  • Is it finally time to upgrade to Windows 11'
    • Abstract: Disclosure: Microsoft is a client of the author.I’ve been following Windows since the 1980s. I was one of the designated launch analysts during the Windows 95 launch and in some ways, I owe my success as an analyst to that launch. It put me on the map as an influential analyst.I recall some of the pain of those initial years when, for instance, I put Windows 95 on my CEO’s laptop — and bricked it in the process. Then I heard an engineer at Intel had put it on a production machine in one of Intel’s Fabs and crashed the FAB. That was Windows 95, and it began what was to become a long-term relationship between me and Windows. Now, with Windows 11’s latest update in place, it looks as if this latest version of the OS is ready for the limelight. Let’s look at why it may finally be time to deploy Windows 11.To read this article in full, please click here

  • iPhone users complain iOS 16 is a battery drain, has other issues
    • Abstract: Two weeks after Apple launched iOS 16, users continue to complain the mobile OS is sucking their battery power far too quickly.Battery life tends to take an initial hit when new OSes are rolled out because updates to software and apps, as well as the reindexing files, photos, and other functions, taxes the processor, and thus, the battery. But over time, those background updates cease, and battery usage levels typically return to normal levels.According to the business analytics service Mixpanel, about 13.3% of iPhone users have upgraded to iOS 16 since it was rolled out on Sept. 12. That's when reports of battery issues started popping up.To read this article in full, please click here

    • Abstract: Apple, Google, Microsoft and others have essentially locked users into their web browsers through default settings in their OS platforms, giving the platform makers an unfair advantage over competitors, according to a new report by Firefox maker Mozilla.Mozilla researchers found each platform maker “wants to keep people within its walled garden” by steering mobile and desktop users to Apple Safari, Google Chrome, or Microsoft Edge. “All five major platforms today (Google, Apple, Meta, Amazon, Microsoft) bundle their respective browsers with their operating systems and set them as the operating system default in the prime home screen or dock position,” Mozilla wrote in a 66-page report.To read this article in full, please click here

  • How to pick the right DEX tool for the best digital employee experience
    • Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically changed the way people work, as working from home became the rule rather than the exception. Moving forward, many companies are continuing to support 100% remote workforces, or they’re adopting a hybrid work model, with some employees working in the corporate office, some working at home, and many splitting their time between the two.These remote and hybrid workers rely on company-provided technology to communicate with managers, co-workers, and customers. Savvy organizations want to provide every worker with a good digital employee experience (DEX) — the perception that employees have about the technology they interact with for work. To do that, companies need total visibility into how their employees are experiencing the technology they depend on to do their jobs.To read this article in full, please click here

  • Google Sheets power tips: How to use filters and slicers
    • Abstract: If you’re building a large spreadsheet in Google Sheets or need to read one that has a hefty amount of data, it’s helpful to apply filters to it. A filter lets you hide specific data (such as numbers or text) inside a range of cells that you select so that you can see what your spreadsheet looks like without this information. In other words, it filters out the data that you don’t want to see in your spreadsheet.For example, you can design a filter that shows only cells that have numbers that are 50 or greater inside them, and another filter that shows only cells containing numbers of 30 or less. You could then switch between these two filters to see your spreadsheet in these different ways — and then return to your spreadsheet’s original state with its full cell data.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
