A few days ago, I shared with you Why I bit the bullet and finally switched from Outlook to Gmail . To say that article generated letters would be an understatement. In addition to the comments from ZDNet readers in the article itself, I got a steady stream of email messages, Twitter comments, and Facebook opinions and questions. Since there were so many different things discussed by all of you, I'm dedicating this article to addressing most of them (including those where you question my sanity). I expect to post some more detailed how-tos later on that go into specifics of what tools and solutions I'm using. But first, can we talk? My mail system is better than your mail system Are you saying you think Gmail is better than Outlook (client) or Outlook with Exchange? Not at all. Outlook and Exchange are a brilliant team and I've benefited from using them for over a decade. However, as time has gone on, my daily usage patterns and workflow have changed, and the Outlook/Exchange … [Read more...] about Your questions answered: Why I switched from Outlook to Gmail

How accurate is Apples? Hmm. Let's forget to list that stuff Victor, right. You don't want to paint anyone but Apple in a better light. Speaking of actual facts right Victor. Not to mention they have three different camera models for OEMs. Whereas Apple is always secret and not into giving out specs. Oh if the specs are given out, then they will compare things like a S8 to a iPhone 7 plus. Yet the S8 + … [Read more...] about Comments for : KGI: Apple is two years ahead of Qualcomm with 3D sensing tech

Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009) Unfortunately, I don't know if there's a way for Google to force the app "developer" to refund the money that people paid for this scam. posted on 08 Apr 2014, 08:02 0 15. mturby (unregistered) apple would been courteous enough to refund the money. posted on 08 Apr 2014, 08:08 3 17.

And as bad as Apple is in refund processes, Google is even worse. I hope they do the right thing. I dont see that happening though, given they changed refund time from 1 day to 15 minutes. 15 minutes isnt even enough for some apps to download and install, even on a high speed wifi connection.

Spiceworks users are a loyal bunch, judging by their raves about the open-source IT management software.When we asked IT pros to write in and tell Network World about their favorite enterprise IT products, the Spiceworks user community responded in droves. (See the full recap of IT pros’ favorite products here.) We limited the main product roundup to one rave per product, but it seemed a shame not to share all the praise for Spiceworks’ features, cost (free!) and community support.FAVE RAVES: 22 top picks from IT prosHere’s just a sample of what Spiceworks users had to say:“It's without a doubt the most versatile SMB systems management tools I have every used, with an incredible community behind it,” says Joseph Foran, director of IT at FSW Inc., a social service agency in Bridgeport, Conn.Full-featured systems management tools were too expensive for the nonprofit, so Foran got by with a hodgepodge of different management tools until he found … [Read more...] about What’s So Great About Spiceworks?
This blog post is also available as a TechRepublic gallery and a TechRepublic download.Even though Microsoft Windows Vista has been out for a while and is available from just about anywhere, most organizations — at least for the time being — are sticking with the tried and true Windows XP.By sticking with Windows XP, these organizations can continue to enjoy XP's stability and familiarity. However, XP users will not be able to take advantage of some of Vista's new security features, such as user access control. But there are a number of steps that can be taken to keep Windows XP running smoothly and securely.The assumption is that you are using Windows XP Professional, although most of these steps will also work for the Home edition. Most of these steps assume that your Windows XP system is not joined to a domain or that you are in a very small workgroup. Further, although there are dozens of steps you can take to secure your Windows XP system; these 14 reasonable steps are … [Read more...] about How do I… Secure Microsoft Windows XP Professional?
Maintaining security is the irresolvable angst that all network—wired and wireless—administrators feel. So why focus on Wi-Fi security? To explain, I wanted to highlight a very interesting chat transcript about wireless security on NetworkWorld. The chat features an electronic hero/mentor of mine and renowned wireless security expert, Joshua Wright. The fact that he authored a SANS course "Assessing and Securing Wireless Networks" provides insight into his abilities. I would like to think that I share his unique sense of humor and fondness for sushi as professed in the name of his website: "willhackforsushi.com".The chat entertained many great questions and the NetworkWorld moderators; in particular Julie Bort did an admirable job fielding the questions and presenting them to Joshua. Since the session was quite long I thought I might highlight several of the questions that hopefully will be of particular interest to the members.Question: How secure is WPA-PSK or … [Read more...] about Wi-Fi Security is always one step behind
Sysinternals has been around for quite some time and was acquired by Microsoft in 2006. As many of you know, these are great little tools for getting some heavy hitting Windows things done and sometimes done better than when using the built in tools for a task.The entire suite of products is available for download at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb842062.aspxWhile this is the easiest way to get the tools because they are bundled together, there are some tools that I find myself using far more than others. This post will focus on my five favorite tools in the Sysinternals collection (or the ones that I use the most).I listed these together because I typically use them in that order. The goal here is to see processes on a machine — with PsList, I find the process ID, and then use PsKill to terminate said process. Suppose a system on your network is performing very slowly, Task Manager is a great tool but only works on the local machine and many times interrupting … [Read more...] about Five favorite Sysinternals tools and what they do
When I put out a call for promising young scientists to be part of Forbes’ annual 30 Under 30 project, no name came up more than that of Jack Andraka, the 16-year-old who created a prototype cancer diagnostic test and won the top $75,000 prize at Intel’s annual high school science fair. Get the Free Tracker App to find a Nintendo Switch in Stock And no wonder. For two years, Andraka has been everywhere. The Intel win resulted in a barrage of media appearances on 60 Minutes, which said the test “might save countless lives,” ABC World News Tonight, and Forbes. He was honored as a “Champion of Change” at the White House and was Michelle Obama’s guest during the 2013 State of the Union Address. He has given many TEDx talks, the most prominent of which has generated more than 1 million views. These presentations have consistently portrayed Andraka’s achievements as Earth-shaking. A Forbes article, for instance, described the test … [Read more...] about Why Biotech Whiz Kid Jack Andraka Is Not On The Forbes 30 Under 30 List
