remote work, or the chain of unlikely events it kicked off more than two years ago, altered manufacturers’ expectations about demand.Their misconceptions were compounded by a change in buyer behavior that upended the warehouse and delivery networks they had cultivated for decades.To read this article in full, please click here

Over the last decade, the US's largest bank has shifted its IT strategy. Just as with the rest of the financial services industry, its focus has been on supporting its growing digital banking business through the lastest technologies, such as cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML).When it comes to AI/ML knowledge, recent college graducates don't necessarily need to be an experts, but they should be able to speak about the value at a high level, and be open to growth/training opportunities in those areas.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Apple’s Q3: Services, iPhone, loyalty help company (narrowly) beat

    • Authors: Jonny Evans
      Abstract: Apple late Thursday announced yet another new June quarter record, confirming strong demand for iPhones, pointing to record services revenue while admitting it couldn’t make enough Macs or iPads to meet demand.The company announced record revenue of $83 billion for the period, up 2% year over year. Quarterly earnings per diluted share hit $1.20, at the high end of analysts' consensus of $82.81 billion.Moving forward, Apple remains on track to keep spending money, even as the global economy may be slowing. “We believe in investing through the downturn,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “But we are being more deliberate in doing so in recognition of the environment.”
      He stressed that while recruitment may decelerate, the company continues to grow.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Windows 10 Insider Previews: A guide to the builds
    • Authors: Preston Gralla
      Abstract: Microsoft never sleeps. In addition to its steady releases of major and minor updates to the current version of Windows 10, the company frequently rolls out public preview builds to members of its Windows Insider Program, allowing them to test out — and even help shape — upcoming features.Windows Insiders can choose to receive preview builds in one of three channels. The Dev Channel is where new features are introduced for initial testing, regardless of which Windows release they’ll eventually end up in. The Beta Channel lets you test more polished features that will be deployed in the next major Windows release. Insiders in the Dev and Beta Channels are now testing Windows 11 builds.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Real Messenger: The birth of an industry-centric social network'
    • Authors: Rob Enderle
      Abstract: After meeting with Real Messenger execs this week, I’ve decided the company has come up with something with implications well beyond the real estate market it’s currently focused on: a social network that’s actually useful for business. The big problem with current social networks is that they try to be everything to everyone and, instead, fail to really focus on anyone for anything. Facebook, for instance, does have groups. But they are moderated by users, aren’t targeted by developers to create unique and powerful experiences, and live under the same rules and annoyances that plague the rest of the service. To read this article in full, please click here

  • Windows 11 Insider Previews: What’s in the latest build'
    • Authors: Preston Gralla
      Abstract: Windows 11 has been released, but behind the scenes, Microsoft is constantly working to improve the newest version of Windows. The company frequently rolls out public preview builds to members of its Windows Insider Program, allowing them to test out — and even help shape — upcoming features.The Windows Insider program is divided into three channels:
      The Dev Channel is where new features are introduced for initial testing, regardless of which Windows release they’ll eventually end up in. This channel is best for technical users and developers and builds in it may be unstable and buggy.
      In the Beta Channel, you’ll get more polished features that will be deployed in the next major Windows release. This channel is best for early adopters, and Microsoft says your feedback in this channel will have the most impact.
      The Release Preview Channel typically doesn’t see action until shortly before a new feature update is rolled out. It’s meant for final testing of an upcoming release and is best for those who want the most stable builds.The Beta and Release Preview Channels also receive bug-fix builds for the currently shipping version of Windows 11.To read this article in full, please click here
